    Is batman forever cut as i`ve just seen the dvd with my son and bits seem to be cut.
    1. the part where jim carey pushes his boss out the window with the head piece on and then he has it it his hands.
    2.where two face falls to his death it seems one or two frames are missing from the fall to his hand.
    Does the R1 copy have a uncut verison or is it the same as we have

    Yes, the UK version is cut... the scenes were taken out in order for the film to recieve a PG rating. :rolleyes:

    The USA/R1 version is uncut - you must have seen this before...

    Let us also talk about the inconsistency that the neon explosion Schumaker fest brought us.

    For example, Two Face (Harvey Dent) being white, yet in the first Batman he is BLACK (played by Billy Dee Williams / Lando Calrisian).

    what the fudge is this all about?

    Discuss.

    Harvey Dent was a white guy in the comics so why they altered him in the first film I do not know but for the sake of continuity he should have been black in Batman Forever.

    The same with Catwoman is white in the comics and in Batman Returns yet the new film she is black, just because Halle Berry is the flavour of the month.

    Oh, and also because Warner Brothers are on crack.

    Have you seen the costume??? Laughable, to say the least.

    Somebody bring back Tim Burton and Michael Keaton.

    If you were familiar with Two Face and Catwoman throughout the history of Batman Comics, you would be aware that their background stories and characters have changed several times over the years. There were even two different Two Faces, for example.

    So if such radical re-interpretations of the characters occur, why on earth should changing the colour of their skin matter?

    And for your information Catwoman has been depicted as a black woman in DC Comics and portrayed by a black woman too (Eartha Kitt).

    From a previous post.

    Also Two Face was green on one side in the comics.
    All depends if you like continuity as near as possible,

    Because Tommy Lee Jones brings more people the cinema than Billy Dee Williams. Hence more money made for the studio.

    Although I prefer the tim burton batmans, and the 4th (batman and robin) is about as bad as cinema gets, the last two (forever and &robin) are actually truer to the comics than the first.

    is that a spanner in the works?

    I still think they should make a batman film on the knightsend/quest etc series

    I don’t know about that I thought since the sixties Batman has been going away from the World Fair sort of stories and moved towards the Dark Knight.

    One of the problems with the films were the producers seem to think more is better Batman seems to be the favourite of the four (albeit Batman Returns is mine) which had just one main villain in it. Yet the fourth had a plethora plus Robin and Bat Girl, Bane also was a major villain who came the closest to ending the knights career yet he was thrown away in the film.

    I sort of agree but Batman returns has two ? Penguin and catwoman...

    But Bane and the whole knightquest should be the next film project but from what i've heard it's a sort of prequel to his training etc and how he truely became batman.

    Although I do think Christian Bale could make a good Batman (but I thought Clooney would so what do I know,,)

    I thought he was superb in 'american psycho'. Hopefully he'll get to express some of that talent in the new batman.

    Doubt it. Batman has no personality anyway, in all the previous films and in the comics too. He's just dark, mysterious and mumbles a bit. The bad guys in these films really get to act.

    Thats why I said 'Batman seems to be the favourite of the four (albeit Batman Returns is mine) which had just one main villain in it.'
    The in brackets are to be read as a side comment, not to be read as part of the sentence.

    The second one was my fav too. I still haven't seen Batman and Robin because I'd rather have my eyes gouged out.

    I don't have a problem with a black woman playing Catwoman. I was making fun of the fact that the outfit looks stupid, and Halle Berry is a crap actress.

    As for Bale getting a chance to act, it depends on how much screen time Bruce Wayne gets. I still think Michael Keaton did the best job, because he shined as Wayne. As Batman, everyone was pretty much the same.

    Oh yeah, that was another stupid thing (thanks Schumaker), Bane as some random bad guy in Batman and Robin. Again, what the fudge was that all about?

    Noo.... just dont mention that film, I'm trying to erase the horror from my mind and have *nearly* succeeded.

    I'd rather watch highlander 2 5 times back to back than Batman and Robin once.

    Patrick Stewart should have been Mr Freeze but just as well he wasn’t as he may not have taken the role as Charles Xavier.

    I'm actually glad that image is a fake. It's hideous.
