One of the local critics here in Chicago said this movie is worth the wait.
KillerSE7EN - 7/9/2012, 7:20 AM
is Grif mentally ill or just a very, very lonely and angry human being?
stealthboy - 7/9/2012, 7:22 AM
@grif - oh, so you've seen the movie already? Great! I look forward to your immediate review explaining why you rightfully think the movie is "shit". Thanks in advance!

Haven't heard?

No one cared who Grif was until he demonstrated that he was an ass!

(see what I did there?)

Grif really cracks me up though, real talk.

I could really see Grif sitting around on the couch all day shouting "YOLO," and slamming keystone light. What a boss!
AgentDelta - 7/9/2012, 7:45 AM
And I'm sure Grif will absolutely LOVE the reboot and have nothing bad to say about it when it does come out. >_>

If you are truly educated and want us off your back, just submit a Full review of The Dark Knight Rises when it comes out on why you though the movie was terrible. Otherwise your repetition is as stupid as waving an American Flag in a Taliban Camp. Just what hell is the point? Honestly bro. I can understand hating on something that your truly feel isn't art, but you must see the art first before giving ones opinion bout it. Feel free to further piss of more with your crap excuse your *Shit. Good day.

IM53@ That was Pippa? Didn't recognise her from the front. There's really no beating Federer, btw.
I've figured out the one important thing about Bane that you all ned to know. It came to me, last night.
FACT 1- Bane is bald.
FACT 2 - Young Talia is bald.
I've been thinking this would be what Nolan was going to do, just after Bane was announced to be the villian and it was supposed to "come full circle" with Batman Begins. But now I'm quite certain it's the case. Nolan is going to make Bane and Talia siblings.
Bane is Ra's Al Ghul's son.
This is why he's "punishing" Batman and finishing his father's work and working with the League of Shadows. Everything falls into place. "Your punishment must be more severe", he says. It would be either a much longer film or a more badly structure film if Bane's story and origins were entirely different from Talia's and Catwoman's.
This is also why I still think that Selina is Talia.

Reinvention Bane sucks. Julie newmar selina-woman sucks.
Why did nolan forsake us?

nowtheresaBATman - 7/9/2012, 1:23 PM
@FusionAcara Unclejimmy has forsaken his own imagination.

@IM53 Pippa M. has 1 ASSet. The rest is subpar.

@Greengo Is that Grif's baby picture?
Ichaos - 7/9/2012, 2:54 PM
I honestly think Grif should have his own movie review show with that grumpy torn up bear as the reviewer. That would be awsome. :)

"Well Grif the bear, what did you think about the new Batman movie"

"Bloody Sh#%t Movie, Sh@#$ sound, sh$% plot"

ISleepNow - 7/9/2012, 2:59 PM
I see their doing the prologue in that clip, (RE-mixing no doubt)
Ichaos - 7/9/2012, 3:00 PM
It would be a combination of Siskel and Ebert with Mongrels
Ichaos - 7/9/2012, 3:05 PM
I would like to see them do a remix/redub of the last Batman movie. They just went nuts with the reverb.

Its important I think for heroes to have their voices disguised as well especially if their alter egos are high profile. They been doing that on screen all the way back to those old Superman Shorts but apparently took a break in the 50s and 60s. George Reeves was great and Adam west was entertaining in the Campy batman depiction but their voices are so distinctive and unchanged you have to wonder why they had any kind of disguise. You could guess their identities blindfolded. Especially Adam West.

But Demon I need a cough drop Batman was just too far and a lot of times makes it hard to take seriously.
