It takes a brave, brave man to dress up like a flying rodent, wouldn't you agree? Perhaps that's why since childhood I have been captivated with the super hero who really doesn't fit the definition of "super" or "hero."
He doesn't have any gamma ray induced abilities, no spider bite steroid effects, and he can't leap over tall buildings in a single bound while simultaneously telling children to obey their parents.
In fact, his parents were murdered right before his eyes, and the person he grows up to be is a study in conflicted personalities. He doesn't spout family values and conservative ideals like the man of steel, but Batman does have the heart of a lion. more >>

"I dreamt about this since I was 13. And now it's a reality. Genesis 6:14," Aronofsky wrote along with the photo on his Twitter page Wednesday.

New York Times best-selling author Eric Metaxas is among the Christians upset over the decision by LifeWay Christian Stores to remove "The Blind Side" from its shelves because it contained profanity and racial slurs. He says objections over the language miss the point of the film and such reactions make it hard for Christians to be taken seriously in cultural discussions.
Metaxas, a rising evangelical voice who is best known for his biographies on William Wilberforce and Dietrich Bonhoeffer, expressed his disapproval of LifeWay's move to pull "The Blind Side" in a commentary for BreakPoint radio this week.
"I'm kind of upset. A great movie was pulled from the shelves of a Christian bookstore chain," he said on the July 5 program. "Look, I'm as concerned about cultural messages as anyone. I'm a father. But there's a right way and a wrong way to do this – and the wrong way definitely includes the permanent state of umbrage that many Christians seem to exhibit. They seem to have confused being salt and light with being curmudgeons." more >>
A majority of Americans believe that President Barack Obama would be able to better handle an alien invasion than Republican challenger Mitt Romney, according to a recently released survey by the National Geographic Channel.
The survey, titled "Aliens Among Us: Are Movies Getting It Right?", was commissioned by the NGC for its new program Chasing UFOs, which will debut Friday evening.
