The third and final season of Starz’s DA VINCI’S DEMONS, Saturdays at 8 PM, sees Leonardo Da Vinci, still a relatively young man played by Tom Riley, making weapons of war to defend Italy from the Turks. David S. Goyer, who created DA VINCI’S DEMONS and is one of the executive producers, originally turned over the show-running reins for the third season to John Shiban because he was up to his eyebrows in other projects, including writing the screenplay for the much-anticipated BATMAN V. SUPERMAN and creating/running NBC’s CONSTANTINE, the TV series adaptation of D.C. Comics’ HELLBLAZER. However, as Goyer […]Read On »

DA VINCI’S DEMONS, on Starz Saturdays at 9 PM, begins its second season March 22 pretty much where Season 1 left off. We’re in late fifteenth-centuryFlorence, and artist/inventor/all-round genius Leonardo Da Vinci (Tom Riley) has incensed the city’s ruler, Lorenzo de Medici (Elliot Cowan) by having an affair with Lorenzo’s mistress,Vatican spy Lucrezia Donati (Laura Haddock). Although Leonardo and Lorenzo are locked in combat, they actually have bigger problems, as the forces of Pope Sixtus (James Faulkner), led by the Pope’s relative Count Girolamo Riario (Blake Ritson) and the ambitious Francesco Pazzi (Elliot Levey), are battling Medici’s men in the […]Read On »

Comic-Con News: Tim Burton says his BATMAN looks like BATMAN ON ICE compared to newer, darker superhero movies

With the brooding Christopher Nolan directed THE DARK KNIGHT RISES about to hit theaters, people forget that the original BATMAN movie from Tim Burton in 1989 was also perceived as the darkest superhero movie up until that point. While promoting his FRANKENWEENIE stop-motion animated movie at Comic-Con in San Diego, the director remembers the nervousness surrounding his vision and how it compares now with all these dark superhero movies hitting the theaters. “I recall back when we were doing BATMAN how people were worried that it was ‘too dark’, but now it looks like a light-hearted romp – BATMAN ON […]Read On »

CD Review: BATMAN FOREVER: LIMITED EDITION soundtrack (3,500 limited edition)

Where it seemed that the first two scores in the BATMAN franchise were as crazy as you could get with the Wagnerian approach to superhero scoring, then Elliot Goldenthal’s next two entries made Danny Elfman’s brilliant, demon circus takes seem positively somnambulant in comparison. If anything, Goldenthal’s BATMAN FOREVER and BATMAN AND ROBIN scores are like two alarm clocks, screaming through your senses as they mash together the 60’s jazz kitsch that Neil Hefti gave to the television show, along with the brash, brassy experimentalism of John Corigliano’s concert hall works in the 80’s- modernism that changed the face of […]Read On »

Well, now we know: The two villains that will square off against Christian Bale’s gravelly-voiced Gotham City crusader in the third Christopher Nolan-helmed Batman film DARK KNIGHT RISES will be Catwoman (purrfect) and Bane (snap!) played by Anne Hathaway and Tom Hardy, respectively. With a fan base not only devoutly dedicated to the many years of continuity in the Bat-comics, but impressed by Nolan’s unique, some might even say pseudo-realistic take on the surreal shenanigans of the cowled one and his extensive rogues’ gallery, how exactly do you handle reintroducing both of these antagonists in a way sure to please […]Read On »

CD Review: BATMAN RETURNS: LIMITED EDITION soundtrack (3500 edition)

Few composers have more fun unleashing their devilishly twisted side like Danny Elfman, especially when longtime collaborator Tim Burton truly lets his creativity go bats**t. But if one film takes that cake in their always-eccentric pairings, then it would be the shining piece of comic book coal called BATMAN RETURNS. Sure their first BATMAN was dark, but no one expected the moral bestiality that would result from the pairing of The Bat, The Cat and The Penguin, a ménage a trois complete with whip-wielding S & M, intended child homicide and a very bloody nose- all prancing about to the […]Read On »
