Batman and Robin Tops the 10 worst movies of all time

There’s really no surprise that Joel Schumacher’s franchise-ending shlockfest Batman and Robin was named the Worst of the Worst on TBR’s “Top 10 Movies to avoid, Worst Movies of All Time” list.  What’s amazing is that they found nine others bad enough to be grouped with it.


1. Batman and Robin is a 1997 superhero film directed by Joel Schumacher. Based on the DC Comics character Batman, staring George Clooney. Even him once admitted Batman & Robin, the schlocky 1997 superhero movie that jump-started the actor’s career, was lame. Now director Joel Schumacher’s steaming heap of cinematic dung has been voted the worst film ever by readers of Empire magazine. Atempting to pick out just one bad scene from Batman & Robin is impossible, and it certainly wouldn’t do justice to just how painfully awful the rest of it is. The film is so dreadful that director Joel Schumacher actually apologized for it on the DVD commentary. That’s right, the man who proudly made 8MM, The Number 23 and Cousins thought Batman & Robin was so bad that it warranted an apology.

Batman Arkham Asylum tops list of 10 Best Superhero Games Of All Time

It’s nice to know that the many missteps of the disappointing sequel are not being held against the original stellar game Batman: Arkham Asylum, topping Crave Online’s list of the 10 Best Superhero Games of All Time.

Yes, of ALL time.  The Crusades, Ancient Mesopotamia, everywhere.  Gotta love the gamers and fanboys, they do love their superlatives.



Developer: Rocksteady Studios
System: Xbox 360, PS3, PC
Release: August 2009

Did you expect something else to be in the number one spot? If so, shame on you. Batman: Arkham Asylum is easily the best Batman video game ever made, and a perfect use of a well-established license by Rocksteady Studios. Arkham Asylum had everything a Batman fan could ask for: phenomenal graphics, excellent voice work, an amazing combat system, proper use of Batman’s detective reasoning, and a boatload of cool gadgets.

But Batman: Arkham Asylum isn’t just a game made for the Bat-fanatics. Arkham Asylum is a great game period. It was runner-up only to Uncharted 2: Among Thieves for our game of the year back in 2009.
