Return to Batman: The Brave & The Bold

While nothing can ever touch Batman: the Animated Series, this is a legitimate version of Batman and lots of fun. There are often nods of and echoes to Batman's lighter side, such as the Batman camp TV series from 1966 (and some of sillier Batman & Detective Comics from 1950's and 60's), as well as Batman's darker side, from his beginnings in the 1940's to even hints of things like Frank Miller's Dark Knight (a lot less of that, as this show was meant to be kid-friendly, even though there's plenty there for adult comic book geeks.

It's very flawed, but enjoyable. But not for the squeamish nor for people turned off by gun-fu. There are a *lot* rounds fired in this film. It's a bit gratuitous, but due to the nature of the characters and the setting, it didn't bother me.

Gore, Grace, Horror & Hope: The Poetry of Netflix's Daredevil

But here's what I'll say about the second series of Marvel & Netflix's Daredevil so far (basically spoiler free. No plot giveaways here, anyway): As hard an R as the Deadpool movie is, this is even more so. What humor is to Deadpool (with a little horror thrown in), horror is to this 2nd season of Daredevil (with a little humor thrown in).
