Star Wars Rebels Season 2 Episode 15 Review – ‘The Honorable Ones’

25 February 2016 8:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Chris Cooper reviews the fifteenth episode of Star Wars Rebels season 2…

Well well well. Who would have thought that since coming back after Christmas, the strongest and most interesting episodes of Rebels would both centre on Zeb, who up to this point has really only been muscle and occasional comic relief. ‘The Honorable Ones’, further serves to flesh out his character, and make me care more about him.

Perhaps more importantly though, is how the episode portrays Agent Kallus, who for a long time now has had a seemingly personal grudge against the Lasat. In the space of 20 minutes my changed my opinion of him several times; quite a feat! Trapped with Zeb, and relying on each other to survive (drink in the frankly gorgeous McQuarrie-esque planet scape), would he live up to his name, or would he show us something we rarely see in Imperials…compassion? I’ve always »

‘Batman: Bad Blood’ Review

25 February 2016 2:01 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Jason O’Mara, Yvonne Strahovski, Stuart Allan, Sean Maher, Morena Baccarin, Steve Blum, Gaius Charles, John Dimaggio, Robin Atkin Downes, James Garrett, Ernie Hudson, Christine Lakin, Vanessa Marshall | Written by J.M. DeMatteis | Directed by Jay Oliva

Plot:

After Batman goes missing, Dick Grayson takes up his mantle as He and Damian Wayne have to protect Gotham City, while also trying to find the original Batman. Two new allies, Batwoman and Batwing arrive to help investigate Batman’s disappearance.

Verdict:

So here we are with another ‘Original’ movie from DC, who were once a Juggernaut when it came to releasing a constant stream of excellent animated movies that eclipsed the majority of DC’s live-action catalogue. But it does appear (apart from a few films like Jl: Gods and Monsters and Batman: Assault on Arkham) that things are not going to change any time soon (especially with how Justice League vs. »

Review: Batman: Bad Blood

8 February 2016 8:00 AM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

The newly integrated DC Animated Universe expands with its latest offering, Batman: Bad Blood. While Batman (Jason O’Mara) can work best as a loner, he casts a long enough shadow that somehow involves others to take up the mantle of the Bat. We’ve seen Nightwing (Sean Maher), the former first Robin, and the addition of Bruce Wayne’s son Damian (Stuart Allan) as the new Robin has added an edge.

The new animated film, out now from Warner Home Entertainment, has been sold as the major introduction of Batwoman (Yvonne Strahovski) but we also get Batwing (Gaius Charles) and at the end a cameo from Batgirl. As a result, it’s actually beginning to feel a little too busy with so many players there’s not enough time to properly service them.

The premise here has Talia (Morena Baccarin) recruiting a bunch of disparate rogues to help her break Batman. »

Blu-ray Review – Batman: Bad Blood (2016)

30 January 2016 3:45 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Batman: Bad Blood, 2016.

Directed by Jay Oliva.

Featuring the voice talents of Jason O’Mara, Sean Maher, Yvonne Strahovski, Stuart Allan, Morena Baccarin, Steve Blum, Gaius Charles, John Dimaggio, James Garrett, Ernie Hudson, Robin Atkin Downes, Vanessa Marshall, Bruce Thomas, Matthew Mercer, Jason Spisak, Travis Willingham and Kari Wahlgren.

Synopsis:

Bruce Wayne is missing. Alfred covers for him while Nightwing and Robin patrol Gotham City in his stead. And a new player, Batwoman, investigates Batman’s disappearance.

After a confrontation with a bunch of super villains, including Firefly, Killer Moth, and Tusk goes sideways, Batman (voiced by Jason O’Mara) is Mia and the bat signal in the sky is going unheeded. Gotham City heats up with more crime than usual since the assumption that the Caped Crusader is dead starts getting around on the streets. Even Alfred has to cover for Bruce Wayne’s absence at Wayne Enterprises shareholder meetings. »

Movie Review – Batman: Bad Blood (2016)

Batman: Bad Blood, 2016.

Directed by Jay Oliva.

Featuring the voice talents of Jason O’Mara, Sean Maher, Yvonne Strahovski, Stuart Allan, Morena Baccarin, Steve Blum, Gaius Charles, John Dimaggio, James Garrett, Ernie Hudson, Robin Atkin Downes, Vanessa Marshall, Bruce Thomas, Matthew Mercer, Jason Spisak, Travis Willingham and Kari Wahlgren.

Synopsis:

Bruce Wayne is missing. Alfred covers for him while Nightwing and Robin patrol Gotham City in his stead. And a new player, Batwoman, investigates Batman’s disappearance.

One of Batman’s most well-known traits in the modern era of comics is the number of sidekicks or extended members of the Bat-family he has. I’m not just speaking of the various characters who have held the Robin mantle, but Batwing, Batwoman and several Batgirls. DC’s latest animated movie has brought together most of Gotham’s protectors together after Bruce Wayne is presumed dead, leaving Gotham defenseless without the real Batman. »

'Star Wars Rebels' Season 2 Trailer Hints at 'Force Awakens' Connection

15 January 2016 11:19 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier this week, Disney Xd debuted a new preview for the second half of Star Wars Rebels Season 2, which revealed that Princess Leia will make her debut on the beloved animated series. With less than one week left until the Star Wars Rebels mid-season premiere, Disney Xd has released a new three-minute trailer, which features another look at Leia, while teasing the return of Darth Vader and Yoda. Perhaps the most interesting part of this footage is an intriguing connection to the current blockbuster Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Towards the end of this footage, Ezra Bridger (Taylor Gray) is seen wielding a new lightsaber that has the same crossguard design as Kylo Ren's (Adam Driver) lightsaber from Star Wars: The Force Awakens. It isn't the exact same weapon, though, since the blades on Ezra's saber are green and Kylo's is red, but the fact that it has the same design is certainly intriguing. »
