This is simply kick-ass. It’s a live action stunt recreation of one of Catwoman’s fight scenes from Batman: Arkham City by Thousand Pounds Action Company. They’ve also recreated Street Fighter and Naruto fight scenes. Watch this stuntwoman takedown street thugs with impressive combos, and yes, a whip. (Comics Alliance)

Kees van Dijkhuizen, the man behind [the films of] series is back again and this time he’s spotlighting Christopher Nolan. His his sum up of Nolan’s style,
Christopher Nolan’s films have kept anyone of us on the edge of their seat. Every film is filled with secrets, surprises, twists and turns, and only a true movie mastermind could keep even the biggest film nut fooled until the very last minute. They’re films that demand a second, third and fourth viewing. Christopher Nolan is a perfect example of traditional filmmaking with modern twists, and is a fine addition to a series already filled to the brink with inspiring artists.
