He's goofy-looking in Twilight; I blame the hair. He's pretty damn handsome in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.

You fuck the cherry pie, because I imagine it would be the closest to an actual sin slot. You marry the banana bread, because that's just a lovely smell to keep around. You kill the doughnut because to kill it, you eat it, and doughnuts are delicious.

That's what I've been saying since the previews of Twilight came out. Dude's flat-out ugly.

A Danny Boyle Batman movie would be pretty damn phenomenal I think.

To throw my two-cents into the Batman talk, you don't even need a popular Batman rogue. Based on the ending of TDK you could make the conflict between Batman and the city; he's on the run from the police, some people think he killed Dent, a small group still believes in him, and the entire time he is trying to fight the mob.

Personally, I think this could work as well as a known rogue, if not better. However, if we have to have an established villain, I'd say either Killer Croc or Black Mask. Both are easy to adapt into Nolan's universe without changing the character too much. Obviously, I'm thinking more circus freak Croc from TAS, rather than dinosaur from current comics. As for the public not knowing who they are, that's a weak argument. I highly doubt the public was familiar with Ra's Al Ghul, the Scarecrow, or Falcone. The best way to get the public familiar with these characters is to throw them in a movie.

Nolan has already stated he won't use Penguin or Robin, I'm unsure of him using Freeze, it doesn't seem like it would fit in his vision. Of course, I don't know how much it matters what Nolan has said he will or won't do since he hasn't even signed on to a third movie.

Joshua wrote:Twilight is not a good movie. I don't say that because it's teenage girl fodder, I could care less who the movie is aimed at. I say that on pure cinematic achievement and storytelling and it fails at every level.

Essentially what it boils down to is there is no conflict or any real problem for anyone to face. Edward Cullen is an immortal who is gorgeous to look at. He's intelligent and athletic and doesn't really have any problems. When Bella starts snooping around he finally confides in her what he really is, "You want to see what I really am?!" as if he's hiding some terrible dark secret. He then steps into the sunlight and becomes even more beautiful. That's his big horrible tragedy; he sparkles like diamonds. Okay, but he's hundreds of years old and still having to live the life of a teenage, that should eat at him right? I mean, that should provide some really cool duality to the character? Nope, as old as he is his personality is as old as his appearance. He behaves, thinks, and feels just like any typical angsty teenager. Meanwhile, Bella just moves to town and like most kids, should feel like an outsider and should have to overcome some sort of conflict. Being a teenager is tough and it's even tougher in a new place. Well, it is for the rest of us anyway. Bella is instantly liked by everyone.

The movie is about nothing more than these two people getting to know each other. What should be covered in a ninety-second montage is the premise of the entire movie. The point of a movie is for characters to overcome obstacles and to grow and change by the end of the movie. None of that occurs. They simply go about their teenage lives, briefly fight the so-called "evil" vampires (you know, the ones that actually do what vampires are known for doing), and then go to the prom. Oh, and there's vampire baseball. This is not a movie, this is simply an excuse for girls to gather together and swoon over Robert Pattinson.

You made some interesting points, but it was all for naught, because of the bolded.

I COULDN'T care less.

Nolan should keep up the Batman vs. the Mob angle. At first I was against using Black Mask as a character in the movie but it does make sense. Black Mask flows well into the way Nolan has been doing the movies. There should be another villain to go along with the Black Mask. Croc would work well or even Bane.

Listening now. X3 was a terrible movie, both because of the heavy character destruction, and also because it was just a badly put together film.

The scene where the X-Men roll up on Jean's house, and they are walking towards it for a bit, a nice dramatic shot. The camera pans around, and as the AUDIENCE sees the evil mutants on the front lawn, that is when the X-Men react. Were they playing in third person or some shit?

X-men 3 is a terribly flawed movie, but I didn't hate it. I'd put it above Daredevil but below all of the generally accepted quality comic book flicks.

As for Lee's idea that Warner Bros. should decide on a date with or without Nolan, that's bullshit. Fox wouldn't wait for Singer and we got a less-than-stellar follow-up to X2. Nolan didn't want to jump straight onto a Batman sequel after Begins, had WB decided to not wait on him we wouldn't have The Dark Knight.

When you've got quality talent, studios need to wait for them to be ready to take on the movie. You rush that shit and you get sub-par movies. Plus, Inception looks fucking awesome. I like that we don't get bombarded with Batman movies. Let that shit simmer.

Your exact words:
At this point quit pussyfooting around dude, you in or are you out?

Which, to me, comes across as "We're making this movie with or without you, are you with us?" Maybe I just misinterpreted your intent.

Yeah, that's my fault. I apparently wasn't clear. I'm just surprised that's not the road the studio is taking. "You can't rush great movie making," but you can rush out a sequel to make another bajillion dollars. The Hollywood machine being what it is, I'm just shocked they're not being more aggressive in getting a new Batman movie off the ground.

Fuckin' ELI! Glad SOMEbody around here has my back. I'd completely forgotten about that shitty set up with the approach on Jean's house, but you're absolutely right.

This movie had the one training sequence against the Sentinels, and that rocked, and then it fell apart. And speaking of Sentinels, my wet dream for the opening to an X-Men film:

A car full of teenagers si driving down the highway. They're goofing off, singing along to the music, whatever. You hear the roar of a jet fly close by, the car shakes a bit, and all the kids start looking out the windows. They (and the camera) jerk around to look out the windshield as we hear a massive thud/cars honking/swerving. We see two massive feet, and the camera angle pulls in close to the windshield, panning up as it does, to show the full form of the Sentinel. We cut to "Sentinel view" with all sorts of targeting reticles, identifying human, human, human, mutant. The Sentinel rips the roof off the car, the pink haired punk girl shrugs off a coat, opens her wings and takes flight, the Sentinel targets. We switch to an isometric view, watching the Sentinel's arm open a weapons array. All depending on the tone of the film, we either cut to the girl's perspective as a flash envelops her and she's taken down for the count, or from the same isometric view, we see ice begin to encase the Sentinel's arm. The beam still melts its way through and fires, but by that point, the returning Alan Cumming as Nightcrawler has leapt up to catch the young Pixie and port her to safety. "You wait here, fraulien. We will deal with this." "You're..." "The X-Men. Ja." Cue credits.
