click the title above to read the full review...

The LEGO Movie: Everything is Awesome Edition (Blu-ray + DVD + UltraViolet Combo Pack + Exclusive Minifigure + Exclusive Content + Bonus Blu-ray 3D) Review
 


Synopsis: An ordinary LEGO minifigure, mistakenly thought to be the extraordinary MasterBuilder, is recruited to join a quest to stop an evil LEGO tyrant from gluing the universe together. Includes 3D blu-ray, 2D blu-ray, 2D DVD, digital HD ultraviolet and exclusive minifigurine.

Review: There are few things as glorious as a Lego feature film.  If you follow animation you know that there have been a few great Lego releases, including Star Wars and Dc Comics.  These are really fun, but very brief mini-releases.  This full length film is a win for adults and kids alike.  This set comes with the DVD, 2D Blu-Ray and even the 3D version of the film!  Also, a great Lego minifigure of the movie character Vitruvius!  This is the ultimate edition of the film, to be sure!  The movie itself is a great mixture of fun, adventure and feeling.  Everyone in our household adores it, from ages 4 all the way to 34!  This one is a great buy for the entire family and a must-have for fun summertime watching!  Fair warning, the song "Everything is Awesome" will be stuck in your head from then on.

Interest Range: Animation, Lego

300: Rise of an Empire (Blu-ray + DVD + Digital HD UltraViolet Combo Pack) Review

click the title above to read the full review...

300: Rise of an Empire (Blu-ray + DVD + Digital HD UltraViolet Combo Pack) Review

Synopsis: 300: Rise of an Empire,” told in the breathtaking visual style of the blockbuster “300,” is a new chapter of the epic saga, which takes the action to a new battlefield—the sea. The story pits the Greek general Themistokles against the massive invading Persian forces, ruled by the mortal-turned-god Xerxes, and led by Artemisia, the vengeful commander of the Persian navy.  Knowing his only hope of defeating the overwhelming Persian armada will be to unite all of Greece, Themistokles ultimately leads the charge that will change the course of the war.

Review: This is the sequel to the hit adventure fantasy film 300.  I actually enjoyed this film more than the first one, for a few reasons.  Firstly, a new director...I'm not a Zack Snyder fan whatsoever.  Next, the effects were toned down a bit from the first one.  The story in this one is a little prequel and a also some events that happen at the same time as the events in 300.  This was surprisingly fun for a sequel and I would actually recommend it to anyone!

Interest Range: Action

Is "Batman Unlimited" the Next Batman Cartoon?

This banner showed up at the licensing expo.  The image is certainly done in an animation style and looks to possibly be the next Batman cartoon.  Obviously this one is very inspired by Mattel toys.  Thoughts?

Legendary Voice Casey Kasem dead at 82 (Super Friends, Batman & Scooby-Doo)

Casey Kasem has passed away.  Batman fans know Casey from his recurring role as Robin in both the Scooby Doo movies that feature Batman and Robin and the various Super Friends series.   Our condolances to his family and friends.  I had the pleasure of interviewing Casey over the phone years back about his role as Robin and it was such a thrill to hear that voice come over the other end of the phone.  He was so generous and pleasant to speak to.  I'm certain he will be missed.
