Coyote Musings
Coyote handsome
his coat the same brown
as the dust from which he rises


What is the sound of one hand slapping Schroedinger's cat?


The Quantum Duck goes "quark, quark."

Missing Left Sock Beast [userpic]
More Batman Thoughts

Things I realized last night:

In thinking over the movie, it might have been Dent/Two Face who wanted the man who let the Joker slip his leash, but either way I think my rampant speculation stands.

Also, when I go back and see it again I need to watch even more closely for parallels - I can think of at least two (Joker and Rachael:Batman and the SWAT member; and Scarecrow identifying Batman:Joker identifying Batman) but I'm willing to bet there are a lot more. And a lot more dualities in people's personalities and interactions. And the way Batman and Bruce Wayne were starting to bleed together (yes, this sentence is somewhat ambiguous, but I'm leaving it. Parse it as you will).

Explain, pretty please, and clarify for this one who didn't see Batman Begins

I just saw the movie, but maybe it is because it is too soon...

What do you mean by parallels?

And who is Scarecrow, and what role he played in this movie (and the previous one)?


Parallels: well, it's easier to give examples, but what I mean is the way that the characters actions parallel each other.

For example, Spoiler, so go here for a key Va gur Shaqenvfre fprar, gur Wbxre unf n ubfgntr (Enpury) jub ur vf ubyqvat bhg n jvaqbj naq qebcf.

Scarecrow is the guy with the burlap bag over his face, the one selling drugs to the Russian that were having a bad effect on his "clients." In the first movie, he's a Gotham City psychologist and an underling of Ra's Al Ghul/the League of Shadows, and you really should rent Batman Begins. :)

I'm sorry, but I click on the link and get redirected to your page... and I cannot find anything about a key. :( Where is it?

Oops! I forgot to paste the link in my code.

go here.

Sorry about that.

Thanks, got it! Interesting... you were looking more in depth (in a sense) than me... all I saw (simplified):

"Weee! Pretty pictures and awesome explosions and pencils on the head!!! And puppies!!!" ;)

Yeah, well, don't feel too bad (or different) - that pretty much describes what I saw during my first viewing. :)
