    I remember this because I used to have stickers that included with the book as well. How come this in the special edition?

    Frank Gorshin is The Riddler, no question. :woot: Jim Carrey was being Jim Carrey (a criticism often levelled at Jack Nicholson's Joker which just isn't true).

    what exactly is wrong with carrey being himself? he like all the other actors put a lot of himself into the role which fits the character great. I cant even imagine riddler any other way. jack still defines the joker for me.

    The Batman Forever panther suit would have looked awesomem without the nipples, ans if Kilmer could have moved his head.

    I watched this again last night. This movie is truly the zeitgeist of 90's pop culture.

    I like how the movie starts - it's like BAM!.. here's Batman getting ready then BAM! here's Two-Face.. no time for exposition, just a short speech to establish the character, then it jumps straight into the action. It's for hyper 5 year olds but at least it's entertaining. :woot: Then you have Nicole Kidman bearing cleavage with the saxophone music playing and all of this fetish stuff coming into it. This movie has something for everybody.

    I can only take his performance in small doses. I am glad that he didn't appear as the Riddler until halfway through the film, otherwise it would have been too much.

    Honestly, I never cared about the nipples. I don't get what's the big deal about them.

    I love opening sequence, Bruce suiting up one of the best scenes then fires up the Batmobile. We see Two-Face holding a cop in the Second National Bank of Gotham. Classic!

    No I liked it... It's not an absolute favourite but it works very well in the film.

    Same and same. I was very young at the time, so it was quite a thing seeing 'a new Batmobile!'.

    My favourite is still the Burton Batmobile though... I list them as:

    1.) Burton Batmobile
    2.) TAS/TNBA Batmobile
    3.) 60's Batmobile
    4.) The Tumbler
    5.) Forever Batmobile
    6.) Batman & Robin Batmobile

    And the rest.

    I remember this. I actually had one that I cut one out from a newspaper. It had Peter Travers and another critic praising it. It was so long ago. I think I lost it or accidentally threw it away.

    in my opinion, the tumbler is cool, but bruce and fox should have put bat-fines on it, too give it more of a batmoblie look.

    I had almost the whole set of those cards, but not that one. The embossed shiny ones and the holographic cards looked awesome. I especially loved all of the Two-Face cards.

    Yeah I love that. You don't have to wait until the movie is almost over before seeing Two-Face. I call TDK mainly a Harvey Dent movie. Batman Forever is a Two-Face movie and you get to see him terrorising Gotham and laying traps for Batman.

    That's why, unlike others, I like Tommy Lee Jones Two-Face and always will.

    I love it, it's very sleek looking.

    Batman & Robin had way too much glowing colours and lights which at least fit in with all the neon.

    Which BF Batsuit does everyone like better, the "panter" suit or the "sonic" suit?

    ^ I would've liked the panther suit more if they didn't have the nipples (of course), and if it was overall a little less 'muscled', particularly the abs section. It just seems a little too 'sexy' for Batman. Other than that, it's very good, I think. (And Kilmer's eyes are too close together and make him look distractingly cross-eyed, but that's not the suits fault).

    I like the sonar suit, too. I'd be interested to see what that would look like in black. (And this goes for the panther suit too, without the cape clasps).

    The panther suit looks awesome, it's like an updating of Michael Keaton's suit from Batman '89. Except it looks far more sleeker.

    The nipples never bothered me, so I don't understand the nerd rage over that at all.

    Holy crap. It's unbelievable, the immediate rush of nostalgia just from seeing this newspaper ad.

    It was the first one I saw in a theme park so yeah I have soft spot for it I like it.

    I like the panter suit a lot and the sonic suit looks too shiny for my liking.

    I loved other vehicles in the film like the Batwing and the Robin uses the Batboat.

    I'm getting it from the Warner Bros Studio Store tag at the bottom. Remember those? There were in a ton of shopping malls. Now they only exist in the Six Flags parks.

    Oh yeah, for sure. I used to always beg to go in there when I was at the mall with my mom. I remember seeing the Batman & Robin trailer for the first time on one of the big screens in a WB Store. And thinking it looked...awesome! :woot:

    I admit there are aspects of that blog that stretch certain similarities, but you're the opposite extreme. You're such a comic purist you fail to realize that the comics are anything but pure, that there's inconsistencies in characterization and details, that they change, that the Batman of today is not the Batman of 1939 and the character's core was not always about his no-kill rule. Not even the Nolan films adhered to it completely.
