On February 28th WB will release another direct-to-DVD for the Justice League named Justice League: Doom, which is based on the comic JLA: Tower of Babel by Mark Waid.
I’m not familiar with mentioned story arc. Based on the trailers released so far I still don’t have much of a clue what the plot is exactly about other than that the Justice League will be fighting some bad guys again – which is basically the plot of any superhero movie.
So, in that regard the trailers aren’t convincing. But fortunately the DC Universe animated features have at least top notch animation which alone makes it worth watching. So, this is another must-see for me.
Classic cat and mouse enemies Tom & Jerry will return to DVD and Blu-Ray in the US on October 25th with remastered Audio and Picture according to TVShowsOnDVD in a Golden Collection with 37 shorts on it.
In the Netherlands we already had an almost complete set being released years ago of which pictures can still be found on my old blog.
Nevertheless I’m curious about this new US release and what extras will be on it. There can never be enough Tom & Jerry shorts!
The Road Runner and Coyote were already transformed to CGI versions with new shorts since decades of these Looney Tunes icons debuting last year.
According to Comingsoon Warner Bros is planning to release more Looney Tunes shorts in CGI format and 3D this. The three new shorts will feature Elmer Fud together with Daffy Duck, Tweety & Sylvester, and another Road Runner & Wile E. Coyote short.
The shorts will also used Mel Blanc’s voice via some previous recording WB discovered.
Challenge of the GoBots I’ve always considered to be a Transformers rip-off, a bad rip-off that is.
The designs of the GoBots are just so cheap and ridiculous. The series itself it just too childish, which isn’t that weird considering it’s made by family friendly toon studio Hanna Barbera. The human characters are so annoying I wished each episode Cykill would actually kill them.
But at some point Challenge of the GoBots becomes so bad, it somehow becomes intruiging.
Last month WB released a few Challenge of the GoBots episodes on DVD via their Manufacture-on-Demand program. Even though I think Challenge of the GoBots sucks, as an animation fan I’m somehow still compelled to get myself a copy to see just how bad it is.
Any spin off or reboot attempt for the classic Looney Tunes is looked at with great skepticism.
When WB announced that a new show starring Bugs Bunny and Daffy was in the works I was very skeptic.
Now the first few video clips have been released and after seeing these all I can say is: WTF?
The design looks ok, but the animation looks like it pre-dates even the original Looney Tunes which is already 60 years old!And what’s up with the dialogue? It looks like two boring old farts talking! Where is the humor and craziness?
Sure, the clips are short and not an entire episode, but this doesn’t look promising.
