Re: '78-'87 Superman series vs. '89-'97 Batman series
The only film out of those original Batman movies that I like is Batman Returns, but even so, I would still place that series well above above the Superman series. The first Batman movie was okay for it's time, but it feels very dated and just kind of boring. Same thing for the first two Superman movies. However, where the latter two Superman and Batman movies are all bad, the Batman movies are bad in way that you can laugh at and still get something out of them, whereas those Superman movies are just hot garbage.
