  • Looking back at Batman from a distance after all the hype has dried up and the franchise has at least temporarily been abandoned it's easy to see the movie for what it is: a moderately diverting motion picture that should have been shorter and better paced.

The best thing that can be said about Batman is that it led to Batman Returns , which was a far superior effort.

  • Well, Led Zeppelin IV! That's it really. I'll tell you why the album had no title - because we were so fed up with the reactions to the third album, that people couldn't understand why that record wasn't a direct continuation of the second album.

That way, either people like it or they don't... but we still got bad reviews!
