Heath Ledger's acting in the interrogation scenes is as perfect as anything I've seen in film.

I don't know...I was put off by Bale as Wayne, on the other hand, I think it was handled better than any Wayne before. In that, someone as angsty as Wayne is, should not be quite the playboy he's always made out to be in pretty much any other batman installment
Michael Keaton's Bruce Wayne is probably my favorite, but Bale has a great balance as Bruce and Bats. Plus, I'd believe him being a fucking ninja master, Keaton... not so much. He would've been a terrific Joker though.

The only issue I had with the Bat-pod was the driving up a wall, doing a 180 and coming back down again. I'm not entirely convinced that it's physically possible.

The interrogation scene is one of the best scenes in recent cinema history. Period.

Tommy Lee Jones was so fucking godawful in Forever... he and Jim Carrey just take turns chewing scenery until it turns to shit, I'm sorry. It used to be my favorite Batman film when I was about 5 or 6, but I grew out of that. If I want campy Batman, I'll stick with the '60s movie and series, not the shit Schumacher films.
That's completely fair. To be honest I wasn't so upset with the creative liberties with the creation of story, so much as the way they kept playing up this white knight/dark knight thing til it got so sappy at the end I was slightly disgusted. I didn't like Two-Face ending up that way I suppose.

As for Forever Eh, I know it's not popular. That's what I'm good for . I don't think anything can be as campy as 60s Batman, and I think we can both agree that nothing can be as bad as Batman & Robin? But since I was only 10 when that came out, in my mind TLJ has always = Two-Face. Does that make sense?

Don't know to be exact....they've been putting out massive warnings all day on the radio telling people there to not go on the beach, hunker down, and that the roads are closed.....pretty extreme stuff!

Maybe it proves there is no god, but there is Satan?

I remember reading that there's a 3 hour cut of TDK around... I'm just glad we got something as complete as the released version. I hope the extra half hour fleshes out some of the rougher edges of the film.

His transition didn't really bother me, since it was slowly brewing since the beginning of the film. The guy's self-righteous and a believer in "justice" and the moral way... all while manipulating chance with a two-headed coin. He's a paradoxical character to begin with, Rachel's death and his scarring pushed him mentally over the edge and manifested itself physically. I absolutely loved how he was the tragic character of the film, along with Batman.
