So back in 2003 there was this fanboy who made his own Batman short film that cost in the neighborhood of $30,000. OK, he's not really a fanboy. He is in the film business and his name is Sandy Collora. And he is releasing his first feature film in the near-future. A sci-fi project called Hunter Prey and it is being called a pretty interesting blend of Enemy Mine and Treasure of Sierra Madre. Really.
But it's the Batman short film that I find to be more interesting. It's an injured Bats chasing down an escaped Joker in the rain. At first I thought it was gonna be something similar to the end of "The Killing Joke", but then all Hell breaks loose. You'll see what I mean. It's not glossy, it's not shiny. But it feels more like a Batman film than just about anything ever done by someone not named Christopher Nolan.
Check it out, even though you probably already saw it 6 years ago.
Note: Remember to play the Bug-Eyed Trivia Challenge every day. 2003 called, and it wants it's blog post back. Sigh.
