Re: Am I the only one who feels like B'89 is vastly overrated?
Batman 89 isn't overrated, its one of the most groundbreaking films of the last 20 years, Does the film hold up well? Thats another question and is highly debatable, for me personally, no it doesn't. Its kinda like going back and watching Lugosi in Dracula or playing Goldeneye on the N64, great for its time, but VERY dated. I loved Keaton as Batman, loved the dark tone that Burton brought to it (and in my opinion Tim Burton brought Batman out of the 60s in the eyes of the general public) and I loved the score. What I hated was Jack Nicholson's Joker (flame away,) the Prince songs and nonsensical scenes like the batwing eclipsing the moon.
He's called "The Punisher", not " Family Man".
There is a huge difference between "I want to honor my loved ones" and "I hate criminals, and want to punish them".
That difference is called "Batman".- The Guard
