American Psycho 2 and Batman

OK, I guess I'll try to recreate the amazing post I wrote two nights ago about American Psycho 2 and Batman. I can assure you now, however, that whatever I write now will not be nearly as insightful as what I wrote two days ago. What I wrote Saturday night was simply brilliant. What I'll be writing tonight is sub-par. You'll just have to deal with it.

I can't believe that I was unable to rip myself away from watching American Psycho 2: All American Girl Sunday evening. The movie is simply terrible. It's not terrible in the way movies like Jack Frost are -- i.e., so terrible that they're enjoyable. No, American Psycho 2: All American Girl is simply too terrible to watch. Yet, somehow I found myself sucked into the movie, unable to tear myself away. I should have known from the beginning that the movie was going to be extremely terrible, when they killed off Patrick Bateman (the character played by Christian Bale in the original American Psycho) approximately 90 seconds into the movie. And on top of that, William Shatner plays a large role in American Psycho 2: All American Girl. You throw all that together in a movie and you're bound to get a big pile of rubbish. And that's exactly what American Psycho 2: All American Girl was -- a big pile of rubbish.

There was one good thing watching American Psycho 2: All American Girl. It reminded me of American Psycho, which starred Christian Bale. What's so great about that? It reminded me that Christian Bale is scheduled to be the next Batman. Unlike recent forays in the Batman franchise (which have been rather poor) Batman: Intimidation promises to be quite good. From what I've seen so far, it's to based on Frank Miller's work in Batman: Year One with a little bit of Mike Barr's Batman: Year Two thrown in for good measure. The work that Frank Miller did with Batman was some of the best work that Miller has done and was some of the best work that his hit the Batman franchise ever. I highly recommend, for example, The Dark Knight Returns, which is perhaps the greatest graphic novel ever written. Although I don't own it myself, I feel confident in recommending The Complete Frank Miller Batman as well.
