I agree. I think Keaton was ahead of the curve in movies that were, IMO, transitioning from the total camp of the tv series to the dark versions we have today. I always liked the screen presence of Keaton in a lot of movies, but apparently Hollywood moved past him.

He should have done the decent thing and milked the franchise, and done other smaller movies on the side.

It always a risk leaving the thing that made you a blockbuster star to begin with. But I guess Batman forever wouldnt have done wonders to his career either.
