The DVD Shelf Movie Reviews: The Green Hornet

The ongoing trend of big budget comic book movies has had its ups and downs and one major down for many fans has been the 2011 reboot of the 30s-era pulp crimefighter, The Green Hornet, starring comedic actor Seth Rogen as a much goofier Green Hornet than we’ve ever seen before.  Alongside him is Taiwanese musical superstar, Jay Chou, as his highly-skilled sidekick, Kato.  These nearly 80-year-old characters have seen their own fair share of reinterpretations- most famously, a 1966 TV series that only lasted one season and starred Van Williams and martial arts master Bruce Lee.  In this episode of The DVD Shelf Movie Reviews, I’ll look at The Green Hornet’s illustrious history, then I’ll put Seth Rogen’s controversial turn as the masked vigilante to the test and see if the film truly deserves the hate it gets.  Also included is a little bonus review of 2013’s reboot of another legendary hero, The Lone Ranger, who is actually considered to be an ancestor of The Green Hornet.

Happy Batman Day!

To commemorate the 75th anniversary of the creation of Batman, DC Comics has offically deemed July 23rd, 2014 as National Batman Day, a celebration of all things Dark Knight that includes the distribution of free Batman comic books and the kick-off to the always hotly-anticipated San Diego Comic-Con!

Batman always has been and always will be my favorite comic book character, and fictional character in general - so much so that when I first started The DVD SHELF MOVIE REVIEWS in late 2010, I saw Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight as the perfect movie to begin my web series.  The DVD Shelf has evolved quite substantially over its relatively short run and to pay tribute to The Dark Knight being my first movie review, every tenth episode of The DVD Shelf Movie Reviews has been a new review of a Batman piece.

Episode 10 was a look at Batman: Mask of the Phantasm, an amazing and stylish movie spin-off of the classic cartoon show, Batman: The Animated Series.  Then, in episode 20, I spent nearly 90 minutes gushing over the classic 1966 Batman TV series starring Adam West and Burt Ward while focusing mainly on the tie-in film that was released in the summer of 1966.  Thankfully, the series will FINALLY be released on DVD and Blu-ray in November of this year and I, for one, can't wait!  So, to celebrate National Batman Day, I've provided a simple way to access my three previous Batman-related reviews for any of you who haven't yet checked them out!  Rest assured that when episode 30 comes around, it'll be my biggest Batman review yet, but in the meantime, head to the Batcave and enjoy this celebration of the Caped Crusader as only The DVD Shelf Movie Reviews can!

  

And while you're here, make sure to check out a few of my other Batman-related videos including High-Def Make-Overs of the classic 1966 opening theme song and the 1992 animated series!
