It is a truth, universally acknowledged, that if The Dark Knight had been made in the 1920s, John Gilbert should have played Batman. Welcome to my fictional world of modern blockbusters in the silent era!
As a site ages and grows, older content tends to get pushed to the background and so I thought I would share some oldies but goodies that I made a while ago. It all started with this poster:

Update: What about social media sharing? Sure thing! Be sure to include a link back to me and thanks for spreading the word!
