That's exactly how I feel. I could pick apart a lot of the writing all day, but I have very strong childhood memories of the movie. It's the first Batman movie I ever saw in theaters, and honestly it was one of the first major Batman things I remember experiencing. It had that eerie, creepy allure to it and The Penguin was a truly grotesque monster that popped up in more than a few of my nightmares. It had a real visceral hold on me as a child and I credit it as one of my formative Batman experiences....even though now I don't see it as anywhere near my ideal depiction of Batman.
