Went to see Batman today and really enjoyed it. It is a little long but that didn’t bother me.

You know what this movie felt like? A mash up of the tell tale Batman game and the Arkham series of Batman games. I felt like I was watching a movie adaptation of those games.

This movie kinda felt like the 2nd half of Batman begins and all of the dark knight.

Anyway, if you like dark Batman, you’ll like this movie.

It wasn't the actual story but it heavily took from Long Halloween which is my personal favourite Batman story.

I really enjoyed this Batman. I actually rewatched the Michael Keaton and the first Christian Bale one after it as well just to confirm in my own mind that this newest one was my favourite… and it is.

I agree that The Batman WAS a little long, and somehow the very end still felt a little rushed to wrap up. But I didn’t mind also.

I think I like particularly that it is much more vigilante detective than superhero movie.

Catwoman was also superb.

https://www.telltale.com/batman-a-telltale-story/

I’m not even sure if these games are available anymore because I think telltale doesn’t exist, but if you have a chance give it a play through. This movie very much felt like a loose adaptation of this story.

Also if you’re not a video gamer these telltale games are barely games. It’s almost like a choose your own adventure motion comic.

You should all go see “Belfast”

https://youtu.be/Ja3PPOnJQ2k

Some parts may need subtitles ;D

I finally got a chance to see it and very much echo the recommendation. Of the Oscar nominated movies Belfast or Drive My Car are probably my favourites of the year. Shame that Ciaran Hinds didn't win an Oscar last night as I thought he was terrific in particular.

It's funny, Kenneth Branagh would have been on a short list for me of guys who I thought had the most sort of stereotypical upper-crust English accents so to find out that this is basically his story and that the accent was learned was pretty interesting.
I wish to hell I’d never said "Winning isn’t everything it’s the only thing". What I believe is, if you go out on a football field, or any endeavour in life, and you leave every fibre of what you have on the field, then you’ve won.

The “real” accent is still there  ;D

I actually rewatched this with my dad tonight. He was born in the early 1950s so would have been in his late teens when this movie was set. He was very moved by it. You could see at times he was being taken back to those times.

Obviously I was born a bit later and the “worst” of it all was probably over as I grew up, but even I felt some very raw memories being rekindled of some of the parts of the movie.

What I particularly loved about it though was that the one thing that shone through even for me was how the (at times very dark) humour and the good nature of most people continued to shine through and got a lot of people through things.

I thought this movie really captured that.

My cousin was an undercover British officer in Belfast.  He fell in love with an Irish girl and they got married in a bunker surrounded tanks and a squad of soldiers. He was one tough bastard.

Watched Thirteen Lives tonight. True story about those kids who got stuck in the cave in Thailand a few years back. Despite knowing the story it was still really gripping and dramatic. Having claustrophobic tendencies probably didn’t help!

It’s on Prime already too. And directed by Ron Howard.
