Review: Green Lantern: First Flight

Its been a little while since I have seen an animated movie at this level, I’m a huge fan of the Green Lantern but the producers and directors of this movie have done an excellent job with this piece of art. The storyline was well planed out, it is the story of the Green Lanter, Hal Jordan becoming the first Green Lantern of Earth and the short story of the Lantern Core and the Guardians. You get most of it from the start with lots of entertainment as it develops, and you are pulled into the story but the animation is something else. They really put their time in to make sure they had quality animation and this was in fact amazing quality, and for any fan of comics or who relatively likes this, this is a top rate animated movie which shouldn’t be missed.

Review: Crisis on Infinite Earths – Marv Wolfman

Recently I have gotten more interested in novels of comic books then I have of comic books, I do enjoy reading comic books every once in a while but these books have gotten really good. What I like is that they leave you with so much room to interpret the feel and look of the characters yet you know what they are thinking, and my imagination just goes on overdrive thinking about all the ideas they are bringing across. There are multiple copies of our universe, Earth-1, Earth-2, and a lot more, and they have slightly or drasticly different versions of our superheros and what they do. Something has disrupted the Multiverse and is hell bent on destroying them all, a white wall is all the heroes see before the impending death of their planet and no amount of fighting is able to fight. The key to unraveling the whole thing is Barry Allen aka The Flash. The story is so easy to read, you just want to keep following it page after page, I haven’t flown through a book like this in months. This story was in comic book form over 10 years ago but the novel version gives you the freedom to imagine, and it is very easy to see to get lost with all the characters but it all revolves around Barry Allen. For any person who has any inclination towards comic books then this is a fantastic read.

Review: Wonder Woman


From the origins of Wonder Woman and how she came to the land of man. Living on the Island Paradise of Themyscira where no man is allowed and Hates the God of War is imprisoned for life for his atrocities against man. Its a story some are familiar with but if you are not, its very easy and fun to follow. How these woman trained all their lives to be strong, how Diana became Wonder Woman, and how she moved to the land of man. An action packed animated movie which keeps you tied to the movie. DC Universe has been producing some very nice animated movies and this is one of them, if you like these sort of movies, then this is really worth watching.

Green Lantern: First Light HD

There have a lot of succesful animated movies such as Hulk vs Thor, The Invincible Ironman, Superman Doomsday, and lately Wonder Woman. I am huge fan of these animated movies, and at last they have stepped into the realm of the Lantern Core. A movie shall be made of Hal Jordan the Green Lantern, one of the most powerful superheroes in the DC Universe, a man who accept the role as protector of earth with no fear. It is no surprise that this movie is slightly tied in timing to the close release of the blockbuster movie, but I am really looking forward to the animated movie, especially from this trailer.

Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe

Now I have been watching the development of this game for sometime now. Looks like its going to be pretty good just based on the graphics. Its on my purchase list for now, but I’m going to wait for a few user review before purchase. How cool is to you SubZero vs Batman, or Flash vs Raidan, and so many other characters. I just hope the gameplay is as good as the graphics, unlike a lot of the other fighter games which have come out.

Review: 52: The Novel – Greg Cox

The comic story turned into a novel with the most enticing story, multiple plots running parallel with superheroes trying to find their way again after the last catastrophe. Superman, Wonder Woman, and Batman are no where to be found and the Justice League is only a semblance of what it once was. There are still many heroes left but can they hold out on their own. Something is brewing between Gotham, Metropolis, and the other cities while people are left picking up the pieces. You get drawn into multiple stories slowly building up, the look, feel, and familiarity of the comic characters is brilliant. It feels like I know all of them and their habits, and the build up just keeps getting better. As things progress you get hints of what 52 is, and ideas start patching together, but I won’t spoil the story. The best part is the amazing satisfaction from this book, and you get some completed stories but you are still left wanting more. I haven’t finished a book so quick such as this and at the same time hated finishing it. An amazing novel which any comic lover would adore, and keeps you turning the pages.

Current Reading

52 – Greg Cox

When Superman, Wonder Woman, and Batman disappear for a little while and leave it to the rest of the superheroes to pick up the slack after the crisis they went through. I have just started this book and I can’t stop reading it, it reminds me of the days I used to fly through comic books. I can’t help of having mental images when I’m reading through this book, my vivid imagination just kicks into overdrive.

Digital Photographer’s Handbook Revised – Tom Ang

A book that has a lot of helpful techniques and simple explanations of how to take great pictures. It has been very helpful and I have had it sitting on my shelf for over three and half years, I’m just happy I came to it now and especially with how much I’m using my DSLR the past couple months.

Review: The Dark Knight

There isn’t much more that can be said about this movie that has not been said. It did live up to the hype and more, a great story line, great actors, and the perfect combination of effects to bring out the darkness of gotham. I loved that they really used the tumbler in this movie to the fullest, and that motorcycle was insane. This time around I didn’t know what to expect from this movie, the best part is that it wasn’t just a Batman movie, it was a movie about the corruptable human soul. Christian Bale as usual did an amazing job as Batman, Heath Ledger portrayed the Joker as true insane mastermind, he bourght him across as not just evil but a really lunatic striving for chaos. I think the one who stole the show was Two Face, a character I wasn’t expecting even though I knew Harvey Dent was in this movie and he is Two Face. The only annoyance was that girl, they could have picked any other girl to play that role and she would have been better. The way it came about was unexpected and very surprising. I saw the movie twice in a normal theater, and once in IMAX and it is worth it seeing it IMAX. I don’t even know how they will be able to make a better Batman movie then this one.
