Batman Begins: A Club 11 movie review

By Mike Wargo

Who says Hollywood is in a slump? With Batman Begins the studios have outdone themselves. They didn’t just create a gay ninja flick. No, they figured out a way to make it a comic book prequel horror action movie with bad dialogue that only started as a gay ninja flick. Watching this convoluted piece of crap is one of the most unpleasant three hours I’ve spent in years, including my colonoscopy and Lord of The Rings. The theater was packed with chatty couples, crying babies with pagers, and morons laughing at the fodder (I hate people). But even with all of that, the movie was the worst part. It was that bad.

The acting and direction were fine, but the story and script were such a bastardized mix of focus group crap that it was well beyond saving. And the worst part was that I was expecting a good movie. The critics, and even some of my EX-friends, said this was an interesting character piece. Shame on you! I went in expecting a thoughtful journey into a tormented soul and I left with only a headache and a loathing for mankind. All I’m saying is don’t promise me the world and then dump on my face. On a scale of 1 to Club11, Batman Begins gets a 3.

As you already know, I did not dislike the movie as much as you did. And you already know that anything with a homoerotic undertone combined with ninjas is simply MAGICAL. Especially gay ninjas that do a step dance routine while high on blue flowers.

I found it quite enjoyable but not in an entertainment sort of way. It wasn't that bad, but I still found it rather weird. And am I the only person who likes the new Batmobile? At least it doesn't look like a giant Gary & Ace dildo anymore. And you have to admit The Scarecrow was pretty cool. Come on!

I finally saw Batman Begins this past weekend and I'd have to say it was one of the best comic book movies I've ever seen. I think someone may have spiked your Metamucil.

I agree with Chris. I really liked "Batman Begins." Wargo is just a hater. To think I worked on a film with this guy. What was I thinking. I think my Metamucil was spiked.
