Batman ★★★½

“Tell me something, my friend. You ever dance with the devil in the pale moonlight? I always ask that of all my prey. I just... like the sound of it.”

I don’t know if this movie has aged too well, it is pretty old but it’s still a lot of fun.
I know I saw this when I was younger, but I remember absolutely nothing!
I do consider Jack Nicholson to be my favorite actor and wow does he really go all out as joker! 😂

Did you know?
Robin Williams was offered the role of Joker when Jack Nicholson hesitated. He had even accepted the role, when producers approached Nicholson again and told him Williams would take the part if he did not. Nicholson took the role, and Williams was released. Williams resented being used as bait, and not only refused to play Riddler in Batman Forever (1995) but also refused to be involved in any Warner Bros. productions until the studio apologized.

Michael Keaton, who calls himself a "logic freak", was concerned that Batman's secret identity would, in reality, be fairly easy to uncover, and discussed ideas with Tim Burton to better disguise the character, including the use of contact lenses. Ultimately, Keaton decided to perform Batman's voice at a lower register than when he was portraying Bruce Wayne. This technique became a staple of future portrayals of Batman in film, television, and video games, especially those of Kevin Conroy and Christian Bale. (IMDb)

Michael Keaton came up with the famous "I'm Batman" line. The line in the script was "I am the night". (IMDb)
