The Dark Knight Rises Could any movie have topped The Dark Knight, whether in reality or in moviegoers' imaginations? Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy wraps up with this final installment, starring Tom Hardy as the marble-mouthed villain Bane, notorious for breaking Batman's back and almost taking down the civilized world in a sort of Occupy Gotham movement by way of terrorism. It's overlong and strangely conventional, but undeniably well made -- and Anne Hathaway absolutely steals the show as Catwoman. Extras: An hourlong featurette on the Batmobile over the years from comic to screen; featurettes on production, specifically the plane hijacking scene; a half-hour on the main characters (though, inexplicably, Joseph Gordon-Levitt isn't included); cinematographer Wally Pfister explaining his approach; four trailers and art gallery .

my favorite part of tdkr is the reveal of that ras a ghul had a daughter. sorta put things back in place for me. lol i was like duh i knew that what was i thinking, that made me happy. b/c too me there was usually someone behind bane directing him where to go and stuff.
Favorite The Dark Knight Rises scene: When Blake tells him how he figured out Bruce was Batman.
Favorite Indie Movie of the year: Magic Mike
My favorite part of the TDKR is when Bane confronts Batman, I mean, "Mr. Wayne." Followed by hi declaration to fulfill Ras A Agul's Destiny. It was epic.
That scene shocked me
Favorite part of TDKR: stadium scene :)
Favorite part of TDKR is the brief conversation between Bruce and his doctor telling Bruce that he cannot recommend him go heliskiing .
Favorite scene in the TDKR: When Dr. Crane showed up again.
Favorite indie movie: I think The Sound of My Voice.
My favorite scene was Batman first went back in action after his eight year disappearance. Given the long break between The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises, it was almost like an eight year break for the audience as well.
Bane....he was the perfect villain...
Favorite scene in TDKR was the reveal at the end (Spoiler Alert) that Batman was still alive and Robin was in place (hopefully for a sequel some day!).
When Bane breaks Batman's Back. Bad but unforgettable
I loved the first Batman and Bane fight, very brutal plus no music, it reminded me of THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK, when Luke first meets Vader on the carbonite platform
My favorite part of TDKR was the reveal of Robin's name.
The best film of 2012, indie or otherwise, was Beasts of the Southern Wild, hands down. Everyone should watch that movie.

my fave part about tdkr is the very end when alfred spots bruce at the table and then blake is in the batcave. It really shows what Nolan was trying to portray about how batman was a symbol and even though to everyone else batman was dead what he stood for would live on.
my fav part is when robin finds the bat cave
My favorite part of The Dark Knight rises is when Bruce makes it out of the pit and they Chant "RISE"!!!!
My favorite part in TDKR was the beginning when Bane takes over the plane and we here his voice for the first time! So awesome!!! and my favorite indie would have to be moonrise kingdom
This isn't A Car !!
At the football stadium, when the players were running and the bomb blew up
I have to agree with some f the folks below in saying that my favorite scene is the fight between BANE & BATMAN in the sewer. BATMAN never looked more vulnerable.
Favorite moment of TDKR...JGL finding the Batcave. It sets up the new Batman perfectly (hopefully for Justice League!) and was just such an epic conclusion to the Nolan series. We'll see what the future of DC holds but by far the best part of the Nolan Trilogy, bar Heath Ledger.
I don't know if it's technically an indie movie but Anna Karenina was beyond amazing and for me it is easily the best film indie or not of the whole year so far. If that doesn't count Killer Joe is my pick for Indie. (then it would be cosmopolis).
"Welcome to the party, pal."
"I am serious... and don't call me Shirley."
"When am I gonna learn how to punch?"
"These go to eleven."
"Benjamin, have you ever been severely beaten about the face & neck?"
"Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming."
"You're gonna need a bigger boat."
"Jessica's got cable."
