041. Bonus – Batman

Bonus time for y’all this Tuesday! We dive into the monumental release of Tim Burton’s Batman, not without severe criticism I might add. We get Michael Keaton playing Bruce Wayne, Jack Nicholson playing Jack Napier and Kim Basinger, the love interest, portraying Vicki Vale. Does this superhero film hold up to scrutiny 31 years later? How about that transfer onto the 4K format? Get ready for a rant by tapping on that Play Button for all of the grimy little details!

A cordial thanks goes out to Shawn Taylor from the Central Time Zone of Indianapolis who suggested Batman from ’89, as this is a flick his friends say look good on 4K. BillChete describes his thoughts before the review on superhero films and how there is no sentimental value with this genre of movies to him.

Tune in now, you might be surprised at what you hear!
