On June 16, we celebrate 25 years of Batman Forever, Starring Val Kilmer as Bruce Wayne/ Batman with Tommy Lee Jones as Two-Face and Jim Carrey as the Riddler.
Please join me for Batman Forever 25 Anniversary watch along on June 16 at 6:00pm PST/9:00pm EST.
While this movie is not on (sadly) DC Universe at this time,
If you have this movie on DVD, Blu-ray, 4K Ultra HD or on a streaming service without commercial, put that on. And use your computer, phone or tablet to post on this thread. See you there!
Unpopular opinion, but this was my favorite of the 4 films. Wish I could make it, but I can’t. Hope you have a great turnout though!!!
I liked it well enough. I could’ve lived without the nipples though.
I can’t believe this flick is 25! Dating myself, I saw it in the theater with friends: we waited in line for hours, leaving incredibly disappointed. I have access to it, maybe I’ll join if I’m available.
I loved this as a kid and went through points in my life where I judged it, then after understand what it was my love for it came back.
Hello everybody, we’re just 1 week away from the Batman Forever 25th anniversary watch along!
Noticed Reganfan78 changed their icon, I do love me some Hank Williams Sr.!
Thankyou, I’m glad you like it.
Me too, dude! I was a grumpy teen when it was released. I remember watching the audio commentary with Schumacher a long time ago and I took a totally different position on the film.
Also, as a total film snob, this movie has truly remarkable cinematography. Just saying.
It was his commentary that helped change my view too. I began to see it not as a sequel to returns but as a modern take on the batman 66 universe.
Yeah. Once I started looking at at as a Dick Sprang comic brought to life it helped a lot. I enjoy it now. It’s silly, comfort food. I don’t even consider it a part of the Batman 89 universe. There isn’t enough connective tissue. It’s really a reboot. Retells the origin. Doesn’t talk about previous events.
Now, Batman and Robin doesn’t work. Even Schumacher talks about how he lost all creative control to the studio with that mess.
Oof, now I’m trying to choose between doing this and doing the WAL for the Doom Patrol season finale…
I love Batman Forever. It’s absolutely my favorite of the Burton/Schumacher quadrilogy, and not only one of my favorite live-action Batman movies, but a favorite live-action DC flick in general.
However, I won’t be at the WAL due to other commitments. I’ll be here in spirit with you, @Reaganfan78!
As time has gone on, I’ve come to enjoy this movie, but at the time I hated it, from the opening heist scene, the colors, the way the music flourished, I groaned to my friends, that it was like Batman '66, which I have always adored, but I was disappointed back then, because what we loved about Burton’s films was bringing back the dark side of the Dark Knight. I didn’t want to go back to camp. Again, I’ve come to appreciate the film all these years later, and while I’d like to watch along tonight, like Vroom, I can’t but will be there is spirit. Have Fun Everyone!!!
How often can you celebrate a 25th anniversary though?
Yesterday I think was the 15 year for Batman Begins. Batman has been a huge part of my life. 89 Batman was the first movie I remember watching in theaters. I’ve been hooked ever since. I can remember vividly were I was 25 years ago. I was watching Batman forever. Lol
Ditto. I can tell you who I saw each of the films in this series with. It’s freaky.
Please do tell.
Just found this, the original opening for the movie. From what I understand, Forever is one of those movies that was heavily cut for content, so much so that after the announcement of Zack Snyder’s Justice League some were suggesting #releasetheforevercut.
50 more minutes til the watch along, I sure would like to see director cut of Batman Forever, had the movie been longer, it might have even been better! #releasetheforevercut!
