I agree wholeheartedly with Rex. The movie was pure crap.

Be sure to talk about the film and not about yourself.

"Batman Begins is for morons" says the guy who thinks Begins is a prequel.

It's not a prequel. It's a reboot.

No, it was prequel until it did well enough that the studio got greedy and decided to make another one.

No you moron! Watch Batman Begins and Batman(1989) back-to-back and tell me if it makes any sense for this to be a prequel of Burton's Batman.

@ w@velength
Yeah, cause it would all line up if TDK din't exist... You know like how Joe Chill killed Bruce's parents and then ended up dead, and in Batman '89 the Joker was the one who killed them, it was definitely meant to be a prequel...

(There are so many other contradictions, that is just one obvious one...)

woohoo you're 13, I could be 85 and it wouldn't make a difference. If you were 3 or 4, maybe your age would be a factor.

How are any morons like him "critics" to begin with? I feel RottenTomatoes is a fucking joke when it comes to some of the people they hire.

for morons? Go watch your Barney show again, and leave the films for REAL critics

Probably not the wisest choice of words for your quote.

Mark Post

Holy crap, Rex. I mean seriously. How can you not recognize excellent writing and acting like what is shown here?

blake mooney

What a douche bag. Batman Begins is THE best super hero movie ever made. No question.

You're a freakin' moron. You think the people who liked it are? Just because it's a superhero movie with a compelling and dark story with heart, action and acting in it doesn't mean it's for morons. Notice how those traits make a good film in the first place.

It's one thing to insult a movie, quite another to insult the people who enjoyed the movie. His quote is a bit of a school yard insult, not very becoming of a professional writer.

Could not have said it better myself.
It doesn't matter if the movie is good or not really. But his review is completely unprofessional

Oh my God, does this guy have balls! **** for brains, **** for taste, ****ty opinion, ****ty writing skills, and a ****ty name, but balls nonetheless. Fortunately, we can all rest in the knowledge of what usually happens in life to someone of this description.

Jeff Pike

Calling people idiots over the internet does not mean you have balls. Going up to everyone as they come out of the theater and telling they were idiots for seeing this movie would take more gusto.

I'd rather be a moron than an *******.
