Batman Begins (Frank's Take)
01/09/2005. It has been an astounding eight years since audiences last saw the Caped Crusader roam the gothic landscape in search of vengeance on the big screen, says Frank. Of course moviegoers were previously treated to distinctive versions of the Black Knight courtesy of the artistic whims by noted filmmakers Tim Burton and Joel Schumacher. While Burton chose to delve into the dank and sardonic surrealism of the courageous Costumed One, Schumacher delivered somewhat of a flexible frivolous take on the classic comic book hero.

Batman Begins 2-Disc Special Edition (Geoff's take)
01/02/2006. DVD: Warner Brothers Z1 729259. 134 minute film plus loads of extras. Price: £9.97 (UK) but shop around for the best price). stars: Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Liam Neeson, Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman and others...

Battle for Terra (Frank's take)
06/05/2009. The innocuous kiddie 3-D sci-fi animation Battle for Terra is a quaint and sweet-hearted vehicle armed with a cautionary message. Unfortunately, there is nothing else redeeming about this tyke-oriented intergalactic fable that resonates with convincing gusto.

Battlefield Earth Review
01/06/2000. We've seen a lot of alien invasion movies come out over the past few years, but when's the last time we saw a really cool movie about aliens actually running our planet?

Battleship (Frank's take)
1/06/2012. There have been countless movies inspired by popularised video games. The list is endless in the “video game-to-big-screen” genre. In terms of board games being the blueprint for movie adaptations…well, let’s just say that this particular cinematic concept has not been as ubiquitous as their video game counterparts.

Battlestar Galactica Season One by Bear McCreary
01/08/2005. CD: LalaLand Records LLLCD 1032. 30 tracks - 78.33minutes. Price: $16.95 (US), £13.99 UK- import.

Battlestar Galactica Series 2 DVD boxset
01/11/2006. DVD Region 2. Universal DVD Video 824-270-8-11, 6 discs, 882 minutes 20 episodes. Price: £49.99 although can be got as cheap as £35.00 (UK). stars: Edward James Olmos, Mary McDonnell, Jamie Bamber, Katee Sackhoff, James Callis, Tricia Helfer and Grace Park.

Beastly
01/04/2011. The classic fairy tale Beauty and the Beast is updated for the tweener masses, says Frank, in the lame youth-oriented sci-fi romancer Beastly. Writer-director Daniel Barnz oversees a drab and cheesy movie version to the revered literary fable by instilling a Gossip Girl vibe to the movie’s contemporary shadings.

Beck Vol 1 Episodes 1-5
01/01/2008. region2 DVD: pub: Revelation Films. FUN72501. 1 DVD 125 minutes 5 episodes plus extras. Price: £15.99 (UK).

Bee Movie (Frank's take)
01/12/2007. A spelling bee. A busy bee. A killer bee. But a Seinfeld bee? Sorry Jerry, says Frank, your hapless honey-seeking hero doesn’t create much of an animated buzz. Still, the non-judgmental kiddies will be stung by the wealthy comedian’s colorfully amiable but simplistic one-note family fare Bee Movie. Seinfeld’s cheeky collaboration with the profitable DreamWorks machine wouldn’t arouse a beehive with spraying water from a garden hose.

Beowulf (Mark's take)
01/12/2007. Robert Zemekis's adaptation of the story of Beowulf is actually exciting and shows great imagination throughout, says Mark. The oldest story in the English language (dating from about AD 700) combines with state of the art graphic technology to create a fast-paced and exhilarating heroic adventure. This film does a lot that is very hard to get right and most of it, it does get it right.

Billy The Kid And The Green Baize Vampire
01/10/2006. DVD: Network 7952517. time: 90 minutes. Price: £12.99 (UK) Rated: 15) stars Bruce Payne, Louise Gold, Richard Ridings and Don Henderson.

Bionic Ever After?
01/05/2011. Region Two DVD: pub: Universal FHED2764. 1 DVD 87 minute film. Price: about GBP 6.50 (UK) if you know where to look) stars: Lindsay Wagner, Lee Majors, Richard Anderson and Martin E. Brooks.

Bionic Showdown
01/05/2011. Region Two DVD: pub: Universal FHED2763. 1 DVD 96 minute film. Price: about GBP 6.50 (UK) if you know where to look) stars: Lee Majors, Lindsay Wagner, Sandra Bullock, Richard Anderson, Jeff Yagher and Martin E. Brooks

Bird Of Prey: The Complete Collection
01/06/2006. DVD: BBC CCTV30316. 391 minutes 2 series, 4 episodes a season. No extras. Price: £14.99 (UK) but shop around for the best price) stars: Richard Griffiths, Carol Nimmons, Nigel Davenport, Bob Peck, Ann Pennington, Lee Montague and many others.

Bitten by a Scorpion: The Scorpion King
01/05/2002. Mark R. Leeper says Conan the Barbarian (in virtually all but name) clobbers again in another sword and sorcery adventure, but this time he is played by The Rock and called Mathayus, the Scorpion King.

Black is not the new Black
01/08/2002. The "Men in Black II" are back to save us from the out-of-this-world vermin. But who the heck is out to save us from the utter piffle of this sequel's 'alien'-ating existence? Frank tells you exactly why you shouldn't be seeing this rubbish, here.

Bloodrayne (Frank's Take)
01/02/2006. One must hand it to German filmmaker Uwe Boll, says Frank, in terms of being consistent when beginning this year's movie season with one of the genre's trademark vacuous video-game-to-film features. But is the movie BloodRayne more to Frank's taste? Is it heck?

Boogeyman: Frank's Take
01/03/2005. What can you say about basing a psychological spookfest on the exploitation of childhood fears? Inherently, there’s solid potential for cultivating some serious goosebumps from this notion of facing your past torment as a disillusioned young adult. Well, director Stephen T. Kay (Get Carter) tries to push the ghoulish gumption of revisiting our creepy kiddie turmoil in the generic chiller Boogeyman.

Bridge to Terabithia: Mark's take
01/04/2007. Jess has a terrible life at home and at school, says Mark. But situations get much more bearable and better when the new girl in town moves in next door and is enrolled in his class. She opens for him a whole new world of intellect and art and fantasy. The two are outcasts, but form a rich (platonic) relationship together that strengthens Jess for some of the emotional wrenches to come. This is a film that is by turns wonderful and heart breaking. Do not expect a big special-effects fantasy. Fantasy and its power is just one theme among several well-presented themes.

Brothers Of The Head (Mark's take)
01/09/2006. A 1977 novella by Brian Aldiss is the basis for this punk rock pseudo-documentary about conjoined twins who become punk rock stars in the mid-1970s, says Mark. The pace is slow, the story is slight, and the music is loud. I must not have been the filmmakers' intended audience.

Bruce Almighty (Frank's Take)
01/07/2003. In the Christian cut-up comedy Bruce Almighty, the conscientious Carrey is ready to embrace the wacky wonderment of his comedy roots once again by returning to the gawky goings-on that garnered him a cult following amongst the Ace Ventura crowd ages ago.

Buffy The Vampire Slayer
01/01/2011. region 2 DVD: pub: 20th Century Fox B000X42YPM. 42 DVDs 7 seasons 166 episodes with extras. ISBN . Price: about GBP 52.00 (UK) if you know where to look. stars: Sarah Michelle Geller, Alyson Hannigan, Nicholas Brendon, Michelle Trachtenberg, James Marsters, Emma Caulfield & Anthony Stewart Head and a cast of thousands.
