When talking about Gotham knights I predict much like the last 3 Batman games (Arkham city, Arkham Origins, and Arkham knight)
Joker is the main villain he is controlling the court of owls and the final boss battles is a jokerized Batman
I hope to god I am wrong but everything about this screams they are lying Batman is alive and Joker is the main villain
If I am wrong I will be so happy if I am right I will have been fooled for the fourth flipping time in a row
Pattinson's Bruce Wayne reminds me of a 1970s era Joe Dallesandro. Probably the 1970's haircut he sports here. John Turturro is, as usual, a delight, and Jeffrey Wright is a superb Gordon. I think he looks at least 15, maybe even 20 years younger in this film than he did in NO TIME TO DIE.
I prefer this incarnation of Batman to THE DARK KNIGHT.
Glad you enjoyed it! So far it’s tied with Batman Returns for being my favorite of the live action Bat-Flicks. You’d also be surprised at the amount of audiences who prefer Pattinson to Bale, I’m certainly one of them!
Was sceptical of his casting, but I did enjoy his performance!
Weirdly, that's an uncommon opinion. Personally, while I liked the first two films in Nolan's Batman trilogy, I never warmed to Christian Bale as Wayne/Batman. I think Pattinson's take on the role is much more interesting.
For me, this sort of stuff makes The Batman stand out from Nolan's films (I know he's a well regarded filmmaker, but these aspects of his films - especially his sound design - don't immerse me in his films the same way, and in fact often takes me out of his movies). It's a more evocative film, and the fact that it's fundamentally a rather personal film about Batman makes it work. Mask of The Phantasm will always be my favourite Batman film but The Batman does a cracking job.
Yeah, Nolan has a tendency to let his ideas run away with him, both stylistically and script wise. Even TDK is actually a bit weird when you think about it. I always assumed the whole point of that movie (and I guess the trilogy) was that despite Gotham's tendency towards corruption and crime, the people would essentially come together and do the right thing when needed (this is what I guess the scene with the bombs on the boats was going for). That's all fine, but I found it strange that Batman's decision to take the blame for Dent's crimes was depicted in the way it was. He essentially decided it's better to lie and pit himself as some sort of surrogate enemy (a very questionable idea anyway) because he doesn't think the city will be able to handle Dent's downfall... I mean, it's a weird thing for a character so invested in Gotham's inner humanity to do, and it's not even as though this is questioned in the next film (the city actually seems to have less crime at the beginning of TDKR, and Batman is only needed when Bane shows up).
I prefer what The Batman was going for in that sense.
There must be an adventure film in Batman somewhere, where he gets to do cool things and sock baddies.
My main gripe with the first one is that I wish they had just not used any of the Waynes at all. It was great when it was completely independent of that stuff, and it was muddied when they introduced tiny Bruce, and making some of the plot revolve around Thomas.
It could be a complete train wreck just as easily as it might be a masterpiece. I'm excited to see what they can accomplish with something so unique, and the cast amassed so far is very impressive. I hope it rocks.
The '66 Batman film answers to that description, along with the first season of the TV show. They look great on Blu-ray too.
I actually thought if there's one thing that Corridor Crew video where they inserted Adam West into the The Batman trailer did show, it's that the 60s Batmobile still looks badass and they should just bring that back and not worry about explaining it, like Bond did with the DB5.
Agreed. 89 is still the best Batmobile for me though.
I watched someone watch it on a plane a couple weeks ago, and it did look rather monotonous.
Considering an aspect of the driver, watching it without hearing it may have been quite appropriate. Might it have helped you appreciate the film more from the Baby Driver's perspective ?
One of the best animated series ever made in my opinion. The artwork, the writing, voice acting - all of it's superb. As I've said before I don't think any of the live action films ever got close to how good Mask of The Phantasm was.
I mean, that show was a good few years old when I watched it as a kid and I know people even younger than me who grew up watching it.
Since then, I've rewatched both Burton films and the first two Nolan films and I don't think it's better than any of them (as good as it is).
