Reel Features Season 11 Ticket 10 - December to Remember Remastered
Continuing with a recent trend of dusting-off past reviews under the Special Features and improving the quality by enhancing the imagery, video clips and with new voice over recordings - I felt it was time for my very first December to Remember Entry to be given the same treatment with Batman Returns.
I'm not one for doing repeat reviews, ie, review the same movie, game, WWE PPVs or TV shows multiple times with the same script and mentality. Because if that were the case then what is the point if you've already done so with previous reviews of said respective products?
If you're coming into it from a fresh perspective where you haven't watched nor played it for years and you're merely looking to see how it's held up over time for Anniversary reviews and or Retrospectives, then that's a different context. Because our points of view change over time from 5-15 or even 20 years.
But then comes the other type where you have access to equipment, software, skills/techniques that you didn't have prior to making the original versions and you know that you can do a superior review - then I think that's acceptable. If you don't agree, that's ok. It's all good.
I'd like to think in the 5 years since I originally reviewed Batman Returns for December to Remember from Special Features, that I have gotten better and savvier as a reviewer and voice over artist. And since my 25th Anniversary review for Jurassic Park was a launching pad for improving the quality of my movie reviews, I felt Batman Returns more than qualified and looking at the finished version of the improved article - I'm quite content with it. From the visuals to the voice over delivery because I don't sound so muffled and because I know how to do audio levels more competently compared to my earlier days as a reviewer and try to put more pzazz in my recordings.
Other than changing from Reel Features, to enhancing the visuals, improving the voice overs, adding in previously unrecorded lines, everything else has been kept the same.
So, I hope you enjoy this improved review just as much as I enjoyed making it.
