Review: “Batman: The Brave and the Bold” and the Blu-ray – Seasons 1 and 2

by Ed Liuon January 23, 2015
I’ve read a lot of reviews of Batman: The Brave and the Bold by writers (including here) who feel the need to bend over backwards explaining how they can like the show even though it’s not 100% serious in the way that Batman: The Animated Series or Beware the Batman are. I think the fact […]

Making Beautiful Music with “The Book of Life” Composer Gustavo Santaolalla

by Ed Liuon January 23, 2015
Multi-talented Gustavo Santaolalla has made an impact in the world of music as a musician, a songwriter, an album producer, and a film music composer. The Argentinan-born musician began his career as a teenager when he founded the rock band Arco Iris in the late 1960’s, which fused rock and Latin American folk music to […]

Review: “Looney Tunes Platinum Collection Vol. 3” – A Swell Swan Song

by SB20xxon December 17, 2014
It’s hard to review the third Looney Tunes Platinum Collection release without addressing the genuine possibility that this may be the last Looney Tunes Blu-ray release for a long time. Between gradually declining sales with each volume, the market shifting away from Blu-ray to digital, and Warner Bros.’s reluctance to devote much of their budget […]

Review: “Kiki’s Delivery Service” Blu-ray – One of Miyazaki’s Best Has Never Looked Better

by Weathermanon November 26, 2014
How does one review a movie like Kiki’s Delivery Service? Classic doesn’t even begin to accurately describe the movie. Think of any superlative adjective and you could probably attach it to Kiki’s Delivery Service. I think “Among the All Time Greats” is a good starting point. Is it Ghibli’s magnum opus? Perhaps not, but that’s […]

Review: “Batman ’66” Blu-ray Limited Edition – The Bright Knight Returns

by Ed Liuon November 25, 2014
Like many of its fans, I seem to have gone through three distinct phases with the 1966 Batman TV series. As a kid, I loved it unironically, since I had no idea what “camp” meant and had precious little basis for live-action superhero comparison. As a teenager, discovering Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns and […]

Review: “Princess Mononoke” Blu-ray – The Indispensable Mythic Movie

by Todd DuBoison November 24, 2014
Rarely has the wait for high definition treatment been longer and more worthwhile than for Princess Mononoke. This is the most distinct film in Hayao Miyazaki’s illustrious oeuvre, and surely a contender for his very greatest if only because of the many layers there are to it. It is an epic quest, a tale of […]
