What are your thoughts on the last three Batman flicks, Dannyboy?

I'm still not very clear on this issue.

I'd be interested to know if there are any films Dannybohy likes. He spends so long talking about all of the ones he hates that he seems to have forgotten that this is primarily a forum for people who like movies.

He doesnt like the Nolan Bat flicks but thinks the Burton ones are '' unsurpassed ''.You know, the ones with a midget playing Batman, poodles grabbing batarangs in mid air, and armies of rocket firing penguins marching down Gotham square with not a soul in sight.

If Spectator thought the first film was boring and he didn't like it, then watched the second and came to the same conclusion, why even bother watching the third one? The point he's making is pretty clear to be honest.


No! its a fuckin stupid point!. I watched Begins, it was ok, not bad, I watched TDK purely because of the Joker hype! it was slightly better!. I watched TDKR, it was a repeat of TDK with extra bollocks and nap time!. Hence I watched the trilogy! and with the OP
Taken as a trilogy its " Meh, nice Batmobile" "Why so serious!?" "What the fuck....ZZZzzzz".. fair comment

The first series of BlackAdder was shite! the second was perfection! as was the Third and Fourth!


And all that would be super if my point was aimed at you. It wasn't, so no need for the aggressive swearing. We get the fact that YOU don't like the trilogy but I wasn't talking to or about you. Or Powka for that matter. Nice that both of you can speak for Spectator, though, sure he appreciates that.

I thought the hype surrounding the first Burton Batman was HUGE. I didn't think much of the move at the time, to be honest. I liked it more in later life, but everytime I see this thread surface, I think of Batman... so that must the most overhyped film I've ever seen.

Michael Keaton is only about two inches shorter than Bale. Less use of the "midget" shit, please.

Just admit it, all this resentment towards Nolan is your way of suppressing and dealing with your true feelings for him and his films. You fucking love him don't ya. Otherwise you wouldn't be bringing him up in nearly every conversation you post here. You're like the little kid in school who pretends to dislike a girl by teasing her and calling her names but deep down you have a crush on her.

It's ok dude we can get you through this with a little help and a shoulder to cry on.

That depends on the tone used. Most of the people who like the movies don't give people like you shit for not liking them. It's because you're being patronising and insist that we've all been "fooled" into liking the movie, and actually just insulting anyone who says they like them without any provocation.

And that's not mentioning writing off people's points in defense as just fanboy rambling instead of engaging in an actual discussion.

I don't really love Batman Begins and The Dark Knight Rises (and controversially The Prestige) and I'm still finding this guy obnoxious.

Any Tarantino film since Kill Bill vol. 2, even the pretend quirkiness of part. 1 has started to irk me (+Pulp Fiction, which appeal i never understood)
But i guess the most overhyped for me has to be Blade Runner. Major Sir Ridley fan but can't stand the film. Its a visual masterpiece certainly but
thats about it for me. It never engages me in anyway and mostly i find it tedious. No matter what cut i see.
I couldn't care less whether Deckard is a Replicant or not.

The story is nothing special and too similar to "Dances with Wolves" and "Pocahontas", the bad guy is two-dimensional, the messages are spoon-fed and the action bored me. It looked good though. And Sam Worthington is handsome.

All that Twilight bollocks. The missus loves it, she's read the books and now the shite films grace my collection and with the exception of one, all were released at the cinema around her birthday, so I ended up spending 20 on bollocks. Thank God they are done with.

I'm not sure in fact where it stands on the hyped up scale, I just needed somewhere to get the built up angst off my chest.

The only Twilight movie I have seen is Breaking Dawn: Part 1. It was pretty bad. Being pregnant it was horrific to watch the vampire baby eating its way out of Bella's womb and the birth scene.

The Matrix. ( It was overhyped by Empire anyway ).

The Raid. A passable chop socky action flick but nowhere near worth the overhype it was given.

Could I just bring to the discussion that really, the word "hype" is over publicity or exaggeration of something, in this case, a film. It could therefore be argued that every popular film of the past 50 years has been over hyped in order to sell it.
What would be interesting would be to read why people felt robbed of their hard earned dosh paying to see it, as opposed to people just saying " it was shit".
Example: I disliked Haywire, it was sold as an all out action film whereas in fact, it had too few action sequences and too many irrelevant talkie scenes.
And it was also shit.

I don't really let films get over hyped for me. But I do get pleasantly surprised when somebody says something is a dud, and I go in with low expecations and come out feeling happy.
