Did you like Batman Begins? It might just be Millers representation style.
Yeah, I loved Batman Begins, which is why this surprised me so much that it didn't blow me away...
Possibly the case of it being to over hyped and you were expecting to much.
Hmmm, maybe... but I'm usually fairly objective when it comes to stuff that's been hyped and take it as it is rather than how other people have related it to me (although having said that, when you don't see really a negative word said about a film anywhere, it does raise expectations quite a bit). This just simply didn't work for me for some reason...! Who knows, maybe I'll rent it on DVD when it comes out and it'll click with me and I'll "get it" then. Speaking of which, see the "what I like" thread!
I think it's because The Dark Knight was essentially 1 1/2 movies. My Batman nut friend said Nolan basically threw EVERYTHING he had into this movie because he may not be making a third. That said, now that we've seen the box office figures I'm sure there will be a lot of studio pressure to do one. But it's pretty much given that Dent and The Joker won't be returning, as TDK was basically the Harvey Dent character arc and it'd be impossible to top Heath's Joker, so why bother trying?
Differen't villains? The Riddler was baddass, Penguin?
Nolan has said that the Penguin, Catwoman and Robin would never appear in any of his Batman films... so it sort of limits the amount of characters he can add to the story now.
That is of course unless they do a version of Dark Knight Returns, which is set 10-15 years into the future. It would explain why there's no Joker (or why at the very least he's played by someone else). Personally I think they shouldn't touch the character again
Two-face and The Riddler are pretty bad-ass. You could go anywhere with them, especially dark.
People keep saying that they should use Two-Face in the next one... I think they wrapped his story up at the end of TDK. The movie was more about Harvey's rise to power and fall from grace, to bring him back as a full-on bad guy ruins what was built up in the previous movie
Oh my bad, i haven't seen it yet and was unaware of the villians.
I vote Mr Freeze.
ice to see you
On a different note- I watched Cloverfield last night. The start dragged on way too long, the good bits were too short and my wife said that handheld camera made her feel seasick! I thought it was interesting in that (thank god) it was different from a typical hollywood movie. But that's about all...
Perhaps I really like steadycam for too much
I love handycam movies. They pull you into the movie more.
Agreed 100%. I originally thought it'd be really cool to bring him back and see him running/waging war on the mob, but then I thought about it and realised there's nowhere left for the character to go.
From what I've read The Riddler and Black Mask could make alright villains, but I'm not a Batman nerd... I say bring back Bane.
I could only see the Riddler working if they did him as a faceless terrorist. Blowing shit up and leaving a trail of cryptic clues along the way... although that means using a secondary villian as a more physical threat. Which means Bane could work in that extent
Could show more of the detective side of Batman as well
OMG there's a Max Payne movie coming out! And it looks awesome. Hail Mark Wahlberg.
I, like LT wasnt blown away but then I haven't watched much batman, to be honest ive only seen Batman Forever and Batman & Robin...I enjoyed the performances alot.
Thought it was great with the but of...
It wasn't that it was too long (although it was), just that it had too many endings. They built up to the point where it could have ending 4-5 times in the last half hour (felt like the last half hour (or was that hour) of the final LotR).
Nice to see Cillian Murphy again.
Lets kick some iiiyyyyce!
