Batman: The Dark Knight Returns Part 1 (REVIEW)

In the 90's part of my daily after-school ritual was watching Batman: The Animated Series, so I think it’s fair to say that I have a lot of nostalgia for Batman in animated form. With that in mind, I was pretty intrigued to find out about Frank Miller’s Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, which is based on a four-issue comic book that was originally published in 1986. I’ve never read anything by Frank Miller, but I think most movie fans, like myself, are familiar with the author through Sin City and The Spirit which were also based on his comics.

Horror Headlines: Friday, April 13th, 2011

Hey it's Friday the 13th! There's a horror movie named after that so we should all be excited. Let's promise ourselves that we'll annoy everyone we work with by spouting off ridiculous info about the film series and how much we hated the remake. People love that crap.

Get excited folks! Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller have dropped the bomb that production on "Sin City: A Dame To Kill For" will begin this summer. No specific details on the plot or when the film will see the light of day but aren't you just excited that it's happening? You couldn't stand up right now even if you wanted to could you? God you're sick.

Speaking of The Rock... Dwayne "My Man Crush" Johnson has been tapped to take on the lead role of the upcoming big screen adaptation of "Lore". Based on the comic book of the same name the story will tell the tale of a man who reluctantly becomes a member of a secret order of dream boats who battle mythical beasts. The "dream boat" part I added. Don't judge.

Word around the tubes is that none other than Mr. David Cronenberg is high atop a short list of directors to take on "Catching Fire", the much anticipated sequel to "The Hunger Games". Gary Ross who directed the first installment recently parted ways with Lionsgate due to the short filming schedule so now they're on the prowl. I mean if I was looking for a guy Cronenberg wouldn't be my first choice but I don't like to judge. The Rock isn't free though? Just wondering.

This isn't very exciting news but I wanted to share it with you because it makes me happy. "Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of 'Psycho'", the movie about the making of "Psycho", seriously it is, has had its title cut down to just "Hitchcock" and begun production. Don't you feel better about the world now?

In Real People News: 

Bulldog puppies might be the cutest god damn thing on this earth so it's mind blowing that an Ohio man could shove 6 of them into a suitcase and abandon them. Well maybe not mind blowing. It is Ohio. I'll never understand that godless wasteland.

What if I told you there's a story out there about a person who was pronounced dead and then woke up 12 hours later in the morgue? What if I then told you that person was a newborn baby? Are you creeped out? What if I then told you that you could wash away all your financial debt by following 6 simple rules? Would you be interested then?
