Now that you've pointed out that there isn't one already, I'm kind of grouchy. Thanks a lot, submitter.

How about one big set that has all of those and the Adam West movie?  Maybe all the animated movies too?

$52 and I'd only watch two of those movies.  Na...I'd rather just buy the first Burton/Keaton Batman movie and skip the others.

Schumaker's pennance should be to set up a contest where 20 winners get to go to a dinnner party with Arnold, Tommy Lee Jones, Jim Carrey, Alicia Silverstone, Uma Thurman, Chris O'Donnell, George Clooney, and fat Val Kilmer.

Ah, the great Batman debate. The way I see it, if you like your Batman movies to be more about the Batman and less about Bruce Wayne and less about the detective work and more about the action scenes then Burton's movies are your cup of tea. But if you are more about Bruce Wayne and his journey as well as more of the crime thriller point of view of The Detective, then Nolan's your choice.

Who is right? They both are. It's just a matter of choice.

/personally, I love a good crime thriller, so you know my choice.

mekki: Burton's movies are your cup of tea


I still remember seeing Burton's in 1989. It was the summer I'd gotten chicken pox. As soon as I was over it, my dad took me on an epic journey across Phoenix to my dad's preferred theater at the time.

For the longest time, I thought the line was "This town needs an enemy." My dad never saw fit to correct me. :-)

I usually don't care about boxed sets, but I did get the Blade Runner collector's edition, and if there's one of Breaking Bad at some point in the future, I will get that.

I have a hard time choosing between the Burton or Nolan Batman movies.  I just know that Batman and day-glo don't go together and the only bat-nipples I want to see are Batgirl's.

Heh. I remember asking my dad about that line. "Dad, what's an enema?" He simple told me not to worry about it. I had to look it up myself and even then I was still kind of confused. But, hey, I was a kid. I like your way of thinking better.

Nolan's Batman trilogy are some of my favorite films of all time, yet I haven't watched them often. I've seen Batman Begins and The Dark Knight maybe three times a piece and The Dark Knight Rises once (not counting clips on YouTube that I'll watch randomly).

I feel the same way about movies like The Lord of the Rings - I love them, but I'm not sure they lend themselves to routine viewings. I'm not even sure what became of my Batman Begins DVD because I watched it so infrequently.

I liked it.  It was sort of a let down because the previous movie was so fun to watch, but it's good.  I wish it hadn't suddenly gone all Agatha Christie at the end.

I liked it too, but the big reveal about the baddie was obvious, and the love story actually turned Bane into less of a badass.  It would have been more interesting if he just helped out because it was the morally correct thing to do.  His sudden end was a little abrupt, too.  He should have made a bigger stand.

I loved the character development of Bruce, Bane, and thought the ending was perfect for TDKR. My only issue with it was that the pacing was off. Still, even though it's not as good as Batman Begins on a technical level, the positive aspects make it more enjoyable for me.

Of course, nothing touches The Dark Knight. That was The Empire Strikes Back of the trilogy.

I felt this way at first, but changed my opinion. He got a big final battle and some good lines before getting blown away.

Yep, dude was shot by a farking cannon. It wasn't unrealistic or inappropriate that it killed him instantly. The only thing that may have been less than realistic was that Batman and Catwoman didn't have to scrape Bane-bits out of their eyes.

As a long time Batman fan, I can't even watch the Burton films without wincing. Visually it's great. Plot/tone wise/character wise, it's more childish than the Adam west movies.

What I can't understand is why Batman Forever gets so much hate. People loved that movie when it came out! Then Batman and Robin was so bad, it destroyed any goodwill Forever brought out.

I was going to mention this. My girlfriend got it for me for Christmas.

Most people would only wath the movie part.

The only Super King Kamhamema edition of something that I own is my copy of Halo 3 (Master Chief head bust) and that's because GameStop clearanced them out.

I seem to rewatch movies a lot now since I upgraded to blu-ray and the Nolan box set was one of the first purchases along with Tarantino collection. Can't believe I went so long without high def movies. I can't watch regular DVDs at all now.

This box set looks like a waste just like the scarface one thats on sale for $300.

Yes the sale price is $300.

That was my issue with the movie as well, it felt like they got halfway through it and literally went "Ohh shiat, we gotta wrap this up in 45 minutes..RUSH RUSH RUSH". Just so many details left out that were sorta farking important to the story line.

Wayne 985:
My only issue with it was that the pacing was off.

That's the main problem, I think they packed in too much shiat to tell in one movie. Like the pit prison was referred to as "hell on earth." Yet it didn't seem all that bad to me. The only other prisoners we met seemed like decent guys and we don't really see anyone struggling except for Bruce with his bad back. And an entire city being sieged and held prisoner for months is a story for a whole movie in itself.

But the behind the scenes special features were pretty cool.
 
2013-06-27 11:30:57 AM  
Ultimately, in my opinion of course, all of the Batman movies are fairly forgettable excepting Burton's first and The Dark Knight. So I guess I would consider those the best.
 
2013-06-27 11:32:19 AM  
The editing and pacing of the 2nd and 3rd movies were problematic for me as well. It took me many viewings to figure out certain points in the story. I never had that issue with the first one strangely. For the longest time Batman Begins was my favorite of them all though recently I've been digging TDK more.
 
2013-06-27 11:35:41 AM  
I can't believe there is special feature commemorating James Holmes. WTF?

Of course, nothing touches The Dark Knight. That was The Empire Strikes Back of the trilogy.


It's tough for me to choose between 2 and 3. The first 2/3 of TDK are wonderful and Joker is more fun in his scenes than Bane for the most part, but I really don't care for the last 1/3 of TDK. I don't like how Joker just gets left dangling without much resolution, and I really don't like the whole end sequence with Two Face, it felt like another movie tacked on to the end and was kind of jarring. It's gotten more noticable each time I've seen it.

TDKR has some pacing issues of its own but I prefer Bane as a more serious/chilling brute force vs. the Joker's more random and haphazard schemes (never liked the two boats bit).

Police escort night chase in TDK > most stunts in TDKR
Bane's stock robbery > Joker's opening bank robbery
Plane hijacking, final street sequence in TDKR > the other sequences in TDK (Hong Kong extradition, SWAT team bit)

Just my two cents. Love both of those movies though. The 4 80s/90s movies haven't aged well at all when I watched recently (at least the Burton ones, didn't bother with the last 2) but Adam West still owns.

The end of TDKR, I just wanted someone to say "some days you just can't get rid of a bomb!"

The superior Tim Burton Batman Blu-Ray will be released after it is written, filmed, and released. For now you'll have to content yourself with the old just ok one from 1989.
 
2013-06-27 11:51:41 AM  
I feel like I'm taking crazy pills.  The Dark Knight Rises is a joyless, bloated mess.  None of the fun of the first two, the plot is incomprehensible, very weak use of series characters, and with such a minimal presence of both Wayne and Batman, it feels like it's embarrassed to be a Batman movie.  Yet everyone seems to love it.

I've never seen that or the other animated movies I hear people raving about. Generally speaking, I don't really enjoy non-comedic animation, but I'm starting to think I'm missing out on something.
