Batman Begins

| 2 Comments

My good friend Mr. Schindler just let me borrow Batman Begins from him and I took the time to watch it this evening instead of patching, sanding, painting, cleaning, organizing, and stressing. All I can say is WOW.

Batman Begins is easily the best Batman movie ever. It is what Tim Burton was striving for, I really believe, in his first Batman with Michael Keaton. Don’t get me wrong, I liked the first one. The subsequent Hollywood offerings for the Dark Knight on the silver screen were… how shall I put it… utter crap, so I won’t comment as to their lack of merits. But Batman Begins was absolutely brilliant in its exploration of Batman’s beginnings, training, techno-arsenal, and psyche. About the only thing that I felt was lacking were the really tight fight scenes–too tight to really be able to see the action. But other than that, I have no complaints whatsoever.

My cat thought I was nuts, to be sure, but I was laughing, crying, and cheering throughout the movie.

Very, very, very well done.

Oh–and they finally did the Batmobile justice!! I LOVED it!

And now to sleep, perchance to dream… that… I’m Batman.

  1. I knew you’d like it. 🙂

    Awesome, awesome movie.

    I’ve always been a Spiderman guy, but I really, really liked this one a lot.

    I agree on the fight scenes, but after a few viewings, you do start to follow them a lot more closely.

  2. Heh. Yeah, seriously. Batman (as portrayed in Batman Begins) would kick the ever-loving crap out of the baby-faced SpiderMan (at least as portrayed in the SpiderMan movies).
