Batmobile gif

Batman is man of many gadgets and toys, but none of the tools of the infamous vigilante are as iconic, as the Batmobile itself. Since it's incarnation in the comics it has been redesigned multiple times to fit with the era or version of the Bat that existed. Some models of batmobile were immortalised more than others by featuring in TV and film with the different actors that have donned the cape and cowl of Batman over the years. Each actor brought something different to the role as did directors who looked to take the franchise in their own direction. These changes are shown clearly in the vehicles chosen to be the Batmobile. The infographic and video by Select Car Leasing give you all of the information you could want about the Batmobiles used in the films and tells you ...

going up

It goes without saying that the everyday lift or elevator has been used to great effect in film and television for decades. This can range from small interactions that end up being integral to the plot of the story or they can be monumental action scenes as is the case in Captain America 2. Because the elevator is such an innocuous part of a building and peoples memory (much like the stairs or a doorway) it's easy for film makers to utilise it to suit their needs.

With that in mind TK Encasa created an ...

TV Trev's year at the movies

So as you may or may not have realised...it's been one year almost to the day (okay it's been about 3 weeks since the year marker passed but give me this) since I set the audacious target of getting 100 blog posts done in a year. I'll admit at first I had no idea what I was getting myself into, Ghost was a new platform that could maybe go under at any point for all I knew, I had no clue how to use it properly, update it or anything, I had no idea if anyone would read my stuff much less like it. Simply put I was heading out into the unknown and it was terrifying exciting. But I set myself some goals that were in my mind achievable when broken down, in reality they were difficult to ...

top 5 American Football movies

As those of you who know me might know, I am an American football fan (I use the term "fan" very loosely) and it has become a tradition for me to watch the Super Bowl every year. This has inspired me this week to make the posts about American Football but more importantly; film and TV related to the great sport. The 5 films/movies/screen plays (whatever you want to call them) in the infographic represent everything you need to make it, both in the game of American Football and in life itself. Belief in yourself, unbreakable will & mentality, teamwork, a will to do whatever it takes and most of all a support system. If you have some or all of these things there is literally nothing you can't do within the realms of possibility. The only limitations ...
