Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory Review
Roald Dahl's classic book comic to life on the big screen stars Gene Wilder as Willy Wonka, Peter Ostrum as Charlie Bucket, and Jack Albertson as Grandpa Joe. I remember I used to rent this movie a lot at our local convenient store that rented movies down the road from us as a kid. I was even in a play of the movie in the 3rd Grade, I played a blue Oompa Loompa, but I was really shy back then so I didn't try out for one of the bigger roles.
Anyway I still love to watch this movie even today from time to time, and it's still as great as I remember it to be, maybe even better. What I love most about this movie is Gene Wilder as Willy Wonka. This is the first Gene Wilder movie that I saw and became a fan of his after watching his performance. He is the best Willy Wonka in my opinion. You never knew what he was thinking or what he was going to do next, in fact, Willy Wonka's first entrance was actually Gene Wilder's idea and the reason he decided to do the movie, which is brilliant. As for the other performances, I thought Peter Ostrum did a great job as Charlie, for this being his first and only film role. Jack Albertson was great as Grandpa Joe as well.
The songs I actually don't mind all that much in the movie, and I don't think they are a distraction. I think the songs are catchy and timeless, my favorite song has to be Pure Imagination.
My only complaints about this movie are kind of small nitpicks like how they don't talk about that crazy boat ride ever again or how we don't know what happened to the rest of the kids in the end, unless they meant for that to be unexplained.
Overall this movie is just classic and very enjoyable with great music, set designs, as well as great performances, and funny moments. I highly recommend this movie to really anybody, it's a timeless classic that can be enjoyed by anyone at any age, this movie is simply pure imagination.
Batman Begins (2005)
Batman Begins Review
Christopher Nolan's reboot of the iconic comic book character stars Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Michael Caine as Alfred, and Gary Oldman as Jim Gordon. Now I actually first saw this movie after I had seen The Dark Knight which I loved and wanted to see the first movie and I absolutely love this movie. I'm probably one of the few people believe it or not that might actually like Batman Begins a little more than The Dark Knight, and I'm going to tell you why.
First off, I love how they tell Batman's origin story, this was the first time they showed Batman's origin in a live-action movie, the other one was animated in Batman: Mask Of The Phantasm, but it's great to see what led Bruce to become the Dark Knight.
Next, I love what they did with the character of Jim Gordon, and his relationship with Batman. This was the first time we see this version of the character in a live-action movie besides the animated version from the Animated Series, which is my favorite. I love Gordon and Batman working together and how they're introduced in the movie.
Another thing I love is the whole look of the movie, great cinematography and production design. The setting and the tone of the movie looked and felt like Gotham City to me.
Lastly, the score, I kind of like Danny Elfman's score a little more but, it's still a great score, and very powerful.
The only complaint I have about this movie is kind of minor and that's the design of the Batsuit, I just think it looked too bulky, I like that they changed the design for The Dark Knight. I also don't really mind Christian Bale's Batman voice in this movie, I thought it was better in this movie that in The Dark Knight.
Overall this is an awesome Batman movie, and I'm glad that this movie also focused more on Batman and not the villains for a change, which is nice. I highly recommend this movie to Batman and comic book fans as well as fans of Christopher Nolan. Wonderful story, design, acting, and all around great start to the amazing Dark Knight trilogy.
Pee-wee's Big Adventure (1985)
Pee-Wee's Big Adventure Review
Tim Burton's directorial debut stars Paul Reubens as Pee-Wee Herman, Elizabeth Daily as Dottie, and Mark Holton as Francis.
This is one of those movies that I can watch over and over again and it never gets old. I first saw this movie on VHS as a kid and certain scenes scared me as a kid which were the Large Marge scene and the clown dream sequence, I remember I would always turn my head during those scenes because they freaked me out. I did still enjoy the movie though and would watch it a lot, because those scenes didn't ruin my enjoyment of the movie.
I still enjoy watching this movie even today and appreciate more now than I did then. Those certain scenes though don't scare me as much as they used to, but they are still creepy, the Large Marge scene though kind of makes me laugh now because of how random it is, and how you don't expect it when watching it for the first time. Anyway, there are a lot of things I love about this movie too.
First off, this movie is hilarious! yeah, most of the dialogue is silly, but it's Pee-Wee Herman, and his style of humor. This movie has a lot of funny quotes that are very memorable ("I know you are, but what am I".), and a lot of memorable scenes, it's hard for me to really pick a favorite. Another thing I love is the score by Danny Elfman, I believe this is Tim Burton's first collaboration with Elfman on the score, but it's a great score.
My only complaint in this movie is really a silly nitpick which is when Pee-Wee only takes two bites of cereal after that breakfast making invention, or whatever it's called, makes him all of that breakfast which looked really good, by the way.
Overall, this is a hilarious and enjoyable movie with some silly, yet memorable moments. I highly recommend this movie to fans of Pee-Wee's Playhouse, which this movie inspired, it's a very fun and entertaining movie.
Batman: The Animated Series (1992)
Batman: The Animated Series Review
This awesome animated Batman show stars the voice talents of Kevin Conroy as Batman/Bruce Wayne, Efrem Zimbalist Jr. as Alfred Pennyworth, and Bob Hastings as Commissioner James Gordon.
What can I say about this show that hasn't already been said by everyone, I love this show! I first discovered this show on VHS, and loved the episodes I watched, which were Christmas With The Joker and The Laughing Fish. To be honest though, I didn't become a big fan of the show until only a few years ago when I first bought the show on DVD and started watching all of the episodes. It's kind of hard to sum up everything I love about this show, but I'm going to try.
Okay, first off, I'm going to start out by saying I love the voice acting, phenomenal voice acting from a bunch of very talented actors who help bring the characters to life.
Second, the animation and character designs. The animation looks amazing, and beautifully drawn, I love the film noir style, 1940's look of the show. The character designs look like they were taken right from a comic book and brought to life on screen.
Next, the writing, I got to hand it to the writers for bringing so much emotional depth to the characters, especially what they did with Mr. Freeze in the Heart Of Ice episode, which is one of my favorites. They also introduced us to the character of Harley Quinn, which has since become a popular character in the DC Universe.
Lastly, the music, I love the different theme music for the characters, and of course Danny Elfman's classic score for the opening, it's just perfection.
Overall, there's really nothing bad I can say about this show. This is probably the best interpretation of the Batman character and mythos that we've ever had so far. I highly recommend this show to Batman and comic book fans alike. This show is just awesome, superb animation, writing, and voice acting, it's simply the best.
Batman & Mr. Freeze: SubZero (1998)
Batman & Mr. Freeze: Subzero Review
This direct to video animated Batman movie stars the voice talents of Kevin Conroy as Batman/Bruce Wayne, Michael Ansara as Mr.Freeze/Dr. Victor Fries, and Loren Lester as Robin/Dick Grayson.
This is another movie from my childhood that I used to watch a lot on VHS, and still enjoy watching it to this day.
Some of the things I love about this movie are first off, the animation and character designs. This is actually the last animated Batman movie to feature the original character designs from the animated series, which are my favorite designs of the Batman characters in animated form. They then changed the characters designs for the New Batman Adventures series, which I do like some of the new designs, but nothing beats the originals in my opinion.
Next thing I love is the voice acting, Kevin Conroy is awesome as usual, but I also love Michael Ansara as the voice of Mr. Freeze, I think he did an outstanding job, and his performance gives me chills (no pun intended) every time I hear his voice as Mr. Freeze. He's my favorite Mr. Freeze, and is in my opinion, the best interpretation of the character.
Overall I really don't have any complaints about this movie, I think its one of the best animated Batman movies, next to Mask Of The Phantasm, which is still my favorite. I highly recommend this movie to fans of the animated series, since this movie is basically based off of it. I'd give it an 8 out of 10.
Batman: Mask of the Phantasm (1993)
Batman: Mask Of The Phantasm Review
Batman's first full length animated feature film stars the voice talents of Kevin Conroy as Batman/Bruce Wayne, Dana Delany as Bruce's love interest, Andrea Beaumont, and Mark Hamill as the Joker.
I first saw this movie on TV when I was a kid, and remember loving it and wanted to get it on video. So one day when I was at a movie store in the mall (which sadly isn't there anymore) my mom said we could buy one video for me to take home and I knew what I wanted, but I couldn't remember the name of it, so I just said a Batman movie with the Joker. The video that I ended up getting wasn't the one I wanted, but instead I got something even better, 2 episodes of the Batman Animated Series with the Joker on video (which I still have), even though I didn't get what I wanted, I'm grateful for getting that video because it introduced me to the animated series.
Anyway back to the review. I didn't see this movie again until years later and I now appreciate this movie more now than I did then.
What I love most about this movie is Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill. To me, Kevin Conroy is Batman, yeah I know it's just his voice, but he does such an awesome job, and Mark Hamill, I mean who would have thought that Luke Skywalker could have such an awesome voice for the Joker, they are both the best voices for the animated Batman and Joker. Another thing I love is the score by Shirley Walker, it's just awesome. Lastly, I love the animation, the look of Gotham City and the character designs are awesome, I love the film noir look of the movie.
I actually really don't have any complaints about this movie, it's my favorite animated Batman movie and it's also the first time we see a little bit of Batman's origin story on film, which is great. So I highly recommend this to fans of the animated series, as well as Batman and comic book fans in general, I'd give this movie a 9 out of 10, awesome animated Batman movie.
Batman Returns (1992)
Batman Returns Review
Tim Burton's Batman sequel stars Michael Keaton donning the cape and cowl once again as Batman/Bruce Wayne, this time up against Danny Devito's sinister and grotesque Penguin/Oswald Cobblepot and Michelle Pfeiffer's mysterious and seductive Catwoman/Selena Kyle.
Now believe or not, this one was actually my favorite Batman movie when I was little, even though this one is considered darker and a little scarier than the first Batman movie, which I will admit there were parts of this movie that I couldn't watch, but like I said in my Batman 1989 review, I couldn't watch the whole movie when I was little because of Jack Nicholson's Joker, oddly enough, Devito's Penguin didn't scare me as much, I don't know, I can't really explain why. Anyway I used to watch this movie a lot on VHS, which I still own along with the DVD and now Blu Ray. I remember though I used to want to be Catwoman and I actually made a costume out of a trash bag, made some cat ears, and painted my face with whiskers, and then went around quoting Catwoman's lines ("I am Catwoman, hear me roar") yeah, I was a weird kid, anyway, back to the review.
I still enjoy this movie today, although I don't consider it my favorite Batman movie anymore. What I love about this movie is again Michael Keaton as Batman, like I said before, he's my favorite live-action Batman. Another thing is the Christmas setting, I love the winter look of Gotham City, great production design and cinematography, and finally of course I have to mention Danny Elfman's score, it's just the best. Now onto my complaints about the movie, first off I thought that Danny Devito and Michelle Pfeiffer kind of overdo it at times as the Penguin and Catwoman. I'm not saying their performances were bad, they were both great, Danny Devito is like the perfect casting choice for the Penguin in my opinion, I just thought they should have probably toned it down a little, basically them acting too animal-like, meaning with the Penguin squawking and Catwoman licking herself like a cat, I mean yeah she's trying to be like a cat, but seriously what is up with that? That's taking it a little too far in my opinion. Which brings me to my next complaint and that is, I think the film gets a little too dark at some parts and a little disturbing, I just kind of think they should have toned it down a little, like to how the first movie was. Also I wish they would have made the character of the Penguin look more like a human, like how he is in the comics, not half human, half penguin. Another minor complaint is I didn't really like the redesign of the bat suit in this one, I kind of prefer the one in the first movie, but I didn't hate the look of the bat suit.
Overall I do enjoy this movie, even though yeah it seemed like I had a lot of complaints but I get pass them while watching the movie and enjoy it for what it is, and it does have some good action moments. and also it's Batman. So I recommend this movie mainly to Tim Burton fans, but also Batman fans as well. I'd give it a 7 out of 10, it's an entertaining movie to watch.
Batman (1989) Review
Tim Burton's Batman stars Michael Keaton as the Caped Crusader, Jack Nicholson as the clown prince of crime, the Joker, and Kim Basinger as a photographer and Bruce Wayne/Batman's love interest, Vicki Vale.
I first saw this movie when I was about 6 years old and I was so scared of Jack Nicholson's performance as the Joker that I couldn't finish it, but when I was 13, I decided to watch the movie again and was able to watch the movie all the way through and was no longer scared of it, and I loved the movie and Nicholson's performance became one of my favorite parts of the movie.
I have always been a Batman fan and after watching this movie for the first time on Blu Ray, I realized how much I really do like this movie and how I appreciate it even more now than I did then. One of my favorite things about this movie besides Nicholson's performance is Michael Keaton as Batman, not so much as Bruce Wayne, but his performance as Batman, he's my favorite Batman next to Kevin Conroy ( I know it's just his voice, but he's still awesome).
After exploring more of the Batman universe though, I have a few small complaints about the movie and that is I realized how under-developed and under-used Commissioner Gordon and Harvey Dent are, they have a much bigger role in the Batman universe and I just think they got the short end of the stick. As for the other performances, I thought Kim Basinger did an okay job as Vicki Vale (although her screaming got kind of annoying after awhile, which I'm sure many will agree), and Robert Wuhl was good as Alexander Knox, sort of the comic relief of the movie. The other things I love about this movie is the score by Danny Elfman, it's just classic, speaking of the music, I actually don't mind the Prince music in the movie, I didn't really think it was too much of a distraction, in my opinion. I also love the production design and cinematography of the movie, the setting looked and felt like Gotham City to me.
Overall this is one of my favorite Batman movies of all time and I just love almost everything about this movie, the directing job by Tim Burton, the acting, the music, and the whole look of this movie, it's just great, it's a classic Batman movie and I highly recommend it to all Batman fans and comic book fans in general, awesome movie. :)
