Episode 266

Recommended Posts

Though it might have reshaped how the world saw Batman, and led directly to the creation of Batman: The Animated Series, Tim Burton's Batman (1989) is a seriously flawed film with bland characters, numerous plot holes and a Batman who has no qualms about killing. Let the ranting begin! [ 3:08:35 || 86.3 MB ]

I'm excited to hear this one. I don't know if you guys get into it but a book I'm reading right now posits Batman being an early example of Blockbuster by committee. There's a story of Nicholson carrying Basigner up to the top of the tower:

Jack: "Why are we going up here?"

Burton: "The studio wanted a tower scene."

Jack: "What are we doing when we get there?"

Burton: "I don't know."

What book is that? I think I may have read it.

As long as we aren't talking about me, go nuts.

After all, everyone knows I'm the hottest Irish/German/French guy around here.

The only thing I'm going to say About Batman 89 is there are 2 AWESOME things:

#1 The Batmobile is fuckin cool!!

#2 The Diet Coke and McDonalds Commericals with the Batmobile :laugh: :laugh: :D:D

I just finished listening to the episode and all I can say is the following:

Earth-2.net The Show Episode 266 Batman 1989: The James & Ian Show

only because I think Mike's seething hatred and utter shock took him over and left him speechless other then the fact we hear a loud "THUD" For the majority of the episode it's James and Ian talking about the movie and Mike pipes up whenever there's an opinion to be made.

EXCELLENT episode

AND I still say The Datk Knight episode should be some mildstone episode # such as 270-275-280, I know I have to be patient but still can't help expressing my opinion AND if schedules permit it should be Mike, Jenny, James, and Ian as a roundtable type discussion.

those are my 2 cents can't wait for more episodes and of course WFP37

Man, Mike's head-banging was classic.

I might actually make an mp3 of mike's headbanging maybe Ian will and use it in some sort of tribute to E-2 TS LOL :laugh: :laugh: :D:D

By the way, if I win that, it will be opened! In fact, I have the perfect place for our pal Bob the Goon: right next to my Darkseid figure.
