Toonzone Reviews "Green Lantern: The Animated Series"

The sneak preview premiere of Green Lantern: The Animated Series has been reviewed independently by two different Toonzone staff members. The verdict? Revelator: Green Lantern: The Animated Series: Beware Not My first impressions of Green Lantern: The Animated Series were formed at Comicon, and they weren’t good. The clips were action figure theater. But my […]

"Green Lantern: The Animated Series" Shines

I’m not completely sold on the animation yet. CG animation can be a mixed bag, and when it comes to facial expressions and depicting various emotions, that’s where it falls on shaky ground. Luckily, the series is content to spend a lot of time on alien worlds where most characters on the show aren’t human, […]

"Batman: Year One": Great Adaptation. Great Movie...?

Adaptations of books in Hollywood baffle me. They can manage to mangle A Midsummer Night’s Dream so badly that the author’s name has to become part of the title or we wouldn’t be able to tell it’s an adaptation. They can manage to miss the entire point of Nathaniel Hawthorne. Meanwhile, the comic books and […]

"Batman: Year One": The Year of Living Priggishly

Grim and portentous, Batman: Year One is an animated adaptation of the landmark graphic novel so in awe of the source material that it can’t have fun with its pulpy story. Most viewers, probably, will forgive and even embrace its numbly reverential tone, and the thing is certainly quite stylish. But those looking for fun […]
