Product Spotlight: Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox Soundtrack CD



About the CD: La-La Land Records, Warner Bros. Animation and DC Comics present the original motion picture score to the DC Universe Animated Original Movie JUSTICE LEAGUE: THE FLASHPOINT PARADOX. Acclaimed composer Frederik Widemann (GREEN LANTERN: THE ANIMATED SERIES) seizes the opportunity to work with a live orchestra and unleashes a stupendous superhero score that propels this action-packed, fan-favorite DC Comics storyline. Fans of Widemann's GREEN LATNERN: THE ANIMATED SERIES scores will be delighted with what the composer has delivered here. Produced by the composer and MV Gerhard, and mastered by Doug Schwartz, this special release is limited to 2000 units and features liner notes from the composer and the filmmakers.

Our Take: The DC Universe animated films have been bringing adult fans a lot of joy over the past few years.  There are those of us that don't want the magic to end after an hour and a half and great soundtrack CDs like this one from the good folks at La-La Land records are just the ticket!  The music from this animated feature film is absolutely epic.  The inside liner notes feature notes from the composter and screenwriter, along with some great images from the film.  This one is limited to only 2000 copies, so I would advise picking up a copy soon!

The Mentalist: The Complete Sixth Season DVD Review

Synopsis: Armed with a list of seven suspects confirmed by the killer himself, Patrick Jane and the CBI team are closing in on the elusive serial killer while continuing to solve California's most puzzling crimes. Could Red John be a cult leader? A ghoulish forensic analyst? A super-suspicious Homeland Security Agent? Or one of four law officials, including the director of the CBI himself? The identity of the man who killed Patrick Jane's family is finally revealed in a climactic showdown - but that's not the end of the story! When the CBI is shuttered, Jane, Lisbon and the team partner with the FBI to tackle a whole new slew of mysteries... including vicious attacks on former CBI members. The manhunt is on in all 22 diabolically delightful Season Six episodes.


Review: On the surface the Mentalist is yet another crime procedure show in a sea of similar series.  However, when you dig deeper and you get into this series you see that its multi-faceted, complex and engaging.  The development of the main character, Patrick Jane, has really come along and I find myself very invested In his story.  This is a series that is completely worth owning.  The more you watch and re-watch the shows the more you catch in the way of nuances and hidden meanings and you see that there is so much going on in this series, which is part of what makes It so enjoyable. 

Special features: "Patrick Jane: Redeemed, Recovered, Restored", Deleted Scenes.

Audrey Hepburn Collection Blu-Ray Review

Audrey Hepburn Collection Blu-Ray Review

Synopsis: "Sabrina" (1954): Sabrina is charming, humorous and aglow with some of Hollywood's greatest stars. Humphrey Bogart, William Holden and Audrey Hepburn star in a Cinderella story directed by renowned filmmaker Billy Wilder (Sunset Boulevard, Some Like It Hot). Bogie and Holden are the mega-rich Larrabee brothers of Long Island. Bogie's all work, Holden's all playboy. But when Sabrina, daughter of the family's chauffeur, returns from Paris all grown up and glamorous, the stage is set for some family fireworks as the brothers fall under the spell of Hepburn's delightful charms. "Roman Holiday"(1953): Roman Holiday was nominated for ten Academy Awards, and Audrey Hepburn captured an Oscar for her portrayal of a modern-day princess rebelling against her royal obligations who explores Rome on her own. She meets Gregory Peck, an American newspaperman who, seeking an exclusive story, pretends ignorance of her true identity. But his plan falters as they fall in love. Eddie Albert contributes to the fun as Peck's carefree cameraman pal. Stylishly directed by William Wyler, this romantic comedy ranks as one of the most enjoyable films of all times. "Breakfast At Tiffany's"(1961): From the opening strains of Henry Mancini and Johnny Mercer's haunting Oscar-winning song "Moon River," you'll once again be under the alluring spell of that madcap, carefree New York playgirl known as Holly Golighty (Audrey Hepburn) in this 24-carat romantic comedy based on Truman Capote's best-selling novella. George Peppard is the struggling and "sponsored" young writer who finds himself swept into Holly's dizzying, delightfully unstructured lifestyle as she determinedly scours Manhattan for a suitable millionaire to marry. The sparkling special features on this Anniversary Edition DVD only add to the luster of director Black Edwards' timeless film classic. Patricia Neal, Buddy Ebsen, Martin Balsam and Mickey Rooney co-star: Mancini won an additional Academy Award for his enthralling musical score.

Review: There are only a few stars from years gone by that stay fresh in our minds and the charming Audrey Hepburn is definitely one of them.  This great new Blu-ray collection gives us three of her best films, Sabrina, Roman Holiday and Breakfast at Tiffany's!  These classics look amazing in high-definition...this is the first time that I've seen them that way.  We even get the option of watching each of them in black and white or color!  I really appreciated that feature.  This is a must have and a fun family friendly watch.

The special features include: "Sabrina": "Sabrina Documentary"; Photo Gallery. "Roman  Holiday": "Remembering Roman Holiday" Documentary; Restoring Roman Holiday Featurette; "Edith Head - The Paramount Years" Featurette; Photo Galleries; Teaser Trailer; Theatrical Trailer; Re-Release Trailer. "Breakfast At Tiffany's": Commentary by Producer Richard Shepherd; The Making Of A Classic; It's So Audrey: A Style Icon; Brilliance In A Blue Box; Audrey's Letter to Tiffany; Original Theatrical Trailer.

Reign: Season 1 DVD Review

Reign: Season 1 DVD Review
 


Synopsis: Ever since Mary Stuart, Queen of Scotland, was a little girl, the English have wanted her country and her crown. As a teenager, Mary is sent to France to wed its next king to save herself and her people. Waiting at the French Court is the gorgeous Prince Francis, his illegitimate half-brother Sebastian, a king on the brink of madness, a scheming queen, and the seer Nostradamus with a devastating prophecy. While royal conspiracies, sexual intrigue and mysterious dark forces lurk around every castle corner, Mary struggles to rule her heart's conflicting passions and make the right decisions as she prepares to become queen. Politics, passion and duty make for thrilling drama in all 22 royally scandalous episodes of the powerful new series, "Reign".

Review:  The CW rarely has a show that I feel is worth watching.  Amongst that shortlist is the new period drama Reign.  This show, while not necessarily historically accurate, is wildly entertaining.   One nice thing about this series being on network instead of cable is that we get a whopping 22 episodes in this first season.  The show focuses around  Mary Queen of Scots and the drama surrounding her young life.  Though the show takes place many centuries ago, there are still themes and situations that ring true today.   It has the quality of the Tudors with perhaps a little more accessibility.  The themes of love, betrayl, politics all find their way inside of this series.  I really enjoyed watching this new series and I look forward to season 2.  Get caught up with this great new DVD.

Special features: "'Reign': The Making of a Queen" - In this featurette, we'll talk with executive producers Laurie McCarthy and Brad Silberling and the cast to uncover the story of how the show came to be, why it was such an exciting story to tell, and how its makers re-shaped history to thrill a modern audience; "The Authenticity of 'Reign': Recreating the 16th Century" - From costumes to castles, an inside look at the design and style of "Reign"; Deleted Scenes.

Review: Gotham Fails To Impress



I have been a Batman fan all my life.  I've been running Legions of Gotham for 11 years and never have I had to give such a grim review of a Batman related property.

I went into Gotham with high hopes. I was looking for a dark and gritty crime drama that centers around the universe and characters that I know and love. What I got was some pretty poor acting, unnecessary character changes and and overall sense of confusion about why we even need this show at all.

I have seen other reviews criticizing Jada Pinkett Smith as Fish Mooney. In my opinion she actually delivers the best and most believable performance in the cast. I had high hopes for Donal Logue as Bullock and was very disappointed with his lackluster and rather empy performance.  I saw him play a shady creepy in Sons of Anarchy and it was amazing.  He clearly phoned this one in.  James Gordon is intense and noble, sometimes overly so, but also lacks likability.

The show tries to have a hard edge with some cursing, lesbian lovers and a few instances of blood and violence, but it comes off more like Smallville in an overcast city setting. If you stuck with Smallville through thick and thin you will have no problem with this show whatsoever. If you felt critical of Smallville at times because it was a bit hoaky and over the top, then Gotham won't be your cup of tea.

I guess my overall question is why? We haven't had Batman in a series on the air since the 1966 show.  I feel safe in saying that we're long overdue for an actual Batman show, but they seem to be determined to deny us. Why don't they think Batman needs his own series? I'm baffled by this idea. I remember back in the day they wouldn't allow Scarecrow and Ra's Al Ghul on the cartoon "The Batman", because they were due to be in Batman Begins. WB felt that viewers would become confused. Thats honestly how they feel about us, like we're all so stupid we can't tell the difference between the television and film versions of the character, thus we get Gotham..a story about everyone but Batman. Bruce is in the show, but so far he's an afterthought.  If we had already gotten an amazing Batman show I would say sure, give us a prequel..let us see how it all began, but we haven't even gotten that yet.

I love these characters, but I only love them in relation to their interactions with Batman. I don't care about James Gordon, new cop in town...I care about James Gordon, new cop in town that will work with Batman. The gap in time before that happens just isn't that interesting to me. I will continue to tune in and hope for the best. Smallville did get better the last few seasons, but that took a decade.  This show might have flown previously, but next to epic television ventures like Arrow, it just pales in comparison.

Did you know that Subway has six collectible kids meal bags featuring the upcoming Star Wars cartoon Star Wars: Galaxy? 

Bruce Timm Justice League Toon to be 3-Part Machinima Web Series!

This one is coming in 2015 as a three-part web episode series just before Batman v Superman debuts in theaters!  Bruce W. Timm and Alan Burnett are back together again!  Glory days Bat-Fans...glory days.

In the first programming collaboration since Warner Bros.’ investment in Machinima earlier this year, it was announced today that Machinima has greenlit the new animated shortform series “Justice League: Gods and Monsters Chronicles,” from Bruce Timm and Alan Burnett (both producers on “Batman: The Animated Series”). The digital series is based on Justice League: Gods & Monsters, an original animated film executive produced by Timm and co-produced by Burnett that will be released by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment later in 2015. “Chronicles” will focus on alternate versions of Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman.

“Ever since we announced the Warner Bros. strategic investment, we have been looking for a new and exciting way to tap into the company’s unmatched content. With ‘Justice League: Gods and Monsters Chronicles,’ Machinima will be the very first place fans can experience a new vision for DC Comics’ beloved Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman characters. In addition, we have built a first-of-its-kind package for brands to engage with these characters to reach Machinima’s elusive audience,” said Chad Gutstein, Machinma’s CEO.

“Justice League: Gods and Monsters Chronicles” marks the first project from Warner Bros.’ newly-formed digital content production unit, headed up by Sam Register, President, Warner Bros. Animation and Warner Digital Series.

Sam Register said: “We couldn’t be happier to be announcing our first new digital series today, and we’re even more excited that it’s a collaboration with such accomplished storytellers as Bruce Timm and Alan Burnett, who have been responsible for some of the most innovative and creative DC Universe projects. We can’t wait for fans to have a chance to see the world they have created when ‘Justice League: Gods and Monsters Chronicles’ debuts on Machinima next year.”

“We are committed to delivering DC Entertainment’s extensive line-up of world-class characters and stories to audiences across all platforms and formats,” stated DC Entertainment President Diane Nelson. “’Justice League: Gods and Monsters Chronicles’ is an exciting opportunity to bring alternate versions of DC Comics’ iconic Justice League characters to Machinima, and we look forward to bringing this new animated shortform series to life with our partners across Warner Bros.”

“Justice League: Gods and Monsters Chronicles” explores a newly conceived reality in the DC Universe where Justice League members Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman are much darker versions of the Super Heroes that people think they know. The episodes are expected to debut on Machinima in spring 2015, weeks before the launch of the film.

Arrow Season 2 Blu-Ray Review

Arrow Season 2 Blu-Ray Review
 


Synopsis: Starling City has been torn apart by the Undertaking, so the need for the hooded vigilante - now known as "The Arrow" - is more urgent than ever in the explosive second season of the hit action series based on DC Comics' "Green Arrow". After retreating to the island on which he was once stranded, Oliver Queen returns to protect his mother, sister and besieged company, but comes to realize that allies and enemies have switched sides, and the stranglehold of evil on family, friends and city is diabolically linked to his fateful shipwreck. A once-tight comrade-at-arms and a strength-enhancing, yet mind-warping serum may prove to be the mightiest adversaries "The Arrow" has ever encountered. Can justice find its target in this breathlessly exciting, 23-episode Season Two? Or will all fall before the fury of Deathstroke.

Review:  Arrow began strong with the first season, but this second season was really the test of whether or not the show could pull together and move past the initial concept with the huge finale.  Not only did Arrow move forward, but it improved upon itself!  This is the first superhero show that I would recommend to anyone..these guys do it right!   This is one of my favorite shows and the second season amps it up with the impending confrontation with Slade and tons of twists turns and reveals.  Each and every episode is worth watching and builds the ongoing narrative to the epic finale that has us begging for season three!

Special features: Three New Featurettes: "From Vigilante to 'Green Arrow'" - Documentary highlighting Oliver Queen's journey from fighting injustices to becoming Sterling City's accepted savior; "How Did They Do That?! Action & FX" - Explores how Season 2 has raised the bar for action and FX; showing how the creators can make anything the writers dream up come to life; "Wirework: The Impossible Moves of Arrow" - See how the intense and elaborate fight sequences are shot for maximum realism; Episode Commentary; Deleted Scenes; Gag Reel.

The Originals: Season 1 Blu-Ray Review

Synopsis: This sexy and thrilling new series from "The Vampire Diaries'" executive producer centers on the Original vampire family and the dangerous vampire/werewolf hybrid, Klaus (Joseph Morgan), who returns to the magical melting pot that is the French Quarter of New Orleans - a town he helped build centuries ago. Acting on a mysterious tip that a plot is brewing against him, Klaus' questions lead him to his diabolical former protege, Marcel (Charles Michael Davis), a charismatic vampire with total control over the human and supernatural inhabitants of the city.

Review:  The Originals is a spinoff of the hit CW show the Vampire Diaries.  I don't really care that much for the Vampire Diaries, but I enjoy a good vampire film/show, so I gave this one a try and I was very impressed with how much more in depth the narrative was and how much more seriously the subject matter was taken.  I found this one to be very enjoyable and certainly worth checking out.
