The more I go back and watch Burton’s Batman, the more I appreciate it. Damn good movie.
Yup. The Nolan fanboys can have their expository dialogue shoved down their throats and ask for seconds, along with the forced humor that falls flat, horrible cinematography and repetitive uninspired score music (I think the performances from the actors in those films are about the only positive takeaway I get from watching them) .
I can’t take a comic book movie seriously no matter how “real” it tries to be. A man with unlimited money and resources that decides to fight crime isn’t a hero, he’s a lunatic. At least by making a “hyper-realistic” universe, Burton could take out his toys and play.
Well as a whole I’ll go with Nolan’s. Very results oriented Batman there.
Each Batman has his strengths and I hold Bale, Kilmer, and Keaton in about equal regard. Keaton had an extremely strong Batman and a rather quirky Bruce Wayne. Kilmer had a smooth Batman and a Smooth Bruce Wayne. Bale’s Bruce Wayne was cool and had the rich idiot and super philanthropist down pat, while his Batman was pretty awesome…except that voice. Speaking of voice, that’s the keyword that actually answers the question.
There’s only one Goddamned Batman that I want watching my Gotham City. And his name…is Kevin Conroy.
