Review – Batman (1966)

This brought back some pleasant childhood memories of the kids in the neighborhood gathering around a TV set and watching the old Adam West / Burt Ward Batman series. Nostalgia aside, however, this is almost pure camp. If you’ve seen some of the recent Batman movies but not this outing, imagine the polar opposite of The Dark Knight and you’ve got a clear picture. This is goofy, corny, cute, harmless, completely safe for kids, basically everything 21st century Batman isn’t. I expect any adult who doesn’t remember this stuff fondly will lose patience with it fairly quickly, but I got a kick out of watching it again. Mildly amusing
