Re: The Official Batman TAS Thread - Part 1
When something comes off too cartoony in a live-action film (besides comedies or older horror films) then I find it goofy and im just not a fan of that stuff. It was different when I was a kid. I loved the Burton films, especially Returns. But I never remembered a lot of that stuff. So in revisiting them as an adult, I can see what feels campy to me and what doesn't.
Yeah Returns is a loose sequel to 89. I don't mind that. It's a unique movie. I just find it more cartoony (in a dark gothic way) than Mask Of The Phantasm, and that's literally a cartoon. Go figure.
"Lets make one thing very clear here - Nolan's films are as faithful an adaptation as there is. It pays homage to its source material, remains true to its characters and above all else places the story first and foremost." - jmc
