Here in Portland, Siskel & Ebert were on Channel 2 at 11:35pm every Sunday. Agree with them or not, they brought film conversation to the masses. Here is our weekly tribute to the two legends.

    Somewhere in between the 2 on this one, but, closer to Ebert. The one thing I clearly remember thinking while watching it was: “Where are all the people?!” For what is supposed to be a teaming metropolis, Gotham City seemed awfully sparsely populated. Crowd CGI wasn’t perfected yet, so maybe they just didn’t want to pay that many extras. Or, they figured everybody would be so awed by the sets and sfx that they wouldn’t notice.

      I am not sure why, but I connected more to this film and BATMAN RETURNS more than I ever did with the Nolan films. Not to take anything away from what Nolan did for this franchise.
