    I think they should call it Batman Forever 2.

    All I can say is that each and every one of you that love this new version of Batman had better get down on your knees and kiss the butt of this man.



    Because before him Batman was this.



    Frank took that and made this



    All hail Frank Miller

    I'm surprised people aren't giving more props to Chris & Jon for the writing in this flick, by far the most unexpectedly brilliant portion of the production. Lines like

    I wouldn't worry about using a spoiler for that. That quote was used in the previews...

    By the way, my girlfriend loved it more than I did. I think it helped that she just saw BB a few days ago and hasn't seen the original Batmans, the cartoons or read the Comics. I think this movie was actually just as enjoyable as a non-comics movie. That's why it's the best super-hero/comic book movie ever.

    I had never seen anything Batman-related until just a few hours ago, never read any of the comics, etc. Just not my thing.

    But the movie was excellent. Heath Ledger was amazing and it was SWEET to see Tiny Lister in an important part of the movie.

    First off...do we really need these spoiler tags?

    Second off...This is maybe gonna sound really bad, but I really did like the movie a lot. It's a definite 8-9 out of 10 level and one of the better superhero flicks ever made.

    i just saw TDK last night and i'm still trying to process my thoughts but here is a quick run-down

    Spoiler Spoiler:
    Basically.

    Spoiler Spoiler:


    Couldn't agree more. And I'll even say that very few of the action scenes were actually remarkable.

    Spoiler Spoiler:


    Spoiler Spoiler:


    Agreed. Underwhelmed is the best word to describe most of the action sequences I thought. Maybe it's because of all the hype going in...but there was very little in many of those that were things I hadn't seen before.

    Other weird issues I had.

    Spoiler Spoiler:


    Spoiler Spoiler:


    I didn't mind it, per se', but it was weird. Made him very one-dimensional as a character, which I guess is somewhat fine when he's suited up...but that kind of carried over to Bruce Wayne too. I think he "went through" a lot more emotionally in Begins.

    Spoiler Spoiler:


    Spoiler Spoiler:


    Spoiler Spoiler:


    Spoiler Spoiler:


    I also thought there were two specific things that set Ledger's Joker from being very good to great was his mouth tendancies and his laugh. It really reminded me a lot of Dustin Hoffman's character in Rain Man. I don't mean the actual characters but how they played the roles. The littlest things like Heath wetting his lips like that in such timed places just completely sold it. I thought the pauses in his speech when he would do it were perfect. It could have been corny. I had a hard time even picturing Heath under that makeup. No wonder why he was in the mental state that he was. I really hope he wins awards for that role, because embodied that role.
    I couldn't agree more. Heath was incredible. Truly remarkable. And it was mostly the little physical facial ticks and other things...and of course the line delivery. I gotta assume he's already got the posthumous Oscar locked up. He'll actually be only the second actor to receive one (Peter Finch won Best Actor for Network). He'll also be one of the younger Best Supporting Actors of all time.

    The two highlights of the film, IMO.

    That was a great line. But like a bunch of other really good ones, did it have to be repeated so many times? I got it the first time. Or at least the second.



    After a Naptime-like paragraph break...I just wanna say I really, really liked this movie. It was great. I love superhero flicks and this was one of the best. I'm only pointing out flaws cause all the praise has already been said. Had I gone in without the "THIS FILM WILL WIN BEST PICTURE" and "It's barely even a superhero movie it's so full of drams" hype, I probably would have fewer problems. But aside from most every Heath part
    Spoiler Spoiler:
    and Two Face's awesome make-up, there really wasn't much where I was like "WOW...this is better than I ever even thought it could be."

    I probably could have just saved 500 words here and just said "I preferred Iron Man" and summed it up just as quickly. Sorry. X2 was also certainly better.

    I just got back from watching this movie. I won't spoil it for those yet to see, but there are a few things I would like to say about it.

    1. It's a must see. And I don't mean on DVD, I mean in the theater. Even though I will definately be getting it on Blu-ray and am looking forward to seeing it in HD.

    2. This movie is one of the most impressive action movies I have ever seen. Amazing special effects, very creative sequences and overall very well done. And I don't know if it was just the theater I was in, but the sound was crazy.

    3. Heath Ledger was great. His performance completley blows away Nicholsons' interpretation from the older Batman movie. He should definately get at least an oscar nomination for it, IMO. I would probably vote for him to win.

    I don't like super hero movies in general, and I wasn't even a Batman fan growing up. I find most of them rather cheesy and made more for children. But after seeing Batman Begins I changed my mind, at least for this series of Batman movies.

    Keep in mind this movie is pushing three hours including previews and what not. But it was so good I didn't leave the theater to even go to the bathroom, which was a struggle for about the last hour and a half BTW. It already has me looking forward to the next one. It's just a shame Ledger won't be in it.

    Over all I really liked TDK but its a lot different than BB. I liked Begins a little better, mainly due to the story line.

    Box office report. Proves word of mouth is excellent on this movie


    http://usatoday.printthis.clickabili...partnerID=1663



    By Donna Freydkin, USA TODAY
    Holy ka-ching, Batman! The Dark Knight is still flying high.
    Since opening at midnight Thursday, the Batman Begins sequel has become:

    • The fastest movie to reach $200 million. It took five days; Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest and Spider-Man3 did it in eight.

    • The No. 2 Monday grosser and No. 2 Tuesday grosser, with $24.5 million and $20.9 million, respectively. Quite a feat considering the record holders (Spider-Man 2, Transformers) were released during holiday periods.

    "Most movies would kill to do that on a weekend night," says analyst Gitesh Pandya, who runs BoxOfficeGuru.com. "That tells you this movie will have long-term playability. It's incredible."

    A lot more green will roll in this weekend, says Jeff Bock, an analyst at box-office tracking firm Exhibitor Relations. He expects the PG-13 film to at least match Shrek 2's record for the second-weekend gross ($72.2 million).

    "I'd bet the Batcave on it," Bock says.

    Dan Fellman, distribution chief for Warner Bros., which released The Dark Knight, predicts the movie will also be the fastest to get to $300 million. "The major summer films, for the most part, have opened," he says. "The competition isn't bulked up."

    Advance sales at movie-ticket sites have stayed high. Says Rick Butler, chief operating officer of Fandango.com: "It's our strongest post-release seller of all time."

    A lot of that is because of return customers.

    "By Sunday, we were getting an enormous amount of repeat business," Fellman says. And at Fandango, a survey of people who had seen the movie indicated that 64% planned to see it again.

    And no one thinks star Christian Bale's arrest Tuesday after a dustup with his mother and sister can stop this Batmobile. The Dark Knight, Bock says, "is such a juggernaut that it's not going to matter. It's on a trajectory all its own."

    As Dark Knight producer Charles Roven sees the numbers come in, "I'm scratching my head in a very happy way.

    "I've been doing this for a while," he says. "I made my first film (Heart Like a Wheel) in 1983. I've had what I thought was a lot of success, but never anything like this."

    Clearly. I'm just saying it was unfortunate timing is all. Not Nolan or Eckhart's fault or anything. It's just sort of like with Capote and Infamous both being pretty good movies but Infamous came out second so it lost a little cache' through not fault of its own.

    I think a lot of your questions wouldn't have been so much questions if you've seen the first movie. I'm assuming here.
