There is nothing like a good Batman film in which to soak up a few hours, Bob Kane’s gift to comic book fandom has had its ups and down, whilst enjoyable in a kitsch, clique ridden way, the 60s television and subsequent film didn’t add much to the mystique of the Dark Knight, whereas Michael Keaton’s and Christian Bale’s interpretation of the man and the myth was completely and beautifully captured by their respective directors.

Some films are just so perfect that the ideology behind them, the message they are meant to represent, doesn’t matter. What matters is the substance, the overall feel in which they leave the audience fulfilled and more content than being told they could eat whatever they wanted over the festive period, it wouldn’t show up as weight gained on the scales at home.
