Nice list BB.
Also, your thoughts on the Fake Two-Face issue? And, about the scene where Bruce sees hta nightmare and all... Well?
a good idea but, I'm just wondering how it could be pulled off. After seeing this thread and, posting to it I watched BF again ... mostly to see where I missed the mcdonalds that you brought up. I only saw a yellow m in the backround in the alley scene, is that it? Anyways, it would be hard to pull off seeing as there's times where "Harvey" is said so fast with another line that even if you did edit it out you might miss a little of the word and, it would come out as "What do you want Har.." It would be nice to see though if it is possible throughout the movie.
The nightmare scene is a good idea too and, I could tottally see it happening from an editors point of view.
B89 has bats in the Batcave prominently. Batman even describes them as "great survivors", and they're featured. Likewise, in BR they're heard and seen in small doses.
What I really mean is, insert some bat sounds and show some bats around the batcave - to keep with the previous films's feel of the bats being around the cave.
In small doses I agree but, whenever
the cave is present is a bit much. I'm just objecting to having bunches of bat's cluttering the backround for no reason other then to look cool is all.
Not a really serious suggestion, but I just feel McDonalds gives the film that merchandise feel evident in the opening of the Theatrical Cut, with the "drive-through" line (which if you noticed, I also suggest to be erased). No real reason, other than personal preference.
Ah, yeah, I agree on the "drive through" line. I guess it's just becuase, I'm one of those people that don't mind product placement in movies so long as it's not stupid (like the credit card scene in B&R). That I don't have a problem with a fast-food place in the backround for two seconds.

If your re-inserting the deleted Two-Face escape, I would keep the line "Kill the bat!" becuase, in the Escape scene it says on the wall "The Bat Must Die!" That's just me though....
Its not that I want to cut lines, I just feel the silliness should be toned down, and these lines have silliness all over them. Still, maybe Kill the Bat should stay.
Anyway, what did you think of the other changes I suggest?
I only mentioned it becuase, if you cut out both those lines Two-Face only says this "Puntual even for his own funeral. Boys!" *points to elevator and, they run and, shoot it.* Now, unless the goons have the power to read minds they just shot the elevator becuase, thier boss pointed at it. There has to be some
kind of order given.
Um, the other suggestions are good too. I'll just give my two cents on a few.
Cut out "Yikes...time's up" and "That's usually my line." Never made sense to me for Chase to say that to a complete (to her) stranger. Simply have him smirk and walk up to her and say "I'd love to stay and chat" and keep everything after that.
Eh, she's a psycharitrist and, says "Time's up" to all her patients. Probably just caught her off guard that he's the one saying it. It would suprise me if she said it to someone she knew. I don't really care either way on these lines though.
Cut out Nygma's "Huh!!!" and "Hang on!" and him running towards Stickley. Its pointless to full he's conscious, since he's going to kill him anyway. Instead, have Stickley being terrified by the fall and Nygma simply come before him and say "Ed babe, you are fired, or should I say terminated?"
I always thought that he was just worried that his invention was gonna go to. I don't really care either way on these lines though.
I'm surprised nobody mentioned this, but why does Gordon light up the Bat-signal?
