Bothare joined by special guests Mike Ortiz and Damon Shaw of , Tsyto and Mike and Max of for this commentary on the 1989 film Batman.
There was a lot of anticipation in the summer of 1989 as this new version of Batman was nearing release. It had been many years since Batman graced the screens of our nations cinemas and many people feared it would be a let down. Some even thought it would be a catastrophe. However, Batman turned out to be a critical and financial success that ecplised doubters and naysayers.
Does the film still hold up after all these years? Is this film more noir than its sequels? Is Michael Keaton the best Batman? Does the charasmatic Joker overshadow all the other characters?
These are some of the questions The Minions and our guests ponder.
From Tysto Commentaries:
Batman is back! Keaton starts his role as Batman against the greatest villain he has ever known: Alexander Knox! I join, Commentary Track Stars, and Geek Fights for a free-for-all. We mostly like the film but have a lot of fun with its ridiculousness.
