To each their own. Albeit, I don't see how my liking of BR affects my comments or criticisms of IM2. Your entire disdain for BR seems to be based on that it is not like the comic series (though there are countless variations on these characters in the comics). That's fine. But that doesn't bug me, because despite a rather irrelevant narrative (which was intentional), BR is a very tight film. Batman, Catwoman and especially Penguin are all very well developed and tragically sympathetic while repulsive. The ending is emotionally moving and seeing Catwoman kill Christopher Walken (who was in top form) and Batman lose--literally fail--at it all at the end was a punch to the stomach as a kid and still cathartically moving when I occasionally watch it today. Keaton, DeVito, ESPECIALLY Pffeifer and WAlken were on in top form and the aesthetics of this film, particularly the costume design, cinematography and superb Danny Elfman score make this a fine movie, IMO. Whether it is accurate or not. IM2 I thought was a forgettable, muddled movie that was not nearly as charming as the first installment due to the overworked narrative. BR begins and ends with itself, IM2 feels like an ad for future Marvel films. This is just my opinion, but that is what makes IM2 a lesser film. Just my opinion.
