The Barbershop Movie Review hung up its scissors in early November 2012. It will no longer be seen on KSBW on the Central Coast.

This site features most of the movies we reviewed during our 18-year run. While new reviews are not being aired or posted, you may still find this site helpful selecting what to watch on video or via downloads.

Past reviews are listed in alphabetical order here.

Thanks to everyone who watched or read our reviews. It was fun!

The Dark Knight Rises Batman film came out fresh and on the mark in all departments.

Even the new bad guy is really evil and a menace.

I'm not getting into the main story but all I can say is, WOW!

It starts off using live stunt effects, making your palms sweat along with a adrenalin rush, preparing you for the return of Batman, which is handled nicely.

Batman was MY superhero in my younger years and now, and leaving the theater it looks like he still is. 
Eight years after his psychological battle with the Joker (and the death of Harvey Dent), Batman must leave his self-imposed exile to battle Gotham's newest evil overlord, Bane.

Meanwhile, Batman's heart is smitten by a visit from a attractive cat-burgler.

Bigger, badder, and noisier than the first two installments, it sets itself up for a spinoff series -- but what it makes up in darkness, it losers in spirit -- ending in a incoherent whimper.
The Dark Knight Rises is the final termination of a journey of the three Batman movies, which were so carefully thought out, rebooted, re-imagined, and reinvigorated over the past 7 years.

This film is the longest, darkest, and most skillful of the three.

There is a long wait before the caped crusader makes his appearance, but the time length is justified.

I thought the last 50 minutes was simply spectacular comic book entertainment.

In other words, this is a Batman account of imaginary happenings for an after 9/11 age of anxiety, morally split between the best of times and the worst of times.
