What to watch on IFC tonight: Batman, Batman and more Batman

Spend the night arguing about whether Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer or George Clooney was the best Batman when we show back-to-back- Batman movies.

The Batman is coming to IFC

Tonight at 7:15 p.m. ET we are lighting up the sky over Gotham with the Bat Signal, because the Dark Knight is coming to IFC. Tim Burton’s 1989 “Batman” is the big-screen response to the serious (and seriously violent) revisionist comic book tales of the ’80s. The film reimagines Gotham as a foreboding industrial metropolis […]

“Twilight” offers a new dawn for alt-soundtracks.

The dominant narrative about movie soundtracks points to the ’90s as the key moment when the all-original score was tossed aside in favor of soundtracks stringing together disconnected B-sides and one-offs from bands (that didn’t even need to be in the movie) — another key source of revenue in the ever-expanding merchandising race. “Singles” was […]

Gotham City, A Visual History

Since 1940’s “Batman” #4, and his first movie serial three years later, the Caped Crusader has called Gotham City his home. On screen and on the printed page, its visual representation has changed quite a bit over almost 70 years. At times, the look of the metropolis has been an afterthought; at others, directors have […]
