I really enjoy TMR. In fact, I think its a damn rewatchable movie. Not by any means as impactful as the original, but its still good. The Wachizaki Sibs made the mistake of answering the questions they'd provoked with the first film, which will inevitably get you nothing but a divisive audience.

I forgot to post what I think about BB:

I hate Batman the comic book character. But I really liked Batman Begins. Especially the first act. I didn't find the third act to be all that thrilling, but on the whole, I think I've watched it about 8 times.

It was obvious that Heath Ledger was ashamed of the source material based on his reply when they asked him if he had checked out any of the comics, but he seems to have still done a great job based on trailers.

It wasn't a big deal, I just thought it could have been done better.


It's a lot better than another lame vanilla fight. They did something similar in Spiderman 3. Not every fight has to be a slugfest, people will get bored.

Yeah I mean, with Batman inoculated against the fear gas, what else could Scarecrow possibly do to him? If they had fought, it would have lasted all of 3 seconds.

If he talked in his normal voice there's a chance, however small, that someone might recognize it and make the connection. It's not as good as the animated version, but since Bruce isn't a trained actor or anything you'd expect the voice to be a bit over the top in trying to sound intimidating.


I imagine the Batman Voice would have to be disguised somewhat, especially when talking to Gordon. It's not The Batman Voice that I find silly, it's Bale's Batman Voice that I find silly.

The growling was a bit much, but from the previews for TDK he seems to have toned it down a bit.

However, it always irked me that in the final season of Batman TAS Bruce ALWAYS used the Batman voice, even when he wasn't Batman.

My favorite scene in Batman Begins in the Flass interrogation in the rain -

"I swear to God"

"SWEAR TO ME!!!"
