    Unpleasant, until it becomes repugnant, and then it just ends. The soundtrack deserves a better movie.

    ★★½

    The conflict sucks. The villain sucks. Everything is a reference without any relevance. Why is every song on the soundtrack from the 80s? Why does the movie figure its own shit out in the middle with that one extended sequence that's actually good and then it stops doing that and goes back to references without relevance? Was the girl supposed to be seen as "plain" because she was quite the opposite. I'm a fan of nostalgia and this movie just made me hate nostalgia.

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

    ★★★★½

    Superior in every conceivable way to the first Michael Keaton BATMAN. 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.
