Reboot standoff! I know everyone loves the new BATMAN, but I can't take it as seriously as the filmmakers seem to. All about STAR TREK's humor.
Star Trek for me, but I loved Begins.
Clash of the reboots. I love Star Trek, and Abrams' is the best to come down the line since 1996. Nolan, though, was able to make me forget I was watching a superhero movie for the first 40 minutes of Batman Begins. At heart, both films center on angry young men who've lost their fathers, and Batman does it better.
Wow, I can't believe it's taken so long for me to come to this match up, and I've never even considered it. I love Batman Begins; I'm consistently surprised that it doesn't even rank in my Top 50. I could never vote J.J.'s Star Trek over The Dark Knight, but I think I will choose it here. I'm a big Trekkie at heart, and they did a fantastic job rebooting an admittedly dying franchise.
Motherfucker.... this really depends on my mood, and I'm out of my Vulcan mind right now, so....
Batman Begins felt more like an authentic Batman film for me. Star Trek, at times, made me think I was watching cosplay.
Both are essentially entertainment films, even in if Batman Begins takes itself a bit seriously at times. And while it's hard to say why objectively, I found Star Trek more entertaining. Maybe BECAUSE it doesn't take itself seriously. Plus, it's way more fun to watch Kirk and Spock bond and struggle with each other than it is to watch Batman struggle with himself, whatever innuendo that may insinuate...
2 movies that seem to fly by every time i sit down to watch them.
The scene with Leonard Nimoy in the icy cave is the one bit I'd have changed in "Star Trek" ... and the one thing I would have changed in "Batman Begins" is the inclusion of a certain Katie Holmes. I'll go with "Star Trek," though they're both among the best summer blockbusters. Loved the re-imagining of Scarecrow.
