    Batman Begins: See. This. Movie.

    Just got back from an employee screening of Batman Begins at the movie theater where I work. It is, hands down, Bhe Best superhero movie, prequel, and movie starring Katie Holmes to ever. Be. Produced. There were exactly zero times during the entire thing where the dialogue violated my cliche-o-meter or my cheesiness threshold, and the love story, unlike say Spiderman, is tertiary to actual character development, plot, and cinematic style. I cannot say enough good things about this movie.

    I lied. Okay, well, actually I'm just tired. The point it this: Batman Begins is an incredible film. I would highly, highly recommend it.

    That is all.

    I'm glad it's good, can't wait to go see this...

    My mate was worried that it wouldn't be any good as you already know the story and that he's never going to be in any real danger (lives for next films).

    He thought it would be full of :cheesy: too...

    It's getting rave reviews all around. Even Ebert gave it 5 stars which is rare for him when it comes to this kind of movie. I want to see it... But Isolde won't come with me. Now I need a friend... :(

    Tell her Batman does a hooker, while another hooker looks on.

    I so want to see this movie. The best superhero movie, imo, is still the original Batman, but hopefully, this one will be better or atleast on the same level.

    Doom 2 rocks!

    Anyway, I've also heard that this Batman has almost no humor in it, which imo, fits the Batman mythos. His is not a funny life, just a dark and grim one. Some critics say this will hurt the movie's chances at the box office, but I think true batman fans will love it.

    nothings better than a tragic hero. I always thought that they had overdone humor in the previous batman flicks. It just made them a bit too hyperrealistic to take the batman character too seriously.


    I hadnt heard of Christian bale before, but I just saw the machinist, and I think he could do batman pretty well.

    I would totally go and see this movie. Christian Bale is damn hot! I didn't want to go and see it until I found out that he was in it.

    And he's shirtless in this movie too. Now Anakananananana has his friend to go with, I'm sure.

    I saw Batman this afternoon and I was quite impressed. It didn't blow me away, but then again it was nowhere near the Schumacher camp crap that almost killed the series. A lot darker, good pacing, good origin story and just a more realistic portrayal.

    To be honest, I'm the type that would love to see a rated-R Batman murder mystery that still uses Batman as a superhero (see The Long Halloween, for anyone who reads comics), but I'm well aware that Hollywood simply won't make that. That being said, I definitely liked Batman Begins and more importantly, I like the tone that it sets for the future Batman movies. They didn't feel the need to tie up all the lose ends that this movie created and treated it like a continuing story instead of coming up with a lame "everything's perfect" ending. I like that solution a LOT better.

    Bale said much of the same thing that you wanted. An R-rated Batman flick, with some details on Batman's sexual life. Here's the quote.

    Batman Begins star Christian Bale said that when/if a sequel is made, Warner Bros. should release both a PG-13 and an R version of the film which would include sex scenes.

    "I do think there is a lot of room for, like, an R-rated Batman," he told World Entertainment News Network. "It's a little bit tricky to broach the sex aspect of the story when you want kids to come see this as well. I mean, we still like for a 12-year-old to come see it and enjoy it. I think it would be very interesting, myself, to do maybe one version, which can be both PG-13 and R - two different cuts of it. The (Batman) graphic novel certainly dove into his private life because it's fascinating. He's got to do something sexual at some point. I think it could be an interesting storyline to take somewhere."
