We may be a long way from remastering old TV shows on Blu Ray. Good thing they made a Batman movie in the '60s, and there's a new theatrical movie coming out, so they're cashing in on the tie-in.

On Blu-Ray: Batman: The Movie

Batman: The Movie looks really good on Blu Ray. It's on the high end of old movie transfers. There is some grain, but it's film, so there should be. It's better than a lot of merely 10-year-old films.

In the true Batman campy tone, there are plenty of bright, primary colors. With all the villains together in their hideout, there are even more. I never noticed Cesar Romero's Joker had a moustache on TV.

All of Batman's vehicles (and they use the Batmobile, the boat and the copter in this) are shiny. Closeups show detail in the fabric of costumes, seams and layers. You can even see the wrinkles in the sky backdrop! That's awesome.

For a film this old, just holding up on Blu Ray is a big deal. Batman: The Movie looks great. Even the skin tones are consistent, adding a hint of realism in an otherwise Technicolor film.
