Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker Nostalgiaview
Welcome to Nostalgiaviews, the only program where my childhood comes to bite me back in the ass.
About a month ago, I did a television review of the introductory episode to Batman Beyond, describing the show to be pretty good though not as good as the show it spun off from, "Batman The Animated Series." I also described in that review that there was a direct-to-video movie on the show and I had expressed interest before to look at it. Well, just my luck, it turned out the Youtube Channel BehindTheLot was posting the movie online on their channel. So I played the patience game and waited until the entire movie was up on their page to see it in it's completion. So, just to let you all know, this Review wouldn't have been done without BeyondTheLot, thanks guys. If you like their videos, subscribe to them and see more Batman-related material.
With that said, let's review "Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker."
In the far off future, Gotham City has become Neo-Gotham, Bruce
The Great Gatsby Review - 500 Word Limit
Directed by Baz Luhrmann ("Moulin Rouge!") on a budget of $127 million with distribution from Warner Bros., "The Great Gatsby" is the fifth theatrical adaptation of the 1922 F. Scott Fitzgerald novel of the same name. Originally, the movie's release was planned for Winter of 2012 to coincide with Oscar Season, but it's release was delayed for summer to convert the movie into 3D and to draw in the summer crowd to make back the cost of this conversion. Judging from Luhrmann's track record of going overboard on visual frenetic imagery and the wild parties that were thrown back in the Roaring 20s, you'd think this could be a perfect marriage of the two elements.
The year is 1922, Nick Carraway (Toby McGuire) is a bonds salesman on Wall Street living in run-down servant quarters when he is invited over to his neighbor's fancy mansion for a party held by the mysterious, yet charming Jay Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio). He is surprised to learn that Gatsby use to romance Nick's cousi
42 Review - 500 Words Limit
Directed by Brian Helgeland ("A Knight's Tale") on a budget of $40 million with distribution through Warner Bros. Pictures; "42" is the feel-good biopic about famed African-American major league baseball player Jackie Robinson and his break into the major leagues of baseball and his trials to overcome racism. Upon the movie's opening weekend, it broke records with $27.3 million on opening weekend, a record-breaking number in Baseball movie history. What is it about this movie that everyone loved that they had to see it?
In 1945, MLB Executive Wesley Branch Rickey (Harrison Ford), makes the scandalous decision to break the race barrier and allow an African-American to play baseball with the Brooklyn Dodgers. Looking through a roster of players, he chooses Kansas City Monarchs shortstop Jackie Robinson (Chadwick Boseman), a temperamental yet good-natured black man with a love for Baseball. He agrees to play for the Montreal Royals, but must promise to keep his cool despite
Star Wars Ep. II Attack of the Clones Nview Part 3
A long while ago, sitting in a courtroom far, far away…
Episode II Part III
WHAT EXACTLY WAS THE CAUSE OF ALL THIS SH*T? I FORGET…
Alec has come to a problematic obstacle, the court has refused a plea bargain and the evidence mounted against Alec could potentially ruin him as well as devastate all online criticizing in general.
Despite assistance from his fellow critics in the criticizing community, Alec is alone and his lawyer was unable to find evidence to defend his case of free speech to criticize Star Wars, while ironically criticizing "Attack of the Clones."
Regardless, this hasn't hindered's Alec's quest to analyze the second Star Wars prequel, where he has found a split film with two shorelines, one, while flawed, is far more interesting, the other, much more flawed and really boring with moronic characters. If Alec is lucky, he may have a chance to finish his review and get himself acquitted…
Prosecutor: "Well, since the de
Scary Movie V Review - 500 Words Limit
Released in 2013 under the direction of Malcolm D. Lee ("Undercover Brother") on a budget of $20 million with distribution from The Weinstein Company; "Scary Movie V" is the long-delayed sequel to the once-popular "Scary Movie" comedy franchise.
It's often rare to find movies that become acceptable to hate in the general public, whereas most people will cry foul and put themselves on the front line to defend the movie even if it's not all that great (see "The Phantom Menace"). Then there are movies that become socially cool to hate and any defenders are just ignored or laughed at for even trying to (see "Twilight"). That's where we come to the Scary Movie franchise, a series of parody films mocking whatever movies are popular, generally horror films as the title suggests. From "Scream" and "I Know What You Did Last Summer" to movies like "The Haunting," "Signs," "Saw" and "War of the Worlds."

Finally! A man's show I can watch without feeling guilty for even watching one episode!
Many of you may recall a few months back, I reviewed an episode of the popular TV show "My Little Pony Friendship is Magic" and gave it a fair critique that wasn't as scathing as I originally thought on the show. But I still chose to ignore it and go on my daily life of thinking about the craft of cinema and other unimportant crap. But since January, I really wanted to tackle another show from my youth that I could analyze and thanks to Netflix, i finally can.
Before we touch on the show, let's look at the history leading up to this short-lived show.
The year was 1992, Tim Burton had reinvented what used to be a corny and campy Batman with his dark and complex 19
BTC - The Passion of The Christ
"As for the one who is weak in faith, welcome him, but not to quarrel over opinions."
Released in 2004 under the direction of Mel Gibson on a budget of $30 million with distribution through Newmarket Films; "The Passion of the Christ" is a dramatic adaptation of the famous death of the religious figure, Jesus (which in this review, I will go to pronounce as 'Hey Zeus') H. Christ. Whether you believe in the stories passed around from roving traders to parts of the word passed down through generations by monks in Latin who may have changed some of the text for their on reasons before eventually making mass print and being sold all around the world, the death of Jesus of Nazareth is by far the most brutal death ever recorded in history, said death leading to what has become the largest religious group in the world today. So, of course, it's no surprise that Hollywood has made adaptations of Christ's Crucifixion: 1959's "Ben-Hur" with Claude Heater, 1965's

Let's talk about one of the most prevailing and long-lasting genres of film that has stood the test of time and evolved over the 100 years the technology of film-making became available: Comedy. From the early days of early film-making from the minds of the Lumiere Brothers and Thomas Edison to the comic genius of Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin in the silent era to the screwball comedies of the Marx Brothers. But with every genre of comedy, there are subgenres and in this case, the genre has brought forth the romantic comedy ("When Harry Met Sally..."), black comedy ("Meet the Feebles"), parody films ("Monty Python's Life of Brian"), sex comedy ("Porky's") and the teen comedy genre ("Revenge of the Ner
IowaIf you visit Iowa,
you'll call her fields empty,
but she wasn't born that way.
A part of her was carved out
when she was ripped between Virginia
and the purple mountains of New Mexico.
Her gold hair, she tore it out when she realized
it didn't make her a princess.
She laid her locks strung along every road
leading somewhere else.
White hairs on her cheeks
are scars from winter.
Her hair darkens with the dampness
of summer rains.
The storms are never silent,
but neither is life when there's a tear
in your childhood where
a parent ought to be.
I've been flooded by Iowa's sorrow.
The only way I can distract her from her own voided landscape
is if I hate myself harder than she cries.
She just wants to fly
and I want to bus or train,
not because I fear death, but because
I want to take living slow.
It's the only way I ever feel.
From the air it's hard to watch Earth's hips move.
But Earth can't compare to the country.
That's my girl.
Full grown even when harvesting season's j
