    Burtons bat movies could be called art. Nolan's...joyless constructs created by a man who HATES COMIC BOOKS.
    First of all, Burton doesn't like comic books. Your boy, Kevin Smith, would agree.

    Second, I'm not saying Batman is art. I'm saying Bale treats his career and acting in general like art. He's extremely serious about it. He doesn't even consider himself a celebrity. Just an actor. I'm not injecting my opinion here. He won't play Batman again unless someone blows him away with an idea. I mean the guy grows a long ass beard in between roles just in case and has no problem losing 60 pounds every other movie. Not once has he treated his career the way Depp and Downey Jr have the last several years.

    Third, now that you mention is, yes Nolan's films are artistic.

    Just out of curiosity, what has RDJ done to sully his career lately?

    That's not what I hear from people that have worked on his movies.

    Bale makes this guy...



    look absolutely modest by comparison.

    And I stand by my statement. Burton's Bat-flicks look exactly like pre-production artwork. It's an immersive FANTASY world created for a comic book icon. Not a deconstruction of every aspect of that characters history. Hence...art. Nolan's bat films are so subconsciously angry at everything they represent, fantasy/comic books/mainstream tentpole flicks...he seems a very unhappy man. And so does Bale. At least RDJ doesn't have a dustup with his estranged Mother in a hotel. Downey may be cashing in but at least he does it with a wink and a smile and seems to have a solid grasp of his place in the world. Can't argue with the Depp throw in because he needs to take a step back and join us mortals again...

    Bale, with the weight loss, the new combover he developed for his next flick etc...is becoming an even bigger douche than Daniel Day Lewis.

    Well, not in the personal sense, from what i hear he is off putting with his 'remaining in character' deal. Like when he was making Lincoln he WAS Lincoln 24/7. That skews towards douchey.

    Can you remember the last time he played a character not named Tony Stark or Sherlock Holmes? Or the last time he didn't just play himself in a movie? He's far too talented to get away with that, IMO.

    Well, Bale did that because he was a huge fan of T2. And then McG happened. For all we know his finding out that the movie was crap was the reason for his tirade onset.

    I gotcha. I don't necessarily disagree with that, although I don't think RDJ is anywhere near as far gone as Depp is.
