The Geek Chorus #6: Why Batman Must Never Kill

This is an issue that's been stewing in my head for sometime. It's was almost brought to fruition by that trailer for that horrible Batman fan film Suffocator of Sins, but the internet more than did my job for me on pointing out what a blight on humanity that was. I thought perhaps I had worried over nothing. Perhaps everyone already knew what I had to say and there was really no need to add my voice to the pile. But recently I met someone. Very briefly, we never got as far as exchanging names. He had just come from seeing The Dark Knight Rises at the theater where I work, and we were discussing the various Robins from the comics. To my shock, he cited Jason Todd of all people as his favorite Robin.

Movie Review: God Bless America

Today's film poses me an interesting dilemma to which I'm not sure I have an answer: To what extent is indulgence and emotional catharsis in film an good thing?

Movie Madhouse: Taken 2

Back for a pointless, ever-so-slightly xenophobic sequel, Liam Neeson is...the Taken guy.

Movie Madhouse: Dredd & Looper

Dystopian futures, badass gunmen, and heaps of ultraviolence. That's my kinda weekend at the movies.
