I was talking to a friend of mine today and we both agreed that the primary flaw of the entire movie was the last half hour or so. In short, too much Two Face, which made the ferry sequence anti-climactic and took away from the Joker's final conflict with Batman. He suggested that when Two Face is "revealed" in the hospital, that should have been the end of his storyline, to be saved for the next movie. That would have left plenty of time to concentrate on The Joker's last stand, instead of the somewhat rushed and crowded ending that we got.

I completely and utterly disagree.  The final fate of Two Face was essential to the Joker's storyline.  The only way I can see avoiding that last half hour would be to write Dent completely out of the script and focus on the "boat scene" at the end as Joker's primary crime.  As it stands, I thought it was well done in that you had the joker successful in one arena (Two Face) and failing in the other (the boat sequence).  We were left with alternate feelings of hope and hopelessness.

I find Alan Moore to be an oftentimes brilliant writer (avoiding any mention of his foray into the world of music is probably for the best), but an incredibly obnoxious human being.  I love this quote regarding Zack's previous film 300 and how it ultimately becomes a slam against Frank Miller:

Alan Moore, the writer of renowned comic book Watchmen, has attacked director Zack Snyder for bringing his creation to the big screen. When asked by Entertainment Weekly if he was curious about Snyder's version of his story, he replied: "I would rather not know." Moore, who previously disowned the Warner Bros adaptation of his comic V For Vendetta, voiced his disapproval of Snyder due to his involvement with 300. "He's the person who made 300. I've not seen any recent comic book films, but I didn't particularly like the book 300,"

As it stands I really don't know who they are going to use as the villian in the next movie and didn't see any hints at it unlike the first movie. 

Saw it last night.  Not sure if it's a hint or not but when Lucious was discussing the suit mods Bruce asked him how it would fair vs dogs.  After the big dog/little dog exchange, he says it should do alright vs cats.

catwoman has been done to perfection already, though.  bringing her back to the batman fold at this juncture would be a step down for the stellar franchise, imho.  sure, the dark knight is a great film and nolan an accomplished and talented director, but halle berry made the catwoman her own and the penultimate battle between her and a nigh invulnerable sharon stone (resulting from perfume, no less!  what brilliance!) easily beats out the subdued madness of Ledger's Joker. 

remember the dialogue from Catwoman?  How it defined and shaped a new generation of thinking superheroes?  Lines like:

Amateurs! You boys thought you could come in here and steal all these beautiful things? What a purrrfect idea!


Time to accessorize!

still challenge script writers to this day to up the ante. 

nay my friend, i fear catwoman is not an option.  not if we want to protect the integrity of ms. berry's portrayal.

Saw it saturday after 3 rum and cokes at the bar attached to the Evanston 12 cinema.  Really enjoyed what I can remember.  I agree with someone else's assessment that the continuity of HB's relationship to Jeffrey Timbor's character was off from the first one.  However, the visuals alone in this movie make it a keeper.  Plus, more Abe is never a bad thing.

Glad to hear it made number 1 at the box office this past weekend.  Good directors who take a chance and make interesting films should make money...while the people who made Meet Dave should be pushed into making DMV crash videos.
8619  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Oh how I've missed you, Mr. Cohen on: July 07, 2008, 07:33:00 PM
As in Sacha Baron Cohen, the satirist comedian behind Borat...or, as I like to call it, "The Movie That Almost Made Me Wet Myself in a Public Place".

This time he's working the world with his Austrian Male Model character, Bruno.


It's unclear whether his Mossad retirement benefit card will be confiscated, but former spy and current political analyst Yossi Alpher is certainly feeling sheepish after being fooled by actor Sacha Baron Cohen, aka Borat.

Cohen was in Jerusalem two weeks ago filming scenes for his next movie, Bruno, based on a character the British comedian played in his Da Ali G Show. In that show, Cohen played Bruno as a flamboyant Austrian fashion and celebrity journalist, regularly interviewing unwitting members of the public who weren't aware he wasn't a real person.

Cohen's producers contacted Alpher, a writer on Israel-related strategic issues and co-editor of the Israeli-Palestinian political Web site Bitterlemons, and asked him to be interviewed along with a Palestinian for a documentary that would explain the Israeli-Palestinian conflict to the youth of the world.

"The producers explained that our interviewer, a German rock star, was the perfect person to establish strong communication with our audience," Alpher wrote in a column that appeared in The Forward.

Alpher - who served in the Israel Defense Forces as an intelligence officer, followed by 12 years' service in the Mossad and senior positions at the Jaffee Center for Strategic Studies at Tel Aviv University and the American Jewish Committee's Israel/Middle East office - realized something might not be quite kosher when the "rock star" interviewee brought up Hamas:

"Vait, vait. Vat's zee connection between a political movement and food? Vy humous?" asked the interviewer in heavily accented English, echoing the obsession with the chickpea spread shared by Adam Sandler's Zohan. "Yesterday I had to throw away my pita bread because it vas dripping humous. Unt it's too high in carbohydrates."

The absurd Hamas-humous confusion went on for several minutes, and Alpher began to smell a rat, but stuck with the interview nonetheless - thus joining the long list of prominent figures down the years who have sought to maintain their gravitas while being tricked by one of Cohen's ridiculous personas.

It got worse, Alpher acknowledged: "Then the interviewer declared, 'Your conflict is not so bad. Jennifer-Angelina is worse.'"

Alpher and his Palestinian partner exchanged puzzled glances at the comparison of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict to Jennifer Aniston and Angelina Jolie fighting over Brad Pitt, but because they had both received a fee for their appearance, and still hadn't completely internalized that their interviewer was not exactly who he seemed, they soldiered on.

"We played it straight and square... We smiled at the idiotic questions and answered them patiently... We knew something ludicrous was happening but couldn't quite figure it out," Alpher wrote. "Our rock-star host concluded with a mind-boggling song about the epic Middle East conflict between 'Jews and Hindus.' At the crescendo, he grabbed our hands and joined them with his."

Only after the completion of the interview did Alpher realize he'd been had, and that Cohen in the guise of Bruno had struck again.

Alpher had signed a release form before being filmed for the movie, due to be released in May 2009, so he won't likely be filing a lawsuit against Cohen like some of the comedian's patsies in 2006's smash hit Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan.

Trying to make the best of the experience, Alpher asserted, "We ourselves were not being ridiculed - only the conflict that occupies and preoccupies us."

LM is right about one thing, it is a matter of opinions at this point.  No one is wrong for disliking the film just as no one is wrong for loving it.  I absolutely loathe Clerks 2 since I thought it was an annoying bit of cliched angst using tired jokes and wrapped in the cloak of indie hipness, but i also understand that many folks around here loved it.  does that make either side any less intelligent or cool?  no. just means i won't be invited to movie night by many of you.   icon_biggrin

I just watched it tonight with my folks.  Horrible, horrible movie.  I want nothing more than to retrieve those 150 utterly wasted minutes of my life.  The main actor did an exceptional job and the cinematography was nice, I'll give the movie that, but everything else was complete crap. 

Music?  There's ominous strings scattered throughout to no purpose.  There's no suspense, no danger, no scenes of terrible acts to warrant it.  Pacing?  What pacing?  Listening to Ben Stein read the dictionary would be a 90 minute action thriller compared to this.  Plot?  The plot was about as exciting as a narration of a day at work.

If the movie had been condensed into a 60 minute format, it may have risen to mediocrity maybe even been slightly interesting.  As it is, it's a character study that only spends a small fraction of the time actually developing the characters in a meaningful way.  Eventually the main character becomes as crazy as the director and writers (perhaps this was an autobiographical piece of sorts?).  This is the type of artsy, cliquey movie that the critics will rave about because it makes them look like they know what they're talking about and like they have powers of artistic analysis ordinary people are incapable of.

scuba, i've gamed with you at octocon and i and all my friends think you're a great guy (even though lawboy swooped in and stole your thunder towards the end of the roborally game) ...but the next time i see you, i'm gonna punch you in the forehead so hard that you're gonna forget who you are for 15 minutes.   Tongue

there will be blood is an instant american classic.  i place it almost on the same level as Citizen Kane in its depth and vision (although nothing will ever overtake Kane in the pantheon of great movies.  the number of cinematic innovations contained in that film still boggle the mind).

The ONLY complaint I have about Nolan's take on the Batman franchise is his use of vehicles.  The complex psychological struggles Bruce Wayne deals with both in and out of costume tends to lose some of its gravity when he gets on that goofy bike in the commercials.  Personally, I would have preferred he placed the batmobile, batbike, batboat, batjet and the batsedgeway more in the background than he already has.

However, if that's my ONLY complaint about Nolan's direction...well, that should tell you how much of a genius I think he is.   icon_wink

I'm really looking forward to this one.  Ledger sounds like he's captured the Joker I've always wanted to see onscreen.

I don't see what the problem is with the vehicles.  He's super-fucking-rich, he has all of the other toys and suit, so shouldn't he have a badass vehicle to get across town in?

i just find the vehicles to be a bit..well..overly unrealistic in a film that tries to ground itself in at least a modicum of reality.  it's a very, very minor complaint and i could be proven horribly wrong after i see the film.  however, that dang "batbike" in the commercials just makes me chuckle every time i see it. 

during the period i read batman comics, the vehicles were (in my memory) much less prominent.  i honestly think that it wasn't until burton's first batman that the cars/bikes/boats/etc. became almost supporting characters.  (edit:  i should revise that and bring up the 60's batman with adam west as the batmobile was huge during that show's run)

again, this is JUST an opinion.  and one that could easily be washed away in the sheer awesomeness of dark knight.   icon_biggrin

About 4 years ago some jackass stole my car.  I eventually got the car back (and then traded it in) but they'd cleared out the trunk...the trunk in which I'd placed my beloved Roborally games after a night of gaming with friends. 

Flash forward to this year's Origins.  I'm perusing a dealer's booth and I see these 1st edition copies going for 150 to 200 dollars a pop.   eek

Wanted, as I've stated from post 1, is an action film on par with Shoot 'Em Up.  Both are good at what they do:  giving the audience over the top action.  Neither aspire to anything higher.  if you believe Wanted was trying to do so, then I feel you misunderstood the intention of the film. 

Yeah, you are misunderstanding me if you think that I expected Wanted to be anything other than an over the top action film... I just don't think it was good at it.  Shoot 'Em Up succeeds where Wanted fails because Shoot 'Em Up is comfortable being an over the top action flick and in fact revels in it, while Wanted wants to have story and depth that it just can't maintain... or even establish.

and those opinions are fine.  i just disagree with them.  i thought Shoot 'Em Up and Wanted succeeded and I felt that both were "comfortable" with what they were.  As I noted earlier, at no time did i feel that i was being preached to or that the film aspired to be anything more than an action film.  you felt that it did, although i don't see how you can justify that feeling without getting hold of the writer or director and having him post in this thread that that was his intent.  However, the opposite holds true for my side of the discussion as well.  therefore all we can do is discuss this issue using opinions as our only source of proof.  unless "having a feeling" has become admissible in most courts of law?  in that case, i feel OJ was guilty and demand a retrial!

Not an experience i had personally, but one that Mr. Fed posted about years ago on OO.  It was a link to a discussion thread on an EQ2 forum concerning someone who'd had "cyber sex" with another character in his virtual dwelling in the game...without noticing that he'd left the room open to everyone and that a stealthed rogue character snuck in and had taken many, many screenshots of the whole incident.  The chat dialog was also on display in the thread.  

I remember laughing my ass off for about 2 days over that one.  Reading through the guy's protestations about what REALLY happened was comedy gold.   icon_lol

edit:  wow, still has the story .
