Batman Forever (4K) (Blu-ray)
by Ian Jane

The Movie:

By the time 1995 rolled around, Michael Keaton was out of the Bat-suit replaced by Val Kilmer. Tim Burton was no longer directing (though he was one of the producers on this film) and Joel Schumacher was behind the camera and calling the shots.

The effectiveness of The Innocents is rooted mainly in its tasteful but striking cinematography (by Freddie Francis) and the implicitness in its adaptation. In The Nightcomers everything is explicit, even exploitive, while the production is shoddy and uncaring. Director Michael Winner apparently famously got along well with star Marlon B...Read the entire review »
