What Don't You Like About "Batman and Robin"

Seems like we've recently had threads dedicated to all of the previous batch of Batman movies.

Now it's time for... THE ONE.

We've all heard it, we've all said it, we all know it. But it's still sorta fun to say it, read it and talk about it.

So let's go.

Let the rain of SUCK begin.

It might be easier to list what I like about it. Can't think of anything right now though.

What's the point of this topic exactly? Stating the obvious?

I can pick my number one problem. Everything was a set up for a pun.

NP. It only works on YouTube videos and you don't have to use the "inline url" option they give you on the video's homepage. Just use the link itself and the board figures the rest out.

Same here. I could write essays on what's wrong with the damn movie, but I'm stumped as to what's right with it.

What really irks me is the score. Did Elliot Goldenthal write any new music for this film, or did they just take all the material he wrote for Forever and plug it in where it seemed like a good fit? I enjoyed his score for Forever, and a lot of times even if a film sucked, it'll still have good original music. This one had okay reheated leftover music.

Why would Poison Ivy team up with a guy who wants to freeze the world? That wouldn't be good for plants!

Re: What Don't You Like About "Batman and Robin"

1. The suits suck. Too rubbery and colorful.
2. Gotham has devolved from a dark, crumbling city fighting a losing war against crime to a cartoonish joke of a place in which crime happens more for laughs than for its seriousness.
3. The Robin character isn't very much of an interesting character. Neither is the Batman character in this version.
4. However, I thought the storyline about Alfred getting sick and the plight of Mr. Freeze were emotional. But those were the only things I liked about this movie.
