"THE BATMAN discussion post (Matt Reeves, 2022)"


  

          

Someone has to tell me how this is not rated R.

People are going to hate this movie.

It's a 3 hour hardboiled detective story that's legit terrifying and I cannot stress enough, violent as fuck. There's action but not in a big budget blockbuster sense. The biggest set piece is the car chase which feels like it came from a William Friedkin movie.

This is more grounded, realistic, and gritty than anything in Nolan's trilogy. Even the third act set piece is smaller and more real than even the smallest set piece in THE DARK KNIGHT TRILOGY. This Gotham is gross and seedy.

What's cool is that almost every character has an arc including Batman (not Bruce, but Batman)

What I love is how this addresses that Brucevhas money and can deal with half of the city's problems through philanthropy and influence.

This also looks at Batman's white male rage as white privilege.

I'll save more for when this drops, but yeah this is my favorite Batman movie so far.

And this is literally about Batman as Bruce Wayne is only in it for about 10 - 15 minutes.

The Dark Knight is a legendary performance within a good, not great flic...
Mar 06th 2022
31
Batman movies have always been about the villains other than Begins
Mar 06th 2022
32
Oooh, that's actually why I think this one felt way *less* flat.
Mar 06th 2022
33
      We’re in complete agreement
Mar 07th 2022
34
I wouldn't watch this movie over and over.

Great and funny review and it’s better the second time
Mar 16th 2022

The ending: SPOILER
Mar 16th 2022
41
It was a good costume. Probably best in the movies BUT
Mar 17th 2022
42
      The costume translation is always an issue. Such different mediums.
Mar 17th 2022
43
      It wasn’t a photo op. That was him learning how to be a better Batman.
Mar 20th 2022
44
           Understood. That's what I liked about the IDEA of the ending
Mar 20th 2022
45
deleted scene with Joker (link)
Mar 24th 2022

creepy...as...fuck
Mar 24th 2022

Loved the scene but glad it wasn't in the movie
Mar 24th 2022

Sick of the Joker
Mar 25th 2022

I want them to build him up for 1-2 more movies.

visual masterpiece. most naturalistic Batman on film ever.
Apr 11th 2022
52
HBO Max on Monday, April 18th
Apr 12th 2022
53
On second viewing, The Penguin is wholly unnecessary
Apr 18th 2022
54
definitely a storyline too much
Apr 18th 2022
55
It was way too long. I think they wanted HBO Max spin-offs
