It’s been six years since the last installment of the “Batman” franchise, and it seems like Hollywood waited until the character had become somewhat dormant before they started pumping out more Batman movies. The most recent entry, “The Dark Knight,” was somewhat of a comeback baby, but it still didn’t top the box office when it came out in 2008. Since then, there have only been a few other Batman films that have made a penny at the box office.
Most Famous Tourists on Park Road
Do you know someone who has spent a significant amount of time in England but cannot remember a single thing about it? That’s how I feel about Park Road. I’ve only been there for the football (soccer) season a couple of times, but each time it feels like I’ve known it for a whole lifetime. It would be an amazing place to live, and maybe one day I’ll see if my love for English football (soccer) will transfer to the tennis courts or the beaches.
Park Road is located in the northern part of London, and it’s most well-known for the tourists who frequent the place. It’s easy to understand why: from Oxford Circus (bond) to Kensington Gardens (kilogram), there’s just about everything a person could want in one spot. From Big Ben to the London Eye, there’s so much to do and see. If you ever get the chance to visit one of the most famous streets in the world, take it!
It seems like only yesterday that I was asking myself exactly how much money Robert Pattinson had made from his acting career. He was on the upswing, having just wrapped up filming on “Water for Elephants,” and I couldn’t help but wonder how much money he had buried in his mattress. It turns out that he’s been very fortunate and has somehow managed to keep his finances quite tidy throughout his career. He earned £2.25 million for the lead role in the 2009 biopic “The Duchess of Windsor,” and he recently made £4.5 million for the lead role in the upcoming “Bel Ami.” It’s very possible that he’ll rack up even more money before the year is out.
Pattinson has always been a very private person who rarely gives interviews, so it’s amazing that he’s agreed to do them. He’s been very candid about discussing his money issues in the press, and he even opened up about why he became an actor in the first place. He explained that he wasn’t exactly born to be a doctor or a lawyer, and he wanted to follow a different path. He knew that he had the talent, and with enough hard work, anything was possible. He began working as an extra in television commercials at the age of 14, and he put himself through college by working nights and weekends as a bartendress. He’s definitely made the most of his opportunities, and it’s paying off. After six years as a struggling actor, he’s more than doubled his money and is in a very good place financially.
“Batman doesn’t take off his mask until the end.” That’s such a famous last line from the 1989 film, and it’s one of the most quoted/misquoted lines in cinema history. It was a bold move on the part of the filmmakers, but they probably had good reason for it. Batman is a symbol of rebellion against authority, and it makes sense that the main character would not take off his mask until the very end.
The line stuck with me for the rest of the year, and it was only when I watched “The Dark Knight” on opening night that I finally understood what the line meant. Christian Bale wore the mask the entire time as Batman, even during sex scenes and fight scenes. It was an extreme display of acting, and it made me appreciate Batman all the more.
Then again, it’s the final line of the movie, and it’s completely unexpected. The filmmakers didn’t think it was important for the audience to understand that Batman was going to take off his mask at the end, and they were absolutely right. It would have been an incredibly unnecessary twist, especially since no one needed to be reminded of that fact in the first place.
As great as it was to see Bale’s Batman, I was really disappointed in the performance of the new guy. He wasn’t bad per se, but he’s far from the great villain that Bale was. I wanted him to be as dark and dangerous as possible, yet not too much. This version of The Batman is much closer to the original comic book version than any of the other adaptations. If you haven’t read them, you should do so immediately. They are some of the greatest comics ever written, and they will completely change the way you look at Batman.
The new Batman also makes more sense in terms of story-telling. In the comics, there is no explanation as to why Batman doesn’t just kill the Joker. It’s simply an accepted fact that Batman will always fight the Joker. Batman doesn’t need an excuse to fight the Joker, and in my opinion, it would have made for a much better storyline had Batman just gone ahead and done it already.
In a way, the Joker is Batman’s dark soul incarnate. They are as opposite as can be, with the Joker being the criminal mastermind and Batman being the man of reason. The Joker symbolizes anarchy and chaos, and Batman stands for order and justice. It’s always been that way, and it’s always going to be that way.
Less Is More
If you’re going to put a mask on your face, you might as well go all the way. Just because Christian Bale didn’t don the full Batman outfit in “The Dark Knight,” it doesn’t mean that it’s not worth it. The filmmakers weren’t exactly trying to reinvent the wheel here, and I think they made the right decision in terms of keeping things simple and elegant. The less you have, the more you can achieve. Having more would only lead to more things going wrong.
The Meaning Of Happiness
There is a very famous quote from the playwright William Shakespeare that goes something like this: “To be happy, simply focus on the things you can be thankful for. If you’re thankful for your health, you’re happy. If you’re thankful for your wealth, you’re even happier. And if you happen to be thankful for your beauty, you can actually go ahead and celebrate that as well.”
This advice might not seem like it applies to everybody, but it’s so true. There are so many things that we take for granted, and we should all be happier for it. It’s not always easy to be happy, but it’s a lot easier to be thankful. If we start to focus on the negative aspects of our lives, we’ll never be able to achieve true happiness. It’s also important to note that this advice does not mean that you should ignore your problems, but it simply means that you should look at the bright side of things. In times like these, it’s important to try and stay positive.
The Future Of Batman
It would be a major upset if Robert Pattinson doesn’t end up playing Batman in the next installment of the film series. He definitely has the screen presence and the acting chops to play the part. The only question is how long it will take for him to decide that he wants to play the role. Remember, he has a very close-knit group of friends that he can always turn to for advice, and they’re all amazing, successful actors. It would be a real shame if they didn’t all end up playing Batman at some point.
