Reply Subj: Re: Batman Returns is one of my favorite movies. I like this film as much as I like Nolan's Dark Knight Trilogy.

    The difference in style comes from the sensibilities of the two directors and also their main influences :

    - Tim Burton : gothic horror monsters, retrofuture, film noir, Tod Browning , Lon Chaney, Friedrich Wilhelm Murnau, Robert Wiene, ...

Lon Chaney! Interesting...

    - Christopher Nolan : tech noir, hardboiled, thrillers, James Bond, Ridley Scott, Tony Scott, Michael Mann, A Tale of Two Cities ...

A Tale of Two Cities! Interesting...

    I think that the Smylex commercial in Batman 1989 was a brilliant idea. So was Joker luring the citizens of Gotham to a parade with the promise of free money.

Jack Nicholson's execution of that idea was equally brilliant. Even when I was against the movie for reasons I now find silly, I recognized the genius of Nicholson. Also I've always loved the Prince soundtrack.

    And there are the excellent production designs of Anton Furst (Batman 1989) and Bo Welch (Batman Returns).

Gotham City has never looked cooler than in Burton's films.

    For example, the rendition of the Batmobile by Tim Burton & Anton Furst has become one of the most iconic movie cars ever.

Far and away my favorite Batmobile, even surpassing the 1960s version, which is my second favorite.

They are follow-ups or sequels to previous movies that were awesome and set the bar very high for the sequels.

Montalbon as Khan

The three Kryptonian villains

And of course, jack as joker
