    One of my cinemas was playing Batman Returns last summer, but sadly, I was going to a concert that weekend. :csad:

    I'd love to see Burton's Batman on the big screen.

    I sent a message to HOYTS cinemas asking if they will be playing Batman '89 and this was their response:

    I'd love them, if they were 6" or equivalent to MM...

    Not the 3" rubbery plastic crap that the sell for $11 these days when I could buy $5 Batman Forever/Robin/BTAS figures that lasted through everything.

    They're 4", not 3". You'd think people who are such fanatics about scale would get that right.

    I'm still buying them all and am very appreciative that we're getting them in the first place.

    It is a shame they're not 6", but you'd still have to pay me not to buy them, and I'd just use your money to buy them.

    I re-watched this classic, and I liked it more than ever.

    PROS:
    Keaton as Batman, best Batman for me
    Joker
    Mood/atmosphere
    Gotham
    Alfred
    Iconic Batman imagery and music

    CONS:
    Gordon
    Prince music
    Joker's henchmen
    Some action scenes could have been more visceral

    8/10

    Other Bat films:
    Batman Returns 7/10
    Batman Forever 6/10
    Batman and Robin NEVERMIND
    Batman Begins 8/10
    The Dark Knight 8.5/10
    The Dark Knight Rises 8/10

    So do I as far as a I can remember, it's the first movie that I recall using the classic use of henchmen, I don't remember seeing anything before that but I could be wrong.

    I would have preferred if they were more threatening and less goofy.:oldrazz:

    They better remake Bob. Has Bob ever been in a comic?

    Other than the movie adaption I'm pretty sure he hasn't but The Joker would know.

    See what I mean? Why the hell is there a Bob action figure?!:cmad:

    And yeah, adapting Bob in the comics could be a good idea. He could be sort of Joker's Robin. Could be a Dick Grayson foe.:woot:

    I especially love their scene in Axis Chemicals near the beginning. They are dressed like they stepped right out of a Cagney or Edward G. Robinson gangster picture from the 1930s or '40s. But, they don't over sell it as kitsch like Dick Tracy would do a year later. They are just old school movie thugs who are not funny, even if their presentation is over the top.

    So yes, we agree.
