    Wow I...honestly never even thought there was anything in there. Anything except a prop hand or whatever. That's really quite surprising. Looks like one of the puppets from Puppet Master.

    So would people here consider Batman Returns to be a Christmas movie? I'd say it has as much claim as Die Hard, at least.

    I end up watching Batman Returns several times throughout November & December, that gothic aesthetic + Batman + snow all over the place is a match made in heaven.

    It can even be deadlier if you mean it.

    Maybe I'm alone in this,but I prefer the score to this film over the original. Don't get me wrong,Elfman's score for the first one is iconic. But Batman Returns music feels more gothic and haunting. Plus,I do view this as a Christmas movie.

    You're not alone. In fact, I prefer almost everything about this movie over the first one. And yes, it's definitely a Christmas movie.

    It was on TV this afternoon so I just had it on in the background at home .....and got sucked in.

    Man, after watching Batman Forever , because its new on Netflix, I felt sad because Forever is a pretty damn mediocre film.

    However, Returns was terrific. Dont get me wrong, some of the Penguin stuff is way OTT ( child murders ?), and it didn't really need Chris Walken as a third villain - but the dynamic between Keaton and Pfeiffer is so great that it carries the film. If only Burton had made a trilogy and been able to bring Pfeiffer back, sigh.

    For 1991 it's a good movie and a decent sequel to Batman 89, which is still awesome over 30 years later.
