Phenomenal filmmaking...

"Tell me something, my friend. You ever dance with the devil in the pale moonlight?"

When director Tim Burton grasped the reigns of the first serious screen manifestation of the DC Comics superhero, The Dark Knight (a.k.a. Batman), fans were understandably slightly nervous considering the director's little prior experience as a filmmaker. If one inspects director Burton's current r... read more

'' Now comes the part where I relieve you, the little people, of the burden of your failed and useless lives. But remember, as my plastic surgeon always said: if you gotta go... do it with a smile. ''

Gotham City is witnessing its most darkest, and coldest, night in living history. Christopher Nolan stands on the rooftops next to the bat-signal, waiting for his harsh-voiced detective to appear. Sipping on his cup of coffee, Nolan looks into the distance and thinks to himself, "Why am I rebooting Batman? Oh yes, because of those Schumacher disasters.", he pauses to take another sip. Then his min... read more

"Gotham City, New York DC Comics and Batman’s film City, there is neo classical architecture, and at night, crime filled alleys. Why you wouldn’t want to visit: The crime ridden alleys, and of course the many villains and supervillains."

“The only reason why I didn't give this a 10, was that the film itself is a bit too long. But putting that discrepancy aside, this is still a solid and sophisticated film, that is undoubtedly one of Tim Burton's better film efforts along with Edward Scissorhands and Corpse Bride.

The cinematography was spellbinding. The view of Gotham City from the air was brilliantly shot and very well realised. The music by Danny Elfman perfectly matched the cinematography, as that was outstanding. I also liked the mixture of darkness and tragedy wrought into the characters, as is so typical of Burton.

As for the acting, that was equally outstanding. I couldn't think of a better cast for this type of film. Michael Keaten was suitably brooding as Batman, and Kim Basinger matched him won” read more

Batman review

“Frankly, Batman 89 should not have been as successful as it was but they stumbled onto a great marketing gimmick by releasing a trailer that had some bombastic visuals.  Batman cruising around in a missile shaped Batmobile with guns that pop out of the hood.  Breaking through the roof of a museum in that iconic rubber suit.  When that trailer dropped everyone wanted to see Batman because...damn, this was something new. But this movie really doesn't have a cohesive story.  The fatal flaw is that Burton's actions scenes are quite awkward and spaced out by too many scenes where nothing of interest is happening.  When a fight scene finally happens, Vickie Vale screams, Batman dispatches goons in a few karate moves, and they drive off in the Batmobile.  Later, Batman turns on the TV and s” read more

1001 Movies ... my own version (1980's) (120 movies items)

" Notes: Nowadays, Marvel is pretty much ruling the box-office but there was a time when they were nowhere to be found and it was DC who came out with some very successful super-hero features. First, at the end of the 70's, with 'Superman', and then 10 years later with this movie focusing this time on the Dark Knight. I remember it very well when it came out, there was a huge buzz about this movie. Indeed, you could see the famous logo all over the place, there was some Batman merchandising ever"
