Re: Am I the only one who feels like B'89 is vastly overrated?
I actually think '89 is underrated. That film has some epic shots - the shot of bats the first time we see him, coming down with his cape spread behind the two thugs; Joker taking his hat off and shooting Grisham; Batmobile racing along an empty road, blowing leafs, the score epic and operatic. I could go on, but with the visuals and the score, the way Keaton was very intense as Batman and Bruce Wayne, the way Jack played Joker, the way it blew EVERYbody away because they were all expecting camp and corny . . . it's a spectacular film.
There is one Batman film that is overrated, but it isn't Batman '89.
HUMAN BEAN JUICE.
