DC’s Legends of Tomorrow: The Complete First Season – Blu-ray Review

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the Blu-ray I reviewed in this Blog Post. The opinions I share are my own.

DC's Legends of Tomorrow

Time traveling superheroes!? Count me in! The first season of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow is a fun and fresh take on the superhero genre that is energetic, exciting, and very entertaining. I was hooked by the pilot very quickly and was intrigued by the diverse cast of characters and the myriad story possibilities that this century-hopping series had in store.

It has yet to disappoint!

Living in a dark and destructive 2166, time-traveling rebel Rip Hunter defies the council known as the Time Lords and travels back to 2016 to assemble a team of heroes to stop the rise of the evil Vandal Savage. The reluctant group of super men and women soon comes to realize that the fate of planet Earth is in their hands and they join together to do whatever it takes to but an end to Savage’s future reign of terror and universal rule.

The only problem is that Savage is on to Hunter and his team’s plan, and he and his minions do all they can to prevent Rip and his Legends of Tomorrow from thwarting his plans. Will he succeed? Will the Legends of Tomorrow help make a better future? And can the fate of the world be changed with time the forces of time are fighting against being altered?

Loaded with amazing visuals and awesome special effects, Legends of Tomorrow proves once again that DC knows how to deliver a solid TV series. And, since the Legends of Tomorrow inhabit the same universe as Arrow, The Flash, and Supergirl, expect cross-overs and cameos as the series gains momentum.

Special features include:

A Fantastic Voyage: Touring the Waverider Set

A tour through the Legends’ time-traveling ship with the creative team that brought it to life.

History in the Making

A behind-the-scenes look at the different eras presented in the series.

Jonah Hex: Hex Marks the Spot

A look at how the production team brought the Wild West and Jonah Hex to life on the small screen.

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow is fun and solid superhero entertainment. I highly recommend this series!

It’s time to get your cape on with the girls at Super Hero High in the all-new animated movie, DC Superhero Girls: Hero of the Year! Much like other re-imaginings of pop culture figures, Hero of the Year brings together female superheroes and super villains from the DC Comics universe.

Alongside heroes Batgirl, Supergirl, Wonder Woman, and Katana we have the likes of Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy attending classes with them. It’s a pretty creative concept that works well and brings these strong female characters together for an action-packed animated adventure.

During the week of the annual Hero of the Year awards show, a shape-shifting baddie named Dark Opal creates a cacophony of chaos for our collection of super kids. Together, they must work as a united force to stop Dark Opal and his apocalyptic scheme before he destroys the world and ruins the awards show. Will the girls resolve this crisis before it’s too late?

DC Superhero Girls: Hero of the Year is an entertaining animated film that showcases Girl Power in all its awesome glory. There are plenty of references and nods to other DC stories and characters, plus look for cameos from the likes of Commissioner Gordon, Lois Lane, Amanda Waller, Hal Jordan (Green Lantern), and The Flash.

Supergirl: The Complete First Season – Blu-ray Review

Supergirl: The Complete First Season

DISCLAIMER: Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the Blu-ray I reviewed in this Blog Post. The opinions I share are my own.

Thoroughly entertaining, exciting, and enjoyable, the first season of Supergirl hits the ground running – or air flying? – proving once again that DC has the magic touch when it comes to bringing their characters to life for TV viewers. Whether it’s Arrow, The Flash, or Legends of Tomorrow, DC’s television division has done a tremendous job creating an interconnected world of superheroes much like the success Marvel has had with their Avengers cinematic universe.

Supergirl delivers a strong female superhero lead in Kara Danvers (Melissa Benoist), who is not only a former resident of the now-destroyed planet Krypton but is also Superman’s cousin. Residing in National City, Kara does her best to live a normal life until a potential tragedy causes her to leap out of the shadows and save the day, thus becoming Supergirl. Torn between living a normal life and being the superhero National City needs, Kara does her best to find a balance, which can be a tricky task.

Each episode showcases Kara’s ongoing quest to adapt to her newfound lifestyle as a superhero and learning about her powers and abilities. Along the way, we are treated some solid action sequences, some intriguing plot twists, and a whole slew of villains that Kara finds herself tasked with stopping both human and otherworldly.

With a solid supporting cast that includes Calista Flockhart, Mehcad Brooks, Chyler Leigh, Jeremy Jordan, and David Harewood, Supergirl is great superhero entertainment that will have you glued to the TV from the pilot to the exciting season finale!

Special features include:

Supergirl: 2015 Comic-Con Panel

The Man From Mars

A World Left Behind

Gag Reel

So, be like a bird, a plane, Superman, or Supergirl and fly out to own Supergirl: The Complete First Season on Blu-ray, DVD & Digital HD August 9, 2016!
