Episode 59: Batman (1989)
“You are my number one guy – tickle me!”
Removing a grappling gun from their utility belt(s) before aiming and shooting it skyward, the panel of peril zip up to an overhead gantry to watch this week’s film Batman (Tim Burton, 1989).
Batman (Billy Crystal/Michael Keaton) is emerging from the shadows of Gotham City as conspiracy theories about him find their way into the news. Gotham’s police force is riddled with corruption. And local, mid-level gangster Jack Napier (Jack Nicholson) has just taken a tumble into a vat of chemicals, courtesy of Bats. The collision course is set; who shall prevail?

********PLOT SPOILER ALERT********
Love that Joker! He’s only throwing a big parade, with entertainment, and $20m in cash being redistributed amongst Gotham’s working class! Whadda guy! Or is he? What about that Smylex chemical he’s put in cleaning products that causes people to die laughing? Batman doesn’t think it’s a very nice thing to do, and neither do we! Can the Caped Crusader stop the Clown Prince of Crime becoming the city’s newest top dog, mob boss?
What did the panel think of this week’s movie? How can they improve upon the villain’s masterplan? And who will be anointed this week’s most diabolical?
