When I write about the "sad, deprived souls," I am NOT talking about my awesome blog followers. No, I am referring to the people who continually give Batman: The Movie (1966) bad reviews and talk about its idiocy and lack of plot.....on and on and on....
Clearly, these people (and there are so many of them) have trouble identifying satire. Because Batman is brilliant, Wowzie Kazam, stupendously amazingly cool satire.
There is no possible way a film that includes exploding sharks, emergency Bat-copter landings at foam mattress conventions, the entire Security Council at the pseudo-U.N. getting disintegrated, and heroic "almost-human" porpoises -- COULD NOT BE COMPLETELY GENIUS.
Which also brings me to another point: Stop telling me that "a little camp goes a long way!" (This phrase is in many even-basically-sympathetic reviews.) I have NO idea what you're talking about. ;-D
Or maybe I just understand this movie because it is dedicated to me?
"Lovers of the ridiculous and the bizarre"? That's definitely not me.
And speaking of this opening title, HOW DO PEOPLE STILL NOT UNDERSTAND WHAT THEY ARE WATCHING AFTER READING THAT?!
There is an IMDb review where someone questions whether, maybe, the film was actually just supposed to be funny.
No, it was definitely Christopher Nolan's inspiration for The Dark Knight, genius.
Is anyone else amused by the fact that I am writing an idiotic, non-nonsensical post at 1 AM just to ridicule people who think that Batman: The Movie is idiotic and makes no sense? OH, WE'RE THE COOL PEOPLE HERE AT CLASSICFOREVER. ;-D
Anyway, those sad, deprived souls who simply cannot comprehend the awe-inspiring power of Batman -- it is for them that I shall write and publish my magnum opus on Mind-Smushing Entertainment.* I've already got two people who are planning on reading it: me and also Marya PROMISED she would read it. haha
So yeah. It's gonna be great, guys.
I think I'm just gonna go now. ;-D
*The Definitive Guide to Mind-Smushing Entertainment still has not found its publisher yet.
It also needs to be written. But it WILL happen! It will. ;-D
