Another Warner Streaming Service Shut Down – And This One Hurts

Continuing the pattern of Warner streaming services being shut down, the latest announcement is that FilmStruck will end next month. The move appeared to be the latest by WarnerMedia, under AT&T’s ownership, to streamline operations by cutting niche-oriented business ventures. Two sources familiar with the decision said the plan to kill FilmStruck was made prior to AT&T’s closing the Time Warner deal; in any case, the strategy aligns with the new WarnerMedia blueprint to shift resources to mass-market entertainment services.

A Warner Streaming Service Shut Down by New Owner

The glory days of video streaming, where one or two services could get you all you wanted to watch, may be coming to an end as more companies seek to monetize their own content. Now that AT&T owns Time Warner, they are shutting down DramaFever, a service dedicated to Korean drama and other Asian programming that launched in 2009 and was acquired by Warner in 2016. (This comes after the same division shut down Warner Archive Instant earlier this year.) […]

Constantine: City of Demons: The Movie

The newest original DC universe animated movie is a kind of followup to Justice League Dark, since it stars John Constantine and explores magic and demons, but Constantine: City of Demons: The Movie is probably better seen as a prequel or even an origin story. There are no superheroes here, just a lot of demons and gore. (Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free Blu-ray review copy. My opinions are mine. Constantine was created by, according to the […]

DC Super Hero Girls: Legends of Atlantis

DC Super Hero Girls: Legends of Atlantis, the newest original animated movie, is terrific, inspiring adventure for kids of all ages! (Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me a free review copy.) It begins with a charming prologue where a young Wonder Woman, before she’s left Themyscira, is playing on the beach with her kanga Jumpa. (The pet is kind of like a super-intelligent horse, with obvious personality, but shaped like a kangaroo. Oddly, the hero refers to herself as “Princess […]

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow: The Complete Third Season

Review by KC Carlson DC’s Legends of Tomorrow remains my favorite of the four “Arrowverse” shows (the others are Arrow, The Flash, and Supergirl), with its odd collection of mostly broken-down characters rotating in and out, and its constant feeling of the whole thing flying apart in pieces at any given moment. Their motto has now become, “Sometimes we screw things up for the better,” which captures both the optimism and confusion of the endeavor. This season was no exception, […]

Supergirl: The Complete Third Season

Review by KC Carlson I unfortunately had a lot of issues with Supergirl: The Complete Third Season. Those of you who remember me from a previous life as an editor for DC Comics (hired specifically to edit The Legion of Super-Heroes, among other things) can probably guess where this is going. I wasn’t crazy about a lot of things regarding the Legion’s storyline. (Like how three characters can be a Legion of anything!?) But I do have to say that […]
