Sadly, most of my comic knowledge is reverse-engineered from the animated adaptations and encyclopedic synopses. I was woefully unaware that yet another Batverse had been created. Frank is dead set on making me obsolete. How "far" chronologically into the narrative does he go? Do you have any idea if this branch of movies will be sticking to that version exclusively?

Bss,

Early-ish in the film, Lucius Fox is giving Wayne the new bat-armor, telling him something to the effect of "it'll protect against everything but a cat".

There are no cats in this movie whatsoever, nor is cat mentioned visually or verbally anywhere else. Given the Nolan Bros. propensity to make the most out of every single moment, there's no way that's not a Catwoman reference for the next movie, which they're more or less already on board for. When you're running a $150 million dollar machine, there are no accidents in what makes it through the cutting room floor.

Yeah, nobody was straggling off to the bathroom in this crowd! :lol:

That was me who made the comment, and I remember now. Bruce wanted something that would protect against dogs. Fox said something like "Rottweilers or chihuahuas? It might protect against a cat."

There were moments in the theater when you could hear a pin drop. Everyone was absolutely riveted to the screen.

You are all a bunch of nerds.
:D
The movie fucking ruled and I like ZAS' review. I wholeheartedly agree. The audience gasped when Batman ran his batpod up the wall and turned around. I love it when we can still be wowed. Thumbs up.

The preview for Terminator looked sweet.

DAMN.

This was excellent.

As soon as Nestor Carbonell popped up on screen, I said, "BATMANUEL!!!" That was pretty hilarious.

seeing it via IMAX was worth it. having the screen be that huge was a noticeable bonus.

everything was fucking PERFECT, dude. as soon as it ended i wanted to watch it again. i was ready to go for a second helping but corggirl talked me out of it. i'll do it again soon though.

i cant wait to see it again. i cant wait to buy a wide screen tv so i can watch it on blu ray dvd. oh dear. oh dear.

i'd been saying for weeks now that even though the movie wasn't yet out, i was almost as excited about seeing it as i was about buying it on blu and watching it over and over and over and over . . .

2nd'd.

...and watching Ledger's performance reminded me of seeing Hannibal in 'Silence of the Lambs' in high school, which was the only other time I walked out of a movie shaken.

I wanna see it on IMax next time instead of the ghettoplex. To the girl behind me: yes, I know how creepy the Joker looks, and yes what ____ did was stupid. Thank you.

Brilliant movie though. Ledger's performance ruled, and everyone else's was good too. Damn.

I had forgotten Carbonell played Bat Manuel - nice, even if he was just a knock off of Die Fledermaus.

completely. awesome. man...it's been a long time since i've come out of the theater feeling like that. i saw it twice this weekend, the second time i attempted to see it on imax at easton but both shows sold out by the time i got there.

best joker. i bet he gets nominated for something.

until this thread, i didn't make the catwoman connection. i totally see it now. both times i was like "why didn't he say lions or tigers?" duh. :oops:

batman 3: catwoman and poison ivy?

also second time around we were discussing...shouldn't two face's ability to speak be just a little messed up? just a little?

the magic trick with the pencil is worth the price of admission.

I kinda never cared for Heath Ledger's movies, but it's true, he was amazing in this role, totally stole the show.

I can't figure out how he's still got that eyeball. Mr. Duffy says it was because he had his eyes closed, but if his eyelid burnt right off, ya'd think the eyeball would have went too.

hilarious. a man flying around in a bat suit raises no questions.

great, great movie. the joker stopping to put purell on his hands in the hospital was priceless.

I've had 26 years to come to terms with Batman. I've just been introduced to the idea of seeing through Harvey Dent's cheek.
