Tommy Lee Jones despised working with Jim Carrey on Batman Forever

While I've never met the man, it wouldn't take much to sell me on the notion that working beside comedian Jim Carrey circa 1995 had the potential to be an exhausting endeavor. During that time in his career, the rubber-faced actor was notorious for being "always on," to the point where appearing beside him was considered by many to be an act of mental...

Director Joel Schumacher is often the blame, and the director wants every...

Cool Videos: Fan trailer imagines Batman and Robin if done by Tim Burton

In many ways we should be thankful to Joel Schumacher for BATMAN AND ROBIN. The late-90’s opus put a nail in the Bat’s coffin until Christopher Nolan decided to bring him back from the dead. Who knows how much sillier the movies would’ve gotten had it succeeded? It’s hard to picture that kind of hell. The movie has its ironic fans, but the movie is truly...

Update: Joel Schumacher reimagining his Batman films as a new comic series

UPDATE: Looks like this has been debunked . Everyone can breathe now. No, that headline is not a misprint: Joel Schumacher was involved with the creation of three movies in the BATMAN franchise. First, there was BATMAN FOREVER with Val Kilmer . Then we had the debacle that was BATMAN & ROBIN. After that film was critically and commercially panned, plans for the third film,...

Cool Videos: Honest Trailers tackles the comic book classic Batman & Robin!

I'll never forget seeing BATMAN & ROBIN in the theater. It was truly one of the worst movie-going experiences I've ever had. Like a sick prank, I sat and watched this once dark, cool franchise disintegrate before my eyes and walked out of the theater with a raging headache. It felt like I'd just been detained and tortured for two hours and that's not being dramatic. That's how I honestly...

To sequel or not to sequel, that is the question: Sleepy Hollow

Here's the deal: I like movies, you like movies, and sometimes we both like movies so much that we want to see the story extend beyond the final scene. And despite our mutual bemoaning of Hollywood's sequel-happy state of late, sometimes I wish someone would make a sequel to a movie I liked. Not just a direct-to-DVD piece of shite, but a fully fledged, high production value piece of...
