Batman Begins

Oh, yeah. That's the good stuff.

It's a cool take on Batman, and I enjoyed it bunches. Those who want a more detailed analysis can hit the Begum thread. Probably my second favorite Batman movie.

Emory really wants Katie Holmes to become Two-Face (Begins is set in a Harvey Dent-less universe), which is a cool idea in theory, but as Paul noted, Holmes probably couldn't pull it off. Frank also pointed out that she's presented as too level-headed to go off the deep end after her face gets scarred. Dent had problems well before becoming a villain. Still, gender-reversed villains are cool.

Emory's point is that, yeah, she's level-headed, but then she get a faceful of crazy-dust and is under it for a long time. Maybe she starts being nuttier after this. Or maybe that's a stretch.

Oh, that's right, I completely forgot about that. My mistake.

But I still don't think Katie Holmes is a good enough actress to play Two-Face.

Dude, this really should have been labeled for spoilers...now I know something horrific is going to happen to Katie Holmes face.

And I think that's AWESOME!

No, nothing bad happens to her face in the movie. She would have to have something horrible happen to her face in a later film to become Two-Face.

The movie's dark, but not THAT dark.

She'd need a little more then something happening to her FACE to become Two-Face, wouldn't she?

I mean, isn't Two-Face a man or am I missing something?

Come now, don't you really want her to be The Joker's Daughter? The Teen Titan who was a girl Joker who was actually Two-Faces daughter, Duella Dent? Yeah, I thought you did, because gender reversed villains are AWESOME!

Like Catman.

Is there such a thing as too much Catman?

I say no.
