Batman Returns

*takes a sip, computer is open and ready to go. time for some cards over coffee*

Yes, the "behind the screen" of your favorite coffee card blogger has returned. 

*takes a sip*

I was experimenting with this blog in the last few posts and seeing if I can move away from the "behind the screen" part, but I came to realize that adding those in is what make this blog unique and sets it apart from all other blogs

So they have returned....just like Batman cards in today's post.

*takes a sip, tries out Batman voice and continues on with today's post*

What I really need to do to this blog is not make changes, but to update some lists on here. That is where my time should be spent.

I don't think anywhere on here it says that I collect Batman cards. That is really only known to a few who have done some trading with me.

Such as blog reader Oren who is always on the hunt to help me add to my Batman collection.

Which in our latest trade, he did.

I have seen most of the Batman movies, recently I finally watched Batman vs Superman and Justice League, both were okay movies with Ben Affleck as Batman, but neither to me were as good as the 1992 hit Batman Returns.

In Batman Returns, Michael Keaton returns as Batman facing off against two villains this time in, Catwoman (played by Michelle Pfeiffer) and Penguin (played by Danny Devito). All three actors nailed their parts and I can argue they were the best to ever play those parts.

*takes a sip before showing off today's cards*

Pfeiffer's Catwoman was both seductive and crazy. Exactly who the character is.


And Devito's look and approach to the role of Penguin to me was spot on. It was the vision of him I would picture.

We already know how well Keaton played as Batman in the 1989 movie and it only continued on in this sequel. Also, how cool also is this Batmissle??

Oh, and did I fail to mention another big celebrity played in this movie as well....yup...that's Christopher Walken who played Max Shreck a corrupt tycoon who aides the Penguin.

There was plenty of action as well. Either someone ate at Taco Bell in this scene or the Penguin made an appearance. Either way, it was explosive and a little disappointing not to see a coffee mug in sight.

Thanks again to Oren for the trade!

*takes a sip before finishing up today's post*

I think the only Batman movie I have left I haven't seen is The Batman which I just picked up on DVD to watch. However, I still have plenty of Batman cards I need to chase as my collection is very small right now.

Here is my Top 5 Batman movies I have seen,
  1. The Dark Knight
  2. Batman 1989
  3. Batman Returns
  4. Batman Begins
  5. The Dark Knight Rises
Post yours in comments or thoughts on Batman Returns or the cards from today's post.

Hope everyone has a terrific Tuesday.

*Coffee Card Blogger Out*


  1. I agree with your top 4, although I would put Batman 89 over TDK. For #5, I think I would go with Batman Forever. It wasn't a great cinematic classic or anything, but I did NOT like Dark Knight Rises at all. The voice used for Bane ruined it completely.

    1. Yes, Bane is why I put that one down on my list

  2. My friends were so stoked for Batman 1989... and at the time it was one of my favorite movies. These days I'd rank the three Christian Bale movies ahead of it. I started the new Batman movie, but haven't finished it. As for Batman Returns, it's a good movie too. But it doesn't crack the Top 4.

    1. Wonder if Batman Returns qualifies as a Christmas movie...

  3. I also enjoy Batman Forever. Jim Carrey at his zany best. How about the OG Batman movie with Adam West?

    1. Love me some Adam West! I watched the series but haven't had the chance to sit down and watch that movie yet. Finally got that one on DVD as well


Cards and coffee go together like PB&J, so don't you and leaving a comment below. Take a sip and let me know your thoughts!
