The Batman film franchise “rebooted” a few years ago, with Christian Bale taking on the role of the caped crusader in Batman Begins and continuing with The Dark Knight. The two newest films have earned hundreds of millions of dollars worldwide, and are clearly a hit with fans. But even so, I thought the older films from the ’90s were pretty entertaining, which is why I want to buy this Batman DVD Collection.
The Batman DVD Collection features the following four films: Batman (1989), Batman Returns (1992), Batman Forever (1995), and Batman & Robin (1997). Three different actors played Batman in those films (Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer, and George Clooney), which kind of detracted from the quality, but I loved some of the villains, including Tommy Lee Jones as Two-Face, Uma Thurman as Poison Ivy, Jim Carrey as the Riddler, and Arnold Schwarzenegger as Mr. Freeze.
I’ve seen each of the films only once, and not since their theatrical release, so I don’t even remember what happened in any of them. Watching this DVD collection would be like seeing them all for the first time again.
I don’t think any bonus features are included, but with the collection being on sale for $10.98, I think I can live with that! Four movies for less than 11 bucks plus free shipping? Maybe I’ll get two, so I can give one away as a stocking stuffer when Christmas rolls around. Sounds like a plan!
