Doggone it! This is a new look at a very old Children’s Book Character. I mean, I read this book when I was a kid, back in the before times. And while the big red Dog has been animated, I think this is Clifford’s first time on the big screen. How fun… (but please don’t show his poop!)
Yeow! That’s a long title. Again, as a DC Comics guy, I’m not familiar with this character, so I can’t speak to how this stacks up against the comic book source material. But it looks kinda good. I’m still on the fence though… The lead guy doesn’t seem that dynamic/heroic.
DC ANIMATION’S The Long Halloween Part 1 is a stylish tale that looks like an homage to ‘The Godfather’. And it’s good! I never read the comic book it is based on, so I can’t speak to how closely they followed the source material. But the movie looks great, and the voice talent is spot on.
The only two negatives I have are: 1) The film’s pacing is a little slow for a superhero movie. Though does fit the detective noir genre they’re emulating. And 2) It’s part one of a two part story, so there’s no real resolution, which is frustrating.
MY 1st Impression: Batman: The Long Halloween Part One is well-worth the cost of the Blu-Ray, or the digital download. And stay tuned in until until the bitter end, Because there is an End-Credit scene.
What can I say? You should watch this!
I never got into the G.I. Joe cartoons, so I’m not caught up with who’s who in the G.I. Joe franchise. But this ‘Snake Eyes’ guy seems pretty cool. Though I hear he didn’t talk in the cartoon version. But this is an origin story. Maybe they’ll address that.
SPOILER IMAGE BELOW…
DCU: Who is the New Supergirl? The new Flash film doesn’t seem to be using the blonde Kara Zor-el, from the CW series. So is the film using the comic book character Cir-el? And if so, who is that?
Introduced in DC Comics over a decade ago, Cir-el is from the future, and she’s the daughter of Superman/Clark Kent & Lois. Her secret identity name is Lara Lane Kent. But comics are fickle things. Because currently, in the comics, Superman & Lois have a son named Jonathan and no daughter. And in the CW Series, ‘Superman & Lois’, the couple have twin sons, and no daughter.
So, who is this new Supergirl? Well we probably won’t know for sure until they decide to tell us. But a behind-the-scenes image of the actress, Sasha Calle, makes me think Cir-el. But if that’s true, then will we see Superman in the film as well? After all, in the Snyder cut of Justice League, Zack Snyder confirmed that Lois is pregnant.
ADULT SWIM: You can watch the first 2-minutes of the season 5 premiere episode here… Rick and Morty is returning for season 5 on Sunday, June 20 at 11pm…
HBO MAX: After about a year with nothing, thanks to the pandemic, we finally get a peek at the 3rd season of Titans. AND, they give us a glimpse of the Red Hood storyline! It’s only a teaser, so it’s very short. But I’m pretty excited to see the show now that it’s on HBO MAX. A bigger budget perhaps?
PARAMOUNT+ : Picard is coming back, with ‘Q’ attached, according to the new trailer for season 2. So hold on to your butts, because it looks like reality is about to shift…
