I still don’t think this is going to come out right.
Batman Begins is a great movie, but I was disappointed. They even used my theory about Batman, that his motive is fear rather than revenge. I was still disappointed.
The movie wasn’t mythic. It was a realistic movie explaining how a human being could end up acting like Batman, but I didn’t leave the theater feeling like I’d actually seen BATMAN. I haven’t figured out whether it was the writing, the acting, the directing, etc., but it wasn’t really BATMAN. Too realistic? I don’t think so. Lame female lead? She wasn’t so much lame as realistic… I don’t know how to explain it.
But five minutes of Serenity, for me, was more thrilling than the whole Batman Begins movie.
