Versus pits two films of similar genre, story, cast or any other tenious link against each other and decides which is better based not on quality but on different catagories shared between the two films. First up, Burton’s Batman takes on … Continue reading New Features Week: Batman (1989) Versus The Dark Knight
The best games that appeal to movie fans are the ones that tell a great narrative in which the player gets to steer that story and make some impact. Until Dawn was a perfect example of this and although they didn’t … Continue reading Games for Movie Fans… Batman: The Telltale Series
Christopher Nolan not only crafts the perfect superhero film but also one of the best film’s ever. There isn’t a misstep in the two and half hour running time of his Batman movie. It works from the ground-up, from soundtrack to story … Continue reading Review 500!: The Dark Knight (2008)
It was recently revealed that Ben Affleck will not only Batman in the new Superman vs Batman : Dawn of Justice movie but has also been handed the “keys” to the Batman franchise afterwards, both co-writing and directing the new instalment in … Continue reading Why Hush should be the story for Affleck’s Batman movie
What If… is a self-indulgent look at how things could have been. I take an event or a rumour and let my imagination run wild. It’s rarely based on fact and completely based on guess-work and conjecture. So to start… … Continue reading What If… Tim Burton had directed Batman 3?
I review a whole season rather than individual episodes, so there is a chance of spoilers. If you haven’t watched the whole season yet, stop reading now! It’s easy to think back to a show from your childhood with rose-tinted glasses. … Continue reading Batman: The Animated Series (Volume 1) TV Review
There is a strange idea with superhero sequels that bigger and better translates to more villains. Now you’ve used half of the first film to complete the origin of your superhero, you must now give him multiple villains to fight … Continue reading Iron Man 2 (2010) Review
How can a film with all the right ingredients get everything so badly wrong? One of the greatest superheroes (check), two of his greatest villains (check), a decent cast (check), a budget that is more than enough to create a classic (check)! I’ve never written a film or directed a movie but I am a huge Batman fan and believe that if a studio told me to create a Batman film that included The Riddler, Two Face, Robin and Nicole Kidman, I could do a very good job of it. It would feel like half the work is already done for me. … Continue reading Batman Forever (1995) Re-View
I’m going to leave the big decisions to Christopher Nolan. What I mean is that I’m not going to comment on the actual story or what direction the film takes or anything like that. What I want are small things. These are things that appeal to the fan in me! I’ve been a Batman fan for as long as I can remember. From collecting the Batman Adventures comics as a kid and watching Batman: The Animated Series (which has never been bettered) to where I now try to collect as many Batman graphic novels as possible to keep me up to date with … Continue reading What I want to see in The Dark Knight Rises
This is going to be the greatest summer for blockbuster movies probably ever! That is because there are three films that will hopefully set a new standard in Superhero films. The actual superhero genre of films has been so watered down and overdone that it takes something special to actually register. This summer we should have three films that will hopefully register. Two of the films are the end of a long process and another is designed to be the beginning. Whether by design or coincidence, the studios behind these three films have decided to release them in the same … Continue reading Batman versus Spiderman versus The Avengers!
