    More Thoughts on Batman Begins

    One of the things that I especially enjoyed about Batman Begins was its focus on Bruce Wayne/Batman. The Burton movies were mainly explorations into the villains. As some have appropriately...

    I get a real kick out of your idiocy, Johann.

    But, on to more relevant matters, some of you might enjoy this imaginary dialogue between the Dark Knight and Darth Vader.

    Agreed.

    Batman Begins is great blockbuster cinema. The cast plays the parts to perfection, given a great script, and the technical elements are exemplary. I really enjoyed my two hours in the...
