That's a bummer.
I seem to like it more and more each time I watch it. I've seen it well over a dozen times now and I just smile ear to ear. It hits all the right notes for me.
Hoping this next one continues the standards set in terms of spectacle and imagination, but with, perhaps, a darker bend.
Abrams & Co keep talking about TDK as a major influence, as a paradigm for what a franchise sequel should look/feel like. I hope they are able to achieve their version of The Dark Knight.
