Re: Did anyone see 1989's movie in theaters?
I saw Batman 89 as a video rental at first. Thought it was so good, I went and saw Batman Returns in the theater. The 1989 Batman remains as one of my favorite movies, because both Keaton and Nicholson were at the top of their game in this movie (not to say that either one has slipped, because they're both fine actors). We're fortunate to be living in an era when a lot of great super hero movies are being released and we can attribute to this one right here. Nothing against the Superman movies starring Reeve, but there seemed to be a large gap of quality super hero movies that were released after Superman II. In comparison, I think the Batman movies were all good, even the weakest entry....Batman, George Clooney style.
