 455. Anthropoid (2016)


Two agents parachute into rural Czechoslovakia in winter of 1941; Jozef Gabčík (Cillian Murphy) and Jan Kubiš (Jamie Dornan) have been given a mission to assassinate Reinhard Heydrich, head of NAZI forces in the region. Anthropoid is a gritty examination of the operation, detailing the violent and short lives of those who dared to plot against the NAZIs.  The movie is a little short on character development, but Dornan and Murphy carry a lot of dramatic weight through the heavily expository screenplay. There’s more than enough to recommend here, even if it isn’t quite as impactful as it might have been.

456. Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders (2016)


Adam West and Burt Ward return in their classic roles as Batman & Robin. This direct to streaming animated feature brings back the humor and campy creativity of the 1960s TV series.  The story, much like the stories from the original show, is a lot of hooey.  But that’s kind of the point, and big laughs abound for those who relish in a little nostalgia. The animation is clearly low-budget, but that playssecond-fiddle to getting a chance to hear the original dynamic duo one more time.

About Oberst von Berauscht

Oberst Von Berauscht once retained the services of a Gypsy to imbue in him the ability to accurately describe the artistic qualities of a film up to seven decimal points. To maintain this unique skill, he must feast on the blood of a virgin every Harvest Moon, or failing that (and he usually does), he can also make a dog do that thing they do where they twist their heads slightly (you know, when they're confused about something) at least a few times a week. I've gotten way off track here... The point is, Oberst is one of the website's founders, so... yeah
