Joker (2019) Movie Review

So, before I began;  “Where have you been?”  You might ask.  The answer…Stuff came up. Changes in life.  I wanted to create more and critique less, and in the process I neglected doing these reviews for a long while.  The only movies I could have written about (other than maybe Jim Jarmusch’s The Dead Don’t Die…which reminds me, I should do a series on him), … Continue reading Joker (2019) Movie Review

Batman: Assault On Arkham (2014) Movie Review

Well, here it is.  Possibly my last Batman Arkham review, until Warner Bros decide to bring out a new chapter in the series without rocksteady, and until I possibly decide to review the comics.  What can be said about Assault On Arkham? Directed by Jay Oliva (who directed the animated film version of Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns) and Ethan Spaulding (who directed 12 … Continue reading Batman: Assault On Arkham (2014) Movie Review

Batman Returns (1992) Movie Review

I dedicate this review to Vincent Andrew Schiavelli, who played the minor villain known as The Organ Grinder in this film.  He passed away 10 years ago today.  An excellent character actor who once gave a soviet policeman a real pineapple while on the set of Amadeus (something they didn’t see outside of a picture on a tin can). First I reviewed the 1989 film … Continue reading Batman Returns (1992) Movie Review

Batman (1989) Movie Review

I know, I know.  “The Summer Of Batman” is technically in hibernation, and I haven’t finished everything yet…But who cares?  Batman is an all year ’round kind of guy, since he works at night, and if you live in the northern hemisphere, the period between October and March is as Batmanny in real life as it gets.  Especially when you consider Batman stories on Halloween … Continue reading Batman (1989) Movie Review

Batman: Arkham Origins: Blackgate (2013) Video Game Review

If you’re reading this review, chances are you already know the Arkham series quite well.  Asylum?  Fantastic.  City?  One of the best video games ever made.  Origins?  A very good attempt by a non-Rocksteady developer.  And Knight?  Still excellent.  But then there’s this game, which came out on the same day as Origins.  What can be said?  Lets find out. Format-wise, this game is much … Continue reading Batman: Arkham Origins: Blackgate (2013) Video Game Review

The Dark Knight (2008) Movie Review

Is the summer of Batman over?  Yes, but considering autumn and winter seem to create a better “feel” for Batmany things, I think it’s only fitting to continue.  We’ve already talked about Batman Begins, so now lets talk about its sequel. What if I told you that there is a film that has officially become a standard bearer for superhero movies?  A film that is … Continue reading The Dark Knight (2008) Movie Review

Batman: Arkham Knight (2015) Video Game Review

Before we begin, I need to say this:  If you haven’t played Arkham Asylum, Arkham City & possibly Arkham Origins, do not read this review.  It will contain spoilers to those 2 or 3 instalments, and I wouldn’t want to do that…because I love you. So, here it is.  Not only is this my first PS4 game review, but it’s also the review of the … Continue reading Batman: Arkham Knight (2015) Video Game Review

Batman: Arkham Origins (2013) Video Game Review

So, after we saw 2 of the best Batman games ever made, Warner Bros decided it would be a good idea to create a prequel to the Arkham series.  1 that set the scene (or partly set the scene) of the events that would come by Arkham Asylum.  So…Arkham Origins. Set on Christmas Eve during Bruce Wayne’s 2nd year as the Dark Knight, our focus … Continue reading Batman: Arkham Origins (2013) Video Game Review

Batman: Arkham City (2011) Video Games Review

NOTE: This review will contain spoilers of Arkham Asylum.  If you haven’t played it first, I insist that you do before reading this. After Arkham Asylum exceeded all expectations of a Batman video game, some might wonder if it was possible to do it again, only with a new story, new background and new characters mixed with old.  Thankfully, Rocksteady not only did this…they may … Continue reading Batman: Arkham City (2011) Video Games Review

Batman: Arkham Asylum (2009) Video Game Review

“The Summer Of Batman” continues with this review, which involves spending the summer (and possibly the autumn) watching, playing and reading all things Batman.  To begin the project, I read a Batman comic called The Black Mirror, watched Batman Begins, and played this game. So…Arkham Asylum, what’s the story?  One night, in the middle of February, in Bruce Wayne’s 7th year as the caped crusader, … Continue reading Batman: Arkham Asylum (2009) Video Game Review
