Should have been equalled by Burton's Batman (which remarkably didn't have Johnny Depp or Helena Bonham Carter in it to ruin it like all his recent films) had the Academy acknowledged Keaton's Oscar worthy portrayals of Bill Blazejowski and Johnny Dangerously.

(Of course I still can't understand how Basinger won so these things tend to even themselves out)

I love Batman in general, and loved the first two movies, but there's something about everything that's been released about this one that continually disappoints me. Maybe the terrible CGI, maybe the crappy costumes, maybe the silly looking vehicles, maybe something else. I hope for the best, but am fairly nervous it'll bum me out.

Right, but still Basinger won AFTER appearing in Batman.

Retroactive don't count!

In my mind it doesn't count either way for Basinger.

The way Hathaway says 'I'm adaptable' is cringe-worthy. She's like the cute mousey girl trying way too hard to be sexy.

this logic confuses me.

I'm thinking he meant he loved the first 2 Nolan films, not Burton's efforts.

Usually CG is still being worked on during the trailers. I wouldn't worry too much about that. It's hard to say about the rest though. I kinda feel the same way. And Bane is hard to get a handle on at the moment; I can't tell if he's going to be awesome or crappy

The Dark Knight already did though? Of course this has 4 that have already won going into it's release, whereas TDK had two go on to win after its release including Ledger for the film itself.

Edit: now I've seen your definitive stance on retroactivity. Withdrawn.

This. Pfeiffer and DeVito were awesome. Also, whenever I hear someone refer to champagne as "Bubbly", all I can think of is the Penguin celebrating their successful trashing of the Batmobile and offering her a "Touch of the Bubbly?"

Returns is easily the best Batman film. Aside from maybe the 60s one or Phantasm.
