Favorite Quote: “Eat floor, high fiber.”
Ah, my favorite of the franchise. This outing is a perfect fusion of Batman and Tim Burton, in which Burton is given free reign. Yes, there was a time when saying to Tim Burton, “Go on, do whatever the hell you like” would result in something pretty damned awesome. As opposed to now when… You know what? Let’s not get into it. It’s too depressing.
Michael Keaton is back, and luckily for him, the suit has been altered somewhat to allow for a better range of motion in his performance.
