In regards to All Star, Linkara said it best: it was not Batman, but a lunatic named Crazy Steve who took over the costume. At times, I have trouble accepting that the Frank Miller who wrote the waste of the millenium (Allstar, Holy Terror, TDKSA, and so on) was the same one who wrote something as thoughtful as Year One.

I refuse to believe Batman: Year One is in the same universe as The Dark Knight Returns, so I refuse to acknowledge that it is part of the same universe. Batman: Earth One acutally seems more in line TDKR than Batman: Year One does.

The thing is, after a week or so I got over it and now I like the movie for what it is. Batman fans are still sniping about B&R 16 years later.

Not really. Most of us laugh our butts off about it.

I enjoyed Iron man 3 and its my favorite of the 3 Iron man films. I've never had a problem with Batman & Robin. Maybe because it's the first Bat-movie I seen at the theater as a Kid. Now as an adult I can still watch it but prefer my Batman dark.

Exactly. I haven't seen anyone properly angry at Batman and Robin in years.

All you have to do is check the reviews of the film on youtube to see there are many batfans who are still bitter over it. Maybe around here it's different but just try going over to the batboards and openly saying you enjoyed aspects of that film and just see what reactions people give you.

I usually see a few in the Batboards that look down on me whenever I say I loved the movie (especially in the early years) but it's slowly changing.

Let's put this in perspective though. You were seething mad about the Mandarin thing. You threatened to abandon ship on Marvel entirely. But at the end of the day, the movie was a success and you will get to see more Iron Man films (likely very different from Black's version).

Batman & Robin killed the Batman franchise. It took 8 years for them to figure out a way to claw their way out of development hell. They threw around a bunch of ideas and got lucky that Nolan had a good enough one to justify producing it. I think Batman fans had a good reason to be angry about B&R's impact on the franchise.

This.

Although I hated the Mandarin thing too. With a passion. I hate to think that the best Iron Man sequel is called "The Avengers."

SM3

I don't think it's the 'worst' superhero movie but oh boy, after the quality of the first two movies (SM2 especially) compared to those first two movies the 3rd movie was a disgrace. An entertaining disgrace but a disgrace none the less.

I know. To me B:YO and B:TDKR are two of the bestest Batman comics I've ever read/. And then Miller.... dropped the ball with TDKSA and ASB&R. It was like he was trying to parody himself.

I don't necessarily agree with the idea either, but it's obviously been thought of that there is a "Frank Miller universe" for his writings of Batman.

As much as Goyer doesn't want to admit that Batman Begins is a Year One story, Nolan's trilogy took inspiration from two great Batman comics in the form of Year One and TDKReturns.

Absolutely. In fact I think there has been no Batman movie since 1989 that hasn't taken a little something from either B:YO or BTDKR. Or both. B&R maybe.

I don't think Batman Forever took anything from either two either. That one was more inspired by 70s Batman comics.

and B&R was mostly inspired by the 50s/60s and the Adam West show.

I'll say The Spirit. The movie was horrible on its own but considering the brilliance of the comic the film we got was even more pathetic. Since it bombed so badly I doubt I'll see another Spirit film in my lifetime.

The giant bat with red eyes came straight from Miller's TDKR.
