Found the batman to be quite disappointing too, especially after the entertaining first half.
The scene where he is in the hospital with Alfred really made me laugh, terrible acting.
Second half doesn't make any sense whatsoever. Batman is suddenly virtually indestructable, the presidential candidate takes a sniper bullet to the chest but shrugs it off, some nonsense about the renewal program, a whole metropolis hiding in a stadium, etc etc. It's fantasy for sure but they really stretch your suspension of disbelief with this one.

The film duration alone puts me off going cinema to see it. Batman movies been done to death already too.

Miles Teller was pretty great in Too Old to Die Young, but that show was a very acquired taste, not sure if I even enjoyed all of it.

I enjoyed the new Batman. I've barely seen any superhero films in the last however long so I'm not very precious about this kind of thing - my main criteria is entertainment and I got that, it was a laugh. Enjoyed the noir style, thought the emo Pattinson vibe suits the tone of the franchise. The last third was daft as hell, but I'm not sure how much I minded, it didn't drag for me.
Really worth getting down to see Boiling Point. I haven't seen anyone mention it here but it's a 90 minute flick set in a Dalston restaurant, all in one continuous shot and starring the inimitable Stephen Graham. I think it's still about in some London cinemas because of the local connection, get on it.
Apart from that I've basically watched the first three Jackass films and, on the subject of superhero films, the original Sam Raimi Spiderman, which has aged majestically. The colours of it just pop, and Willem Dafoe is unreal as per.

Thought 'The Lost Daughter' was class.
Olivia Colman is brilliant in it.

Boiling Point - loved it. Filmed in one shot, one of my favourites films of this year already

Boiling point impressive but some of the characters annoying af.

Boiling point great, but not as impressive one shot as Victoria. More realistic culinary film than say Chef, however.

Two very different feelings when watching both films.
Boiling Point felt claustrophobic and uneasy.
