Batmen

Always on call. For a sequel.

Over at Alex on Film I’ve been watching a bunch of movies relating to Batman. I say “relating to Batman” because the first and last movie I watched don’t have Batman in them. But the first was only a cheap joke trying to cash in on the popularity of the Batman TV series and Joker just underlines how the villains Batman faces are usually a lot more interesting than Batman himself. I didn’t include Halle Berry’s Catwoman (2004) but it would have been another example of the same phenomenon (the Batman movie minus Batman).

There hasn’t been a great Batman movie, and there have been quite a few very bad ones. For some reason he’s been hard to get right.
