    Says a lot when that scene is basically lifted directly from Batman Forever and Joel Schumacher did it better.
    I refuse to believe Schumacher could ever do anything better. I daresay I can take a shit with more skill and wit than he can.

    Nice to see I'm not the only one who has issues with the Batman films, I feel like it's been a downward slope from the first one.

    Schumaker has made some great films. Was pretty much golden until he did Batman and has been shit every since weirdly.

    Tigerland is pretty decent too. Still, the Batman films he did are so appallingly bad that it pretty much tarnishes everything else.

    He's one of these directors who was born to make 80s films basically.

    I.E gay.

    it is a shame that when you say Schumacher to people, the first thing they think of is the shitty batman movies.

    Its amazing that falling down came out like the year before batnipples the movie.

    Bane's voice might be ridiculous and the second worst thing in TDKR (first being Marion Cotillard's death scene), but my god is it a fun impression to do!

    I thought the worst thing in TDKR was the utterly unexplained plot hole where Bruce, freshly escaped from the pit in the middle of the desert in Tunisia or wherever the hell he is (it's distinctly called "some ancient part of the world" ), suddenly appears back in Gotham a few days later, despite it being locked down and watched. To me, that was one of those moments you couldn't just gloss over as "he's Batman" or "it doesn't matter". It ripped me straight out of the film and left the third act just feeling weird. I'm half convinced it was just a fevered dream sequence and Bruce is still dangling from a rope in the Pit.

    You honestly think that's worse than him using his grisly voice when no fucker is around???
    "so that's what that feels like!"

    Well, that was just fan service from Kingdom Come. Gaping plot-holes are far worse.

    Don't think it was fan service. Just theft.

    True enough. There's fuckloads that's just lifted from comics. Like using hydraulic braces in order to actually move around because he's destroyed his cartilage etc.

    It's quite a lazy film when it comes down to it.

    Batman Begins - 7/10

    Disjointed.

    The Dark Knight - 8/10

    Everything in this film is interesting except for Batman himself.

    I mean obviously Nightfall was the inspiration behind much of the film, but other than that yeah. Lots of little bits nicked. Same with the Marvel Avengers films.

    The thing with the avengers is that they are clearly marvel and clearly comic characters. Plots and dialogue are lifted wholesale and its no problem because itís a comic film. Hitch based Fury on SLJ and then ten years later, he is playing him on screen and its fine. Its comics.

    The Nolan movies arenít comic movies. They are action thrillers starring a guy in a rubber gimp suit, so when it borrows stuff, again, its quite jarring.

    Kill List

    Was quite enjoying it as a subdued but brutal hitman flick, then it goes all Wickerman out of nowhere and completely lost me.

    WTF?!/10

    Exactly! Give it a decade and no one will remember the super hero comic film that was embarrassed to be just that!

    On the other hand it's quite a clever use of these small signals to fans.

    Avengers did the same, eg Hawkeye (shit btw) jumping off roof and firing up was an exact copy of a comic panel.
