I'm in the same boat and had problems understanding some lines because of that. (I also have problems with song lyrics.) It's a bit weird, because I'm pretty sure my hearing is good; it's something with the interpretation.
Spoiler:The supposed passage of time in this movie was so weird it broke my suspension of disbelief.
You make some good points and I wouldn't have thought about most of what I say below without your post, but
(Incidentally I also didn't think the LOTR movies did a good job indicating the passage of time. Before I read the books, I'd have guessed that the folks hung out in Rivendell for a couple weeks or something. But no, it was two months from the Council of Elrond until when the left. Etc. The whole of Fellowship probably took 5-10x longer than I'd have guessed.)
Spoiler:Given that Bane superficially looks younger than Bruce
I'm not sure I'd agree with that, especially once Bruce cleans himself up. But whatever.
Spoiler:Talia is supposedly both rich enough and wields enough influence in Gotham society to host a successful charity ball. Reaching such a position takes time.
