That's amateur Batman for you.. guy's still learning the ropes,


So was he in Batman Begins. It was pulled off beautifully. You could see that he was enough of a ninja to be Batman, and yet inexperienced enough to get his a*s handed to him on occasion when faced with a non-normal foe. Then he learned from his mistakes. 

If you need more than two years “work-ex” to know not to get close to a bomb that’s going to explode in your face, you’re not an amateur. You’re fkn stupid.

I found it when i was browsing through IMDB but you really cant tell it was her. 
 

I feel this works good enough for a standalone movie. Making it a franchise is a  dumb move. 

 

I actually like that they're making a prequel, but mainly because it's being directed by the same guy.

There's a dearth of good slashers and I really wouldn't mind getting another one. Also, the time period it's set in (1919 apparently) should keep things a little fresh.

NGL, that's a pretty sweet title, with the X made of classic headlamps. 

 

So they're saying we need to fasTEN our seatbelts??

Bruce Wayne in ‘this’ movie is channelling his rage on to the thugs of Gotham with a misplaced sense of justice. That much is evident with the way he beats them up and approaches combat. So yes, he is brash and irresponsible. Makes him look more human and way over his head. That’s why i said he is an amateur. The arc of getting from here to the The Dark Knight is what interests me which I hope will happen over couple more movies instead of becoming a legend in span of one movie. At least this was my takeaway from this Batman.
 

You can always compare with Batman of previous movies and comics and find things you like and dislike in relation to your favourites. But every creator has their own interpretation and portrayal of Batman and I looked at it separately from the others. Having said that every criticism is valid and interesting because it fuels discussion and opens up to other point of views.

Finally saw Matt Reeves The Batman

 

Didn't like it at all... thank god I didn't spend my money on the movie tickets... and some of the choices were so awful in representation of the Batman. God!!

This I can agree with. A prequel with the origin story of the old couple can be interesting.

Saw kgf: 2 in theaters finally, first movie in theater after a long break of 2 years. I don't know if the theater's audio had some issue, but the movie was played at full volume, way too loud.   Apart from that, it's quite good, and kept me engaged until the end.  The movie picks right where the first one ended, and goes at breakneck pace.  The style of narration is non linear with events from multiple places/timelines playing out together in parallel to create short bursts of euphoric whistle-worthy scenes. It's a larger than life spectacle movie and doesn't pretend otherwise for a minute.  Overall, it's bigger and more badass compared to the first movie, and Yash really rocks throughout the movie with his amazing screen presence.

Thats what we want from our movies.

 

Hindi films used to be like that only and thats why we love them. 

 

This reality and grounded sh*t, no one wants to see this BS. Its all because of this emergence of Netflix and OTT which will soon fade away. 

 

Watching a movie should be fun. We want larger than life stuff not this OTT grounded sh*t. 

 

RRR is 3 hours and still mega hit. That conviction it had throughout, people are ready to watch them long movies if done well.

 

Still the biggest hits are the Sooryavanshis and big AAA Marvel flicks not grounded depressing sh*t.

Bollywood is screwed big time with the emergence of regional dub films. Earlier these were hits only on tv but now even in cinemas. Tbh they bought this upon themselves, half of the films are south film remakes, other half is either biopic on somebody (earlier it was gangsters, now it's some sports guy) or some small town story (mostly set in North starring ayushman) which all look the same.

 

The Worst offender are the anthology films on OTT, every single one has a similar theme. One story on infidelity, one related to caste/religion, one on sexual awakening/lgbtq, rich poor, villagers are savages etc etc. It's like all their content is targeted towards the upper middle class and then they wonder why sub numbers are not growing in India.
