Chess Quiz is a collection of 15 chess quizzes each with 20 puzzles in them, for a total of 300 in all. The reader grades himself. If he gets 18 of the 20 right he is master strength. If he gets 16 right he is club player strength. If he gets 14 right he is amateur strength. If he gets only 10 right he is average strength. Each of the 300 problems comes from an actual game played by real players. The reader is not given any hints or clues as to what to look for. It might be mate, decisive win of material, advantage in the endgame or a surprising zugzwang. Thus, the problems are typical of what one might encounter in a real chess game. I took the quizzes myself. I usually got most of them right but I never got all of them right. A few had me stumped until I looked up the answer. I found the grading system to be fair, in ratings of Master, Club Player and Average. I strongly recommend that every chess player go through all 300 problems.

Publishing to coincide with Christopher Nolan’s third Batman movie, The Dark Knight Rises, in July 2012, Will Brooker’s new book explores Batman’s twenty-first century incarnations. Brooker’s investigation into Batman Begins and The Dark Knight uncovers the complex relationship between popular films, audiences, and producers in our age of media convergence. He addresses a myriad of questions raised by these films: did Batman Begins end when The Dark Knight began? Does its story include Burger King’s ‘Dark Whopper’, the Gotham Knight DVD, or the ‘Why So Serious’ viral marketing campaign? Is it separate from the parallel narratives of the Arkham Asylum videogame, the monthly comic books, the animated series and the graphic novels? Can the brightly campy incarnations of the Batman ever be fully repressed by The Dark Knight, or are they an intrinsic part of the character? In other words, do all of these various manifestations feed into a single Batman metanarrative?

From the growth in merchandising and product placement to the rise of the movie franchise, branding has become central to the modern blockbuster economy. In a wide-ranging analysis focusing on companies such as Disney, Dolby, Paramount, New Line and, in particular, Warner Bros., Brand Hollywood provides the first sustained examination of the will-to-brand in the contemporary movie business. Outlining changes in the marketing and media environment during the 1990s and 2000s, Paul Grainge explores how the logic of branding has propelled specific kinds of approach to the status and selling of film. Analyzing the practice of branding, the poetics of corporate logos, and the industrial politics surrounding the development of branded texts, properties and spaces - including franchises ranging from Looney Tunes to Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter to The Matrix - Grainge considers the relation of branding to the emergent principle of ‘total entertainment’. Employing an interdisciplinary method drawn from film studies, cultural studies and advertising and media studies, Brand Hollywood demonstrates the complexities of selling entertainment in the global media moment, providing a fresh and engaging perspective on branding’s significance for commercial film and the industrial culture from which it is produced.
