    Riddler gave me school shooter/serial killer vibes at the end. So I guess it worked pretty well lol

    Being completely fair I just don't think this movie is for everyone, it seems a little divisive from what I've seen. I appreciate what it is and that it's not safe in the realm of the superhero genre, but you don't gotta feel bad for not liking it cause being objective there are definitely reasons to not be a fan depending on what you wanted out of it.

    Only person I'll clown on for not liking it is @FiveOh1 cause he's a lil b----.

    I'd love a couple movies dedicated to court of owls, mad hatter could work too or something like that.

    That's what I'm talking about.
    Riddler should be someone who's got you on the edge of your seat. Because he's unpredictable. He's smart. He's a cynic.
    In this movie, I felt like he was just an angry teenager crying out for attention because his high school sweetheart dumped him and got with the football team captain instead.

    I kinda liked him though, it's kinda realistic imo. Some weird teen that's crazy. I think the villains were good. Catwoman also.

    I don't think it's amazing, and it's also kinda forgettable since nothing memorable happened, but I don't see many movies topping this this year. The lack of blood was also a problem imo, people are dying right next to him and the suit still looking brand new.

    Oh yeah, Mad Hatter! I was thinking about that one when I wrote my previous comment about villains.

    I'm not against trying to create a different type of Batman. Not at all. I just think it was poorly done. Cheap.

    I've always thought Bruce Wayne should be a very troubled human being, dark, suffering and struggling. Someone who tries to show he's normal and successful when he's Bruce Wayne but then, the real him comes out when he puts on the mask and he gets violent, because that's when he lets out all of his traumas.

    The only bit I found intense and I liked it was when he was almost dying, Catwoman saved him and then that guy started fighting with her. Then Batman got up and beat the s--- out of that fella. He wouldn't stop. Then he was like "what the f--- am I doing?". That was great.

    Marsh should be the next villain tbh


    I don’t think Batman could defeat a supreme being like whatever it is Marsh identifies as IMHO!!!!

    Yeah I think that's what Batman is also supposed to be, actually a part of this film I liked was that it wasn't the origin story to him becoming Batman in the typical sense of his parents dying it's an origin story in the sense of character growth to figuring out that he should use his persona more.

    Anyways f--- Batman, let's go in the complete opposite direction. they delayed across the spiderverse and I'm f---in livid lmfao

    I understand the story not being super memorable to you but g.d. do I think it's pretty to look at, especially the scene where he's in the hallway and the only lighting is muzzle flashes. *Chef's kiss*

    Go watch it again f---er lmao I watched it on Monday and I was too tired for it. Why the f--- did they drop it on a Monday smh. Watched it again a couple days after and I liked it more.

    I think this, The Northman and Dr Strange are gonna be the best movies this year.

    Sorry but Batman's the only superhero I've ever been interested in.
    He can't throw spider-webs, fly, throw x-rays out of his eyes, etc. He doesn't have a superpower. He relies on his intelligence and his toys.

    Which reminds me, loved that bit when he used his bat suit to glide but he miscalculated the timing to go below the bridge and fell down like an idiot. Because that's what I'm saying. He's just a human who relies on his toys and he can f--- up and get hurt all by himself.

    Knives out was great, I need to watch it again.

    The whole point about spiderman is that he's relatable :emoji_slight_frown:

    Why? Because he's in love with Mary Jane? Or because he's younger than Superman or Batman?.

    Cause he's a broke s-----y goober that's constantly depressed cause he has to juggle his time and he's bad at it so he ruins relationships and s--- like that. I honestly think he's one of the most human superheroes.

    The Dark Knight is the best Batman film I've ever seen.
    He gets beaten up like no other superhero in any movie. Injured really bad. Thrown into a prison. You feel his pain. He feels useless and impotent. Bane even spared his life when he could have killed him right then and there, and he's like "I can't beat this guy..." so he has to work hard on himself. He has to ask for Gordon, Robin and Catwoman's help because he can't do it on his own. He has to hide. I mean, everything about the f---ing movie is great. And even though you know it's a Batman movie and he'll end up winning, you just can't see how he's gonna do it, when you watch it for the first time.

    The movie has a little "Rocky 3" feeling to it that made it amazing, imo.

    Yeah but he doesn't come off as depressed. He's usually actually pretty upbeat and makes lame jokes in the movies, as far as I can remember. Very gayish imo.
    Which reminds me, the last movie of Toby McGuire is comparable to this new Batman. Both so emo. Cringy as f---.
