It changed everything. 1997 I saw the end of batman. I had to watch superhero movies like X-men and Spider-Man which I enjoyed but I wanted Batman to Return. I wanted my realistic batman. I saw this independent film called Memento that I thought it was fantastic. a game changer. when I first saw Christian Bale it was in American Psycho. I heard Leonardo DiCaprio was going to play a killer I was intrigued and then disappointed that he left and a new guy took over. Turned out to be the right guy and I saw a star. So when I heard the Director of Memento was Directing the new Batman movie and Christian Bale was staring....I knew they nailed it. It was year one and It was the batman we deserved but not only that it was the one Movies needed. You say No? here's my examples of why Batman Begins Changed Everything..... The List of Movies Inspired by Batman Begins Casino Royale Iron Man The Incredible Hulk Terminator Salvation Star Trek Sherlock Holmes X-Men: First Class Rise of the Planet of the Apes Amazing Spider-Man and more On July 19 I'll be Fortunate enough to see BATMAN BEGINS In Theaters in IMAX one more time. The Dark Knight is a movie that will go down as a Classic. But Batman Begins for Me....will go down as a Masterpiece.
