Gotham: “Pilot” Review

Penguin Begins

First in a long list of DC Comics television shows making their debut/return this fall, Gotham has arrived on FOX.  I have to be honest, I have been a little skeptical of this show since it was announced because the idea of a Batman show without the Batman seemed less than thrilling.  But after watching the pilot episode, I was shown how very wrong I was.

Photos of Full ‘Batman vs Superman’ Batmobile Possibly Leaked

The latter half of this week may give us the first on-set photo of Ben Affleck as Batman we’ve all been craving. Last night, a four-day shoot began at the Russell Industrial Center in Detroit. The exterior of this locale may be the most Gotham-appropriate building we’ve seen for a live-action adaptation since the Burton days. In fact, it looks suspiciously similar to the building in which the first Batman and Batmobile photo was taken. Since sightings of Henry Cahill on-set in the super suit have been plentiful, and such sightings have NOT occurred here, we think this week may focus on a solo Batman outing. Could it be possible that our first introduction to the new Caped Crusader takes place in a dingy, gigantic warehouse? Nearby citizens have been alerted to loud noises and the use of pyrotechnics. Might we meet the Dark Knight as he viciously deals with a certain Firefly?

Review: Guardians of the Galaxy

Weird, funny, and a perfect change of pace.

I’m hooked on a feeling: I’m in love with this movie!  Guardians of the Galaxy is the first standalone Marvel movie we have seen in a while, and boy, does it deliver.  Right from the beginning, Chris Pratt as Peter Quill, aka Star Lord, sets the funny and carefree tone that continues throughout the movie.  This is a great change of pace for the Marvel movies and superhero movies in general which tend to focus on darker themes and varying levels of brooding.

Time to Try DC Comics: Earth One

When There’s Trouble, You Know Who to Call!

Lately, I have been binge-watching one of my favorite shows from when I was kid, the original Teen Titans.  I would wake up every Saturday morning to watch all of the Kids WB cartoons, such as AnimaniacsTiny ToonsPokémonYu-Gi-Oh!, and more!  But Teen Titans took the top of my favorite-TV-shows-list for a number of years.
