Today marks the 25th Anniversary of the release of Director Tim Burton's "Batman".  A film that set the tone for not only summer blockbuster's to come but also set the standard for Comic Book movies that we see being released to this date. I don't think you could of went anywhere in 1989 and not see or hear anything about this film it was that hyped.   It had controversy with Michael Keaton being cast as Bruce Wayne/Batman.  An interesting soundtrack with music by Prince and the score by Danny Elfman.  The film has aged in its 25 years but I still enjoy it mostly for the performance of Jack Nicholson as the Joker.   Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight films obviously built upon this film  and it's sequels but on occasion it's cool to watch this movie and think where we would be with today's comic films if it wasn't for this one.
