Yes, but the film is PG-13/TV-14.
All right, so while most Toonami programming is rated TV-Y7, and thus suitable for just about anyone, we finally get something on Toonami rated TV-14V, thus aimed at the oldest of the demographic. Nothing wrong with that now, eh?
Nothing is wrong with them airing TV-14 programming. I just thought that airing toy ads during TV-14 stuff is somewhat funny. Not haha funny, but weird funny.
Remember what William said.
While your recent line of discussion is not animated vs. live action. Talk of Toonami ratings does little to enhance the discussion of the movie.
You fine folks are here on The Entertainment Board to discuss the movie itself. If you have no intention of doing so then you aren't contributing to the thread or the board. Thank you.
Did Cartoon Network have this problem?
Sorry...but it's mirrored to the Toonami forum, and I access it from the Toonami forum, so it confuses me.
Yes and as I mention'd earlier, the 70mm print I saw as part of Rerun Thursday at the Broadway Metro didn't have the lint bit in there either.
Its the best movie in the series...Just not the best one ever.
On the special edition DVD, they explain about how the writer didn't want Jack to be the killer. It was Burton's idea to make Jack the killer in the movie so that it could have a purpose for Batman and for the movie itself.
Burton's original idea was that the Joker was actually a serial killer persona (just a guy in clown make-up, no chemicals involved).
The original scene of the Waynes dying would have been a Ice Cream truck driving up and the Joker blasting them to death with a Tommy gun.
DC nixed the idea, saying it was too much of a departure from the comic origin (not to mention, stupid.)
There are other threads detailing Burton's proposed changes, including a perplexing take on Robin's origin, featuring two minute cameos by Two-Face, Catwoman and Penguin.
I apoligize for doing that.
ClockStomper, would you mind linking me up to where-ever Burton's other ideas for the initial film were discussed?
The other night me and a couple of freinds were talking about batman begins my friends are convinced it is the greatest batman movie ever. Now I know most people here love that film but its not for me I said to them "what about mask of the phantasm or tim burtons great films!?" they didn't say anyhting just stared at me "you have seen those films right" I asked "No" they replied " just batman forever".
I consider Tim burtons batman to be the greatest adaption to date. Though I do not like it as much as the sequel but I still consider it a great movie. Jack nicholson is great as the Joker though a little to old. The fight scenes were very enjoyable especially the ones with the batmobile I loved seeing all the diffrent kind of gadgets Bruce packed in there. There are a few complaints I would of liked the beggining to focus on the origin of batman and I found the end a little dissapointing.
Wicked movie, IMO... there's a reason why i quote this movie in my signature.
Jack Nicholson totally owned this movie with his portrayal of the Joker. Seriously, I always thought this movie shoulda been called "Joker."
Batman himself was pretty cool... He got owned pretty easily by some of the thugs, but it was all right... It always irked me how stiff Batman looked... whenever I watched him fight, you knew he would win just for the sake of him being the good guy... but it didn't matter... seein' Batman just kick the guy in face after wailing those swords around was just bad-ass.
There are many reasons why I prefer Begins to this, but I don't even wanna go into it... such a topic has been done to death, and it doesn't matter... both films established the darkness of the character, whether it be from a mythical point of view (Burton), or from a psychological point of view (Nolan)... I love this movie to death... "You wanna get nuts?! C'mon! Let's get nuts!"
And I don't care what any of you say... I liked Prince.
Classic, all the way. Now I just wanna end off by listing my fave quotes from the movie (man, I'm glad this thread got bumped up).
Thug: "Don't kill me man! Don't kill me! Don't kill me, man!"
Batman: "I'm not gonna kill you. I want you to do me a favour. I want you to tell all your friends about me."
Thug: "What are you?"
Batman: "I'm Batman."
Knox: "Lieutenant, is there a six-foot bat in Gotham City? And if so, is he on the police pay roll? And if so, how much does he pull in... after taxes?"
and of course...
Joker: "HE STOLE MY BALLOONS! WHY DIDN'T ANYBODY TELL ME HE HAD ONE OF THOSE...THINGS?!"
My favourite line is one my sister is FED UP with me using (and of course I always reference it's origin - nothing worse than stealing a quote and pretending it's yours..)
"The rich. You know why they're so odd. Because they can afford to be!"
I love that.
hahaha that's good stuff... I almost forgot about that one. Knox and Vale are looking at the giant mirror...
"Look at this mirror... maybe he should be Bruce Vain."
Great movie.This will forever remain a classic.This,Batman Begins and batman:Mask of the Phantasm are the best batman movies there are.I liked "mask of the phantasm" the most but this movie really helped to influence it.The 40s feel,the mafia,tommy guns,gargoyles,gothic architecture,retro phones,classic cars,corruption and revenge are among many things in this movie to make it look great.Thank you Tim burton.
Best Batman movie ever. I love it. It'll never be topped.
This and BATMAN RETURNS are the only (live-action) Batman movies I'll ever own on DVD.
Batman begins wasn't one of your favourites was it?
No, it wasn't. I was not a fan of BATMAN BEGINS at all.
I only like the first two. And, I admit, I can still enjoy BATMAN FOREVER somewhat, but not enough to buy it.
