Dan Curtis' Dracula Blu-Ray Review


Synopsis: The definitive Count Dracula... as flesh-crawling an experience as you ve ever had. Los Angeles Times

Academy Award® winner* Jack Palance stars in this terrifying adaptation of Bram Stoker s classic vampire legend written for the screen by sci-fi/horror master Richard Matheson and produced by the legendary Dan Curtis (Dark Shadows). Palance is Count Dracula, whose centuries-old existence is threatened after he attacks the lovely Lucy Westenra (Fiona Lewis) and her fiancĂ© (Simon Ward, The Tudors) calls in famed vampire hunter Dr. Van Helsing (Nigel Davenport) to investigate.  Filmed on location in England and Yugoslavia, DAN CURTIS DRACULA has been transferred and restored in 2K High Definition from the original 35mm camera negative and presented here on Blu-Ray for the first time!

*Best Supporting Actor 1992  - City Slickers

Special Features: Interviews, Trailer, Alternate Ending


Review: There are so many versions of Dracula spanning so many decades, how do you choose one to watch?  Well, there are the classics, but there is also this fantastic adaptation from 1973 starring Jack Palance as the prince of the undead.   This blu-ray release is a really fun watch and one that I hadn't seen in decades!  It was made by Dan Curtis, of Dark Shadows fame (the show not the Burton film!).  I had all but forgotten this version until this blu-ray came out.  The film looks amazing in high-definition and its a lot spooier than I remember, I was very impressed.  This is a must-have for any horror fan!

Kevin Smith Assures us that the Batfleck Suit is Normal Bat-Colors!

From the May 16th episode of the Hollywood Babble-On Podcast

"As you may remember, I saw a photo of the Batsuit many months ago, and many people asked online, 'Is that the picture you saw?' No, that is a very cool picture, but that is not the picture I saw. They put it on a fake rooftop, and they lit it up. But it was in color, and you could see every piece of detail. So I've seen some people online go, 'Why is thisf*@#ing  suit any different than the Chris Nolan Batsuit, it's all one f*@#ing  color.' It's like, 'Dude, that's a monochrome photo. You know what that means, one chrome' ...
"That's not a representation of what the suit looks like. So what the suit looks like, and I was always kind of keeping it quiet until they revealed it, but they've revealed it. And you can kind of see, and anybody that… you've seen some people take the picture and color it online. If you want to see what this f***ing suit looks like, you just go to Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns, go to the third book, Hunt the Dark Knight…it's the exact f*@#ing outfit he's wearing."

Its Official! The title Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice

Beware the Batman draws nearly 700,000 viewers in Toonami Debut! How does that stack up?

How do the ratings for Beware the Batman on Toonami's animation block stack up?  Well, its solid, but maybe not as impressive as it sounds on first listen.   Anime shows, like Attack on Titan, Bleach and Naruto ranked far higher just a couple of hours before on the same network, and the next night when Toonami showed Tenchi Muyo GXP in the same timeslot it scored nearly the same rating.  Verdict?  Its a great spot to put the show, because people clearly enjoy vegging out and watching Toonami all weekend, its holding its own, but its not setting the network on fire.

WB Official Batman: Assault on Arkham Release Date & Info



GET READY TO ROOT FOR THE BAD GUYS IN
BATMAN: ASSAULT ON ARKHAM
AVAILABLE FROM WARNER BROS. HOME ENTERTAINMENT ON AUGUST 12, 2014!

Stellar Voice Cast Includes Kevin Conroy, Troy Baker,
Matthew Gray Gubler, CCH Pounder, Greg Ellis and Giancarlo Esposito

BURBANK, CA (May 7, 2014) – Batman, one of the world’s most valiant super heroes, faces a villainous squad of criminals in an epic battle of good vs. evil in the DC Universe Original Movie, Batman: Assault on Arkham. Set in the world of the best-selling Batman: Arkham video game series, this action-packed film takes place between the Batman: Arkham Origins and Batman: Arkham Asylum video games. Available on August 12, 2014 from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, on Blu-Ray™ Combo Pack, DVD and Digital HD, this hit is one DC Comics fans won’t want to miss.  


Gotham is in great danger when the government assembles a group of villains — code named the Suicide Squad — and forces them to break into Arkham Asylum to retrieve top secret information stolen by the Riddler.  Things take a turn for the worse when one of the Squad members (Harley Quinn) frees the Joker, who is intent on blowing up Arkham Asylum and Gotham City.  Batman must use his super hero wits and strength to thwart the wicked plans of the Joker and the Suicide Squad. 


“Batman: Assault on Arkham is a thrill-ride with everything a fan would want — a courageous super hero, depraved villains, and suspenseful plot twists,” said Mary Ellen Thomas, WBHE Vice President, Family & Animation Marketing. “Featuring voice talent from some of today’s hottest television actors, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment is proud to release this as the next DC Universe Original Movie.”
 

“Working on a new Batman story is always exciting,” said Sam Register, President, Warner Bros. Animation and Warner Digital Series. “As a fan of the Arkham video games, I know this movie is going to entertain all Batman groups, from comic book and super hero fans to the most dedicated gamer.”
 

Kevin Conroy (Batman: The Animated Series) voices Batman, and joins forces with several Hollywood greats to bring the legendary characters to life.  Adding to the celebrity-laden cast is Neal McDonough (Justified, Desperate Housewives) as Deadshot, Troy Baker (The Last of Us) as Joker, Matthew Gray Gubler (Criminal Minds) as Riddler, CCH Pounder (The Shield, Warehouse 13) as Amanda Waller, Greg Ellis (24) as Captain Boomerang, and Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad, Revolution) as Black Spider.
 

Produced by Warner Bros. Animation and DC Entertainment, Batman: Assault on Arkham is directed by Jay Oliva (Man of Steel, Justice League: War) and Ethan Spaulding (Son of Batman) from a script written by Heath Corson (Justice League: War). Sam Register (Beware the Batman, Teen Titans Go!), Benjamin Melniker (The Dark Knight Rises) and Michael Uslan (The Dark Knight Rises) serve as executive producers. James Tucker (Son of Batman) is Supervising Producer.
