    COUPLE OF THINGS:
    I can't believe I have to clarify this, yet again. My OPINION is that Batman '89 is a bad BATMAN movie. Now that doesn't mean it is a bad movie, in fact it's a lot of fun and looks incredible, as I said countless times in the video. What being a bad Batman movie means to me, is that the film did not accurately portray the character of Bruce Wayne and what makes him tick. That is also just my OPINION, feel free to disagree, but maybe watch the video before you leave a lengthy comment telling me how wrong I am.
    To those of you who enjoyed the video and are sharing it, commenting, liking and donating to the Patreon, I cherish you guys, and I thank you endlessly for the support. These videos take a lot of time and a lot of effort, but you guys really do make it worth it.

      HiTop Films I just want to say our opinions, interests and knowledge really coincide. So far I completely agree with you on:
      Your opinion on Batman Killing and the purpose of his crusade being for children not to suffer like him
      How to fix the Martha scene
      Homecoming is a bad Spider-Man movie
      Insomniac’s Spider-Man is the best Spidey since Spectacular
      but most of all..... 3:00 YES FINALLY ANOTHER WELL INFORMED FAN! LONG LIVE BILL FINGER! In all seriousness I love your work so far. You deserve more subscribers and I’m more than happy to be one.

      You have a flawed theory, Batman has already tried to kill the Joker before he ever found out He was the Man who killed Bruce's Parents. Bruce Wayne is not on a mission to avenge His parents death, it's only an unexpected bonus in the final confrontation.

    When Batman originally came out in 1989, people were astounded by the film. Because at the time, all they had to compare it to was the 60s tv show. 30 years later, after having the extremely successful Nolan films, the current DC cinematic universe that features Batman, a lot of people (including myself) who loved the Burton films realize that Burton could’ve done a lot better. The villians mostly overshadow Batman, not much substance was put into the stories. They mostly relied on eye candy to attract an audience. Burton actually said that his movie was more of a cultural phenomenon than a great film.

    Have those films aged well? Probably not. What 80s and 90s action films have? That said, it means a lot to people who grew up watching em. I also do feel it's better than a large chunk of the current MCU films. So I don't know. And I don't think Nolan gave us the definitive Batman. I always find myself laughing the moment Bale speaks as Batman. Wherease Keston was always intriguing to me. He's quiet and cold. It's very similiar to Justice League's TAS Batman.

    It's not as good as the Nolan Trilogy but I still love it. There is just something so carefree and entertaining about Batman 1989 and Michael Keaton is dynamite as Batman.

    You have no idea what the hell you are talking about,kid. You are just some 19 year old millennial,who wasn't even around when this movie was first released. You were still swimming around in your daddy's testicles,while "Batman" was making millions of dollars,at the box office. Tim Burton did an amazing job with this movie,and any TRUE Batman fan,can clearly see that. He gave it that golden age,dark Noir style,which the early Batman comics had. Burton having Jack Napier (Joker) killing Bruce Wayne's parents,drove Bruce to develop a cold bitter hatred towards Napier,which made the fued between Batman and Joker,all that much more personal. Batman now had a reason to wanna kill the Joker. I noticed in the video,you said to just forget about Bob Kane's version of Batman,and then you also said that Bill Finger's take on the character was the real Batman. Lol what an arrogant statement to make. Bob Kane's stories, were some of the best,there were. Batman was brutal and even used guns. This was when Batman had balls, and wasn't some SJW who didn't kill criminals. What's wrong with that? Obviously,anyone who knew anything about the early Batman comics,knew that's exactly the kind of Batman that Burton wanted him to be. Don't put down and criticize what you don't understand,kid. Just stick to reviewing and sucking up on the Batman movies of your generation and leave ours alone.

    Batman 1989 is a Masterpiece and Batman Returns was good. It was Batman Forever that was a bad Batman film and Batman and Robin was not only the worst Batman movie, it's one of the worst movies ever in general.

  • Eric Kenney
    Eric Kenney Day ago

    The greatness of a character like Batman is that he doesn't care what you think of his identity, his decision, his mission. He is not an identity obsessed millennial. He doesn't need to explain anything. Which is why the hints to who he is and how he works, sprinkled here and there, fit the nature of the character. Because Bruce IS shallow. There is no depth to explore. Batman is right under the surface, always. His sickness, his illness. The same with Nicholson's Joker. There is no grand arc, no great depth to moor within the two, because both men are mad. Crazy to the gills. There is no reason for their actions. The movie portrays these two mad men both fully accepting their illness finding each other and thusly perpetuating their madness, in turn creating the plot by both bringing out the best and the worst of each other with the city and Vicki Vale caught in between their madness. It works in doing that. You mention The DARK KNIGHT. The best Batman film and probably best comic film of all time. Its the same movie. There is no origin. In fact, the movie would still be what it is if there was no Batman Begins. Its a movie of 2 shallow lunatics with a city and a cast of characters caught between them. Nolan goes to great lengths with false origins to layout how his Joker also has no depth. Also have no reason for his actions. Why? .. because both portrayals are of insane men. There is no goal but to watch the world burn or give this town an enema. Their only reason's being .. just because. And Bruce, what does he spend the entire Dark Knight doing? He pretends he has depth. Pretends he can just toss away his mental illness and live an imaginary life with Rachel.knows better. See there is no arc of redemption to Bruce in The Dark Knight. We find by the end of the movie that it is a lie. Smoke and mirrors. All there is for him is a never-ending road of sacrifice. Of course that is what Bruce realizes, just as Micheal Keaton's Batman already knew. That his mental illness along with his money makes him the only force against the same mental illness found in his rogues. It's a shallow narrative because what makes Bruce Batmsn isn't some deep puzzle, it's a simple shallow decision. Its that simple decision that also make him heroic. Once Batman, in any adaption, comics , film, animation, video games, is fighitng the Joker, or the Riddler or the Penguin any illusions to an arc or deep internal struggle within Bruce are and ever will be a lie because he is then beyond needing to explain himself and what he has become is therefore beyond needing to be explained. Which is why .. writers rarely ever do it. Except for Nolan in TDKR, which is ridiculous, and not the end of that story, if Nolan's Batman is indeed Batman.

    This is why I don't like why people are tired of seeing origin stories for heroes. I understands it gets boring when we're seeing the same thing over and over again, but the solution isn't to stop focusing on a character's origin, Cause when you do, You get a movie like this where the movie looks and sounds cool but the title character has no actual, well, character

    I watched this movie as a 7 year old back in 1989 and I loved it! BUT, I remember my grand father, who took me to the cinema to see this, hated the film. I remember him telling me that it was too dark and Batman was too violent. At the time I thought he was just being an "old man", but reflecting on it now, even my granddad who didn't know much about Batman, felt that they did it wrong.
    I still love the movie and think Michael Keaton is the greatest movie Batman ever, but the character of the Batman he played, as written for this film, is not my ideal Batman. if that makes sense. I also like the movie for it's score and imagery. Visually it set up a lot of things for Batman that artists borrow from till this day. Plus, i was there for the hype. Every magazine, every news paper had Batman 89 in it. It felt huge, and I haven't been able to shake that. Even seeing some of the stills in this video is nostalgic because I remember seeing those same stills back in the day.
    At the time this was something that was never done before and they did it the only way the creative team knew how. I'm sure, 30 years from now, people will pick apart the Nolan batman films the same way.

    without the 89 batman movie. we probably still be doing campy ass batman wa tu see dancing with the joker and catwoman on the big screen. The real story of batman is not a lighthearted one. the 89 batman movie was the first batman movie to really show him in a dark knight sort of light. many directors and actors have butchered the role. There a reason heath ledger won an academy award for being joker, immersed himself in the reading material. And drew from the spirit of the character.

    It's really hard to explain to people that don't read comics that what they have gotten in Batman '89, The Dark Knight trilogy, and BvS is not Batman. It's just a few things of Batman thrown into a great deal of Hollywood made up none sense. It's hard to explain to them that these movies maybe enjoyable or successful but they are not Batman.

    Tim Burton's movies can be summed up in one phrase: style over substance. The entire 80s was about looking good instead of actually BEING good. This is why Burton's films slowly started getting bad and Johnny Depp was his favorite stooge.

    "Batman under no circumstance should kill people" - that is bullshit. Even in the original comics he was a killing machine, that is another thing that you don't give a shit just because it is convenient for you not giving. He also killed like almost in all Batman movies that exist. The Batman which does not kill under no circumstances, even if his or his loved ones' life in danger, is not intimidating and just an adult clown in a bat suit, a target of jokes from the criminals. Sorry, but nitpicking lore fuckers like you the reason for getting shitty fan service adaptations for comics/video games, etc. Nothing human about this Batman? Lol, that is the fucking point, he must be an intimidating creature of the night, a symbol, and not a fucking whine baby giving a wise speech before each punch.

    I've been a Bat-fan ever since I was just a tot. _89_ (or at least one TV re-edit) was my introduction. That being said, in more recent years, I've come to appreciate that it _is_ very all-over-the-place.
    In fact, it's desperately in need of some streamlining here and there. I was watching a video on _Tim Burton's Batman Forever_ when it hit me that the return to Axis Chemicals should have been the whole climax instead of a Bat-afterthought. Scrap the Cathedral; scrap the parade; scrap the Batwing, memorable though it is.
    The main thrust could have been the same: Batman sneaks in, deals with some random thugs, finds Joker. Except this time he's putting in remote-control Bat-bombs to blow the thing to hell.
    This would have the effect of ending the Joker where he began: among the toxic waste vats. You could also have the going-up-the-tower thing, perhaps followed by a Batwing rescue just as it blows up.

    Can I just mention that I believe you started out saying Burton focused too much on Bruce Wayne and not on Batman and then you end by saying there wasn't enough about Bruce Wayne. (Which btw isn't completely wrong. The representation of Wayne is scarce at best, but it's kind of confusing. What the conclusion is when it counteracts the opening argument.
    I like your reviews though. Keep making them =)
    Btw: If BvS wasn't such a fucking character assassination of both Superman and Batman, wouldn't it have been a great movie? I mean... I know people complained about the serious tone as compared to Marvel movies, but I kind of liked that. I don't want every movie to be Thor Ragnarok, nor would I WANT every movie to be Thor Ragnarok. As an example, Logan was a fucking smash hit. And nobody complained about how it was too serious. But Logan kept itself true to the characters.
    I think BvS would have been fantastic if Znyder understood the characters just.... a little bit better.

    Dude bob kane did created batman along with others just like stan lee and tim Burton i dont care if he reads a comic for one..batman did kill his enemys in issue number 1 frist comic and used guns because of what the world made him who he is and him to go out and train to become batman...lets brake this down first of all batman year one was a good movie and it brakes down bruce and batman all in one and into 1989's part in the movie. 1. In batman year one hes just got started in batman once after in gotham hes been in so many brawls before dawning cape and cowl hes besn in cage fights and lasted 48 hours without a brake true fact plus yes he was suicidle he wanted to kill himself once after a bat a bat flew into his window and got what he needed within himself to become batman tim Burton is a different story. Now after the end of year one jim gordon showed a joker card at the end to show joker was coming and in tims version makes up for it by this
    2. Batmans 1989 takes place in after batman year one by this hes been out for while and un his prime and hes been shot many of times to where his suit was upgraded and bulletproof so he can survive the night once again as batman giving the illusion that ge does not die and the stuff he went though in year one was at his end coming into his own version of year two as batman so its taken his tole and as the comic version and 1989s film its done its justice but one area that his a down fall to it..was the only fact that he could not move his head right if only that he moves his head more like Christian bales batman dark knight movie it would have been more of an Amazingly batman movie of all times.
    Tim is just a asswhole who does not pay anymind to details.

    Batman killing is the biggest problem in the movie. But is not as bad as it was in BvS, because:
    1- It not try to be badass as Zack Snyder
    2- In Batman 1966 we saw Batman for the first time. In Batman 1989 we saw how dark was Batman. In Nolan Trilogy, we saw his rules. Its a progression.
    Its still a problem? Yes. But not as bad as BvS problem.

    I was 16 when Batman came out. I had my first job: at a movie theater. The summer of Batman was my first summer there. At the time, when everything was on film, the projectionists would sometimes run the film to test it, so the manager invited everyone to come see it the day before it premiered. I can't convey how profound was this movie's impact on me. It caused the comic boom of the 90's--the creation of Deadpool, Spawn and stories that are now taken as canon. That said, I have always thought of the '89 movie as one of the most shallow interpretations of the character of Batman, and all of your points are fully correct. The strength of the movie has always been in its visuals and score--Burton's strengths even now.

    Keep up the good work mate.
    I love watching your break downs of movies, and I believe that this "opinion" of yours on Batman 1989 holds plenty of valid points within it...... and if it diddnt.... It's just and opinion.
    You never shit on anyone in the vids I have watched, and in all fairness, youve pointed out some errors in films that i didnt notice because i was too indulged in the movies at the time.
    certain subtle tones that you point out i have missed over and over again because i just love a superhero movie.
    Anyways my friend, loved this vid and many more you have done, keep up the good work.
    Just wondering what your best Batman movie is, based on keeping it as authentic to the character as possible ?

    As much as I love this movie, it’s not perfect. No film is. But first, the stuff I like.
    Personally, I like how Bruce Wayne keeps all of his pain inward. I especially like the scene where he grieves for his parents in crime alley. Look at his face. No tears, no dialogue, but you can feel the pain he’s going through.
    Secondly, I don’t think The Joker really needs a motivation as a villain. It’s like what Alfred says in The Dark Knight. “Some people just want to watch the world burn.” In The Dark Knight, The Joker’s motivation is to spread anarchy and chaos, but Nicholson just is anarchy and chaos. He’s just evil for the sake of being evil, and he fucking loves it. That I think is way more messed up than when you give him an actual motivation. The more ambiguous The Joker is, the more mysterious and interesting he is.
    I also don’t have a problem with The Joker being the killer of Batman’s parents. I believe it makes the conflict between them more personal.
    Also the music, and the look of this movie is great.
    Also also, I love the action in this movie.
    And now onto the stuff I don’t like.
    I don’t like how The Joker is focused on more than Batman. I would’ve preferred a Batman movie that delved more into Batman’s psyche and focused on him more.
    I also don’t like how Batman kills people in this movie, and in Batman Returns. What I think could’ve made the twist of Joker killing Batman’s parents better is if Batman didn’t kill, and instead decided to bring him in because if he kills the Joker, he’s no better than him. It’s like in the Killing Joke when Gordon tells Batman to bring Joker in by the book to show him that their way works. I think that would’ve been way better than having Batman kill The Joker.
    Overall, even though this movie isn’t my favourite Batman movie, (Mask of the Phantasm is (if you want to know why, watch the Nostalgia Critic’s video on it)) I do still love this movie.
