Batman (1989)

Bruce Wayne (Michael Keaton) is a billionaire who secretly dresses up as a bat to become a feared vigilante of Gotham City. After being dropped in a pool of acid by the hands of Batman, criminal Jack Napier (Jack Nicholson) becomes the Joker and tries to capture Batman, spread chaos through Gotham, and even steal Batman love interest Vicky Vale (Kate Basinger).

I'm not really sure what to say about this one. A lot of people like it enough to call it Tim Burton's masterpiece, but I just don't know. Yes, Michael Keaton and Jack Nicholson are really good in their roles, and the movie IS good, but I just don't think it's THAT good. Maybe it'll grow on me.
