    Yup. How awesome is that? So different from this era of watching trailers on the Internet over and over again.

    Ah okay. I had no idea about the number of theaters it was playing at. Thanks for the link. :up:

    There are different versions of Batman's emblem but the one that everyone is very familiar with is the oval version. It has such a powerful presence. I love seeing clips (on YouTube) that showed billboards for the 1989 Batman movie that had nothing other than the oval Batman emblem. There was no need to add the title of the movie or any slogans. People just knew.

    I have no idea what movie you're talking about but you're obviously in the wrong thread. :o

    lmao! You're leaving out quite a bit! But honestly, Bruce, as awesome as he was played by Keaton...never felt like Bruce Wayne to me. I never felt like I was given the public billionaire Bruce Wayne of Wayne Enterprises who EVERYBODY knows (including his obvious tragic backstory). How do people not know his parents and what happened to them?

    He was more quirky. In public and in private. Stuttering sometimes. Is this Clark Kent at Daily Planet or Peter Parker? Or is this Bruce Wayne? They even gave the guy glasses.

    He wasn't built. He was an average guy who suddenly puts the batsuit on and the rubber makes him intimidating. And it WAS intimidating. His Batman was amazing. But I could have done without the killing. That stuff always makes me think of Punisher or something.

    Funny Bruce Wayne, but Christian Bale felt more like Bruce to me. Same with Kilmer. Batman? Keaton got a lot of things right that even Bale didn't.

    Even when I was in Ecuador at the time of the movie the hype was huge just because of that logo even though the Adam West series had long been off the air, I would even cut out of newspapers the movie ad until it was no longer in theaters and the size in the ad would get smaller as each week went by.

    Sadly over in Ecuador we didn't get the Taco Bell cups, comic book adaptations and the T-shirts we'd get were all pirated and sold on streets.

    So I just saw a conversation between two entertainment journalists about how B'89 apparently "doesn't hold up". Excuse me while I :whatever:.

    Batman of '89 is MY Batman. This is the film that made me aware of the Dark Knight, the Caped Crusader - He who owns the night!
    A film I've watched more than any other - no other film can I quote (almost from start to finish) more than this.
    I loved Nolan's trilogy, I loved Batman Returns, I loved Batman: The Animated Series, but for me, this is Batman.

    This is still the best live action Batman movie.

    To me, the nolanverse films are more surreal and unrealistic than the burtonverse ones, Even though I like both series.

    Batman and Joker fits right into Burton's dark and fantastic Gotham City, but seems out of place in Nolan's Chicagotham City. I can believe that a man would dress up like a bat in Burton's world, but in Nolan's it seems kind of unnecessary and awkward.

    If you make Batman too realistic, it backfires. Batman has never been realistic in the first place...

    I remember seeing the movie for the first time when i was about seven years old. My parents turned off the tv at the beginning of the "descent into mystery" part. They told me that the movie was over... But I remembered scenes from the commercials that I hadn't seen in the movie. Next time it aired they let me watch all of it. I thought the cathedral part where Batman kicks Joker's ass was a bit scary:hehe:
