Everytime I hear someone say that Christopher Nolans trilogy is overated I feel like they are doing it because its cool. It really makes me sick everytime someone says that because I hear it nearly every time. These are the arguements for why they say its overated, it may not be all at the moment because I either didn't come across it or it wasn't made up yet.
Christian Bale's batman voice. I get why people would be bothered because it kinda bugs me too, but not to the point where I would bitch about it like it was some leision that won't go away. Not everyone is Michael Keaton and not everyone is Kevin Conroy.
The realistic atmosphere. Some people still prefer the gothic look, I get it. It can be cool at times, but most of the time a realistic background works better and more compelling stories, sure I there are good stories with an unrealistic atmosphere like with clayface and manbat, but I don't like it when he's in outer space fighting aliens or supernatural beings, Do people really want another batman and robin. There are many interpretations of our beloved character. There are always going to be people who just bash things for the sake of it. Even batman the animated series gets a few bashings.
Heath Ledgers's joker. I personaly felt he nailed it. I also enjoyed ceaser romano's take as well as jack nicholson's but my personal favourite is without a doubt Mark Hamill. Fair enough that some peole would prefer someone elses performance, but people demand that it be exactly like someone elses performace. That is the worst thing you could do when you play this character, the same goes for batman and any other character. If you don't believe me watch young justice and their take on heath ledgers joker.
It isn't like the comics. Tim Burton's movies aren't like the comics either, last time I checked the joker never had the name Jack Napier in the comics. Its a movie, it ain't always going to be the same. Sure the joker doesn't have the joker venom, bane doesn't have venom and Ra's al ghul doesn't use the lazarus pit, catwoman doesn't have her whip. People moan about that like its something important to his character, its actually secondary to their characters. The essential parts are their characterisations, Ra's al ghul is still the man who's obsessed in making the world a eutopia by wiping out the world's population and changing the world to the way he wants it to be, the joker to me is spot on despite that he's not permewhite or lack off joker venom, I enjoyed Michelle Phifer's performance as catwoman although I didn't like her characterisation in that movie, I think Ann Hathaway nailed it too with her part even though my favourite is still Julie Newmar. I personally prefer Tom Hardy's version of bane to the comic version, I'll discuss why later. I agree that the scarecrow didn't get used enough and I wish he got more screen time.
There is much more to get through but for now I'll leave it to you. I know I'll get hate mail and some of you will agree with me. I'l get to the rest later.
