Jokers Wild

Here at the Smack, we’d have to say that he’s the most iconic comic book villain of all time. The Joker just turned 75, by the way, having first appeared in Batman #1 back on April 25, 1940. So happy birthday, you green-haired, crazy-eyed, psychopathic criminal, you! As a straight-up birthday present to fans, Suicide Squad director David Ayer just tweeted out a clear look at the Joker as he’s going to ...

Nightcrawler (2014) vs. Zodiac (2007)

The Smackdown If we’ve learned anything over the years from movies about journalists, reporters and TV newspeople, it’s that theirs is a world of ethical and psychological pitfalls. One day, you’re an upstanding citizen doing your job, investigating and helping keep the public apprised of current events, and then, suddenly you’re Kirk Douglas in Ace in the Hole (1951), deliberately manipulating your story to create and prolong the media circus surrounding ...

Gone Girl (2014) vs. Gone Baby Gone (2007)

The Smackdown What will be the water cooler topic of the coming years? If you work in my office, then Fantasy Football is, as always, the obvious answer.

In terms of episodic TV, the pickings are growing steadily slimmer, with Breaking Bad a brilliant but fading memory, Mad Men with ...

Foxcatcher (2014) vs. Win Win (2011)

The Smackdown Maybe it's just me, but I wrestled a bit as a kid and saw more than enough of my coach without ever moving in with him. I'll tell you right now, if that's what cost me a shot at having my life blown up on the big screen for the world to enjoy, I'm okay with it, especially after seeing how messed up the protagonists in these two indie ...

Breaking Bad vs. The Sopranos

The Smackdown Critics and audiences seem to agree in large numbers that the greatest continuing one-hour series ever to air on American television is either the recently departed masterwork Breaking Bad or the groundbreaking show that first aired in the previous decade, The Sopranos. Both are gruelingly suspenseful and violent neo-noir crime stories interwoven with searing family drama, intense action and bizarre black comedy. Between them they've garnered numerous Emmy awards for ...
