Enjoyed it when I saw it opening weekend. But now I just don't care for it. Still it was a huge blockbuster that started the modern comic movie boom. And thanks to this movie I could get some great Batman shirts in every store. Still got my Bolland Joker that came out around the time of the film. Now just gotta lose enough weight for it to fit me again lol.
It will always hold a place in my heart like it does for a lot of people, but I can take off the rose tinted glasses to see the bad along with the good about it. It's by no means a perfect movie, or even a perfect Batman movie. There's definitely some of Burton's lack of familiarity with the source material that shows through and just some of the generally strange quirks and ticks he has as a director that seep into a lot of his work.
It's like that person that may not be necessarily the best person in the world, but is so darn charming and charismatic that you're able to overlook and forgive a lot of their flaws.
Which is more than I can say for some Batman adaptations.
