Re: The Official Batman (1989) Thread - Part 3
It's more gothic and macabre so it has this feeling of being darker or more depressing. But it's much more comical, campier. Batman 89 felt like Gotham City. Batman Returns was like Keaton's Batman was literally planted in Edward Scissorhands or Nightmare Before Christmas' universe like WHERE THE **** AM I? Yuh got women being brought back to life as acrobatic cats! Sewer dudes with flipper hands and black goo oozing out of their mouth! Our pets heads are fallin off! It's anarchy!!
"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
