Batman Returns

Batman Returns ★★★½

If you're a freak like me, you will dig this.

Burton's zany gothic flair is perfectly suited to musical theater and comic book movies, and I kind of wish that's all he made.

Keaton's performance is boring and forgettable, but it doesn't matter when you have The Eggman himself, Danny Devito, playing The Penguin: a sewer-dwelling FUH-REAK with a cartoonishly creepy tophat and magical umbrella. Pfieffer also kills it as Catwoman and deserved a sequel.

Not that it matters but I need to call out how The Penguin's mutant hands really do resemble lobster claws and not flippers.
