Despite its corny lines it's a great movie.
on November 6, 2015
I want to start out by saying I am an adult female fan. I have loved Batman as long as I can remember. I bought the Blu Ray when Amazon had it on sale for $8.99
While waiting on it to arrive I watched some clips on YouTube. Every clip I saw I was laughing. The last time I watched this movie I was a kid. My mom bought me the VHS when I was a kid. As a kid it wasn't corny. The trailer had me laughing the entire time. Poor Burt Ward had the corniest lines in the trailer.
Even the date Bruce & Catwoman went on was so corny it was funny. Bruce was a bit dramatic sounding on the date.
End of Spoiler
I do wish Julie Newmar had been Catwoman. Lee Meriwether did a great job but she's no Julie Newmar.
I think the movie is way more corny than the tv show. While I think Adam West is a great Batman he is no Michael Keaton. Ever since I was kid my favorite Batman actor is Michael Keaton. He will always be my favorite Batman.
I could not believe it when I read in a magazine that had a section dedicated to Batman that Bob Kane's favorite Batman is Val Kilmer. I honestly don't see how he thinks Val Kilmer is the best Batman. My two favorite Batman actors are Michael Keaton & Adam West. I like Christian Bale much better than Val Kilmer & George Clooney.
I was sad to read in that magazine that Michael was offered the Batman role in Batman Forever and he turned it down. I can understand him being sick of playing Batman since he played Batman twice. I still wish he had played the role for his fans.
Batman The Movie in my opinion is still a great movie despite the corny lines. Considering it was made in the late 60s the technology and special effects were good. My first two favorite movies are the two Michael Keaton movies then this one.
I ended up buying the Blu Ray since for some reason the regular DVD is no longer available. The regular DVD is $15+ on eBay and they are used. I found it was for once cheaper to buy the Blu Ray version. Amazon very briefly had it at $8.99 and I just couldn't pass up that great price.
