by Stuon June 17, 2006
Warner Bros Home Video has once again dipped into its vast animation well and has treated us to a full season set of Justice League: Season Two, mere months after the opening season was released. After an incredibly lack luster initial season, I remember being anxious and I’ll admit, nervous, to see how how/if the […]

"Brainiac Attacks," and the Audience Loses

by Maxie Zeuson June 16, 2006
Superman: Brainiac Attacks is the kind of thing that makes you believe in parallel dimensions: places where Batman is evil, Spock wears a beard, and mullets are thought stylish. This new and appalling direct-to-DVD movie looks like a feature-length spin-off of the much-esteemed Superman: The Animated Series (STAS), but everything in it is creepily “off.” […]

"Gundam SEED Destiny" Still Off to a Great Start

SEED Destiny has already bucked that trend by having an awesome first five episodes and the question is now whether it can keep it up. After letting […]
