Ahh, my mistake. It's been a while since I've watched the movie and I didn't read through the whole thread once people started posting huge posts in which they analyized each comment.
That makes it more realistic, though I think the thing I thought was weird was how they portrayed the penguins as being able to understand Penguin, and the weird little penguin "sending off" when Oswald died.
I don't mind the little weird aspects now as much as I did when I was younger, but I'm still not fond of the strange things like that. I don't mind them in one of Burton's stand alone movies, but when he added those into a Batman movie, especially when B89 was fairly low on the bizarre end (for a Burton movie) I just didn't like it that much.
