Re: The Dark Knight Megathread (USE THIS! Love, the mods)

^^ I love how people are comparing two pictures in the same dramatic context when they clearly are not. As I've said before, I think that Katie and Maggie are about the same when it comes to acting chops. For whatever reason, I cannot stand Maggie in the previous things I've seen her in, but I do admit, she looks more believable in the role (Katie looks very young, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but if you are an Assistant DA...). It is a shame that Katie won't be back in TDK, mostly because I thought she and Two-Face guy (can't think of name) had good chemistry in Thank You for Smoking.

Ebert's a big Batman fan. He didn't like any of the Burton/Schmacher films.
If memory serves, he actually gave a fairly positive review of Batman Forever, but don't quote me on that.

I can understand him simply saying he doesn't like those efforts, but to continually nitpick and criticize them in my opinion shows bias...
You mean like just about everyone here? Jackson, dude, you have gone silly with love for Batman Begins and Superman Returns and defend those films with all your heart. Doesn't that show bias on your part? I'm not saying it is wrong (I'm right there with you on SR), but perhaps this guy really, really, really hates this current Bat-franchise the way you hate Spidey 2. Maybe he just likes his superhero films light and fluffy, like Fantastic Four was.
