Favorite Michael Keaton Film
When you associate the name Keaton with the movies, the name 'Buster' might be the first to spring to mind, maybe followed by a certain 'Diane', but let's not underestimate the strange but fascinating appeal of Michael Keaton. With a face that always seems ready for a quip and eyes that could do the smiling even in serious moments, Michael Keaton played many various roles that made him a very hard-to-define actor. He could play eccentric and slightly disturbed characters, cool and workaholic blue-collar types of guys, leaders as well as loners -he could even be Batman!- so there might be one word that can describe him perfectly: he was unpredictable. This poll is a tribute to his unpredictability and naturally, his talent. It features his highest-rated live-action movies (no voice roles) all rated higher than 5.9 as of July 2019. Which of these Michael Keaton films is your personal favorite? After voting, you might discuss the list here
