    not be able to help Gotham knowing Rachel wasn’t going to wait for him; therefore, he burned the letter. There was also James Gordon, a lieutenant for Gotham city, who helped Wayne defeat evil rather than teach him lessons. Most people view Wayne as an aid to the Gordon and the police department. However, Gordon proves time and again that Wayne couldn’t be successful without him. In the Gotham Police Department, the amount of good officers was few and far in between. In their first interaction, the audience sees the two in the bank talking about the mob and the joker as they exchange information. This then helps inform who Wayne should attack first. Also, by returning after faking his own death, Gordon proves to Wayne that he will always be there for him. Then there is Harvey Dent. At the beginning of the movie Dent is Wayne’s ally. He was the newest district attorney ready to assist Wayne against any evil without even knowing Wayne’s true identity. He even risked his life by claiming he was Batman to try and fool the Joker into ceasing the killing of innocent people. However, when he was captured and almost killed, it changed Dent. The Joker convinced Dent that Rachel died because of the barriers of the law that Dent vowed by. That was because the law would only blame the Joker for the death of Rachel instead of the other factors including Wayne and Gordon. Therefore, he no longer cared to follow the rules and helping Wayne. He then started killing people he thought was…

  • Film Review Of Rocksteady's Arkham

    The voice acting, musical score, and special effects are once again fantastic. Notably, Kevin Conroy (Batman), produces another solid performance. Coupled with Jonathan Banks (Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul) who also does a great job as James Gordon. One inclusion I am particularly fond of is how Batman: Arkham Knight utilises the Dualshock 4 's internal speaker on PlayStation 4. Hearing speech, or effects play through the controller are a commendable touch that helps enhance your immersion into…

  • Batman Character Analysis

    When we think of Batman, the words “hope”, “justice”, and “incorruptibility” come to mind. He is The Dark Knight, a bat vigilante who fights to keep the fictional streets of Gotham safe. He is arguably one of the greatest superheroes ever created. He fights crime and faces some of the most insane villains in comic book history. What makes him stand out from the rest is that, as Wikipedia states, “unlike most superheroes, Batman does not possess any superpowers; rather, he relies on his genius…

  • Nicholson's Nihilism In One Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest

    Nicholson’s Nihilism Partly because I’m a Batman enthusiast, I noticed, from early on in this film, that a nexus existed between Nicholson’s role as J.P. McMurphy in One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest and his later casting as the joker in Tim Burton’s 1989 Batman. In this film’s early development, we learned of McMurphy’s past: five arrests for assault and his most recent arrest for statutory rape – how joker-esque! And only an upstanding joker would find a mental institution more appealing than…

  • Psychoanalytic Analysis Of The Joker

    Intriguing heroes are plenty, villains, not so many. However, the ‘Batman’ universe gave the world a menacing yet fascinating super villain with a chalk white face, green hair, and a fear inducing Glasgow smile. Unlike the many other fictional villains who petrified the world with super powers and super weapons, this man was able to instil gut wrenching fear by virtue of his “strange” personality. It is for this very reason that the “Joker” is such a captivating and interesting character to…

  • What Is Batman's Identity

    Batman himself has two different sides that no one would be able to correlate together. When Bruce, the “normal” version of Batman is maskless, he leaves the impression of privileged white man. Bruce likes to be social, to be around people, and to party. Bruce pushes himself hard, always trying to look the best to keep the Wayne image for his parents that have passed away. This is one of the reasons why he doesn’t want anyone to find out Batman’s true identity. He keeps it very secretive,…
