Today is the 25th anniversary of Tim Burton's Batman (1989). Of all the Batman movies made, my all time favorite Batman movie is without a doubt (drum roll....) the 89' Batman starring Michael Keaton. It had everything (suspense, humor, action) that I wanted to see from the jump from comics to big screen. We will begin by taking a step back in time to Batman the 1960's television series starring Adam West, and then press on forward to Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight triogy. So, sit back and enjoy the ride!
