“Tell me something, my friend. You ever dance with the devil in the pale moonlight?” The Joker said.
Batman has been a part of my childhood for a long time, its one of the best superhero movies that started the ball rolling with franchises filled with heroes and villians.
You may think you know the plot for Batman, but here it is…Having witnessed his parents’ brutal murder as a child, millionaire philanthropist Bruce Wayne (Michael Keaton) fights crime in Gotham City disguised as Batman, a costumed hero who strikes fear into the hearts of villains. But when a deformed madman who calls himself “The Joker” (Jack Nicholson) seizes control of Gotham’s criminal underworld, Batman must face his most ruthless nemesis ever while protecting both his identity and his love interest, reporter Vicki Vale (Kim Basinger).
The movie was of course directed by Tim Burton and the score was done by Danny Elfman. Its a score that set the basis for Batman: The Animated Series. I love this score, its a feeling embedded in the moving rhythm. Ups and downs in the music helps us to see how fantastic this score is.
You can find the score on Amazon.
You can also find the score on ITunes.
