Starring Tyler Labine, Jeremy Shada, Bex Taylor-Klaus, Josh Keaton, Steven Yeun, Rhys Darby, Keith Ferguson, Kimberly Brooks
Netflix
Premiere date: Friday, June 10th, 2016

When I was a kid there was no greater 2-hour block of TV than 3:00 – 5:00 after school on FOX. It was 4 straight kickass cartoons, all of which launched me into action figure glory. The shows were She-Ra, He-Man, Thundercats, and Voltron. As for Voltron, memories of my Dad dashing around Brooklyn to various Toys R-Us locations in an effort get me all five lion toys that together would combine to form Voltron. In my house phrases like “I’ll form the head”, and “Form blazing sword” were common speak. Nearly 30 years later, Netflix has brought the series into its growing array of original programing with an 11-episode opening season that premiered on Netflix just this week. The show features the voice talents of Tyler Labine (Tucker and Dale vs. Evil), Jeremy Shada (Adventure Time), Bex Taylor-Klaus (MTV’s Scream), Josh Keaton (Green Lantern: The Animated Series), and Steven Yeun (The Walking Dead).

Netflix Review: Batman Year One

Batman Year One
Netflix Streaming
DVD | Blu-ray
Directed by Sam Liu and Lauren Montgomery
Starring Bryan Cranston, Benjamin McKenzie, Eliza Dushku, Katee Sackhoff, Alex Rocco
Warner Home Video
Originally Released: October 18, 2011

Speaking nostalgically, the Batman Year One comic series by Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli instigates many happy memories for me. I, along with many other geeks, hold the earlier Miller Batman work in high esteem, and the Year One arc released back in 1987 is often regarded with much reverence. It, accompanied by titles like The Killing Joke and others, is often pointed to as being must-read material for new Batman readers.

Thus, when it was announced that Warner Brothers Animation and DC were going forward with an animated adaptation of the classic and timeless Batman Year One, it was a bittersweet moment. Would they stand true to the original material? Or make sweeping adaptations for the release?

DC Entertainment/Warner Bros.
Release Date: June 8, 2011

DC’s animation department has done a terrific job with all of their animated features showcasing some of the biggest names in DC’s library, and the next film in this legacy is the anthology style film, Green Lantern: Emerald Knights. When I popped this into my Blu-ray player, honestly, I wasn’t sure to expect. I’ve been a fan, overall, of the DC animated films and their adaptation of All-Star Superman was almost perfect, it captured the heart and story of the comic while also making things cohesive for the animated medium. All-Star Superman is probably my favorite of the films, but I had an emotional tie to that story, and while I’ve loved the majority of these animated titles, I can’t say the same about Green Lantern: First Flight, the least favorite out of all the features.
