File over the Tim Burton Batman Movies

Tim Burton makes some strong choices. Burton specifically makes some strong Burtonesque rather than Batmanesque choices in relation to visuals in Batman Returns. However, the anthology aspect of Batman has become a huge aspect of his lineage. People reading(or watching) Batman expect works from different creators who make strong choices. There’s one animated Batman movie called Batman: Gotham Knight featuring six radically different mini-Batman movies with different visual styles. The animated Batman movies certainly are a lot closer to continuity compared to the live action ones but this confirms how radically different interpretations is becoming an important part of the Batman ideology around say Bruce Wayne having his parents killed when he was a child.

Batman’s no killing policy is one Batman staple that goes straight out the window in the Batman movies. You can afford to kill super villans if you just produce a few movies when you reboot the franchise whereas if you have to generate a dozen comic books per month you might want to keep your rogue’s gallery safe in Arkham Asylum.

The first Batman movie is a mixed bag. The Bruce Wayne and Vicki Vale parts are great. Harvey Dent turns up in the movie to create stuff for possible sequels but none of the Harvey Dent elements in the first Batman are found in Batman Forever. The particular Batman parts are not so hot, Batman looks only a little uncomfortable in his suit and the fight scenes are cartoonish

Batman Returns is one of the very most perverse PG-13 movies of time. Pengiun’s line “At the least my nose isn’t bleeding” is one of the classic dark humor lines ever up there with the failed Robocop demonstration in the first Robocop movies. Batman Returns is definitely a Tim Burton picture moreso compared to the original Batman but again Batman being interpreted in other ways has become a strong aspect of Batman’s appeal. Catwoman’s origin is a little odd. All in all, it’s a weird but only rarely boring picture that’s definitely a film to own strong opinions about.

Batman Forever is produced by Tim Burton and therefore plenty of the Tim Burton touches are gone. Chris O’Donnell’s portrayal of Robin is hilarious while he looks about 30 years old. “If I don’t take him in, he’ll go to Social Services” Bruce Wayne says. He’s old! He needs to be a member of staff of social services. Bruce Wayne: “Dick Grayson lost his parents when he was a young child just like me.” Maybe a young child that’s actually Robin William’s brother from the movie Jack. This is actually the stuff of parodies.
