Today is the official release of The Dark Knight Rises today on DVD, Blu-ray, and streaming (buying it through one of those affiliate links will help Overthinking It), and we didn’t want to let the date go by without subjecting it to a level of scrutiny it probably doesn’t deserve.
So we’re very happy to bring you a The Dark Knight Rises episode of The Overview, our series of alternative commentaries to your favorite movies. You can buy and download the track easily, and when you play it alongside your own copy of the film, you’ll have the experience of watching a movie with your pals from the Internet, the Overthinking It writers.
The discussion focuses on the film’s plot and visual storytelling, the relationship between order and authority, symbols of water and light shining from above, and what it truly means to rise in the context of the film.

The Overview is a series of alternative commentary tracks from Overthinking It, where the Overthinkers watch and discuss your favorite movies for your edutainment. The commentary is meant to be played while watching the movie, which means you’ll need your own copy of the movie and a way to both watch and listen to a MP3 track in order to take full advantage of what you’re buying.
