Straight from the mouth of the classic Adam West Caped Crusader to the mouth of Christian Bale's contemporary Dark Knight, check out my latest YouTube vid that mashes two great Batmen together, which, of course, was done to promote my brand new episode of The DVD Shelf Movie Reviews that you can also check out below.

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.

Here's a quick little run down of my awesome shout-out from director Kevin Smith and Ralph Garman on their hilarious weekly podcast, Hollywood Babble-On. Included is the full audio excerpt from towards the end of the show. Enjoy!
In this episode of The DVD Shelf Movie Reviews, we’ll take a look at the hilarious 2009 dark comedy World’s Greatest Dad starring Robin Williams and written and directed by legendary stand-up comic Bobcat Goldthwait. We’ll take a look at the film beginning with Bobcat’s career path that led him from stand-up comedy to film directing. Then, we’ll see what the film’s DVD has to offer. All this and more at your online destination where movies are celebrated, not incinerated!

I'm writing another post for this video I made and posted back in January. It was just a simplistic idea that I can't believe hadn't been done on Youtube before. It is now my highest viewed video on Youtube by...ahem...quite alot. As of this writing, the video has been seen well over 2,200 times and it just keeps going!
It's been a slow and steady climb, but just yesterday, it was given quite a generous boost by Tommy over at Bat-Blog.com, a very popular blog dedicated to all things Batman! It's an awesome feeling seeing your work being discovered randomly on Youtube and, all of a sudden, posted on other websites. Tommy wrote a very nice little piece about it and, for the first time, it's being seen in other countries as well! Wow! Thanks, Tommy, and you can visit his Bat-Blog site HERE!
To help kick off the first episode of my new show, The DVD Shelf, which features The Dark Knight, I wanted to include a little bonus video. Have you ever wanted to see the classic 1966 Batman TV show opening credits sequence in high-definition widescreen? Me too! Sadly, this classic show has never been released to DVD meaning that any copies of the sequence that have circulated on YouTube are extremely low quality. So, since remakes are all the rage these days, why not do a remake of the classic theme with an updated look and a modern twist? Enjoy!
