you should get on top of that, with the quickness..

where talking about a higher quality of film here.. not just some mindless Batman flicks..

Im sure after you view them, youll feel regretful of having delayed the pleasure for so long. Particularly after viewing The Dark Knight.

I know.
I actually liked Burton's Batmans a lot, but they lost me with Schumacher, and I never recovered.
I'll have to watch the Nolan ones...
even though I think he's generally overrated here, but i'll never tell anyone

If I were Jasi, I'd just find an open day and watch the whole trilogy at once. Can you imagine seeing the whole series for the first time in one day

Last movie I saw: Monkey Shines 7.5/10

Hilarious that it is filmed semi-serious considering the premise is a monkey carrying out the internal thoughts of a quadriplegic man.

I thought you said that you haven't seen a Batman movie since Burton, but now you say you saw Schumacher. YOU LIED TO ME!

For me the whole thing went down hill when he said he was Jesus. Like then the old lady just starts being angry, and shit. It was silly to me. Like I think it was interesting that he talked about Buddhist ideals being integrated into the Jesus mythos (and I personally believe that Jesus studied with Budhists during the lost years). But that HE was Jesus was silly to me. It seemed way outside the rest of the movie, where he was supposed to be just one man, on moment at a time.

Really cool ****ing movie right here. Never a dull moment watching this because you're always trying to figure out what happened or what's going on. Solid performances. Great story. I really respect the work of the Nolan Brothers.

9.0/10 -Would watch again (I dont do that often)

WARNING!!!! POST CONTAINS SPOILERS FOR THOSE WHO HAVE NOT SEEN IT!!

9.5/10: IMO, easily the best of the three. It was the longest but it didn't feel like it dragged on (to me), especially in comparison to The Dark Knight. In the second one it felt like the movie was more about The Joker than it was Batman. Here, they brought the focus back onto Batman with all the other characters being implemented around him. The struggles that he was going through in coming back to being Batman and such.

Anne Hathaway was a beast in this movie and was the stud of the movie. If I had one complaint it would be how little involvement she had for about 30 minutes or so in the beginning of the second-half of the movie. She did a great job. Bane was interesting. Hardy did a good job with him. I thought the political message that was being sent was a little weird and didn't quite get exactly what he was trying to say. I loved that they included an homage to the comics with that back-breaker scene- very well done. I thought the whole trying to make Bane's storyline Talia's kind of weird and it threw me off momentarily when that happened, but I just took it for what it was.

The ending was perfect to me. Some I saw complain that they shouldn't have shown Bruce/Selena at the end, but I liked it. I actually assumed they were just going to have Alfred nod and then cut out, but it was whatever. I really didn't go into the movie with any expectations other than that I thought it would be good. I wasn't going in with the intent of comparing it to the other two, but man, it definitely made me satisfied. Can't wait to see it again, haha.

Se7en - 9/10. This blew away any Law and Order or SVU episode I have ever seen, crime at another level. The criminal uses the 7 deadly sins to kill his victims, how sinister is that? The movie provided great depth with Gwyneth Paltrow as well as Morgan Freeman's character at the end of his career. Pitt did well, but damn his character was such a hot head, he pulled it off real well though. The ending throws a bit of a twist at you and leaves you shocked once it's over. Enjoy!


TDKR - 9/10. What an ending to the series this was. I was on the edge of my seat throughout. The acting performances were off the charts. Bale, Caine, Hathaway, Hardy, Gordon-Levitt were stellar. I especially loved how they incorporated Gordon-Levitt's character into the movie and gave it a lot of importance. The ending may not be what you expected, but I left the theater very satisfied with what I saw. Will see again, very soon.

Dark Shadows 2012

7.5/10

Don't let the average ratings and negative reviews scare you off. I really enjoyed it. Well done movie, and well worth seeing.

Oh, and Michelle Pfeiffer is still gorgeous @ 54.

No, I didn't see them. I heard crappy opinions from all my friends who I trust and I chose to watch something else. I'd never lie to you.

Just watched Drive.


I liked it.
Towards the end it gets too much of a "I have to kill them all before they kill all my friends" type of movie, but it's still a very well acted and directed movie.
7.5/10
