Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders

In a fairly genius move by Warner Bros to appeal to the nostalgia crowd, i.e. my generation, Adam West, Burt Ward, and Julie Newmar return to voice their respective characters in the new animated film Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders. My only question is why didn't anybody think of this sooner?!?

The trailer is super, silly fun, and looks to capture the campy feel of the original 60's TV series. The only thing that would have made this better is if the voice talents of Burgess Meredith, Cesar Romero, and Frank Gorshin were included, but unfortunately they have all since passed on. Anyway, here's the official trailer.

Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders will be released digitally on October 11th, and hits Blu-Ray on November 1st.

Transformers: The Movie 30th Anniversary

Thirty years ago today, Transformers: The Movie came out. And little did I know at the time, it was a ploy by Hasbro to get little kids to get their parents to buy a new line of toys. If the movie came out today, I'd probably complain that it essentially obliterated all the characters I knew and replaced them with new ones that I had no attachment to. But the 11 year old me just accepted it, moved on, and proceeded to collect the new toys.

Looking back, I can see that the movie isn't that great. There's animation errors, the plot is razor thin, old characters were tossed aside to make room for new ones, but I don't care. I still see it through a child's eyes and I love every cheesy minute of it.

While everyone remembers "The Touch" as the main song of the film, my favorite is "Dare," and it continues to be on my workout and running playlists for its inspirational message.
