LIKE CRAZY.

The thing that I've been thinking about since seeing the movie yesterday morning is that the thing they did right in making this movie wasn't so much the added stuff, but the woven stuff. Follow me, what I mean is, it's not that they had a radically new take on Batman or created much new story for him, but that they wove the best stuff we all know about Batman together.

There are really only a few notably GREAT Batman tales in the history of the character that truly present ALL of how great he is in one story. The impression we all have of how awesome Batman is comes from hundreds of Batman stories. The feeling in our minds of how great he is is the sum of these tales, not the result of a single one. This movie, more than 99% of Batman stories I've heard, read, or watched, came closer to encompasing that which is BATMAN.

David Goyer (script) did an excellent job of creating some new stuff, don't get me wrong. His take on Ra's was dope. Weaving that in with Bruce, Falcone, and Scarecrow? Amazing. But what he really got right was how he PULLED Batman mythos from every great Batman story. Batman: Year One. The Burton Batman flick. Batman: Mask of the Phantasm. Batman: The Dark Knight Returns. They're all there, with probably hundreds more, because Goyer's personal Batman is (like mine) a composite of all the great Batman stories that have been told over the years.

Anyway, I'm impressed. I would've left out some of the jokes, but they weren't bad. I can't wait to see what they've got in mind for the Joker. I'm going to see the movie again this weekend.

I just took my little sister and her boyfriend to see it yesterday. They both liked it, and I liked it even more. Dude. Batman's cape-gliding awesomeness rocks my world.
