BATMAN AND ROBIN (1997) and Control Our Caped Escapades continue, with BATMAN AND ROBIN. Is this a film about who is or isn’t in control? And, most importantly, who is in control of this hot mess of a movie?? This Week’s Media ROGUE ONE (2016): Gareth Edwards, Felicity Jones, Diego Luna THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN (2016): Antoine Fuqua, Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt Recommendations BLAST FROM THE PAST (1999): Hugh Wilson, Brendan Fraser, Alicia Silverstone A BEAUTIFUL MIND (2001): Ron Howard, Russell Crowe, Ed Harris KILL BILL, VOLUME 1 (2003): Quentin Tarantino, Uma Thurman, Lucy Liu CLUELESS (1995): Amy Heckerling, Barry M. Berg, Alicia Silverstone Footnotes Again, not much in the way of further reading this week. The first thing to link to is Rob’s article on the film: http://www.needtoconsume.com/film/craft-service-batman-robin. Then, here’s another (though not entirely different) take: http://www.batman-on-film.com/opinion_jett_batmanandrobin.html. Here’s a readable list of hidden/not-so-hidden ‘gems’: http://www.pajiba.com/seriously_random_lists/mindhole-blowers-20-facts-about-batman-and-robin-you-probably-dont-know-or-actively-repressed-.php. And finally, here’s another link to a good book on feminism in pop culture, which the film sort of addresses, towards the end: https://books.google.co.uk/books?id=sXWjnG5LWO0C&printsec=frontcover&source=gbs_ge_summary_r&cad=0#v=onepage&q&f=false.
