Super Friends Season One Volume Two [Rapid Review]

Posted 10 years ago by Television

Heads up Super Friends fans, Season One Volume Two is out on DVD featuring eight more episodes of the original 1973 cartoon. Since this show was before my time, I wasn’t aware there had been so many different versions of it throughout the years, from The All-New Super Friends Hour to the Challenge of the Super Friends (and even some lost episodes). This DVD set continues the original series where the Season One Volume One set left off.

Posted 10 years ago by Television

Superman The Animated Series

Out on DVD today is one of my favorite cartoons from the 90s, if not my all time favorite; Superman: The Animated Series. I’ve always been a huge Superman fan, and when the Batman crew decided to take on the Man of Steel, I knew it was going to be the best adaptation of the character yet.

Superman: The Complete Animated Series is a massive 7-disc DVD set from Warner Bros. that contains all 55 episodes of the show, with a few bonus features spread throughout the discs. You probably know if you’re a fan of this show or not, and if you don’t own any of the previous DVDs, I’d say you definitely need to pick this one up.

Superman/Batman: Public Enemies Blu-ray Review

Box Art

One word review: Awesome. For the long review, keep reading.

Superman/Batman: Public Enemies is the latest DVD/Blu-ray in the DC Universe animated line, and it is bar far the best they have put out yet (in my opinion, but I haven’t seen Wonder Woman yet). Before I get too deep in the review, let me give you some perspective. I was a very mild comic fan growing up, mainly just reading Wizard magazine and the occasional comic. I had graphic novels and read most of the classics, but was/am in no way a comic authority. Although I’ve always loved the art of Ed McGuinness, I never got around to reading Public Enemies.

That being said, I freaking loved this movie. Warner Bros. was kind enough to send me a copy of the movie on Blu-ray to review, so that’s what I’ll be talking about, but if you’re still into regular DVDs, everything but the HD and a couple extra Justice League episodes will be the same for you.

Superman/Batman: Public Enemies Looks Awesome

Posted 11 years ago by Movies

I don’t know about you, but I think this looks awesome. I love the style, and I’m super pumped about he cast. Tim Daly is back as Superman, Kevin Conroy as Batman, and Clancy Brown as Lex Luthor. I haven’t read the comic, so it’ll all be new to me when I watch it. All I know is that a ton of superheroes all try to claim a bounty on Superman and Batman. That’s about all I need to know.

Superman/Batman: Public Enemies comes out on September 29th on DVD and Blu-ray.
