Apparently Christian Bale showed up to visit the victims of the Aurora shooting in the hospital and also to visit the memorial to the victims. With no entourage or interviews or anything.

Color me impressed.

Oscar Noms came out and I've seen people be really upset that The Dark Knight did not get nominated for Best Picture or Best Director.

I might be in the minority, but I was rather indifferent to TDK: it was a good enough movie but I prefer Batman Begins, or, of this year's superhero movies, Iron Man (so delish!), much more to the quasi-artsy but ultimately empty dourness of TDK. The more I thought about that movie, the less I liked it. It wouldn't make my Top 10 of 2008 in...ever, so I am actually quite happy that it didn't get nommed despite making a gajillion bucks.

Yay Oscar!

This article, which ranks Batmans from least fave to most (and has subcategories of reasons) is not only awesome, but a total hoot.

My favorite bit is under category 'Homoerotic Context', for Bale's Batman:
Only in the sense that we spent this movie wondering if BatBale liked us. You know, as more than friends.


ROFL.

On a less hilarious note, one brief spoilery thought about The Dark Knight.

Thought here )

Side note to anything: is it possible to be hotter than Christian Bale? I don't think so.

Finally saw The Dark Knight tonight.

Oh wow.

WOW.

I am sort of non-verbal right now. It was excellent, even if it was one of the bleakest movies I've seen.

Heath Ledger as the Joker was amazing. Amazing. Now I see what all the fuss was about. The movie got a little more fun, a little better and involving, when he came on screen. You couldn't help but laugh at what he was doing, even if it was horrible (and I love that this version of the Joker is perfectly sane, just with goals very off the radar for a normal person).

Oh, and oh, Bruce. Seriously, the way this new reimagining is going, with making worse and worse things happen to him, I think they might run out of the parade of horribles to do to him, soon. Oddly, I think a part of him always craves the punishment though: he has issues and guilt complex a mile wide (the one thing Rachel got right is not wanting to be in a relationship where you are the other party's sole reason for normalcy. That would be hard to put up with. At least not without loving the guy a lot more than she did).

My favorite character in the movie was actually neither Batman nor Joker, but Harvey Dent. He wasn't a superhero, or a chaotic terrorist, he was just a very good, very human person who broke under some incredibly horrific things done to him and his loved ones. I don't know, I rooted for him and really felt for him and he just made me think of old-time mob proescutors. You had to be a little crazy to take this job, knowing the life expectancy, and then of course the catalogue of horrors pushed him over the edge.

Rachel? Ugh. I used to think it was Katie Holmes' nonacting that made her so irritating, but Maggie G is a much better actress, so I am forced to conclude Nolan just can't write women. Ther biggest suspension of disbelief for me wasn't Batman's powers or Joker's abilities, it was that such complex and interesting men like Bruce and Harvey both thought the sun rose and set on Rachel Dawes.

Oh, and Commissioner Gordon? LOVE.

With all this, I still like Batman Begins better. Don't know why (TDK was excellent) but I do.

Our trailers were wonderful: Blindness, The Watchmen, the Bond movie, Body of Lies (I think that's the name), the Coen Brothers movie, etc. Yay.

Can you link me to your TDK write-ups? Please?

Still reading Eragon. It's quite enjoyable even if it does have a heavy Tolkien hangover and the sentence structure is ocassionally too simple. Still oodles better than Terry Goodkind, trying to read whom literally gave me a headache.

Also, when I was in Blockbuster's yesterday, returning the hilarious "Team America: World Police" (puppet sex, people!), I saw that they had one of the Rurouni Kenshin movies and checked it out (don't worry [livejournal.com profile] katranna not the prequel ones. I am a woman of my word and will watch those with you :) This was called "Requiem for somebody or other"). Watched it yesterday with husband.

Verdict: It's nice enough that if I didn't have anything to do on an evening and it was playing I could watch and enjoy, but it's not like it grabbed me. And it was in another Universe (for me) compared to Howl's. With this one I just thought "I can't get too involved, because it's a cartoon," (which is my traditional animation reaction and which is why I was so surprised by my reaction to Howl's). I really think Howl's really is a one-off for me, because of such amazing gorgeousness of artwork (and a bit because it's a take-off on a fairy tale). But yeah, I am still interested in watching the prequel stuff with [livejournal.com profile] katranna I didn't love it, but I didn't hate it, after all. And yeah, Kenshin IS cartoon-cute. Though his neck must be killing him, having to bear the weight of all that hair.

Also, IMDB, you make me happy: Christian Bale, Michael Caine and Morgan Freeman have signed to star in a second Batman movie, but love interest Katie Holmes has been dropped. Movie bosses are thrilled with the response to Batman Begins - it took $46.9 million in its first weekend at the US box office - and have snapped up the film's stars for a sequel. Bale as Batman was the first to put pen to paper, followed by Caine as butler Alfred and Freeman as Bruce Wayne's business associate Lucius Fox. But Holmes won't reprise her role as district attorney Rachel Dawes - reportedly because Warner Bros is angry her engagement to Tom Cruise has stolen media attention away from the movie. A source tells Pagesix.Com, "Everyone is in agreement that the movie's strength is with Christian Bale, Michael Caine and Morgan Freeman." Adding of Holmes, "She won't be in the sequel... the next romantic interest will be a much stronger actress. Warner is happy that people are now focusing on who'll be playing the Joker rather than Katie and Tom." Wooooooooooooooooooo!
