It wasn't a bad movie. For three hours I expected more action. It was more of a detective story I guess.

Cat woman's line about privileged white men was annoying but I guess they put that trash in everything these days.

I hated the nose on the cowl. It was weird and rounded and distracting. Actually I guess I didn't really like the bat suit much. Affleck's bat suit was a lot better. And Affleck was a much better Bruce Wayne. I don't think the new guy is a good Bruce Wayne.

Idk I'm torn. It was an ok dark detective story. But three hours is nuts and the best action fight scene is in like the first 10 minutes.

Colin Farrell was an excellent Penguin and was probably my favorite part of the movie. I'm sure they'll make a sequel because that's what Hollywood does, hopefully he comes back as the penguin.

The surprise guy in the cell next to riddler was good too.


I watched it last night. During the first half hour I couldn't decide what to think. But then something clicked and I really got into it. It has a real "Sin City" vibe which I like. I'm going to to say this is my favorite Batman movie.

What I liked most was that is wasn't another "super hero" movie. In this film Batman was human, almost normal. He wasn't a super hero, he was just a vigilante. All his tech was within the realm of possibility (well, sort of), not the fantastical stuff in the other movies. I felt Pattison did to Bruce Wayne, what Ledger did to the Joker.

I liked the Uncharted movie. At the end Drake got his signature shoulder holsters,.. and at the very very very end Sully finally got his moustache.

I hope it gets a sequel. As a fan of the games it was fun picking apart the movie like, "oh that's from part 2, .. that's from part 3,.. that's from part 4!" .. they actually did a better job than I was expecting.

I still think Tom Holland is too young to be Drake. But if this becomes a movie franchise in about 10 years he'll probably look right.

Wahlberg does actually sort of look like the young Sully shown in flashbacks in the game.

I like that they have Tom Holland wearing the same shirt as well...


Definitely seems like they're setting up a sequel.

I love the pitch meeting videos. I'm sure I've watched at least 20 of them.

All the Spider-Mans, Godzillas, etc. They're all good.

yeah that's a good one. I like whenever he works in that whole, "I'm gonna need you to get all the way off my back about that!"

I didn't even know it was based on a game until I came to this thread.

I watched it. It was fun. Not awesome, but a good bit of fun. Like the Nicholas Cage looking for treasure movie.
By the bye, the new Nick Cage movie looks incredible.
Once the Pitch Meeting comes out, maybe we get them here.

Fuck.

Hiroyuki Watanabe has died.


If the name isn't ringing any bells, in terms of movies in this thread, he was in the 90s Gamera trilogy and Godzilla, Mothra and King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack. In addition, he was the commander in Ultraman Gaia, played Kamen Rider Gaoh in a Den-O movie and was Taiga Saejima in the Garo franchise.

This bummed me out today.
