It’s been a hectic month. A fun month, but a hectic month.
We celebrated the 75th birthday of DC Comics with a week reviewing the still rather young medium.
The twin releases of Alice in Wonderland and Shutter Island got us pondering if we gave established directors like Scorsese and Burton too much kudos.
