Movies Batman Forever (1995, Val Kilmer, Nicole Kidman) Published 7 months ago on October 24, 2018 Some unfairly blame director Joel Schumacher for the demise of the Batman franchise (he went on to direct Batman and Robin two years later and the Caped Crusader remained buried until last year’s Batman Returns ) but this is a worthy successor to Tim Burton’s two films (who acted as producer on this one). Val Kilmer plays the super hero, less troubled than in Burton’s films and more comfortable with his crime-fighting role. This time, he faces two villains, a sidekick and yet another woman who’s in love with Batman but not with his alter-ego, Bruce Wayne. The villains are Two-Face (Tommy Lee Jones), a former district attorney whose acid scarred face has sent him mad and The Riddler (played by Jim Carrey, who brings his range of manic facial tics to the role) who blames Wayne for his plight. The sidekick is Robin (Chris O’Donnell), a young circus acrobat whose parents are killed by Two-Face. Bought under Wayne’s wing, he rebels until he learns of his guradian’s crime-busting identity. And psychiatrist Dr Chase Meridian (Nicole Kidman) is the woman intrigued by Batman’s persona and physique. The film flows along with a pace that never loses the viewer, alternating all-action set pieces with scenes between Batman/Wayne/Meridian that ooze repressed passion. O’Donnell is chirpy as Robin, who soon learns to handle the various Bat vehicles but Jones and Carrey come close to stealing the film, as villains often do, with their dastardly plan to use TV waves to subjugate the citizens of Gotham City and plunder the city’s fortunes for themselves. production details USA | 121 minutes | 1995 Director: Joel Schumacher Writers: Lee Batchler, Janet Scott Batchier, and Akiva Goldsman cast Val Kilmer as Bruce Wayne / Batman Nicole Kidman as Dr. Chase Meridian Ed Begley Jr. as Fred Stickley (uncredited) Jim Carrey as Edward Nygma / The Riddler Rene Auberjonois as Dr. Burton Drew Barrymore as Sugar Tommy Lee Jones as Harvey Dent / Two-Face Debi Mazar as Spice Pat Hingle as Commissioner Gordon Chris O’Donnell as Dick Grayson / Robin Michael Gough as Alfred Pennyworth Elizabeth Sanders as Gossip Gerty Joe Grifasi as Bank Guard Philip Moon as Male Newscaster Jessica Tuck as Female Newscaster Dennis Paladino as Crime Boss Moroni Don Wilson as Gang Leader Kimberly Scott as Margaret Eileen Seeley as Martha Wayne Michael Paul Chan as Executive Jon Favreau as Assistant Bob Zmuda as Electronic Store Owner Rebecca Budig as Teenage Girl Ria Coyne as Socialite Ramsey Ellis as Young Bruce Wayne ActionAkiva GoldsmanBob KaneChris BuchinskyChris O'DonnellCrimeDebi MazarDrew BarrymoreEd Begley JrElizabeth SandersFantasyJim CarreyJoel SchumacherMichael GoughNicole KidmanPat HingleRene AuberjonoisTommy Lee JonesVal Kilmer Advertisement advertisement and this just in Episodes5 hours ago Portals to Hell: Emerald Hill Hell House (S1EP5 Travel Fri 24 May 2019) Emerald Hill Hell House: Jack Osbourne and Katrina Weidman investigate a 19th-century estate in Monongahela, Pa., which is bursting with...
