  1. i agreed, christian bale is HOT, i never liked batman. but since chistian bale played as batman , it such a good movie, cant w8 for the 3rd one.

  2. The only two of these I haven't seen are 'Swing Kids' and 'Newsies'. Most of his movies are amazing, he is such a talented actor, and being hot doesn't hurt, so it's such a pity he was involved in the woeful 'Reign of Fire.'

    As they say in the classics, awful, just awful.

  3. Random Soliloquy on

    Christian Bale movies are generally a bot off-kilter. I think that's why he's hot, honestly. Sexy and dark and morbid…Yum.

  4. but who can forget his portrayal of demetrius in a midsummer night's dream?

    if that's not bizarre, what is?

  5. Tom Cruse ? , Tom Hanks ? Come on ….

    They don't even have any talent , they play every character at the same way .

    CHRISTIAN BALE ? He's such a great actor . No matter in what kind of movie he is

    playing , he's just always fantastic . One of the best actor ever . I LOVE him so much .

    I can't wait to see him in more movies .
