[color:blue] My only point is that there seems to be a thought process in Hollywood per se that you either have action, CG OR a thought out script.</font color=blue><br><br>Gotcha... I see you have the new ring too <br><br>
It was "eh." Gotham was a joke. At least Burton had the vision to make the city ITSELF a character. This one could've taken place in Milwaukee and it wouldn't have made a difference. Scarecrow? Another joke. Hire an actor that is less sissy and that doesn't act/look like his balls just dropped. I was more worried that he'd give Gotham a makeover than poison the good people with crazy gas.<br><br>A microwave that vaporizes water? And what about the water in our bodies? Oops. Gary Oldman sleepwalked through it. Uh, Gary, the camera's rolling...you can act now.<br><br>The cute district attorney (She really looks like a district attorney, huh? Like, totally awesome!) has to take the subway home and gets attacked by thugs. Didn't see that one coming. Luckily, when her car is shown, it's a junker. So she's in our hearts! XXXOOO<br><br>And fix the Batmask...what's with the egghead? Rutger Hauer.... wow, two movies in one year!<br><br>Wanna make a cool Batman movie? Film it like Sin City. Get to it.<br><br>
This one had potential. I feel part 2 will be a lot stronger. Give us villains to care about. "Look, I found a potato sack... NOW I'M SCARECROW....IN AN ARMANI SUIT... FOR NO REASON!!!!!" Uh... no.<br><br>
I'll grant you that the Scarecrow bit was weak. And I'll even say I thought the whole 'Bruce Wayne goes to the Orient to learn Kung Fu' thing was lame as hell. <br><br>But, once it got going, and all of the story came together, plus the different way in which they presented it...I was sold. <br><br>The whole movie ran as fast as possible away from the campy/Tim Burton/Adam West goofiness and went more with the tone of the Batman animated series. <br><br>This will be like The Hulk was. Some people loved it, myself included, and others thought it was boring garbage. No in-betweens. <br><br>

'Some' people thought it was 'boring garbage'? I haven't met one yet...<br><br>I've long been a huge fan of the Frank Miller Batman comic books, and this to me was the closest we were going to get...Burton's movie was good for the time in which it was released, but BB blows that one away, IMO...<br><br>I thought Oldman was fine- Gordon was supposed to be a flustered, nervous mess of a good cop who didn't know what to make of his new-found ally. The Scarecrow character is pretty close too- the only difference was that Jonathan Crane was a college professor in the comic world, as opposed to having him work at Arkum Asylum for the movie. <br><br>To me it worked, although now I want to see more of this guy...I also can't wait to see what they do with the Joker...<br><br><br>Back in Black...
Oh yeah..I know people who walked out of the Hulk and asked for their money back. <br><br>They wanted a rock 'em sock 'em action movie, not a dramatic portrait of the Hulk's internal struggles. <br><br>

Oh, I thought you were referring to Batman- the Hulk was another story...<br><br>That's the problem with some of these comic-book movies- some of the origins of these characters are just too hokey to pull off on film. Writers and directors then feel they have to embellish the real backstory and that's when we get Nick Nolte turning into some sort of twig/leaf monster & taking over the Hulk's body...<br><br>ugh.<br><br><br>Back in Black...
