This movie gets 15 out of 10 stars. And yes, I know my math well.
Christian Bale's Batman was good, but was completely overshadowed by Aaron Eckhart's Harvey Dent, Gary Oldman's Commission Gordon, and of course Ledger's The Joker.
At the rate of this kind of script writing and directing, Christopher Nolan, who's been my favorite director (next to David Fincher), will in due time replace Spielberg as the national household name. See The Prestige. See Insomnia. See Memento, which is what really put him on the map.
The film went on a lot longer than I thought it would, but it was still the best thing this year so far. I wouldn't even bother watching other comic book movies. For every one that comes out, I might as well just go watch this one over again.
Now, here's the thing: I was wondering if Batman's partner's sequel will top his, and I began to look for a picture of him until I stumbled upon this rumored film:
This was supposed to be filmed by Wolfgang Peterson (Troy, The Perfect Storm) a long time ago, but the project was cancelled. A theory says this is the left over poster from the project, but both Brandon Routh and Christian Bale were cast in their respective parts after the project was cancelled. So perhaps it's been renewed. Or maybe someone online photoshopped this. Your thoughts, or inside info if you have it.
