Maybe, but TDKR still looks much better than TDK for the non-IMAX segments imo. Regarding the audio, I don't find it as problematic as some members suggested. And Bane....no difference from the theatrical presentation as far as I can remember. I did understand him back then, and I still undersood him yesterday when I watched it. His voice is indeed too loud compared to the others, but knowing that the character's voice is special to begin with, I don't find it that distracting. I tend to agree with Scott about effects/music and dialogue fighting each other *at times*, yet, I wouldn't call this mix awful
. Surrounds get really busy in this film, as well as an earth-shattering LFE in some scenes. Yes it's a loud mix, but it's also enveloping soundscape that I enjoyed listening to.
