Nolan tried to emphasis "realism" and Bruce knowing he needed to disguise his voice was a solid choice in this regard.

FWIW, I never had any issues understanding Bale's Batman voice in any of the films. Bane on the other hand did occasionally become difficult to understand in the final film.

Still processing, but my overall take was mixed but leaning towards unfavorable:
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Impressions in no particular order -

Pace was a problem.
Why pin all the "Deaths in the desert" on Supes for using non-government bullets? Nonsensical. Supes doesn't use guns.
How did Clark figure out Bruce was Batman?
Really? "Martha" is what breaks the bat-rage?
Doomsday looked like crap. Also what's up with the electrical energy + heat vision/breath? (Although I did like creating him from a kryptonian regeneration pod)
Wonder Woman's introduction was cool - and I don't mind just dropping her in the story at this point.
Superman felt underpowered fighting Doomsday
Batman really won't listen to Clark as he approaches him, walking through all those traps?
Batman was rather violent stealing the kryptonite from Lex - I've pictured "bat-thefts" as more covert ops as opposed to full-scale assaults
Didn't like how quickly the world transitioned from "Did Superman just assassinate Congress?" to "let's build another monument"
The desert scene was trippy - cool to resolve it with Flash coming through the speed force (although the uniform wouldn't have suggested it was Flash anyways
JL video file introductions were cool, but took a bit too long
How is Diana onto Lex, and thus onto Bruce?
How does Martha go from Kansas to Metropolis/Gotham so damn quick?
Overall the Doomsday fight was just a hot mess - resorting to nukes so quick? (although blowing Supes up and then watching him regenerate like DKR was cool)
On the other hand, the Batman "martha rescue" scene was super cool - taking those shots to the back of the cowl? HOTDAMN
Clark and Lois relationship was pleasant to be dropped into - no need for exposition.
Supes seems to save people at a rather slow pace (hovering in the air a lot...)
Whole theatre jumped when the demon bat came out of Thomas' grave.
MARTHA IS MAGGIE FROM TWD!!!
Supes needs to get his head together. This whole lamenting loner crap is too drawn out.
Batffleck on the other hand was really well done and put together. Like Nolan's Alfred though more than Jeremy Irons
Too many subplots all swirling together made it hard to follow
Overall, it fell victim to Spiderman3 syndrome of trying to cram too much in too quickly.

I knew the opening weekend would be big. The real question is if the movie will have legs with all the negative reviews it's getting from critics.

Trying to see it today. Otherwise I'll wait till next weekend.

Just came back from watching the film. Not gonna sugarcoat it but I found it disappointing. Pacing was an issue. Honestly, it was flat out boring at certain parts. Too long. I felt like the movie didn't know whether it wanted to be a Batman film or a Supes film,, and it definitely shows. Overall, it felt pretty disjointed.

The things I liked were obviously the titular battle scene. Someone mentioned the dream sequences which were alright if not an obvious marketing excuse for more toys and needless action sequences. The shoehorning of Wonder Woman wasn't completely a disaster. To be truthful, Diana was probably the one aspect of the movie that I found intriguing and wanted to know more of. Diane Lane was superb as usual. What else? Ehh....I guess I'm a bit curious to see where DCU goes next considering what happened at the end of this movie but my hopes are officially not high.

Finished Daredevil Season 2. That was really good. Not perfect (but I won't complain here to keep this spoiler free), but very, very, very good.

So . . . having finished Daredevil Season 2, I fear I might be losing interest in the next phase of Arrow/Flash/Legends of Tomorrow. I guess I need to turn to Jessica Jones instead.

i could not get through 3 episodes of Jessica Jones before I totally lost interest.

The Flash is awesome with the occasional cross over with Green Arrow and now Supergirl. I'm still keeping up with it.

Any fans of Person of Interest? I must admit I had all but wrote off that show, but one of my best friends kept telling me to give it a shot. The show is amazing. First season feels like a fairly standard CBS police procedural with some slight Sci-Fi elements mixed in, but somehow still managed to be fun. Thing is the show quickly begins to transform itself and by the 3rd season no longer even feels like what it started out as. The Sci-Fi elements rach up as do conspiracies, action, etc. I'm mid way into the 3rd and love it. The final (5th) season starts soon and I urge everyone to give it a shot. Could be the best show on network TV.

Please no spoilers. biggrin.gif
