Batman: Dead End

 
Batman: Dead End

There are times that a fan film comes along and knocks you on your ass. This is that film. It is hard to really write about this short film without ruining the surprises held within.

This film was made under the direction of Sandy Collora and premiered in 2003 at the San Diego Comic Con. It stars Clark Bartram as the Batman and Andrew Koenig as the Joker. Joker escapes into a dark alley where Batman reaches him and they square off with some choice words. Then surprise the Fit hits the Shan in one of the most creative twists this author has probably ever seen!

Keep your cape and mask in your closets, Bat-fans! Inception is here!

 
Inception

The most interesting trailer in the Inglorious Basterds showing was the shortest, a quick tease of Christopher Nolan's Inception. Set for next Summer, Nolan will try to hold our interest until he rounds up the gang for the inevitable third Batman film with this sci-fi mystery.

Leonardo DiCaprio is the lead(which got some chuckles from the audience since this tease was shown right after Scorsese's Shutter Island trailer. Hollywood has a fever, and the only prescription, is more DiCaprio, baby!) as he appears to be involved in another web of intrigue. The tease has a Matrix feel to it, not only by an overview shot of the city as a map, but with a fight breaking out inside a hotel corridor with both men flying halfway through the air(no sighting of The Architect, I'm Afraid).

Good evning y’all! This afternoon I’ll be teachin ya how to make an Apatow/Sandler stew.

This is a combination of two stews. The recently popular Apatow stew and the time-tested Sandler stew. Each one has their mandatory ingredients. These ingredients make the stews we expect, but is a combination of the two a good one? We’ll see.

Apatow stew requires the following:
3 cup – Penis jokes
1/3 cup – Fart jokes
2 Cups – Seth Rogen not getting laid jokes
1 tablespoon - Bad acting and typical scripting of Jonah Hill’s dialog
5 Tablespoons – Rogen having friends that give him pointers on getting laid.
At least 1 Cup – Mention of Rogen loosing weight

Dragon Ball Z (Z being the grade of this movie)

 

Dragon Ball Z: Evolution

This is the reason I work for Bitter Balcony. Masterpieces like this are the gems that I live for. Lets get on with it shall we?

This is the story of a boy who has one ball searching for little green man with the aide of a delusional martial artist and a 20-year-old P.H.D. that has a minor in small tactical weapons. The green man is searching for his balls and will kill anyone that gets in his way. I’m sure I’d be this upset if someone else had my balls, er, of the dragon and the Z variety. Sure, sure. You are thinking you’ve seen this before. The thing is you probably have since you have likely seen crap before, any crap will do.

Kenny was a dirty Nazi all along! Inglorious Basterds review (sort of)

 

Inglorious Basterds

Personal Disclaimer: I really want to create a discussion for you guys and gals about this film. I believe if you are a Tarantino nut you will think it as flawless or close to it, and if you hate his stuff, perhaps Basterds won't change your opinion. I was a huge Tarantino fan, and Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs are among the list of films that inspired me to pursue a degree and career in film.

However, I think his last couple of efforts, Kill Bill Vol.2 and Death Proof, shows signs of a steady decline. My feelings for Basterds are strongly mixed, more because I appreciate some of Quentin's cinematic themes and form, but I'm far from loving this film and found some patches that I liked here and there. Anyways, I'll avoid adding too many spoilers now, but if I do, my bad.

Clip these Wings!!! Snow Angels review

 

Snow Angels

Fractured relationships, infidelity and regret move on the opposite end of love's new promise in David Gordon Green's Snow Angels. Set in a small town where everyone knows your name, Kate Beckinsale drops her slender goth outfit from Underworld for a modest Chinese restaurant server uniform. She plays Annie, an early 30-something mom who struggles to balance her responsibilities for her daughter with the constant imposition from her separated husband Glenn, performed by Moon's Sam Rockwell(You want to know more about Mr. Rockwell and Moon, go to bitterbalcony.com.
