What do you get when Joel Schumacher takes on one of the most iconic superheroes of all time? Ice puns and bat nipples, of course!

In this double feature episode, we dive into the music of the Batman films, Tommy Lee Jones' feud with Jim Carrey, and the sheer ridiculousness of Gotham City's architecture. Yes, these movies are campy, but do Batman Forever and Batman & Robin stand the Test of Time?

The Bat is back as Michael Keaton and director Tim Burton reunite for another round of Gotham City crime-fighting in 1992's Batman Returns.

This movie had a meta moment before meta moments were a thing, it features a love quadrangle that's really just a line, and it introduced the whole "one hero vs. two villains" concept, as Batman faces off against the epitome of a crazy cat lady and a dude who lives in the sewers under the zoo's penguin exhibit... but still has an army of henchmen.

Does the Bat stand up to the Cat and the Penguin? And does Batman Returns stand the Test of Time?

Before Batfleck and before Bale, there was Burton's Batman: the Michael Keaton movie that made the Dark Knight cool.

In this Bat-tastic episode, we discuss Jack Nicholson's epic payday, the amount of alleys in New York versus Gotham, and the absurd weight limit of Batman's grappling hook. We don't ask if you've ever danced with the devil in the pale moonlight, but we do ask if Batman stands the Test of Time.

Weatherman Phil Connors has to relive a single day over and over again in the movie that redefined déjà vu.
 
This week, we discuss aging superheroes, why you should never set your alarm to your favorite song, and the concept of Daddy-jacking. Plus we debate just how many times Phil actually repeated the same day... and whether Groundhog Day stands the Test of Time.
