Joker – Review

by Matt Gearyon 13/10/2019
Joker isn’t an action packed, explosion filled, Superhero trope laden caper, replete with cheesy jokes and one liners. No, it’s a dark, gritty, in some ways brutal and disturbing cautionary tale of how society, ignored, abused and left to fester, will retaliate and lay low those who ignored it for years; the avatar of its rage and dissolution manifesting in Arthur Fleck’s Joker.

Taking the Joke from the Joker

by SeanPWallaceon 19/08/2016
It’s not exactly news, but Suicide Squad didn’t get very good reviews. Personally, I don’t see what all of the hate was about: it’s a fun, slightly odd movie that kept me entertained and made me laugh. Each of the protagonists is well cast, as is Amanda Waller and Enchantress, and the tone is slightly […]

by Callum Tyndallon 11/04/2016
The newest Suicide Squad trailer has just arrived and features plenty more action, a whole load of Joker and, interestingly, a fair amount of Batman. Perhaps most notable however is the humour content in the trailer. Given that Suicide Squad is apparently undergoing reshoots at the moment designed to up the comedy/fun element, following the […]

Batman Europa #1, or “The Comic that almost wasn’t.”

by MrCraiggyon 20/11/2015
Right off the bat (sorry), I want to say how good it feels seeing Jim Lee drawing a Batman title again; Jim is one of my favourite comic book artists and has worked alongside incredible writers on some top tier “required reading” Batman stories; including the iconic Hush. But we’re not here to talk about […]

SDCC trailer for Suicide Squad released online

by Peter Ray Allisonon 14/07/2015
For those who were lucky enough to be at San Diego Comic Con, they would have been able to see the first trailer for the forthcoming Suicide Squad.  However, Warner Brothers took pity on those who were unable to make it, and have since released the trailer online. So far, Suicide Squad looks okay.  It […]

Rememblog #3: How Batman: The Animated Series Gave Me A Hero

by Callum Tyndallon 09/04/2015
I want to start off by making it very clear that this is not some tragic tale of how I came to some sort of realisation or overcame some horrible event. I did not get through grief or alcoholism or loss by watching Batman: The Animated Series. I just gained a lifelong love of the character because of […]

Gotham – Jokes on…us?

by Daniel Delargyon 09/01/2015
Gotham has been introducing several big-names to the small screen, from a young Harvey Dent to a streetwise Selena Kyle. However, there is an iconic face who has been seemingly absent throughout the series so far – one with a particular smile which sets all on edge. Ah, but one cannot simply depict the origin […]

As many of you may know by now, Jon Beavers has been cast in FOX’s new TV series Gotham as a stand up comedian in the pilot episode of their much anticipated show. Ever since the announcement was made there has been the suggestion that this will be the actor who will become the future joker. […]
