Batman Forever certainly was a change-up for the franchise after the very dark turn in Batman Returns and to say it’s a 180 is putting it lightly. Although I acknowledge it’s not good, I do have an affinity for the movie due to nostalgia.
Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has announced the date and released artwork for the all four Batman films starring Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer, George Clooney, Jack Nicholson and many others. Click on the link below or image to the left to check out the features and artwork.
Dark Crimes had some potential and as a fan of these procedural murder-mysteries, this should’ve been right in my wheelhouse, but instead we get a dry and at times dull story with poor pacing; outside of Jim Carrey’s devoted performance, this is not something I could recommend.
Dumb and Dumber To lives up to its name and really, there’s nothing more to it than two characters bumbling around the country one upping the jokes with each scene. No, it’s not that good and it’s of course nowhere near as funny or memorable as the original but for what it is, I can’t say I regretted seeing it, though I doubt I’ll remember much in a month.
Although hardly the perfect comedy, The Incredible Burt Wonderstone still has plenty of laughs going for it. Steve Carell is more or less Michael Scott, and any other character he’s played in his other comedic efforts, but the supporting cast gives good performances and I for one managed to laugh more than a few times and was all around amused by the film.
Warner Brothers recently announced a few catalog titles, some from their line bought from Paramount, for September releases. I’ve put up the artwork for these as well as features included for one of the titles (Warner has not provided details on the others, however).

Mr. Popper’s Penguins is a fun movie for the entire family. Sure, the plot is nonsensical and silly, the acting by the kids is pretty bad and the jokes are easy, but I managed to laugh a few times. The Blu-ray has good video and audio transfers while there are some decent, albeit forgettable, features.
Unlike the 3D presentation, I found the 2D to be very fulfilling. The film though still does not entertain me much, and I don’t see myself ever wanting to re-watch it again. But for fans of the classic tale, or parents willing to sit through this with their little ones, sure, give it a shot. Just don’t be upset if you find yourself holding the same opinion I have.
