Batman 30th Anniversary – 4K UHD Review!

by Bryan Kluger on Jun 11th, 2019

In 1989, the birth of summer blockbusters became real with Tim Burton’s Batman. Before that, the superhero genre was not the behemoth it was today with A-list actors, 9-figure budgets, and compelling dramatic tones. In fact, it was quite the opposite. Us comic books fans had to settle for slapstick one-liners in low budget sets and costumes to get our favorite heroes on screen. It wasn’t until that summer where everything changed and paved the way for films like X-Men, the MCU, and Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight franchise. It was a strange decision too, but Warner Bros. and DC Comics decided on the young filmmaker Tim Burton to take on the large budget and big named comic book adaptation of Batman. Until then, Burton had only done Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure and Beetlejuice.

You never thought we’d get a crossover feature animated film of Batman and Scooby-Doo, did you? Well we have one now and I’m here to say that’s it’s quite a fun experience that combines both the DC Universe and the classic Scooby-Doo antics that we’ve grown to love. This marks the 30th Scooby-Doo film and brings back the whole ‘Batman: The Brave and the Bold‘ cast back to the screen, which is the first time since 2011 when they went off the air with their hit TV show. On paper, or even the fun poster art of the film, you wouldn’t think these two worlds would mix well together, but when the two universes collide, its seems like they were always meant to be together and solve crimes together. They are the peanut butter and jelly of the animated world.

4K UHD Review: ‘Batman Begins’!

by Bryan Kluger on Jan 2nd, 2018

THE FILM


Since 1989, we were thrilled to have Batman movies. In 1989, we received are first big budget Batman film from newcomer director at the time Tim Burton. It went onto be a box office sensation and spawned three more sequels, which became increasingly worse and silly. By the time the 4th film got around, it was more like watching a slapstick cartoon than anything good or resembling Batman. In fact, the franchise became a joke. Then came along Christopher Nolan who made his trilogy of Batman films, starting with ‘Batman Begins‘, which told a much darker and realistic side of the Dark Knight. The results were astounding on both critical and box office fronts.

I’m gonna go ahead and say it. There won’t be a better film than this all year. On January 9th, 2018, Warner Bros. is releasing ‘Scooby-Doo & Batman: The Brave and the Bold‘ on Digital Streaming. How can Warner Bros. team up this duo? Well, the villains of the Batman universe have partnered up with the villains of the Scooby Doo universe to terrorize the city. Batman then decides to join the other detective agency of Mystery Inc with Scooby, Shaggy, Fred, Daphne, and Velma to fight crime. There are so many scenarios I want to see played out here. I want to see Batman slap Fred. I want to see Velma and Daphne fight over Batman. I want to see Shaggy try to unmask Batman. I want to see Scooby wear a Bat-Dog costume. I want the Joker and Ghost Clown to torture civilians. I don’t think this is asking for too much.

Film Review: ‘The LEGO Batman Movie’!

Dan M., here….

The Lego Batman Movie or Deadpool for Families.

When it was released in 2014, The Lego Movie shocked me with how great it was. It was hilarious, had a brilliant concept, and a big reveal that was executed perfectly. It is also one of the few non-Disney/Pixar movies to have a ton of heart. Since that time I’ve seen some Lego Frozen shorts on Disney Channel and some Star Wars Lego stuff thanks to my kids and the humor is pretty top notch. The Lego Batman Movie takes all of these elements and created a truly laugh out loud movie, with a fun story, and some heartwarming moments. It is an A+ family movie.

When Ben Affleck isn’t making the next Boston crime movie or saying “Yes” to a cameo role in Kevin Smith’s latest direct-to-video film, he’s reading comic books with Matt Damon and deciding on which next Hollywood starlet to take out for a steak dinner and never call again. The guy is a badass in every sense of the word. There’s nothing he can’t do. I’m just surprised he doesn’t have an EGOT yet. You can say a lot of things about Affleck, but you can’t say he doesn’t know when to say “no”. Affleck announced today that he will be stepping down from his role as director in the upcoming ‘Batman‘ film for Warner Bros., where he will indeed be playing Batman once again.

I have been waiting for a very long time to see ‘Batman: The Killing Joke‘ come to life on screen. This is one of those stories that has a larger importance, than just an entertaining read, it’s a bit of an origin story and remains a linchpin in the Batman/Joker/Commissioner Gordon/Batgirl saga. Spoilers ahead, darlings.

THE FILM

For all the comic book fans around the globe, we live in a great time of moviemaking. Over the past decade, we’ve seen Hollywood take the superhero genre by storm, releasing comic book movie after comic book movie with A-list stars, talented directors, and epic budgets to bring our childhood heroes to life on the big screen. This successful genre has even garnered many awards, as well as numerous television shows on almost every network. It shows no signs of slowing up. Marvel has paved the way for superhero franchises, building on each superhero character that culminated into the ‘Avengers‘ movies, showcasing each superhero across the other superhero movies, providing a big bridge to gather all stories together. It’s been an  excellent financial and critical success.

One day can’t turn a man bad, right? According to The Joker, it’s not only possible, but what turned him into the diabolical fiend he is and in ‘Batman: The Killing Joke‘ he attempts to prove the point to Commissioner Gordon. This is the plot line to one of the most polarizing comic in Batman’s canon of works by Alan Moore and artist Brian Bolland.

‘Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice’ Rated R?!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Feb 24th, 2016

Hey guys, Jana here,

how-much-extra-footage-do-you-expect-will-be-shown-at-the-imax-screening-365533

Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice‘ has received a new MPAA rating, this time as an R rating. No, this is NOT for the theatrical version, but rather as an option for the home video under the title “Ultimate Edition” when it completes its theatrical run. It’s disappointing that we won’t get to see that kind of violence on the big-screen, though.

Hey guys, Jana here,

DC fans have made themselves heard – loudly – on their presumptions of how ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice‘ is going to be. Some are excited, some are…less so. One fan even equated his expectations of Ben Affleck’s Batman to casting Barack Obama as Ronald Reagan. So this film is clearly torn down the middle as far as the fans outlook. We now have a small, slight, tiny peek, so small it can’t even be called a trailer in preparation of the full trailer dropping tomorrow night during ‘Jimmy Kimmel‘, so try, if possible, to reserve judgment.

Check out what we’ve been given and see what you think!

The ‘Lego Batman‘ movie is moving full steam ahead and they’ve got one hell of a cast assigned to the flick, already, but more casting info is still coming in. We gave you the rundown of the latest who’s who that you can read about here. In addition to the already star-studded cast, we’ve got one more for you today and that is who’s going to be voicing Commissioner Gordon and you’re never gonna believe who it is!

*******UPDATE*******

So it looks like Commissioner Gordon will NOT have the voice of this particular angel, but it looks like Carey will be the mayor of Gotham. I wonder if the creators are going to model this character after her voice, and if so – how naked will she be?

Warner Brothers and DC Comics had the con all to themselves as Marvel skipped this year due to not having enough current projects close enough to completion to show off or warrant a big panel gathering. So the Warner Bros. panel was a standing room only crowd and their anticipation paid off as two big trailers debuted for the fans: ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice‘ and ‘Suicide Squad‘ played to roaring approval.
