Default Re: Batman Begins Best Origin Movie ever ?

And once again, I'm only talking about the pilot (origin movie) not the entire series which, indeed, feels very much 70's. The pilot, though, was a different thing, believe me. There were other episodes directed by Johnson, as I said, which were good but they had that 70's feeling all over and some cliches the series used to much throughout its run. But the pilot was amazing.

Now I have vague memories of The Adventures oif Superman, but I cannot remember the same level of seriousness.
