Justice League Dark

Posted in Cartoons, Comic Books, DC Comics, Fantasy, horror, Magic with tags , , , , , on November 18, 2016 by chrisdsav

A new DC Animated movie that’s in the same Universe as the last three JL movies War, Atlantis and Vs The Teen Titans)  and the Batman animated films (Son of, Vs Robin and Bad Blood.) We have the JL Dark with a bit of a roster change compared to the comic in the launch of the NEW 52 back in 2011. This team consists of Constantine, Deadman, Swamp Thing, Zatanna and Etrigan the Demon. The cover art for the home video release is also below the only problem I have with it is the stupid Warner Brothers Animation marketing team felt the need to put BATMAN on the fucking cover on the front. I mean REALLY DC that’s not needed. Bats is not part of this JL. You make it seem like its his team when this team is more being led by John Constantine ( as voiced by Matt Ryan from the cancelled TV show.)
It comes out on Digital in Jan and then disk Feb.

Synopsis below

 When innocent civilians begin committing unthinkable crimes across Metropolis, Gotham City and beyond, Batman must call upon mystical counterparts to eradicate this demonic threat to the planet. Enter Justice League Dark, reluctantly led by the Hellblazer himself, John Constantine. Like Batman, Constantine is a cunning, often cynical loner who is the best at his chosen profession – but quickly realizes the sinister forces plaguing the planet will require help from other supernatural alliances. Forming a new “league” with sorceress Zatanna, otherworldly Deadman, and Jason Blood and his powerful alter ego Etrigan the Demon, this team of Dark Arts specialists must unravel the mystery of Earth’s supernatural plague and contend with the rising, powerful villainous forces behind the siege – before it’s too late for all of mankind.

Ghostbusters Cartoons

Posted in 80s, Cartoons, DVD, entertainment, ghosts, horror, remakes with tags , on July 12, 2016 by chrisdsav

There was an announcement a few weeks ago that we are getting a new Ghostbusters cartoon set in the future. This sounds very similar to Dan Akroyds original script for Ghostbusters which was to be set in the future, I’m sure there is no coincidence. Up to this point Ghostbusters cartoons have been hit or miss there is no denying that the Real Ghostbusters was a hit. The Extreme Ghostbusters depending on who you talk to is a hit or miss among fans. It did give us a abetter diverse cast than what we have coming out Friday.

I’m not going to go over the entire show so many other people have done that but I will point out some of the highlights of the show and my favorite episodes, including thoughts on  the Extreme. Sorry Filmmation Ghostbusters I just don’t have enough interest to cover your cartoon based on the 1970s tv show.  The Real Ghostbusters recently returned in an IDW mini series crossing them over with the ongoing story arc.

ghostbusters_get_real_comic_issue_1_823638

ALL EPISODES ARE NOW AVAILABLE ON HOME VIDEO however the new set does not contain all the episodes and lacks any bonus material

Collect Call of the Cthulhu

If this is not the BEST episode of the entire cartoon I don’t know what is. The Necronomicon is stolen from the NY public Library the same library seen in the beginning of Ghostbusters the movie. The guys team up with a spell caster from Miskatonic university and actually fight Cthulhu and his cult of worshipers. ” He makes Gozer look like little Mary Sunshine” Its dark its drawn well and it kicks ass go buy it now

Ragnarok and Roll

A guy depressed over losing his girl friend decides to bring about the end of the world with a magic flute than can summon some bad shit. This episode is one of the darkest ever and a touching love story. A great moment is when he comes to his senses with the help of his faithful companion his ex and the guys and cant stop Ragnarok Egon put a plan together and commands his team perfectly

The Night Halloween Was forever

Sam Hain the living embodiment of Halloween comes back to bring about Halloween forever. He appears in two episodes both equally good. They talk about the lore of Halloween and there is some cool imagery. I like the second episode more minus the Jr Ghostbusters who are annoying Sam turns the firehouse into his new headquarters.

The Boogey Man Cometh

A look into the history of Egon Spengler as he was terrified of the Boogey man now BM has a voice so raspy and creepy only Frank Welker ( Megatron, Dr.Claw Slimer) could pull it off. In the second episode Egon gets thrown off a building and nearly dies and has to come to grips with the fall but he also frees the Boogey man from  his prison. Its darker in tone I think and really hits it on all levels.

Extreme Ghostbusters

Over all this show was hit or miss I like the animation at times and its really dark and moody in almost every episode. You have the four kids being trained by Egon and its something we had hoped the 3rd movie should have been about. Alas with the Death of Harold Ramis  we didn’t get that we got ….well see it Friday

Time Life Warner put out a great box set filled with bonus material and the toons just got released on dvd again last week, but be warned its a paltry set compared to what we got in 2009. No word on Extreme Ghostbusters yet.

Stay tuned for another Ghostbuster review later this week.

Dr.Chris Record Spotlight : Record Store Day

Posted in Cartoons, music, vampires, vinyl on April 16, 2016 by chrisdsav

Started back in 2012 to help generate interest in the classic music on a format which had all but disappeared  a decade ago. Over the the last 6 years vinyl has made a resurgence in the market and it’s booking. This is great for stores which have lost much profit to the Internet and physical  media has taken a back door to digital  downloads.
I stopped by That’s Entertainment  in Worcester  MA and Joe’s Albums. PETE the curator of all that is music in the store I been buying my comic books since I was 16 was in charge of today’s events .
The vinyl can be expensive or at just the right price I thought I share some of what I picked up today.

NOSFERATU

Composed by James Bernard for the 1922 original unauthorized  adaptation of Bram Stoker’s Dracula. Performed by the City Prague Philharmonic Orchestra. Such an eerie score to a company one of the first Vampire movies. Wax Works Records recently put out a soundtrack to the 1970’s remake recently. We will be doing a spotlight on that one soon.

Disney the Silly Symphony Collection
The Skeleton Dance is a cute little song from Disney dating back to 1929. (Notice the theme here) written by Carl Stalling. It startled critics years ago giving them a Fright by its animation and kicked off the Silly Symphony going from 29-39.

How To Train Your Dragon.
An Academy  Award nominated  score by John Powell it really fits the the type of movie this is about a boy and his Dragon in a viking village gripped by Xenophobia  over the destruction  Dragons cause.

I also picked up Carl Douglas Kung Fu Fighting. I couldn’t help my self.
