It’s episode 10 of The DVD Shelf Movie Reviews! Back in the very first episode, we took a look at the 2008 blockbuster, The Dark Knight, so in commemoration, we’re going to dip back into the Batman discs with this classic cinematic spin-off of Batman: The Animated Series. Batman: Mask of the Phantasm weaves an action-packed mystery story around Batman, Joker, and a ghostly crime boss killer running amok in Gotham City. We’ll look at the film plus get a little inside info on Batman: The Animated Series, the beloved cartoon show that inspired this film.
As the Star Wars rumors come flooding in, a lot of fans wonder what an entry in the series would be like without a Skywalker present. In hopes to bringing the franchise back to its roots, we may not have to wonder much longer.
It’s still up in the air what the story in Star Wars: Episode VII will be about or which characters it will even focus on. Will it borrow at all from the novels or be its own thing with whole new characters? If the latest words from Mark Hamill are any indication, we may see Luke back in action in a role very reminiscent to Obi-Wan Kenobi in the original trilogy.
