The question about the bikes is a good one - wondered that myself. I suppose the magic of cinema is how they managed to get them through the building. I suppose they could be smuggled through the backdoor.

Again not that big an issue. It was a fun sequence in of itself.



Is it really that big a deal? We see that the LoS have infiltrated everywhere (Project Mayhem style!) so having a few bikes in the basement (or whatever) is pretty small beer by their standards.


Be a lot easier to smuggle a few dirt bikes into the basement of the Gotham Stock Exchange than it would be to "sneak" hundreds of oil drums onto those ferries (and presumably a hospital) in The Dark Knight. Just sayin', like. Like I did in my glowing-yet-curiously-not-uncritical reviews.

Fact is, movies like this seldom ever make any sense. If you're unwilling to suspend your disbelief, that is. Cos if you're prepared to swallow a guy dressed up as a bat (and precious few people ever noticing he's one of The Richest, Most Powerful and, therefore, one of The Most Famous Men In The World!) everything else really is just pointless nitpicking.

So there.



Hmm, in a panic emergency evacuations situation, would "searching below decks for oil drums" really be a priority ?
And remember, in Batman Begins we see a more "realistic" Bruce in a ski mask and Kevlar. It's pish. Dressing up as a Bat is a reasonable and not excessively implausible implementation of "weaponized fear" The fact that even the most hardened criminal, used to dealing with cops, rival gangs will have a terrified WTF? response to a dude in a Batsuit is kinda the point. Look also how Batman took down the SWAT team in Dark Knight. They ain't trained to deal wit' no Batman!

Hey Chris, it struck me that me and you are like Batman and Catwoman, heroically fighting against the baddies and haterz!

Batman has no limitations



Like this thread. But unlike some posters' patience...?

Sir, you try my patience.

Don't mind if I do. You must try mine sometime.

Personally I think Insomnia is his best.

Seems like a total hipster choice, but while I have a genuine fondness for his Batman flicks (especially The Dark Knight), Insomnia is the one Nolan joint I always go back to time and time again.

It contains Pacino's arguably last great performance and Robin Williams is creepy as sin.


Pacino's last great non-shouty performance, that's for sure. And Robin Williams is always creepy. Only here he was supposed to be for once!

(Insomnia's great. And the reason Hollywood was queuing up to star in Batman Begins, I think.)

How about you just read the rules and then thats that?


I've done so, but I was talking about the rules in the context of Renegade. He's just in the door, only a couple of posts, and he's already getting hassle from some Private Members Club types. I was doing him a favour by pointing out that it would be a good idea for a mod to recommend the rules. I wish someone had done that to me earlier.

I'd certainly welcome lots more on topic DKR discussion, but I got the impression you feel that the conversation's gone on on this thread long enough?


You are very good at this, I will grant you that.

I see they're still running TV adverts or DKR, and it's not exactly dropped out of the box office. No offence to anyone, but it seems very strange that the fact this thread is still going is considered odd.

Hey RGirvan is the thing of yours I quoted recently the review you were referring to, from early on in this thread, or is there another one I could look for elsewhere on the site?

Tell you what. Pop down to Ardrossan and try to smuggle one oil drum onto a ferry and see how far you get. Alternately, you could try doing the same at The Royal Infirmary, if that's handier for you. You could even kill two birds with the one stone by attempting these feats while dressed up as a bat and I'll watch out for you on the news tonight!

Is Adrossan in the midst of an urgent emergency evacuation? (maybe it should be, but that's not the question ) Even if below decks would usually be searched as a matter of course, surely you can understand them not having time to do so in DK?

I'm Batman, you're Catwoman! don't worry, I have no intention of giving you a pearl necklace

In fairness, when we see Batman in daytime in the Nolan movies, it's only at the point where he has to fight during the day, and when he's a folk hero (thereby making up for the supposedly ludicrousness of the batoutfit)

Personally I think Insomnia is his best.

Seems like a total hipster choice, but while I have a genuine fondness for his Batman flicks (especially The Dark Knight), Insomnia is the one Nolan joint I always go back to time and time again.

It contains Pacino's arguably last great performance and Robin Williams is creepy as sin.


Pacino's last great non-shouty performance, that's for sure. And Robin Williams is always creepy. Only here he was supposed to be for once!

(Insomnia's great. And the reason Hollywood was queuing up to star in Batman Begins, I think.)



Shouty Pacino isn't all-bad though! Personally I thought his turn in the peerless Angels in America was superb.


Indeed. I'm quite partial to a bit of quiet, brooding Pacino which suddenly gets all SHOUTY. Heat is a classic in this respect:

Cos's she's got a GREAT ASS! And you've got your head ALL THE WAY UP IT!


Hank Azaria's genuinely stunned response ("Jesus") is priceless - he had absolutely no idea Pacino was going to do this.

Glengarry Glen Ross is another one -

You stoopid focking cont... FOCK YOU, DAVE! FOCK YOU!

I do hope you're not confusing Pacino with Shatner The latter should really be credited with inventing grunge style quiet-LOUD-quiet-RANDOM LOUD via his acting style

The question about the bikes is a good one - wondered that myself. I suppose the magic of cinema is how they managed to get them through the building. I suppose they could be smuggled through the backdoor.

Again not that big an issue. It was a fun sequence in of itself.



Is it really that big a deal? We see that the LoS have infiltrated everywhere (Project Mayhem style!) so having a few bikes in the basement (or whatever) is pretty small beer by their standards.


Be a lot easier to smuggle a few dirt bikes into the basement of the Gotham Stock Exchange than it would be to "sneak" hundreds of oil drums onto those ferries (and presumably a hospital) in The Dark Knight. Just sayin', like. Like I did in my glowing-yet-curiously-not-uncritical reviews.

Fact is, movies like this seldom ever make any sense. If you're unwilling to suspend your disbelief, that is. Cos if you're prepared to swallow a guy dressed up as a bat (and precious few people ever noticing he's one of The Richest, Most Powerful and, therefore, one of The Most Famous Men In The World!) everything else really is just pointless nitpicking.

So there.



Hmm, in a panic emergency evacuations situation, would "searching below decks for oil drums" really be a priority ?

And remember, in Batman Begins we see a more "realistic" Bruce in a ski mask and Kevlar. It's pish. Dressing up as a Bat is a reasonable and not excessively implausible implementation of "weaponized fear" The fact that even the most hardened criminal, used to dealing with cops, rival gangs will have a terrified WTF? response to a dude in a Batsuit is kinda the point. Look also how Batman took down the SWAT team in Dark Knight. They ain't trained to deal wit' no Batman!


Tell you what. Pop down to Ardrossan and try to smuggle one oil drum onto a ferry and see how far you get. Alternately, you could try doing the same at The Royal Infirmary, if that's handier for you. You could even kill two birds with the one stone by attempting these feats while dressed up as a bat and I'll watch out for you on the news tonight!

Is Adrossan in the midst of an urgent emergency evacuation?


It will be when you get there - I've already grassed you up!

I've been to Ayrshire. I have connections/friends in low places. But then, I have eyes and ears everywhere...

I thought Chris was a fellow Weegie!


Now that would be telling. Scotland's about as specific as I'm prepared to get, location-wise. Once you've acquired an online stalker like wot I have (no, not him!) you learn to be a bit more discreet about what you divulge about yourself online.

I do hope you're not confusing Pacino with Shatner The latter should really be credited with inventing grunge style quiet-LOUD-quiet-RANDOM LOUD via his acting style


Have you heard The Shat's latest album? His, er, unique line reading of Bohemian Rhapsody has to be heard to be disbelieved:

Beelzebub. Has a devil? Put aside? For MEEEE...?

Jeez; I leave for a week or something and it all goes tits up!! What the duce has gone on?!

Anyway; back on topic...is that ok?!

Now that I've watched the film an unhealthy amount of time at the cinema (including an evening visit by myself, which is only the second time in my life I've done that) I am getting curious as to how this film will translate onto DVD.
Personally I think Batman Begins works better in the comfort of my living room; it just feels more personal a film. As the scale of this film is so epic I wonder if it won't translate as well...just my thought of the day.


You're gonna need a bigger TV


This was no post accident.
