Episode Review: The Flash – S04E04 “Elongated Journey Into Night”

By November 1, 2017 DC, Reviews, SuperHeroes, TV

And we’re back to Central City!  Back to the mysteries of the bus that was flooded with Dark Matter, creating a group now collectively known as the “Bus Metas”.  What’s the problem of the week, and who is the new meta?

It’s Ralph Dibny!  Now, for those of who who are unfamiliar, this is a comic book character who has been a prominent member of the Justice League of America for many years, is a top-notch detective, and happens to have stretchy powers, similar to Mr. Fantastic of the Fantastic Four, and Elasti-Girl from the movie The Incredibles.  Also, the second stretching superhero in DC.  The first being Plastic-Man.

Episode Review: The Flash – S04E03 “Luck Be a Lady”

By October 25, 2017 DC, Entertainment, Reviews, SuperHeroes, TV

This episode can best be described as “zany”.  This is Season 1, taken to 11.  The cast not only jokes with each other, but the chemistry among the actors is now being used in addition, and it comes off as honest fun, instead of forced mirth.

And it features the return of Harry, Harrison Wells from Earth-2, and father of Jesse Quick.  They have been off doing the father-daughter superhero thing, and his name has been dropped a few times, but this features the return of Tom Cavanagh as a full-time cast member.

By October 18, 2017 DC, Entertainment, Reviews, SuperHeroes, TV

OK, so here we are again.  Back in Central City.  A city full of Speedsters, supervillains, Big Belly Burger, and CC Jitters coffee.  Strap in, grab a cuppa, and let’s see what this episode has to show us!  On to “Mixed Signals”!

So, we all know that this season is supposed to bring back the “Lighter hearted” Barry.  The show-runners have promised us less melancholy, less brooding, and more *FUN*.

But….we’re FOUR seasons in.  Shouldn’t they have a handle on how The Flash should be handled?

DC Movie Review: Catwoman

By June 4, 2017 DC, Entertainment, Movies, Ramblings, Reviews, SuperHeroes

“It all started on the day that I died.”  Ominous words to start a movie.

What can be said about Catwoman that hasn’t already been said a thousand times.

It was a poor movie, with terrible characters, and even worse plot.  We all know this.  It was rated as one of the worst movies ever, getting a whopping 9% positive reviews on Rotten Tomatoes.  Even Plan 9 from Outer Space got a 67% Rotten Tomato score.  Even Reefer Madness a pure propaganda piece that was insultingly bad, and rated as one of the worst movies of all time by critics managed to scored 46%!

So, you know it’s got to be a terrible movie to get a worse rating than THOSE stinkers!

Wonder Woman Wows

By June 2, 2017 DC, Entertainment, Movies, Ramblings, SuperHeroes

So today, Friday, June 2nd, is the official release of Wonder Woman.

And, from all reports, it is a glorious celebration of the character, and a ‘fantastic comic book movie’.  This is good news, considering the much-maligned WB studios has struggled with their DC movies.

This movie, however, is an astounding reversal, and may go down as one of the iconic movies of DC’s entire movie-line (and yes, that includes Superman with Christopher Reeves and Dark Knight with Ledger and Bale).  From all reports, it is fun, entertaining, and doesn’t leave the audience wondering “WHAT THE FUCK DID I JUST SEE??” like some of the previous movies (Batman v Superman).

Episode Recap: The Flash S4E22 – “Infantino Street”

By May 17, 2017 DC, Entertainment, Reviews, SuperHeroes, TV

Last nights Flash was, to say the least, the payoff to what has been growing since we first saw Barry travel into the future.  We see the showdown at Infantino Street where Savitar stabs Iris and kills her.

They have shown flash backs, and flash forwards of Savitar stabbing Iris, since the first time Barry flashed-forward.  Savitar raises his arm, Barry tries to run, Savitar says “Finally, I am free of you!” and stabs Iris.  We’ve seen it in Cisco’s Vibe-visions, as well as the multiple times they’ve replayed it and re-visited the time.

The circle keeps looping, and Iris is stabbed.  No matter what Barry tries, Iris always ends up dead.

Last night, was their last chance to save her.
