That Batman joke depends entirely on the delivery and context. Funny though the grimdark fanboys are so petrified of Batman making jokes.

That 66 Batman movie is intentionally hilarious, it's gold.

Some of my favorite moments:

Question about vigilantism.

Discovering who is the criminal mastermind of the story.

Admiral Fang: "Your tone sounds rather grim. We haven't done anything wrong, have we?"
Batman: "Disposing a full atomic submarine to a person who doesn't even leave their full addresses? Good day, Admiral."

Riddles and Robin's wacky answers.

Penguin talking to Catwoman about the sweeping of dehydrated guinea pigs: "Careful, they have mothers"
Imagine if Arkham City had this version of Penguin instead of "He put a bottle in my eye, I plucked his eyes out".

Bruce Wayne vs the gang.

The whole ordeal with the bomb.

Penguin's disguise.

......

The entire thing is amazing.

10/10

That's some desperate trolling.

For proof positive of this ask anyone on the street what people think of Catwoman, they will either remember Michelle Pfeiffer, or Julie Newmar, and when you say, "what about Anne Hathaway", most of the time you will get a "she was catwoman?" as a reply.

60's Batman series is just sublime. One of my favorite iterations of Batman. It's thanks to that show that so many people knew Batman and his villains.

Bit of trivia, but that line Penguin made about the henchmen having mothers, Burgess Meredith ad libbed that line. Lee Meriwether said she had to control herself not to burst out laughing when he said it.

She talks about it here; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3T2gE76JEX8&t=21m40s

That's interesting. I'm not exactly sure when BvS came out on DVD (I'm sure others or you can give the exact date) but let's say it was last September. So in the course of around 6 months (180 days) you have watched it over a hundred times. That's close to every other day. My favorite movie of all time is STAR WARS: Episode IV A NEW HOPE....I have maybe seen it a 100 times over the course of 40 years. I tend to watch a lot of movies and TV, and I also tend to go for variety.

Here is some of what I have watched since September of last year -

Interesting, so you pretty much watch a film a day. I was trying to do that months ago. Just couldn't keep it going after a while. I would love to though!

It's no 2005 King Kong. But I had a fun enough time.

I can't help but feel that our friend batfreak has slightly exaggerated his total viewings of Beavis.

Unless of course he can provide us with proof of this

Yeah... my main memory of King Kong (2005) was that it was long and I saw it in the comfort of my own home on DVD. So many pauses.

the only thing I vividly remember from Kong 2005 is Andy Serkis' death scene

that still has me all messed up.

Kong Skull Island was so much fun. As much as I appreciate Peter Jackson's love letter to the original (and even the 70s Kong movie) this did something different. It succeeded as a Kaiju movie with a big budget. It's what I wanted out of the 2014 Godzilla movie.

This board is being watched by over 40 people. This movie came out half a decade ago. The Batman comes out in the future. It's being viewed by about 10.. Just found that funny.

We have a tight knit community round these here parts

A family, as Vin Diesel would say. And there's nothing more important than family, as we all know.

I actually feel the opposite. I thought Godzilla was mediocre but i enjoyed the Godzilla scenes more than the Kong scenes which felt like they had nothing new to offer. At least the buildup in Godzilla was more effective.

I was sooo bored throughout Skull Island. Only laughed a couple of times at Reilly (that line about the ants was hilarious). Every character was cardboard. Zero development, zero chemistry, a total waste of John Goodman and Brie Larson (who is given nothing to do but smile a few times and look stunned at the camera). Hiddleston was boring. Sam Jackson was just playing himself as he usually does when he's doing a paycheck movie. John Goodman of all people was made to look like a bad actor. At least Bryan Cranston's acting was better than these stiff cardboard cutouts that i was watching in K:SI. Geeeeez.

Bad writing, bad CGI besides a good looking Kong, boring action with Kong that added nothing new, no heart in this movie, shoving 70's rock tunes down our throats every 3 seconds to make sure that the audience understands "WE'RE IN THE 70'S! REMEMBER!?"

Larry Fong did his best but it wasn't enough. This movie had no creativity. All recycled tropes that you expect from scene to scene. I heard going into it that the dialogue was reaaally bad, and i shrugged it off. But they weren't exaggerating. Like, i want fun but it doesn't have to be so dumbed down with an obvious lack of effort. They get paid to recycle lines that we've heard from every b-movie imaginable?

HR did a best superhero performances list. Bale was 22, Keaton made the top ten.

Let's be real: Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman was the highlight of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. In a movie centered around an absurdly macho conflict between two supermen, it was Wonder Woman who was the most interesting hero (and the one who was most on-model from her comic book inspiration: no Ben Affleck grouchiness or Henry Cavill grimace here). Gadot managed to be mysterious, funny and — best of all — tough as hell. It had taken far too long to bring the most high profile female superhero of them all to the big screen, but when Gadot dropped into frame dressed as Wonder Woman for the first time, it almost seemed worth the wait. With Gadot being the first female superhero to topline a movie in a decade, as well as a turn in Justice League coming in November, she’s only on the rise.

LMAO, I definitely think that list is messed up on a few levels.
