Radioactive Spider Blood – Tuesday TubeWatch

Other heroes may be dark, brooding and intelligent, or invincible super-nice guys, but no one is as fun to watch as Spider-Man. More than most other super-heroes, he seems like a regular (if really intelligent) guy who is trying to juggle two lives without losing his sense of humor. I can relate to him better… Read More »

Review: Green Lantern: First Flight

With characters that have as huge of an existing storyline as Green Lantern, it’d be easy for a movie like Green Lantern: First Flight to get lost in trying to add in all the cool stuff and cameos that could be covered. That isn’t the case here. This is a lean movie. At 70 minutes,… Read More »

Wolverine movie trailer

I don’t know a whole lot about Wolverine’s origins other than what is in the X-Men movies. For some reason I never read the comics versions. I’m pretty excited to see this. Plus, it’s got Gambit. I know some people don’t like him, but he was one of my favorite X-Men from the TV cartoons.… Read More »

Hitman Monkey

Easily the funniest of these kinds of things I’ve run across… see more crazy cat pics There needs to be a Hitman Monkey comic book. A depressed monkey running around whacking people… what’s funnier than that?! “Hitman Monkey: No Funny Business” Oh, man… that would have been an awesome background character in a Tick episode.… Read More »

Follow-up review: The Prince of Egypt trailer

On further reflection there is one more thing I want to say about The Prince Of Egypt. The second trailer (included on the DVD) paints the film as a “triumph of the power of the human spirit”. In other words, they’re saying this movie shows how humans can do amazing things when they put their… Read More »

Review: Ultimate Avengers

I was really hoping this movie would be better than it was. Alas, it wasn’t. After a promising beginning, dealing with the “death” of Captain America, and setting up some multi-decade intrigue, the movie’s plot devolved into nothing more than, “here’s a character, here’s his/her power, he/she isn’t a team player, now everybody get together… Read More »

Review: Superman: Max Fleisher cartoon shorts

In 1941 and 1942, Superman showed up in some great Max Fleisher cartoons. I just picked up a Volume 1 DVD at the Dollar Store and it was a bargain. These old cartoons are great. In some ways I thought they were superior to our current cartoons. Certainly the lighting and shading of these classics… Read More »

Review: Justice League

(Originally posted Jul 31, 2005 on my older blog) I’ve been watching Justice League and Justice League Unlimited lately. This is good stuff. Mike got me hooked. I’d caught it while flipping channels from time to time, but never really followed it well, and certainly never knew the episode order. Now I’ve seen all four… Read More »
