The DVD Shelf Movie Reviews: Batman The 1966 Movie

In the monumental twentieth episode of The DVD Shelf Movie Reviews, we'll celebrate the lighter side of The Dark Knight by delving deep into the 1966 Batman movie starring Adam West and Burt Ward as the Dynamic Duo.  One can't do this film justice, though, without giving full insight into the classic TV series that the film was tied in with and to fully appreciate this more comedic take on Batman and Robin, I'll also discuss the dire state of comic books at the time.  I'll then reveal some additional DVD titles that no 60's Bat-fan should be without.  We probably wouldn't have the Batman we know and love today if it wasn't for this TV show and movie, so sit back and enjoy the full (and long) story behind the phenomenon that made Batman a pop culture staple.  The DVD Shelf Movie Reviews is hosted by David Rose.

Introducing The DVD Shelf Mini Reviews!

I hope you’ve all been enjoying my first 13 episodes of The DVD Shelf Movie Reviews so far.  It’s been a blast making them, but I do realize that they tend to run a bit long.  20-30 minutes can be an eternity when it comes to sitting at your computer watching an internet show.  So, for those of you without much time to spare, welcome to The DVD Shelf Mini Reviews, where I review a movie’s DVD or Blu-Ray in just 90 seconds.  In this premiere episode, I won’t be reviewing a movie, but I will be taking 90 seconds to give a little introduction to my new series, then I’ll begin reviewing films starting with episode 2.  Don’t worry, though, because my next full-length DVD Shelf Movie Review is also on its way!

The DVD Shelf Movie Reviews: American Splendor

In this episode, we dive into the life and works of legendary comic book writer and Cleveland native Harvey Pekar with the 2003 film American Splendor starring Paul Giamatti as Pekar.  We’ll look at Harvey’s own back story and his friendship with the famously eccentric illustrator Robert Crumb that led to the creation of the American Splendor comics, the personal autobiographical stories Pekar would put into comic book form.  We’ll check out the film that perfectly captures the quirky atmosphere of the books, see what’s on the DVD, and, finally, I'll give my final recommendation. All this and more at your online destination where movies are celebrated, not incinerated!
