For the past 2-3 months, Whorli has been bugging me as to why I don’t own the older Batman movies (I have both of the recent ones). So a few weeks ago, I picked up one of the budget packs that has all 4 movies on 2 DVDs in 1 case (I have the same thing for The Matrix). Cost like 10 bucks. We’ve been watching them… and it’s hilarious how bad the scripts are on the 1st 2 and how terrible Michael Keaton is. Tommy Lee Jones is just plain annoying throughout the 3rd, although I can never get enough Jim Carrey from that era. Overall, it’s like most things I remember from my youth… not nearly as good as I remember.
It really makes me not want to re-watch Fraggle Rock… because the actual show can’t possibly live up to my memory of how kick ass the show was (Whorli got me a DVD of the show last year). I was sorely disappointed rewatching The Neverending Story and the early 90s animated X-Men.
PS – I’m Batman.
