This video is actually better than the movie itself. That's what the sets and cinamatography for a superhero movie should look like, only without the bad acting, stupid plot, ridiculous costumes and make-up.
I mean, rubber nipples and codpieces? Really, Joel Schumacher?

Heath Ledger plays an excellent psycho in weird clown make-up, but he's not playing The Joker.
It's far too long and just not comic book enough. If Batman and Joker wore ordinary clothes it would just be yet another gangster violent film, no style, no imagination. The gadgets weren't gadgety enough, the stunts weren't as over the top as I would expect, the sets were dull dull dull. It wasn't any fun. It just wasn't Batman
BUT very funny how Bruce Wayne puts on a gruff voice when he becomes Batman. But very little humour apart from that.

So I got back from this!
The first half of the movie was pretty good because the joker was busy stealing the show, but when they brought twoface in I really think it descended into Shittytown. Mabye not downtown Shittytown, just a suburb.
The joker's lines were all great, except for "What doesn't kill us makes us stranger" because Trevor Goodchild already said that like 10 years ago.
I definitely think the movie should have focused on the joker way, way more, since one, Ledger's performance was masterful, and two, everyone else is bluh. Every time the BAT VOICE was used I lol'd a little :<
I'd give it a B.

I think it's actually reasonable to expect that Ledger could be in the next film - if he was intended to appear in it as a cameo, then that would have been shot before his death, during the filming of TDK (to save it on one contract, and to help continuity). I think they did a similar thing with Scarecrow's cameo (you know, filming it during the previous film, in this case, Begins).
If Ledger has a cameo, it would be nice to see him briefly in Arkham Asylum, which would bring a bit of closure, as well as being a good introduction for The Riddler.
Well... I doubt it'll happen. The 'We're destined to do this forever' sort of hinted that they were planning for Ledger to be The Joker again. Bollocks. I want Ledger back *cries*

Bats worked out of a downtown pad when Boywonder went to college, Reminded me of that.
The lack of a batcave seems to be a good omen for 3. that and the almost $400 million
CASTING CALL FOR RIDDLER : Jude Law would totally nail it.

I think it would be pretty easy to fit the riddler into that world. He's not too far-fetched and erasing the memory of the jim carrey riddler would be great.
Also, I really like scarecrow. I was hoping that he'd have more to do in this one, but I was glad that they brought him back just the same.

down on wayne's basement. only
that's not wayne's basement

Also, I don't know why, but one of my favourite parts was the Joker clapping along with all the police officers when they make Gordon the commissioner. Fabulous!
I predict that if Nolan decides to do a third, Two-Face will come back and Gordon will be forced to admit that it was Dent that committed the murders thus clearing Batman's name. Then I guess I could either see Bane or the Riddler. Both could work; I could see the latter portrayed more in the terrorism vein, remaining hidden and sending clues, that kind of thing. It doesn't have to be that Jim Carrey garbage again. But a portrayal of Bane that isn't completely horrible would be nice to see too.
Why is the Scarecrow a wuss now? I expected more out of that cameo. OH WELL.

He was in a "basement" because Wayne Manor burnt down in the first movie, so why would he drive all the way there just to lurk in a cave? It was even mentioned in the movie by Alfred. JEANETTE, you are still a dope.
It's so depressing just how great The Joker was. It was almost so good that I could easily have seen the third movie introducing no new villains and just being him and Two-Face again. That line in his final speech about him and Batman being able to "do this forever" or whatever would have been the most exciting thing I had experienced since the joker card at the end of the first movie if I didn't already know that Heath Ledger was too dead to come back for another one. Gosh darn it.
PS Say what you will about Adam West; his movie was the only one where Batman was the best character (and not the WORST.)

By the way, did anyone else notice that the mayor was wearing eyeliner?
|Aug 2nd, 2008 09:57 PM|
he was all about lookin' sharp and gettin the ladies, and the plain white basement with bright lights just kinda fit that. to me, at least?
i'm no movie critic, though!
