Forbidden Planet – A Must In London

Pop Culture Central of Europe, the best place for any Geek/Nerd to visit while in London, I visit there on every trip I take to London and there is always something different to see or something that really excites me. Movie memorabilia of every kind, Comics, games and anime collectibles that you only see online, every Star Wars & Harry Potter fan would go nuts there. Still I never get tired of it, I could spend hours there, there is always something that I want to purchase but these days I am lacking space so I always choose items that fit or that make me think “MUST HAVE IT”

One section that people forget about is there HUGE comic and graphic novel collection down stairs, I picked up all of the novels by the comedian Kevin Smith, read a few pages and they are pretty funny and he is a funny guy so decided to take all his books. Then there is the Transformers section which have all the stuff dating back to the 80s up to the new things from IDW in 2012. They sold some fake weaponry which looked really cool but I didn’t want to risk taking that on a plane with me. When walking around upstairs I honestly don’t know what to pick up, I tell myself not to go overboard, I never have enough space in my bags but then I don’t reason well with myself and pick up a few things that I end up walking out with a smile, if your wondering what they are its the items in the last picture in this post.

Superman vs. The Elite

Superman’s effectiveness as a super hero comes into question when a new group of super powerful crusaders, known as “The Elite” appear on the scene, led by British public identity hero Manchester Black. As super heroes, the Elite know no bounds, and are more than willing to kill, even on a massive scale, to stop villainy—putting them on a collision course with the ever-ethical and decidedly non-lethal Man of Steel.

This movie just didn’t click with me the wait I want it to. Seems like it had some good and interesting ideas in it but overall it does a bad job at handling and developing them in the story. But if you are into Superman or just superhero stories in general, this animated movie is still well worth checking out. It still has plenty of superhero action in it, as well as some other familiar genre aspects. But the villans in it just felt weak, there was no major development for them, but I liked the action towards the end, made it more exciting to see Superman in this way. The main idea is questioning where the world needs a hero with morals like Superman or one that would do whatever needs to be done and more like The Elites. If you like animated superhero movies, then this is worth watching.

Scandal – Must Watch Show

Olivia has left her role as White House Communications Director for the President to start her own crisis management firm. She is a professional ‘fixer’ who makes problems go away before anyone even knows they exist.

This show is only 7 episodes but it’s insane, I wasn’t expecting it to turn out this way and I watched it basically over two days, the only free time I had was spent watching all the episodes. The story is about Olivia Pope and how she fixes things in Washington DC, and most of the time for the right people, and sometimes for the White House. I love the eccentric characters, there are some messed up people in this show, and it goes in directions you are not expecting, the story pulls you in from the first second, by the 6th episode I wanted to punch my laptop, I couldn’t believe how it got twisted up, its been renewed for season 2. If you haven’t seen it, watch it, you will thank me later.

Review: Justice League – Doom

Vandal Savage steals confidential files Batman has compiled on the members of the Justice League, and learns all their weaknesses.

Short and Sweet, another DC Movie with the Justice League facing another formidable enemy. This time around the Justice League face several foes separating them and neutralizing them. The animation is decent and story gets interesting, I wanted it to get deeper to give it that more depth but it was entertaining and for a short movie it was entertaining, if you are fan of DC Comics or animation that you will enjoy this movie.

Review: Batman – Year One

Batman: Year One is a DC Universe animated feature based on the classic Frank Miller comics that re-imagined Batman’s origins in a darker, grittier fashion, and would go on to become the seminal tale of who Batman is, and how he came to be. A wealthy playboy and a Chicago cop both return to Gotham City where their lives will intersect in unexpected ways.

Year One is story of Batman from the beginning of Gotham and the state that it was. This was the entire point of Miller’s comic: bringing readers into the minds of Bruce Wayne and Jim Gordon to show the thoughts and motivations that led each man down the path to becoming the character we know today. What I liked about the animation is that it told a gritty story, without all the gadgets, just batman as he became The Dark Knight. I really liked Jim Gordon in this animated movie, he was a deep dark character who has attitude and I think he was a little more developed then even Batman to a degree. Batman cleaning up Gotham and Gordon taking over the law of the town. The only thing I wanted was it to be a little longer and for them to jump into the Frank Miller story, make it a bit darker and for sure a longer movie.

Comic Art is one of thing that I enjoy seeing the most, I enjoy people taking comic art work to another level. Lister has combined different types of art such as pop art, street art, and the youth culture to make this unique piece of work. You can his work was totally inspired by Superheroes, Wolverine being my favorite and Skeletor is pretty cool too.

The Green Lantern Models

I made this model purchase before the movie even came out, I was so excited to see the Green Lantern since GL is one of my favorite characters from DC Comics for a long time, by far one of the best. I just couldn’t wait for movie so I preordered the Hal Jordan statue using his ring, and the Green Lantern Lantern itself which came with the Green Lantern ring.

I was surprised how cool the Hal Jordan statue was, very detailed look and the green punch forming around him, I loved it. Then Lantern was amazing, it looked exactly like the one from the movi and the added bonus was that the ring fit perfectly, and if you bring the ring close to the Lantern it surprised me, the Lantern lights up which is insanely cool. This is displayed proudly with the rest of my comic and movie memorabilia. Can’t wait for the GL2 to come out, they said its supposed to be darker and edgier which is exactly what it needs to be and they have so much story to use from the Green Lantern comic books, I just can’t wait.
