DC NEW FRONTIER ANIMATED MOVIE review

SPOILERS....



I liked this movie a lot. The animation is perfect and just highlights how much Darwyn Cooke's art style supports the translation. I wish the introduction to the characters and situations was a little more clearly defined. I… Continue

Jumper Jumpscars GN



Written: Nunzio Defilippis & Christina Weir



Drawn: Brian Hurtt



Planning on seeing movie -- B+

Not going to set movie -- C-





This review is being written before I have seen the movie. It will be interesting to look back afterwards and see if my thoughts change. From the trailers it seems that the Jumper (Hayden Christensen) is the protagonist. The questions are.. is he good or bad? and who is… Continue

Both movies did have a message, missing MIA's in vietnam and the Soviet occupation of Afganistan but obviously had no basis in any violent warfare reality. The ending of Rambo III was particularly disappointing as helicopter vs… Continue
