Ranking the Films of the Caped Crusader

16 hours ago | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

For almost 50 years, Batman has graced the silver screen.  Whether working solo or accompanied by sidekicks and associates, Gotham City is continually saved by his enduring presence.  Even though the eight theatrical live-action films featuring the Caped Crusader have had their ups and downs, there is no denying his appeal as a lead character.

With that in mind, these are all theatrical Batman releases, ranked from worst to best:

8. Batman and Robin (1997)

The dark cloud over a struggling franchise, Joel Schumacher’s second directorial outing in the Batman franchise hammered the last nail in the coffin and became known as one of the worst sequels, nay films, of all time.  From the garish set design, poor character development, uninspired casting and hideously unfunny pun-filled script, Batman and Robin was a mistake from the moment it went into production.

 

7. Batman: The Movie (1966)

Occasionally forgotten as the first theatrical Batman film, this »

The Trip To Italy Review

10 August 2014 10:01 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Michael Winterbottom’s marriage of friendship and cuisine teaches us something special about life’s under-appreciated beauty. Think about how many times you barbarically power through a meal, either while watching mind-numbing television, chained to your desk at work, or squeezed in between hectic life events. Isn’t it sad how we take such a joyous occasion for granted? Meals should be shared escapes, exploring flavors and discovering new emotions, but more importantly, they should bring people together for a bit of peace, relaxation, and joyful interaction. The Trip nails this mentality, showcasing Winterbottom’s magnificent command over Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon, and The Trip To Italy only builds upon the duo’s hilarious first effort. Hope you didn’t fill up on the appetizer, because Winterbottom’s second course is a truly decadent comedic treat.

HBO Drama Pilot Westworld Recruits Its Wider Cast

7 August 2014 3:48 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Following the news that J.J. Abrams’ rather appropriately named Bad Robot would be moving ahead with a TV adaptation of Westworld, we now have official confirmation of the wider cast that will be joining lead stars Sir Anthony Hopkins and Evan Rachel Wood in the troubled tourist attraction. The iconic movie that was released in 1973 was written and directed by Michael Crichton, and centred on a western-themed amusement park operated by humanoid robots that malfunction. This TV adaptation will present an alternative take on that premise, and with the cast list lengthening, the production is now gathering momentum.

Jeffrey Wright (Boardwalk Empire) will star as Bernard Lowe – Head of the theme park’s Programming Division. Alongside that character will be Shannon Woodward (Raising Hope), playing Elsie King – a talented member of the Programming Division who is headed for great things, and works to identify problematic behaviours among the park’s hosts. »

Quentin Tarantino, Chris Nolan & J.J. Abrams Save Film From Extinction

31 July 2014 6:44 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Digital filmmaking has overtaken analog, but there are some directors who refuse to let film stock die out. And so Hollywood studios are stepping in to lend support to Kodak in its time of crisis. Following Fujifilm's shutting down its film stock production last year, Kodak is the only company left that still makes the nearly obsolete medium. However, powerful directors like J.J. Abrams, Christopher Nolan, Quentin Tarantino and Judd Apatow have joined forces to save Kodak from the brink of extinction. Together--with the help of some unnamed allies--they pushed Hollywood studios to step in and financially support Kodak so that film stock can continue to be made and processed. This will include keeping open Fotokem, the last film processing lab in Hollywood. THR reports that Kodak CEO Jeff Clarke declared in a statement: After extensive discussions with filmmakers, leading studios and others who recognize the unique artistic and »

Films paid for almost entirely by a wealthy(ish) benefactor

31 July 2014 3:33 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Without the help of some brave investors, or the pockets of their makers, the following films would never have existed...

It's now a fairly common mantra that you'd be a fool to put up all of your own personal money into a feature film. By all means invest, but share the risk, or throw a few quid at Kickstarter.

Paying for the bulk of the negative/hard drive yourself, and leaving your own assets exposed? Utter lunacy.

Not that anyone told this lot...

The Passion Of The Christ Paid for by: Mel Gibson

For some time, Mel Gibson had, alongside his acting roles, been heavily invested in his production company, Icon. As such, he had two significant ways to earn money, and he needed both of them when it came to making The Passion Of The Christ.

This is the kind of film that studios run a mile from. All »

See the Mission Patch from 'Interstellar' Given Out at Comic-Con

25 July 2014 1:12 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

We don't officially have a category for "swag", but this falls into that classification. As a big space nerd and sci-fi lover, I can't help but share this nifty bit of swag from Comic-Con that I picked up today. During the Paramount panel yesterday, where they surprised fans in Hall H by bringing out Interstellar director Christopher Nolan and Matthew McConaughey (read our full recap of that panel), the studio handed out tickets to be redeemed for a "prize". That prize? The mission patch from Interstellar, for the "Endurance" Space Exploration mission. It's small piece of swag, it's nerdy, but it's also kind of awesome. In full below. Here's the mission patch that was handed as a prize for those who were at Paramount's Comic-Con panel. Recap our coverage of Interstellar at Comic-Con here, including quotes from Nolan and McConaughey. Interstellar is directed by British filmmaker Christopher Nolan, of the films Doodlebug, »

As digital comics have become a driving force of the medium, more publishers and creators have launched digital first lines of comics. How do publishers and creators deal with the unique properties of the web and tablet? How do readers react? Are they an evolution from webcomics or their own medium?

Nicole Kidman stars as Christine Lucas, a woman who had a terrifying accident in her past, resulting in anterograde amnesia, where her mind is wiped clean each day, remembering nothing from her past life. Colin Firth plays her husband Ben, who must remind Christine who she is every day of her life, with Mark Strong starring as the mysterious Dr. Nash, who is trying to help Christine get her memory back. Written and directed by Rowan Joffe, based on the international best-selling novel by S.J. Watson, Before I Go to Sleep hits theaters on September 12.

How Holes in Data Analysis Can Overstate the Prevalence of Racism, Sexism and Success in Film

27 June 2014 5:15 AM, PDT | Hope for Film | See recent Hope for Film news »

By Beanie Barnes

Data is a funny thing.  It can, at once, confirm and discredit the exact same theory.  For example, if a $500m film makes $100m at the box office on its opening weekend, it could mean that the film is a) a bust or b) gaining momentum.  Such was the case with Avatar.   By the end of 2009, several people were calling the film a “flop,” but by mid-2010, it was obvious that, of all the words to describe Avatar, “flop” was not one of them.  And although the film has been hailed as a marketing and technological success, if it had failed, it very likely would have been called it a marketing and technological bomb (with marketing heads rolling at the studio).

Misreading data is prevalent in film.  It isn’t so much that we misread the tea leaves, so much as it is that, rather than reading »

Marvel Changes Movies Part 2: Building an Empire

25 June 2014 9:23 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

After over sixty years of ups and downs, Marvel was poised to begin building its film empire right at the start of the new millennium.  Blade had released in 1999 and showed that a Marvel character could be successful on screen for the first time, and Marvel Studios was licensing its characters to production companies after their comic book successes in the 90s.  At that point, no one knew what a huge success Marvel movies would be and few companies were willing to give a Marvel property the budget it needed to be done well.  No one would have believed that in a little over a decade, Marvel would be at the forefront of Hollywood.  Today we’ll look at the movies Marvel released from 2000 on and analyze what it took to build an empire.

 

Movies are changing, and Marvel is at the helm.  Join us for part 2 of a four »

"Dracula Untold" Gets More Posters

16 June 2014 12:36 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The makers of Universal's upcoming "Dracula Untold" are, unsurprisingly, taking their marketing approach right out of the playbook of the film that's still used today as the textbook example of how to do a rebooted origin story right - 2005's "Batman Begins".

Following the international poster release earlier this morning, two versions of the domestic poster have just dropped and again there's a distinct resemblance to the artwork for the first Chris Nolan Dark Knight outing almost a decade ago now. Even so, they're stylish nonetheless.

Looking for a handy list of the science fiction films still to look forward to this year? Then here's the post for you...

Odd List

The year's nearly half over, and we've already experienced a range of genre movies, some great, some less so.

But with the summer season finally here and about six months left before the terrifying prospect of 2015 hoves into view, there are still plenty more science fiction offerings to be found in a cinema near you.

Here's a pick of 11 of our favourites, plus a selection of honourable mentions at the end, which includes films that don't yet have a firm release date in the Us or UK.

Edge Of Tomorrow

In terms of sheer entertainment value, Edge Of Tomorrow could be this summer's dark horse. That it's based on a relatively obscure Japanese novel (All You Need Is Kill - the film's original, far less »

Ben Affleck’s Batman and Batmobile revealed!

13 May 2014 9:51 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Please excuse me as my hands are shaking. Maybe I should go outside and vent quickly.

Arrrggghhhhh New Batman!

Okay I think that’s got it out for now.

Following on from yesterday’s partial reveal of Batman vs. Superman’s Batmobile by Zack Snyder, we were all waiting to see it in all its glory. We didn’t quite get that, but we’ve been given so much more. The first image of Ben Affleck in the new Batsuit.

Here it is…

Breathe. Settle down.

From first impressions this is by far the most faithful representation of Batman on film. The colours (presumably), the fins on the gauntlets, and how the cowl attaches to the suit. Even a belt with lots of pouches! It’s all there and reminds me a lot of Jim Lee’s iconic take on the character. Oh, I forgot to say that Affleck looks Huge. »
