Batman

When I decided to kick off my 1989 movie marathon, this was the movie that I started it with. I still remember seeing this at the theater — we were about to go on a family trip, but I insisted on seeing it opening night before we left. As with a lot of movies that I ended up watching countless times, re-watching it felt so familiar: the scenes, the lines, etc. Apologies to Superman, but this is the movie that really kicked off the idea that “super-hero movies can be good,” even though its sequels turned the series into a big fat joke.
