This thread is to celebrate the originals. Sure some things were changed and it wasn't as faithful to the comic book as Batman Begins but BB wasn't 100% faithful either. There's a certain spirit of Batman that was captured beautifully in the Burton movies. A spirit that is missing in "Begins". I like BB alot but Burton's movies are something special. When I was ten years old I went to the theater every weekend to see Batman. I loved it. I knew the Joker didn't kill Bruce's parents but I still liked it. I really didn't want the Joker to die. All I know is when that them started, everytime I saw it I went nuts! I still get chills when that classic Batman theme begins, starting off slowly and grows until, Ta Da!, BATMAN appears and it goes wild from there. I remember the first time I saw the Bat logo circling I was trying to figure out what it was, I thought it was going to be the Bat Cave. And then when it was revealed to be the Bat logo I was like, Oh Cool! I was hooked from the minute Batman drops slowly behind the two thugs that just mugged that poor couple, cape spread into Bat wings, so cool, the sound of the gravel crunching beneath the Dark Knight's boots as the two crooks look up startled as they look upon the dark avenger, this beastly spectre before them. I freaked when I saw the Batarang, I just loved seeing it. It's always been my favorite of Bat weapons. Then he beat the crap outta' them, and then came the famous line:" I want you to do me a favor, I want you to tell all your friends about me." "What are you?!" "I'm Batman." When Batman Returns came out it was June 19th, it was the last day of school, I just got home checked the times in the paper then called my friend and his Mom took us to the theater. We waited out side for a bit, after waiting awhile an usher came out saying that there was a problem with the projector and it would be fixed soon. The line was so long, from the ticket booth to the middle of the parking lot. We got there early enough to get a good spot in line. Good thing the last day of school was only an hour long. I loved Batman Returns. I also became a Christopher Walken fan because of that movie. It was the first time I'd seen him in anything. I made sure to watch everytime he was on Saturday Night Live after seeing BR and his Continental sketches. But back to BatmanReturns. I was happy to see the Batarang again, even moreso, because it looked like the comics' version this time, I liked the one from Batman but this one was better, plus it had a navigational system this time, not that I felt he needed it but still cool. My friend and I thought the Penguin had a lot of good lines, one of our faves was, "Get in the Duck." I have a goofy sense of humor, I've always had it, so I loved the dark humor that was in BR. Such a beautiful scene when Batman spreads his cape into Batwings that was a hanglider as he flew among the Bats. I couldn't wait for more, so sad Tim didn't return.
