    With Hollywood's newest incarnation of Batman imminent, we decided to go back to one of the most definitive Batman takes in cinema history: Michael Keaton & Tim Burton's Batman. Sins definitely exist.

    Thursday: Hmmm... I wonder... what could it be?

    Remember, no movie is without sin! Which movie's sins should we expose next?!

    Batman is not the star of his own film. The Joker is.

      I agree with several of these "sins". Its a Great movie and 1 of my favorites, but there are some things, here.
      A vat of toxic chemicals isn't enough to kill Napier? ..no drowning? Why are they playing "cops and robbers" in a chemical plant?
      Vale wasn't seriously injured from those falls or from being shot up about 25 feet in the air?
      How is it that Joker could bring down the Batwing with only a revolver?
      Why wasnt Batman killed or seriously injured when it crashed into the cathedral?
      Once the story is exposed and printed Why would Vale stick around..after all that took place? I would've left the country or at least Gotham..
      Here's Another 1...
      Why does Bruce Wayne get involved with these women when doing so will put them in danger?? ( his "career" as a crimefighting vigilante detective)
      How does Wayne know So Much about chemistry? ...did he merit a degree in university?
      A Great Big manor...for 1 man?
      Why didn't he just Sell It?
      Bale and Affleck were better at the "billionaire playboy" angle.
      Keaton was a Great Batman, but a mediocre Bruce Wayne.
      He played him more like a bored corporate executive..
      Why would Alfred let Vale into the Batcave??
      So she could inform the police? Joker?

          Batman could have apprehended Napier and much of his gang and handed them to the Police...Of course he didn't do that! ...he had to "create" the Joker, for dramatic effect.

            Wouldn’t the bullet, driven into a metal plate, cause a really loud noise?

                  "How does Joker override the broadcast at a news station? What equipment have we seen that allows him to do this?"

                  Are you at all familiar with the max headroom incident? Guy hijacked WGN Channel 9 The Nine O'Clock News

                  This actually happened, and it took place 2 years before this movie, yet you're saying it's unlikely for a villain to do the same thing in a movie?

                              Comparing Prince to Kanye West is like comparing David Bowie to Kid Rock. You just don't do that. A better comparison would have been Lady Gaga doing Batman's music today.

                                    the sin count could be a good way of ranking movies the ones with lower sin counts are probably good movies while the ones with high sin counts are probably bad movies

                                      @Cole Frankenhoff was just saying that in a limited degree it could be a good ranking system for movies also I bet CinemaSin would have a lot to say about Indiana Jones Raiders of the lost Arc

                                                            James Bond does not exist in the Batman or DC universe. Unlike the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle. Also, Batman was introduced in 1940 in Batman #1. And it assumes that you have some idea about the Batman story... the comics, former films, and TV show, at this point I can only guess that they would only know that Batman is “The World’s greatest Detective”.

                                                                  P.S.: Batman seems to be the only hero here yet prominently only shows up at night. So, someone could just commit a crime in the day, right? Oh and give one like for the Dark Wing Duck reference.
