Val Kilmer is truly awful.


As much as I find Red Letter Media quite grating, they did have what I feel is an accurate observation on Val Kilmer, which is basically he either absolutely goes for it or does not give a fuck and phone's it in. 

For every Willow, you get something like this film :lol:

I've still never seen Batman & Robin, despite owning it on blu-ray for several years. :ph34r:

I went through a phase of thinking it wasn’t actually that bad. My kids seem to enjoy it when they watched it and I just felt it was in line with the tv series.


Oh how i laugh now

Batman credit card.


Never leave the cave without it.


So many bad things happen in Batman and Robin but this bit always sticks with me.

At least it's got Arnie chewing up the screen. 

I remember quite a few years ago, walked into the living room where my housemate was watching it on TV, howling with laughter. 
I heard a couple of terrible puns in quick succession and just turned round and went to bed.


These days I embrace bad films as long as they’re entertaining.

Tommy Lee Jones is chewing all of the scenery in good style. Jim Carrey is just being Jim Carrey and this was peak irritating Carrey before he started trying to actually act.



It was in the making of this film that Lee Jones famously told Jim Carrey "I cannot sanction your buffoonery"

No love for Batman '66?
It can hold it's own. 

Amazingly stupid. 


Was about to say. You need to get that watched too. It's got its own charm about it.

I think Nicole Kidman's first words in Batman Forever are "hot entrance" to which my mate said, quick as a whip "I bet she has".  A high watermark for a teenage Brummie.


In related news, another of my friends somehow got a job doing test screenings/audience research (he's in TV now).  At one point in a test screening for "Batman and Robin" one of the audience shouted out "death to Joel Schumacher!".  It wasn't even the end of the film.


It still cracks me up thinking about how much it cracked my mate and his colleagues up at the time.


As a piece of criticism, "death to Joel Schumacher!" Is the briefest and most damning review I can ever think of, especially as this was from an audience member who was actually being paid to watch the movie in the first place.  LOL.

My stream on Batman & Robin died right near the end. To be honest I’m not sure I’ll go back and watch the rest.


I thought Forever was bad, but that was entertaining all the way through. Utterly ridiculous, but the main problem was it seemed poorly made and the whole reason for the film existing couldn’t actually display any kind of emotion other than maybe boredom.


The sequel, though, is unspeakably boring, which is a far worse crime.

It looks superb, compared to the previous one, minus some ropey CG.

Clooney seems a little embarrassed but is actually displaying emotions. Uma Thurman does a great job hamming it up, Arnie is Arnie. 
The set ups are still ridiculous and it at least has a story this time, other than “baddies want to kill the goodies”, but it’s all so dull. The motorbike race scene was the most tedious race scene I’ve ever seen.


Also, ice blades.

Act three of The Dark Knight Rises owes the '66 film a lot. 

I still can’t tell whether that was deliberate. My face through the entire finale first time:
