DC NEW FRONTIER ANIMATED MOVIE review





Just finished watching the new direct to DVD animated movie. First off, I have not read the entire original story so my review will be through the eyes of a newbie not on whether its a good adaptation of the comics.



SPOILERS....



I liked this movie a lot. The animation is perfect and just highlights how much Darwyn Cooke's art style supports the translation. I wish the introduction to the characters and situations was a little more clearly defined. I… Continue

Mike reviews Jumper (the prequel GN)





Jumper Jumpscars GN



Written: Nunzio Defilippis & Christina Weir



Drawn: Brian Hurtt



Planning on seeing movie -- B+

Not going to set movie -- C-





This review is being written before I have seen the movie. It will be interesting to look back afterwards and see if my thoughts change. From the trailers it seems that the Jumper (Hayden Christensen) is the protagonist. The questions are.. is he good or bad? and who is… Continue

RAMBO rules!



I am definitely a fan of the first 3 Rambo movies. While First Blood was a very small movie that snuck a vietnam message into a nice vengeance flick, parts II and III can be ranked right on top of the jingoistic movie scale. Both movies did have a message, missing MIA's in vietnam and the Soviet occupation of Afganistan but obviously had no basis in any violent warfare reality. The ending of Rambo III was particularly disappointing as helicopter vs… Continue

Dragonlance movie equals disappointed



Big fan of the Dragonlance novels. I thought they were tailor made for movies. I was alittle disappointed they got the direct to animation treatment as knockoffs like Eragon get live action (this movie probably put the nail in the coffin). Animation does allow more action, so I was hopeful. It only takes the cover art to let me know I am going to have problems. Low budget seems the name of this game, I disliked it quite a bit. In addition to looking too saturday morning cartoony they… Continue

Cloverfield or "why I hate the bomb"



SPOILERRIFIC People





First off, too dispel any notions that I am just in the mood to bitch about movies. This movie is very well made. You do get to see the monster in all its glory. Multiple times from multiple angles. The interactions in the background as the characters run through the city are so real I can't tell how they did it nor do I want too. As a movie however I felt it lacked a focus. The concept of a giant monster movie… Continue
