Default Re: The Official Batman Returns Thread - Part 2

Growing up with essentially both movies in the early 90's on video... the drastic shift in style never bothered me. I loved both and would pop one in depending on my mood.

However, I can understand people fuelled by hype and anxiously waiting for photos/trailers in 1991, being disappointed with the stark contrast. And even more so when the movie played out in theatres.

I do think the narrative is more compellling in Batman Returns purely for the monster movie and doomed loved aspects. It one great big tragedy.
