"Little House on the Prairie" has become an entertainment staple in my house. My wife began feverishly DVRing the show and trying to catch all the episodes in some semblance of order since running across it on GMC a couple of years back. Along the way, she sucked my sons into the family-oriented drama as well. She loves it so much I actually made a friend of mine drive 40 miles out of the way on a road trip so I could visit and take pictures of the Ingalls’ homestead in Kansas for her. You can only imagine her excitement when it was announced they were releasing "Little House on the Prairie: Season One & the Pilot Movie" in a remastered deluxe edition Blu-ray that includes unedited versions of each episode and the pilot movie.

DC Comics is doing their very best to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Dark Knight’s first appearance with a new weekly series entitled Batman Eternal. Many will immediately scream, “What! ANOTHER Batman title?” Bystanders who don’t hold a fanatical affection for Gotham’s super hero will just stew in their own anger. Caped Crusader enthusiasts will jump up and down in ecstasy… and they have a reason to! Read more
Of all the mainstream Marvel super heroes, Captain America is my most cherished. His first adventure was hands down my favorite of the Phase 1 films. The classic WWII setting and epic feel is what captured my fancy. It was like an Indiana Jones movie blended together with the comic book world. It makes perfect sense, as it was directed by a guy who cut his teeth working with Steven Spielberg and George Lucas. Although it doesn’t have the same historic flavor as its predecessor, “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” still succeeds at being the second-best of all the Marvel movies up to now. Read more
"Captain America: Winter Soldier" hits theaters and I have to say I’m very excited to see it. The flag-waving wonder is my favorite of the Avengers and certainly one of my top five characters from Marvel Comics. Although he’s the most well-known, Cap isn’t the first patriotic super hero to go up against foreign spies and bad guys for the good ole U.S. of A. That privilege belongs to MLJ Comics’ The Shield.

Southern gothic supernatural thrillers seem to be gaining some momentum lately. “Last Kind Words” and “A Haunting in Connecticut 2: Ghosts of Georgia” immediately come to mind. The middle of nowhere is a cheap and easy place to make a movie. There’s no denying that there’s very little creepier than the darkness of the woods and the isolation felt in a rural setting. RLJ Entertainment’s “The Invoking” is another fine example of what can be done with a small budget in the backwoods of any state’s countryside. Read more
DC Comics brings their latest event which unified its universe to the graphic novel format with “Justice League: Trinity War.” The cataclysmic battle crossed the pages of Justice League, Justice League of America, Justice League Dark, Trinity of Sin: Pandora, Trinity of Sin: The Phantom Stranger, Constantine, and the New 52 Free Comic Book Day Special for 2012. It was a colossal endeavor that brought together almost every character from every corner of the DC world. Read more
Warner Archive brings “Green Lantern: The Animated Series” to Blu-ray in a two-disc set. Another of DC Comics’ Cartoon Network properties to get canceled before it even ramped up, the collection includes all 26 episodes. Its death was contributed to poor toy sales from the live-action movie, although I don’t really know why that should’ve affected a completely separate television show. Fans of the Emerald Knight can now celebrate knowing they can watch it any time they want in the comfort of their own home. Read more
I don’t know what it is about animated shows based on DC Comics characters as of late. It seems that as soon as we get attached to them, they disappear from the television line-up. “Beware the Batman” is the latest show to go the way of the Bermuda Triangle and vanish into thin air. Read more

Scream Factory is branching out in a very big and positive way. Once known as the king of horror movie re-issues, they’re starting to grab up some fine new material and broaden their horizons. If you count the Chiller Original Movies, then you know they’ve been heading this way for a while now. French sci-fi/ horror gem “Dead Shadows” can now be added to the list. Imagine “Night of the Comet” blended together with “The Thing” and you get an idea of what to expect from this creepy little flick. Read more
