  • Batman Returns 1992

    ★★★★ Rewatched 19 Dec, 2014

    Tim Burton pulls out all the stops in quite possibly his most Burton-esque film to date. Dark, manic and rich with detail, Batman Returns is the superb follow up to Burton’s original Batman.

It's tense, fast paced and full to the brim with enough action and bullets to take down a small country. It has…

Kick-Ass follows the story of Dave Lizewski who's had enough of the bullies and takes matters into his own hands - becoming the wet suit clad hero Kick-Ass. The story is detailed with some excellent links to a huge number of films and comics. We are introduced to a host of great characters…
