I’ve made a lot of disparaging remarks about 538.com lately, but ““Batman Forever” (1995), which I consider the best of Joel Schumacher’s Batmans by a mile” really is surprising awful even by 538.com standards. All this says is that Batman Forever, which was ridiculously bad, was less bad than Batman and Robin, which was ridonculously bad. Those were the only two Batman movies directed by Joel Schumacher.
Maybe this was meant to be a cutesy throw-away comment, but their frequent occurrence in every 538.com article results in the fact that I don’t recognize 538.com analyses as having any merit whatsoever.
