Gough's Alfred was far from terrible & the one thing I enjoyed the most about the movie was Arnold's Mr. Freeze & O'Donnell's Robin.

The problem with this movie is that there was way too much **** going on. Completely wipe out the Batgirl storyline from the movie (which was only there to sell more toys and get girls interested in Batman), tone down the villains, and lose some of the corny dialogue, and this had a legitimate chance to be GOOD.

There would have been more of an oppurtunity to focus on the Batman/Robin dynamic and the dying Alfredy plot thread, which was the strongest point in the movie, IMO.

Why, thank you.

As for Clooney, no, he was not the best Batman. However, I didn't think he was that bad as Bruce Wayne. His scenes with Alfred and when he has to convince Dick to trust him at the end aren't bad at all. Even some of his Batman scenes are decent. He obviously wasn't told to play the character all grim and gloomy. Batman seemed more conversational, which is how he was back in the 50s and 60s.

I see you point perfectly, like ive said before along with others, each film represents a different time or take out of batman comics.

Wow, this described another superhero movie that disappointed me. I could easily pluck out a few words and you described Spider-Man 3 perfectly (for me).

"The problem with this movie is that there was way too much **** going on. Completely wipe out the Venom storyline from the movie (which was only there to sell more toys and get people interested in Spider-Man), tone down the villains, and lose some of the corny dialogue, and this had a legitimate chance to be GOOD.

There would have been more of an opportunity to focus on the Spider-Man/Peter Parker dynamic and Sandman's dying daughter plot thread, which was the strongest point in the movie, IMO."


And people think I'm crazy for comparing the two.

No, I did the exact same thing in another thread. They both suffer from the same problems, except for SM3, I would choose to wipe out Sandman completely, leaving more room for the symbiote subplot, Harry as the New Goblin, and allow for more development and buildup for Venom.

Glorious, glad to see I'm not the only one...Honestly, I think the SHH Batman board should have a HUGE simultaneous screening of this movie...And allow all of us to rip on it throughout...Respectfully, of course...It's a great film- for what it is...Not to be taken as part of the dark, gloomy, serious Bat-world...

I'm half-watching it on TBS right now, just because I feel like having something in the background while I'm chatting with some friends on AIM. I haven't seen it in years, so why not remind myself of the ... Badness?

I have to say this though: Uma Thurman would have made a great Poison Ivy. I know that her acting in the film is WAY over the top, but I blame the directing for that.

Yes, her and Jim Carey were the two best casting decisions for BF and B&R

Doing the same thing as you...but honestly, her, O'Donnell, and Gough were the only ones who even pretended to be part of a major hollywood movie...the rest, just seemed like it was a Highschool production of 'Godspell' or something...Did not bring their A-Game...


This is just one of those movies, that define a chapter of your childhood or life, and no matter how much you want to hate them when you get older because of their obvious suckiness- you just can't help but enjoy it when they're on...

I agree...How is it that I cannot resist watching any of the Schumacher bat films whenever they come on? Bane is the only villain that he SERIOUSLY DESTROYED...the others were just misinterpreted...he had nuances of what they should've been, but just came up missing the bridge by a few feet...It annoys me that they changed Batgirl's origin though...Alfred's niece? Computer hacking identities?

Seriously-

BATGIRL: Bruce, it's ME!!!.....I found the batcave...

ROBIN: We have to kill her...

BATMAN: We have to save the city first, no time- we'll kill her later...


uhhhh...

I think that Schumacher should have re-written the script and recasted B&R. And I wish he would have looked at BTAS for inspiration.
