The Six Best DCU Animated Movies

Posted on 12 February 2012 by Charles B. French

There’s a lot of attention about the big comic book movies coming out this summer. We’ve got The Avengers, The Amazing Spiderman, and The Dark Knight Rises, all hoping to be the biggest summer blockbuster the world has ever seen. I admit, I’m very excited and plan to see all of them, and I suspect many of you are as well. However, if you think that big-budget blockbusters are the only place to get your superhero movie fix, you’re wrong.

Since 2007 DC has released a dozen fantastic animated movies that blow many live action productions out of the water. Part of the reason these are so good is that they are based on stories that would never be filmed, either due to budgetary concerns or fear that they wouldn’t have a wide enough box-office appeal. Even if they were green-lighted, odds are that they would have so much studio interference (see Green Lantern) that the result would be a watered-down version of what could have been great.

The animated movies have given DC more freedom to produce great stories, and they are only getting better. This year will see the release of an adaption of Justice League:Doom and a two part adaptation of The Dark Knight Returns. I’m awaiting those movies just as much as the summer blockbusters, and I’m far less worried that those movies will disappoint.

For the uninitiated, I’d live to present the top six DC Animated movies and why you need to see them. (After that you should check out the other six because, really, they’re all good.)

Official Back Cover of Green Lantern Blu-Ray Offers a Few New Details!

Posted on 29 September 2011 by Christian

While we already have a bunch of details from the upcoming Blu-Ray of the Martin Campbell directed flick, a shot of the back cover shows the exact length of the extended scenes’ for Green Lantern. Is it enough to change opinions about the movie…

In a universe as vast as it is mysterious, where a small but powerful force has existed for centuries. Protectors of peace and justice, they are called the Green Lantern Corps. A brotherhood of warriors sworn to keep intergalactic order, each Green Lantern wears a ring that grants him superpowers. But when a new enemy called Parallax threatens to destroy the balance of power in the Universe, their fate and the fate of Earth lie in the hands of their newest recruit, the first human ever selected: Hal Jordan

Thanks to DCU Movie Page Twitter account, check out the shot of the Green Lantern‘s Blu-Ray back cover below:

Click on the image to enlarge

 

 

If you notice the writing on the bottom part of the cover clearly states that the extended cut is 123 minutes long, which means it only adds 9 more minutes to the original cut which was 114 minutes long. And this also means that the extended cut itself which was originally announced to be an extra 15 minutes is now only 9. Are you disappointed? Sound off in the usual spot below!


 

Starring Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively, Peter Saarsgard, Mark Strong, Angela Bassett, Tim Robbins, as well as the voice stars of Geoffrey Rush and Michael Clarke Duncan, Green Lantern is set to be released in Blu-Ray on October 14, later this year.

Brief Promo For Cancelled Wonder Woman TV Show Leaks!

Posted on 10 June 2011 by Christian

A brief promo featuring Adrianne Palicki as Wonder Woman has found it’s way online, and while it’s literally only made up of a bit of slo-mo walking and a logo, it gives us a taste of what we’re missing…

So far, we’ve seen a few stills and reviews for the cancelled Wonder Woman TV show (as well as a single official shot of Adrianne Palicki in costume and a couple of dozen set photos) and while the pilot episode has so far not emerged online for the world to see, the following promo has! Many thanks to Bleeding Cool.

Not much I know, but does this make you wish they’d given the show a chance? Would you watch the the pilot episode if it was released online? Be sure to share your thoughts in the usual place!

War of the Green Lanterns: Part 1

Posted on 12 April 2011 by TH3 No08

War of the Green Lanterns: Part 1

Sponsored by: www.comicbreak.com

Written By: Geoff Johns
Artist By: Doug Mahnke

‘War of the Green Lanterns’ ignites with part 1 of the blockbuster event that’ll burn into the summer! A malevolent force has usurped control over all the power batteries, leaving the Corps powerless except for a select few members. Now it’s up to Hal Jordan, Guy Gardner, Kyle Rayner, John Stewart and Sinestro to regain control – but can these warriors overcome their differences in time to save the universe?

“War of the Green Lanterns” is everything you’ve come to expect from a GL comic and that can be a good thing or a bad thing depending on what you are looking for.

This from GeekTyrant.com

The CW just released this new picture of Smallville’s Tom Welling wearing his new “Superman” jacket. Slowly but surely they seem to piecing his outfit together.

Red State trailer hits the interwebz…

Posted on 23 December 2010 by TH3 No08

Kevin Smith hates the press but apparently loves the interwebz cause that’s where he dropped an early teaser for his latest flick “RED STATE”. We’ve discussed on the podcast over the last few months our general feelings regarding this film and his approach to distribution and marketing of it and this trailer doesn’t really change any feelings I have for what he’s trying to do. Smith lists the Weinsteins in the credits (Harvey Boys) so I’m assuming he’s got distribution so we may not be treated to the public spectacle of a post screening auction like he promised but as long as it gets out there I guess that’s really all that matters. The trailer looks interesting, lots of action, creepy looking small town folk, and lots of random gun fire.
