Just got done with Batman Begins at the marathon!  I haven't watched this in a long time..  Got my iPod all cued up for The Dark Knight coming up next!

I think I'm one of the few in the universe who prefers Batman Begins over The Dark Knight.  And considering how amazing TDK is, that shows my high appreciation for Begins.
...and there he was, reigning supreme at number two.  The One... The Only... The Unabeefer.

Also, the fanboys broke rule No. 1 of Internet commenting, which is that you don't start with the personal attacks until after you've seen the movie.

Good rule.

After re-watching Batman Begins recently, I think I'm going to have to agree with you.

It's just nice and simple... and reminds me more of the animated series.  The Dark Knight really was the next logical step, as far as movies go... so I have no complaints about it.  Also, it made people aware of how The Joker should be, as opposed to Jack Nicholson... but I loved the more stripped down Batman-ness of Begins.

I have to agree too. I haven't watched Begins all the way through in a long time and I enjoyed it more than TDK.  Maybe I just watched the RiffTrax version too many times.  The mp3 lost sync pretty quickly for me in the theater and I still found myself laughing at points I remembered jokes.  Maybe too much RiffTrax can be a bad thing??

Good rule.

But after you've seen the movie, let the personal attacks fly!

Just back from the midnight show.

Spoiler free review: Wow.

And the theater was more crowded at a midnight show than I've seen in years. I think they had 6 theaters just showing DKR.

Having just returned from not only the midnight show, but the entire trilogy, I am a little tired right now. As such, I will post my full thoughts tomorrow. I do have this to say right now, though:

And as for the movie itself.  It was...  good.  I think it's the "worst" of the three, but still good.  It's not even close to being a Spiderman 3 or Xmen 3. 

I thought the pacing was a bit wonky, the 2nd acting was a bit of a bore.  I think it was too grand in it's scope.  Still fun and it does have a satisfying conclusion.

There might have been a little too much pandering through cameos and little "winks."

For some reason I could not figure out why I knew this actor. I'm an idiot.
