Well, he witnessed his own parents' murders when he was only a kid. That would tend to warp someone to the "dark" side of things. If I'm not mistaken (which I hardly ever am), the original Batman comics were pretty dark for their time. Then, after the Comic Code came into place in the 1950s, Batman became more lighter and goofier. It was only in the late 1970s did we see a return to the "Dark Knight" personna.

But Superman witnessed his whole planet's death when he was only a baby! He is WAY darker!

....but ok, I'm done. My brief google search could not turn up Batman's first Detective Comcis appearance, so truthfully I'm not sure how dark he was, originally. So, you all win. Batman is supposed to be dark and that's just the way it is.  And honestly, the more I think about it, the more I think Batman Begins is way better than even the Burton movies.

Still, anything with Robin cannot be taken seriously, in my opinion.

Is it Eyedolatry to say I didn't like Jack Nicholson as the Joker?  I never actually believed that Jack (Nicholson, not Napier) was as insane as the Joker should've been.  Maybe it's that Nicholson has a tendency to be menacing, which makes him a good villain, whereas the Joker is a great villain because he's unpredictable.

OK, picture this.

You're a sniper guarding an arms deal going down between local gotham hoods, and the Iranian/symbionese/slovakian-communist-rebel-satanists movement.  Now you're rested on your pertch and you're scoping the night gotham skyline to make sure the deal is clear.

From out of your sights, on a distant building you see two faint white slits against the black Gotham backdrop.  Directly next to the two faint white slits is some little man with a small mask covering just the top half of his face.  He's dressed in orange and bright green.  There's a big fat yellow (R) on the front of his orange unitard.

You click your saftey off, and you take aim.  What's it gonna be?  The two faint, barely visible slits of light or the bright orange pigamas with the big fat R, that if you squint, kind of looks like a bulls-eye? 

More proof that Batman is FKing genius.

^Since I actually like 'Batman & Robin' (which seems to be a sin here or anywhere), and since I'm not a big 'Batman' fan, can you please explain how that story proves 'Batman' is genius?

More like "10 Things I Hate About Heath Ledger."  Or "Brokebat Mountain."  Or...um, "Some Lame Movie With Heath Ledger in It."

I kid.  I kid.  I'm sure he'll be a great Joker.  After all, the Joker was a dopey-looking, skater-type pretty boy, wasn't he?

So this one makes it seem like they've combined the characters of two face and the Joker(the coin with the scratched out face, suggesting that Harvey Dent becomes the Joker). What's the deal with that?

Newhook, how is that possible? Harvey Dent is being played by Aaron Eckhart. Forgive me if I missed the sarcasm. But I don't think that's what happens.

And for some reason I thought that trailer was fake. It looked crappy at points.

Anyway, I got nothing against Maggie Gyllenhaal but I think that was poor casting. Katie Holmes did an alright job, you know I wouldn't have minded seeing her in the sequel, but I don't like the replacement. No offense, but I think Maggie Gyllenhaal looks ten years older than she is. I've always thought she looked incredibly old.

Speaking of 10 Things... I thought this mock Dark Knight trailer was hilarious.

That Aaron Eckhart footage is totally from Thank You For Smoking as is the B&W photo with the crossed out faces.  The Gary Oldman footage is from Batman Begins as is much of the footage of Batman.  The helicopter near a highrise is from The Fugitive.  The clown in the driveway bit is from The Game.  The cityscapes are from other movies--movies I've seen, not ones that aren't out yet.

The best Batman movies were Batman Forever and Batman and Robin.  The second one was okay.  The first one didn't really sit too well with me.  The Joker (Jack Nicholson) should've acted more animated.  Plus, the trailers to the first Batman movie made it seem that it was overly exciting. 
That's just my opinion, and that's all I have to say about that.

On a similar note, I read somewhere that if you walk up to George Clooney and say that you saw Batman & Robin in the theaters, he will refund your money, no questions asked.

If you like Dick Spring Batman comics, and you wish Tim Burton would have taken his batman movies in the direction of the Adam West TV series, then Batman & Robin is the batman movie for you.  They even gayed up Batman, so when Poison Ivy uses her love pollen it barely affects him.  Sorry Ivy, he won't let you come between him and Dick Grayson.  The best robin.  Tim Drake must die. :P

That shirt is frekin' awesome, as was the scene that inspired it.

Anyway, looking back, I can see that I caused a small commotion saying that I enjoyed "Batman and Robin."  To be honest, the last time I saw the movie was when I was 9 years old, so maybe it didn't really hit me that it was so bad.  I'd have to see it again to really judge it properly.

All I know is that "The Dark Knight" is my favorite Batman movie right now.

Tell Nick (is it Nick Hogan?  The little bastard gets placed in adult jail Sunday morning.  I hope he gets buttraped Sunday night) that Heath will be spending most of his time in his grave.
