Default Re: Steven Spielberg calls the Nolan Batman movies beautiful art films

I remember walking into Batman Begins thinking it would be good because of al the buzz around the screenplay that had leaked and the fact that Christian Bale seemed like a perfect casting. but then seeing Liam Neeson as Ra's Al Ghul (a surprise), Michael Caine who I knew was in the movie, but still had a "wow" factor and especially Gary Oldman as Jim Gordon drew me in much more than I realized.

The JJoker is right, I always liked Batman and Gordon's relationship in te comics and even to a lesser extent TAS, but it is not in the Burton movies. Seeing Gordon the detective and Batman team-up, as well as this Batman almost build a whole network of "Bat-mfaily" allies from the get-go (Alfred, Gordon, Fox, Rachel Dawes) gave this world not so much a realism as a tactile texture that made it feel lived-in and depp. As much as I love the Burton films (still do), the world is very shallow and you don't feel like there is any life beyond the frame of what's going on. Nolan I felt brought the Batman world that I love and it was very rewarding.

Also, there were a few shots, namely when Bale is staring down Ra's at the end (both on the train and after he says "I can beat two of your pawns!"), as well as when he is talking to Rachel where I just felt like "that's Batman" the character and not an actor in the costume.

So yes, I always was a fun, even if the third act seemed a little messy.

Yeah, I love Spielberg movies. Great to see a director praising another director.

I loved the third act; grounding everything and then going fulltilt with the ninja attack was excellent.
