Son Of Batman (2014) Indiscretion of a Bat

This entry was posted in Action, Adventure, Animated, Crime, Fantasy by William Drummond on

Son-of-Batman-2014-Cover-ArtA surprisingly good animated story about the union of Batman and the Magician, the daughter of Ra’s al Ghul. Ra’s you will recall is one of the Bat’s greatest enemies as well as one of his teachers. This story shows us that a chance encounter or rather manipulation of Bruce Wayne by Talia produced a son, named Damian. And what a child he is.

Damian has all the warmth and compassion that you would expect being a child of Talia and the grandson of the leader of the League of Shadow, actually League of Assassins in the film. He also has the resourcefulness and tenacity to complete that his father Bruce Wayne has as well as that intellect. He proves this at one point when he tells his father that he had been hacking into the Batcave computers ever since he was 4 years old. Batman just gave the kid the “It figures” look and continued on since he couldn’t do anything about it anyway.

Cheese and Herb Scones

I’ve been experimenting with an old recipe from the Northumberland region of England. They were called Singin’ Hinnies, because when one would cook them on a griddle, they would hiss or “sing”. Now, I bake these instead of cooking them on griddle, and have found many variations on the Hinnies, and this is a fine, savoury addition.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2 tbsp lard
2 tbsp butter
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp dried parsley
1 tsp dried chives
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
milk or sour cream

Mix all ingredients well except for the milk or sour cream. Add these gradually until your have a moistened dough. Turn out dough on rolling or large cutting board. Roll out dough to 1/2 to 1 inch in thickness. Cut with 2 inch diameter biscuit cutter, dipping the cutter in flour between each cut to stop the dough from sticking. Place each scone about 1 inch apart from the other. Bake 30-35 minutes. Serve hot with butter. Makes 12 scones

Ninja Gaiden II is little bit easier than the first game. The first game was really hard and more challenging. This game takes place one year after from the first game. In the beginning of the game there is a CIA agent named Sonia. She is looking for Ryu Hayabusa’s wherebouts, until members of the Black Spider Clan appear and kidnap her. Ryu has to stop the Black Spider Clan to save her. Ryu did save her from the Black Spider Clan, but his village is in trouble. Ryu must save his village and save the world. Could he do it? Find out when you are playing this game!

Barbarella (1968) Who Nearly Dies of Pleasure?

Barbarella-1968-Movie-PosterAs the saying goes, “I don’t usually drink beer, but when I do, I choose….” The same can be said with Musing movies reviews. We don’t normally review every bad movie we see, but when we do, watch the sparks fly. Good examples are 2012: Supernova and Piranha. We welcome Barbarella to the list of movies to avoid, even if it was made during the very campy late 1960s. This is cheesy sci-fi at its pinnacle, with spaceship interiors made of shag carpeting, set designs featuring psychedelic images and clear Plexiglas furniture. The only good thing to come out of this mess was the new romantic band Duran Duran, but they would not see their highest success until almost twenty years later.

Jane Fonda plays the lead as the space explorer, Barbarella. She comes from an Earth that is full of the peace and love of the hippie culture, but none of the sexiness that came with it. Considering all the erotic fashion designs Paco Rabanne put her in, it was rather hard to believe how quickly this lady went from virgin to ‘ho.

Ninja Gaiden is a fun Ninja game you will want to play on the original XBOX, Xbox 360, and PS3. I just played the PS3 version. The PS3 version is Ninja Gaiden Sigma and the XBox 360 version is Ninja Gaiden Black. This game is part of the DOA series. This game is about the young Dragon ninja name Ryu Hayabusa as he fights against the Black Spider Ninja Clan to save his village. He is lent the legendary Dragon Sword by his father. Ryu Hayabusa is in the DOA games. He was been around before the DOA series. There is another character of the DOA series and her name Ayane. Yes! Kasumi’s worst enemy and hateful friend. She was a mean, evil, and sexy woman in the DOA series, but in this game she is one of the good guys. She will help you in the game when you die too many times. There one more character in this game and she is not in the DOA series. Her name Rachel. She is a demon hunter and it looks like Dante found himself girlfriend. He isn’t this game, though.
