Cool Videos: Honest Trailers tackles the comic book classic Batman & Robin!

Jul. 30, 2013by:

I'll never forget seeing BATMAN & ROBIN in the theater. It was truly one of the worst movie-going experiences I've ever had. Like a sick prank, I sat and watched this once dark, cool franchise disintegrate before my eyes and walked out of the theater with a raging headache. It felt like I'd just been detained and tortured for two hours and that's not being dramatic. That's how I honestly felt. Driving home, I immediately thought, "Well, there definitely won't be another one after that." Thank God for Christopher Nolan, eh?

With that, this Honest Trailer from the guys at Screen Junkies is a fitting "tribute" to the abysmal film that has turned into one of the best unintentional comedies ever made. It's great that we can laugh about this now, seeing as THE DARK KNIGHT trilogy has easily made up for the sinful stain that is BATMAN & ROBIN. Imagine the depression you'd feel if this was still the last Batman film made, though. Ouch.

Bat Bewbs!:

Extra Tidbit: Joel Schumacher takes a lot of shit for this, but he's still got a few good films on his resume, including Falling Down, A Time To Kill, and Flatliners.

I think Schumacher also doesn't get enough credit for Tigerland. Possibly one of the best Vietnam War era films of all time.

The sad thing is, there are still many movie critics who think this is what the comics are like.

This trailer for 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' makes it look kick-ass.

Great movie to watch with lots of friends after having a few beers/bowls and just rip it apart. and Schumacher also made The Lost Boys.

Yeah, I think 'classic" might be too strong of a word.

Extra Tidbit

Definitely agree on this point. Plus, he directed Episodes 5 and 6 of House of Cards (the two main teachers' strike eps), which were quite good as was season 1 as a whole, barring an episode or two.
