    Fandango - We've Got Your Movie Tickets!


  1. Multiple choice past - wouldn't that be nice? Knew he'd been around from the beginning. Wonder if they will reboot the villain again in the next incarnation of the Batman movies?

    Maurice, Nigel, what kind of porn do you like ?, i prefer the Windows Vista Media Centre clips, the same 5 or 6 thrusts of the dick in and out of the birds bum over and over again or the same 5 or 6 squirts of spunk into the birds gob over and over again, somehow i find it easier to jerk-off to the repetition of those clips rather than watching the entire movies, perhaps because the clips essentially represent and constitute such beautifully encapsulated and perfectly modulated masturbation-aids par-excellence (as it were), where-as the complete movies can be much more eratic in their content both with regards to actual quality and type of scene on veiw, also of course another great bonus with the clips is that you never have to worry about an accursed and loathsome blokes arse suddenly coming into the shot and spoiling your wank.

  3. The Killing Joke and The Dark Knight Returns are two of my favourite Joker stories in the comics. My absolute favorite version of the Joker is in BTAS. Not to take away from Heath Ledger's legendary performance, but Mark Hamill is the Joker, as much as Kevin Conroy is Batman.

  4. i was always a fan of the awful yet entertaining... tv show in the 60's my first introduction to super heroes.

  5. not that it was awful... just hippie-batman. just like when i was younger with the christopher reeve's superman, i was like wow. now i still love it, but see it for it's flaws.
