    Just watched this movie again and still love it! Unlike the first Batman film, thisholds up very well. Catwoman made it for me. What I didnt like about Batman was how cringeworthy and cheesy it could be. I loved and appreciated the more mature and dark town that its sequel took. Overall great film and still remains my favorite

    One thing I didnt get though was when the Ice Princess fell off the building, why the heck did Batman just stand there and do nothing? Why didnt he jump after her and/or use his gadgets to save her? Him not reacting at all came across dumb

    I have a love-hate thing with this film. It really depends on when I watch it. Sometimes, if I'm in the right mindset, I really enjoy the atmosphere, how strange it is, the craziness...but like tonight, when I rewatched it, all I saw was how cringe worthy some of the ideas were, how Batman was a side-character in his own film, and, most importantly, how weird it all was. It felt like things happened because it looked cool. It didn't really feel like a movie, but rather was a little...sloppy.

    "You didn't invite me so I crashed" - Penguin.

    "Rats with wings do your thing" - Penguin

    "Bruce Wayne why are you dressed up as Batman?" - Max Shreck

    "Becouse he is Batman you moron" - Selina

    That's top of my head. I always like the quotes

    Agree.

    I had not watched it for a while but it was on ITV2 last night so I watched it. Being someone who always loved BR, it was weird, this time it did not really do it for me. I turned it off with half an hour to go and just went to bed. Batman 89 having been on the week prior, I watched that and it was still great.

    I'd never really noticed it before but Batman IS actually just a side character in this film. It's all about the Cat and the Bird. And what is up with Wayne Manor? 1) that is not the building from the first film and 2) it looks like a model.

    Another thing that always bugged me about BR is that you can tell it was shot entirely on sets;- the narrow-ness of the streets and how Bats only ever drives 10mph through em, when the Bat and the Cat are scrappin on the rooftops, you can tell the buildings in the background are not real. You can really see the difference without Anton Furst and any location shoots.

    I love the weirdness of it and Michelle and DeVito are awesome, but when I actually get past the initial nerdgasm of seeing Keaton in a new Batsuit driving the Burtonmobile, well, the film leaves a lot to be desired and imo is nowhere near as good as the first one.

    My favorite BR quote is this:

    "My name is not Oswald! It's Penguin! I am not a human being. I am an animal! Cold-blooded!" - Penguin

    I can't believe you didn't mention:

    "I am CATWOMAN. Hear me roar."-Catwoman...well yeah lol...

    Some of my other favorites:

    "Your just jealous because I'm a genuine freak and you have to wear a mask."-Penguin (not sure if thats exactly)

    "Mistletoe can be deadly if you eat it. But a kiss can be even deadlier...if you mean it"-Batman/Bruce and Catwoman/Selina (still my favorite comic film romance...just tragic by the end.)

    It's a shame that spin-off of catwoman turned out the way it did

    I've seen it before but I love this one. DeVito did a magnificent job with his Penguin, transforming into that character. If I were Tim here I'd be afraid of standing there with him!

    How is G4 doing a Batman marathon this weekend but excluding this movie?!?!?

    I don't get it.....you can never see this on TV anywhere! It's my favorite Batman flick behind TDK.

    :( :( :(

    I remember seeing it play on tv all the time during the late 90s and early 2000s. I think I saw it once on a local tv station last year.

    This is the best Batman film of the whole Burton/Schuhmacher series. Definitely!
