Yeah, the grand finale was a bit silly (in comparison to the rest of the movie) but other than that, an utterly enjoyable movie.


The one weak link in the movie - Katie Holmes. Oh, she acted well enough, and was cute, and etc. But every time I looked at her, all I could see was that damn picture of her face that looked like she had herpes, and Tom Cruise jumping around like a fairy.

Damn you Cruise... damn you.

I really liked it though, and you should go see it. Let me know what you think.

I imagine Batman has a bespoke batsuit at least then?

It was amusing, to hear him and Alfred discussing how they were going to assemble the pointy ears and mask without anyone realizing what they were doing. They outsourced to Taiwan and China for parts, and had to order in bulk lots of 10,000.

I was the only one laughing. Maybe it was too subtle for the average joe to get or something.

Paging Bert Fields...

The cease-and-desist letter should be in the mail by COB today.

Maybe he can cease and desist jumping around like a fairy and causing me mental anguish by making an ass out of himself on television, so that anytime I turn on the T.V. I am subjected to his frenzied love-psychosis.

I have a fever. And the only cure is... more cowbell (and less Tom Cruise)

In that case I would recommend turning off your tv until maybe mid-July.

what does "cow-bell" refer to?

I'm seeing it in IMAX on Sat.
Your alias reminds me, perhaps they should have called it "Bateman Begins" for Christian Bale. I'm sure the porn takeoff Buttman Begins is already out somewhere.

Let's hope so, for the sake of world peace.

But how could such a video possibly hold a candle to "Inside Lydia's Ass"?

Just saw it.

Not bad, not bad at all. Yes, the Keaton movies will always have a place in my heart, but this movie was probably the best of the 5. The way Bruce gets all the equipment to become Batman is not so far fetched, and it did have its comical points along the way.

Bale's performance was great, but for a moment there in the restaurant scene he acted in a way that my mind felt it was watching a scene from America Psycho that never made the final cut. Could just be that his image as PB is waaaaay too engrained in my mind.

Didn't they get the memo?
