A big Batman fan? Buy this!
Yes, I'm a Batman fanatic for the comics and films. When I first saw this anthology, I knew I had to get it. It was well worth my money for you get just more than the film discs: A second disc for each of the four movies is included with Special features! That I love, and that you will love too. The beautiful and modern look of the antholoy box is just an added bonus; you can show it off as a kick-ass adornment in your entertainment room or office. :D

Batman: The Movies....All over the map!
The first two Tim Burton-helmed movies are truly my favorites. He reinvented the dark, brooding, revenge-driven Batman that I remember from the early comics (I read reprints, by the way) and the return to this format in the seventies. The production design of Batman(1989) and Batman Returns(1992) as well as the casting were truly key. That being said, I move on to Batman Forever(1995). Recasting the caped crusader should have been given more thought. I have never been a huge fan of Val Kilmer; his take was more brooding but we then add Chris O'Donnell as a frat boy Robin who seemed like he'd be more at home chugging beer in his dorm room. Also the production values didn't slip, they took a sharp left turn. We have sets that reminded me of old carnival fun houses, loaded with black lights and colorful paint, spotlights and rock concert lighting. What a mess. Jim Carrey? Annoying! Tommy Lee Jones? Waste of exceptional talent. Ok, so the special features clue us into what Warner wanted: Lighten up the franchise. Joel Schumacher does this by giving us TOO much to see and hear; two villains again and new characters that we don't really care about. Not missing a beat after the third film made money, the producers launched into Batman and Robin(1997). Well? It looked and felt like a "toy commercial" (to quote O'Donnell himself) and esentially, it was. Warner wanted to tie in all the merchandise as they had with the previous film for major profits. All they accomplised was to kill the franchise, that is, until Christopher Nolan brought us into the 21st century. The special features are plenty in this set; each DVD has two discs, and loads of extras. Even if you are a fan of the first two movies only, this set is well worth the price.Read full review

Batman: the Motion Picture Anthology
I bought this for my son as a graduation present. He has been trying to find his favorite movie sets on DVD to replace his VHS sets that have been used to death.This is just one of the sets I found for him. He is very inerested in the extra features that this set offers. If you can find a reasonably priced used set like this one, you will save a lot of money. When the new Batman Movie hits the market there will be a surge to purchase the entire set. Get yours now will the price is still affordable. If you can get any movie set in decent shape in 2-disc Special Editions at around $5 per Disc, including shipping, you've done well!
