FINAL REVIEW | EPISODE #21 “Batman” (1989) (Dir. Tim Burton)

In honor of the release of Matt Reeves’ The Batman this past weekend, Claudio and Oz head back to the Gotham City of Keaton, Nicholson, Basinger, and Burton. The hosts discuss Batman’s critical place in the legacy and growth of superhero/comic book movies, the glory of the world building, and the ways the film has aged. Topics this week include deep dives into the careers of Tim Burton, Michael Keaton, Kim Basinger, and the legend Jack Nicholson. Finally, the Final Review boys wrap by discussing the ranking of the entire Batman franchise from ‘66 to ‘22.
