In 1988 Tim Burton brought us the first Batman film starring Micheal Keaton and Jack Nicholson. Taking more of the mood from the critically acclaimed and my personal favorite graphic novel Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns instead of the 1960s campy, rockem sockem, word pop-up mash up. It completely change how we see Batman on both the comics and onto the screen. Spawning three sequels with the later two being directed by Joel Schumacher(Shame on you for Batman and Robin which I will never talk about unless I want my BP to spike)
But it was the year 2005 that Batman gotten into the real, thanks to British director Christopher Nolan. His first film in his trilogy Batman Begins showed us how Batman would turn out in today’s society with a realistic view. And it worked. He then followed that up with The Dark Knight which made the Joker scary as fuck. This year brings us to the last of the trilogy with The Dark Knight Rises. Now my thoughts.
THAT WAS THE BEST DAMN MOVIE I’VE SEEN IN A LONG DAMN TIME!!!! Bane was absolutely viscous. Taking away the sour taste that was from Batman and Robin when Bane was a mindless drone. This Bane came straight from Knightfall, he will fuck you up. In this case from the movie, HE FUCKED BATMAN UP. The fight between them in the sewers, EPIC! Anne Hathaway as Catwoman, she was great. But I noticed a few fan-winks Mr. Daggett straight from the animated series and the design of the Bat, come on that came from Batman Beyond. And Miranda Tate and the Save the World Foundation I knew she was Talia Al’Goul and they tried to play off that Bane was Ra’s son. A great twist and it could’ve worked, but that would’ve pissed off some fans. Understandable. And she worked as well. But the best scene was the war where Gotham’s finest led by Batman were taking on Bane. And by the end, all I have to say is WOW. Now since this series has now ended, I’m now curious on how Chris Nolan and Zach Snyder would work with Man of Steel. Would the god-like Superman fit in in the real world? We’ll find out next summer. But for now, I must say Thank you, Mr. Nolan.
