Q&A: Tim Burton or Christopher Nolan?

That’s right. Today’s Q&A is all about BATMAN. The latest movie came out today and I want to know what you think of the two sets of Batman movies.

We have the BATMAN (1989) and BATMAN RETURNS (1992) directed by Tim Burton versus the trilogy of BATMAN BEGINS (2005), THE DARK KNIGHT (2008) and THE DARK KNIGHT RISES (2012) directed by Christopher Nolan.

There are pros and cons for each. While Michael Keaton made an amazing Bruce Wayne and gave us the iconic “I’m Batman” line that people love to parody when talking about Batman, Christian Bale is doing a pretty decent job too… so long as you ignore that scratchy voice he uses for Batman.

Jack Nicholson portrayed the Joker as a loveable sociopath but Heath Ledger turned the Joker into a comedic homicidal maniac.

I can’t compare Michelle Pfeiffer’s Catwoman to Anne Hathaway’s yet since I haven’t seen the latest movie. And since Burton didn’t direct that travesty where Bane appeared, I won’t even bring that up.

I guess I can’t really decide until after I see THE DARK KNIGHT RISES, but what about you? Who do you choose in the Battle of the Batman movies — Tim Burton or Christopher Nolan?

  1. I'm back from the third movie and I have to say my hat goes off to Christopher Nolan but I'm all about Tim Burton on this one. I'm sorry. I loved the second Christopher Nolan Batman but I also loved Michelle Pfeiffer's Catwoman. She was less apologetic than Anne Hathaway's and much more fun. Love the whip. So I'm all over Tim Burton on this one. Plus, Danny DeVito. Come on. Instant win. 😀
