    • @Brian Babin I'd say it's not that it's too much Burton, it's that it's too much bad Burton. This is the Burton on Planet of the Apes and Alice in Wonderland. The characters are ludicrous; the visuals are ugly; the events of the story are grotesque. And bear in mind when I say this that I love Jodorowsky and early Cronenberg.

    • Merry Christmas Eve to you too! (Correction : it's now Christmas Day. So... Merry Christmas to you too!) I'm with Rob on this movie. Batman Returns is my favorite of the Batman movies too. It's so Tim Burton and dark and intense that I just love it. Danny Elfman's music for this is great as well. I do like the characters and I don't mind what the Penguin is supposed to be, even if he's more like a tragic villain. But I can see the kind of arc he has, going from being a man when seeing what happened to his parents to being an animal when Bruce exposed his plans for Gotham.

  • Hey Channel Awesome. Sorry if this is a bummer of a comment but I need to say something to someone... my older brother died. Just a couple days before Christmas. Shit obliterated me, man. And you know what? I’d give anything to have a thousand videos of him and I just taking the piss out of movies we both love and hate. These first viewings are awkwardly comforting.

  • I actually also love the penguin army because I feel like that's something the Adam West Batman would have done if they'd had the budget and access to penguins. I feel like Burton just thought, "The Adam West Batman would have done a penguin army, so I'll do it - but darker!"

  • I love that shot of Paul Reubens at the window, with the flames reflected like he's already burning in hell for what he and his wife are about to do. It's just one of the many little touches that make this movie so much fun to watch.

  • Batman doesn't kill, but the murders are funny in the flick, so for me it's a movie with funny murders but not a Batman movie. The fact that Batman is almost a side character here and everyone's stories are different helps a lot

  • This version of catwoman will always be the best. It's cool to see the previous iterations from the old shows mixed together, given some grounding and then turned insane. Then they decided to give all of that personality to Quinn and turned catwoman into some goggle wearing, drab and forgettable character.

    • @Dorothy Allspice We seem to have a similar taste in women, since Catherine Zeta Jones is also high on my list of, let's say, early celebrity crushes. :D I think with both it's just the smile and the eyes, they are just the images of classical femma fatales, mysterious, intelligent, a sense of humour combined with sensuality, a tad dangeous, highly unpredictable and uncontrolable. At least they have the effect. Another two early celebrity crushes would be Jane Seymore and Sigourney Weaver...and I wondered why I regularly kept watching Dr. Quinn without liking it that much but it became clear to me... :D

      Marc BraunMarc BraunOy oldin
    • Yeah, Michelle Pfeiffer was the one who made me realize I love women. One of the ones. The other one was Catherine Zeta Jones. She was electric is Chicago. 😍💞💖💕

  • About "What we should've feel about him and his death - Sorry of relief " - Why not both? Life treated him cruelly and he became a monster because there were no alternatives... he survived because it is human nature and was ambitious because genes..? In any case, the very fact that he died is sad at least because everything began badly for him and ended even worse... He hadn't any chance to actually become something good - and therefore he squeezed the maximum out of what was. Anyway - Tim Burton is good...
