63 batmobile

63 batmobile 4

63 batmobile 3

Earliest Known Officially Licensed 1963 Batmobile. What is believed to be the world’s first car that became an officially licensed Batmobile was conceived and customized starting in 1960 by 23-year-old Forrest Robinson. After finishing the design, Robinson and a young friend, Len Perham, begun building the car in the Robinson family barn. Robinson completed the car in 1963-two years before the George Barris customization of the TV Batmobile was started. The ’63 Batmobile’ is the earliest known car in existence that was sanctioned by a DC Comics licensee

Alejandro González Iñárritu‘s Birdman is be like…

Michael Keaton is an actor who was once a superhero
keaton batman
and now is like nothing or something

&

a superhero kinda like Condorman
condorman

&

his daughter is Emma Stone

who’s like a strung out/sarcastic Daisy Duck

&

Keaton’s trying to put on a Broadway show
in hopes of reviving his career
producers-1968
but it kinda goes like The Producers
with Zach Galifianakis as the hybrid lovechild
of Zero Mostel & Gene Wilder

&

one of his costars is a jerky Ed Norton
who’s out to spoil all the fun
and steal the spotlight
ed norton x
(and Andrea Riseborough is kinda doing the same thing)

which makes it feel a little About Eve
all about eve

&

the fragile Naomi Watts is about to break

&

all of it seems like one giant artistical battle
like totally like Black Swan yo!
carrey black swan
but not nearly as freaky or freakin awesome

&

but its got shades of the creative long-take editing of
Hitch’s BRILLIANT Rope

rope cut

&

the even more creative and longer takes of
Alfonso Cuaron’s BRILLIANT Children of Men

&

luckily Amy Ryan is our center of gravity
and source of comfort
amy ryan

so what does it all add up to? an interesting movie with great technique, with a story that kinda grows old after an hour

glad to see Keaton back in action, but Oscars??? psssshah – this aint no Bettlejuice, or even Johnny Dangerously, so if he wins this year, it’s a make-up call for not winning for them roles
