For me the world is big enough for all flavors of Batman, from the comics to Adam West, Burton, Schumacher and Nolan. It's all fun for me.
Schumacher? What are you talking about.
Schumacher NEVER did any Batman movies. It was always Burton and then we had Nolan doing them.
That's unfair. Batman Forever
was a solid movie. It's no Batman Begins
but it was at least as good as Batman Returns
I hate that Batman Forever
gets tarred and feathered just because it's the older, wiser brother of the mentally retarded Batman & Robin.
Actually, it's better than Batman Returns
. I've always thought it ironic how Tim Burton is respected, and Joel Shumaker hated, when they did the exact same thing. They both made excellent first Batman films, and shitty second ones.
What's even more ironic, is that Nolan also did this. But since he's making a third one, I'm looking forward to seeing if the pattern is broken.
