  • The thing about comparing the Batman return toys to the others is..... terminator, rococo, and Alien had happy endings........ batman returns was depressing as fucm and for parents back then, gore and violence took a backseat to crippling depression

  • My favorite Batman movie

    Tomasz WojciechowskiTomasz Wojciechowski19 soat oldin
  • Good video man but 2things 1st this is my favorite Batman movie of all.. 2nd the no killing rule was born after Keaton, in the animated series, as a cartoon rule for kids.. Generally in comics batman kills👍 with the original rule to Never use a GUN, only gadgets👍.. And ofcourse as a last choice✋..

    Renos Kous.Renos Kous.Kun oldin
  • Though this script is a gigantic heap of plotholes, the mais problem with the film is its view of Batman. It was clearly written by someone who does not believe Batman is a true hero amd instead sees him as part of the problem. Bruce here is basically a pampered trustfund baby who doesn't know shit about the world he's navigating. He's also a hypocrite who spends the whole film killing minor goons, but goes all "Murder's inhumane" when he finds out Selina is out to kill the nuclear power mogul, 'cuz... well, that's no way to treat a white collar bandit, right? Selina gets how fucked up this whole world is and embraces its insanity. Bruce, on the other hand, never figures it out. That need not be such a problem necessairily. 2019's Joker makes the exact same point that the Waynes are real villains. But you can't make that your vision in a straight out Batman flick... It just doesn't match. Either subvert the superhero world in a dark world-gone-wrong film noir or embrace the hero's righteousness in a conventional superhero film.

  • Honestly there are tonnes of problems with this flick. Catwoman was brilliantly played by Pfeiffer and her descent into madness perfectly fits the nihilistic take on reality this film has. But she's so loosely tied to the rest of the plot it kinda makes your brain hurt. Why did she attack Batman on the rooftop? I mean, that's where her rivalry with the bat begins, but... why? Was she serious when she said she had amnesia and didn't know she'd been murdered? She definitely doesn't sound like it. But then why did it take her the whole film to go after Shreck?

  • Growing up, I always thought Miss Kitty was the most beautiful cat. I now live with my very own Bombay cat, and can attest that I was right. If ever you're curious if a black cat is a Bombay, check the pawpads. Only Bombay black cats have black pawpads. They have some behavior that might be weird to people who have lived with other cats, so check out the breed. They are super awesome.

  • "...this character is directed as an absolute monster, but is directed like we're supposed to have some sympathy for him. Poor DeVito does an amazing job trying to pull off both, but it's kind of like taking a disgusting villain like Baron Harkonnen from Dune and saying we're supposed to feel bad for him like Ramesses from Prince of Egypt." As a fan of both the original book and the David Lynch film version of Dune, I thought your comparison was brilliant. I'd say the film was more like it was taking the Baron Harkonnen, and trying to make him sympathetic like John Merrick from The Elephant Man, but the Ramesses comparison still works. Lynch's rendition of the Baron is the closest comparison I would make with DeVito's Penguin. Makes me wonder what your review of Lynch's Dune, or your comparison with Lynch's Dune with the new Dune, will be like. I agree that more could've been done with DeVito's Penguin. I think the idea of a villain who has a sad sympathetic origin, but at the same time is still an extremely monstrous person is worth exploring. I think the concept of Batman Returns is worth revisiting. Maybe as a video game rewrite set in Tim Burton's Batman universe with a much more developed story. The universe of Tim Burton's Batman in both the first two films yields so many creative possibilities. The Tick: Um... Arthur, is this a warm moment, or should we be disturbed? As a Tick fan, I thought your use of this scene from the 90s Tick show was awesome and very fitting. Brandon: Yep... I... uh... I wanted to be equal. Your use of the clip from Home Movies also worked quite well, Mr. Critic.

  • Would Bale kill people? Killed numerous League of Shadows members by blowing them up, killed Ras, killed the truck driver in TDK with the Tumbler, killed 3 dogs, killed Harvey, shoots and kills Talia's driver as well as killing Talia herself. Yes. Yes Bale Batman would kill. Also when Penguin dies and is dragged in the water, I always felt sorry for the actual penguins, not him.

  • While I agree with Doug that the execution is clunky, I see what they were doing with the Penguin’s end It’s not that we’re supposed to like him, but his beginning is so sad that it’s not entirely his fault that he became so monstrous They go overboard on the unlikable traits though, so that point does indeed get hurt

    Greg MehlinGreg Mehlin26 kun oldin
    • yeah but as unlikable that Penguin was portrayed, i still felt really bad for him, because a lot of how he is can be attributed to how he was betrayed and left for dead, while the rest can be attributed to the fact that he was raised by Penguins so he acts much on instinct.

      The Gaming PaladinThe Gaming Paladin24 kun oldin
  • I think Doug is full of shit on the whole "the Penguin is the main problem of this film" thing, ill admit its unfocused but his sad tragedy is present in the character and that feeds into his psychotic behavior despite what Doug thinks otherwise, personally I think its the disturbing amount of Fetish fodder this movie proudly has on display that is the problem, and I don't just mean Catwoman's costume cause that's just the tip of the iceberg, the movie is so chalked full of uncomfortable sexually charged scene's that I wouldn't be shocked if Tim Burton on his death bed confessed he wanted to make a Batman porno, sell it as a normal film, and gleefully get away with it.

Batman kill kiss etc. I was 10 when I watched it in cinema back in '92' A great tim burton movie with his usual "monsters" and a great batman return. The main "monster" is shrek. Even if he has the most human appearance of all. Great xmas movie too.

  • Another excellent video from the Nostalgia Critic. I saw this film when I was about thirty years old. I never assumed that Tim was trying to make the Penguin sympathetic to the audience (to the Gotham citizens, yes). The sad things he went through just explained why he was the twisted killer he became. I just viewed the character as a dark, twisted, killer, and was amazed by Danny's performance. I love this film for all of the good, crazy things that it is.

  • Loving the picture you made. Hopefully by Christmas this year all this will be behind us and you can show an actual picture of you all together enjoying Christmas. As for the video, I'll have to add this to my list of Christmas themed action movies to watch this Christmas. Batman 89 and Batman Returns are my two favourite ones because they are essentially my Batman movies due to being a child when they came out. They are also leagues better than the Kilmer and Clooney ones even if I liked Batman and Robin. Tim Burton's movie perfectly capture the gothic look of Gotham from the comics which continued into the animated.

  • Catwoman wasn’t a hypocrite when she told that woman she should not wait for Batman to save her. It was showing how she has changed between then and her her Catwoman persona and how the later is somewhat disgusted by the former.

    Sara SamaletdinSara SamaletdinOy oldin
    • well of course, she blames her timid nature for her near death experience, when in reality it saved her from death.

      The Gaming PaladinThe Gaming Paladin24 kun oldin
  • Films are written in certain way. You don’t need to have 5 civilians die for Batman doesn’t kill. Also him working outside of law is not really justified unless he doesn’t kill. But since he is American I guess many are fine with random person dresses as bat shooting people. I guess you can have Batman killing humans in a version but I would like there at least be some backlash in universe and some characters questioning it. Not just “how cool!”.

    Sara SamaletdinSara SamaletdinOy oldin
  • Shame a catwoman spinoff never happened. Was supposed to happen but when Burton left the Batman movies the spinoff got canceled. Also what I'm surprised Doug didn't mention was the fact the movie played on cats having 9 lives. Every one of those scenes where catwoman fell or had an accident done to herself she lost a life. When she kissed the stun gun with Max she literally counted her remaining lives. Interesting fact though; Julie Newmar actually said once she loved Pfeiffer's performance as catwoman.

Thank you, Nostalgia Critic. *UPDATE* : I indeed did more spit-takes. Then I choked. And died. And was buried by emperor penguins. This is my favorite movie, and now it has the perfect comedic analysis. Thank you again, Nostalgia Critic.
