What's with all the mumbling in these Batman movies? Does the director not realize that people in front of the screen can't comprehend a thing?

Chris Nolan is ambitious, I'll give him that. He sometimes bites off more than he can chew, but his movies are never boring. They're well-crafted, visually stunning, and keep you on edge. I just wish he'd simplify his storytelling. Go easy on plot twists, tell a more linear story. Not every movie needs to be Inception or Memento. The Miranda/Talia plot twist in DKR was the movie's Achilles' heel, IMO: you can see it coming from miles, and it's poorly executed, mainly because you don't care for the character in the first place. Nolan should have tightened up the script or rewrote the character in order to make her more than just a plot device... but then the whole storyline would have had to be redone, right?

That being said, the Dark Knight trilogy is still very enjoyable moviemaking.
