Join John Pavlich of Sofa Dogs and me for the second of Christopher Nolan’s Batmen! We judge it to be the best of breed, with a tour de force performance from Heath Ledger. We discuss plot depth and stuff, like how much of a racist I am (apparently a lot). We debate whether it is a mushy in the middle and which Robertses and Gyllenhaals we can do without. And we agree that this movie would be great with or without a dude dressed as a bat.
Also, we consider Milla Jovovich as Catwoman and Bruce Willis as the Penguin or somebody to try to reunite them with Gary Oldman and Tiny Lister from The 5th Element. Here’s some more: Ian Holm as Mr. Freeze and Chris Tucker as that dude Liberace played in the old TV show!
I’m watching the Blu-ray. Start the film right after the Warner Brothers logo has faded, on the countdown.
