Re: Star Wars Universe Discussion Thread

I have a sweet spot for AOTC that can be summed up in the scene when Anakin and Padme enter the arena: the dialogues are stupid, the visuals are fake, yet the music starts, and the scale of the visual is so big that in the end I still enjoy every time I watch that sequence. Nailed it. That is the e...

Re: Star Wars Universe Discussion Thread

Attack of the Clones is probably my favorite of the prequel trilogy. It has the most to work with thematically, great character opportunities, and the plot structure works very well. Unfortunately the execution is mostly awful.

Re: The Batman (2021)

It's same old same old because there is much much more to Batman than Joker, Catwoman, Two-Face, and the Long fucking Halloween. It's like the studio has completely given up after Nolan and decided to box themselves in. Or maybe it's just that Reeves himself has no clue about Batman and where to tak...

Re: The Batman (2021)

Ain't gonna see no unadapted villains showin up on the big screen any time soon if this is the direction the films are going in. Seems like Reeves is more interested in "same old same old" than "new and different".

Re: The Batman (2021)

Yay for Turturro but lol at more fucking Falcone.

I guess the reports of a Long Halloween adaptation were true.

Way to break new ground Reeves.

Re: The Batman (2021)

I'm guessing that the audience isn't supposed to get a great sense of many of them, and the characters are mostly only there to serve the plot. Although with characters like Riddler and Penguin there's not much sense to get in the first place in my view. Could have done without Alfred but let's see ...

Re: The Batman (2021)

Leaving Alfred out is impossible, imo. Not an option. They'd be ignoring a huge part of what makes Batman Batman. That's like taking Lois Lane out of a Superman film. It's not that much different than leaving out Robin in my view. He too is a huge part of what makes Batman Batman. Definitely not im...

Was Pierce Brosnan never confirmed as Alfred? I could've sworn he was cast.
I think Brosnan as Alfred was only rumored and not confirmed.

I'm hoping that maybe they leave Alfred out this time around.

Re: The Batman (2021)

Batman Forever succeeds as a memorable summer blockbuster in spite of the questionable acting. It clicks in all the ways Batman & Robin doesn't. The score is great and the action is well done. One thing about the Schumacher films is that they get closer to the heart of what Batman is all about, an ...
