A quick review

From Time, talking about The Dark Knight Rises:
For once a melodrama with pulp origins convinces viewers that it can be the modern equivalent to Greek myths or a Jonathan Swift satire. TDKR is that big, that bitter -- a film of grand ambitions and epic achievement.
I can be pithier than that:
It's a man, dressed in a bat costume.
Update:  I've got my review for The Hobbit worked out already:
Some men, pretending to be short, and a fake dragon.
