    Angel III: The Final Chapter

    ★½

    Well, there's no one in this from the first two films. Molly, studying to be a lawyer in part 2, is now a freelance photographer. And despite a great B-movie cast including Maud Adams, Richard Roundtree, Toni Basil and Dick Miller, it's a slog.


    End credits song is sung by Lou Rawls though. That's something!

    ★★

    Immediate sequel takes place five years later with half the cast replaced, which makes the nonstop reunion scenes very strange. A strong setup is squandered. Even less sleazy than the original and twice as zany... not sure that's what anyone wanted.

    The movie that's running on the monitors in the waiting rooms for Hell.

    Batman Returns

    ★★★★½

    Superior in every conceivable way to the first Michael Keaton BATMAN, and anyone who doesn't think so is out of their goddamned mind. Not only is Keaton perfect again, but so are Danny DeVito, Michelle Pfeiffer and Christopher Walken. The scene where Bruce Wayne and Selena Kyle discover each other's alter egos still gives me a rush, and I can't tell you how many times I say "You've got kind of a dark side, don't ya?" to other people. Great dynamics and themes going on all over the place in this one.
