    I'm a huge Batman fan so much, I'm building a life size Batmobile like the one from the 1966 TV series. The series was campy but, I loved the batmobile, Batgirl and Catwomen.
    I have to say, I'm disappointed in the Batman movies, too dark or gloomy. The last one was probably best of all.

    Moulin Rouge,, I thought that was a chick flick ?

    I'm not into a lot of special affects and shoot em up, blowing up stuff. I like it but, I don't want that to be the only thing the movie has to offer. I love the good guy against the bad guy kind of stuff and a plot along with some good action and then shooting up the place sprinked in with some car chases and a couple of things getting exploded.

    None of that stuff is in Moulin Rouge. It's just Obi-Wan Kenobi (the new one, not Sir Alec Guinness) singing with Nicole Kidman the whole time. My wife loves it.

    I heard or read the original obi one was arrested years before starwars for trying to pick up an uncover cop. a male cop at that.

    i could never come up with a good joke for that one.

    Good to see you around bro. Hope life's been treating you well these days.

    existenz was kinda like a matrix type of movie that was a little darker and pushed a little more into the blurred lines of what is real? It was one of those movies I'd never heard about but just happened to watch on HBO one day a long time ago. i hope you like it. it was different.

    I wasn't expecting much from Moulin Rouge - actually dreading seeing it with my wife. But I was blown away impressed with that movie. I expected a chick flick (which it was to a degree) but left the theater in awe of whoever made that pic. Pure genius. I'm a fan of art and culture and anything different and creative.

    So much was blended into that movie. I could have lived without the love story or Ewan McGregor's singing which was a bit annoying. I just though the whole thing all together was such a jump ahead in creativity from everything else I'd ever seen until that point.

    The history, the cinematography, the pace, the costumes, the way 80s pop music was mixed into the musical, the story telling.

    It may totally suck now given how the world has changed so fast over the last 10 years, but that was the movie I will always remember seeing and when I left the theater, I was just in awe of how brilliantly done this picture was.

    An artistic genius like an Andy Warhol. It was a pivitol movie that I felt would change culture and everything we see for the next 20 years.

    I think my wife said she thought I was gay for liking it more than she did. But seriously, I hate chick flicks. And there were some things in this movie that were definitely not intended for men. I just appreciated the artistic interpretation and the creativity.

    And I'm a sucker for 80s music
