one of the worst movies ever made

people go on and on about the abysmal 'cape shit' movies they are putting out now, but there was an interesting rash of shitty comic book movies that came out in 1989/1990, in the wake of the success of the first Batman movie.

Dick Tracy

the 'Rocketeer'

The Punisher

Darkman

The Flash

Captain America

I can appreciate set design just fine. Look at The Goonies. Much of that was soundstage but it felt completely real and immersive. Same with many Indiana Jones scenes. But the first Batman and Dick Tracy (and other movies like Hook) all had a soundstage feel to them. Terrible lighting, bland sets, etc.

Here is a positive review from IMDB

7/10

Beautiful

utgard1411 November 2013

Labor of love for star and director Warren Beatty, Dick Tracy was a film I hated when it first came out. I was a kid and stupid, only caring about what's cool. What was cool then (and sadly still is) was "dark and gritty" heroes like Batman. Dick Tracy was considered corny and lame. When I first watched it I thought it was a kids' movie and I was at that age where anything like that I hated. Happily, I feel much differently about the film now that I'm older.

Dick Tracy is a live-action cartoon, with eye-popping visuals decked out in bright primary colors. It's a beautiful film to behold. Everyone involved in the stylized look of this movie should be proud. The sets, the lighting, the matte paintings, the makeup and effects are all superior to any CGI crap we get today. Real work and passion went into this and it shows.

The cast is great. Beatty is criticized by many for not being the right fit for Tracy or for being too old. While he's not a perfect representation of the character, I feel he does quite well and his age never occurred to me while watching it. Madonna gives easily her best performance in this movie. That's meant slightly as a slam I guess, as most of her other work is very weak. But it's also meant as a compliment. Here she plays to her strengths: sex appeal and "oomph." Her double entendres and skin-tight dresses make Breathless Mahoney a very memorable character. There's also some fine support from Glenne Headley and Charlie Korsmo. And who can forget the villains! Chester Gould's distinctive-looking villains come to life thanks to superb makeup, played in many cases by uncredited stars. The leader of the bunch is Big Boy Caprice, played by the wonderfully over-the-top Al Pacino. Pacino was having a lot of fun with the role and it shows.

My only real complaint lies in the music. Not the Stephen Sondheim songs -- they're great. But the Danny Elfman musical score is way too similar to the one he did for Batman the year before. It's very lazy and doesn't seem to fit the action of the film. Forget what you've read from naysayers about this movie and judge it for yourself. It's a fun movie with exceptional visuals and colorful ambiance.

I also haven't seen the movie since I was a kid (I saw it in the theater even), but I remember the plot and performances being very dull and art design wasn't enough to save it. And if you couldn't impress me as a kid it must have been pretty bad.

Batman (1990) wasn't a great movie either but at least it had Jack Nicholson as the Joker and some good action scenes and I enjoyed it.

that's the precise recollection of anyone who was alive at the time.

it was really one of the first times in their young lives that they felt the ugliness, the hollowness of a pure "GC" swindle.

they hyped this movie non-stop for 6 months, they had the merchandising, the promotional campaigns, the music videos, the toys, the badges, the buttons, the billboards, and then it was just an awful unwatchable movie.

a whole generation of American children lost their innocence the day this shitty, ridiculous movie came to town.

The only prior movie I can think of with a similar impact was the first Star Trek movie. The hype and anticipation were pretty huge for the time, and nearly everyone came out of it asking "wtf?"

I actually like the movie now, but hyping it up as a kid-friendly blockbuster was absurd

OTOH, it wasn't cynical movie star porn
