It's suppose to be "Grease Up the Batpole," but there's a server problem, and I can't fix it yet.

For now, use this link instead:

And, yes, you need to make an account to access it, or simply wait until I get the open link fixed.

Nolan and Batman. Who could ever have thought that was a good idea?

David Mamet had a nice little essay about the horror of artists in Hollywood in a recent issue of Harpers.

Okay, you can use the first link now. It's open to anyone without a login, but all the other reviews now require that you log in.

I'm gonna go out on a limb and say you're not a big fan of the source material.

I don't think Frank Miller's a very good writer, but the Batman stuff was okay....as a comic book. It doesn't translate well to the movies, IMO--it becomes downright stupid, all that heavy dark shit.

Same happened to me with Sin City, I like the source material, but when I saw the movie it dawned me that sometimes a 1:1 translation from one medium into another may not always be a good idea. The movie felt like an over the top comedy, only that it wasn't intended as one.

I agree, SIN CITY was ludicrous and you can't just transfer a comic, you have to recalibrate it for the larger medium....but I'm hard put to think of when that'd been done well.

Dave, I just noticed your fried pie inquiry. Yes. But it isn't that uncommon. Those litle pies they sell in convernience stores, they;re fried pies....

I would assert that the best transposition of a comic book format to the big screen were the Amicus horror anthologies of the 1970s, who captured the campiness of the old EC/DC horror books with real silver screen flair. Superheroes have fared much less well.
