    I really hated "the Batman Voice" in Begins but got into it this time. I guess because in this one I really got the impression that Batman is a lunatic and so it made sense that he would talk like that. Before I was questioning why Christian Bale thought Batman would sound like that, like did he think it was cool or something? But then this time it just seemed more like Bruce Wayne is some crazy rich guy that everyone kind of tolerates or helps because the overall result is better for Gotham than if he wasn't there. I figured that's why Gordan has that speech about results too. The fights with Joker really brought it out too for me, like these are not normal people by any stretch, him in his dress pants, Batman in his brand new body armour. Maybe that's a result of the whole realistic approach to super heroes, in the Clooney one (haha) I never gave any thought to why he would do anything, he was just Batman, so obviously he's gonna do it, so I could be misinterpreting their intentions but that doesn't really make any difference. It was a strange film anyway, but I really liked it.

    I noticed the anti-chinese vibe too and thought it was strange, especially considering they filmed in HK.

    actually i was going to post and make some of the same points you just did. saw it last night at the imax and it made more sense in a way, it was just so massive and overwhelming that i started to look at it as more unreal than i did when i saw it last week. still dont think its the best film ever of course but its really good for what it is, even if it has a few more narrative threads than are maybe necessary. watching it a second time there were quite a few things i didnt catch the first time.

    That's what I thought - did we miss something?

    my youngest son has a pair of those. he sometimes insists on wearing them out, but once i made the mistake of addressing him as spiderman. identity is very important, if a somewhat confusing concept, to a four year old. "i'm NOT spiderman" and then getting really upset. i thought all kids wanted to be a superhero.

    Please excuse the slight rewind to an earlier part of this thread.

    I collected all of these when I was a lad. It was a Marvel UK production and ran to only 17 issues before petering out, but it was in effect the Marvel universe declaring it's own absurdity.
    Hope I've still got them all somewhere cos they're worth 60 each apparently.

    YES!!! You just named the only two DC regulars that ever really grabbed me.

    I've often thought it was a pity that Fate never really got a properly written arc the way so many other "re-invented" characters have.

    I can't decide whether you're The Joker and Craner's Batman or you're Batman, Barty's Robin and Craner's The Joker.
