    Rises was a massive disapointment, but still a pretty effortless watch. Will buy.

    Begins > TDK >>> Rises.

    Well, at least you managed to identify the order they were released in. Big day for you!

    MotP > Michael Keaton Batman > TDK > Power Ranger the Movie > TDKR

    In terms of factual goodness and up-yours-legendhead-ness

    The cemetery scene in MotP, where the two main characters meet for the first time, is one of the best written scenes in anything. But I'm not really in love with the movie, and the scene where Bruce is spazzing over that necklace is pretty awful.

    Nobody but me understands how awesome Batman Begins is.

    Batman Returns isn't on Bloo's list, because it went so far over Bloo's head that he isn't even aware of its existence. He's just like "DURR CATWOMAN IS DUMB LOL"

    I barely even remember Mask of the Phantasm, myself. Saw it once when it first came out. It was kinda cool that they drew inspiration from the Reaper though. He's criminally underrated as a villain.

    Batman Returns is such a great demonstration of the yin/yang principle though. It's far more than a mere romantic adventure. I see it as an allegory of how the masculine force instinctively seeks a natural balance, despite how dark or chaotic its feminine opposite may be. When Bruce picks up the black cat in the end of the film? That's him accepting his inner bitch. And I don't mean "bitch" in the usual bro sense of "that dude looks like a bitch". I mean its literal definition of female wolf in heat. Or cat rather, in this case.

    Also, I haven't seen Return of the Joker. I bet lots of cool things happen in it.

    Part of the reason the few flaws in TDKR stand out as much as they do is because of how absolutely amazing and perfect TDK was in nearly every way. Making a sequel was a risk because it had so much to live up to.

    So triology wise TDK is the weakest and TDKR is the best
    Solo movie wise TDK is the best

    Batman: Begins starts a cycle that is closed on TDKR, TDKR is a really good finish to what started the triology.
    As a single movie TDK is the best overall, it really is on another level, there's just no comparison between the other two.

    Hey I love the film, there's just a few things that don't entirely work but I can forgive them.

    And this. The two before it in the Trilogy didn't have so much to complain about. It closes the Trilogy amazingly though.

    One thing I dislike is how there was no mention of the Joker to pay respect to Heath Ledger. I think that's bullshit, they left it out because it was convenient. I like to think that if he hadn't died they'd have had a scene where Bane just pulls his head off or something.

    I just read that fucking novel by Hulk about plot holes. Really great stuff he said. Basically everything I've said about "plot holes" he typed out in 12k word.

    Last night I watched Witness for the Prosecution. A court room mystery that was originally a stage show created by Agatha Christie. It was pretty amazing. It felt really nice actually watching a classic movie and being really satisfied about it.

    The other day I watched an old mini series starring Sidney Poitier called Separate but Equal. Apart from Poitier and Burt Lancaster's performance, it was pretty eh. The acting of the rest of the cast was the epitome of basic. However, there is this really great bit where a white guy who works for the NAACP tells a joke about why he wanted to work for the NAACP. It's almost good enough to justify watching the whole thing.

    Finally saw Dark Knight Rises... why the fuck did they make Bane sound like Yoda crossed with Sean Connery? Totally detracted from the film. And yes, I disliked the rest, that was just the icing on the hate filled cake.

    Because the original voice was too incomprehensible? I don't know. I like the voice because it is so silly.

  19. #15839
    Me too, the original really was almost impossible to understand at times.

    If anything throws me about the character it is wondering what dark magic they used to make Tom Hardy look so stocky.
