    for your consideration....

    But the Academy Members should only vote based on the quality of the movie -- not the tragic events surrounding the screening.

    this was perhaps the best movie I've ever seen. i know that sounds extreme but the emotional connection i had with each scene was incredible. i had white fists in each action scene and at one point in the movie i accidentally screamed "nooooo!!!!!" it was AMAZING. I'm now being cat woman for halloween.

    I really didn't think it was that good. It was kind of confusing and there was too little action for how long the movie was. I went with 3 other people and they didn't think the movie was that fantastic either

    The first and second Dark Knight was much better.

    Although I thought the first and second Dark Knight were better, I would agree that Anne Hathaway did an outstanding job as Catwomen. She was defiently the highlight to this film.

    Missed the "Best Picture" part of the title. I think some technical Oscar nominations would be well deserved, maybe nominations for cinematography and director too.

    Yes, of course, this movie should be consider for any cinematic award as are all movies!!

    The events which occurred at its' premiere in Colorado have absolutely NOTHING to do with the movie itself. Not so much as one of its' hard-working members, ranging from actors, extras, directors, producers, wardrobe, cinematographers, musicians, sound/light technicians, even the caterers who all labored to bring us this film ~ were remotely responsible for that tragic event. The film should be judged on its' own merit!!

    I definitely think it should be up for consideration, there are other movies that should/probably win it, but Dark Knight certainly deserves consideration.

    And furthermore, what went down in Colorado should have no bearing on "The Dark
    Knight Rises" elegiblity for an Oscar. To do so would be to allow some non-human,
    with a thirst for blood and an itchy trigger finger to back it up, not only to win, but to also
    encourage others of his ilk to commit other similarly monsterous acts. To that end, we will always have these varmits with us and we need to demonstrate to them that while they may win the battles, but good people always win the wars. After all, Batman ultimately defeated
    not only Bain, but also the Joker before him.

    It's not that good is it? Costumes and special FX doesn't make a good movie.

    Only the third best film in the trilogy, full of plot holes and rather disappointing. Good, if somewhat silly entertainment, but not a great film.

    When I think of Oscar worthy movies......I don't usually think of actions/super-hero flicks. But this trilogy is really amazing. While it wasn't really a movie for everybody/"the masses", I did think The Watchmen (2008) deserved some awards. TO really enjoy that movie, you have to have a special appreciation for film/movies. It was/is IMO, the greatest superhero movie of all time. X-Men 1st Class & Origins was very good though too.

    It was good, but having seen it, and looking back at the other movies that have and will come out this year, I have to say it really isn't in the running for "best picture". Maybe another category, but not "Best Picture".

    On the sheer technical marvel of this film, Nolan truly created an epic that is breathtaking.

    Aside from Hathaway and Bale, this film had little to offer. It was boring as hell, and I found myself not caring if the citizens of Gotham perished because of a bomb.

    It was an awesome movie...especially with the standard of the movies beforehand in the triology set. I prefered Heath Ledger so The Dark Knight was my favourite, simply because of The Joker, but this did not disappoint!
