Heck, I only finally got to see Episode III tonight.

At least my wife said "Hey, that was pretty good. Now I need to see the others to know what I've been missing".

I see the Star Wars Trilogy in Widescreen DVD with THX in our future. :D

That was a pretty damn good movie. Still not sure if it was better than the original Tim Burton Batman movies, but good enough that I'm undecided. Those other Batman movies were just complete crap.

My only complaint is that Christian Bale has a horrible "Batman voice". :roll:

Outstanding movie! Worth every dollar I paid! With a bottomless tub of corn with extra butter and a limitless coke. Damn life is good isn't it! =D>

Assuming you mean the promotions some theaters have where if you buy a large coke, they will refill it as much as you want...it's kind of a bad idea in a sense, because:

A. The more you drink, the higher chances you'll have to go to the bathroom during the movie.
B. In order to get the refill, you need to miss part of the movie.

Being as I hate all the various soda's/pop's/etc. I just get a bottled water to refresh me from the popcorn. :P

Wrong!

You get it filled before the movie, and then re-filled on the way out after the movie is over :D

Movie was quite good. Better than Buttman and Rub-In.. but still, I didn't like the depiction of Gotham City. Just Chicago (I think??) with the addition of the Wayne TOwer and the monorail. They *could* have put some more effort into it..

Michael Keaton, baby, woohoo! Now he is Batman!

........ Then again, he was also Beetlejuice. But that just proves he is multi-talented!

I used to watch that a lot as a kid. Entertaining.. but I like the darker version of Batman better.

That's Family Guy, not Simpsons.... but yes, he appears on there as well, and is quite the enjoyable charactor too! :D

Wife gave it to me for our first anniversary Sunday. :D (The movie, not the plasma screen). I am a happy camper.

I think the most important part of the Batman movies isn't being able to play Batman, but being able to play Bruce Wayne.
Anyone can put on the rubber mask and the suit, and be bulked up by Hollywood techniques. It takes real character to develop the Bruce Wayne underneath. That was why I really liked Michael Keaton. Unlike others (coughValKilmercough) Keaton was the best Bruce Wayne of all the modern Batman movies (haven't seen Christian Bale yet, though I'm skeptical after a few of his other roles). Being a good Bruce Wayne makes it possible to be a good Batman. The reverse isn't true.
