Batman movies keep getting darker and grittier and edgier and I wish they'd take a step back in the opposite direction, because it's becoming increasingly impossible for me take them at face value. Imagine if Seven had Brad Pitt walking around in a rubber animal suit. That's basically what this movie is.

The other day I watched Spider-Man 2. There's a scene where Doc Ock is robbing a bank. The money is stored as gold coins inside burlap sacks with dollar signs on them. He fight Spidey by throwing money sacks at him. That's the kind of stuff I have a much easier time accepting in a comic book film. I wonder if there's ever going to be a cartoony live action Batman film again.
