Watched Dark Knight Rises for the first time since the theater. Much better movie second time around, imo

Late night Netflix browsing, watched Escape from LA. Cheesy? Sure. Still a great movie.

One aspect I liked about Keaton is that his Batman was pretty much even keeled and determined as opposed to Christian Bale who tried to be a force of nature what with that annoying gravelly voice and being all "I'm the Goddamned Batman!" in his persona. I also found that Bale was too busy being super serious with no room for other emotions. Yes, Keaton's Batman was pretty serious but I always got the feeling that he'd eventually lighten up at some point. His Batman looked like a guy who'd eventually have a Robin, Bale does not.
Exactly. Batman Returns is my favorite Batman film, if only for little moments like turning the Batmobile around to roast the fire breathing clown at the start of the film. Even with the new "trilogy" of Bale films, which I do like, Keaton is still a solid Batman.

Re: What movies have you seen recently?

I was able to watch a couple of movies the other day via the 'Flix and other.

The Class of '92(Sports Doc on Manchester United, ala 30 for 30) and Prince Avalanche(Paul Rudd movie)

I actually did a video blog for this. It would mean a lot if you all took a peek at it and critique it.

That would be swell.

Blog Review please be kind

Die Hard - I consider this a Christmas movie much to my girlfriend's dismay. Anyway, I always forget how much of a comedy a lot of the dialogue actually is.

"Hope that's not a hostage."

Snitch with Dwayne Johnson, Susan Sarandon, Barry Pepper (one of my favorite actors), Jon Bernthal (Shane from TWD), and Benjamin Bratt.

Typical action movie but one of The Rocks movies that I thought was above average. Strong cast but Jon Bernthal seemed to still be in The Walking Dead mode. LOL!

Re: What movies have you seen recently?

Fruitvale Station - A movie about the BART shooting in Oakland which made headlines a few years back. Its mainly about the last days of Oscar Grant and the incident at the station.

I didnt expect much from a first time director but I was wrong. The director has a good sense of what the scene is like in Oakland. The actors talk and act Oakland. I remember the main character who plays Oscar Grant as that Wallace kid from HBO's The Wire and Chronicles.

After watching this I have nothing but sympathy for Grant and his family. Fruitcake Station isn't for everyone but personally I really enjoyed it. 8/10.

Re: What movies have you seen recently?

Watched a couple movies, not one to write up a lengthy post on each.....

Red 2 - I enjoyed the first one, didnt care for the second one nearly as much and not even sure why but just didnt appeal to me nearly as much as the first one did.

2 Guns - Enjoyed this movie quite a bit, had some solid action and Mark Wahlberg had some good lines throughout the movie that made me laugh.

The Family - Didnt see a lot on this but was intrigued since it had De Niro and Pfeiffer in it and I really liked it, thought the story telling was solid, thought any time they tried to interject comedy it was done well and the payoff at the end was pretty solid.

Tonight is Don Jon then The Wolverine and Man of Steel to come.
