haha. sorry if i set off your pretentious radar. is it not even okay to use the two interchangeably? i'll agree with you that the people who call citizen kane a "film" and harold and kumar a "movie" deserve to be bitch slapped.

the shootout scene in heat alone is enough to make it a masterpiece.

Here's a piece of a review from AICN...

"This film is brilliant and has no equal in the realm of comic book movies. It is a film so good that I almost don't want to see a third because I know there is almost no way it could live up to its predecessor. It will give children nightmares and redefine the way we look at The Joker, the Batman and comic book movies in general. This is the Godfather of superhero movies. The Empire Strikes Back. It is a film that may never find an equal, a film that will have you staring jaw agape with your hand planted in front of your face in disbelief at how far it is ready to go. It is what we always thought a Batman film could be, but never seemed to happen. Yes. It is the real deal. It is the greatest Batman story ever told."

I am so fucking amped for this movie!

this is par for the course for that site, but it's a great movie.

I think I'm honestly more stoked for the second time I see it so I can bring some friends that aren't really in to the character, or comics.

i sense a return to the richard of old...

Sure would be neat-o if you could install an applet that would continue to count down until actual show time.
