Also it's been a while since I've seen Mr. Schroeder make an article.
I have to admit this is my second favorite Batman movie. I'm actually more fond of Batman Returns as it's a lot more fun than the original, but that being said, it still holds up well and I do have the steelbook bluray version.
I must also confess that while I've, until recently re-watching this, gave Keaton a lot of personal crap for playing Batman, but he does, as Pfeiffer points out, have a really intense gaze as Batman. Just watch his eyes the next time you watch this. Sadly, this era's Batman probably showed him doing more detective work, albeit not all that much, than the Nolan films did. I also think that both Nicholson and Ledger pulled off two parts of the Joker's personality very well. Nicholson's was thoroughly charismatic while Ledger's really stressed the criminal genius aspect of him. I like both portrayals equally.
This was totally worth watching. Can't wait for issue 3. G Man's Malekith sounded like a cross between Christopher Walken and some else I can't place, perhaps Paul Reubens? Loved the washing machine as Mjolnir credit.
