"The Batman" Finally Worthy of the Cape and Cowl?

It’s amazing what twelve episodes can do for a series. It worked wonders for X-Men: Evolution and now it’s doing the same for The Batman. After an almost embarrassing pilot episode and a season full of mediocre-to-average episodes, the show takes a giant leap forward in quality with the two part season finale. The episodes, […]

"Petite Princess Yucie Vol.1": FLCL for the Kids

"The Batman" Offers Sensational Season Finale

After what can only be described as a terrible opener followed by a string of episodes that ranged from mediocre to inexcusably poor, The Batman‘s first season comes to an end with “The Rubberface of Comedy (Part 1),” and “The Clayface of Tragedy (Part 2).” After basically giving up hope on the series after the […]

"Catwoman": Weak Story and Direction Buries This Cat

Catwoman is a misguided, big-budget adaptation of the comic book character that stumbles out of the litter box and tracks its own crap all over the floor. A mix of been-there done-that cliches, loud music, and an overabundance of CGI, it looks like Catwoman has reached the end of her nine lives. Patience Philips (Halle […]

"Catwoman": Not Purring but Snoring

It’s taken close to a decade, but the modern deluge of comic book movies has finally produced a superheroine vehicle in Catwoman.
