Ten seasons for a television show about a super hero is a great track record to hold. Many people believed a show like Smallville might last three seasons at the most. How far can you take the concept of a high school-aged Clark Kent dealing with his new found super powers and saving his hometown from "meteor freaks?" Apparently a long way. When the show ended, fans and DC Comics weren't satisfied and an eleventh season via comic book was launched.
The Movie Pool goes AWOL for the G.I. Joe: Renegades Season One Blu-ray!
Doctor Who has been one of the most popular sci-fi franchises since 1963. Next year will be the 50th anniversary of the show. Dr. Who has been translated from TV to books, comics, audio cassetes and even a play. However, what many fans want to see is a big-budget cinematic adaptation of the iconic character. With the 50 year celebration coming up, should there be a Dr. Who film?
Throughout the previous two Batman films, Christopher Nolan has been mainly tackling two distinct plots within The Dark Knight saga: the story of Bruce Wayne, and the story of Gotham City as a whole. Overall, the story of Bruce Wayne was the bigger focus in Batman Begins, and rightfully so; since the film operated as an origin story, it made perfect sense to focus on the man who would become Batman. But for the sequel, Christopher Nolan expanded his scope a little bit, telling a sweeping story about how Joker and (to a lesser extent) Batman affect the city that is Gotham. Hell, you can make the case that The Dark Knight isn't really even the main character of his own film. The story is really Harvey Dent's. But regardless, that was four years ago. Now, The Dark Knight Rise has finally hit theaters, and geeks everywhere are finally able to see the end of this magnificent franchise. But The Dark Knight Rises is a difficult film to pull off, since director Christopher Nolan is faced with having to finish off not one, but TWO pertinent storylines: the redemption of Bruce Wayne, and the fate of Gotham City as a whole. We here at TMP have all seen the film, and I'm willing to make a bet that you have as well. And now, after over four years of anticipation, we're going to break the film down bit by bit, plot point by plot point. We have a lot of things to say about arguably one of the most anticipated films of the millenium...and not all of them are good. But enough beating around the bush...let's talk some Batman.
***WARNING: THIS ARTICLE IS VERY SPOILER HEAVY FOR NOT JUST THE DARK KNIGHT RISES, BUT FOR THE ENTIRE DARK KNIGHT TRILOGY AS A WHOLE. IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN THESE FILMS YET, DO NOT READ THIS ARTICLE. TRUST US, IT'S FOR YOUR OWN GOOD.***
The Movie Pool gets its Christmas wish: The Rocketeer on Blu-ray!
That’s right, movie geeks; it’s that time of year again. No, not Thanksgiving, or Christmas. Not winter or Awards Season either. No, it’s THAT time of year again; once more, we must move aside and give the movie theaters to all the little Twilight fans.
