Hey folks!

The day is finally here. The last entry of our Batman retrospective has arrived. And boy is it bad. This movie is widely reviled and rightfully so. There’s really nothing redeeming about it and it seems to be a series of misfires at every level of production from conception all the way to execution. It’s bad, you know this already. Now you get to listen to Zach and myself suffer through this monstrosity and revel in our pain.

Big thanks to Zach once again for taking this journey with me. I t was pretty excruciating by the end of it but it was a ton of fun and I can’t wait to do another project like this.

Hi folks.

Welcome to the third film in our Batman retrospective. I have to say that for as much guff as this movie gets it wasn’t as completely terrible as most people make it out to be. It gets unfavorably and unfairly lumped in with Batman and Robin due the shared director in Joel Schumacher. The more I watch Batman Forever the more I’m convinced that Schumacher had never read a Batman comic going into this project. Instead, his entire history with the character was pulled from the 60’s Batman TV show. While this candy-colored, campy take on the character wasn’t something that audiences wanted then , and probably don’t now either, I think taken in that light it fairs a bit better against the ravages of time than the Burton films.

As usual we’ll be continuing this Batman journey with Zach, who by the end of this movie was probably ready to pack it all up and call it a day. But there was still one giant mistake left to sit through….
