Catwoman's line is VERY apt. There is a breaking point, and people on one side don't seem to know how perilously close to it they are.
Many of the issues I deliberately mentioned may still be modern day problems, but modern day problems in non-Western countries. Gotham City is supposed to be a metropolitan in the U.S.

And the assumption that I would agree with that statement is absurd. Besides the fact it makes no logical sense, on a personal level, I'm a firm believer in an equal flat tax for all economic classes.

So the comment, "Live so large and leave so little for the rest of us", would be something I would agree with, if they were physically or bureaucratically taking capital from lower-middle class people, but seeing how as a social class (not individual members of that economic group) that is not the case, I can't agree.

Edit: I apologize, I forgot I had mentioned regulated economies. Regulated economics is one of the reasons why both the U.S. and Western Europe are having so many financial problems as is, not to mention the loss of individual fiscal responsibility, but not even a fraction close to the extent of the problems during the 19th century, not to mention 19th century England. So even a slight resemblance between the two would be illogical.

The film continues to look like the classiest comic book adaptation to beat this summer.

Huge props to WB for not whoring out their film to sell motorcycles and happy meals and everything in between.

Stay classy.

Vintage Catwoman looks fine. Retro Batman looks goofy. There's a big difference.

Sometimes we hear of people who are “very” honest, “mostly” honest, or even “a little” honest.
Should we even use modifiers with the word honest? I don’t believe so. There are no degrees of honesty. Either we are honest or we aren't.

This is exactly what she's talking about. If you think "it's all cool" she's probably talking to you. Won't be long before there are more voices like hers. The movie per the trailer is not far off the mark for exactly what's bubbling under the surface now.

They both look "goofy" regardless of era.

A domino mask, Catwoman? Really? Who is that going to fool?
I need to stop buying so many movies and not getting around to watching them.

"This is not what democracy looks like" - lol

Democracy has nothing to do with how goods and capital is distributed, except in the case of collective economies, which the United States has and hopefully never will be (with the increase support for leftist thought in this country, however, it may be more of a possibility then one would imagine). Not to mention that I think it's quite obvious with socialism's history, the majority democratically making national economic decisions was only in theory and not in practice in countries that choose to stray away from free market practices because of the same thinking people who read charts like that accept.
