Three years ago, Superman got his own Christopher Nolan-influenced movie reboot, full of brooding portents and Kryptonian politics. Man of Steel was a pretty good movie, albeit one with serious flaws. Now the sequel is out, and it deals with a lot of the same ideas and themes. And fumbles them completely.
Villains sure do like to be captured on purpose, don't they? We've seen it again and again as a trope, but it's not always a bad thing. Sometimes, it does show just how brilliant our bad guy is. And sometimes, it shows just how stupid our heroes are. Here are the best — and worst — times a villain got sent to the…
I like some of Christopher Nolan's movies more than others. And I like The Dark Knight—although mostly because of Heath Ledger. But, after watching this The Dark Incredibles trailer, I have the feeling that a dark version of Brad Bird's movie would suck.
The Dark Knight Rises is finally, finally, finally almost here—and while that's great, it also means loads of promotional material. Thankfully, some of it's pretty great, like these Nokia maps of Gotham City.
They've been around for at least a year now, and all my research points to obscuring your brake lights as being very illegal. But I don't care. This is the closest my hatchback will ever get to being the batmobile.

Warner Bros. has an interesting program that they've recently expanded a bit—mail in an old DVD movie along with $5 to swap it for the newer, Blu-ray version. After mulling it over, I think I like the idea.
We're not gonna deny it—we love special effects. It ranks right up there with plot and concept as the reason why we go see movies.
Chris Nolan just hosted the live, on-demand substitute for a Dark Knight commentary track last night. So why was I left unsatisfied after squinting at my TV for two and a half hours?
Bob Dullam is a man possessed-by a lot of things, surely, but mainly by the drive to build this absolutely amazing working replica of Batman's current-gen Batmobile, the Tumbler. Our buddies over at Jalopnik have spotted it, and It's got it all-the afterburner, the huge honking double-barrel wheels, the…
