Batman Rises with a New Statue from Iron Studios 

Batman Rises with a New Statue from Iron Studios 

Batman has had so many films over the years so it's hard to place a finger on your favorites sometimes. One of the best ones, in my opinion, is from the Christopher Nolan series. It gave a darker and grittier DC Comics world that I could get behind. The villains were real and grounded which made it […]

'Pennyworth': Epix Unveils Official Teaser for Batman Universe Prequel Series

With FOX's Gotham coming to an end (with The Dark Knight expected to make an appearance in the series final that will most likely be longer than Tom Welling's blink-and-you'll-miss-Superman ending to Smallville), Batman fans are going to be in need for some more Caped Crusader mythos. No frets, folks! Epix has unveiled an official […]

'Gotham': "Penguin, Our Hero" Brings the Series Scratching Back [SPOILER REVIEW]

There is a certain feeling a fan of FOX's Gotham gets when the show is firing on all cylinders–a certain giddy rush that washes over you–and "Penguin, Our Hero" is an entire hour of that feeling, with one explosive revelation after another. Tze Chun's script deftly balances humor, action, horror, and tragedy in an episode that briskly […]

'Gotham' Season 5 Episode 2 "Trespassers" Limps Down Fury Road [SPOILER REVIEW]

Last week's season 5 Gotham premiere 'Year Zero' set the tone for what the rest of season five of the show should have been. But the second episode of FOX's Batman prequel series Trespassers came close to derailing a great start with a messy and uneven–and largely unnecessary–detour into the series' blander territory that made Gotham easy for many to […]

The Christopher Nolan 4K Box Set Is Unreal, In The Best Ways

Director Christopher Nolan is a perfectionist, and the majority of his films show this. We recently upgraded our home theater system to a 7.1.2, specifically in order to really appriciate the wide range of things being offered on 4K Ultra HD, like the Warner Brothers Christopher Nolan 4K/Blu Ray box set collection. The 21 disc set contains Nolan's […]

Hans Zimmer

Hans Zimmer Live, The Composer's Orchestral Rock Concert

One of the many joys in a reviewer's life centers on composers and their film scores, few more iconic than Hans Zimmer. Such a rich and storied list of movies and projects have featured scores written by Zimmer over the past 33 years. Imagine the possibility of seeing pieces from Crimson Tide, The Da Vinci Code, and Sherlock Holmes […]

A Batman Lover Comes To The Dark Knight's Defence

Recently, my fellow Bleeding Cool writer Joshua Davison reviewed Batman #25 by Tom King, Mikel Janin and June Chung. He gave it a rather average score of 5 out of 10. I also reviewed the very same issue and gave it the somewhat more favourable score of 10 out of 10. Now, some seem to […]
