 The giant brain worm is NOT spooky. Doogie Houser in a Gestapo uniform sticking his hand up the giant brain worm's ass, now, THAT'S spooky...

OK. Hollywood, let's see: rape and sodomize a 13-year-old girl and not only will we forgive you but we'll actually help you in your flight from justice, but say something bad about Jews in your private life and we will permanently ostracize both you AND your work, regardless of it's quality, even taking shots at you decades after you've died. Admitedly they're all jerks but it seems the priorities are off to me...

Yeah no question who's is better, Burton's.

What's happening with IFC? It's losing all it's merits as the independent channel it set out to be. It was bad enough they started interupting movies with commercials, then came the inevitable cash grab of a reality show. Now it just seems like they aren't even trying with the movies anymore & it makes me sad. It's bad enough they have "Fight Club" & "Boondock Saints" on constant loop? But all the Batman movies? They're the opposite definition of what an independent film should be.

I second wise's comment and it's really not even close.

I see wise is still banging that same old drum.  Has your continued rant about Nolan swayed anyone to your line of thinking yet?  Everyone has a Bat movie that he or she likes, the serious one, the corny Adam West version and the over the top Burton version.  Next we'll get to see him with the Justice League.  All the bases are covered.

As long as people still ask the question, people like Wise and I will have to answer.  The bait is too sweet to resist.

I like both Burton's vision and Nolan', but I like Burton's better.  Even Schumacher didn't bomb out completely with Batman Forever.  I really did like Jim Carrey's performance as The Riddler (though most of the rest of the movie is a wash).  Te less said about Batman and Robin the better.

I will definitely tune into the Superhero PBS special. I'd love to see interviews and history of my favorite superhero TV shows from my youth.

Thefakejared, IFC is unfortunately going the route of all cable channels trying to get ratings, which is whatever it takes to get 'em. TLC, MTV, SyFy, History, et cetera all have stretched the definition of what theire channel's supposed to be with reality shows and such to draw viewers in. Sadly, geek friendly G4TV is now going after cancelling AoTC and XPlay and trying for a more mainstream male audience.  

Wise, & Hobbs, Adam West has actually already done a live action Justice League. It was called Legends of the Superheroes in 1979 and was sort of a comedy/variety show featuring Adam West & Burt Ward & Frank Gorshin in their famous roles along with Flash, Hawkman, Green Lantern and others.

Search for Legends of the Superheroes on Youtube to find various clips.

Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives is the only one of the movie series I have ever seen. And the only reason I've watched it about 4 times is actress Jennifer Cooke looks fantastic in the tight jeans she is wearing.

Yeah monkeyfoot I vaguely recall actually watching this as a kid way back when. I recall my excitement as a kid more than the show itself

Why no "Person Of Interest."  If Elementary, Die Another Day, and Taken are all considered "genre" POI should definitely be in the mix.  Finch's computer should make it Genre.  Just saying.
