    I disagree with Godfather, Rocky, Batman, and Back to the Future.

    Batman 2 is viewed as the worst of them all by most critics and fans. What did you see different?

    what are you talking about? what critics and fans are you referring to?

    Batman and Batman Returns(Burton Films) were both great, but like with the Godfather and Back to the Future series, i prefer the sequel...although not by much.

    everyone knows the Joel Schumacher Batman Forever and Batman & Robin were the worst Bat films.

    What the fuck?


    Undeniable truth spewed disdainfully from the sneering mouth of the trained killer.



    Batman and Robin was truly garbage. Cheesy lines, really rubbish acting, bright, garish primary colours, crap plot, big plotholes within said plot.

    It's regarded by some as the worst film ever. It's surely up there.

    Batman Returns had too many villains. And they were all shitty.


    None of them were that good from what I remember (before "Begins")

    It did come first.

    1.) Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom
    2.) Raiders of the Lost Ark/Indiana jones and the last crusade.

    Which is why I labeled the Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom as my number one choice in the series over Raiders of the Lost Ark which tied with the last crusade.

    I was thinking of penguin and catwoman, but I think I got it mixed up with Forever.

    Returns was probably the best of the first 4, but even it was pretty forgettable.

    Okay yeah, Batman Returns wasn't bad... I was thinking of the one with George Clooney... is that Batman and Robin?

    I thought Batman Begins was pretty nice.

    Oh, I also think Superman II was infinitely better than Superman.

    General Zod is one of the best movie villains of all time... his one liners were classic.

    Isn't Batman begins a Prequel not a sequel ?

    Speaking of sequels, National treasure 2 was much better than one.
    Infact, I think that movies going on my top ten list for 2007.

    i was going to drill you like it was your first week at military camp...peeling potatoes and such. then you apologized.

    still very stupid of you to make a statement about something you've barely any knowledge about...especially trying to contradict me when you know that i know my shit and don't solely rely on google like yourself.

    we have our differences, mainly because of your inability to cope with your own insecurities(trying to deny it while laughing it off and being overly defensive will just make it more obvious), but when i say something don't question it, just accept it...or at least swallow what little pride you have and try and ignore it so as not to make yourself look any more foolish.

    capisce?


    don't think of it as the first 4....they aren't connected.

    Burton had his own vision and Schumacher had his.

    i wouldn't say infinitely better, but i agree that SII was better than the first one by a significant margin.

    have you seen the Richard Donner Cut?

    No, it's not a prequel either.

    it's a movie on it's own...the start of a new Bat film series.

    don't you ever dare disrespect the Legend like this again pedro.

    i'll give INS a quick call, and you'll be back in meh-hee-co in no time

    let me restate a few things:

    1. noone in the military peels potatoes
    2. i'm not a cook
    3. you're insecure
    4. double is not insecure
    5. i am infinitely smarter than you
    6. i rarely use google to look up shit. i depend on my super intelligent mind.
    7. you suck at life.
    8. just to make it an even number.
