    Batman has always been just a warm up for Batman Returns for me

    Michael Keaton is the best Batman. And I'm someone under the age of 30 saying this.

    Every time I watch this, I can't give it the full five stars because of some weak points in the script. Being a fan of the comics, certain contrivances just rub me the wrong way. But Tim Burton's style is impeccable. His Gotham is a blend of bizarre Gothic overtones, '40 gangster fashion, and '80s silliness.

    Jack Nicholson is fantastic as The Joker. He…

    The film that would kick start everything we are living in today, as far as the modern super hero film goes. By the time this film came to light the Superman films have already had 4 installments, each one worse than the last. Burton's 1989 Batman was also a re-invention of the characters himself. For 20 years previous to this release, most peoples percetption of Batman was a campy, goofy Batman in the shadow of the Adam West 1966 TV…

    Michael Keaton remains to be the definitive Batman/Bruce Wayne for me. Great performances from the cast which includes Jack Nicholson as the Joker.

    The ultra gritty style of contemporary superhero films makes this seem very dated but I love the art-deco inspired Gotham. Nice to see some world building and fantasy.

    Burton succeeds in creating a very atmospheric movie with a great gothic stylization. Beautiful dark photography. Story is somewhat thin and the inner struggle of Bruce Wayne/Batman never comes to full life in this adaptation. Not all that interesting to follow for two hours. Action is somewhat clunky. Luckily all that gets a lot better fleshed out and done in Batman Returns. The Joker with a inevetable comparison to Ledger's role in the Dark Knight is done really well. I…

    What's to say that hasn't been said? Nicholson is fantastic. Keaton made a great Batman and a mediocre Bruce Wayne. Basinger is stunning and the love story is atrocious. Michael Gough will always be my favorite Alfred. I will always love this movie.

    Just as important in the annuals of blockbuster cinema history as Spielberg's JAWS (1975) and Lucas' STAR WARS (1977). While the film gets narratively sloppy in the back half of the film, you can't deny the sheer entertaining confidence this picture has. For some, it might not be the "correct" interpretation of the greatest of the superheroes, but it is a valid interpretation.

    Time has proven that this is not my favorite Batman film (hell, it's not my favorite Burton…

    This movie felt like one of the greatest superhero movies of all time to me back when I was a kid. I mean, seriously it is pretty great, and by just 15 years ago or so, I'd say it was the best. When I watch it, I think of Six Flags. Just think about how big of a deal this movie was for the superhero genre. We had Superman, which had been great, but then it progressed into terrible after…

    A lot of fun this one. All the trench-coats and hats gives it a 1940s feel at times. Good action and production with a great cast. One of the better Batman movies. But one small thing...I think its a shame we never got to see Billy Dee Williams as Two-face. That could have been good.

    I have trouble remembering phone numbers, but I can still remember big chunks of dialogue from this film.

    Love that joker. I get a grin again and again.
