New Comic Book Reviews Week Of 2/18 & 2/25

27th February

There are a few things that I want to go over before the reviews this week. First because of my vacation last week I will try to hit books from both this and last weeks releases. Second in an effort to cover more ground each week I am slightly changing the format of the review. I will no longer cover the plot synopsis from the publisher and get straight to the reviews of the books. This will hopefully save time each week and I will maybe be able to fit in more reviews. So there are a lot of books so let’s get cracking!

Watership Down Blu-Ray Review

25th February

The long-awaited classic animated feature Watership Down finally is getting the treatment that it deserves on Blu-Ray courtesy of the Criterion Collection. Criterion has recently made a deal with Warner Bros. to release titles on Blu-Ray from their vast catalog. I am told that this is the first of many more to come in the future. There was a previous Warner Bros. Blu-Ray release that was a worldwide disc (Region Free and Multi Language Menus) that I worked on at Warner Bros. years ago that was strangely only released in Germany in October of 2010. That release was decent but the new Criterion edition easily trumps that version.

The technical specs for the Blu-Ray are:

Video
Codec: MPEG-4 AVC
Resolution: 1080p
Aspect ratio: 1.85:1
Original aspect ratio: 1.85:1

Audio
English: PCM 2.0

Subtitles
English SDH

Discs
50GB Blu-ray Disc
Single disc (1 BD)

Playback
Region A

Were Back

24th February

After taking a long overdue vacation last week to Walt Disney World and the other resort parks, I am working on stories about the trip that will be covered over the next few weeks. I am still trying to recover from the 9 day excursion (and trying to catch up on sleep) tomorrow I will be reviewing the new Criterion Blu-Ray release of Watership Down. So thanks for your patience on new stories and reviews and after this week I should get things back on schedule again.

So stay tuned!


New Comic Book Reviews Week Of 2/11/15

13th February

So this was a very welcomed quiet week with new comics. So there are only a few books to review this week. So let’s get started shall we.

Fables: The Wolf Among Us #2

Vertigo Comics Writers Dave Justus & Matthew Sturges, Artists Steve Sadowski, Shawn McManus, & Travis Moore, Colorist Lee Loughridge, Letterer Sal Cipriano

I was pleasantly surprised by the first issue of the comic based on the video game and the second issue starts to really get into the mystery. The plot from Vertigo is, The murder mystery deepens as Bigby and Snow get dressed down by acting Mayor Ichabod Crane, a fairytale princess gets dressed up in furs, and the Magic Mirror gets addressed in rhyme. Bigby has the beginnings of a theory, as well as a suspect…but both could turn out to be full of holes by the end … Read More »



What Does The Sony/Marvel Spider-Man Agreement Really Mean?

11th February

 

It was a somewhat big surprise of the news that Sony and Marvel had come to an agreement on the sharing of Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I say somewhat of a surprise due to the leaked e-mails about the possibility of it happening. While I wont rehash the story, instead I want to give my views on what may come to the future of Spider-Man projects in the future.

First off Marvel did not get Spider-Man back from Sony. Sony still controls the rights to the Spider-Man universe and basically made a no money changed hands agreement with Marvel. There are a few things at work with this agreement. This gives Sony a more long-term approach to the Spider-Man license meaning that the ticking clock of the rights have probably drastically slowed down and they wont have to keep … Read More »
