BRILLIANT PLOT-WISE! GRANDIOSE LEVEL ANIMATED ACTION! THE FANTASTIC BLOOD BANKS SCENE WILL BLOW YOU AWAY! The story opens at Arkham Asylum, a dark, depressing insane asylum where the patients are playing...bingo? Arkham Asylum has gone from one of the scariest places in Gotham to a retirement home. The quality in inmates has slipped, too; half of them are literally drooling retards. Arkham is for 'criminally insane' not 'baseball is following me with spy cameras insane'. Things get interesting, or dumber, when one of Penguin's fellow inmates tells him about this fountain of riches he found and he's willing to share if Penguin helps him break out. Meanwhile, at Dracula, Penguin finally stumbles upon the crypt where the take was supposedly in, but it turns out that the inmate's take is, apparently, the corpse of Dracula. Batman has his first encounter with a few vampires, as the news media shows concern over all the missing persons [or "Lost Ones"] in the last few days. Dracula's intrigued by a Batman, like him. Alfred is skeptical about Bruce's claim of a vampire attack, saying that any of that vampire costume crap could have been bought at a "Halloween superstore". Bruce puts his sorta 'scientific background' to use; after all, vampirism supposedly infects blood, which Bruce gleaned from several fake medical journals. Plus, he has his dad's medical library, full of books and coincidentally .... crossbows? There is also a plot featuring Vicky Vale (Tara Strong) and Dracula wanting her to make a bride. No simple vampirism for Vicky, however, Dracula will drain her soul to reanimate his true bride Carmilla Karnstein. The mythology surrounding the meeting of these two characters goes back decades in the comics, so the idea of the costumed hero going head-to-head with the King of Vampires isn't as out there as it might sound. What is surprising is the dark nature of the film, which might end up scaring the little youngsters, but should play to adolescents and the character's older fan base brilliantly. This film rates 4 of 5 stars in my book! -- https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10152567155849429.1073742911.518209428&type=1&l=0c0db4ea1a
ANOTHER TEDDY FLIX MOVIE REVIEW: "Grown Ups 2 (2013)"
A SIMULTANEOUSLY HUMOROUS & A MORALE BOOSTER OF A FILM! SHORT YET ENTERTAINING RUN TIME! Chris Rock tells the race jokes, David Spade gets the redneck gags, Kevin James stops the film five times to do a burp sneeze fart combo. and Adam Sandler brings the muscle to the fight. The talents of Salma Hayek, Maya Rudolph and Maria Bello are ignored as the trio is downsized to "Aw... Honey..." housewife roles, in this sequel. I will however say, that as usual, ... Sandler, under his Happy Madison production company name, tries to promote family values in "Grown Up 2", and I can truly respect how the film idolizes the old principle ... "loved Ones First"! I watched this film with my 66 year old Father and we laughed 60% of the time, throughtout this films 101 min. run time. Hence, it deserves no less than a 3 star rating!
