Batman Begins

Gonna go see Batman Begins with Jennifer again in a few hours. Don't get me wrong, I love Star Wars to death, but Batman Begins is by far the best movie I've seen all year!

It was really difficult for me to go watch it initially because the last two Batman movies were so incredibily horrible! They completely turned me off of Batman!

I knew Batman Begins would be a a much better Batman movie than the rest, but I had know idea how great it actually would be. The story flows so naturally... there's never really a slow part of the movie... never a point where you're checking your watch and wondering how much longer it's gonna be.

If you haven't seen the movie... I highly recommend it!

All of the acting was superb! This movie has so many fantastic actors (though I won't mention Katie Holmes... they could have done without her!)

Christian Bale - Bruce Wayne / Batman

Michael Caine - Alfred

Gary Oldman - Detective Jim Gordon

Liam Neeson - Henri Ducard

Cillian Murphy - Dr. Jonathon Crane / Scarecrow

Morgan Freeman - Lucius Fox

Rutger Hauer - Richard Earle

Tom Wilkinson - Carmine Falcone

Mr Skinny - Of course I can post more Christian Bale (super HOT). I'll see if I have some more revealing pics! LOL!

Yep, lots of great stars... rumor has it that Sean Penn may play the Joker in the sequel, though it's not confirmed yet. Apparently he's uncomfortable in playing a role that Jack Nicholson once played, or so he says.

Sin City was awesome! It was really different from Batman Begins (much more violent... loved it!) I thought the plot line in Batman Begins flowed much better. Sin City definitely flowed a lot like a Tarantino movie (which I really like, it's just different.)

Drunkbh - I wanna go see the movie again right now. I wonder when it comes out on DVD. I need to get Josh to locate a good preliminary copy that may be floating around!

LGL - I know... it was REALLY hard to say, but it's true. I love Star Wars, even when most of the prequels sucked... but that's just because it's Star Wars!

Batman Begins is a great movie in its own right. I mean hell, I fucking HATED the last two Batman movies so much that I convinced myself that I would absolutely never see this new one or anything else relating to Batman! This movie renewed my faith in the Batman story!

Sin City was good. I just bought it a few days ago. It also reminded me of Tarantino.

Christian Bale is hot but I'm having a hard time getting over the eyes on Cillian Murphy.

Did you notive that Katie Holmes' nipples were rock hard during most of the scenes? Anyway, great movie, I hope Christopher Nolan directs the sequels.

This post only makes me want to go see it more. I just have to wait until all the stupid Dutch people are done packing the theaters.

Have you ever seen the movie Equilibrium??? It's got Christian Bale in it...and I reckoned that it's a VERY cool movie. Let me put it this way: Imagine Christian Bale playing in the Matrix instead of Keanu.

Frank said...

Drunkbh - You're absolutely right! His eyes are SO beautiful! Too bad Jen doesn't think so... she says he looks too much like a woman.

Ron - Unfortunately, I actually did notice that! Thanks for bringing up a horrible memory!

HighMaintenanceHussy - I know what you mean! I'm ready for this movie to be on DVD!

Elemmaciltur - I haven't seen that movie, but I'm gonna get it later on this week (if I got some extra money, that is!)
