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 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!

And don't forget to hit the HD button on the video player! (You’ll need it)

The DVD Shelf Movie Reviews: Christopher Nolan's Following

In this episode, we’ll be taking a look at the very first film from director Christopher Nolan, Following – a black and white thriller that set the stage for his later hit films including Memento, The Dark Knight, and Inception.  And if this episode seems a little bizarre, don’t adjust your monitors - I’ve just barrowed some of Nolan’s signature time manipulation tricks to help tell his story.  The DVD Shelf Movie Reviews is hosted by David Rose.  All this and more at your online destination where movies are celebrated, not incinerated!

The DVD Shelf Movie Reviews: Batman - Mask of the Phantasm

It’s episode 10 of The DVD Shelf Movie Reviews!  Back in episode 1, we took a look at the 2008 blockbuster, The Dark Knight, so we’ll dip back into the Batman discs with this classic cinematic spin-off of Batman: The Animated Series.  Batman: Mask of the Phantasm weaves an action-packed mystery story around Batman, Joker, and a ghostly crime boss killer running amok in Gotham City.  We’ll look at the film plus get a little inside info on Batman: The Animated Series, the beloved cartoon show that inspired this film. The DVD Shelf Movie Reviews is hosted by David A. Rose.  All this and more at your online destination where movies are celebrated, not incinerated!
