Fire up the Batsignal, because Batman (1989) is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Review in a Nutshell: Batman (1989) is an uneven, sometimes idiosyncratic film that in some sense set the pattern for later superhero movies, for good or for ill. Although the Nolan films have eclipsed the work of Tim Burton and his cast and crew in the pop culture consciousness, this version of Batman was instrumental in reintroducing the Dark Knight to an entire generation of movie-goers.

Ruining Katherin’s Childhood (Again)

Hold onto your Omega Hedrons, because Supergirl is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring the return of Katherin “the Great”.

Review in a Nutshell:  A super hero film from a more innocent time, Supergirl seems painfully unsophisticated by modern standards.  Nonetheless it has some interesting imagery and a plot that can best be described as “completely bonkers”.

This movie contains:

Drunken Wizards.

KILLDOZER!

A Black Magic Woman.

Revenge of the Ugly Puppy Syndrome

Fire up your motorcycle, because Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Review in a Nutshell:  This movie is enjoyably terrible, and the review strays into some surprisingly intellectual territory.  We are all shameless Nicolas Cage apologists. Do not believe our lies.

Strap on your bandana, because Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Review in a Nutshell:  Nostalgia notwithstanding, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles holds up surprisingly well for a children’s film.  The action and humor are solid, and the special effects and puppetry still look great even 20+ years later. 

This movie contains:

Ninjas.

Casey Jones.

Underage Smoking.

Sam Rockwell!?!

Double Feature: Adamantium (Nerd) Rage

Polish up your grappling hooks, because Batman: Mask of the Phantasm is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring the official return of Sean “Hollywood” Hunting.

Review in a Nutshell:  Despite a few flaws in the production values, Batman: Mask of the Phantasm is one of the most respected and beloved adaptations of the Batman comic books.  Because of the mature themes it explores, it is considered by many to be the apex of the Batman: The Animated Series cartoon series.
