Arrow: The Complete Fourth 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.

Arrow_-_The_Complete_Fourth_Season_Blu-ray

Ready for more action-packed Arrow fun? Here it is, folks! Non-stop from the outset, season four of Arrow delivers on its promise to bring a new and exciting level of thrills, twists, and danger as violence and chaos erupt around Star City. And new threats rearing their ugly heads, its up to a special brand of hero to put a stop to the madness.

But wait? Didn’t the superhero known as Arrow die last season? While his persona may have died, the man who embodied him lives on as Oliver Queen. Now on a path of peace and tranquility in his new life with girlfriend Felicity, Oliver does what he can to make his newfound non-vigilante lifestyle work. It doesn’t take long, however, before a new threat forces him out of retirement and back into the crime-fighting world once again.

Teaming with Black Canary, Spartan, and Speedy once more, Queen – who now identifies as Green Arrow – is back in action to help prevent a new wave of evil from threatening and destroying his beloved city. Can he and his team thwart the threat and bring peace back to the forefront?

Loaded with solid action sequences, awesome stunts, and plenty of firepower and explosions, Arrow: The Complete Fourth Season doesn’t disappoint. In fact, it ups the ante and brings even more excitement than the last three seasons. It’s a definite must-watch.

And with cameos from The Flash and characters from DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, there are plenty of surprises along the way as Green Arrow and company fight for justice.

The Blu-ray includes the following special features:

Star-Crossed Hawks featurette

Star-Crossed Hawks: The Hunt for Vandal Savage featurette

Smooth Criminal: The Damien Darhk Story featurette

Arrow: 2015 Comic-Con Panel

Gag Reel

I highly recommend Arrow: The Complete Fourth Season. It’s solid superhero entertainment!

Arrow: The Complete Fourth Season is available NOW on Blu-ray and DVD!

Forget the character from Smallville. The CW is preparing a reboot of DC’s The Green Arrow and we’ve got the first image!

The “Arrow” pilot is currently in production, written by Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim and Andrew Kreisberg and directed by David Nutter. The latter was the director of the pilot and first episodes of Smallville as well as many other genre fiction favorites like Supernatural and The Sarah Connor Chronicles.

Deadline Hollywood quotes Nutter: “When I directed the pilot for Smallville, I knew that making Clark Kent relatable would be the key to audiences believing in him as a hero. Arrow is a different show — darker and harder-edged — but it’s the same core idea.”

We can’t wait. What do you think? Leave a comment below.

As with all popular or successful brands and lines, they are hard to kill, and find themselves being revamped nearly every four years or so. Stretching back to the 1920’s, Batman has been perhaps one of the most popular and successful character lines ever created. Flourishing briefly in the 1930s and 40s as a movie serial and then 1960’s as a television show and cartoon, it wasn’t until Tim Burton’s seminal BATMAN in 1989 that the character fully breathed life as a full-fledged character. Since that time there have been five feature films (one of which was actually worthy of the title, and the most recent Dark Knight appropriately titled as it really has nothing to do with Batman….uugghh), as well as least four distinct animated series (again, only one of which could be considered perfect, that being the first one). But enough of this sappy nostalgic wallowing, ON to the FUTURE…or is it BACK….to the…Past..? Continue reading

Justice League Movie On Again

On again, off again.

Hollywood works like that.

Because of the writers strike in Hollywood, Warner Bros. “shelved” their planned big budget, live action ‘Justice League’ movie back on January 16, 2008.

Movie was to be directed by George Miller (‘Happy Feet’) and starred Adam Brody as the Flash, rapper Common as the Green Lantern, and Megan Gale as Wonder Woman. Movie was to be based on the popular DC Comic characters.

But now that the strike is over, the WB has once again given the movie a green light and everyone is back at work including screenwriters Kieran and Michele Mulroney, with production slated to start later this year.
