    Also watched last night and have it on again in the background today. Definitely near the top of Batman movies for me and the best thing out of DC in a long time.

    Soundtrack is great, too. Especially Batman’s theme.

    It was a good movie but not great.

    It needed to be rated R to really drive home the depravity in Gotham but they wont do that with their cash cow so we got a watered down se7en.

    I liked pattinson as Batman, penguin and Falcone were terrific. Didn’t love Riddler and Alfred

    I thought it was very good, I also think an R cut would be better.

    Me too. Andy Serkis was far from the worst thing in the movie.

    7/10

    Only cons for me was way too much rain, alfred was corny, and batman escaping the cops was full of plot holes

    I liked the rain aesthetic. It gave this Gotham a unique vibe; helped it stand out from prior iterations.

    The rain is a pretty common trope of the Noir genre.

    Idk if they’re gonna stick with it but I’m assuming that was the joker at the end. The grave robber kid from The Green Knight

    Finally got a chance to watch it. Big fan of the atmosphere and general tone of the film, fit a lot of the gritty 80s Batman comics.

    Wasn’t a big fan of the general chemistry between Selina and Bruce; he’s a little too weird and she’s a little too nice for it to work right.

    Dano was fantastic and if anything, underutilized once he was unmasked. Seems p clear they’re going for the long game on this, so plenty of time to shine more in sequels.

    A bit rough, but very promising; 8/10

    I've rewatched this two times since my above post and it's been better each time. Movie has stayed on my mind. I think it does the best job of capturing the essence of who Batman is in my live-action memory.

    Just saw this scene for the first time. I thought based on his silhouette in the actual movie that they were trying to make his features sharp almost like the cartoon version of the Joker. But after watching this, I was way off. Thought Keoghan played the part well enough for a single scene. I know that the Joker had a accident that left him looking the way he does, but I wasn’t a fan of the over-the-top grotesque aesthetic. The Jeremiah Valeska version on Gotham did that better. But definitely excited to see an expanded Joker storyline in the next RP Batman.

    I agree. I think his appearance was a bit over the top. I hope since that scene was deleted that it isn't canon and they revisit that a little bit for a sequel.

    Clayface is fighting Batman and throws mud in his face, getting it in his eyes and making Batman temporarily blinded. As he wipes the mud away and is slowly able to see again, we shift to a Batman POV shot and the music kicks in

    Would love it, and it would be a great vehicle for Michael Keaton as old Bruce if they wanted to go that route.

    I'm thinking it would be animated since it's some of the same people from Spider-verse.
