Is it weird that I think The Dark Knight was the ONLY good live-action Batman movie? Outside of it and Mask Of The Phantasm, I think every other Batman movie released to theaters was either underwhelming (Adam West's Batman movie, Batman Begins, The Dark Knight Rises, Batman v Superman, Justice League) or outright terrible (Batman, Batman Returns, Batman Forever, and Batman And Robin).
Still haven't seen The Lego Batman Movie yet, although I DO own the Blu-Ray. Feel free to shame me for it.
Edit: Wait, I never actually saw Batman and Robin. I'm just going by reputation. I thought the first three 90's Batman movies were awful, and I didn't want to actually have to watch a movie that was supposedly worse than all of them. Mea culpa: I never saw it.
A decent story without a million holes you can poke in it. Tim Burton is one of the most overrated directors in Hollywood. The only movies he's made that I've liked were Pee-Wee's Big Adventure, Beetlejuice, and Ed Wood. I even think The Nightmare Before Christmas is far too overpraised.
All that is good to hear. Taking a break is what this project desperately needed, and maybe now that he, and maybe the WB itself, have had a chance to recharge to reevaluate some things the movie can actually take it's time to be better
Firstly, I'm glad Ben is out of rehab and seeming on the road to recovery .
As far as his playing Batman...well, there've been a lot of false starts and a lot of "Maybe's" when it comes to his Batman, so I'm not really sure what's going to happen one way or another. I would like to see him come back though .
If you have Starz Encore Family (Not Kids & Family, but Family...) 1 hour as of this post, they'll be playing "Inspector Gadget Saves Christmas" and "Sonic Christmas Blast". (3:19pm-4:06pm EST) Both will play again at some point.
