Review: Justice League: Throne of Atlantis – Commemorative Edition

  • Comicmix
In case you missed it, Aquaman opens December 21 and the early buzz is good. This will be his solo feature film, but he took front and center in 2015’s animated feature, Justice League: Throne of Atlantis, loosely based on the story arc that ran in Justice League and Aquaman, back when Geoff Johns was writing both series.

We reviewed the release back then and found Heath Corson’s script adaptation to be lacking in heart, eschewing characterization over mindless action.

To capitalize on interest in the Sea King, Warner Home Entertainment has released a commemorative edition that includes the complete film and the original extras: Villains of the Deep (12:00), Scoring Atlantis: The Sound of the Deep (30:00), Robin and Nightwing Bonus Sequence (4:00), and the 2014 NY Comic-Con Panel (27:00). Rounding things out, DC Comics Vault (83 minutes) offers up four episodes: “Aquaman’s Outrageous Adventure!” and “Evil Under the Sea!

Supergirl Season 4 Episode 7 Review – ‘Rather The Fallen Angel’

Martin Carr reviews the seventh episode of Supergirl season 4…

Beyond the Ellis Island references, vigilante tactics and ethical undercurrents around human experimentation Supergirl discusses something else this week. ‘Rather The Fallen Angel’ proposes that human duality and your ability to balance both sides of this equation are more ambiguous than others may think. Our choices, those actions and any subsequent repercussions are neither driven by our emotions nor ruled exclusively with stone cold logic. Our acceptance or rejection of other nationalities, divergent cultures and differing customs should also have the same approach applied if harmony is to be maintained. What this episode effectively does then is give us a reasoned dramatic exploration of both sides without making judgements.

It does so by establishing a tentative bond between Manchester Black and Supergirl in the opening minutes before seguing off into sub-plot with James Olsen and Lena Luthor. As much as the

Supergirl Teams Up With Manchester Black In New Photos

To be completely honest, Supergirl‘s third season bored me more often than not. Thankfully, the producers have managed to turn it around this year, for I could imagine season 4 going down as being the series’ best when it wraps next spring.

If one element could be credited for the improvement, it’d have to be the addition of Ben Lockwood Aka Agent Liberty. Really, this guy has more depth to him than any previous big bad this show had called its own. Then again, you’re going to produce gold whenever you have someone like Smallville alum Sam Witwer bringing such great writing to life.

In addition to revealing the set of Lockwood’s new talk show, the gallery of images promoting this week’s episode, “Rather the Fallen Angel,” also shows the Maiden of Might teaming up with Manchester Black. And though one could argue the guy’s

Supergirl Season 4 Episode 6 Review – ‘Call to Action’

Martin Carr reviews the sixth episode of Supergirl season 4…

Once again the segregationist attitude which pervades Supergirl leads to conflicting tonally shifts which deviates away from important topics appeasing audience expectations. Underlying themes are becoming less and less subtle as these programme makers explore, examine and dissect native sentiment versus immigrant influence. Not so much an entertaining and non-biased discussion and more the manifesto of a disgruntled populous venting spleen, Supergirl continues getting political whilst struggling to remain neutral.

What is currently going on is both exciting but disappointing simultaneously. By incorporating extremist hate groups, vigilante countermeasures and non-violent confrontations Supergirl is trying to have her cake and eat it. By comparing the perceived high minded approach of Brainiac against Manchester Black who hangs human captives from his shower rail and uses pliers for interrogation purposes they are treading a thin line. Using gravity and going full Scarface before the

Supergirl Cast Previews Mystifying, Musical (?!) Thanksgiving Melee
Thanksgiving dinner is served on Sunday’s Supergirl (The CW, 8/7c). But before anyone has a chance to give thanks for life’s many blessings (Sam Witwer’s jawline, etc.), a scuffle with the Children of Liberty cuts the celebration short.

“All of the Superfriends come together for Thanksgiving dinner, and like pretty much every Supergirl get-together, we’re forced to … scatter and go off and try to save the city,” Jesse Rath told reporters during a recent visit to the show’s set. “You get to see Braniac get froggy with a couple of Children of Liberty thugs.

Supergirl Season 4 Episode 5 Review – ‘Parasite Lost’

Martin Carr reviews the fifth episode of Supergirl season 4…

There is nothing connecting this episode to the John Milton classic Paradise Lost. Hate groups, alien alienation and a spiralling increase in internet abuse towards immigrant interlopers seems the closest you get. Between the faith healers, fringe groups and lack of humanity shown by humans to their alien counterparts, one might say Parasite Lost merely documents social intolerance. However delivering on the expectations of that classic is a brave move when you have an infected Deo agent, malignant military zealot and tub thumping extremist for dramatic purposes.

Lockwood is highly educated, extremely driven and has used the internet to propel his point of view. Played by Sam Witwer with a zeal and conviction which attempts to lend fire and brimstone to the cause he is merely a catalyst for public opinion. Essentially this is the current American political climate cranked up

Supergirl Season 4 Episode 3 Review: Man of Steel

Things are not looking good for the aliens and the Deo with the Kryptonian contamination spreading across planet Earth and putting Supergirl out of commision. 

At the start of Supergirl Season 4 Episode 3, Alex poses a question that serves as a catalyst for the rest of the episode: "what kind of person would do something like this."

Well, I'm glad you asked Alex because it led to finally unmasking the Agent of Liberty and establishing his connection to the Graves siblings. 

The answer to Alex's question is a person who has exhausted all his or her other options.

In case you haven't picked up on it, there is a lot of resentment from the humans when it comes to aliens living on their planet.

Xander Berkeley guest stars as Ben’s anti-alien father on Supergirl

Xander Berkeley will guest star on Sunday’s episode of Supergirl, playing Pete Lockwood, the father of Ben Lockwood played by Sam Witwer. Throughout the episode, fans will see how Ben transforms from the mild-mannered professor to the evil villain viewers know as Agent Liberty. The episode tells Ben’s past with aliens and the preview reveals that he didn’t always hate the creatures, partially due to input from his father. Viewers will probably remember Xander Berkeley from his most recent role on The Walking Dead but his acting resume is vast and he’s been in quite a few productions over the years. […]
