‘Relic’ Review: A Haunted House Movie Audiences Won’t Soon Forget

Some say that time heals all wounds, but that ’ s a lie. Time doesn ’ t heal; it reshapes. As the years pass, wounds morph into new perspectives and sometimes alter into vague memories or forgetfulness altogether. However, that metamorphosis does not necessarily engender a mending. The degree of pain may fluctuate, but some wounds simply do not heal if the wound is severe enough. Japanese-Australian writer/director Natalie Erika James explores the transformational toll that time and genera...

Revisiting ‘Edward Scissorhands’, Tim Burton’s Allegorical Masterpiece About an America in Flux

Edward Scissorhands is more than a gothic fairytale. It’s more than a suburban satire. It’s a complex film about systemic societal and economic change. Writer Caroline Thompson, director Tim Burton, costume designer Colleen Atwood, and production designer Bo Welch convey timely themes of classism, diversity, and suburban vapidity (post-war Suburbia through the Reagan Era suburban revival) through the use of snow, Edward’s (Johnny Depp) peculiar, unchanging outfit, the suburban setting, and a s...

The 10 Best Michael Keaton Batman Moments

The 10 Best Michael Keaton Batman Moments The cape crusader’s appearances on the silver screen have made him a global icon. The campy serials have their place in history, but it is arguably Michael Keaton’s performance in Tim Burton’s 1989 film,  Batman  (order your copy here) , that modernized the character. Keaton wasn’t just a good Batman but also a stellar Bruce Wayne: a perfect concoction of suave and grit. A lot of people grew up with Keaton’s Batman (the same way a lot of us grew u...

Michael Keaton Will Return as Batman in Multiple DC Movies, Starting With ‘The Flash’ Solo Movie

Michael Keaton will be Batman again. Warner Bros. is planning on bringing Keaton back as the Caped Crusader in The Flash, the upcoming superhero movie based on the Flashpoint comic story. Keaton played the Dark Knight in Tim Burton’s 1989 blockbuster Batman, and reprised the role again in 1992’s Batman Returns. And while this all seems out of left field, it makes a lot of sense when you consider the plot of Flashpoint and the current state of the DC Universe on the big screen. I don’t think ...

Joel Schumacher, Director of ‘Batman Forever’, ‘The Lost Boys’, and More, Dead at 80

Joel Schumacher, the director of movies like A Time to Kill, The Lost Boys, and more, has died at the age of 80. He’s probably best known for making Batman Forever and Batman & Robin in the 1990s (and putting the Batman franchise on ice for a while in the process), but he had a long, incredibly varied, and fascinating career beyond those two films. Schumacher began his career as a costume designer before making the jump behind the camera, and when you look at his filmography, you may be surpris...
