  1. He should try and talk to his friends about lottery numbers, if they're all able to see into the future and review a movie that isn't out yet.

  3. The ones from the '40s were pretty bad...

  4. I criticized Ledger being cast a whole bunch, as I saw him as a pretty boy whose main famous role was an overhyped look-how-sensitive-we-are Oscar bait flick. Then I saw the first trailer. I learned my lesson. Apparently I was the only one.

    1. I made the same mistake, and I think I've learned my lesson. I'm fully prepared for Affleck to be a great Batman.

    2. The lesson was available even earlier. When it was announced that Michael Keaton was going to play Batman, a lot of people reacted badly. Then people saw the movie and realized that, first, Keaton was (and is) a really good actor, and, second, that whoever plays Batman also has to play Bruce Wayne, and that Keaton was perfect for that role. He could seem superficial and air-headed one moment and then turn on the intensity. I think Ben Affleck will be good for the same reason.

      Incidentally, I thought that was a serious flaw in Christian Bale's portrayal. He couldn't turn off the intensity, so it was impossible to buy him as shallow playboy Bruce Wayne.

  5. The guy has a good point though - why wouldn't we all love to not have that conversation?
