DVD Report: Batman & Robin (the 1949 movie serial)

1 Comment

Don’t confuse this with the infamously bad Joel Schumacher film from 1997. This serial was produced in 1949. You may recall I recently reviewed the previous serial from 6 years previous. Now it’s time to see how the sequel holds up. Except it’s not really a sequel. None of the original actors return, and much has changed from the original. If anything, it’s closer to the comics now.

The DC action figure review isn’t quite ready yet. In its place I’ll put one of the comic reviews up. I’ve been wanting to start going through the comic collection, the only collection more out of control than my Transformers. I haven’t been able to do that either, so to have something here I bring you another “Scanning My Collection” posting featuring my favorite crossover story. And it’s pretty fitting for Halloween, now that I think of it.

I promise to have the right review up next week.
