Seeing "Birdman" the other week got me thinking.

Why is/was Tim Burton's 1989 Batman film so great?

To this day I still love it and yet Michael Keaton wasn't quite right for the part and Jack Nicholson was practically chewing the scenery he was overacting so much.

So my follow-up question is, was Batman only great back then or is it still great now? and why?


I still like it. At the time, it was the coolest movie ever, and it's lost that shine, but I think it is still a lot of fun. Burton's setting is very comic booky and I love some of the Joker scenes. I appreciate the soundtrack more now than I did then.
I can't get my kids to watch it. They can be so stubborn.
