The Batman

my review of: the Bat­man. don’t wor­ry this won’t be long, and nowhere near as excru­ci­at­ing­ly long (or dull) of yet anoth­er install­ment of the caped cru­sad­er. Like Spi­der­man 🕷they (the CGI porn direc­tors) can’t: get it right get it good get it per­fect get it did with the actu­al fans in mind let me guess anoth­er reboot will hap­pen in 2 – 3 years tops the only good aspects of this movie is that it did­n’t have George Klooney, Val Kilmer, or oth­er very non-bat­­man­ish actors in it. George Klooney sound­ed like a total retard dur­ing his stint as the dark knight (lolz real­ly he did). so dur­ing the fes­tive week I caught this. hav­ing to fast for­ward some parts b/​​c it was so damned lethar­gi­cal­ly long. the feel­ing of this whole film: lets be depressed about being depressed. we’re in this stu­pid movie how depress­ing!

I like Mag­ne­to aka Michael Fass­ben­der.  he some­times comes across as too seri­ous that it’s pret­ty unin­ten­tion­al­ly comedic. like are you going to stare holes through my soul or some shit? Lolz. Well its rare (actu­al­ly: nev­er) that David Finch­er does action. so you can bank on it being an art­house action flick (which it is). it’s visu­al­ly gor­geous you actu­al­ly do feel like you’re in Paris or oth­er parts of the world through­out. so there’s that. what makes this com­pelling and watch wor­thy is it puts you in the pilots seat. You become an assas­sin and you get a feel and taste of what that is actu­al­ly like. And its not like the Tom Cruise inter­pre­ta­tion of it in Col­lat­er­al (though that movie was one of the few of his I actu­al­ly did like). The sus­pen­sion of belief …
