Iron Man DVD Announced

I’m so excited! We’re getting a deluxe Iron Man DVD sooner than I expected! The 2-disc Ultimate Edition will be available on September 30 at a list price of $39.99. There’s also a single-disc edition for $29.99. I like the single-disc cover better, myself, but that’s because you can see Downey’s face, and I’ve become a fangirl. The single disc has the movie with deleted scenes. The ultimate edition has a second bonus disc that includes a six-part featurette called […]

Wonder Woman Original Animation Trailer

Out of the various original animation DVDs Warner Bros. has done, this is going to be my favorite, I can tell. The voice talent is amazing: not only are Keri Russell (Waitress, Felicity) and Nathan Fillion (Firefly, Waitress) the leads, but Oliver Platt is the voice of Hades; Rosario Dawson is another Amazon; and Alfred Molina is Ares (making for some odd crossover potential, since he was also the bad guy in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2). Wonder Woman is due out […]

Dark Knight Sets Box Office Record

The new Batman movie, The Dark Knight, set a new box office record, according to the New York Times. Warner estimates that the film made $155.3 million over the three-day weekend, beating the previous record-holder, Spider-Man 3, which made $151.1 million. $18.5 million came from the midnight showings, which were so popular that they scheduled more after the first ones sold out. Imax showings, which cost more for an average ticket, may have also helped the movie set a record. […]

Batman: Gotham Knight

Review by KC Carlson and Ed Sizemore [A note from KC: When Johanna asked me to review the new Batman: Gotham Knight animated DVD, it didn’t take me long to realize that I was in over my head. Although the history of American animation is kind of a hobby of mine, I have only a very limited scope of what is going on in the rapidly growing world of anime. Sadly, except for the end credits of the DVD, the […]

Batman Begins

KC wants to go see The Dark Knight soon, before we hear too much about it. I’m not really interested — I can’t see clips without thinking how tragic it was to lose Heath Ledger — but everyone expects me to see it, and I want to keep him company. (We’ll see Mamma Mia! first, though.) I mention this only to explain why I finally watched Batman Begins — it was necessary homework. It was pretty much what I expected. […]

Birds of Prey

I’m surprised to see Birds of Prey out on DVD, since I discovered recently that few people remembered it. It ran only 13 episodes in 2002 on the WB, which may have been part of the problem — there wasn’t a WB affiliate in our city at that point, for instance. And it didn’t have the popularity among teens (demographic appeal) that protects other low-rated WB shows. Actually, I’m having a hard time figuring out who the target audience for […]

The Middleman

I know I’m about a month late, but that’s why I love TiVo. I just got a chance to start catching up on episodes of the Middleman TV show airing on ABC Family. I’d tried the first comic issue back when it was a free taste, and I enjoyed it, but I never kept up with it. I’m glad I checked this out. It stars newcomer Natalie Morales as Wendy Watson (or “Dubbie”) and Matt Keeslar as the square-jawed, straight-edge […]

Honey and Clover (Movie DVD)

I’d been putting off watching the Honey and Clover DVD because I enjoyed the live-action TV series so much. I feared I risked becoming a little tired of the story, too, seeing it a third time. On the positive side, the experiences are very different, so I wasn’t bored with repetition. For one thing, the movie opens with a large group of people instead of just a few. This continues through the film, with there being lots more people around […]
