In the 90's part of my daily after-school ritual was watching Batman: The Animated Series, so I think it’s fair to say that I have a lot of nostalgia for Batman in animated form. With that in mind, I was pretty intrigued to find out about Frank Miller’s Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, which is based on a four-issue comic book that was originally published in 1986. I’ve never read anything by Frank Miller, but I think most movie fans, like myself, are familiar with the author through Sin City and The Spirit which were also based on his comics.

Quick question: Who wouldn't want to watch iconic actor/college professor/jazz musician Peter Weller valiantly battle a destructive, malicious New York City rat for nearly an hour-and-a-half? It's a tough temptation to resist, especially if you have an overwhelming hatred of prehensile-tailed vermin and a special place in your heart for "Robocop" and/or "Naked Lunch." Did I mention that the film in question is also the big screen debut of the undisputed queen of the erotic thriller, Shannon Tweed?
