The Dark Knight Rises – Christopher Nolan’s amazing trilogy wrapped with this immensely satisfying conclusion featuring Batman (Christian Bale) teaming with Catwoman (Anne Hathaway) to save Gotham from Bane (Tom Hardy). If “Marvel’s The Avengers” was the popcorn summer blockbuster, this was the more sophisticated comic book movie epic. Despite the Colorado shooting tragedy undoubtedly keeping some audience members away, the film still reached #7 on the all-time highest grossing charts with $448 million. If for some reason you missed it during its theatrical run, make sure to check out easily one of the year’s best films that will no doubt get snubbed come award season.
The Odd Life of Timothy Green – I really enjoyed this family-friendly Disney film starring Jennifer Garner and Joel Edgerton. It’s an easygoing film that’s ideal for the holidays to watch while you’re wrapping gifts or just want something relaxing to watch while sipping on eggnog.
Hope Springs – Meryl Streep and Tommy Lee Jones play a married couple looking to bring back their spark with the help of a counselor.

There’s no middle ground with a film like “Cloud Atlas.” You’ll either greatly admire the ambitious undertaking to bring David Mitchell’s revered 2004 novel to the big screen or be turned off by the scene-shifting and confusing script within the first 20-minutes. I’m definitely in the latter of this endlessly frustrating effort from filmmakers trying too hard to make you see their vision as a masterpiece instead of simply making one. More

A lot of the chatter on “The Dark Knight Rises” from boards I check out is giving a lot of praise to Anne Hathaway’s performance as Selina Kyle (a.k.a. Catwoman). I wasn’t as big a fan, but she’s definitely impressed others. Sure to receive universal praise is Hot Toys’ “The Dark Knight Rises” Selina Kyle figure. They teased the 12″ collectible figure earlier this weekend.
Here’s Hot Toys’ write-up:
The collectible figure of the prominent character Catwoman/ Selina Kyle is coming soon!
The legend is coming to an end…

While I’m cranking away at the review of “The Dark Knight Rises” [to come in another half-hour or so] I figured I’d offer up this teaser image snapped by my favorite photographer in the world, my Dad, featuring the principal characters of the film – Bane, Catwoman and Batman.

From the exact opposite side of the spectrum of “Batman Begins” comes a look at the ill-fated Halle Berry take on “Catwoman.” Worst case scenario, Anne Hathaway’s take on the character in “The Dark Knight Rises” will have to settle for being the third best film version after Michelle Pfeiffer (“People Like Us“) excellent turn in “Batman Returns” and Lee Merriweather in the 1966 “Batman.” It most assuredly won’t be the worst. But now, let’s look at a very dark blemish on the cinematic history of The Dark Knight.
Let me get this out the way real quick – Halle Berry in a skimpy leather outfit = a very good thing. Halle Berry in a skimpy leather outfit in the “Catwoman” movie = a mind-numbingly bad thing. More

Sideshow Collectibles sent off a teaser image of Batman’s most eco-friendly villain Poison Ivy. Not sure what line it’s from, but from the teaser alone, it looks pretty well done. I’ll assume we’ll get full shots at San Diego Comic Con, which kicks off next week.
Ivy’s an interesting choice since as far as I’ve heard [and I've tried to keep my knowledge as spoiler-free as possible] she’s not showing up in “The Dark Knight Rises.” Course Sideshow could have a Catwoman figure waiting for SDCC as well.
