    There's no way that voice was Scottish, it was a perfect English accent. Sounded like Patrick Stewart, if you ask me. :holmes:

    Sean Connery barely has a Scottish accent in films :mmm: It had the same weird affectation that Connery has in his films, although I imagine the dialogue involving Bane will be redubbed for the DVD release as it is just a nothing for large portions of the film.

    Yeah, I thought the exact same thing because it reminded me of the X-Men!

    I'm kind of excited to see where they go with this Superman. I mean, it doesn't seem like they're going to take the typical route with regards to his behaviour and stuff, so it'll be interesting at least.

    Oh man, Beckinsale in Total Recall :coma: And while I'm not at all interested in Dredd atm, Lena Headey actually looks like she's done an amazing job in it.

    I've not heard it discussed a great deal, but I think Hardy's ability to speak in different voices and accents is extraordinary. In each of the five films I've seen him in - Bronson, Warrior, Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, Inception and The Dark Knight Rises - he's adopted a difference voice. This wasn't really made clear to me until I watched Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy - in that one, it's pretty drastically different from his others. Great skill for an actor to have, I'd say.

    So it is him who actually does the voice? I genuinely thought that someone else was doing it.

    A great skill then as you said.

    Joseph Gordon-Levitt has really come on from3rd Rock from the Sun. Basically the darling of the most powerful director in the industry at the moment. Should be interesting to see if either him or Bale pop up in Nolans next project as well.

    Btw, I was eavesdropping slightly on a conversation yesterday, but why do people go on about inception being ridiculously confusing and they can't get their heads around it :confused: People said the same about The Matrix and the original Mission Impossible. Is there something I'm missing or are people just saying it because the hype tells them to?

    Exactly! There are probably other films but those are the major ones I hear people whingeing about 'having to watch by themselves/confuse them/have to think about to understand' and other such nonsense.

    I am also saying this now so it is on the record.

    Tom Hardy will be the next James Bond.

    ...this may or may not be influenced by the fact I watched Inception last night

    I do think he would play a great Bond and I would go with that :yep:

    Nolan has said on record he's love to do a Bond film. So, yno, Hardy might be quite likely.

    Whilst that increases the likelihood of me being right, I'm not sure what I think of that. He'd 'Batman' Bond, so it'll be really dark. Daniel Craig's Bond is entertaining but I don't love it.

    I do love me some cheesy Bond

    The way DC plays Bond he is practically Batman without the suit. He fights in almost the exact same style and has quite similar speech mannerisms. Could easily be a cross between Wayne (with the ladies) and Batman (with the bad guys).

    On the Skyfall trailer, where Bond lands on the train with the motorbike and the motorbike is flipping over did anyone else think "Brosnan would have landed on that after the flip"? :mmm:

    The Kryptonite and generic power nerfing of superman across a single film annoys me as there is absolutely no consistency. It should be established pretty early on in the films what his physically limitations are as well as whether he can feel physical pain etc. The kryptonite annoyance stems from when he gets in pain from being within 10 feet of a tiny shard but can then lift an island created out of it...[/spoiler]
    I was about to bring this up in my complaints about the film but then I remembered he was powered up by the Sun and his journey through the Earth's core and then proceeded to enter a coma after lifting the island.

    Even with the Superman is like a battery and he absorbs the suns radiation, he still has a limit and lifting an island made of kryptonite is just ridiculous, it essentially renders his one weakness null and void.

    People were saying they were confused after the first Matrix :p:

    I'm ok with people being confused by poor writing and story lines but simple stories confusing people, confuses me :teeth:

    How so? All that happened at the end of the third Matrix was Neo venturing into the heart of machine city and defeating the 'Agent Smith' clones, apparently killing himself in the process.

    What was so difficult to understand about that? :unsure:
