Re: Batman 89 vs Batman Begins
I was never really impressed by Batman Begins when it was released and I actually went in it with a lot of anticipation. Mostly because I was always in that "Bale for Batman" camp since 1999 when the Year One movie was being developed. In the end I was left high and dry for the most part. If anything I appreciate it more now than I did back then despite an uneven first act (Thomas Wayne and Young Bruce in particular REALLY annoyed me), the crappy third act, extremely forced pathos all throughout and questionable to downright amateur performances from Linus Roach, the young Bruce Wayne kid, Katie Holmes and Ken Watanabe, Rutger Hauer & Tom Wilkinson who I usually like a lot.
I enjoy comic book adaptations but I'm a comic book fan first and foremost. Not a comic book movie fan.
