Who's Your Batman?

Well, it's been 25 years since Tim Burton's Batman hit the big screen (1989). To honor that anniversary, AMC is showcasing a weekend of the Caped Crusader. You can even rank which movie made the biggest impression.

So which version of the Dark Knight do you prefer:  Keaton or Clooney? Val or Bale? I suppose I should include the West version as well. He was in a made-for-TV Batman movie in addition to all that time doing the campy serial.

So make your selection on the sidebar.  And be sure to watch "The Dark Knight" tomorrow on AMC.

The end of the world?

Well, it looks like 12/21/2012 has come and gone and the world is still spinning.

Perhaps the end of the world has been postponed until 2018.  Ya think?

Well, at least we'll have something to look forward to before Judgement day. It looks like Arnold Schwarzenegger is on board for Terminator 5 and 6. And Megan Ellison (Zero Dark Thirty) and David Ellison ( Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol) are behind the film. They own the rights. They have Arnold. Now all they need is a director. But the clock runs out on 2019 when the rights revert back to James Cameron. Think they can breath life back into a gasping franchise before the next "end of the world" clock runs out?

The Dark Knight Rises Trailer

Well, the latest Dark Knight movie made its opening.

And the Dark Knight Rises is now available on DVD/Blu-ray media, just in time for the holiday season.

After watching the DVD several times I went back and found the Nokia trailer on my Facebook stream from earlier in the year.  It's amazing how rearranging the timeline scenes can give you a different expectation for the movie.

The Prisoner 2009


The Prisoner is coming to AMC in November of 2009.

With Ian McKellan as Number 2 no less.

I wonder if they will hold to the original premise for membership in The Village or if they will create a new reason for bringing in the prisoner?

While The Prisoner hit the small screen in the late 60's, I didn't know about it until I was well entrenched at the Institute. I was first introduced to The Prisoner while walking down the Infinite Corridor after a class. Rover was bouncing across the screen and I was simply mesmerized.

Images from Iran

Raw video footage from Iran of the crackdown on the protesters. The establishment makes good on its promise. Not for the faint of heart.

Cleveland Marathon 2009 Completed

Finished the Cleveland Marathon last week in 3 hours 51 min and 26 seconds (adjusted time, of course).

An improvement over last year's 3 hours 56 min and 46 seconds.

We'll see what the summer's training program can do to reduce the time
