Film Feature | 2012: The Year of the Superhero Video


This year, I’m hoping to produce a lot more video content, from montages to top 10’s. As some of you know already – or have guessed – I am a huge superhero fan, and as such my first montage is a tribute to a great year of comic book movies.

Film Review | The Dark Knight Rises

At the beginning of the year, you would be hard pressed to find a ‘most anticipated films of 2012’ list that didn’t feature The Dark Knight Rises. But Batman on film wasn’t always this popular; 1997’s Joel Schumacher directed Batman & Robin is widely regarded as one of the worst comic book movies of all time (and with good reason).

Film Watch is back! We have yet another jam packed month of films for your (our?) viewing pleasure in July, with the releases of acclaimed documentaries, a comedy with an intriguing premise, and an eagerly awaited superhero reboot.

Film Trailer | The Dark Knight Rises

During the past few months, my excitement for Avengers outweighed my anticipation for Christopher Nolan’s final Batman flick, and those of you who have seen Joss Whedon’s superhero team-up will be aware of how much that excitement was justified. But on the short list of possible films to top Avengers (my film of the year thus far), The Dark Knight Rises is at the very top. With the July 20 release date drawing ever nearer, the marketing is guaranteed to kick up a few notches, and today Warner Bros. have unveiled a third (and final?) theatrical trailer for Nolan’s conclusion to his Batman trilogy.
