“The things I do “” I do them because I like them. Because I want to.”
Directed by Joel Schumacher (of The Lost Boys, Batman Forever, and The Phantom of the Opera) and written by Andrew Kevin Walker (of Se7en, Sleepy Hollow, and The Wolfman), 1999’s 8MM is a crime thriller about one man’s obsessive search for the truth about a young woman’s disappearance.
Nicolas Cage (Leaving Las Vegas, Mandy) stars as Tom Welles, a private investigator contacted by an attorney (Anthony Heald of The Silence of the Lambs) for a wealthy widow, Mrs. Christian (Myra Carter). While clearing out her late husband’s safe, Mrs. Christian discovered an 8mm home movie “” one that appears to depict a real murder, but she needs to know for certain.
Most people know that when it comes to Batman & Robin—the Joel Schumacher-directed fourth movie in the ’90s run of Batman movies that began with Tim Burton’s Batman and Batman Returns which effectively murdered the Batman movie franchise until Christopher Nolan’s reboot began in 2005 with Batman Begins—everything is wrong. It’s a disaster of a movie still talked about to this day because of how bad it is.
But that didn’t stop popular YouTube channel CinemaSins, known for their “Everything Wrong With…” series of videos, from pointing out all of the flaws with Batman & Robin. The video is a record breaker, becoming the lengthiest movie sins video to date at almost 20 minutes, and the one with the most sins to date (a record not likely to fall any time soon).
You can see a rundown of everything wrong with Batman & Robin below.
House Of Cards: Season One Netflix
Directed by David Fincher, James Foley, Joel Schumacher, Charles McDougall, Carl Franklin, Carl Franklin
Starring Kevin Spacey, Robin Wright, Kate Mara, Corey Stoll, Michael Kelly, Sakina Jaffrey, Kristen Connolly, Michael Gill, Soledad O’Brien
Originally Released: February 1, 2013
Although Netflix had already taken a step into original series with Lilyhammer, it is with House of Cards that they have positioned a deep (though safe, in my mind) gamble in the belief that streaming is not just the way of the future, that it is already here. And that their customer base is already aware of this. And who among our audience doesn’t agree with this?
I dare you to defy my call on this, because seriously – I’ve lost count of the amount of conversations with fellow geeks that have spoken of the hours of sleepless nights they’ve self-induced to finish a season of Doctor Who or Star Trek or The Office or The IT Crowd, or a franchise of movies. Netflix knows that their fans and followers soak up an entire season in a day or maybe two. Who the hell needs sleep anyway?
Few characters have inspired as many entertaining and visually-inspired fan films as Batman. Over the years the Caped Crusader has starred in several labor of love short films financed and created by longtime admirers of the classic DC Comics superhero including Sandy Collora’s Dead End (which pitted Batman against the Joker – played by the late Andrew Koenig – as well as Aliens and Predators) and World’s Finest (Batman teams with Superman to battle Lex Luthor); Jeffery Scheetz’s CGI-animated New Times (featuring the voices of Adam West and Mark Hamill); and John Fiorella’s Robin-centric Grayson.
The latest, and one of the best, Batman fan film to hit the web is Batman: Death Wish, and like the best short features of the pack this one has an interesting hook. You can watch the 12-minute film here below.
