Default Re: The Official Batman Returns Thread - Part 2

Batman '89 is a brilliant film. It has been so ripped off that its original qualities are sometimes missed by first time viewers, but a lot of the atmosphere that people instinctively associate with Batman was crystallized in that movie. The Art Deco/Gothic design was really striking, the score was seminal, and Keaton's Batman is much more convincing than Bale's broody cipher, really.
