Batman ('89) is my favorite of all of the Batman movies. Part of that is that it's from my youth, but it was also just so much fun. It was dark, but light-hearted... serious, but didn't take itself too seriously. It was also just oozing with atmosphere, from the great score to the sets to the costumes to vision and direction. Tim Burton established himself as a master with how well all of that came together to produce something so cohesive and unique. All in all, it was such a cool and fun movie in '89, and still is, IMO. It didn't try to be heady like the current trilogy; it was just great escapism and one of the most fun movies of the 80s.

In case anyone else started humming the epic theme music and was about to visit YouTube to listen to it, I'll save you the trip...
