 Batman Begins
After director Joel Schumacher practically destroyed the franchise with the day-glo camp of Batman Forever (in 1995) and Batman and Robin (1997), Batman is finally back on course thanks to director Christopher Nolan (of Memento fame) and writer David S. Goyer (the Blade trilogy) with Batman Begins.
