  Batman (1989 film) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Batman is a 1989 superhero film based on the Batman character created by Bob Kane and Bill Finger and appearing in DC Comics.
When the film was approved for production, there was considerable fan concern that it would emulate the farcical parodying tone of the 1960s Batman television series starring Adam West, concerns that seemed even more worrying after the casting of Michael Keaton (who was, at that time, known for his comedic acting) in the title role.
The film was first released to DVD in 1997, shortly after the format debuted; it was a single disc release featuring the ability to watch the film either in widescreen or in fullscreen but not featuring any bonus materials.

 1989 in film - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The James Bond film Licence to Kill is released.
Unknown to anyone at the time, its release would be followed by years of legal wrangling over the future of the popular film series.
While still considered parts of the same series, Licence to Kill is considered the last of the "old-style" Bond films as produced since 1962.

 Stray Dog Films - East Europe's Film Industry 1989-2000   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-20)
Films such as Jan Sverak's "The Ride" (1994) and "Kolya" (1996) in the Czech Republic, of Martin Sulik's "The Garden in Slovakia" (1994) climbed to the top of the charts.
As a result of the changing structure of film financing, the demand for competent producers far outweighs the supply, and there is growing recognition of the fact that the producer is at least as important as the director.
Krátky Film was partially privatized in 1990 and for a while the Czech Ministry of Culture retained a large percentage of its stock, which allowed the company to retain some of the professionals laid off by Barrandov.

Tim Drake, the third Robin, first appears in 1989 and aspires to be as good a detective as Batman.
Coincidentally, ranked at no. 45 is Zorro from the film The Mark of Zorro; in most versions of Batman's origin story, this is the film young Bruce Wayne saw with his parents right before they were shot.

 Walken Works | Communion (1989) | Film Review
This is one of those numerous films that claims to be 'based on a true story', an invitation of course, to sink comfortably into one's couch ready to enjoy a complete work of fiction.
The opening shots of the film are very effective with an aerial view coming in fast to the night lights of New York and then suddenly slowing down and becoming darker as it reaches the twin towers (a premonition of what was to come in future years perhaps?).
The film seems to suggest that he was having some kind of psychic experience - with, for example, Strieber's sudden awakenings and awareness of someone else in the room.

 Beckett - Film: 1989 "Peephole Art"
Although Beckett declined to be filmed as part of the project, Reilly met with him in Paris five times from 1987 to 1989, where the two collaborated on the productions before the author's death.
Filmed in fl and white, her mouth fills the entire television screen, its position fixed throughout the entire monologue.
Although the reflections of light on the greasepaint distract from the illusion of isolation, seeing the larger-than-life mouth is still a powerful dramatic image, and Sherman plays on this skillfully, exaggerating her movements just enough for visceral effect.

 Woody Lot - Film Review, 1989
Film Review turns left at ' schizophrenia' and carries on past 'serial killer' in a bid to explore the psyche of top screen 'sleazebag' James Woods, whose new movie, The Boost, is out his month
It is a film essentially about adoption, and it is interesting to see Woods' new clean screen look after 20 years of playing psychos, scumbags, villains and cranks.
Generally dubbed as the most unsung actor in films today, he's actually had an Oscar nomination (Best Actor for Salvador), and loads of awards, including an Emmy for the TV film My Name is Bill W., about the Alcoholics Anonymous movement.

 Jan Svankmajer: Alice [Neco z Alenky] (1987)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-20)
In a room cluttered with domestic objects, her attention is drawn to the glass cabinet containing a stuffed white rabbit, who comes to life, smashes his way out, and runs off across an adjoining field.
For his first feature-length film, Svankmajer's humour has been interestingly tested: at times it goes freewheeling off, one bizarre joke after another (although often cued by Carroll), like the wild inventiveness of the Hatter's tea party, in which an endless series of watches is swathed in butter.
But the ending, with Alice waiting to snip off the head of her treacherous 'teacher', is also balefully personal: she is now free from the tyranny of her elders, but the only power this realisation has given her is the power of destruction.

 Arthurian Film
Donner's film, which was shelved by the studio for several years before being dumped for television release, is one of the silliest films ever made about the Arthurian legend.
The charges leveled against the film are generally that the lead roles were miscast, that the direction was ponderous, and that, at nearly three hours, the film was too long.
Clearly, Zucker intends his film to be an Arthuriad for the 1990s, but the film fails to capture the spirit of the original legend or to make a case for its contemporary translation of the oft-told story of the Arthur-Lancelot-Guinevere love triangle.

Disappointing John Belushi biography, especially marred by a framing device in which a journalist tries to piece his life together while Belushi's ghost gets to reflect on the proceedings.

Their film, based on Bob Woodward's biography, was apparently beleaguered by legal problems, but as it stands it neither works as a tribute to the great man, nor as an exposé of his outrageous life.

This is one of my all-time favorite soundtracks (as well as one of my "desert island pick" movies), for its music perfectly evokes the film's spirit and themes by combining historically pertinant pieces by Bach, Gluck, and Handel with original compositions by George Fenton.
The haunting music of this movie paints an emotional as well as intellectual vision that creates the subtle nuances that contribute so much to the essence of this film.
This soundtrack is worth having in that its not distinct from the story line, but like every soundtrack worth its salt it contributes to and adds a vibrant depth to what is on the screen.

 Kenneth Branagh's 1989 Henry V
I had the privilege of seeing Kenneth Branagh’s Henry V, when it was first released in 1989, at the gorgeous old Oriental Cinema film palace in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
For me personally, the essence of the mental revolution kindled by Branagh’s Henry V was the realization that Shakespeare was, after all, a modern playwright.
One of my favorite moments in the film comes early, when the Archbishop of Canterbury (Charles Kay) attempts to persuade the king and his court that Henry should "unwind his bloody flag" and make a claim on the French crown.
