Saturday Night at the Movies 11/26/16!

Who cares what picture we see?

Julie Newmar would under most circumstances, so we'll go with this one as tonight's choice...

At the Mad Monster Party convention in Charlotte NC in March 2015 I was delighted to hear Burt Ward announce that he and fellow convention guest Adam West would be supplying the voices for a new animated Batman film to be released in 2016 for the 50th anniversary of the original series' premiere.

It looked iffy for a while as there seemed to be no news of the film being in production or finished - but it was all true, and the finished film even played theaters as a one evening only Fathom Event on Monday, October 10th, 2016.

I attended that screening, and thoroughly enjoyed this very loving anniversary movie. Both West and Ward return to their roles with verve and enthusiasm, and they are joined by Julie Newmar, reprising her Catwoman role.

The other main villains here - Riddler, Joker, and Penguin - are voiced by new actors - but they all do nice jobs - though their success in capturing the flavor of the original actor go in the order I listed them in.

All in all if you enjoyed the old show - you're bound to enjoy this new movie. I promptly added the Blu-Ray to the video vault - and we could be watching the Caped Crusaders make their return at any Bat Time on my Blu-Ray player's Bat Channel - if you care to jump in your Batmobile and zoom over to my place.

Until next post, You Can BatPoke me with a BatFork, Cause I Am BatOutta Here!
