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 […]

Batman: Complete Animated Series Comes to Blu-ray With Digital Copy

Ten years ago, one of the world’s favorite superhero cartoons made it to home video in a deluxe package. Batman: The Complete Animated Series was a 17-DVD set put out in 2008 to allow fans to rewatch the astounding, deco-influenced animation and the milestone-setting voice acting. Now, to keep up with changing tech, there’s a new Batman: The Complete Animated Series. The Limited Deluxe Edition will consist of the 109 episodes, originally aired from 1992-1995, remastered, on 10 Blu-ray discs. […]

The Sabrina Teaser Is Certainly Creepy!

Netflix will release The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, starring Kiernan Shipka, on October 26, just in time for Halloween. Originally planned to run on the CW as a Riverdale spin-off, the show, written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, moved to Netflix for a planned two seasons of ten episodes each. Probably a good thing, since I don’t see all of this witchiness and demon worship (see trailer below) playing on a network. Boy, Shipka looks good in the role, though!

World of Darkness: The Documentary

I’ve never played a role-playing game (RPG), but I’ve always been interested in how people respond to vampires in popular culture, so I was curious to view World of Darkness: The Documentary when offered a screening copy. It’s an hour-and-a-half documentary about Vampire: The Masquerade and White Wolf Publishing, the role-playing game company that released it. World of Darkness: The Documentary will be available in the US for streaming purchase or rental on Amazon, iTunes, and Steam on September 18. […]
