Oh Batman. Like a lot of us, I grew up watching the late 80’s and early 90’s Batman films. They were cheesy, yeah, but as a kid they were fun to watch. It was one of the earliest exposures I had to superheroes…and at least for a while, Batman Returns was something I’d watch over and over when my parents asked me which movie I wanted to throw in the VCR.

*sigh*

So sitting here after just now finishing up Nolan’s dark and gritty new Batman trilogy, I can’t help but wonder if I’ll EVER be able to go back and enjoy those old movies again. Granted they got way out of the hand by the time Schwarzenegger was running around with his Freeze Ray, but is there anything in those films left to love?
