4. 'Batman and Robin'

"This was super camp ­– Batman collides with Studio 54. Aesthetically, it's kind of mad, and not good for Batman's health. George Clooney is a patrician version of Batman, and Chris O'Donnell is a weird kind of Robin. He plays it just slightly too old for it, and you can't imagine how he could get caught up in this at all. I think the Schumacher films almost fill that space. The next generation of Batman filmmakers after Chris Nolan, I think, will find inspiration in these movies, although not necessarily the general tone of them."
