^ My question is who the hell cares if he wears eyeliner or not? Most actors wear makeup of some kind.

The movie has been out for a whole 11 days; just about the point where substantive discussion descends into minutiae and nitpick territory. I was just about to point out that the tread on Batman's boots didn't look like they had the grip to do the wall scaling seen in the film.

More seriously, I usually don't care. But when his face appeared before me all of twenty feet tall, I was a bit distracted by it.

THANK YOU!

In fact, you can pretty much guarantee that anyone who appears on camera for a professional shoot of any kind wears makeup, which generally includes eyeliner/masquera.

Sometimes I think some of the folks who "contribute" to these thread must think that the footage from all the movies they watch is captured "live" by some intrepid TV news crew.

"What! You mean they're ACTING! From a SCRIPT!"

Sheesh.

Am I the only one who didn't notice that he had dark eyes? The think that bothered me most about him was that he reminded me of Nathan Petrelli.

Re: The Dark Knight - Grading & Discussion

Wow and easily TDK is the GODFATHER of all Comic book movies...

I am a little tired so won't go into massive detail but the movie was so well done from the pacing of the movie, the dark Joker worked out fantastic and Heath does warrant a Oscar nod. I love the twists with Gordon and Rachel plus Harvey Dent was amazing and after seeing Spiderman 3 struggle with having more than one enemy, Nolan pulled off a Joker/Two Face plot almost perfectly.

To be honest a small part of me wished that Dent/Two Face carried over into a 3rd movie with The Joker having a camo but it all worked fine and set up the great final moments with Batman truly on his own. I never thought a comic book movie could be written with such a serious and realistic tone to it and match almost any movie written in Hollywood history.

I hope there is a 3rd one since Bale did sign a 3 film package but it will depend on Nolan but will the 3rd one be called...The Caped Crusader ?cause I can't think of many titles though I think the perfect name for a 3rd & final movie would be simply...

Batman.

Re: The Dark Knight - Grading & Discussion

I saw The Dark Knight on Saturday afternoon - after watching Batman Begins beforehand of course - and I must say it came across quite average after all the expectations I had of it. It just felt off, for lack of a better word, after Batman Begins, with which I clicked right away three years ago - hell, BB is my favourite comic-book movie! Maybe I'll feel differently when I buy TDK on DVD at the end of the year - yes, I am that much of a BB fan - but for now it gets a big 'meh' from me. A shame, really, I hoped there would finally be a comic book movie to better the first Nolan Batman film

On the other hand, it does show how horrible that voice is. I'm all for him putting on a voice so's not to be recognised, but at least make it understandable.

^ I didn't have problem with any of Batman's dialog (in either of the movies) and English isn't even my native language.

I didn't, in general, there was just a couple of parts where I took a second to realise what he said, or where it just grated on me.
