Does anyone remember the one actor who got cast as Batman, and immediately had everyone raving about what a brilliant choice he was and how he would be the definitive screen Batman?

It was George Clooney.

Not saying Pattinson will be prove to be a great choice by any means, but Batman's one of those roles where you don't get an idea of how good the actor is until you actually see them in the cape and cowl.

Ah, yes, the big Valentine's Day movie next year is going to be... Sonic the Hedgehog. Sorry Mr. Director, but Paramount clearly realised they had a stinker on their hands, and decided to dump it in among all the romcoms that'll be coming out around that time.

@Barighm: Except that they actually DID show Picard becoming a wine maker in his senior years in the last episode of TNG. Admittedly that was in a future that didn't actually come to pass... but then, the death of his elder brother (who actually did run the family vineyard) in Generations probably threw a whole boatload of other psychological issues into the mix.

Please, hating on The Phantom Menace is so early 2000s. I think you'll find many, if not most Star Wars fans now accept it was an overall very decent movie that admittedly suffered a couple of major flaws (Jake Lloyd's acting, and Jar Jar) and struggled to live up to impossibly high expectations.

@gusbr: And you know it runs at 720p 30fps... how, exactly? Bearing in mind that the article specifically says they don't know if it's based on the PS2 version, the PS3/360 port, or something else entirely.

So, they tried for Batman Begins, and instead ended up with Fant4stic. Why am I not surprised?

Sounds like it was a scam anyway. I actually do some video effects work for a living; I could probably edit out that rat myself in just a couple of hours, and I can tell you I would NOT charge $4,000, or anything even close to that!

@uninspiredcup: I actually do agree that Infinity War was the better movie compared to Black Panther. That being said, you don't really need to be familiar with the MCU to follow Black Panther, whereas Infinity War would probably be much harder for a casual movie-goer to follow, so I can sorta understand why they'd have given the Best Picture nomination to the former over the latter.
