Batman – The Music

In 1988, Warner Brothers took a massive gamble and hired Tim Burton to bring Batman back to the big screen. What came out in 1989 was one of the biggest hits in history, and the score was surely just as responsible for its success. Brooding, dark, Gothic, majestic, booming, terrifying and one of the best […]

Batman – The Car

The Batmobile is as much as an important character as Batman himself. Get it right and you have another lead in your movie that viewers can’t wait to see. Get it wrong and you have a dead weight bringing the whole film down (for example the disgusting toy advert in Batman & Robin). For Batman, Anton […]

Batman Begins -“Beautiful Lie” Alternate Opening

One of the strongest elements of Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice is the visual style created by director Zack Snyder and cinematographer Larry Fong. That, and elements of Hans Zimmer and Junki XL’s score. With that in mind, Anton Volk has decided to edit an alternate opening to Christoper Nolan’s Batman Begins along the same […]

Sympathy For The Devil – Man Of Steel? Or Man Of Straw?

With the release of Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, everyone seems to have got their knickers over their unitards into a twist over Superman’s (Henry Cavill) “killing spree” in Metropolis at the end of Man Of Steel, referenced again in BvS‘s ground zero eye view from an appalled and angry Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck).

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Review

Imagine you have five complicated jigsaw puzzles and then threw them on the floor. Then instead of reassembling them or attempting to decipher the pieces into any sense of order, you instead decide to mash all five of them together while wielding a hammer to ensure that even the fat pieces that don’t go with […]
