    Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows 2, with $43.5 million... Which makes the headline make absolutely no sense whatsoever.

    Yeah I double checked this number and it is correct, and TDKR according to other sources made what CBRnews said...so maybe they mean non-3D record?

    Yeah I actually looked that up and was puzzled. I guess second place is a record though? Maybe a record for non 3D films since HP: DH 2 was 3D and had an added price tag. Also it did beat the Avengers.

    I saw DKR today, and it is the worst of the 3 movies, I see this movie puttering out QUICK. Noone I know that has seen it thinks it's a great movie. It's convoluted beyond convoluted, with way too much rehashing stuff from previous movies. As well as an extremely flimsy badly written story. Best part, though is Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle. She does play the part very well.

    Just your opinion. The LA Times review was glowing, and Kenneth Turan is noted for being harsh at times. When he kicks off his review with "Truly, darkly genius" then you know it's going to be something.

    It was good... but not as good as The Avengers!

    Count me as the someone who liked the movie. I thought it was brilliant, especially the way it tied back into the other two movies. Nolan is a fantastic storyteller.

    So, since critics are always right, and they rate The Avengers as better than DKR, we can agree that Avengers was the better film, yes?

    No, because Anne Hathaway looks better in a skintight outfit.

    I just was shocked to read such a positive headline from a guy like Turan, and one about a Batfilm, at that.

    Avengers the better film? No, there are more things wrong with it than the entire Nolan Bat-trilogy, and the Phantom Menace ending sucked. It's an effects extravaganza that falls short but one that's a great thrill ride nonetheless. And who didn't enjoy seeing those characters in one film?
