Yeah, I have. It's a terrible movie by every standard I've ever applied to other movies, but such a guilty pleasure. I love how random and anarchistic it is. And Paul Elstak of course! Best thing is, the actors did the German dubbing themselves, so you have them speaking with this ridiculous Dutch accent, which just kills me.

Among many other things, I thought that the Batman Keaton portrayed was a much darker and intimidating looking Batman then the one Bale is playing. I don't blame Bale for looking ridiculous in the costume and sounding really bad while trying to mask his voice, I think that whoever made the final decision on this didn't think things through. He plays a good Bruce Wayne but a horrible Batman. It's everything around the Batman character that keeps these new Batman movies watchable.




Old batman was more comical than serious.

Nolan is smart to avoid the cheesier look of the older batmans.

It's been building up to this last one and it'll be ineteresting to see what batman will sacrifice to save gotham. Maybe he'll give his life(or back!), or maybe he'll pass on the batman torch to Gordan-Levetts character...

That's even more pathetic to lie about that in a movie thread. Fuckin' twat.

I feel the same way but in reverse. The part of the mask that opens up around Bale's mouth looks silly to me and his voice is absolutely hysterical (although that is not an aesthetic issue), among some other things. The only "issue" I would have to agree with others about in regards to when Keaton was in costume was the fact that he couldn't turn his neck but it doesn't really bother me at all and really never did until others actually pointed it out. After Batman Returns, I think the Batman costumes and movies in general were definitely cheesy.

The last two Nolan movies have been entertaining enough for me to like them, though, not to mention his interpretation of the villains are really good. I'm looking forward to Bane. Knightfall was a very good story and I'm curious to see how much, if anything, he uses from that story line for this movie.

The voice Bale added on makes sense in terms of what Bruce would do. 1. It better enables him to hide his identity and 2. It can intimidate lesser thugs of Gotham and 3. It works into the persona of batman versus bruce wayne.

The thing that bugs me is the bat mobile and the batpod making ridiculous sounds that it couldn't possible make.

It is funny to think batman can't turn his head.


Posted by WittyHandle on Jul-13-2012 04:32:

Functionally, a change in voice is necessary of course. It's just that the one they went with sounds silly.


Posted by Quazar on Jul-13-2012 04:44:

I liked the Bat-voice in Begins. TDK enhanced it a little too much. It will most likely be more toned down in TDKR.


Posted by GoSpeedGo! on Jul-19-2012 23:14:

This film is actually a bit of a disappointment. Some of the trademark, love/hate aspects of Nolan's storytelling (twists & turns) are not handled well.

It's literally about what would happen if Occupy Wall Street was led by Bane, but these bluntly spelled out socioeconomic tensions cease to be important at the end.

Hardy is great as Bane, Hathaway is great as Catwoman, it just doesn't work together that much.

SHUT THE FUCK UP!

SHUT THE FUCK UP!

I'm sure you're fully justified, I just don't want to hear it


Posted by GoSpeedGo! on Jul-19-2012 23:41:

First half is still pure Nolan goodness.

It's just that now it's even more obvious how TDK is brilliant and how Joker was so important. Begins and Rises with all their characters seem so lame when compared to that, even though they should still be considered great movies.

Let me say up front that I don't think Nolan is a bad or thoroughly incompetent director, just a successfully pedestrian one. His Comic-Con fan base makes extravagant claims for each new film -- particularly since Nolan began producing his graphic-novel blockbusters with "Batman Begins" in 2005 -- but the movies are hobbled by thesis-statement screenplays that strain for significance and an ungainly directing style that seems incapable of, and uninterested in, illustrating more than one thing at a time: "Look at this. Now look at this. Now look at this. Now here's some dialogue to explain the movie's fictional rules. Now a character will tell you what he represents and what his goals are." And so on ... You won't experience the thrill of discovery while looking around in a Nolan frame. You'll see the one thing he wants you to see, but everything around it is dead space.

This post totally sums up my thoughts on Nolan. Enjoyable films, but not good.

Just saw it. For a blockbuster it was quite well done.

Kind of on the long side though. I wanted to fall asleep at times... right now, for instance.

Oh, right now? So you're posting on your phone, while in the movie? I hate people like you

I loved it. Great end to the trilogy.

end a trilogy right, but surely there will be more movies comming.


Posted by DOOMBOT on Jul-20-2012 15:02:

Not a bad movie but not a great one either. It was pretty much what I expected from Nolan. Bane was my favorite character and as expected, Batman was my least favorite. Bale plays a good Bruce Wayne but he just looks and sounds very silly in that costume. I thought the story was put together pretty well and it looked like Nolan took some ideas from past Batman comics, unless it was just coincidence.
