Tim Burton's Batman
« on: November 17, 2006, 02:27:30 PM »
I would actualy like a Rifftrax of the Tim Burton Batman movie.  I think it takes itself to seriously and everyone has seen it.  Plus, the dvd can be found almost anywhere and is pretty cheap.

My vote: Batman '89

I think eventually they will get to the point where they will do these films, and there is no reason they shouldn't start with the first of those 4 Batman films.

All 4 are plenty riffable!

Definitely. A terrible adaptation of Batman. At least Batman & Robin is meant to be goofy. (I hope.)

It's not. I watched the making-of specials when they came out. They thought they were making a serious Batman movie.

I just can't believe that. They may have thought they were making a good movie, and maybe Schumacher deluded himself into believing it was a serious movie, but I refuse to believe that the actors didn't know they were in a farce. Well, maybe Chris O'Donnell and Alicia Silverstone, but certainly Clooney - and even Schwarzenegger - know better.

I hate to state again my dislike of the first 4 Batman movie. I dont even really like any of Tim Burtons movies. I mean if your a goth kid you might love them. But there just to weird for me and i find most of his movies to be a trumpet of style over substance. Why i love Begins is basicly because it was the first time i watched a batman movie and said to myself "Wow this is the same batman from the comics". Instead of some else version of the character. The only other movie that did that for me was "Mask of the Phantasm" based on the Animated Series. Witch i would say was better then all previous 4 movies put together. But ya they could do all four of the previous film. But if they did Begins i dont know if i would want to watch it. Just because i like that movie so much.

I think Tim Burton's made some great movies: Ed Wood, Edward Scissorhands and Big Fish, but for some reason, Batman and its sequel fails to register with me.

Although getting Michelle Pfeiffer in the cat-suit was pretty damn awesome.   :P

Agreed, I've never seen the big deal with Burton's Batman.

That pic at the top of this page is priceless. Nice job.


Oh yeah, sorry to be the bearer of bad news but its going to B&R (not batman 1). JonnyFrag predicted it along with LoTR.

"LOTR  (we pretty much know one of these will happen sooner or later ...probably sooner)
Batman and Robin (very high likelyhood)
Titanic (been mentioned as a dream project from them for years)"

I like this movie, but it really doesn't have anything to do with Batman or its mythology. As an adaptation, it's terrible, but as a movie in its own right, I think it's pretty good.

Yeah, I've been thinking about who they should cast if they ever did a Dark Knight Returns movie and I've got two suggestions:

Gary Sinise


Or if we wanted to cast slightly older:

Victor Garber

I'm not sure I'd want to see a DKR movie. Movies have a hard time walking a character in between good and evil, and blockbusters almost always just give up and go for good. I'd hate to see an adaptation of that where I'm supposed to believe that Bats isn't going off the deep end.

If they could get him, Paul Newman has the perfect chin for it.

Yeah, it's more wishful thinking than anything else.  I film companies wouldn't want Bats beating the living crap out of Superman either.

They could do The Long Halloween though.
