    Batman Returns

    ★★★★

    So as a kid, this was always my favourite Batman movie (this goes back to before any the Nolan movies), and used to watch it along with the other Burton/Schumacher Batman movies. Since The Dark Knight came out I maybe saw this movie once or twice, but it still held a fond place in my heart.

    "Woody Allen famously wanted to call it "Anhedonia", the clinical inability to experience happiness—funny for a film that gives us so much pleasure".
