10 Things I learned about Batman from watching “Gotham”

10 Things I learned about Batman from watching “Gotham”

Gotham-posters-featured-image

I just watched a sneak preview of Fox’s “Gotham.” It takes place while Bruce Wayne was just a

kid. Here’s a lot of background I learned about the characters’ history.

  1. While The Penguin always liked to eat fish, he never like anchovy pizza.
  2. Cat Woman was more of a dog person.
  3. Alfred was into Cosplay.
  4. The Joker was in a UCB harold called “The Fish Mooneys.”
  5. Robin’s future parents met on Grinder.
  6. The Riddler amassed 6 NPR Weekend Edition lapel pins by the age of 25. Two of which he earned.
  7. ‘The Usher,’ was going to be a super villain, until he found God and became a Promise Keeper.
  8. Bruce Wayne still has a VHS copy of Kevin Smith’s “Jersey Girl” that he took out from the Gotham City Blockbuster.
  9. Gotham City’s slogan is “Still less crime than New York and more sun than Seattle.”
  10. Poison Ivy thought it was spelled “Bat-man” for the longest time.

The Fantastic 4 Marvel Won’t let You to See

FILM THREAT 12 COVERUPDATE: /Film just announced a new “Family friendly” version is in the works!

The Fantastic 4 (1994) was hidden. Listen to the inside scoop on the infamous Roger Corman “Fantastic 4.” It was a movie no one was supposed to see. The prints were burned. Who leaked it? Why would a company want to make a movie just to shelve it?

Chris Gore was the editor of “Film Threat” magazine. He did a cover story about the production – not knowing the film was doomed. DOOMED! Chris give his insight on this blockbuster bootleg. Everything you ever wanted (or not wanted) to know about the early ’90s feature film. Gore is a movie/comic book nut. So he goes off on fun tangents about all things nerdy. Luckily for us, being nerdy is in now.

I know Chris Gore was on before talking about The Fantastic 4 movie, but I wanted him to get into more details. So to my brother who called me out on having Chris Gore talk about the movie twice, lean back and learn more.

#Podcrawl “Batman & Robin” & Nicko

#Podcrawl “Batman & Robin” & Nicko

Bad Film Club’s Nicko joins me in reviewing “Batman & Robin.” It’s another #Podcrawl and this time we get stuck with the worst of the worst. This film is the fourth in the line of Batman movies that fans went to because they thought they had no choice.

It’s out of hand. All I know is that I couldn’t stop playing with my cats. It’s the most unprofessional episode ever. Ever. Totes.

If you want to be a completist, Check out the other shows involved in Podcrawl!

Ben Affleck Bats Man Away From Film Credit

Ben Affleck Bats Man Away From Film Credit

Ben AffleckNot everyone is happy with Ben Affleck (Batman). An extra from the film “Argo” is pissed at Ben Affleck, and he can’t be silenced (Ok, he was when he had no lines… but that’s not the point here.  Tells Extra “Argo F**k Yourself”

Anthony Terracciano was a featured extra in Ben Affleck’s Oscar-winning movie, “Argo” and did not get any credit. So he’s going after Batman himself, Ben Affleck. Listen to an exclusive interview with the actor/filmmaker/activist. Anthony has gone to Kickstarter to finance a doc about it and gave us an exclusive.

An extra from  “Argo” wants his name listed on IMDB.

Do extras deserve credit and pay based on how long they are on camera? Is making a documentary really the best way to handle this? How many more times do I need to say Ben Affleck for the SEO?

Razzies Founder Speaks Out

Razzies Founder Speaks Out

The Razzies , the Oscars for bad films, is under some heat. Gawker recently accused the group for only picking big named movies to get publicity. Others accused them of picking winners based on if the star of the film will come on or not (that was me privately to my friends).

But founder and Head Raspberry John Wilson shoots down those vicious rumors.
He does admit that he was approached by a publicist to rig the votes so the client would win. Hear the shocking response. John admits to swaying the voters by letting them know that the celeb will show if he/she wins. But he would never just fixed the votes. No hanging Chads here.

The Razzies have been getting some back lash, but let’s put in perspective, it’s a competition for the worst movie.

Do you think Adam Sandler should show up to the Razzies? If YES then press “Like” below. Or tweet your opinion.

 

Listen to older shows.
Dan Kois talks his obsession with the Razzies.

Last year I interviewed the Razzies founder John Wilson about the history of the awards.
