The Definitive Mr. Freeze Story
"This is how I shall always remember you, surrounded by winter; forever young, forever beautiful. Rest well, my love. The monster who took you from me will soon learn that revenge is a dish best served cold." - Victor Fries
Up until 1992, Mr. Freeze, formerly Mr. Zero, was a rather flat character with little to no discernible personality to speak of. He was simply a theme villain, one of many in Batman's rogue's gallery, a person who's entire persona revolved around a gimmick, in this case ice and cold. All of that changed in 1992 when Heart of Ice premiered on Fox. Batman: The Animated Series guest writer Mike Mignola (best known for creating comic character Hellboy), was tasked with retooling the Mr. Freeze character. The result was a tragic figure, once a good man who was driven to mad desperation by the illness of his wife and then twisted and disfigured by a terrible accident. Mr. Freeze was elevated from a one-dimensional cliché to a complex and compelling force, joining the ranks of other characters like Two-Face and the Joker as villains that are both dangerous and compelling.
This episode was so respected that it won an Emmy for Outstanding Writing in an Animated Program and remains a favorite among fans.
What the #$*! Do We (K)now!? (2004)
Truly a disappointment.
At first glance this documentary/fiction/cartoon is quite entertaining and thought provoking. Of course, when something provokes thought, it can then be scrutinized. The reality is this movie combines metaphysics with innuendo and baseless conclusions. The link that "What the Bleep..." would have you see between science and spirituality is, in fact, not rooted in science at all. The Transcendental Meditation study mentioned in the film claims that meditation by a group can reduce crime in a given area, Washington D.C. in this case. In reality the HRA (Homicides, Rapes, and Assaults) crime rate was about 30% higher in 1993 than the average crime rate between 19881992. There was absolutely no decrease in the homicide rate during the study. In fact, each and every claim that links metaphysics to science can and has been debunked.
My conclusion from this information is that this movie is either a poor attempt to indoctrinate people or a joke. Either way, I suggest that you do not waste your time.
If you are looking for a long winded movie about science that could provoke thoughts, you might consider Mindwalk (1990).
