It's been a long, long time since I've last watched this one. I believe I was in grade school. I definitely remember more about Batman Returns, for various reasons.
Batman is excellent, this might be one of Tim Burton's best-directed films, everything from the production design, to the performances, and the plot, it feels ripped straight out of a comic book. Michael Keaton makes for such a great Batman.

Brigsby Bear 2017
Brigsby Bear is another one of those movies that I'd been wanting to watch for years now, but just never got around to it.

Thor: Love and Thunder 2022

Marlon Wayans and Regina Hall do give it a lot of effort though, so there's that and there's some actual genuinely sweet moments during the film. Better than a lot of the comedies from Netflix.
