    I'd put Bale top, followed by Keaton & Affleck, West was a completely different type of portrayal and doesn't really bear comparison
    Bale is easily the best actor of the group, followed by Keaton, but I was, in my own feeble way, attempting to compare movies and Batman portrayals rather than simply overall acting talent. This, despite the fact that my memory of movies frequently does not serve me well. I don't even remember Clooney or Kilmer as Batman. That doesn't necessarily mean I missed those movies, only that they weren't memorable. Also, at some point I lost interest in the endless string of Batman movies and ceased to spend money or time on them. Not entirely unlike when they kept shooting Spiderman remakes, after Sam Raimi did it right the first time.
    Can this be the swan song? The final elbow?

    My guess is that Clooney even hates those Batman movies.

    I keep Adam West separate. First of all movie was just a cash-in from the TV series and that Batman, while legitimate, was of its own time and place. Now if we rank all Batmans then you MUST include Kevin Conroy's incredible work in Batman: The Animated Series, not to mention Mark Hamill's turn as the Joker.

    Some old tweets (ca. 2009) by James Gunn have bubbled to the top of the diarrhea broth, and it's cost him another nice payday.

    Tweets from eight years ago cost you a job? This is getting ridiculous.

    Finally watched Dunkirk on HBO. I suppose on the IMAX screens it was overpowering but damn, even on a small screen the tension of this movie was incredible. At first I was wondering why Nolan was playing with the timelines but it all made sense by the third act. One of the best war films I've seen in a very long time.

    There is a Rocky extravaganza on pay tv today - I,II,III,IV, V and Rocky Balboa. The first one is still classic and a thoroughly enjoyable watch. I'm on 2 now that is much more cliched but still exciting in spots. Not sure how far I'll make it!!

    Finally got around to seeing the Netflix original movie Bright last night. I avoided it for a long time due to being irritated by their
    constant advertising of it. I should have just said no. First half was painfully boring, and the second half was only marginally better. Ugh!!

    Last night I randomly watched the first 35 minutes or so of Dario Argento’s “Inferno.” Visually interesting as usual with his films, and Emo’s score (which I’d forgotten about) is pretty good.

    Let us know if Rocky's accent stays consistent throughout.

    Watched A Fantastic Woman. It is a Spanish language movie (easy to follow with subtitles) about a transgender woman/nightclub singer/waitress whose older male lover dies, and the hate and suspicion she is shown by his family and the police after his death. Takes place in, and filmed in, Santiago, Chile. Daniela Vega is exceptional as the title character.
    Can this be the swan song? The final elbow?

    I recognized Ponce De Leon, Prognosis Negative, and Rochelle, Rochelle, which are all movies mentioned on Seinfeld. In other words, they're not real movies.
