Swiftsword777: Well I see it's easy to piss you off?
TheBigBoss917 - 6/4/2012, 3:40 PM
Hell yeah, always wanted to watch Begins in theaters.
Mendenhall12 - 6/4/2012, 3:43 PM
Regal Cinemas is also having one.
Coloso - 6/4/2012, 3:58 PM
@Maximus101 tdkr=good movie for sure, but movie of the year I thinks not. Theres a little film currently playing that has critical and box office success with all kinds of records broken and still being broken ;)
batfrog11 - 6/4/2012, 4:14 PM
I wonder if the time could change slightly though? Nolan did say it was "almost done" last night, but sure they're just finishing cgi, etc., but sure some final edits could happen...
darkbeefstakes - 6/4/2012, 4:14 PM
@ coloso
The Dark Knight was a better movie than Avengers. Avengers was fun, but hardly memorable. Aside from a few scenes with hulk and some funny jokes. Other than that the entire final battle felt like a slightly enhance version of transformers, loci was a poor excuse for a challenging villain, the action scenes were mostly entirely random explosions with a few standout moments. The dialgue was good, but mostly cliches (dark knight had its fair share, but not as many), and there was nothing radically different from other action movies (aside from having a bunch of super heros, which is kind of like expendables, just with better characters and jokes)
GiantNerd0720 - 6/4/2012, 4:15 PM
@coloso Don't mind him, he preaches his movie of the year nonsense in literally every post.
darkbeefstakes - 6/4/2012, 4:15 PM
sorry for trolling, i couldnt help it
GiantNerd0720 - 6/4/2012, 4:17 PM
@darkbeefinjection The Avengers wasn't memorable? ....Hahahahaha....good stuff sir, good stuff.
GiantNerd0720 - 6/4/2012, 4:20 PM
And Loki was a split second away from killing Thor. I'd say that's more threatening than getting your ass handed to you by the joker and a couple dogs.
darkbeefstakes - 6/4/2012, 4:23 PM
Thor cant die, half of those heroes can't die, and loki couldnt do anything about that. There was no threat
GiantNerd0720 - 6/4/2012, 4:26 PM
Well in comic books Thor would've easily survived that. I'm not so sure about the movie universe. Loki even says the humans think us immortal before he drops him.
GiantNerd0720 - 6/4/2012, 4:27 PM
And in that case only 2/6 couldn't die. Hulk and Thor.
darkbeefstakes - 6/4/2012, 4:32 PM
I liked the movie im just saying i never ws scared of loki, or for the life of any of the characters i cared about (the superhero ones). Even Coulsen's death had very little emotion. Rachel death had a lot more impact on the story in the dark knight, and th eonly reason it lacked emotion is because gylynhaal is ass ugly and has an annoying voice (i was praying theyd kill her off).
GiantNerd0720 - 6/4/2012, 4:33 PM
I mean he's [frick]ing Batman, with preparation he can supposedly beat any one with planning and he didn't want to bring tranquillizers after getting mauled earlier in the movie? ....see I can do it too.
GiantNerd0720 - 6/4/2012, 4:35 PM
Rachel's death had literally no impact for me. She was a selfish twat. I seriously wanted to clap when she died.
MrReese - 6/4/2012, 4:36 PM
"I'd say that's more threatening than getting your ass handed to you by the joker and a couple dogs."

well sure till Hulk treats u like a rag doll & its all over ;) XD
batmanmovie2012 - 6/4/2012, 4:37 PM
@darkbeefstakes I agree about the action scenes they were just to Micheal Bay like for my taste. However Loki was an awesome villain.

@maximus101 Hell ya this is the film of the year maybe even decade
darkbeefstakes - 6/4/2012, 4:39 PM
I dont understand, are you pointing out a plot hole, or pointing out that batman is invincible. Either way your sarcasm doesnt make sense. AT least dark knight was unpredictable. The only unpredicatabel things in avengers was the eye removal thing, hulk loki smash, and hulk punch thor... Dark knight had skyhook, pencil trick, rachel die, entire bank heist scene, how harvey turned into twoface, ferry boat (i didnt like ferry boat scene, but still was not expecting it), joker invading the party and killing mayor and judge. Just about every scene was unexpected and unpredictable.
GiantNerd0720 - 6/4/2012, 4:39 PM
I will agree though, it affected Bruce more than Coulson effected the avengers but that doesn't mean shit to the audience now does it. It's the audience that is supposed to give a shit.
GiantNerd0720 - 6/4/2012, 4:43 PM
All I seen coming with the avengers was them winning. Just like Batman does every movie.

@Mr.Reese That's supposed to happen. Batman getting worked physically by the joker, not so much.
GiantNerd0720 - 6/4/2012, 4:47 PM
Either way, I guess I just prefer less Shakespeare in my super hero movies, and it's looking like most people do as well. I want to be completely entertained because when it comes down to it, that's what you want out of a movie.
darkbeefstakes - 6/4/2012, 4:50 PM
im entertained by things im not expecting. Avengers had some of that (and i will def buy it on bluray when it is released) but dark knight had more.
MrReese - 6/4/2012, 4:58 PM
@GiantNerd0720 Haha =) Can't argue with u there bud.I really didn't like the ending of TDK, it just prolonged the movie.After my third viewing of the movie I would walk out of the theater.LOL
As for the unexpectedness I'd rather expect the unexpected. =)
MrReese - 6/4/2012, 5:02 PM
also Lokis defeat was rather swift.
IgnurRant - 6/4/2012, 5:39 PM
Hahaha and lets not forget that Dr Selvig was more a hero than all of the Avengers combined. He had enough will power to subconciously plant a fail safe to close the portal.

The Avengers caused more harm then good LOL Lets take this intergalactic criminal aboard our spaceship despite the fact he wants to get caught! But lets fight each other instead, as he watches on and chooses not to escape. Fun movie. Silly plot.
GiantNerd0720 - 6/4/2012, 7:27 PM
@Mr.Reese Lol. It just bothers me when people talk down about the avengers because I think it really was a great achievement for CBMs.

@Ignurant I think putting him in a cage meant for hulk was a pretty good plan. They insinuated the staff was making them act that way. Then the explosion near the hulk set him off and shit really got out of hand.
GiantNerd0720 - 6/4/2012, 7:31 PM
@Los420 Dude who was taking about the tiny dagger? Reading comprehension brother, it's a good quality.
GiantNerd0720 - 6/4/2012, 7:39 PM
....alright obviously we're dealing with some true winners here. I'll leave you fellas to it.
turrettsxxx - 6/4/2012, 9:10 PM
Seriously, you guys sound like a bunch of Batman faggots that sit in your make believe Bat-Caves (also known as your rooms) and do nothing but pray to your Bat shrines.

I personally love the Batman films Nolan has come up with, but for God's sake, The Avengers was a HUGE risk taken at a time where CBM's were failing left and right. To go for it, and go for it on that scale....respect what they've done. It's a great movie, plain and simple. Stop trying to make everything 'mine's better than yours' and grow the [frick] up. Enjoy the fact that CBM's exist, and are now stronger than ever thanks to what Marvel and The Avengers have done.
Tonic24k - 6/4/2012, 9:17 PM
Man...just enjoy the [frick]ing movies. If you pick it all apart you're only depriving yourself of the entertainment value. I can understand if it completely sucks -- Ghost Rider status. But c'mon guys. Why are we even comparing The Avengers and the Dark Knight. They are two different movies with two very different tones. Enjoy them both and shut the [frick] up.
thisheart - 6/4/2012, 11:00 PM
GiantNerd0720 - Except Batman actually lost at the end of TDK. That was unexpected. Lost Rachel, his best friend and potential life partner, and lost Harvey, his only hope to retire from being Batman, and lost his reputation. Joker being locked up didn't really hold a candle to those losses.
CrowPirate1 - 6/5/2012, 4:25 AM
@thisheart and lost Heath. sigh. But I know i will be sucked into going to this. I love comic movies. Guys, I friggin Loved the Avengers. Saw it 6 times, and already pre-ordered it on Amazon.

BUT, I saw all comic movies I love a lot of times. I don't mind being called a geek. I know lots of people rave about Nolan, and think batman begins was better, but Dark Knight was simply amazing to me. Heath was spot on! and with the under current of forboding music all the way through the movie, my hair stood on end on my arms often all the way through it. I saw THAT one about 5 or 6 times too. I know I did.

While the Avengers, putting on screen ALL of the heroes at once is a milestone, and the movie was just very well done, it don't make me not want to see any other comic movie coming out.

It makes me excited for them all. The new Batman, Spiderman... Think about it people. This summer, we are getting the Avengers, a new Batman, a new Spiderman, Will Smith back to what he does best AND a new Alien movie.

If you are not excited about ALL of it, you are just nuts.
