Geek Out Commentary: The Dark Knight Rises

Geek Out's 75th anniversary celebration of Batman concludes (As does the first year of commentaries) with this final appearance of Christian Bale as the Caped Crusader. The Dark Knight Rises is an interesting film that has moments that captivate the Geek Out gang and other moments that completely pull them out of the movie. Jake is delighted with Tom Hardy's performance as his favorite Batman villain, Bane, but is put off by other elements of the film (Including his apparent contempt for the Pittsburgh Steelers). None of the guys are particular fans of the way the movie starts and Sam and Chris lament the film as something that only halfway succeeds at closing out Bale's trilogy of Batman. Take a listen.

Geek Out Commentary: The Dark Knight

Man, I feel like most people were waiting this entire 75th anniversary celebration of Batman to get to this commentary. Largely recognized as one of the greatest comic book films OF ALL TIME, The Dark Knight is a film that transcended its origins to become this huge culturally significant film (And the first film since Titanic to gross over $1 billion at the box office). Rightfully remembered for Heath Ledger's scene-stealing performance as The Joker, listen as the Geek Out gang remembers when they first saw this monumental film during the summer of 2008, Eric Roberts' weird mobster voice, and the scene the guys wish would never end. This is the big one, guys.

Geek Out Commentary: Batman Begins

Man, after a couple weeks of absolute cinematic crap, we finally get back to some GOOD movies. Batman Begins succeeded in bringing back the Caped Crusader to the big screen in a meaningful way and, while often overlooked compared to its immediate sequel, stands as one of the best comic book films ever made and is largely responsible for the current Marvel and DC comic book movie strategies. It is a deeply personal film for Sam and is the movie that Jake regards as his personal favorite of the Christian Bale's trilogy of appearances as the Dark Knight.

Geek Out Commentary: Batman and Robin

I think on some level, we've all been waiting for and dreading this at the same time. That being said, Sam and Jake both argue that Batman and Robin is a better film than its predecessor because, unlike Batman Forever, it knows exactly what it is and completely embraces the franchise's campiness, aided largely by Arnold Schwarzenegger's over-the-top performance as Mr. Freeze. Now we're not saying it's a good movie but, well, just listen in for yourself as the gang dives into the end of the pre-Christian Bale Batman films with the infamous Batman and Robin...

Geek Out Commentary: Batman Forever

For all those that REALLY wanted Batman Forever to be last week's commentary, here it is this week as we continue our celebration of Batman's 75th anniversary by doing commentaries for all big screen films starring everyone's favorite Dark Knight (And we'll get to that one too!). Batman Forever was a film that figured prominently in the Geek Out gang's childhood (Well, really just the summer of 1995) and is responsible for Seal's chart-topping smash single "Kiss from a Rose", but how is the movie itself. Jake goes into the movie excited; he remembered loving it as a kid...will the sentimental nostalgia hold up or will he be bitterly disappointed?

Geek Out Commentary: Batman - Mask of the Phantasm

You were totally expecting Batman Forever this week, weren't you? Everyone forgets that Batman: The Animated Series was so popular that it had its own feature film that got a full theatrical release, much less that it was released before Batman Forever. So, in covering all of Batman's starring roles on the big screen for his 75th anniversary, we're taking the time to revisit the criminally overlooked Batman: Mask of the Phantasm. Trust us, it's better than the two films that come right after it.

Geek Out Commentary: Batman Returns

The big debate the Geek Out guys face while watching Tim Burton and Michael Keaton's follow-up to their enormously successful Batman is which Tim Burton/Michael Keaton Batman film is the best? Batman Returns is a film that Sam particularly remembers being marketed heavily in 1992 and remains one of his favorite Christmas films of all time (Try to tell him it's not a Christmas movie and he very well may try to fight you to the death). Chris ponders whether Batman Returns is his favorite Batman movie overall and no, he's not joking. And Jake, ever the Burton/Keaton Batman enthusiast muses that while he doesn't like Batman Returns as much as Batman 1989, it's leaps and bounds better than what came next.

Geek Out Commentary: Batman 1989

The 75th anniversary celebration of the creation of Batman continues with one of Masked Manhunter's biggest cinematic adventures. Batman 1989 was a return to dark and gritty form for the Bat in the mainstream media with then-up-and-coming director enlisting Michael Keaton and Jack Nicholson to launch the venerated superhero franchise on the big screen. It was a formative film for the Geek Out gang as they were all young when the film first debuted and had a particularly large impact on Jake who still cites the film as a favorite of Batman's big screen adventures, especially when nostalgia is factored into the equation.

Sam will always remember this as the third film he ever saw in theaters back in the summer of 1989 (A year that Jake refers to as possibly the greatest year for film). Chris is amazed by the 4K remaster of the film he grew up loving so much while providing a bit of New York trivia about the movie. Jake reveals his personal favorite scene in the film while Sam observes that while he enjoys the film as a whole, he is always let down by the movie's opening premise.

October Rocktober's month of horror films continues with Chris making the third (And arguably the best) Nightmare on Elm Street film his pick of the month.

Geek Out Commentary: Double Team

It's been pretty well established that the gang enjoys an entertaining terrible flick but the film that Sam inflicts on the Geek Out trio this week may be a bridge too far. Since the runaway success of 48 Hrs. and Lethal Weapon, Hollywood has been coming up with action team-ups for years but in 1997 they may have inadvertently created the greatest team-up of all time: Jean-Claude Van Damme and Dennis Rodman in the action flick Double Team. For Sam, it's a not-so-guilty pleasure, for Chris and Jake, it's a cinematic slog through hell. Sam and Chris attempt to turn all the Rodman-centric basketball references into a drinking game. Jake tries to remind Sam to suspend his disbelief. And the gang keeps track of all the blatant product placement and excuses to insert a tiger into the proceedings. Only one more week of shitty movies until we actually get to some good stuff after this, guys...
