Cloverfield Blu-Ray Review

Cloverfield Blu-Ray Review

With the exception of the 1950’s atomic monster trend, the “giant monster” genre has never captured American audiences in the same way it has overseas. However, leave it to producer JJ Abrams to trick American audiences into watching a giant monster movie by presenting it in “Blair Witch”, first-person style. I make that comparison in […]

Shutter: Unrated DVD

Shutter: Unrated DVD

Shutter is another in a long cavalcade of Asian horror film remakes.  This Grudge-rific (or Ring-tastic if you prefer) remake utilizes all of the same plot points that have been done to death in previous installments.  Female intuition reigns supreme, people scrutinize the most mundane details of their everyday life, and ultimately the spirit (or spirits) are […]

The Spiderwick Chronicles 2-Disc DVD

The Spiderwick Chronicles 2-Disc DVD

After watching The Spiderwick Chronicles with the family this past weekend, I came away extremely surprised. I was surprised at how fun this film was. Yes, I know it’s been compared to Jumanji, Zathura, and even Gremlins, but honestly, how many original kids movies are there these days. I’m also surprised at how badly this […]

Batman: Gotham Knight Review

Batman: Gotham Knight Review

I know not everybody is, but I am a huge fan of Bruce Timm’s animation style.  As you can guess, I was excited to see him attached to the Batman: Gotham Knight project, with Kevin Conroy as the voice of Batman, no less.  It’s a fanboy dream come true, though I would never publicly call […]

Transformers: Animated – Transform and Roll Out DVD

Transformers: Animated – Transform and Roll Out DVD

When I heard there was going to be a new Transformers animated series produced that was aimed at kids, features exaggerated animation and did not feature Peter Cullen as the voice of Optimus Prime, I was ready to pass on the series. This would just another entry in a series of Transformers animated shows that […]

Invincible #50

Invincible #50

The latest issue of Invincible, which promised that there would be some changes, basically gave readers what they already knew was coming.  If anything this was the revelation of the forgone conclusions.  Not to detract from, what is essentially, a very well written issue, though.  For the spoiler squeamish types, there might be a few […]

“Batman R.I.P” Begins

"Batman R.I.P" Begins

The ever ominous title, Batman R.I.P. has comic fans pondering the fate of Bruce Wayne and his costume wearing counterpart.  In order to assuage any concerns, writer Grant Morrison has stated numerous times that this is not a death, but rather that, “ This is the end of Bruce Wayne as Batman.” Now, Bruce Wayne has hung up the […]

Iron Man

Iron Man

I am a huge fan of Iron Man, dating back to my childhood…which is exactly the type of thing I’d love to say and mean.  It’s not true though.  I collected an Iron Man comic here and there in the 8o’s, but that is essentially it.  I’ve never been a big fan.  That, however, did not […]

Countdown To Final Crisis #1

Countdown To Final Crisis #1

Can you hear that?  That, sort of fizzling sound.  That is the end of DC’s weekly series Countdown To Final Crisis.  And yes it ends, not with a giant battle cry, but rather with with a baby’s whimper.  Without spoiling anything for those twelve people that continued reading Countdown To Final Crisis to its massively non-climatic […]

Titans #1

Titans #1

Who remembers the Titans East: Special that shipped back in December?  I do, but maybe not everyone does.  Well, Titans#1 is the continuation of the story that began within the pages of that special way back when, and luckily writer Judd Winick takes the time to remind us of the events that took place. Without laying any spoiler […]

Batman: Death Mask

Batman: Death Mask

The new four issue limited series, Batman: Death Mask, from creator Yoshinori Natsume, is a fusion of Batman style action with manga style artwork.  And really, how often do you get to see Batman mangafied? Batman, actually, translates pretty well onto the manga scene, where as Bruce Wayne does not.  The wide eyed expressions, coupled with […]

Wolverine Gets Classy (Wolverine First Class)

If there ever was a character, in any comic universe, that deserves another book of their own, it’s Wolverine.  Right?  That was my initial thought.  Of course, I don’t read any of the other Wolverine titles, mainly because it can be a little overwhelming.  Especially since none of the titles seem to settle on his […]

Golden Age + Modern Age = The Twelve

Golden Age + Modern Age = The Twelve

The Blue Blade. Mister E. The Phantom Reporter. As comic fans you must all be well aware of these characters, being that they were on active duty in the early forties, in a period of comic history known as the Golden Age. I would love to tell you that I have extensive knowledge of these […]

Booster Gold: Why Should Anyone Care?

Booster Gold:  Why Should Anyone Care?

With an array of weekly titles emblazoned with the big red “S” and so many Countdown titles that you’re almost certain you’ll never reach number 1, why should you be bothered with reading Booster Gold? I’ll tell you why, but beware the spoilers that lie ahead. In recent history, Booster Gold has played a major […]

Indiana Jones Omnibus Vol. 1

Indiana Jones Omnibus Vol. 1

For my first review I have chosen to focus on the new Indiana Jones Omnibus from Dark Horse Comics. Now you might think this is a pretty inauspicious start for someone writing for the website entitled Superheroes-R-Us, but I have my reasons for choosing Indy as my springboard. Though Dr. Jones isn’t considered a card […]
