Re: The Dark Knight: Nolan and Baleís Batman 2
Very happy with the film. Maybe doesn't exactly live up to the hype but gets pretty close.
I liked it only slightly fractionatescimally less than Batman Begins. I just really like Batman screen time and he was a bit diluted in the mix and spending a lot of time putting out fires. But what a mix it was. Part of the appeal about Batman is him taking control of his demons and Joker acting as a true nemesis works to take that control away. I was so frustrated in the interrogation scene because, well, you canít scare Joker because he just doesnít care. Itís like trying to punch a ghost! If I had to think of an origin story that made sense for this joker then heís an ex CIA (master infiltrator) guy who lost everything. I think I could keep typing infinitely because Iím still watching in my head. Ooooh I just saw the scene where Batman says ďIím counting on it.Ē You all know the one. . .
So far other people I have heard from have like it much more than I did and I really really liked it.
