Didn't saw any of this Batman and I'm glad, otherwise it would have gave me an eye illness. Temporary, mind you, for the next few movies.

Of course I know that Batman Begins and Batman Returns are entirely different movies. I was just agreeing winna that Michelle Pfeiffer was just awesome in it.

And I like Batman Begins as well. I liked how Batman was being introduced in that movie and I love Cillian Murphy.

I agree 100% about Cillian Murphy. I was always frustrated how in The Dark Knight how he's there for 5 minutes and then forgotten. You established Scarecrow now do something with him! I mean yes he's in a hunk of Batman Begins but the actual villain of Scarecrow is barely there and his concept is awesome.

Anyway, I prefer the old school Batman and Batman Returns for a few reasons, not that I don't like Christopher Nolan's movies. There's a real nostalgic (Bat-credit card!?) feel to them, I mean this was the Batman I knew growing up. It also gave way to the amazing animated series (which I proudly own). Also I love Michael Keaton, he is my favorite Batman. That smile he does under the mask that he does is so sinister and awesome. I've always been disappointed at how downplayed his character is in Batman Returns, it's all about the villains, which isn't bad, but I love Keaton's portrayal and considering this was his last outing as Batman it frustrates me that he isn't used that much. Regardless, there is something very comic book like of those movies which is why I like it, the films know that they are just that -a comic book- and that's how it feels. Plus ain't never been a cooler fucking Batmobile:



I think TDKR is going to suffer majorly from the loss of Heath Ledger, for he was the reason that TDK was so popular, even if he hadn't unfortunately died. However there is no doubt that I won't see the next one because I think that this mature and realistic take on the Batman franchise is fantastic. I prefer the Tim Burton ones simply because I'm a fan of old school (I mean Batman Returns came out the year I was born). Nolan's Batman has brought this new respectful age of making a comic book movie more than that, exploring the pathos of the characters and making a realistic connection with an otherwise adolescent concept.

That being said...

This new Spider-Man movie has given me mixed feelings. For starters I hate Spider-Man 3, so much so that I hate acknowledging its existence. So I am happy to see a new film that doesn't seem to be taking the same route as SM3. However I've watched the trailer a few times and there just isn't any soul to what I'm seeing. Despite the cheesiness of Raimi's films, they again are very much like Batman 1989, in that it knows what it is and uses the potential to the fullest extent. Also I thought Tobey Maguire was a great Spider-Man. But I admire that Andrew Garfield actually looks like a 17 year-old kid. I don't really care for his new costume, and like I said the trailer didn't impress me with it's first-person point of view of him climbing buildings and such. And I'm sorry this just irks me to no end, how is it that you have Emma Stone, a red-head playing Gwen Stacey? She should have been Mary-Jane! I know it's to differentiate itself from the previous movies but she would have been the perfect Mary-Jane! Regardless I'll still end up seeing this movie anyway, though right now I'm not too enthused.

Ok...think I'm done.

Indeed. As far as I'm concerned, the 1989 Batmobile is the definitive version. That's what the Batmobile looks like, for me. If I ever own a replica of that, I'll be the happiest nerd on Earth.

The bat credit card is from Batman Forever with George Clooney, actually...I don't think Tim Burton would have stood for such blasphemy, or at least not back then.

Actually I think Emma Stone is a natural blonde. After Judd Apatow made her dye it red for Superbad she decided to have it that way most of the time.

Sorry, I guess I am in a correcting mood right now.

From imdb:

Although she's known as a redhead, her natural hair color is blonde. It was Judd Apatow who suggested she change her hair color for Superbad (2007) and she liked it so much that she decided to keep it.

Anyway this video answers the important question of who was the absolute BEST Batman: George Clooney or Val Kilmer.

The absolute best Batman so far has been Michael Keaton. Close second: Adam West. Reasonable third: Christian Bale. Then Clooney, then Kilmer in a very distant fourth and fifth respectively.

It's funny because I don't think about how important Batman's voice is compared to Bruce Wayne. I think Keaton's transition was always smoother in that his Batman voice was threatening and cool, why his Bruce Wayne voice was logical and normal. Then Christian Bale's Wayne is the smooth and normal and then all of a sudden it sounds like a grizzly bear is trying to escape from his throat. I didn't mind it when I watched TDK but when it started coming out in freaking Terminator: Salvation, that's when it really started to bug me.

I also laugh at how Clooney's Batman didn't even bother because honestly, he's goddamn George Clooney, his voice alone is badass enough to earn your respect either as Batman, Wayne, or even a schizophrenic hobo who thinks he's talking to a squirrel.

Keaton for teh winz1!

Weird, I actually concur with SpaceMaM here.  Comic books, superheroes and action films are generally boring.

I'd have to say that I also probably qualify as a member of the Honourary Girl club. Though I'd replace 'generally boring' with 'of no particular interest' in Svip's statement.

I did, however, like The Incredibles.

Speaking of voices and Batman... and I know this is a really belated observation to be making, but did anybody notice that bit in TDK where Joker's video of the batman impersonator is played, and Ledger suddenly kind of roars at the man in a really freaky animalistic voice? That was kind of creepy inhuman. I quite liked it.

Depends how it's done. If it's shaped in the unlikely unbalanced and completely unflyable manner of the previous incarnations (like, a giant bat-symbol) then I will rage. Nolan's going pretty realistic on the whole thing though, so it will probably be something believable - some piece of military surplus.

Batman would need a plane though, he can't go renting one all the time like when he went to Hong Kong, "I'm going to allow this..."

Looks as though wings might be added in post-production.
I dunno... It kind of looks like something someone might build. Lockheed skunk works. A manned stealth fighter with variable geometry and thrust-vectoring. Looks cool. Maybe a little bit too much tech for a one-man war on crime. Maybe if it were a one-man war on North Korea...
Heh... Batman versus North Korea.

I have mixed feelings about the Superman reboot. On one hand, I like the old films, and Christopher Reeve, and all that. On the other, I feel like it needs an update.

Although, the actor who is playing Superman is English. But then again, so is Christian Bale, and I liked those Batman movies.

We shall see....

I actually didn't hate Superman Returns as much as others did. It wasn't an amazing film, but it was enjoyable enough.

Still, interested to see what they turn out with the new one.

Superman's new costume has that same unnecessary textured effect that spider-man has been inflicted with on the big-screen.
Why do they do that?
