Although I have not fully grasped the cultural influence The Goonies has had over the past 35 years, I still found the movie to be a fun, adventurous romp with one of the better ensemble gathered who had such great chemistry with one another.
The DC Universe: 10th Anniversary Collection is an excellent release that even though some of the animated movies aren’t the best, having them in one place is nice. The only issue I have is, there is going to be more releases and given how physical media is going, not entirely sure there will be a volume 2 release, but who knows.
Far from perfect, and not nearly on the level of “The Walking Dead”, “The Strain”: The Complete First Season is still a well made, nicely shot series with, for the most part, good and engaging performances led by Corey Stoll and David Bradley. This Collector’s Edition Blu-ray release offers some more features as well as a bust though honestly, unless you can nab this on sale, I’m not so sure if it’s worth the upgrade.
Justice League: Throne of Atlantis is not DCUA’s best output to date but it’s a perfectly entertaining film with a few flaws, primarily the limited running time. But the voice casting is mostly good, even Jason O’Mara, and on the whole I enjoyed it and some of the darker humor and taking the PG-13 rating to the limits in terms of animated affair.
Cabin Fever: Patient Zero could’ve just been condensed down to Patient Zero has it has no bearing on the first movie and is merely a generic, flesh-eating virus movie like any other. The acting is also a bit wonky with Sean Astin surprisingly giving the best performance and keeping this from being a complete waste of time.
Justice League: War might not be the best of the DC Universal Animated Movie line and a step down from Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox and The Dark Knight Returns, but it is entertaining enough though the voice casting this go around isn’t the best, though we might be stuck with them given War is to be the first of connecting DCUA movies.
Although I have not fully grasped the cultural influence The Goonies has had over the past 25 years, I still found the movie to be a fun, adventurous romp with one of the better ensemble gathered who had such great chemistry with one another. The Blu-ray is good enough both in terms of the video and audio transfers while the features, albeit light in the featurettes department, more than makes up for it with the cast and director commentary/reunion.
