the dark knight

I love Chris Nolan’s Batman movie except for one thing: The Batman voice. Well… that’s been fixed now. Batman: The Animated Series is the best on screen representation of Batman as far as I’m concerned. Any time I read a Batman comic now the voice I hear in my head is that of Kevin Conroy.… read more

Promotion for The Dark Knight Rises is already hitting a fever pitch, and it’s not even due out for another seven months. Despite the fact that set videos have leaked all over the place, official promotional materials for the third film in Christopher Nolan‘s Batman film trilogy have been a bit sparse as of late.… read more

Before I say anything about this, please note I have taken a heaping pile of salt with this, and I suggest you also partake of said pile of salt.

Can you imagine another Batman film that doesn’t involve director Christopher Nolan? Well, if Christian Bale is right, you might have to. In a new interview with MTV to promote his new movie, Public Enemies, Christian Bale was asked about the status of a third Batman film with director Christopher Nolan. I truly don’t know… read more

It may be hard to believe, but there was once a time where a movie based on a comic book being released was like some sort of weird dream.  It was rare, and it was even rarer that they were actually good.  Luckily all of that has changed over the years, and the rule of… read more

Oscar Winners 2009

The winners for the 81st annual Academy Awards have been announced, and, not too much to my surprise, I have seen hardly any of these films so far.  I have been dying to see Slumdog Millionaire, and surprisingly, it is actually in my town now!  I’m going to try to sneak out of work and… read more

How did a cartoon nail the real Batman formula better than any of the movies? I recently purchased the complete box set of the 1992 Batman: The Animated Series (B:TAS) cartoon, and I’ve been working my way through the episodes as I exercise. (my workout happens to almost exactly match the length of 2 episodes)… read more

Christian Bale Tirade

I’m not one usually for posting celebrity gossip, but this has to be heard to be believed. Christian Bale, star of The Dark Knight, has long been rumored to have a temper, and on July 17th, 2008, while filming Terminator Salvation, it got caught on audio just how much of a temper he has. As… read more

It’s true folks, Hollywood is in deep crisis… of morals that is. Hollywood had a record year in 2008 financially, but attendance dropped off.  Well, according to Nikki Finke’s Deadline Hollywood, the American movie industry had their best January ever to kick off 2009… stupid pirates killing off all of their business! Hollywood has been… read more

The nominees for the 81st annual Academy Awards have been announced, and, not too much to my surprise, I have seen hardly any of these films so far. Every year I wait for the Oscar nominations, and each year I walk away saying, “Wow, wish I had seen most of these.”  I think it is… read more
