Default Re: Mask Of The Phantasm Appreciation Thread

I love Mask Of the Phantasm!

One of the best Batman movies of all time ,imo...i rate it right alongside Batman '89, and Batman Begins.

So much emotion in this movie....from the opening theme, to Bruce pleading with his parent's at their monument, to Bruce donning the cape and cowl for the first time (and Alfred's shocked response!) Batman and Joker's confrontation, all the way to Bruce and Alfred's talk at the end.

This movie really captures the feeling of loss so often associated with the character. Going back to that scene when Bruce first dons the Bat costume and stalks off into the just strikes me as so tragic. he was SO close to finding happiness, only to have it snatched away (or so he thought at the time)...

BMOTP is one of my most beloved Batman collectibles..a true MUST for any and all Bat fans, imo.
