20 years ago, there was a travesty of a movie released that put the final nail in the Batman franchise until Christopher Nolan and Christian Bale resurrected it to perfection. The travesty was Batman and Robin. You know, the one with George Clooney as Batman and Arnold Schwarzenegger as Mr. Freeze. I still remember going to see it with one of my oldest and best friends and then after it was over being very disappointed. The thing that I always think about most when this movie comes up is, the inclusion of 2 wonderful songs by The Smashing Pumpkins, “The End is the Beginning is the End,” and “The Beginning is the End is the Beginning.” Those songs still get me every time, especially “The Beginning is the End is the Beginning.” Something else that is interesting about these songs, back in 2009 when Watchmen was released, “The Beginning is the End is the Beginning” found new life as it was the theme for the trailer for the film.
