"This was all your idea!"

OKAY FLIST

LET'S TALK ABOUT THE DARK KNIGHT


  • I love how the Bat-tank has an Intimidate and Loiter mode
  • Oh Johnathan Crane. How low you've fallen.
  • GUYS. HEATH LEDGER WAS FANTASTIC. AND CREEPY. AND ABSOLUTELY PERFECT.
  • God this movie hits so many "alshdsaldhasdlhas" buttons. 
  • HARVEY DENT OMG HARVEY DENT
  • BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAW HARVEY DENT
  • Harvey x Bruce is still one of my ships okay. Don't judge me.
  • ashdasdkhasdlashd joker in a nurse outfit w-wow
  • BATMAN IN HONG KONG. insert lols here
  • I love that they played up the Bruce Wayne playboy persona here.
  • As always I love Alfred. "I'm going too as your accomplice aren't I?" "Accomplice? I'm telling them it was all your idea!"
  • Man, it's amazing how one man, one man can bring an entire city to its knees in a matter of days. Not in the way Batman could. The Joker just. is that powerful and dangerous a person.
  • ASDIASDASJDASDKSAD COMMISIONER GORDON.
  • Wait wait why does he have a son, he's not supposed to have a son...
  • God, the plot of the film hurts my soul in the sense that the Joker really does win in a way. He brought down the soul of Gotham and made him tainted and ugly.
  • "Why is he running dad?" "Because we have to chase him." OWCH
  • And the finale really brings back the core of darkness and pain that Batman signifies. Because he is, truly, a dark knight.
  • Alfred dislikes Russian ballet dancers. This is relevant rly.

ALL IN ALL, YES. It was like being hit by a friggin' bat-tank.
THEY MADE HEATH READ KILLING JOKE AND ARKHAM ASYLUM

GOD ALMIGHTY DOESN'T THIS EXPLAIN SO DAMN MUCH ABOUT WHAT WERE WERE AS;DLKFJA;SLDKJFING OVER
AND APPARENTLY NOLAN READ THEM TOO. GOD. NO WONDER JOKER WAS SO AIEEEEEEEE HE'S HITTING ALL MY BUTTONS FROM THE COMICS WHY IS HE DOING THAT

AND YES I NEEDED TWO THREADS JUST TO FLAIL AT YOU IN
Arkham Asylum was amazing. It just also totally broke my brain at a time when I was looking for Bat-dorkiness and Bat-woobie. I need to go back and reread it, man.
Y-Yeah, you can't look for that. It doesn't have Bat-woobie, it only has PAAAAAAAAAAAAAAIN.
Yeahhh. You have to read. Like. Superman/Batman for the woobie and whatnot. Or Batfamily things. Not Asylum, Asylum was just *falls to knees clutching temples* kinda thing.
yeah I don't know why Gordon has a son either HAY THAT'S NEW, WHUT

PAAAAAAAIIIN. So good. So Battastic.
SAME. Well, at least it saved us flailing over OH GOD FUCK IS THE JOKER GOING TO TARGET BABS IN THE FUTURE, because by that point my heart couldn't take any more.
...that was not fun either, no

It was certainly very nuuuuuu don't do it. AND did you notice Joker Killing-Joke'd Harvey instead of Gordon! And, uh, drove him insane. Shit.
I'm pretty sure Gordon had a son in Begins as well? I HAVEN'T SEEN IT IN A WHILE.

oh my god when you first see Harvey's face in the hospital you could practically hear everyone stop breathing in the cinema
I can't remember ANYTHING from Batman Begins. Sad but true.

What gave me a heartattack was the dead batman impersonator hanging by the window.
HERE'S THE OFFICIAL STORY (from what I remember).

James Gordon, Sr. is married to his wife, Barbara. They have a son (I don't remember the daughter from the comics, but they retcon things all the time).

One day, Barbara and James Jr get kidnapped by the Joker and put in a warehouse full of babies. I think Barbara saves all the babies ('cept her son) and then gets blown up. Or something. I need to find it for real. Right around that time Jim's niece loses her parents in a car accident, and Jim adopts her. Her name is Barbara. Confused yet? She becomes Batgirl. THAT IS WHAT HAPPENED TO INVISIBLE SON.
