Nasty piece of work, and very welcome in the Batman world.

Should I play Arkham Asylum? :\
By Eversor (SI Elite) on May 27, 2011
Eversor
Yeah. You'll know what happens and leads up Arkham City.

Can always tell a lot by asking a guy who his favourite comic book hero was/is as a kid. I bought "Spiderman" Issue Number #1, but have been a Batman fan since the old B&W television series. Great the way Bruce would dive into the back seat of his car to change into The Batman, with very pointy ears and a bit of a belly.

I have been a long time fan of Batman as well, but I was sick a lot when I was a kid so my parents and neighbours gave me comics to read - especially one guy that introduced me to comics and metal-rock. Batman has ever been a fascinating drama. Look forward to this.

@ Herodotus. The first couple of Batman films were, at least to me, quite awfull. The new 2 and upcomming Batman: The Dark Night Rises are the best.

I agree with you Eversor - the first movies aren't really that good. The franchise got even worse after the first two... The re-boot is good though IMO.

Portugal didn't really have a lot of "Space" for Marvel and DC Universe, mainly because it was captivated by European or Chinese Stuff. I ended up growing watching Songoku blasting everything instead of Superman saving ahaha Although, when Marvel showed Up, I quite fondly took an appreciation on Wolverine.. deeps me why..

I liked Michael Keaton as Bruce Wayne, in his own way but I agree that they weren't the best (I just don't get Tim Burton...not my flavour at all). Actaully enjoyed "Batman & Robin", tho panned by critics and fans as I was an ardent follower of the '60's TV show (grew up with it) and it is of the same flavour, but better.
I'm still not convinced with Christian Bale (although I have been a big fan of his other films), and felt that "The Dark Knight" was overly long.
I do look forward to "The Dark Night Rises" with Bane and Catwoman, and being directed by Chris Nolan it should be a good ride.
Gary Oldman - best Gordon hands-own.

I really loved the Batman animated series - I found that to be much better then the Keaton Batman start...

@ FoolWolf & Herodotus. Looks like two someone agrees with me.

You know that Gary Oldman acted an Carnegie in The Book of Eli. Boy that was a good movie.
By herodotus (SI Herodotus) on May 29, 2011
herodotus
Sure was. It's a good thing Oldman (like Ricky Dreyfuss, Tony Hopkins and Bill Hurt) kicked his alcoholism. If you watch "Bram Stoker's DRACULA" you can visibly see him swaying and slurring his words awfully. William Hurt went on a ten year bender in Mexico following "Altered States", and almost killed himself with grog. You can see how ill he was if you watch his first film back, "Michael".
Unfortunately addiction has plagued and destroyed many an artistic career.
But I digress...

Never saw book of Eli - is it any good?

The latest person to have a career at least 90 % ruined is Lindsay Lohan. She has consistently relapsed into using illicit substances.

You know, you can see how by how a persons face is weather the use somthing that hurts them. Smoking for example, look at someone like Kiefer Sutherland, he smokes. Smoking, besides damaging you heart, lungs and your vascular system, makes the process of ageing happen faster. Also Gary Oldman while he has quit drinking, he still has the damage of his past habbit that is visible by how his face is more I might say bony. Basically, using Tobacco, Alcohol and all other addictive substances are VERY detrimental to your health.

But how bad can it be. I both smoke cigarettes and use moist snuff. I have done both since I was 13. However, I don't and have never drunk any alcohol.

@FoolWolf. You really need to see The Book of Eli.
By FoolWolf (SI Elite) on May 29, 2011
FoolWolf
@ Eversor - will do! :)
I have quit all tobacco habits, smoking and moist snuff. I still drink too much coffee and I do enjoy alcohol - but not to get ass-drunk on. I like a buzz and I like some of them much due to taste and experiences.
Lindsay Lohan would be more tragic had she been a good actress to begin with. Now she is just a tragic media-victim.. :S

Charlie Sheen's another, as is Mel Gibson, both returning now to their habitual addictions. You can see Gibson at the height of his drinking days in "Mutiny on the Bounty", where the director asked Anthony Hopkins to help him (Hopkins was getting over booze himself so told him to "Bugger off").
As for Sheen, just watch the original "Wall Street" - that puffy face is due to whiskey.
Whoops,back to the topic...
By FoolWolf (SI Elite) on May 30, 2011
FoolWolf
Yeah well Sheen is the epic comet of how to dive into deep water right now. Mel had the title there for a couple of months. Britney Spears had a mental breakdown - but we still have tonnes of celebrities that do this crazy stuff. But the lowest must be the Doctor Drew or whats-his-name-is that is making a show out of it and send it right up big screen and making profit of peoples misery...

Good ole Mel Gibson. He makes good films, but his personal life isn't as good.
By FoolWolf (SI Elite) on May 30, 2011
FoolWolf
LOL - that is a mild conclusion of it all Evesor - however - I think he could be a good Batman villian ;)
By Eversor (SI Elite) on May 30, 2011
Eversor
Hmm, maybe. However he hasn't done any acting in quite a while.

Penguin!! So epic to have him as villain in the game x)
By FoolWolf (SI Elite) on May 30, 2011

@Evesor - he doesn't need to, he is turning into a villain on his own powers ;)
By herodotus (SI Herodotus) on May 30, 2011

He always was a villain, guys. He only got the role of Max in "Mad Max" because he got into a drunken bar brawl the night before the audition an looked suitably rough the next day.
As for the films he's made...always surrounded by controversy (generated by his big mouth). He once got on a talk show here to espouse his judgement on Indonesia and Taiwan (yonks ago). He made an absolute fool of himself.
And that fake American accent - makes me quiver.
By FoolWolf (SI Elite) on May 31, 2011
FoolWolf
LOL, yeah I remember when he was in Sweden and started to talk about child abuse ;) Or what he considered raising a kid and what we in Sweden consider - child abuse ;)

While most of his acting roles haven't been too impresive, his other films are quite good. Hamlet, Braveheart, The Patriot, We Were Soliders, The Passion of the Chirst and Apocalyto. They are all films that I have watched several times and thoroughly enjoyed.
