Over the years, we have seen so many iterations of Batman. From the original comics to a campy 1960s TV show and then to the big screen with a whimsical take on the character in the 1989 film starring Michael Keaton to a more dramatic take with the newer films starring Christian Bale and Ben Affleck. However, in 1992, we also saw a new animated ser... Read More

Now, those of us who grew... Read More

Dwayne Johnson (The Fate of The Furious) has certainly come a long way in his career. Not only has he proven himself to be good at comedy but also has also stuck with his biggest strength - action films. His larger than life persona makes him the perfect guy for these types of roles, and Skyscraper is no exception.The film featu... Read More

You just can't keep a good Superhero "verse" down. In 2018 The CW expanded their "DCverse" with Black Lightning - the story of Jefferson Pierce, a high school principal, and father of two who has a very big secret. It just completed its first season run on the CW on April 17, and now Warner Bros. has released a 2-disc Blu-ra... Read More
