    There is really no denying that this superhero film is one of the most significant in the genre. In fact, I think it is fair to say that without Burton's Batman we wouldn't have the rich comic book movie universe we have today. This film came out just before the advent of advanced CGI in the early nineties. The success of this coupled with advances in technology that would allow film makers to bring these heroes to life has ushered…

    One of the greatest superhero/comic book films ever made. Tim Burton's Batman is a fantastic film with great action and acting, as well giving an amazing performance from Jack Nicholson as The Joker.

    I originally tried to watch this with commentary by Kevin Smith and Marc Bernardin, but I couldn't help but tune in and out of it because I found myself paying more attention to the film instead of listening to the commentary. I was so engrossed in the spectacle of this film that I occasionally had to turn the commentary off and give the film my undivided attention.

    Man, this film is awesome.

    I haven't seen it in ages, but I'm…

    The Joker is the only great thing about this movie, much like The Dark Knight. I had no idea what to expect from Tim Burton's Batman, and it is from even that. There is not really anything, save for the incredible set design, that has the Tim Burton Seal, if you will. The casting of Michael Keaton as Batman was as perplexing as the character of Bruce Wayne himself.

    The character of Bruce Wayne, along with Batman, was so shallow,…

    Relieving the crap rom-coms usually shown at my gym was this landmark in tentpole filmmaking, which I enjoy revisiting every so often. I first saw it on laserdisc in Hong Kong in the fall of 1989; by the time it hit theaters there, which was Chinese New Year of 1990, it had no audience, as everyone had already seen it on LD and VHS. Lesson learned, Hollywood blockbusters soon began turning up day and date, more or less, around the…

    Batman kills! Nice! Burton's style is all over this one, and that's a good thing in my eyes. I'm not a fan of the coincidental Joker killing Bruce Wayne's parents. Or should I say Jack Napier? ehhhh, giving the Joker an identity kinda takes away a lot of what makes the Joker so unique and awesome. Regardless, Keaton is one of my favorite actors to play Batman, and I still really like this film.

    A bit camp by today's standards, but a lot of fun nonetheless.

    "You ever dance with the devil in the pale moonlight?"- The Joker

    This is my second viewing of Tim Burton's original Batman film and to be honest I didn't like it as much as the first time. I still mostly enjoyed it, but I feel that the pacing isn't great and the characters aren't very defined. That's one of the big reasons why I prefer Nolan's films, because the characters just feel so much more real.

    Also, while Jack Nicholson…
