Phenomenal filmmaking...

"Tell me something, my friend. You ever dance with the devil in the pale moonlight?"

When director Tim Burton grasped the reigns of the first serious screen manifestation of the DC Comics superhero, The Dark Knight (a.k.a. Batman), fans were understandably slightly nervous considering the director's little prior experience as a filmmaker. If one inspects director Burton's current r... read more

Gotham City is witnessing its most darkest, and coldest, night in living history. Christopher Nolan stands on the rooftops next to the bat-signal, waiting for his harsh-voiced detective to appear. Sipping on his cup of coffee, Nolan looks into the distance and thinks to himself, "Why am I rebooting Batman? Oh yes, because of those Schumacher disasters.", he pauses to take another sip. Then his min... read more

Batman review

“Frankly, Batman 89 should not have been as successful as it was but they stumbled onto a great marketing gimmick by releasing a trailer that had some bombastic visuals.  Batman cruising around in a missile shaped Batmobile with guns that pop out of the hood.  Breaking through the roof of a museum in that iconic rubber suit.  When that trailer dropped everyone wanted to see Batman because...damn, this was something new. But this movie really doesn't have a cohesive story.  The fatal flaw is that Burton's actions scenes are quite awkward and spaced out by too many scenes where nothing of interest is happening.  When a fight scene finally happens, Vickie Vale screams, Batman dispatches goons in a few karate moves, and they drive off in the Batmobile.  Later, Batman turns on the TV and s” read more

1001 Movies ... my own version (1980's) (133 movies items)

" Notes: Nowadays, Marvel is pretty much ruling the box-office but there was a time when they were nowhere to be found and it was DC who came out with some very successful super-hero features. First, at the end of the 70's, with 'Superman', and then 10 years later with this movie focusing this time on the Dark Knight. I remember it very well when it came out, there was a huge buzz about this movie. Indeed, you could see the famous logo all over the place, there was some Batman merchandising ever"

"Ehkä 3. katselukerta. Nuorempana pidin paljonkin, enää en kuitenkaan löytänytyt sellaista lapsuuden hehkua. Hävittääkö aika hohdon, kadottaako se nostalgian? (vai päinvastoin?) Taisin torkahtaa ennen elokuvan loppukliimaksia. Vai oliko tässä sellaista? Mitä minä muistan: Jack Nicholson putoaa happoaltaaseen ja luoti lävistää hänen poskensa piirtäen hullunkurisen ilmeen hänen kasvoilleen muistumana Nauruihmisen huikeasta loistosta, hämärästä surusta joka pukeutuu ikuiseen "
