Well here’s the biggie. Well at least until Friday. The Dark Knight is, by quite some margin, THE most successful Batman film both financially and critically. Well unless you count Under The Red Hood’s 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, but that’s only from 7 reviews. Great film though. The Dark knight managed to gross over $1billion in worldwide takings, the only Batman film to do so. Some would argue that it only reached that point because of the fact that one of it’s leads, Heath Ledger, died a few months before release thus creating extra hype around the film. Fact is, if the film sucked then no amount of Heath Ledger hype would have made it take even half that money. Unless it had Transformers in it. They seem to be immune to quality. Anyway, click the link for my review!!

Ever wonder why some actors choose certain roles? Usually the answer you come up with is something along the lines of “Because money, that’s why!”. What is the answer when the film is really low budget though? Obviously a big wage can’t be the reason. For the excellent Super there was the chance to work on an intelligent very well written film by cult director/writer James Gunn. So what if the screenplay is poor and the director isn’t particularly well known? Speaking of such films, here’s Tiptoes. Right, let’s see if I can get through this review without using the word “midget”.
Now here’s a rare moment for me. I’m reviewing a film that is not only not out in the US yet, but isn’t for about 3 months. Because of this I will try to keep plot details to a minimum beyond the premise. Suffice to say the butler did it for the money with the assistance of the femme fatale. Whoops.
