The Flash: The Complete Second 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.

Barry Allen has come a long way since a particle accelerator explosion transformed him into Central City’s biggest savior, The Flash. He’s honed his powers, teamed with other metahumans to fight notorious villains, and even become a reluctant hero. In the midst of all that, Barry has seen friends die, others double-cross him, and the mystery over his mother’s murder has been resolved giving him some much sought-after answers.

Following the tragic aftermath of the events in the season one finale, Barry has distanced himself those around him to keep them out of harm’s way. But superheroes and their closest friends have a tendency to attract evil no matter the circumstances, and The Flash must once again rely on those he pushed away for their own protection.

The second season of The Flash continues the adrenaline-fueled momentum that catapulted the first season into the hit it quickly became. There’s so much happening; tons of action, suspense, and cross-overs with other series that it’ll make your head spin. And if you like The Flash, boy are you in for a special treat!

How many special features can you pack into a single season of a TV series on Blu-ray? How about four hours worth! That’s right, the Blu-ray edition of season two contains over 23 featurettes that cover just about every possible thing you have ever wanted to know about what goes into making a superhero-themed TV series.

A few include a featurette that goes behind-the-scenes of the episode Kevin Smith (yes, that Kevin Smith) directed, “The Runaway Dinosaur;” Six VFX Featurettes highlighting a variety of big effects moments in the season; Character Profiles; and a Gag Reel. There’s so much to watch it’s insane!

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, DC knows how to make their heroes shine on TV. It’s an amazing thing to watch as three – and soon four with Supergirl joining the ranks – series work in tandem to create a brilliantly interconnected universe for all of its characters to shine in. Well done, DC!

For some fast-paced, action-packed excitement, I highly recommend The Flash: The Complete Second Season!

The Flash: The Complete Second Season is available September 06, 2016 on DVD and Blu-ray!

Nicolas Cage in Superman screen test is laughably bad.

One of the worst attempts I’ve heard of for a new Superman movie comes from a screenwriter, specifically Kevin Smith. Continue reading “Nicolas Cage in Superman screen test is laughably bad.”

Kevin Smith Vouches the Watchmen

Everyone’s having doubts about this. Zack Snyder is doing risky business by adapting to film the greatest graphic novel of all time. Will he succeed? Nobody can be sure, because you can’t have the film take too many liberties from the novel, and you can’t capture all the subliminal hints and qualities of the novel fully in the film.

In any case, Kevin Smith, dude extraordinaire, has watched the Watchmen (don’t worry, the use of that pun is going to increase exponentially as we approach March 2009). A paltry NDA stops him from saying anything, but he definitely has words to share about the experience:

“I saw Watchmen. It’s fucking astounding. The Non-Disclosure Agreement I signed prevents me from saying much, but I can spout the following with complete joygasmic enthusiasm: Snyder and Co. have pulled it off. Remember that feeling of watching Sin City on the big screen and being blown away by what a faithful translation of the source material it was, in terms of both content and visuals? Triple that, and you’ll come close to watching Watchmen. Even Alan Moore might be surprised at how close the movie is to the book. March can’t come soon enough.”

Now I am one of the pitiable souls who has not watched Sin City yet, but I can tell that the guy is saying that it’s going to be a great movie. I don’t know how many changes will be made to the movie upto release date, though. It’s still a good 7 months or so away, so you never know. Still, seeing Smith’s reaction, I think we can all expect something extreme.
