83. Batman Begins (A+)

Continuing with the watch/rewatch, just in time for the completion of the trilogy. Seven years later, this is still a blast, and, apart from perhaps The Incredibles, the best superhero movie ever made (I recall deciding I ultimately preferred this to The Dark Knight; we'll see if that holds up). It has a great cast (and Nolan has started gathering the actors who'll carry him through the next decade), apart from Katie Holmes; partly it's how the character is written (I once read a review describing Rachel in this movie as an eager student council president, which is pretty accurate), but she just seems out of place, and Maggie Gyllenhaal did far more with this character in her next appearance.
