The BATMAN RETURNS Honest Trailer.

In a lot of ways, Batman Returns is more of a Tim Burton film than Batman itself was. And, as Honest Trailers kind of noted: this one was more of a Burton film than a Batman one. Mind you, I liked the first two just fine, but I think that the director and scriptwriters were more interested in Bruce Wayne than in Batman, and more interested in the various villains than in either facet of the hero.

Which is actually all right. Burton got excellent work out of Nicholson, Pfeiffer, De Vito, and Walken, and that’s nothing to sneeze at. I mean, look at what happened to the franchise with the next two movies. Or don’t, or at least don’t too closely; SAN loss might result.

    I feel like seeing prime Michelle Pfeiffer in a skin-tight cat suit should be more interesting than this movie managed to make it.


    OTOH (and hopefully this won’t get me banned here), I’ve never been a huge fan of Tim Burton, so maybe that’s why?

      People don’t have to like Tim Burton here. He’s weird and I’m weird and that’s OK. 🙂

        He does have some rather personal move like Edward Scissorhand and Big Fish. He made Big Fish as part of tribute to his just passed father, as it’s one of the finest father-son movie ever made.

    “Cat-Scratch Pfieffer” earned a decent-sized chortle.
