    Seriously?! Those were some of the most over-edited, hacked up, underacted piles of crap I've seen on the big screen. Now many Marvel films are not movies worth watching either(see The Incredible Hulk), but those Batman movies offered nothing. A superhero story is a simple three-act plot, the guy finds out he is a hero and who his nemesis is, then he develops his powers and realizes what is at stake with him being a hero and what the villain is plotting, the third act there is a showdown, good vs evil. You can play off it, twist it up, or stick to it--but you can't just throw a bunch of cool-looking and marketable stuff together on expensive sets, shorten every scene down to a Robot-Chicken-Style dialog soup, and have an actor die before release and call it a tour de force. Nolan's best work is still Momento--and that movie is played out backward.

    Don't hate on Batman. You are the only person I have ever heard of that thinks those movies sucked. The new joker was better than Nicholson and the new story lines are more realistic than the old Keaton Batman movies. I do have to say though that Bale's voice while in costume was freakin' ridiculous.

    Heath Ledger's Joker would never have existed without Jack Nicholson. Before Nicholson, the Joker was always depicted as a high-pitched, giggly clown...some kind of tweaker maniac. The creepy, harsh whisper now commonly accepted as the appropriate voice for Joker is just the naturally creepy sound of Jack Nicholson talking with emphasis.

    I'm certainly not the only one who didn't jump on the hype. Give it ten years, it won't even hold up to memory. And for plots making sense or being realistic, I defer to my comedic associates, cracked.com.

    I saw a bit of this movie at my friends house the other night. He downloaded a cam version of it and it looks ok. the action scenes look kinda meh, and all over the place but it should be good. I saw probably the first half hour of it

    didnt get to see any parts with Natalie Portman though...

    I attended the premiere last night. Overall, Thor is an entertaining movie. Not the most sophisticated plot, but you wouldn't expect that either. Cast does a good job, Natalie Portman looks marvelous as expected. This was my first time at one of the new 3-D movies (I passed on Avatar-didn't interest me at all) and I was stunned by the special effects and I think you will be too. Some really good action/battle scenes throughout the movie. Anthony Hopkins was great as Odin.

    They showed a 3-D preview of Captain America and I'm very excited to see that one, I suspect it will be better than Thor.
