Default Re: TDKR Oscar Chances? - Part 1

I can't comment on the Catwoman threads, because I find them a bit pathetic and don't post in them. But a thread about the movie's Oscar chances are exactly where a debate on its relative quality and shortcomings should occur. Unless, of course, you believe it should be given over to hopelessly fanciful predictions of TDKR being covered in glory...

Please point out what this creepyness that you're talking about actually is.
I agree. I hesitate to use the word "creepy", but it seems that there are those that must express their love for every element of a movie and experience a small moral panic every time it faces criticism. I think that is...unbalanced. I have found few people who dislike everything about TDKR, and I am certainly not one; people with criticisms tend to be critical of some elements. That is normal and healthy- after all, there is good and bad in almost everything.

That is the nub of the issue. I don't think that TDKR is exactly going to leave the Oscars loaded with bounty because, enjoy it though I did, I don't think it is an especially masterful or impressive movie.

That is the sort of comment you might reasonably expect to read in a thread with this title- as well as contrary views, of course.
