    Why does every aspect of this film have to be compared to 89 in some way?

    I never got this logic, why not just enjoy this movie and forget 89. It is its own movie, as this movie is.

    I did not know that. Hmm would explain why everyone knows something about it.

    Back when the audio feed was released my sister and cousin asked me what I was doing. She had no idea of TDK and my cousin didn't even know about Batman Begins.

    Setting aside the fact that these movies came out in two completely different years, let's look at them for a sec.

    First, 300 was hardly unknown. This movie was so far up its own ass with hype it was ridiculous. Second, the film itself is about as deep as a puddle of dog piss. Hype and pretty imagery sold this film, and that's all you need nowadays to do so (Spider-man 3, anyone?).

    As for Batman Begins, let's start with the complete lack of publicity for this flick. The trailers were sub-par, tv spots repetitive and as far as villains went we were getting Scarecrow. Regardless of how cool he was on film, the general public would've rather had a Joker or Two Face. Also, this film had to pick up the pieces after Batman And Robin. America was hesitant to see yet another Barman movie.

    That's what SR was to me a glossy & pretty looking film with no substance.

    I don't know why. I love Barman. And his special powers... cocktail making, and the ability to say 'Rough day?' while polishing a glass. There'd be queues round the block for that film.

    Yahoo is my browsers homepage...and even though they`re sort of always late on some news they always do make it number one headline when it eventually comes in...I remember a few months ago a lil bit after the first teaser came out they said it was the number one most viewed trailer and iron man was right under it

    My first reaction was 'Why would fans of the Die Hard movies be looking forward to this more than other people?'
    Oh well. Slow day.

    Thing is, my friends keep asking me, Why is it called TDK? They don't realize that DK means Batman. People i speak to are confused.

    Why? Because they're not batman fanboys like us?

    Doesn't matter anyway, once the marketing keeps up next year.

    Hey all. First time poster, looooooong time lurker.

    As far as the general public goes, I agree with most of you. They're idiots. So I'm sure they've seen the Today show. :cwink:
