I've seen the '89 Batman so many fucking times that I know its lines entirely by heart. "I do what other people only dream. I make art until someone dies. I'm the world's first fully functioning homicidal artist!" I liked Batman Begins as much as the next comic geek, but Michael Keaton will always be the one for me.
I even thought the fucking video game - which I still own, incidentally - was hardcore.
The two other movies that compete with the original Batman are The Crow (I used to rent the VHS every weekend at one point in my life) and Interview with the Vampire (the only role of Cruise's that I thought he was brilliant in. Also, I didn't like the book all that much).
