I don’t think it is a secret that I have some issues with the Christopher Nolan Batman films. There are parts of those movies that I like and there are parts that I really don’t like. Recently I sat down with my friend Donovan Morgan Grant (he of BatmanUniverse.net, Spider-Man Crawlspace and The Next Dimension: A DragonBall Z Podcast fame) to have a spirited debate about the pros and cons of the Nolan Trilogy. In the first part we begin (no pun intended) by discussing fandom in general and then make our way into Batman Begins.
Just to be clear; these episodes are not three hours or me complaining about the films while Don defends them. If you are going into this expecting me to just rip the movies to shreds you are going to be disappointed. I tried my best to be fair with my criticisms and honest about what parts of the films I actually liked. I’d also like to thank Don for not only coming on to the show to talk about the Nolan Trilogy but also sending me my copy of Dark Knight Rises, which was mighty keen of him as I did not want to pay money for it.
Next time: Mike “vs” The Nolan Films Part 2! Coming in a just a few, short days!
