Default Re: Batman Begins Best Origin Movie ever ?

Iron Man had Jeff Bridges going all crazy and Tony Stark revealing to the world he is Iron Man at the very end, which was awesome and original. It wins by default.

As for Captain America? The actual origin part is great. I'd say the first hour or so of Captain America is right up there in terms of great comic book movies. But it does fall apart towards the end. And i didn't like the blatant green screen backgrounds.
I agree with everyhting, except Capt. America which I haven't seen yet.

Errrr... yea, you kinda do. You're Batman. And he says it all smug, like he's really satisfied with himself or something.
I agree again. What happened with:

RA'S: Your compassion is a weakness your enemies will not share.
BRUCE: That's why it's so important. It separates us from them.

I guess Bruce learned his lesson. Ra's won.
