Re: BAT 77 - One Bullet Too Many (Batman #217)

I think that with the end of the Adam West series in '68, and the sales of the Batman books taking a major hit from the high point of being the #1 selling character in '66 (even over Superman for the first time ever, and that wouldn't happen again until '89, and wouldn't become common until I think,...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES podcast #67: "Ice Spy": Frozen turkey

Wallach is probably my least favorite Freeze, but this scene is worth whatever poor plot and bad accent I have to put up with to see it: Thanks for posting that. One of Adam West's best performances! Hilarious. I don't remember much else from this episode except Glacia in her skating costume, the s...

Re: Batman Returns 25

I'm open to multiple interpretations of Batman and "dark" can be a good fit for him, but Burton is a self-indulgent weirdo who likes to throw in a lot of oddball garbage to all his films for no reason other than to puff up proudly and proclaim, "Look how weird I am." He's like a "Goth" teen who jus...

Re: Adam has died

I hate to bring it up, but what about the Two-Face cartoon with William Shatner?

If it isn't finished (I mean if Adam West didn't get done doing his lines,) then I think that they should shelve the movie, out of respect for Mr. West.

Rest In Peace, Mr. West.

Re: Batman & Bill Documentary

Just saw the documentary Sunday night on HULU, and it was outstanding!! To this day, when I think of who created Batman, I think of Bill Finger first, and barely acknowledge Bob Kane. Kane was pure scum, to not even help Mr. Finger out with all the money Batman made him, to say nothing of how he rip...

Re: 1966 Batman review Spoiler Free. Wingert great.

I just saw it here in the SW US (7:30 PM) show. The only bad thing was that at my viewing, there was Kevin Smith talking about the movie to start, and it was fine, but I wished that they would just get to the movie. And then, to make things worse, the movie skipped the first 6-8 minutes of the movie...

Re: TV’s ‘Batman’ Adam West reaches out to Jacob Hall’s family on social media

I wasn't sure because the situation that happened isn't "G" rated or "PG" rated, but I thought in the spirit of what Adam West did, it should be considered an exception.

I hope that the mods approve this thread, because it shows Adam West is a fine human being.

Re: Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders in Theatres

Just bought a ticket, and I'll see it with the 7:30 PM show where I live at. This will hopefully wash the stench of the mediocre Batman vs. Superman movie that I saw back in March.

Re: Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders in Theatres

I just found out that the movie will play where I live at, so I'll pick up a ticket for it, probably the middle showing--I have stuff to do during the early show, and I'm at that age now where I want to sleep during the late show.

Just to be fair, we need a Superman day too!!
