Not really...I usually have "Wait and see" type attitude with most of the movies that I'm interested in...but sometimes if overall the movie reviews are positive and I see one bad or semi-bad...I tend to get a bit scared.

The scene where Keanu first discovers just how....vampiric....Oldman is.....with the three woman and the baby.....yeesh.
Oldman as Bram Stoker's Dracula was great. You should see this. The only negative about it, as NSW said, is that Keanu was in it. I thought his performance was weak at best.

When there is a movie you are interested in, should not your attitude just be "see" instead of "wait and see"? Odd.

It depends on how bad I want to actually see the movie. Most of the time I'm not interested and the movies I am interested in I either wait until I get enough money or it gets to one of the cheaper theaters or on DVD.

Thus the "wait and see" attitude. (It has nothing to do with reviews most of the time because I usually don't read the reviews)

Agreed. Heath stole the show. Just makes me even sadder that we lost someone so talented and dedicated. Bale was awesome and Oldman was solid. Gyllenhaul pissed me off. But I spose she was better than Katie Holmes.

His performance was great, and when he came on screen the crowd came to life, but I feel that he simply took fantastic material and did a good job with it, which isn't so much a complaint as it is a comment. For the record, Nicholson is still my favorite Joker.
I got chills. He freaked me out. I couldn't get him out of my head. IMO, he blew Nicholson out of the water. And seeing him in Brokeback, then this role just astonishes me. He was so immersed in the roles that it's almost impossible to link the two.

I've seen it twice and I'd see it again... and agian ... I'm usually hard to please, but this movie just rocked my fucking socks off. I'm giving it a 9.

I don't even know what to say about the suggestion that Nicholson was better. Not in terms of faithfulness to the character, not in terms of acting, not in terms of anything.

So wrong.

I have to agree with you here. When we left the theatre, one of my friends said that at the end of the movie she had to sit there and think about whether the Hong Kong scenes were actually IN this movie or if she was remembering them from somewhere else, because they didn't really fit in seamlessly.

I bought it because it goes into the whole "going after the mob's money sources" storyline, but it wasn't the most important thing. It was a fun action set piece though.

Oh fuck no:

She's fine, but yeah, don't want her as Selina Kyle/Catwoman at all.

I think the series has done just fine without Catwoman. She was absent in all three of the best Batman films.

Oh, man, disagree. For me, the best of the Burton Batmans features Catwoman. Not saying that I do or do not want Catwoman back, but, I really really enjoy Batman Returns.

Michelle Pfeiffer certainly made the part more appealing.

I'm neither here nor there on Batman Returns. The Penguin is one of the weaker Batman villains, and the film just doesn't feel right to me.
