Is it a bird, is it a plane, is it Batman? No its Episode 44! Susan and Gemma from Hayley and Ruth: Two Star return to review Birdman or The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance. Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s Award-winning 2014 black comedy starring everyone’s favourite Batman, Michael Keaton. Birdman is the other film about drumming that came out in 2014 (the other was Whiplash), well it features drumming and filmed to appear as one sequence. If the prospect of Michael Keaton wondering around Times Square in his tight whiteys doesn’t get you interested, we honestly don’t know what will! Featuring a performance from Keaton that balances comedy with sadness so perfectly its a tragedy in itself it didn’t win the Oscar. Supported by fantastic performances from Emma Stone, Naomi Watts, Amy Ryan and Edward Norton (in his pants), more comedy please Ed. Scores The recommendability was really really high and overall Birdman scores 4.1. Its no Tootsie but we still recommend it, despite the lack of love from Twitter. It would have been higher but Kobi gave it a 2 for small screen score. Boooooooo! [supsystic-tables id='46'] What do you guys think? Have you seen Birdman? What did you think?
