Batman Begins v Batman Forever

Posted in BATTLES with tags , , , , , , , , , , on February 1, 2009 by rossvross

In the luminous green corner stands Batman, Robin, The Riddler, Two-Face and Nicole Kidman’s cleavage. In the very dark corner (though not as dark as The Dark Knight’s corner) stands uh, Batman. And his beginnings. Which is the better film? Read the arguments and decide. Was that intro over the top? I can never tell! Continue reading
