Batman vs. Robin

Batman vs. Robin

| April 12, 2015

The latest entry in the DC Animated Universe, Batman vs. Robin (2015), marks the fourth installment in DC’s series of interconnected, straight-to-video animated narratives (after the pair of Justice League pictures—War and Throne of Atlantis—and Son of Batman). It also, to my mind, stands as perhaps the most impressively realized animated feature to come out […]

Teen Titans Go!: Appetite for Disruption

| April 7, 2015

As a fan of the 2003-2006 Cartoon Network Teen Titans series, I approached Teen Titans Go! with enormous skepticism rather than excitement. After all, I saw Batman go from the seminal Batman: The Animated Series to the in many ways equally significant Batman Beyond, only to then get the occasionally chuckle-worthy, yet largely unimpressive Batman: The […]

When I, and I venture to guess most of you, think about film serials, what springs immediately to mind are images of action/adventure stories featuring heroes like Buck Rogers or even Batman and Captain Marvel. And of course there are also plenty of science fiction/horror serials like The Phantom Creeps (1933), prominently featured across a […]

I tend not to expect to be teary eyed when I watch a Batman film. I expect, rather, that I’ll be excited by action, enthralled with exposition, and surprised by a twist. Honestly, I can admit that I felt all of those emotions, but for different reasons. I am quite surprised by how the emotional […]

I don’t know if superhero team-ups have ever been in such high demand as they are now, following the box office smash of Marvel’s The Avengers in 2012. Even DC is looking to cash in on the movie’s success with the upcoming Man of Steel sequel featuring both Batman and Wonder Woman. But Marvel, having […]

I make it a point to seek out the good in all things. Whether I’m looking at a film/show/etc. as a critic or a scholar, I try my damnedest to find a positive spin on the text. But sometimes, it’s just not possible. However, even then, I always try to accentuate the positive. That’s why, […]

On Friday, July 20, 2012, it all ended. By ‘it’ I mean Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy. And by ‘end’ I mean he’s done with it. And to prove he’s done with it, the exceptional director has done everything he can to ensure no one could possibly, ever, in any way, make a continuation of his […]
