The nior, soundtrack, atmosphere, and science fiction are so top notch in this film. I always find myself running this one back. Ridley was in his bag.

The Batman is a true noir masterpiece with influences that can be felt from the opening shot. So many beautiful shots of Gotham that really can only be experienced in theater. The muscle-car-inspired Batmobile is the coolest thing to ever exist.
