Re: 60s Batman show rights issues resolved!

While far from my preferred interpretation of the character, the Adam West Batman is a ton of fun. I will eagerly revisit this series if it comes to DVD.

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.....
Yes.

Batman Returns had as much camp, if not more, than Batman Forever: Penguin for Mayor (a plot lifted from the 60s TV show), the giant ducky boat, the circus of crime, the army of Penguins with rocket launchers, Selina being brough to life after being bitten by (apparently magic) alley cats, most of the scenes with Max, etc.

Forever had better action scenes.

And compare the two different reasons in the two different films why Bruce revealed--or tried to reveal--his ID to the villains. In Forever, he tried to reveal his ID to Harvey to save people's lives. In Returns it revealed it to Selina, the Penguin and Max to try and get laid.

I'm not saying Forever isn't a flawed film. But it's better than Returns.

Yeah, I'm not even going to bother to argue anymore.

If they think the Batmobile driving up the side of a building, nipples on the batsuit and big neon signs in Gotham is a great thing... good for them.

I don't think anybody believes nipples on the batsuit are a good thing.

Neon signs in Gotham are a stylistic choice that I don't like but don't dislike enough ruin Forever for me.

As for the Batmobile riding a line up the side of a building...

Well shit... Did the rooftop Tumbler chase ruin Batman Begins for you?

There is nothing to ever argue about to begin with. People have different tastes. Certainly you are not insinuating that your opinion on Batman & Robin is superior to those that liked the movie are you?

It's fine that a few people here love Batman Forever and Batman and Robin, doesn't mean I have to ever agree with them! They'll never change my mind.

I get a little defensive whenever someone badmouths Batman Returns though. I really love that movie even with its faults.

I love Batman Returns. It's my favorite of the Burmacher series. However, favorably comparing Forever to Returns is not badmouthing Returns. It's complimenting Forever.

I do understand. I like all 4 from that series some more than other. For me each of those movies have thier good and bad points.

It's also just expressing an opinion.

I think we forget that fact sometimes, no matter what the discussion is.

I would have labeled all you guys insane if you had thought batnipples were a good idea.

Re: 60s Batman show rights issues resolved!

I had an issue of Starlog magazine from around when Batman Returns was released, and recall someone who worked on it was mentioning they originally planned a bigger Batmobile sequence, including having the car driving up the sides of buildings.

So, they saved that idea for the next film.

Twas Burton's darkness that led to the studio pushing the franchise in the other direction. Making Penguin an infanticidal ghoul was probably not the best move. I mean, killing children, isn't that little...

*BLAM!*

(NO, IT'S A LOT! )

Well, Burton did produce Batman Forever, at least, so it's kind of a transitional piece.
Burton was kept on the project as a producer by the studio in order to appease fans, but he had little -- if any -- actual input into Batman Forever. I agree that, tonally, it seems to mark a half-way point between Burton's Batman and Schumacher's Batman & Robin, but that probably has to do with Warner Bros. more than anything. After all, when Burton got a free hand to make his second Batman film, he also indulged in quite a bit of personal excess.

Whatever your smokin', I hope you brought enough for the whole class...
