Re: Steven Spielberg calls the Nolan Batman movies beautiful art films
My experience with Begins was interesting. I had heard they were planning to make a new Batman movie but completely forgot about it at the time it came out. Randomly stumbled onto it at IMDB around a month after it was released.
The high IMDB rating intrigued me. I was thinking, "A Batman movie with such a high rating?" So I checked Rotten Tomatoes and sure enough the critics were giving it a lot of praise too. I said what the hell, I should check it out while it's still in theaters.
Obviously a month after the film came out, it wasn't a large crowd at the theater. But people seemed very excited when the Joker card was revealed at the end. I was pumped. Still the best superhero movie I've ever seen.
