The Long Box – Casting Call: “Batman: Under the Hood”
Aug 2014 22

With the recent rumors about the plot of Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice, I decided to take a look at one of my favorite Batman stories from the last 10 years.

The Bat-Franchise is one of Warner Brothers most lucrative properties.  The advantage of having Ben Affleck make his debut in a non solo Batman movie is that the character will be established in this film.  The door is wide open for a stand alone movie next. Why not start with a story about what happened to the second Robin, Jason Todd?

The current rumor is that there is a tattered Robin costume on display in the Batcave. The fanboys out there  know that Bruce kept the destroyed costume of Jason Todd (the 2nd Robin).  Jason was murdered by the Joker in the epic story line “Death in the Family”.

This week we give it to the The Giver. (Wordplay!) “What’s The Giver?” you ask. Why, it’s the latest dystopian-future, kill-fest for kids. They’re releasing them monthly now. And, just in case that doesn’t sound dreary enough for you they filmed this one in black & white. Well, large chunks of it anyway.

All that plus Tom reveals his connection to Ferguson (it’s not that exciting) and Dan has a video recovery which is more exciting. Well, his recovery is even if the movie isn’t.

It’s Reel Spoilers #55: The Giver.

You’ve been warned.

Starring: Tom O’Keefe, Blake Fehl, Dan Graney, Joe Buttice
Run-time: 1hr 11min

St. Louis Baconfest Returns
Aug 2014 15

Fun fact: you can’t spell “awesome” without “bacon.”

I lied. You can. I’m not very smart. Whatever.

The fact remains, though, that bacon is more popular than ever. Whether it’s as a part of your diet or as the subject matter of your wardrobe, bacon will forever be on our minds and in our hearts (mostly as bits of saturated fat).
