Okay. I have to say this. I was wrong. I was wrong about the Tim Burton Batman movies being better than the Christopher Nolan Batman movies. Yesterday, I watched Batman (1989) and Batman Returns. Today, I watched Batman Begins and the Dark Knight. And, I have to say that the Nolan movies are better. I still love the Burton movies, but I can't deny that the Nolan movies are better. So, just wanted to give a notice that now, I say the Nolan movies are better. So, I can't wait to see the Dark Knight Rises.

Sh! Be quiet...we've been wanting the reaction we got, don't get him to change it. And how dare you say the Burton Batman movies are better...LOL

@BlueLantern1995: I didn't say they were better, because we would need some type of parameter to objectively quantify quality to know which one is better. I said I liked them more

You are correct: the Nolan movies are better. As movies.

The Burton Batman films, I'm tempted to say, are better Batman movies.

There really is no right answer or need for apology in this matter. To say that one director's take on the Caped Crusader in movies was better is a mere idea of subjectivity. The Burton movies were great for giving us the "dark/comic atmosphere" that the Batman felt from his origins in 1939 whereas the Schumacher films were....heh...a throwback to the Adam West days in all honesty. The Nolan films finally just showed to the movie audience that a superhero movie didn't have to be all campy and pulpy in order to be successful, that superheroes like the Dark Knight could be steeped in reality. So, I guess what I'm trying to say is...apology accepted, but just unnecessary ^^

So that guy running around in a bat costume beating up psychopaths after getting trained in martial arts because he lost his parents to a mugger's gun was.... just a guy in a bat costume beating up psychopaths after getting trained in martial arts because he lost his parents to a mugger's gun?

Noted.

the burton movies were closer to the comics. the problem with the noloan movies is that the nolan batman changed a whole lot of stuff around. im still a little irked that robin's name is john blake in the movie.

That would be true if the Halle Berry movie had anything to do with the Catwoman of comics. It had a different origin, unfamiliar enemies, new costume, different motives and personality, and many other things that were off.

This is not true for the Burton Batman movies.

I mentioned X-Men as well. However, my point was addressing Nolan's Batman, not Burton's. Burton's Batman actually reminded me of...well...Batman

@White Mage: The same applies for Nolan's Batman.

I could run through the X-Men, but I don't like them so meh :P

@White Mage: @InnerVenom123: There's a difference between prefering one movie and ragging on the other. If you didn't care for Nolan's films that fine, but don't lambast them with asinine criticism, same with the Burton movies. Thats childish.

A. There is no space on the internet. It's infinite.

B. Even if that was true, that's not a reason to lock something.
