Batman Analysis

I felt The Dark Knight was the most effective in entertaining me as an audience because it showed the collective personalities of people around us in a way that can be easily understood. For example, in this movie the main characters expressed their inner personalities in a form of a shadow. The shadow is irrational, and is the hidden side of a persona, in which it can contradict the way an individual believes himself to be. For instance, Batman assumes he is not as insane as Joker because he does not follow the same morals as Joker. However, Batman is also similar to Joker because; he also wears a mask to hide his identity, and intimidates people so they will follow his rules. Similarly, how joker also hides his identity, to enforce his rules, and morals to a society. Specifically, Batman focuses on the genuine goodness of the whole society, whereas, Joker motivates individual self-interest and altruism. In addition, Harvey Dent’s transformation into Two-Face shows what happens when one becomes the victim of the shadow’s impulses. For example, he has two faces, in which one of his faces is his own persona, and the other is the shadow. Moreover, he is the combination of Batman, and Joker. Overall, The Dark Knight symbolized the internal struggle in which individuals experience with their darker side, which made it successful in entertaining an audience. On the other hand, Batman 1989 was also similar to The Dark Knight in terms of Michael Keaton being the flip side of Joker. However, it did not convey the hidden personalities effectively to the audience. For example, in The Dark Knight Joker says, “You’re not one of them” to Batman implying that Batman is also similar to him. Batman 1989 lacked these parts, and it did not reach out to audience as The Dark Knight. On the other hand, Batman 1996 comically exaggerated Batman, and I felt it was very unrealistic. For example, it was more suited for younger kids because it was presented as a

    The best part of Batman Begins was its ending... and I'm not being sarcastic. As I was watching the last scene of the movie, I wanted to jump out of my seat and cheer when Jim Gordon handed Batman the Joker playing card. It's been a while since I reacted with such glee at the promise of a sequel (usually it's more of, "hay nako, may part two pa yan!"). Yes, the movie was that good. Without question this is the best Batman movie ever made. Finally we have a film adaptation that shows the essence…

    Batman: the Dark Knight Batman, the Dark Knight is full of underlying philosophy on society and life in many ways; I will focus on three of them: good versus evil, order versus chaos, and the theme of corruption. This film masterfully portrays a philosophic insight into selfish human behavior as a whole in society, while also giving an alternative perspective on the evil that lies in people just under a thin veneer of good ethics. The Dark Knight marvellously explores how very close to each…

    Scene Analysis The scene selected for analysis is from Batman Begins (2005), directed by Christopher Nolan. The reason why I chose to analyse this movie, is because it was one of the first films that made me appreciate film on a deeper level. Approaching the film as a whole, it is clear that this scene depicting the death of Bruce Wayne’s parents – Thomas and Martha Wayne – is vital to the story. It was, after all, Bruce’s resolve that resulted in Batman existing (McKay, 2011). This is where Batman…

    Supergirl comics were published in the late 1950’s, in an atmosphere that is considerably different from that in which Batman: The Dark Knight Returns was created. Supergirl comics were created in the post World War II setting, when Americans reverted to their traditional beliefs. In contrast, Batman; The Dark Knight Returns was created during the Cold War era of the late 1980’s, when tensions ran high between the two super powers; the Soviet Union and the United States of America.
