New thing. MICRO REVIEWS!
These posts will be brief summary thoughts concerning my feelings about various “nerdtainment” items. This is becoming a necessity, as I am getting more content than I have time for a formal review.
SUICIDE SQUAD. I promise, I will bring a full review after I see it a second time. I saw this on opening weekend, and was impressed. Very nice movie, that remained faithful to the comic book characters. Harley Quinn stole the show…
HE-MAN AND THE MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE: “THE THREE TERRORS” (Short Animation)…This is now available on iTunes, and I watched it today. It is ten minutes of an attempt by Super7 to revive the Filmation style of animation. This little cartoon hit it at about 80%. Alan Oppenheimer still voices Skeletor, but he just doesn’t have the high pitches that he carried in his younger days.
SPEAKING OF SUPER7…I was shocked to hear of their takeover of MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE CLASSICS. I think their small figure line is cute and interesting, maybe even worth the $5 a figure. But I don’t own any…I am in the camp with many other fans that jittery times are ahead. Why would Mattel pass that property? I am glad Digital River is done. Maybe shipping will be cheaper.
METALLICA: “HARDWIRED FOR DESTRUCTION”…This is the only track and also is the title track) released so far, for an album slated to release on November 18. It’s about time! The few reviews on iTunes so far compare the song to stuff on “Justice for All.” I think the singing might be a little smoother than what was on “Death Magnetic,” but the band’s all around sound is about the same. Robert Trujillo is KILLING that bass!
YOUNG JUSTICE…I began watching this again…I watched it last year. What a great cartoon! I wish more would happen.
DC COMICS: REBIRTH..I have been reading Batman as well as Robin, Son of Batman, and also I picked up All Star Batman. So far, the most powerful story is the Batman book that came out this week. Batman #5 dropped a couple of bombs, that they are going to kill Batman ONCE AGAIN. And that Duke Thomas is going to marry Gotham Girl.
MAGIC THE GATHERING: CONSPIRACY-TAKE THE CROWN…The spoilers released so far have fans scratching their heads. This set looks to bring more power and almost better reprints than Eternal Masters and Modern Masters 2015. Very odd!
