Batman Returns

Director: Tim Burton
Year: 1992
Tim Burton's return to Gotham City in 1992 saw him even less interested in Batman than he was in 1989, and he created something totally bizarre. It's a creepy, cold, dark movie, set at Christmas and populated with filthy circus clowns, giant penguins, and Christopher Walken. Danny DeVito's deformed Penguin is so disgusting that he's almost hard to watch, while Michelle Pfieffer's latex-clad Catwoman is hard to watch in an entirely different way.
