“Batwoman”: Debuting on the CW on October 6th, it joins the huge line-up of other DC Comics shows (“The Flash”, “Black Lightning”, “Supergirl”, etc). Although I’m a comic book geek, I have little interest in these shows. However, I will tune into “Batwoman”. This stars Ruby Rose as Kate Kane, looking for her cousin Bruce Wayne who along with Batman disappeared three years earlier. She discovers the Batcave in the clip below and I assume dons the “Bat” identity from there.
“Abbey Road” Anniversary Edition: The third of the deluxe editions of The Beatles albums has just been released, with “Let It Be” most likely arriving next year with a new version of the accompanying film, as well. Anyhow, this one has less extras and bells and whistles as the previous deluxe editions, but looks to have excellent content while being a bit more affordable. Here, from my favorite website SuperDeluxeEdition, is an unboxing video of the..super deluxe edition. Obviously, wonderful Christmas gift idea!
“The Joker”: Another Batman-related project, this time a Batman-less movie about his greatest villain, the Joker. This is apparently a masterpiece. I’m skeptical, of course. I saw Jennifer Lawrence’s “Mother!” on opening night when it was hailed a masterpiece – and what a piece of crap. The only draw for me is Robert De Niro playing a talk show host who seems to be Rupert Pupkin from “King of Comedy” yet it’s a different character. Overall, undecided on this.
