Video Page for ‘The Dark Knight’
Empress Eve   |  @   |  

The Dark KnightThe official Web site for The Dark Knight has been updated to include a video page.

As of now, the video page contains a “Why So Serious?” poster, which you can see here at right (click for large view). There’s also links to videos that apparently don’t exist, because clicking on the links yields error messages. If you click on the links to the Windows Media files, the URL name has “trailer 2” in it (the QuickTime links have “TRL2” in their file names). So, perhaps, a second trailer is indeed what we’ll get at these links eventually. [UPDATE 1/5/08: The links actually work now and they are for the theatrical trailer released last month.]

But you never know with the viral marketing campaign for this Christopher Nolan sequel to Batman Begins, which sees the return of Christian Bale behind the cowl, with Health Ledger as The Joker.

Comic Review: Scorn #2

Scorn #2Scorn #2
Written & Created by Kevin Moyers
Art by Philipp Neundorf
Septagon Studios
Release Date: August 25, 2007
Cover price: $1.75

What we’ve got here is a tough little nut to crack, at least from my viewpoint. Behind the curtain time; sometimes it’s hard to review things that come across my proverbial desk. Some books you read, and it’s easy to say “This is good” or “This is bad.” Not so much with this one. There’s some serious subject matter going on here and a very unique art style, which brings up some good points and some bad points. I’ll get to that in a minute.

First a bit of recap: Scorn comes to us from Septagon Studios, and tells the tale of Michael, a guy who’s had a rough time of it his entire life. His mother is killed at a young age, he becomes a bit of an outcast until he meets his best friend. Unfortunately, his friend is killed in issue 1 by a wanna-be gangster by the name of Torres, which sends Michael into a spiral of violence and murder. He has given himself over to revenge and his quest continues in this issue as Michael takes a step closer to Torres while finding out some info about his almost girlfriend. There’s violence, there’s sex, and there’s murder.

DVD Review: Futurama: Bender’s Big Score
MrOodles   |  

Bender's Big ScoreFuturama: Bender’s Big Score
Directed by Dwayne Carey-Hill
Starring Billy West, John DiMaggio, Katey Sagal
20th Century Fox Home Entertainment
Release date: Nov. 27, 2007

The domination of the DVD allows cancelled television series to find new life on silvery discs. DVDs also escalated the shameless pandering to fans with feature-length renditions of their favorite cancelled faire. Sure, the fan bases of said franchises weren’t strong enough to keep the show on the air, but that doesn’t mean their money is no good. This is America for crying out loud!

Because this is America, we, the fans, are able to have countless, straight-to-DVD sequels to Dukes of Hazard and American Pie. We can watch entire seasons of Night Rider and MacGyver even though the first episodes of those series may predate our birth. And, when our beloved Futurama or Gumbel2Gumbel gets cancelled, we can whine and scream and purchase DVDs until our voices are heard.

And our voices heard about it, they have!

Confusing syntax aside, the good folks at Fox gave Matt Groening and company the opportunity to release a Futurama movie and shamelessly pander to dozens of fans. And pander they did! Anyone with access to two volumes of their roommate’s Futurama DVDs will find Bender’s Big Score incredibly rewarding. Everyone else should read the rest of this review and then forget they ever heard of it.

DVD Review: The Kingdom
Tony D, Hardcore Film Maniac   |  

The Kingdom DVDThe Kingdom
Directed by Peter Berg
Starring Jamie Foxx, Chris Cooper, Jennifer Garner
Universal Studios Home Entertainment
Available Dec. 23, 2007

The Kingdom is this year’s Miami Vice. What does that mean, you ask? Well, one, only the smartest people and the ones who pay close attention will REALLY know what’s going on. Secondly, it’s really pretty. And third, Michael Mann is the producer. I’m not one to criticize Mann unless the movie is Ali and Manhunter. I don’t even like Heat as much as most. But I will admit that when Mann wants to have fun, he does have fun. Unlike that other Michael skid-mark that thinks that robots sticking their fists up each other’s corn-shooters would be “fun,” Michael Mann and director Peter Berg shoot a film that is divided into two-halves — the first being a crime scene and the second being a nonstop action-thriller.

I kinda figured out something while watching this for the second time since I first saw it in theaters. If the film looks good, sounds good, and tastes good, then it’s good. These guys in Hollywood blew their wad on this film, and it shows. Again, unlike that other Michael skid-mark, who would pay hundreds of thousands of dollars just to show cars transforming into robots, this duo uses money to develop a setting that works, an environment that doesn’t look safe, and a badass action sequence that would ooze the eyes out of any action fanboy junkie.

After a bombing in a little town in Saudi Arabia, FBI Secret Agent Fleury (Jamie Foxx), Agent Sykes (Chris Cooper), Agent Mayes (Jennifer Garner), and Agent Leavitt (Jason Bateman) take a secret five-day trip to where the bombing took place so they can find the one who started it and get justice for the lives that were taken. Because America is so evil, Saudi officials don’t welcome these Americans and refuse to cooperate. They keep all of the secrets to themselves and don’t tell Fleury and his gang any information as to where they can find the men. The only one that has the cajones to help them is Colonel Al Ghazi (Ashraf Barhom).

‘Semi-Pro’ Trailers
Empress Eve   |  @   |  

Semi-ProAn age-restricted trailer for New Line Cinema’s upcoming comedy Semi-Pro is now online at the movie’s official site.

To gain access to the R-rated trailer, you’ll have to enter your full name, date of birth, and zip code. If you can get in, I highly recommend you watch it, since it’s funny as hell. While the all-ages trailer allows you to get a feel for the movie (watch it here after the jump), it definitely suffers from flat-joke syndrome much like all those censored Superbad clips.

Semi-Pro, which stars Will Ferrell and Woody Harrelson, hits theaters on February 29, 2007. Synopsis for the movie is here after the jump.

DVD Review: Underdog
Smed   |  

Underdog DVDUnderdog
Directed by Frederik Du Chau
Starring Jason Lee, Peter Dinklage, Amy Adams
Buena Vista Home Entertainment
Available Dec. 18, 2007

Let’s take inventory:

Beloved TV show – check.
Hot breakout actor – check.
Memorable character actors – check.
A chance to show off cool CGI effects – check.
Disney – check.

It can’t miss, right?

Not so fast, my friends.

This summer, a live-action movie version of Underdog was released, and now it’s on DVD. For those of us who fondly remember the cartoon series, it’s best to stay away from it if you want to preserve your fond memories.

Jason Lee (from TV’s My Name Is Earl) stars as the voice of Underdog and Shoeshine Boy as he gains superpowers and fights the evil Simon Barsinister (Peter Dinklage) and Cad (Patrick Warbruton) to save Sweet Polly Purebread (the voice of Amy Adams).
