DC Superhero Girls: Intergalactic Games – DVD Review

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

Supergirl, Batgirl, Bumblebee, Wonder Woman, Harley Quinn and more are back for another girl-powered adventure in DC Superhero Girls: Intergalactic Games! This time, the students of Super Hero High have their hands full when Granny Goodness and the Furies along with some other nefarious ne’er do wells do their best to ruin the fun and spirit of the Games that all the girls have been training for. Will they succeed and take home the gold, or will evil prevail through unscrupulous deeds?

An extension of the TV series of the same name and a sequel to the original DC Superhero Girls movie, Hero of the Year, Intergalactic Games provides plenty of superhero fun centered around a strong female cast of characters that prove that it’s not always male superheroes that can save the day; sometimes a little girl power can do the trick!

DC Superhero Girls: Intergalactic Games is a fun, family-friendly film with plenty of lessons about teamwork, strength of character, and the dangers of cheating. These Super Hero Girls are great role models that have strong senses of self and are confident in who they are and in their abilities not just as superheroes but as young women as well.

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.

Flash-Season-2-Blu-Ray-500x670

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!

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: 2015 Comic-Con Panel

Gag Reel

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

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow: The Complete First Season is available NOW on DVD and Blu-ray!

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.
