The only movie I didn't like of the four recent Bat-movies was the last one. There were some good parts in it - you had to search REALLY hard to find them - but for the most part, the movie didn't even take itself seriously, so I didn't either. The only aspect of the movie that seemed to have any respectability at all was the subplot with Alfred dying - but that was usually ruined every time his "niece", Barbara, entered the scene.
Though I'd say none of the Bat-movies are PERFECT, I do like the first three a whole lot for varying reasons, and would give them all "A" ratings. Yes, even BATMAN FOREVER was a good movie. Unlike most fans out there, I didn't mind the neon - Gotham CAN have SOME colour, after all. The theme of the movie was pretty dark, too. I thought that the introduction of Robin was handled very well, and the Riddler's obsessiveness over Bruce was great, too. I didn't mind the fact that he was hyper and campy - of all the Batman villains used today, I think that the Riddler is the only one that can get away with being over-the-top campy and silly and still work. (I guess Frank Gorshin's original performance has outlasted the test of time.) The only downside was how Two-Face was handled - he was too hyper and often pushed aside in any of his scenes, later on in the movie. In all honesty, he was the main villain of the film, but never really got to do much once he hooked up with the Riddler. He should've been the cold, calculating counterpoint to the wacky Riddler in their scenes - no one can be zanier than Jim Carrey, so why Schumacher tried to make Jones match that is beyond me.
I look forward to the director's cut of the movie, whenever it comes out. This movie had the best script of all four Batman movies - the novel prooves it - I just want to see the three hour version to prove it to myself.
Burton's movies were, of course, great and generally better recieved, despite the fact Batman killed and the Penguin was such a freak. I liked those versions of the characters, though; the dark fairy tales Burton told (especially notable in BATMAN RETURNS) were excercises in terrific filmmaking.
