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!

The DVD Shelf Foreign Flix: District B13

In this episode of The DVD Shelf Foreign Flix, France proves that it can pull off high-stakes action with the Luc Besson-produced 2004 thriller, District B13 which pits a streetwise punk and an undercover cop against a dangerous mob within the gated-off ghettos of Paris.  Starring French actor and stuntman David Belle, District B13 utilized the popular fighting discipline parkour, of which Belle is credited as one of its founders, for many of its action scenes.  Also discussed is the film’s 2009 sequel, District 13: Ultimatum, and its 2014 remake, Brick Mansions, which stars Belle and the late Paul Walker in his final completed film.
