    Yes, he is!

    He is, by a country mile, the best Batman/Bruce Wayne.

    Any idiot built like a brick outhouse can beat people up, but Keaton gets the dichotomy of Bruce Wayne just right.

     

     

    He never had good material to work with, but I still the actor who played Batman and Bruce Wayne the best was Val Kilmer. Great voice too

    My pick still is Titanic, a score i find deeply lowest common denominator, and cf above, i absolutely concur that my opinion doesn't count a bit. It's a classic, so be it.

     

    I largely agree about Titanic, and no edition or expansion has been able to change my mind, but I must say I was very impressed by the track 2-1,2 Miles Down from the 4-cd expansion. Easily the highlight of the whole thing

    What is so spectacular about the top gun sequel? Was the first one such a classic to have this fanbase?

     

    The movie seems to be particularly good (I haven't seen it yet, but the reviews are terrific) so I think it owes its success more to the reception and word of mouth it's been getting than to nostalgia 

  4. I don't particularly care about canon or continuity and I think it often restrains and contracts the storytelling, but when you make a show, relying on the goodwill and love for characters created and developed in far superior works of fiction, at least try not to demean these works nor do things that contradict their spirit and change their narrative flow.

     

    The only possible way to interpret the spirit of the duel between Vader and Obi-Wan in A New Hope is that these two were former master and pupil and this was their first time meeting after having a major falling out. That's the whole spirit of the scene and of its buildup. To deny this is demeaning to the original film. And Disney so-called "storytellers" act more like lawyers looking for loopholes in the dialogue exchange between Vader and Obi-Wan to somehow justify them meeting again between episodes III and IV. It's lazy, it's trashy and its demeaning to the storytelling and narrative of the original film.

     

    They have a good solution to avoid these sort of problems and creative bankruptcy: create your own characters and timelines and leave, for the love of God, the Original Trilogy alone, specially episodes IV and V
