I found the last batman was laboured. A fresh start is welcome to this shallow entertainment franchise business.

Batman did not solve any crimes, nor did he do any detective work in the last Nolan Batman flick.

Dude's about to get shot in the head. The bad guy takes an inordinate amount of time to squeeze the trigger. Batman arrives and saves the day. A shitty movie makes a trillion dollars.

the Nolan batman flicks are internally inconsistent to a high degree. They are good for people who want to see shit blow up and feel fake-ass moral dilemmas.

I liked Dark Knight, but it did seem a bit exaggerated to fit into the blow shit up to the extreme ethos of post-2000 Hollywood movies. It also was a bit lengthy for a just blow shit up movie without enough of the rich character development which previously separated Batman from other comic book hero sagas. Batman was also more overtly a morality play and a self-reflective exercise. However, it looks like the Nolan Batman movies went more the direction of Batman III and Batman IV rather than Batman and Batman Returns. The last two seemed more like caricatures of the first, only Tim Burton can flirt with campy and serious in the same movie, and even he has had some epic failures at that. So the way that Batman III and Batman IV seemed like caricature versions of Tim Burton's first two Batman films, the Nolan Batmans almost seem like caricatures of a violent blockbuster action movie.

For my part, Memento is one of the single greatest mind fuck films of all time, period. Insomnia was decent, if for finally creating a good villain role for Robin Williams, and Stephen King's dry and lifeless dialogue is suited for Al Pacino. Unlike a lot of people, I really liked Inception, it wasn't Memento good, but I liked it, even went to the theater to see it, one of the few in the past ten years that has dragged me to the cinema. With the Batmans, well, I always felt the violence was a bit over the top for Batman, and the character development a little shallow, but all in all, they were beautiful produced with fantastic cinematography and balanced effects in this era of terrible CGI overkill. (remeber when 3-D almost ruined movies for the 1980s, that is how I feel about post-2000s Star Wars CGI blockbusters, its like if I wanted to play a video game I would have just done that instead of trying to watch a film)..

It is what it is. But Tim Burton's Batman and the first two Nolan flicks I think are worthy of discussion any time. Ben Affleck? Not so much. Besides, we could easily be talking about bad ass Jack Nicholson films, but demonrail keeps posting all the crap

I don't get the Ben Affleck hate at all. Not saying he's great or anything but he's been pretty decent in most everything I've seen him in. Casey's better though.

Haha. So you reckon he was more badass after the 70s?!? You're that guy who thinks the Dukes of Hazzard movie was better than the TV series, I know you are!

Ben Affleck is sort of like a more slacker and less sex appeal Matthew McConaughey because he comes across too much like David Schwimmer for anybody to take him too seriously. Like McConaughey, he's not particularly good at anything he's been in, but he didn't totally kill it either. He is the definition of medium then, so I agree, except that his advantage is he's been casted mostly in "Ben Affleck" kind of roles, of which Batman most certainly is not. Shit, even Mat Damon after all those Bourne Neverending Story repeats would surely make the more convincing Batman. Affleck doesn't have enough swag.

Dude, the movie is the only thing that managed to suck worse than that show!! I watched neither. I think that Jack Nicholson didn't perfect his characters until he developed that Bill Clinton swagger, he was a bit too Gene Wilder campy in his early roles I think. I just like that dickhead Jack better. Like Chinatown* (the one good pre-1980s film I think), The Shining*, Ironweed, Batman*, The Two Jakes, A Few Good Men*, Hoffa*, The Crossing Guard, The Pledge*, The Departed*, even Anger Management and About Schmidt!! The *starred films alone are all-time great roles, and he has several? Just mostly after 1980..

I'm amazed you're talking about him in stuff like A Few Good Good Men but haven't even mentioned One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest.

criterion has to get their hands on this things and reissue. yes, maybe it doesn't matter "for the story", but what i've seen so far is fucking gorgeous and deserves a lot more respect from its medium.

That sounds awful, I guess the UK version must be a different transfer, I think the aspect ratio was 1:85, and there certainly wasn't any blanking on the left and right edges.

Agreed, all the more accentuated by the juxtaposition his large frame and build. It was like, this big dude is whipped, but in a sweet way like your grandpa? Dude was funny as shit too. That whole show was fantastic, I really liked it, but only later in syndication.
