Deadpool DVD Release Date Announced

I am mentioning this only because I a bit surprised at how many different people saw and really enjoyed this movie. Deadpool, rated R, will be on Blu-ray and DVD on May 10, and my comic reading club wants to hold a release party. Normally, we talk about graphic memoir and women-focused adventure titles (Saga and Bitch Planet are big favorites), but those who haven’t seen this yet (like me) are intrigued, and those who have seen it want to […]

Lego DC Comics Super Heroes: Justice League: Cosmic Clash

The premise of Lego DC Comics Super Heroes: Justice League: Cosmic Clash is one many comic and superhero fans are familiar with. Brainiac is shrinking planets for his collection, and his latest target is Earth. In order to get rid of the Justice League, who are in his way, he sends the members to other time periods. This “split the team up and give them separate challenges” is classic Silver Age Justice League plotting. Combined with the amount of humor […]

Ant-Man DVD Date Announced

The more I think about Ant-Man, the more I like it. It’s been treated as a poor cousin of the Marvel movie universe, not tying into the big Avengers franchise, but that gives it the ability to operate on its own as a more stand-alone “man finds his destiny through gaining powers and learning to help others” film. And the cast was talented — Paul Rudd as the lovable loser, former thief Scott Lang; Michael Douglas as the jaded scientist […]

Avengers: Age of Ultron

We’re living in an age of gluttony when it comes to great live-action superhero projects, so I feel a bit spoiled in saying that I wasn’t terribly excited to rewatch Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, now available on home video. While the idea of a combined, over-arching Marvel universe was exciting and astounding when it came to the original Avengers movie, now, it feels like a driving force that made this film less than it could have been. Between introducing […]

Batman Unlimited: Monster Mayhem

In the goal to make more DVD movies suitable for kids — since no matter how long or often people say it’s not true, some insist on believing that superhero cartoons should always be ok for children — DC and Warner have released Batman Unlimited: Monster Mayhem. It’s a sequel to Batman Unlimited: Animal Instincts, which I haven’t seen, and a tie-in to a toy line, which accounts for the different costumes than I expected and the variety of vehicles […]

Lego DC Comics Super Heroes: Justice League: Attack of the Legion of Doom

Out next week is Lego DC Comics Super Heroes: Justice League: Attack of the Legion of Doom, a new installment in the series portraying DC characters as Lego minifigs. I’ve already written about the voice casting and posted some clips, but now, I’ve gotten a chance to check out the actual film. The first surprise was that this was an actual movie, an hour and 17 minutes long. The greater length allows for more scenes of team-building, as the Justice […]
