Gotham: The Complete Fourth Season

Review by KC Carlson I wouldn’t be surprised to hear that many viewers of TV’s Gotham considered its previous season as possibly a transitional one. The recent arrival here of Gotham: The Complete Fourth Season will most likely emphasize that on my second viewing. My re-watching it on Blu-Ray will provide for both crystal clear and murky and moody visual storytelling. Gotta love technology… (Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the Blu-ray I reviewed here. […]

Riverdale: The Complete Second Season

As a guilty pleasure TV show, Riverdale is more fun in big chunks, which makes the DVD format a great way to indulge. Riverdale: The Complete Second Season is out Tuesday. This season ran 22 episodes instead of the 13 of the first season, so the set is four discs. (Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a review copy of this DVD set.) This was the season where Archie (KJ Apa) became a junior mob enforcer and leader of […]

The Death of Superman

The Death of Superman cuts to the chase in the title — this is an animated retelling of the 1993 comic book crossover in which Superman, in order to save Metropolis, gets beaten to death by the alien Doomsday. It’s available on home video on Tuesday. (Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a review copy of this Blu-ray.) A number of viewers are likely too young to remember that 25-year-old media event, and the ensuing lines and collector’s edition […]

Lego DC Comics Super Heroes: Aquaman: Rage of Atlantis

The Lego DC Comics movies are always fun and funny to watch. I was looking forward to Lego DC Comics Super Heroes: Aquaman: Rage of Atlantis not just for Aquaman (voiced by Dee Bradley Baker), but for the introduction of the newest Green Lantern, Jessica Cruz (Cristina Milizia). She’s both a new character in the movie and the bonus minifigure, available with the movie for a limited time. (Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a review copy.) As shouldn’t […]

DC Super Hero Girls Go to Atlantis… Twice!

It’s been a while since we’ve had a new DC Super Hero Girls original movie, which is a shame, because they’re fun. Hero of the Year came out in 2016, followed by Intergalactic Games last year, but then they switched to making Lego versions (Brain Drain and Super-Villain High), which look odd to me. Now comes word that DC Super Hero Girls: Legends of Atlantis, a new original animated movie (72 minutes long), will be out on DVD ($19.98 list […]
