Do you mean Memento? IMO still, by far, Nolan's best film.

Proving, Batspider, fairly conclusively that one can like one Nolan film and not like another. So let's be a little less rude to the fans, yes?




Yes, Memento, sorry. The Momentum sounds like a DTV Speed rip-off

The Prestige looks interesting, but I fear no movie can live up to its "Batman v Wolverine, refereed by David Bowie" hype


Now there's a film I would like to see. I can just imagine The Thin White Duke solemnly intoning:

I don't think I like this film. I'm to have to make some Ch-ch-ch-changes...!

Technically wahhabist Islam is a comparatively recent phenomena, so there! Whereas the Glorious Glasgow Rangers are obviously associated with classic enlightened values of religious and political freedom for all. Talking of the Taliban, I can't be the only disappointed that Frank Miller never got to use Batman in his mooted "Holy Terror", Batman-v-the-Taliban book! People who complain about Bats being right-wing would surely change their tune if they saw him beating up genuine terrorists!

I liked Jennifer Connelly in Labyrinth! Cant' believe she was only 16 (or possibly even younger?) when she made it. The movie would have been better if she'd been more torn between the exciting adult world (exemplified by Bowie) and childhood. You can't do that kind of subtext when the lead is less than 16 though without it being creepy as hell.

Come on, Bowie's Pilot is a great world-weary politician! Remember when he talks about not caring if change comes from lov e or violence, and how Jesus "knows what must happen"? Bowie gives it some great cynical pragmatism, and even deigned to have a Caesar-cut hairstyle.

What's clap acting? Never seen Into the Night, might look it up. I always meant to see the famously terrible Million Dollar Hotel as it did, all else being said, still boast Bono and Mel Gibson in the same movie! ("Because you demanded it....together at last!")

You'll recall that there's a reason why Cellic board of directors only offered the European Cup Winning (and non-RC) Jock Stein a job on the club pools. Scotland used to be messed up for everyone. But we are the only european country that never shed Jewish blood, which dare one say outweighs rather the singing of non-PC songs at fitba games.

Anyway, don't want to drag this thread off-topic.

Highly recommended. John Landis caper movie with a shockingly young Jeff Goldblum and a never-lovelier Michelle Pfeiffer. Bowie plays a sleazy cockney hitman and gets into a fight with Carl Perkins! Plus there's hardly a seventies/eighties director who doesn't cameo in it - Cronenberg, Mazursky, Landis himself as a heavy. Bought it again recently on Region One for a couple of quid.

Hey, if you think Frank Miller's recent work is a bit radio rental, have you heard of Neal "greatest ever Batman artist" Adams' truly brain-breaking Batman: Odyssey?

Now here's a Batman story with "plot holes" !

Are you a fan of (famous Glasweigan!) Grant Morrison's take on Batman? I'd maintain that he's written the greatest Batman stories of my lifetime, the "Batman R.I.P" arc especially. He entitled one of his Joker-featuring chapters "The Thin White Duke of Death", which is superb.

Come on, what about Batman Returns? Never been a slash-fiction fan (don't the pages get stuck together ?) but the prospect of Michelle Pfeiffer Catwoman and Ann Hathaway Catwoman hooking up is an exciting one!

Talking of the Taliban, I can't be the only disappointed that Frank Miller never got to use Batman in his mooted "Holy Terror", Batman-v-the-Taliban book! People who complain about Bats being right-wing would surely change their tune if they saw him beating up genuine terrorists!


I'd rather see Frank Miller beating up genuine terrorists.


You'll recall that there's a reason why Cellic board of directors only offered the European Cup Winning (and non-RC) Jock Stein a job on the club pools. Scotland used to be messed up for everyone. But we are the only european country that never shed Jewish blood, which dare one say outweighs rather the singing of non-PC songs at fitba games.

Anyway, don't want to drag this thread off-topic.

"Are you dense? Are you retarded? I'm the goddamn Frank Miller, who do you think I am?!"



Victor Meldrew?




Where ?

Am fond of old and grumpy Batman myself! One reason Dark Knight Returns was so great.




And I'd agree with the poster who said, early on in this thread, that there's no need for a genuine Dark Knight Returns live action movie adaptation, as Nolan's incorporated its best and most relevant bits into Dark Knight Rises.

Do you mean Memento? IMO still, by far, Nolan's best film.

Proving, Batspider, fairly conclusively that one can like one Nolan film and not like another. So let's be a little less rude to the fans, yes?




Yes, Memento, sorry. The Momentum sounds like a DTV Speed rip-off

The Prestige looks interesting, but I fear no movie can live up to its "Batman v Wolverine, refereed by David Bowie" hype


Now there's a film I would like to see. I can just imagine The Thin White Duke solemnly intoning:

I don't think I like this film. I'm to have to make some Ch-ch-ch-changes...!




He's not afraid of a brave performance! Those ballcrushingly tight trousers in Labyrinth scarred/excited an entire generation!


That's nothing compared to what they did to his balls. (The scariest thing about Labyrinth was Bowie's mullet. And that giant Spike Milligan lookalike. And Jennifer Connolly's scowly face like a torn oot fireplace...)


quote:

Personally, I quite like his turn in Last Temptation of Christ too.


"So, you're The King of The Jews, are you? Do one of your holy tricks..." Pure comedy gold.


quote:

Shame he never got to play a Batman villain


Ah, but which one? His Poison Ivy couldn't be camper than his Pontius Pilate! I believe it was Oshima who said that David Bowie was the cinema's greatest exponent of what is known as "clap acting..."

(Bowie's best ever screen performance was in Into The Night, BTW. Even he thought so.)





And come on, does Pilot not say to Jesus, fairly rational and sceptical, "can you do a trick, now, for me"? The bit where Jesus says no but does tell him what he says on the streets, and the whole analogy of the statute is brilliant. Last Temptation is full of moments like that. Surprised it doesn't get more critical acclaim (honourably exception to Kevin Smith, who cited it as one of this favourite movies) . The bit where Jesus appears to John the Baptist and all the sound leeches out when John realises Jesus is who the prophets spoke of is superb.

Come on Glasgow's big like Gotham! Lots of crime though. Hope nobody ever sends all our polis down the sewer!



I think Rangers beat them to it - BA-DOOM-Tschhhhhhhh...!



Harrumph. I maintain that Bruce Wayne, with his Scottish ancestry, would be a fan of the Glorious Glasgow Rangers!



He's not right-wing enough.



Anyway, I thought Nolan's Batmovies are supposed to be to the right of Dick "the Penguin" Cheney?



Well, like Bush, Rumsfeld, Cheney and co, The Dark Knight Trilogy goes out of its way to demonstrate just how counter-productive torture is. But it's more ambivalent about "extraordinary rendition" - OK when The Batman does it (though it gets Lao killed - whoops!), not-OK when the CIA does it.

In fairness, the objection to CIA is that they take people to places where torture is allowed, or at least easier to get away with. Batman, instead, hands Lau back to the police where he's allowed to stand trial under the rule of law.

What's clap acting?


It's an old Spitting Image joke. Oshima directed Bowie in Melly Chlistmas, Mr Lawrence...

(I said joke!)


quote:

Never seen Into the Night, might look it up.


Highly recommended. John Landis caper movie with a shockingly young Jeff Goldblum and a never-lovelier Michelle Pfeiffer.



Come on, what about Batman Returns? Never been a slash-fiction fan (don't the pages get stuck together ?) but the prospect of Michelle Pfeiffer Catwoman and Ann Hathaway Catwoman hooking up is an exciting one!


She doesn't get her kit off in Batman Returns.

Ah, fair point ! Although it still cracks me up that Burton managed to get the line "just the pussy I've been looking for" into what is ostensibly a kids' film!

Are you a fan of (famous Glasweigan!) Grant Morrison's take on Batman? I'd maintain that he's written the greatest Batman stories of my lifetime, the "Batman R.I.P" arc especially. He entitled one of his Joker-featuring chapters "The Thin White Duke of Death", which is superb.


The only Morrison Batman I've read is Arkham Asylum - very pretty to look at, not very good/pretentious, truth be told. I've still got a mint first edition in hardback if anyone wants to make me any outrageous offers...

PS: I'm not "a fan," BTW. I'm an enthusiast...
