I can say without hesitation, that 1989's Batman is one of my favorite flicks. I don't know if I first saw it on the big screen at the Idle Hour Theater, or if it was at home on a VHS, but I loved it. up to that point, my only exposure to the Dark Knight was Super Friends, and Batman '66 reruns on weekday afternoons. This new, darker version blew all previous iterations out of the water. I mean, if I'm given the choice between sweating through grey and blue spandex, or an all black suit of rubber and leather and body armor, it's a pretty easy decision.
Not surprisingly, there was Batman branded just about everything. You could fill your bowl with Batman cereal, wear your Batman ballcap to the mall, and of course, play with Batman action figures in the privacy of your own room.

I have all kinds of holiday traditions. During Thanksgiving, I try to make it a point to watch the entire Star Wars OG Trilogy while I'm drunk on turkey and wine. On Christmas, the wife and make it a point to fit in as many holiday movies as we can in a 31 day period. Walk into our house at any point during the month of December, and you'll likely hear the dulcet tones of Bing Crosby dreaming of a white Christmas, or the sounds of machine gun fire from Nakatomi Plaza. Peek in our windows on Easter Sunday, and you'll find us searching the nooks and crannies for our Easter baskets. And if you looked in our windows the 40 days and nights of Lent, you'd find me curled up in the corner, rocking back and forth, and sucking my thumb.
