Batman Begins

Image hosted by

Let's start at the very beginning... a very good place to start... at Batman Begins! It's the very first movie I've watched of the series. I always thought of Batman as a superhero bitten by a bat somewhere along the way and came to inherit, well what do you know, the bat powers! Superhero characters can be weird huh? First there was a spider who didn't go up the water spouts but went from one building to the next like a modern Tarzan on the loose. Now comes a bat who emerged from the grandest cave only an insanely rich dude could afford.

Well, it's good to start at the beginning of it all because at least this movie set a lot of things straight for me. Batman definitely wasn't bitten by bats! Duh. Do bats bite? I don't know. But it was cool to know that Batman's real name is Bruce Wayne after all! Cool name, Bruce! Are you guys sure though that Bruce Wayne's not a reincarnation of FPJ? Batman sure resembled FPJ's voice in more ways than one. Think husky melodramatic voice. Remember when Rachel Dawes asked Batman to reveal his identity? Bruce said very dramatically, It's the things you do that defines you as a person. Now think, mag-SMB muna tayo pare ko.

Wait, I don't mean to make fun of Batman Begins. I just didn't have any background about it prior to watching. But I really enjoyed the movie. In fact, I saw it twice. Not that I like it that much though. The second time I watched, it was to keep my starfish company (the first time was with a beachy friend). But it was a good film that I didn't mind watching it again, especially with a sticky starfish beside you =P. And for an ignorant like me, the plot was easily understandable. Well basically, I got a good grasp of how Batman came to be. What I couldn't get a hold of though is how Bruce remained rich in spite of his long years of apathy towards their family business. And I couldn't get it why the mechanism that unlocks the secret hideout didn't malfunction amidst the burning mansion. And why was Rachel Dawes so damn righteous? The movie kept a clear line between good and evil actually. Good is underdog, always suffers and dreams of utopia. Evil is corrupt and all that crap.

Ok, one question... Why do we fall? So we could learn to pick ourselves up again.

    --am not a batman expert pero the board of directors of wayne enterprises (?) said that they will take care of the business while he is growing up :) he also had great timing because exacto lang sya sa pagbalik bago pa naging public company yung wayne enterprises

    oo, pero business-wise, di siya competent sa world of business. wala siyang alam sa business para makagawa ng sound decision making. realistically speaking lang ha =P

    7 years siyang out of the loop if i got my figure correctly -- from the time he tried to be one with the masa (the thieves, beggars, etc) until nakulong siya at nag-train siya kay liam neeson... dunno. not realistic for me. then all of a sudden he goes back after everyone thought he was dead, meaning, it's that long already. tapos he's expected to be wise in business? unless, ngayon ko lang naisip, baka meron siyang business adviser!

    si alfred naman, after 14 yrs, is still the same OLD yet strong and able butler. duh!

    at si katie holmes, wag ka ngang magsalita hahaha! nagustuhan ko naman talaga yung movie eh! :D
