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 seem ready for a quip and eyes that could do the smiling even in serious moments, Michael Keaton played many various roles that made me 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?

Batman and Beetlejuice, but if it came down to the two I'd have to say Beetlejuice!

I love Michael Keaton and he grew up not far from where I did and, as a young adult, he lived and worked on TV even closer to where I grew up and in the same neighborhood where I went to college and spent a good bit of time as an adult. My vote: The Paper. Great poll.

It says "me", but it should say "him", right?

Also: a face that always seems ready

ElMo, I am posting here about one of your older polls, I recently ran across with a dead discussion link. Poll: "Woof Woof! ... Boohoo ..." Most moving dog story and List: "Woof Woof! ... Boohoo ..." Most moving dog story

Oddly, I think this poll was ahead of its time, as there have been a run of moving dog-centric movies over the past few years. I think it would benefit from an update or if you prefer a version focused on  the 2010s decade:  A Dog's Journey (2019), A Dog's Way Home (2019), Isle of Dogs (2018), A-X-L (2018), A Dog's Purpose (2017), Megan Leavey (2017), Max (I) (2015), Oddball and the Penguins (I) (2015), Belle & Sebastian (2013)
