The sad fact is, DC comics has only one truly popular film character, and it’s Batman. This is not to say that recent efforts involving Superman or Green Lantern weren’t fun or enjoyable. It’s just that Batman consistently sets the bar high, despite a few stumbles. So let’s talk about the Batman films, not so much a review as just a “what worked and didn’t” look. And for clarification, I’m only doing the only-theatrical movies, so no films of the series, nor the animated series film (I already covered that one).
If you’ve been living under a rock, then you wouldn’t know that the genius known as Tim Burton has been working on Alice in Wonderland.
If you are aware of Mr. Burton’s endeavours, then you probably know that today a trailer for it was released onto the internet. It spread like wildfire, only to be deleted by Disney (because they suck).
I did a little “Google Magic” and found a version of it on MetaCafe. In order to download it to my PC, I had to install a shitty program known as MetaCafe pro. After putting the video into the program, I put it onto my PC, and then uploading it to our Youtube account. See how much I love you guys?
So here you go, if I had a pair of testicles I’d tell Disney to suck on them. Hell, I hope Disney finds a pair to suck in my honor.
(oh, by the way… this trailer totally rocks my socks. I can’t wait for March 5th, 2010.)
Everyone grows up; this is how the world works. Just because we grow decrepit and old, however, does not mean we have to forsake the things that make us happy, childish though they may seem. This is the core concept of Marooners’ Rock; we geek out on the things of our past, present, and future. Society and cultural norms be damned!
