“South Park: The Complete Fourteenth Season” Blu-ray Review

by James Harveyon April 29, 2011
It’s amazing how relevant South Park can stay fourteen years into its run. Where other shows falter and sputter to the end, barely crossing the finish line intact, South Park seems to always adapt to the situation, managing to become stronger, sharper, and…just funnier with every season. This latest season is definitely no exception to […]

“The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes – Season One, Volume One” DVD Review

by James Harveyon April 25, 2011
When you do a cartoon series based on some of the biggest characters in the Marvel Universe, you want to do it right. The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, to put it very simply, gets it right. Remember that terrible The Avengers: United They Stand cartoon, where the only good thing was the fact that it […]

“The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes – Volume One & Two” DVD Review

by James Harveyon April 25, 2011
It’s safe to say that this is the cartoon Marvel fans have been waiting for. The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes brings it all out there, so much of what makes the Marvel Universe such a unique place, and pretty much lays it all out on the table. And, for those having flashbacks of the old […]

“The Incredibles” Blu-ray Combo Pack Review

by James Harveyon April 19, 2011
Sometimes a name is so perfect, so dead-on, that there’s really no other way to describe it, and The Incredibles is a case of just that. Even now, years after it first hit both the big screen and DVD, it remains just as incredible as I remember. The animation, the story, the brilliant casting and […]

“Hulk Versus Thor” DVD Review

by James Harveyon April 7, 2011
Two heroes duking it out with one another, usually over a misunderstanding of some type, is pretty standard comic fare. Fans have long since wished to see some of the most heroic clashes brought to life and, in 2009, Marvel Animation did just that with Hulk Versus, pitting the Jade Giant against two of Marvel’s […]

“Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker” Blu-ray Review

by James Harveyon April 5, 2011
When people think of Batman, thoughts of the Joker are close behind. This evil clown has been tormenting the Dark Knight since the beginning, and remains the most fascinating member of Batman’s rogues gallery. However, his presence has been completely absent from the tales of the future Batman. News of the Joker’s animated return has […]

“Batman: The Brave and The Bold – Season One, Part Two” DVD Review

by James Harveyon March 15, 2011
If you didn’t enjoy the previous thirteen episodes of Batman: The Brave and The Bold, then I doubt this latest collection will change any minds. However, there’s just so much here to love that it’s impossible for me not to implore readers, even those who have never given this show a chance, to give it […]

“Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated – Season One, Volume One” DVD Review

by James Harveyon March 9, 2011
It’s impossible to keep a good franchise down, and the Scooby-Doo franchise is a pretty solid example of that. Countless television shows, a couple live-action movies, piles of animated movies, and countless piles of merchandise. Earlier this year, Cartoon Network introduced the latest installment of the Scooby-Doo franchise, Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated, a series that pays […]

“All-Star Superman” Blu-ray Review

by James Harveyon February 28, 2011
Breathe a sigh of relief, fans of writer Grant Morrison’s epic All-Star Superman graphic novel. They’ve done it justice with this new animated adaptation. Managing to shorten a 12-issue series into a 75-minute movie is by no means an easy task, but the creative team behind this film has managed to pull it off here. […]

“Black Panther” DVD Review

by James Harveyon February 10, 2011
Before I get going, I just want to make my stance clear on whether or not Black Panther is an animated series or a motion comic. Personally, I don’t feel right calling this a “motion comic.” It doesn’t feel like it. Sure, some of the limitations of the format are there, but this feels far […]

“Alpha and Omega” Blu-ray Review

by James Harveyon January 18, 2011
Alpha and Omega is not without it’s charm, let me say that right away. The main character, voiced by Justin Long, is very likable and easy to follow for the duration of the movie. Voicing Humphrey, an Omega wolf who tries to ease the tension of his pack with his goofy antics, Long instantly yanks […]

“The Twilight Saga: Eclipse – Two-Disc Special Edition” DVD Review

by James Harveyon December 16, 2010
The Twilight Saga: Eclipse is one of those movies that is in…well…it is in a bit of a rare situation. The Twilight franchise is loved by teenage girls the world over, but reviled by boys. Many are begrudgingly dragged to see each of these films, sitting through what feels like an eternity of ab shots […]
