    You guessed it!

    What are all these Batman/Catwoman references...

    Haha no, seriously - I loved it, I'm going to watch the film again tomorrow night. Hope everyone got to see it in IMAX or at least VMAX. I'm very glad Christopher Nolan chooses not to use 3D. It's so overdone, IMHO.

    dark knight rises was fantastic.

    i loved the twist at the end.

    sorta knew what was becoming of J. G. Levitt - nonetheless, he played the role exceptionally well. so underrated as an actor!

    and Anne Hathaway. mreow!! she can have my pearl necklaces anyday.

    talking fillums - went to see the Royal Affair the other night.

    Very classy film, well directed, scripted, acted and costumed. I do like a film that goes for a decent amount of time and at around 2 hours 15 minutes this one never seems too long.

    Although dressed up (small word play) as a period romance - it is a meaty examination of the Enlightenment and the spread of those ideas thorough Europe in the late 1700s and gives an insight into why some of the ideas still struggle to be translated to policy, laws and actions.

    Aside from the humping scenes and a bit of the unverifiable domestic dialogue etc the film seems to be remarkably historically accurate.

    Those who have even a passing interest in the development of clothes (mens in particular) will also have much to occupy their eyes if the sex, romance, intrigue, politics, blood and intellectual shenanigans are too tame.

    Look, they have a great store and have a wonderful history in Melbourne as a menswear hub. There is nothing else like it that I know of in Melbourne with their range of brands. In my opinion they are from an different generation of menswear and do not feel they have to give you a certain retail experience, my guess is that they feel the quality of the product is enough. My kind of retail is sitting down with a client and getting to know them, so you can understand what they need. When selling products of this price, I like a personal feel, especially with the Internet undercutting prices in all brick and mortar stores. I think this experience should not be expected everywhere you go. You may not agree.

    The owner is a lovely chap and has a great eye.

    We are calling out for a decent menswear store here...something like Boggi Milano, my favorite store. Something in the style of Bunello, at a price where you don't have to remortgage your house for a pair of flannel trousers....

    I didn't know they sell Brunello Cucinelli stuff here in Australia! $1600 for a jacket though.

    What colours can we expect, you might have already told us.

    Looking forward to see them.

    Saw it on Saturday at Gold Class. Here are the thoughts that I posed over on whingepool shortly after (a la The Simpsons Comic Book guy):

    Any new Batman film will have to answer one question...

    Who will be the new Batman?

    Having recently returned from a very pleasant 4 week holiday in England and Italy, I wholeheartedly agree with you Christian. I purchased a number of items from Boggi, when I was in Milan. Massimo Dutti - the upmarket sibling of Zara - is another retailer I like, which I wish existed here. I don't want to spend $200 on a t-shirt or $500 on a jumper!

    I purchased a number of items from Massimo Dutti at full price - I would be paying double in Melbourne. :cloud:

    Don't know how familiar you are with the Batman mythos, but an animated version of Frank Miller's legendary Dark Knight Returns is due for release later this year. :slayer:

    For those who don't know what I'm on about, the Dark Knight Returns was the DC Mini-series that triggered the shift back to a darker, more edgy Batman.

    Worth checking out...
