Just read it (I subscribe.) Surprised at some observations, looking forward to others. Holding my comments though.

Wow! This review seemed to be a very opinionated biased negative critique that barely focused on any of the positives of the film.

I'm not sure it's possible to write a review free of opinion, bias, and critique. That's sort of the point of a review, isn't it -- to take a position regarding the quality of the thing reviewed?

This guy didn't like it; the New Yorker's film critic similarly missed the point of Batman Begins, decrying the loss of Burton's Gothic grotesque sets in favor of a city that looked as if people might actually live in it. As far as I can tell, NY Magazine and the New Yorker like to be deliberately contrarian in their film reviews, especially where summer blockbuster films are concerned. In any event, almost all the other advance critical buzz around the Dark Knight is simply glowing.

> I think this guy has just seen to mant movies and just lost a lust for anything not exceptionaly deep and with a uniliberal meaning or metephoric continuity, he cant just enjoy a good action/comic movie for what it is, and obviously not a batman fan or he would @#%$# a brick like i did. I thought it was awsome, and i eve heard ledger migt get an oscar or emmy for this.

I try to look at everything from an objective point of view.

I am planning even to read Morrison's Batman run to get a better understanding of what some people think is so great about it.

Good for you. (Note: My main points in discussions with you were not so much that I think Morrison's great- I don't, I think he's hit and miss- but rather that I didn't understand why you hated him so much, since to me his stuff reads like sequels to alot of the arcs & writers that you'd previously professed to loving so much. So, I look forward to you reading his actual run- skip the Ra's crossover and other fill ins if you- and seeing what you actually think. Although I would advise' read it with care and pay attention to details. I think sometimes to art is a little off and some of the finer plot points can be easily missed.)
