5.0 out of 5 stars underrated, December 31, 2012
I don't generally feel inclined to leave reviews, but it seems most of the other reviewers here are unanimous regarding this book, that it has 'great art, but not-so-great a story'. I have to respectfully disagree. I think the story is as great as the art, simply of a different mold than the usual Batman story, and a very welcome, lighter (but not insubstantial) take on the Dark Knight. Very fresh, very fun, and the bookended lines are as excellent 'as ever'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Film, December 15, 2012
All hyperbole to the side, 'The Dark Knight Rises' is more than just a fitting conclusion to an amazing trilogy, but a great film in its own right. Without spoiling anything, simply put, if I hadn't seen 'Batman Begins' or 'The Dark Knight' before seeing this one, I would have gone out and bought them immediately. If I wasn't a Batman fan before seeing this one, I would be afterwards. And as a fan of Batman, and film in general, it IS a great way to send the story out.

5.0 out of 5 stars an underrated gem, June 19, 2011
This review is from: Babylon 5: The Lost Tales (DVD)
Very underrated. The scale and limitations have already been pointed out, so I'll just reference Dr. Franklin's great speech in 'Shadow Dancing' about focusing on what someone or something is rather than what it is not, rather that rattle on. Simply put, 'Lost Tales' is pure B5, with great ideas, emotions, acting and visuals. And as B5 always did, 'Lost Tales' achieves a well-earned optimism without shirking the weight of reality, which always serves to make both more inspiring, like a jewel framed in the perfect setting. My only caveat, as a fan, is that there is no mention of Ivanova, though maybe there is a reason in the B5 backfiles for this that I don't know about. Thanks for reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great, Forgotten Gem!, December 14, 2010
This review is from: The Man With A Cloak (DVD)
A fantastic classic from the real writer of 'Out of the Past', with a superb cast and atmosphere, and dialogue to linger over. Leslie Caron comes to old New York from Paris to get money for her revolutionary lover from his crusty uncle living in exile and stumbles into a murder mystery, as well as the dashing and elusive Joseph Cotton.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sublime road trip with indelible characters, February 16, 2009
This review is from: The Lucky Ones (DVD)
Amazon.com recapped the plot ably if less than enthusiastically, so I'll just jump to the praise. A truly fantastic movie! Intelligent, hilarious, touching, surprising, thoughtful, wonderfully performed, even suspensful. Superlatives do not do this movie justice because each one demands it's own exclamation when instead they are all woven together into the seemless and harmonic beauty that is this film's quiet grandeur. And don't forget it's very funny. So do yourself a great favor and see a movie with characters you will not want to leave, or leave each other. Thanks, and have a nice evening.
