It's been 30 years since the release of "Beetlejuice," and fans regard the Tim Burton classic as one of Michael Keaton's best films. Keaton first brought the comedic role of Beetlejuice to life, playing the sleazy ghost to perfection in the blockbuster of the same name. But he then successfully took on an iconic role in yet another classic Tim Burton film—"Batman," starring as the Caped Crusader in one of the most commercially successful blockbusters of all time. Which film is better? 🎥

"I'm not going to kill you. I want you to do me a favor. I want you to tell all your friends about me."

Below is the synopsis of the 1989 "Batman" movie, per IMDB.

The Dark Knight of Gotham City begins his war on crime with his first major enemy being the clownishly homicidal Joker.

Prior to 1989, besides "Superman," superhero movies had not fared well at the box office or with critics. But that all changed with Keaton's portrayal of Batman in both "Batman" and "Batman Returns." Keaton transformed Batman from a campy hero stuck in the '60s into a serious, badass crime fighter. The first reboot of the Caped Crusader made more than $411 million at the global box office and launched Batman's live-action film career (for better and worse).

Check out a clip of Michael in his highly-praised role as Batsy below.

"I'm feeling a little, ooh, anxious if you know what I mean. It's been about six hundred years after all. I wonder where a guy, an everyday Joe like myself, can find a little action..."

Below is the synopsis of "Beetlejuice," per IMDB.

When a recently-deceased ghost couple find their now-vacant home invaded by an obnoxious family, they hire a sleazy ghost who gets rid of humans to help them.

Michael played the sleazy, grotesque, but laugh-out-loud funny ghost Beetlejuice in Tim Burton's dark comedy classic. You definitely don't wanna call his name three times or else he'll appear in the outer-world and wreak havoc; although that's what made the character fun. The cult classic made $73 million at the domestic box office and was a massive hit for both Burton and Keaton.

Watch a clip from the hilarious dark comedy below.
