What’s Killing My Social Life This Week – Batman: Arkham Origins

Batman_Arkham_Origins

Hey now, Evil Geeks!  Who feels like talking video games?  You know your friendly neighborhood C-Mart certainly is!  If there’s one thing I love talking about just as much as if not more than video games, that would be Batman; so when those worlds collide, there’s definitely going to be some conversing and some reviewing to be done.  This week we’re cracking open Batman: Arkham Origins by WB Games, who’ve taken over the reins from Rocksteady.  You may have read Arthur Harkness’ earlier suggestion for this game, but today I’m cutting through the fanboy and giving you the critical review that Gotham deserves.  Tell your mom to get your cowl out of the dryer and make sure you’re homemade batarangs are shiny and spotless, it’s time to clean up the streets of Gotham with nothing more than good, old-fashioned, all American, violence…and of course a billion dollar fortune!

Happy Batman Day From The Brotherhood of Evil Geeks!

The-Dark-Knight-Rises

Happy Batman Day Evil Geeks!  In case you weren’t aware, today is the day that The Dark Knight Rises is finally released on Blu-Ray and DVD!  Even though we saw it multiple times in the theater, we’re still going to be glued to the big screen here in the Evil Rec Room all day watching it again and again.  In between showings, we’re going to crawl out of the prison hole that Bane left us in, to bring you some other Batman related posts.  So to get us warmed up and ready to watch again, here’s a few pics from our favorite parts of the movie.

Get these Mothaf#%&in’ Banes off this Mothaf#%&in’ plane!

You can be sure that we’re going to be watching the opening plane heist scene a whole bunch of times today.  It’s got some of the best quotable Bane dialogue!

 

Master Bruce, I'm afraid Novembeard has ended.

Man are we going to miss Michael Caine as Alfred.  He had us in tears near the end of The Dark Knight Rises.  Somebody get that man a Fernet Branca, NOW!

 

Oh man, my Batsuit is starting to feel tight.

I don’t think we need to explain why we dug Anne Hathaway as Catwoman.

I was born in darkness!

One of the best scenes of the film is the absolutely brutal and unforgiving fight between Bane and Batman where Bane completely breaks the Bat.  I still cringe when he hits him with the back breaker.  We also get a whole bunch more quotable Bane lines in this scene too!

To quote Michael Keaton: "It's the car right? Chicks dig the car."

I’m definitely going to miss Christian Bale’s gruff, gravely, and downright Tom Waits-ian Batman voice.  It may come off a little goofy, but damn it that’s how Batman should sound!

He's the chic, fashion forward terrorist.

I don’t think anyone can ever top Heath Ledger’s Joker as far as Batman movie villains go, but MAN Tom Hardy came close as Bane.

The EPIC final battle between Batman and Bane will also get multiple viewings tomorrow.

And Finally…

Aaaarrrrggggghhh!

Aaaarrrrggggghhh!

I actually don’t remember this part of the movie…

REMEMBER EVIL GEEKS, THIS MAY NOT BE THE BLU-RAY THAT YOU WANT, BUT IT IS THE BLU-RAY THAT YOU NEED!
