Last year fans of comic books and cartoons based on comic books lost a great storyteller far too early with the untimely death of Dwayne McDuffie. This week, we have been given a gift: Justice League: Doom, Dwayne's last work.

DVD MOVIE REVIEW: Batman: Year One

Wil Avitt's picture

Wow. To be honest, that pretty much sums it up. I'm sitting here writing this as the end credits are rolling, and I'm finding myself at a loss for all words except, wow. I'm so at a loss for words that I really don't even know how to begin this review. I'm at a loss for words, of course, because the movie was that good. Very seldom am I blown away by a movie, but blown away truly is an apt description of the feeling this movie left me with.

DVD MOVIE REVIEW: Paul (Unrated Version)

Wil Avitt's picture

Paul is the latest opus from British comedy duo Simon Pegg and Nick Frost (Hot Fuzz, Shaun of the Dead). It tells the story of two nerds from England on holiday from England to attend Comi-Con, where they meet their favorite comic artist, Adam Shadowchild (who struck me as being quite similar and possibly based on Marv Wolfman, who wasn't the most inviting person I've ever met at a convention) and travel the USA, visiting important UFO sites like Area 51 and Roswell, New Mexico.

DVD MOVIE REVIEW: Sucker Punch (At Long Last!)

First of all, I would like to apologize for the lateness of this review. I really tried to get to it in the theaters, but I had just gotten the job and it just didn't get got. In the future, if I miss a movie during its theatrical run I will get it on dvd, but I'm gonna try really hard not to do that.

DVD MOVIE REVIEW: Green Lantern: Emerald Knights

Wil Avitt's picture

Green Lantern: Emerald Knights is the DCU Animated Original Movie released on Tuesday to tie-in to the Green Lantern feature film coming out June 17th. It is very similar in format to the Batman: Gotham Knight animated movie (which was also a feature film tie-in for The Dark Knight) in that it is an anthology of several short subjects. It goes one better than Batman: Gotham Knight because it is actually a coherent story, which features several flashbacks. Batman: Gotham Knight was supposed to have some cohesion, but I didn't see it. This one really has cohesion, and I appreciate that.

MOVIE REVIEWS: “Green Lantern: First Flight (2009)

sysadmin 2.0's picture

The DC Comics direct to DVD animated spectaculars continue with the origin of Green Lantern. "Wait!" you say, "Didn't we just see the origin of Green Lantern two movies ago in 'Justice League:The New Frontier'"? Well, yes we did. And no we didn't....

(I'm going to try to make this as 'Spoiler Light' as possible, so I'm going to gloss a bit over the traditional Republibot Play by Play)

There are still spoilers, but I try to keep the particulars obscured...

DVD MOVIE REVIEW: Battlestar Galactica: “The Plan” (2009)

Republibot 3.0's picture

If you’ve ever wondered why it is that I always end up with the short straw around here, and end up reviewing the RDM Galactica, a show I’ve loved and been betrayed by, well, so have I. It’s not particularly germane to the review itself, but as this is probably my last opportunity to explain, the bottom line is this: As an 11 year old, I was obsessive about the original Galactica. I dreaded the remake, and hated the pilot for reasons that I still think are valid. Our Own Republibot 2.0, however, raved about the series every week during its first season, and cajoled me to watch it.

DVD MOVIE REVIEW: “Futurama; The Beast With A Billion Backs.” (2008)

Republibot 3.0's picture

My review takes the form of an actual IM Transcript from the day after I saw it. The names have been changed to protect the guilty. Spoilers abound because no one ever watches the stuff I review anyway, and on a turd like this, I couldn’t give less of a damn if I tried.
Me says:
I did not like the new Futurama "Movie" (The 2nd one)
You says:
how bad was it?
Me says:
Just not funny. Very scattershot and disjointed, compared to the previous one, which was brilliant. Kinda' repulsive, too.
You says:
So, the concept out of steam, or just a poorly executed outing?
Me says:
