I don't see anything wrong with that statement I made. It's simply just my opinion. I'm sure that my opinion is the opposite of yours, but that doesn't make it wrong.
With all your hub-bub and flap-trap about Wizard of Oz and Gone With the Wind and Stagecoach, youre going to call movies WHICH SHAPED THE ENTIRE COMIC BOOK WHICH INSPIRED MORE BATMAN FILMS TO BE MADE old and out of date?
Again, I don't care wether or not Tim Burton's Batman
shaped the comic book, because I don't read that comic book. All I care about is wether the film
tells an interesting story. And while it does, the story isn't as interesting as Nolan's Batman films.
Burton's Batman basically revamped the comic book, increasing sales to the point of spinning off more books, cartoons and video games. This led to Batman Returns and then two shittier Batman films. All this time, BECAUSE OF BURTON'S FILMS, Batman has been the most iconic DC character for 20 years.
....Okay, so what? That really doesn't make Burton's Batman films better than Nolan's. It just means that, at the time, Burton's Batman films led to a lot of different shit. That doesn't make it better.
If Burton's films hadnt done this, Nolan's Batman probably wouldve never been made.
You and I are now talking about two totally different things. You're talking about which film was more inspirational. I'm talking about which film was better. Just because Burton's Batman films were more inspirational, does not automatically make them better films.
I still stand by what I said: Nolan's Batman films are better than Burton's, and Burton's films are beginning to feel old and dated.
I don't think that can be a bad thing. I always like the Burton films better because I like the atmosphere that those movies had. Not to mention I always found Michael Keaton better as Batman and Danny Elfman's music score is much better. I was never a fan of Nolan's take of the character while Burton's films feel like a comic book movie.
Keaton is a better Batman, but that is the only thing, IMO, that the Burton's Batman films have over Nolan's Batman films. Everything else, Nolan does better. Better stories, better supporting casts, better villains, better acting, even better atmosphere. Burton's atmosphere is very comic bookish, which isn't a bad thing, but Nolan's atmosphere is dark, yet realistic. To me, having a more realistic atmosphere will always triumph over a comic bookish atmosphere, even in a movie based off a comic book.
