While Damian Wayne struggles to cope with Batman’s no-killing rule, he soon starts to believe that his destiny lies within a secret society known as, The Court of Owls.

Batman vs Robin”

Reviewed by Eric Jones

I really love these DC Universe animated movies. They excel for me in telling some of the top DC story-lines without the viewer having to invest in years of comic mythology to understand them. Recently they have taken an approach similar to the Marvel Cinematic Universe and have began adapting stories from their New 52 era. Batman vs Robin, is the 4th film in this new continuity and sequel to the film Son of Batman.

Every Bond Film Reviewed in One Sentence

A great post summarizing the Bond films. Had to share this one.

FILM GRIMOIRE

My partner is the biggest James Bond fan I have ever known in my entire life. He has seen all of the films (except for Die Another Day and the Daniel Craig era ones) probably about one hundred times each. He’s recently started another Bond marathon, and I somehow came up with the idea of reviewing/commenting on each and every Bond film in one sentence each. Is that even possible to accomplish? Here goes!

Casino Royale(1967)
This film is ridiculously stupid and some may say it’s unwatchable, but I thought it was thoroughly amazing because given the constraints on the production and all the crazy shiz that went on behind the scenes, what has resulted is the weirdest and most subversive Bond film out of all of them.

Dr No (1962)
Not a lot of people like Dr No, but I do because the story is minimal enough…

Top Ten Films That Should Have Won Oscars

A great post that I pretty much agree with through and through.

Confessions From A Geek Mind

As this is Oscar weekend, it was only fair that The Geek does a top ten special to celebrate the occasion.  But this is no ordinary top ten list.  This is a top ten list of films that should have won Oscars.  The reason is self-explanatory.  The films that have won Oscars, has the impact lasted?  Yes and no and better films have been overlooked.

So here is my list of films that should have won Oscars and to make it a little bit challenging, the film had to be nominated for best picture in the same year as the winner.

Hit the jump to find out which film made the list.

Eric has already contributed a couple of fantastic posts to The Den and this will be his first full fledged review for me. It is of the latest DCUanimated film, “Justice League: Throne Of Atlantis.”

Thank you, Eric, once again, for helping me out with content and for being patient and kind enough to submit a very cool write up!

Blindspot 2015: THX 1138 (1971)

A fantastic review of THX-1138 from Anna at Film Grimoire. I think that fans and even detractors of George Lucas should see this at least once.

FILM GRIMOIRE

thx_1138The feature directorial debut of science fiction aficionado George Lucas, THX 1138 (1971) is an Orwellian-style adventure. In a mysterious and unnamed future dystopian society, the population is controlled by drugs and invididuals are forbidden from feeling emotions. Worker THX 1138 (Robert Duvall) lives with his roommate LUH 3417 (Maggie McOmie). The two begin to rebel against their rigid society, putting them both at extreme risk. Do they choose to escape? Or do they choose to conform?

I am really not a fan of Robert Duvall, as his performance in The Handmaid’s Tale (1990) has scarred me for life. However in his portrayal of THX 1138 he does elicit a sufficiently sympathetic response from the viewer, ensuring that a connection is made. You do really barrack for THX as he attempts to figure out his life and position within society, going to extreme lengths in order to do so. Maggie…
