Bitter Balcony rocks out with The Happy Hollows’ “Death to Vivek Kemp” video!!!

Your friends at the Balcony have been in a bit of a film dry spell. What did you expect? With choices like “Repo Men,” “The Bounty Hunter” and “Remember Me,” our interest in the seventh art has taken a back seat. Not to worry, we’ll get back to watching crap for your enjoyment, but for now, we feature a cool animated video by Los Angeles indie band The Happy Hollows.

Where's The Tea Party when you need them? Movie ticket prices are going up, my friends!

The movie industry has raised their admission prices, an unprecedented spike considering that 2009 was one of the industry’s most lucrative years. According to The Wall Street Journal’s Lauren A.E. Schuker and Ethan Smith, the increase has gone up in some establishments up to 26%; however, the spike seems geared exclusively for 3-D Imax features.

We need these comics made into films like, now!

 
We need these comics made into films like, now!

We at the balcony love comic book movies, even the bad ones (it’s an easy source for our brand of bashing), and our good pals in Hollywood are more than happy to oblige. While the Holy Trinity of the comic universe, Batman, Superman, and Spiderman, are still in the pre-production stages for their new screen incarnations, we have several other heroes coming to a theater near you: Iron Man, Conan, Green Hornet, Thor and Green Lantern just to name a few. All these characters have or will spun franchises, obviously film producers’ favorite thing besides decaf, skim milk mocha chinos.

Hot Women in Superhero Outfits leave our Nerd Hearts all Warmed Up!!!

 
Hot Women in Superhero Outfits leave our nerd hearts all warmed up!!!

Yes, Bitter Balcony is run by geeks. I mean, this is comic book week, and soon we are planning our tribute to DOS (I see a review of War Games and its famous chess match on the horizon). But we are also men, and if you have seen our homage to the fairer sex in our weekly hotties in haiku, somewhat sexually starved ones (We wrote a haiku about a blue alien warrior princess and Brad Pitt in a dress, so things are staring to get desperate for your bitter pals).

Nolan’s Soooo Super: News on his Superman revamp and of course, Batman!

 
Nolan’s Soooo Super: News on his Superman revamp and of course, Batman!

DC Comics owes Christopher Nolan a huge debt of gratitude. The mind-bending British director has made Batman look better than ever, and now Warner Bros. has asked Nolan to oversee a new revision of the Man of Steel franchise. Nolan, who’s “Inception” will open in theaters this summer (check out our Inception Lookout here) has been in a decade long roll, producing quality work like “Memento”, “The Prestige”, and the previously mentioned Batman series.
