In the tall grass (netflix)

Bit of an odd one, started off ok then got weirder as the movie progressed.

Batman and Robin.

 

Yeah, I know the movie is notorious, and that's exactly why I wanted to watch it, see for myself just how bad it really is. And yes, it is very bad. Music is meh, the plot is basic with no twists and nothing interesting going on, there's zero character development, the CGI is crap, everything looks like plastic with lots of smoke to look more fancy than it really is, the Bat costumes and vehicles look super cheap, Freeze looks goofy as fuck and just like everyone else, has zero character development and only throws cold puns and laughs, and the fights... well, there's barely any "fights".

 

Bane? Nah, brainless brute who looks like a balloon filled with helium. Batman? Far too weak, barely serious, smiles and jokes way too much. Frankly, Clooney was a relatively decent Bruce Wayne, but as a Batman he was terrible (let's not even mention Batgirl and Robin... ). Alfred wasn't too bad though.

 

Indeed, it has no redeeming qualities, and comparing it with all the other Batman movies is insulting. It sits at 3/10 on IMDB for good reason, stuff's whack. But it was fun to watch - because it's hilariously bad. An obvious, effortless, and soulles cash-grab.

Edited by seed : I meant B&R, not Forever, oops.

@seed That was actually Batman & Robin (Batman Forever was Val Kilmer, with a surprisingly fantastic performance by Jim Carrey as Riddler).

 

But hey... Batman & Robin gave us this magnificently glorious scene...

Santa Sangre (1989) - cool psychedelic, surrealistic shit. Wikipedia: "Mexican-Italian avant-garde horror film directed by Alejandro Jodorowsky".

Batman Forever.

 

So it is done, I've seen the 90s Batman movies. Well, I daresay this movie is actually not half bad. The story is good, the acting is solid (though Riddler is a bit too goofy and Two-Face slightly underdeveloped), the effects are good, the first are well choreographed, and it explores the characters.

 

It's clearly built upon the foundation of Keaton, and frankly, Kilmer is both an underrated Bruce Wayne and Batman. He does his job well. Maybe not the best, but not the worst either. Considering that the cast is almost the same as in B&R, and it's also directed by the same guy, it only proves that he was capable of making a... well, maybe not a solid or great Batman movie, but a competent one. It has its flaws, in fact the final part is a bit weak and gets quite a bit cheesy there, and the crappy design of the suit is first seen here (Robin's looks great, the experimental suit of Batman is, I think, the same as the one seen in Clooney's film - trash). The design of the Bat stuff was also good, except the Batmobile (this director sure loves his lights...).

 

It would appear I am quite picky about those iconic assets, and this Batmobile is... simply a bit riced. Up to this day it seems Keaton's Batmobile remains my favorite, that design was just too fucking good. Shame it was never reused in movies, but at the same it, that was a design that belonged in the 90s, it wouldn't fit the tone and style of nowadays' Batman movies, just like the comic art style and atmosphere of Gotham from Keaton's duology wouldn't fit today, just 2 things that really are a testament to this period.

It still fits cartoons, but live action movies? Not so much. I can never see this car in Bale's or Affleck's movies.

 

Another thing I can't see nowadays would also be Batman Returns' take on the Penguin:

... and Catwoman's suit. I loved the more morbid (and less human) take on the Penguin in this movie, reminds me of the Uncle Fester from the '90s Addams Family movies.

 

Overall, I'm glad I watched Batman Forever. No, it's not really on par with Keaton's duology thanks to the lackluster final part, and being a bit too cheesy and corny in others, but it doesn't belong in the trash along with B&R either. It's fun, enjoyable, with flaws, yes, but it's decent and competent. The series should have stopped after Batman Returns, they never gave Tim Burton the opportunity to do what he wanted anyway, so no wonder both Keaton and him left after 2 movies.

I saw "Killer Nerd". It's a movie from the early 90's, but the style and cameras looked even a little older than that.

  It's kind of Lovey Dovey, you know, Nerdy. The guy has real Nerd problems, not made up ones. So, it takes sadistic twist after sadistic twist, using lines that are classic or lines that will stick with you and become instant classics. Lines like

   "He aint had pu$$y since pu$$y had him!"

 The dialog is real catchy.

  Long story short, I say watch it. You would miss too much if you didn't see this one and just said you saw it.

No problem - it's available on youtube. If you don't understand language, dialogs in this movie isn't important at all. :D

 

P.S. 

 

 

Plot: crazy satanist's gang infected by rabies. :)
