Just a so so movie but Bale was fun in Harsh Times. "Damn, those are bad-ass kicks, dawg. You're lucky you got little ***** feet, or else I'd be stompin' around in them mother ****ers."

I probably wouldn't have it on my Netflix queue If Bale wasn't in it. I'll go ahead and watch it today.

I was kinda surprised pleasantly when I watched Harsh Times - Bale, as always, did an excellent job. Again immersed himself into the character.

And yeah T4 should've been more focused on Connors. It was okay in terms of some of the actions though. I still love this scene, good nod to T2:

In fact... Bale's pretty much tackled the dystopian film setting from all possible angles / characters hasn't he?

Reign of Fire ............. plays the pastor/"family man" trying to survive
Equilibrium ................ double-agent working for the fascist regime
T4............................ saviour of mankind / military leader (the opposite of Reign?)
TDKR........................ the superhero/deus ex machina

Found these gifs right now. Credits to whoever made these.

I laughed so hard about this scene from American Psycho, Bale has truly even a talent for comedy




followed by "Hey Paul" - BAM!

It was like
A really blatant performance.

Haha, yeah. I had some issues with the way they put American Psycho together, but I loved the way they worked in the chapters where Bateman describes cheesy 80s musicians. The Sussudio scene is one of the funniest things I've ever seen.

I still can't get rid of his voice screaming at himself saying
"WHY CAN'T YOU BLOODY OUTTHINK EM EH?!"

(admit it, it's something we ALL scream to ourselves from time to time )

Forgetting Batman for a moment (if possible)

Does anyone else see him as a modern day Robert De niro? He may not have the acting ability of De niro but he does have a similar mysterious style about him. Despite what I just said however I do rate him very highly as an actor. Much better than DiCaprio, in my opinion (who he is often compared to)

Who said he isn't a nice guy

Quote:
A 4-year-old Boardman boy with terminal cancer and his family were flown to California this week to meet Batman.

Jayden Barber, who was diagnosed with terminal bone cancer, and his family spent Wednesday with superstar actor Christian Bale, according to a Facebook page post by the family.

“Finally can share!!! Christian sent us to LA and we had lunch at Disney club 33 on wed!! He and his family were so awesome and down to earth!!!,” said a post on Lighting the Batsignal for Jayden page.

The family also posted pictures of Bale posing with the family on the site.

Jayden’s favorite character is Batman, and on Aug. 23 the Caped Crusader visited Jayden at the Boardman football stadium. That day was declared Jayden Barber Day in Youngstown.

DiCaprio is good enough but a joke next to Bale. Bale,Lewis & Oldman has their own league for me.

By ability or style, Bale is closest thing to De Niro. I hope he won't be a part of lame movies like De Niro in future.With that said, Tom Hardy favorite guy for "tough guys" "mafia" "villians" etc. parts so i wouldn't be surprise if people consider him as modern De Niro.

I would love to see Bale playing a villain by the way.

More details of how the whole thing came about from Jayden's mom:

http://www.vindy.com/news/2012/sep/0...casion-for--y/

Quote:
“Can I help you beat up bad guys?”

That’s what Youngstown’s Jayden Barber asked actor Christian Bale in California’s Disneyland this week.

His mom, Charlee Barber, said it was one among many special moments in a whirlwind trip for Jayden and his family.

The 5-year-old has captured the hearts of Mahoning Valley residents with his cancer battle.

He was diagnosed as a terminal cancer patient in July, and while his most recent tests have shown some remission, Jayden’s been there before.

The family is happy, but cautious.

His diagnosis, however, launched Charlee and dad, Tim, on a pursuit of Jayden’s wishes.

One of those wishes was to meet the real Batman.

The community joined the effort as 30,000-plus supporters took part in Facebook’s “Lighting the Batsignal for Jayden” page.

The Barbers flew this week to California to spend a few days at Disneyland in Anaheim.

Part of their stay was spending three hours Wednesday with Bale, the star of this summer’s hit film “The Dark Knight Rises.”

“We talked about lots of stuff,” Charlee said. “But a lot of it was Jayden and Christian talking the whole time. It was just really awesome. He genuinely cared about Jayden and our situation.”

Bale and Jayden chatted about costumes, the movie and more, Charlee added.

Bale, a native of England, even explained to Jayden why his voice is different in person than in the movie.

The three hours with Bale and his wife and daughter was special, Charlee said. But Bale made sure their entire four days was special, too.

As a guest of Bale, the family:

Had airfare for seven people.

Stayed in a top suite in the Grand Californian.

Had all food and extras paid for, including a $500 gift store account.

Saw the “Batman Live” stage performance and went backstage to meet the cast.

“We were treated like royalty, and it was all because of Christian,” Charlee said.

Their biggest challenge: Not being able to say a word for two weeks.

The family found out about the trip not long after the Aug. 23 Batman special event at Boardman Middle School, where a team of well-wishers put on a super-heroes show for Jayden and a stadium full of people.

It was complete with a lighted bat signal in the sky.

“[Bale] strictly wanted no publicity during or before but said we could share afterward. He went to great lengths to keep it private. It was just like old friends visiting,” Charlee said.

The trip actually was launched by one of “Jayden’s Warriors,” the many people who follow the Jayden story.

Lisa Lewis Wallace of Greenford Christian Church, who has yet to meet the Barbers, read about them just before the Boardman event.

She’s part of a ministry within her church — Big Reach Center of Hope — and has done plenty of celebrity contacting to get autographed memorabilia. So she was comfortable calling celebrity offices.

But asking for a celebrity visit was a first.

“I honestly was not going to call his office,” Wallace said. “Everyone on [the “Lighting the Batsignal for Jayden”] Facebook page was calling, and I did not want to harass them.”

So she called actress Anne Hathaway’s publicist first. Hathaway portrayed Catwoman in the film.

“They were so nice; it gave me the courage to call Christian’s publicist,” she said.

It actually helped that hundreds of “Jayden’s Warriors” had called.

Wallace said by the time she called, they were eager to help so as to curtail the phone calls.

A week later, Bale’s office called back with the plan.

The Barbers returned to the Valley this weekend, and back to Jayden’s regimen.

His last bone-marrow test showed 99.6 percent donor source, Charlee said. The goal is 100 percent.

Last spring, he had hit 99.8 percent, only to have cancer take over again.

He will have weekly blood-work tests that will monitor his health.

“We’re very skeptical at this point,” Charlee added.

Without Bale, the movie is but a shell of itself. I have a hard time picturing anyone else in the role.
