Holy Tooth Decay Batman!

batman and robin clean your teeth after theyve punched them outI'm abundantly aware of how hacky and shameful that blog title is but it's unavoidable, I assure you. As much as I begged for a Batman and Steve Austin electric toothbrush as a child (because commercials told me I needed one) it was the one luxury my parents refused to provide me with. Somehow, I made it out of childhood OK despite this huge void.


Speaking of Batman: Here is another fine selection from Erick (of Wonderful Wonderblog) and he's wearing the Ben Cooper Batman costume. I've always wondered why BC decided to put the Batman Logo on the mask itself and why they felt it important to give Superman a dominoe mask. I guess I'll find out in the afterlife....

DVD DAY:

What better a time than October than to release the DVD of the Classic Tom Baker story"The Brain of Morbius"? It has all the classic horror movie elements, mad doctor, dead bodies, brain transplants, hunchback assistant, a (goofy) patchwork monster and of course, angry villagers in the form of an ancient cult.

The BBC is pretty good at packing these DVDs with extras such as commentary from Tom Baker and Liz Sladen as well little behind the scenes documentarys. You'll also get one of the bigger continuity goofs done on the series as the Doctor reveals he's had more than four past lives!


Also this week is the complete box series set of Speed Racer, it's over 1,200 minutes of the groundbreaking series that lead the charge of Japanese animation.

This is the one good thing about big Hollywood remakes, you end up getting deluxe box sets of the original series. I can't wait for Hollywood to remake "Logan's Run" just so I can get the shot lived series on DVD, it could star Carrot Top and Larry the Cable Guy for all I care, just gimmee! gimmee! gimmee!

I think I would watch a version of Logan's Run starring Carrot Top & Larry the Cable Guy... just because it would be soooo weird!

I want to see those two kids have a all-out thrown-down brawl ala Frank Miller's Dark Knight Returns, where we see the kid in the Bats costume crushing the jaw of the kid in the Supes costume with his spike-treaded boot.
