Uh, wow. I thought you were joking with that, but apparently that's the "official" boxart.

Every movie that i've seen with Jolie in it is FUCKING AWFUL!!

Wanted was okay. Don't understand why people hate on Jolie so much.

Despite the really bad interpretations in the movies, there are plenty of comic books that make good use of her.

I actually thought Batman Returns had a pretty good Catwoman. But that character belongs in a Burton movie and would definately not fit in Nolan's films.

I know she had a bad movie a few years ago, but if the Hulk could get over that, surely Catwoman can too?

Plenty of people liked Hulk (I'm one of them), though I realize why so many people didn't like it. Catwoman was just embarrassing to watch.

If anything, you should bring up Batman and Robin...just to show the irony of this whole situation. :P

omgz, this could be the start of a beautiful...tolerance.

Well you guys know I've been wanting to join you on THF for a while now...all comes down to when you guys run though. About 10k TNL to 75 and I'm going to dedicate myself to meriting for a while after I hit 75.

And Fei, I doubt you have to buy a new copy of the game to start playing again if all you did was simply cancel your content IDs.

Kind of funny how much attention and detail the Koreans are always giving to the characters' boobs.

If this is what the game looks like in real time I might actually try it out for laughs. I'm a bit disappointed how vacuous and boring the character faces look though.

The art looks like it's from the Magna Carta guy...love his art. =P

How is overrated not intended to be a negative thing? Overrated means to rate or appraise too highly. TOO HIGHLY.
My issue with the term is that there is ALWAYS someone that comes in to almost every thread and says that whatever the people are talking about is overrated.

Then your problem is just generally with people who look like they're just doing it for the sake of going against the majority...honestly I don't think the majority of the people on this site overrated The Dark Knight- but some of the praise it's getting is pretty ridiculous. Nevertheless, I love the film, probably just as much as most of the people around here.

There are plenty of places to take both Bruce Wayne and Batman.
Bane could break his back, thus revealing to the world who he really is. Riddler is always an option. Catwoman of course. Talia al Ghul would of course be an interesting villain. Trying to get back at Batman for her father. And there is always Ra's al Ghul coming back. You mentioned Two Face.

With the history that Batman has there are a LOT of options for new movies.

Well I actually didn't mean Batman didn't have a wealth of stories to draw from (With the amount of stories he has they could easily make movies until the day I die), but rather what they can do with the established character in the movie continuity itself. Both Batman Begins and The Dark Knight had very strong central themes and a direction Bruce Wayne's character could advance. The Dark Knight has established that his job as Batman is now a lifelong job...a very bittersweet ending (Mostly bitter), but everything that happens from this point on is going to be "fight next villain". I know there's more to it than that, but I think you know what I mean.

I guess my problem isn't whether or not they will make another movie (Because they're going to until they stop bringing in cash, which is probably never if they keep the tone dark), but whether any movies from now on are going to have the kind of strong development for the character Bruce Wayne that can carry an entire film.

Sephiroth...bad fanfiction or something :P

Funny. A few weeks ago I was talking with Dios and some other people on Skype and Dios told a bad fanfiction about Sephiroth...though I'm sure the majority of you that know him probably have heard it years ago.

There's nothing universally considered overrated.

Daggerstrike's post can be overly simplified into basically "everyone has their own opinions and just because everyone chose to like something doesn't mean it's overrated." So by saying that I can just say that I think it's overrated and just because everyone else thinks its not doesn't make it so that it's not...it's just an endless argument.

And just remember kids, overrated does NOT mean bad.

That's pretty much the point I always try to make. I don't understand such knee-jerk reactions to calling something overrated.

As for all this discussion of the next films and whether or not
Two Face is actually dead

is all purely speculation. Personally I think it should just be left as a duology though- like I said, where else can you take Bruce Wayne's character?

Under that assumption, nothing that ever existed can be considered overrated.

If he doesn't like unrealistic villains that crosses off about 90% of them. The only ones I can think of are The Riddler, The Mad Hatter, Catwoman, and Talia Al Ghul (Who I doubt can appear since Ra's Al Ghul is dead and all).

I really don't know where they can take the story from here. It's going to be hard to top this one.
1931  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / The Dark Knight on: July 22, 2008, 11:40:23 PM
Depends on how much you got into the hype I guess. Some of the hype was, and still is, ridiculous. If you were just expecting it to satisfy the Batman fans than it definately far exceeded that.

I realize there's a moral, but it felt like the moral was buried when pretty much

evil was winning the majority of the time

That's not really a complaint, mind you, just that that's why I think parents complaing about it.


As a note, when I say "overrated", I mean just that- overrated. This is still easily the best film I've seen this year, and any complaints I might have with it are probably just nitpicking at this point.

Everyday I ask myself why guys like breasts so much...

Probably because it symbolizes fertility in most mammals.

In case none of you want to read that page, I'm going to quote the best thing from that page:

Other sentient species retained strong breastfeeding traditions as well: female Wookiees had six breasts, which they used to nurse their large litters of cubs.

female Wookiees had six breasts, which they used to nurse their large litters of cubs.

female Wookiees had six breasts

female Wookiees had six breasts

female Wookiees had six breasts

You may now start picturing Chewbacca doing his famous roar while six tiny wookies (Or if Lucas was directing, six of Chewbacca himself) nurse off of him.

The Dark Knight is overrated.

Of course, that's not really saying much considering what I've heard ("Best movie in the past 5/10 years", etc), I just find it incredibly silly anybody would say it not only lived up to the hype, but surpassed it. Movies never live up to their hype, and really the only way The Dark Knight could've done it is if it caused the second coming or something.

Nevertheless I loved the movie. The thing about

Harvey Dent's incredibly quick and unbelievable descent into Two-Face is only believable when you think about it, but I found him to be just as flawed to the movie as Venom was to Spiderman 3. Eddie Brock was developed a decent amount, and then Venom just appeared near the end of the movie to wreak some havoc.

I actually think both Two-Face and Venom would not be able to carry a movie on their own, so I don't mind the decision to kill them at the end of their respective movies, but it would've been nice to have the actual villain appear in the middle of the movie, or at least have the buildup to what drives these characters to do what they do. At least with Eddie Brock we know why he hates Spiderman...with Harvey Dent he just seemed to completely lose it and blame stuff on other people when everything he had done before that had suggested he isn't the type of person to do so.

Batman: The Animated series and most of the comic books are quite dark.

I don't think it's the dark story that parents are complaining about, it's that the film has no real moral and has a bunch of hateful things happening simply to develop the characters...am I the only one who thinks that being "dark" is way too easy? Kill a character there, torture another one there...ultimately it adds up to Bruce Wayne realizing he's cursed to be Batman the rest of his life. But I wouldn't see any parents complaining about the story in Mask of the Phantasm, which was pretty dark, but was still kid-friendly because it wasn't needlessly hateful.

Also, don't hate on the campy Batman. Those are absolute comedy gold. :P

For what it is, Avatar is pretty good. They choreograph stuff around actual martial arts styles and you can really tell the people working on it are trying their best to make a good show.

Overall I think it's okay, but its certainly one of the better cartoons out of the crap that gets made in American animation these days.
1935  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / The end of Avatar on: July 22, 2008, 01:35:06 AM
I haven't watched any of Fire Season yet, but I'm glad to hear that they ended it when they felt they should instead of extending it endlessly. That's one thing that's not inspired by anime!
