‘Superman’ #41 fails to leap tall buildings in a single bound

24 June 2015 10:09 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Superman #41

Written by Gene Luen Yang

Penciled by John Romita Jr.

Inked by Klaus Janson

Colored by Dean White

Published by DC Comics

At this year’s Free Comic Book Day, DC Comics dropped a big bombshell: Lois Lane knows Superman’s secret identity and has outed him to the world. The effects of Superman having a public identity have begun to be explored in the loosely connected “Truth” storyline as seen in Action Comics, Batman/Superman, and Superman/Wonder Woman. Finally, Superman  #41 where writer Gene Luen Yang of American Born Chinese and Avatar: The Last Airbender fame and veteran penciler John Romita Jr. will show the “how” of the exposure of Superman’s identity by Lois Lane.

The plot of Superman #41 mostly deals with Clark Kent the journalist with Superman as a counter measure to get him and intrepid photographer Jimmy Olsen out of tough spots, like investigating the »

The Last Airbender movie - what went wrong?

7 June 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We look back at M Night Shyamalan's much-vilified fantasy movie, and ask if anything could have saved it...

The Last Airbender is an agonizing experience in every category I can think of and others still waiting to be invented.”

So began Roger Ebert's review of The Last Airbender. It sounds harsh, but Ebert's half-star verdict was fairly representative of the tidal wave of criticism that engulfed director M. Night Shyamalan's most expensive and, ultimately, most derided film yet.

But unlike other misfires from Shyamalan, this wasn't based on his own original idea. It was the first of a planned trilogy based on the beloved Nickelodeon series Avatar: The Last Airbender, which was hugely acclaimed for its visual sense, engrossing storytelling and lively, vibrant characters. What went wrong? It's almost harder to try and figure out what, if anything, went right.

The series, created by Michael Dante Dimartino and Bryan Konietzko, »

How Malcolm in the Middle Did the Clip Show Right

4 February 2015 10:33 AM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Ahh, the clip show. The bane of scripted television, the clip show is often a signal of two things on a television show: creative exhaustion and/or budgetary restrictions. It often makes for lazily-framed episodes with the main cast “reflecting” on events of the past – Friends was notorious for it, airing six of them (that’s right, six) throughout their ten-season run, with only one (season nine’s “The One With Christmas in Tulsa,” which pushes Chandler into his final interesting solo arc) providing any reason for existence. Often, the best “clip show” episodes are episodes that aren’t actually clip shows; Avatar: The Last Airbender‘s third season episode “The Fire Emblem Players” allowed for the same kind of reflective tone as most clip shows, but did so by having actors play out exaggerated versions of their stories on stage, adding texture to the culture of Avatar and providing »

Element-ary, my dear: Catching up on 'Avatar' and 'The Legend of Korra'

30 January 2015 11:10 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Even though a large part of my job is guiding people to TV shows they might find interesting, I rarely find it easy to point my own kids to things I think they should watch — or, better, to things we can watch together. There's too much good adult TV for me to keep track of these days, so I'm virtually lost when it comes to children's programming. Every now and then I'll stumble into something current and fun, like "Phineas & Ferb," or I'll pick out a vintage show that seems kid-safe(*), but they often want to watch the things their friends are watching, or just rewatch the same episode or even scene a thousand times in a row. (I can't swear to it, but I'm pretty sure the two kids spent a week at home where the only words they said to each other were, "Is mayonnaise an instrument?") And »

Batman Vs. Robin Blu-ray cover art and special features revealed

22 January 2015 7:32 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Over the weekend we got our first trailer for the upcoming DC Universe Animated Original Movie Batman Vs. Robin [watch it here], and now Warner Bros. has unveiled the Blu-ray cover art, along with the list of special features (which includes a sneak peek of Bruce Timm’s Justice League: Gods and Monsters)…

Batman vs. Robin Blu-ray and Blu-ray Deluxe Edition contain the following special features:

-Gotham’s City Secret: The Mythic Court of Owls – The Court of Owls is the secret society that directly connects the past of Gotham to the current city. Are they silent guardians that are the noble benefactors or are they the malevolent force that manipulates a city toward their grand design?

-Talons of the Owl – If the Owls are the masterminds, their instruments of destruction are their assassins. Appropriately called The Talons, these warriors are designed to carry out the will of the Owls.

The Legend of Korra: Gender Dynamics and Complex Characters

17 January 2015 4:00 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

It’s tricky to critique or even analyze a show like The Legend of Korra, the follow-up to the hugely successful Avatar: The Last Airbender which had a more tumultuous run than its predecessor, to say the least. The show’s behind the scenes issues are notorious, with episode leakages and a move to online distribution that was made worse by Nickelodeon’s continued slashing of the series’ budget. Given all of these issues, and probably many more, it would be a shock if the show was even passable. And The Legend of Korra is much more than passable.

The show’s end is still a recent memory and it goes without saying that its final moments are some of its most powerful and uplifting, considered by some a triumph for both the Lgbt and feminist communities. Korra’s social messages are not just evident as the series comes to a close, »

Voice cast for Batman Vs. Robin announced, includes “Weird Al” Yankovic

14 January 2015 2:57 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Two iconic facets of geekdom will collide in 2015. No, I’m not talking about the newest Avengers team-up or rumors of Spider-Man joining the McU. I’m talking about Batman going head-to-head with “Weird Al” Yankovic.

The voice cast for the upcoming DC Universe Original Animated Movie, Batman Vs. Robin, has been revealed. The film is a sequel to last year’s Son of Batman, and as the title would suggest will pit Bruce Wayne against his son, Damian and be partially inspired by the New 52 Batman: Court of Owls storyline from Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo.

Son of Batman voice actors Jason O’Mara, Stuart Allan, Sean Maher and David McCallum will reprise their roles of Bruce, Damian, Dick Grayson and Alfred, respectively. They’re joined by Jeremy Sisto (Six Feet Under) as Talon, a nearly invincible assassin from the Court of Owls, Grey Griffin (Avatar: The Last Airbender) as Samantha, »
