Batman's Movie-Sidekick Robin Is Finally a Woman (Maybe)

Filming for 2016's mega-mega-blockbuster Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice is motoring right along, preparing to destroy villains and box offices the world over. Ben Affleck is cast as the controversial Batman, of course, and Henry Cavill will reprise his role as a detrimentally uncontroversial Superman. Now,… » 10/17/14 6:10pm 10/17/14 6:10pm

10 Times When Comics And Movies Sexualized Male Superheroes

You've heard the argument that male superheroes are sexualized simply because they are often bare-chested. But a man taking off his shirt doesn't make him a sex object. It's actually rare to find examples of male superheroes who truly are sexualized the way women are in comics. Here are ten examples. » 8/28/14 2:17pm 8/28/14 2:17pm

Here's How The Lego Movie Should Have Ended

It is a scientifically proven and totally undisputed fact that The Lego Movie is the greatest movie ever made. It makes Gone With the Wind look like Freddie Got Fingered. But we're not here to debate or discuss that (because obviously it's true so what's there to talk about). But in this new video we get a look at how… » 5/02/14 2:00pm 5/02/14 2:00pm

Amateur Bat Dad Is Hilarious to Everyone Except His Family

So, on the one hand, "Bat Dad" (no relation to this more famous Bat Dad) is funny — the cadence of his Batman voice is spot-on and he regularly saves his family from their greatest foe, mundanity. On the other hand, Jesus Christ would it suck to live in a house with this guy. I think the only family member still into… » 9/21/13 1:02pm 9/21/13 1:02pm

Justin Bieber: Internet's Best Troll, or Batman's New Robin?

I'll be honest: sometime around the monkey-abandoning incident in Germany, I hopped aboard the Justin Bieber hatemobile, which is basically just an overloaded jalopy driven by a foul-tempered orangutan named #1JoostinHatrr (apes can't spell). I was convinced we were watching the very public entropy of a too-successful… » 9/14/13 11:15am 9/14/13 11:15am

Batman Cosplay Piano Proves That Danny Elfman’s Theme Was Awesome

The new, gritty Batman movies are fine, but there’s one thing that they were all sorely lacking: composer Danny Elfman’s theme music. Also, a very BDSM Catwoman suit. Oh, and batsuits with nipples, clearly an innovation born out of late 90s sartorial decadence. If you thought Sonya Belosouva’s Walking Dead rendition » 4/29/13 11:20pm 4/29/13 11:20pm

NBC Interns Sit-In for Anchors, Awkwardly Discuss Batman

These NBC interns have to find something to discuss as they sit in for a run through, but their best efforts to mull over some inoffensive happening in pop culture are thwarted by a Batman nerd, who nasally spouts opinions about the movie as a whole ("There is way too much happening inside it"), as well as Anne… » 9/03/12 11:15pm 9/03/12 11:15pm

The Shining Knights of the Aurora Movie Theater

When tragedy strikes, I stay up all night reading the news. The only way I know how to process incomprehensible events like the Dark Night Rises shooting in Aurora is by absorbing all the details, the more heart-wrenching and/or disturbing, the better. So far, the story that's stuck with me the most isn't the one… » 7/23/12 4:50pm 7/23/12 4:50pm

Violence on the Screen, Violence in Front of the Screen: Trying to…

Updates regarding last night's shooting at the Dark Knight Rises screening in Aurora, Colorado are dominating TV stations, online news outlets and Twitter feeds — and rightly so. People are injured, people are dead due to senseless violence. The 12 people shot dead and dozens of people injured were at a sold-out… » 7/20/12 11:50am 7/20/12 11:50am
