    I described it to a friend like this:

    It was like seeing Ana Paquin naked, nothing to really complain about, it's just weird.

    I don't wanna know spoilers, but every single time that the Bat movies has had a Robin or Catwoman, it has sucked. Batman, IMO, should be a solo character.

    Quick question, OP, how did it compare to the second film?

    That one was the best comic film so far.

    All the reviews keep saying Cat Woman was really good in this one?

    The 2nd one was a perfect storm of hype and interest when Heath did such a good job and then died. That in itself is hard to beat.

    During any given 3 hour period, there are several things I like to do.


    Eat, walk around, use the bathroom at leisure, not be ripped off.


    I can't see those things happening at a 3 hour movie.

    You could wear an adult brief for the bathroom at leisure part.

    "Catwoman" isn't in this movie. Anne Hathway plays Selina Kyle, and is a "cat burglar", but is never referred to as "cat woman". And she steal every scene. She's fantastic.


    Minor Spoiler ahead-----








    As for "Robin" ------ we'll see in about 2 or 3 years, methinks. Given how good JGL was in this film, I'm hyped for the Robin movie.

    Movies are stupidly long these days. When was it decided that an hour and a half wasn't enough? :dunno:

    The second was a lot better mainly due to the joker. The new one was still really good, just hard to top that movie


    Sent from my iPhone... which probably auto-corrected something wrong

    Idk, when they decided that the standing in line/camping out ratio wasn't in proportion enough with the 2 hour movies?

    You gotta go to a drive in! I spent 18$ last night for my gf and I. We picked up chinese on the way there and cuddled in my comfortable car. When I had to go potty I missed about 1 minute of the movie as I went and washed hands.:supergrin:

    Nowhere near as good. The plot was just not as nuanced.

    While I agree with you on the idea in theory, there is a few problems with that.

    - No drive ins anywhere near me
    - Heat! I can't run my AC that long without driving
    - Chinese, sounds good to me
    - She said no when I asked her

    My hometown had an operating drive in up until the mid 80s but I only went once when I was very very young. Snuck in actually :embarassed:

    If it is only 90min long it will annoy the hell out of me, and is probably a crap movie. I want a movie to be at least 2hrs at a minimum so they can get all of the information in there.
