Batman Begins!
I liked it.

Smart, quirky, funny. Wonderful production design.

Not sure about much more to say - only I was amused by this quote on IMDB:

Before the shooting began, Christopher Nolan invited the whole film crew to a private screening of Blade Runner (1982). After the film he said to the whole crew, "This is how we're going to make Batman."

No wonder I liked the look. And I want a Batmobile.

Not a CGI Batmobile either - apparently the bugger really does all those things on the screen!

I was shocked to hear that apparently loads of people hate the new Batmobile, personally i thought it was great!

Another thing about the film, do you think it might have upset the US acting unions, I mean look at the 6 main cast members:

Bruce Wayne: Christian Bale (Welsh)
Alfred: Michael Caine (English)
Gordon: Gary Oldman (English)
Ras-Al-Ghul: Liam Neeson (Irish)
Dr. Crane: Cillian Murphy (Irish)
Rachel: Katie Holmes (US)

I doubt it... however Christian Bale sounds very Californian now when being interviewed. I think he's "gone to the other side".

I was only being silly : )

You're right about Mr B going native though, he has a weird accent these days.

He's Welsh.

He always had a weird accent. It's just differently weird now.
