Young Justice #10

Young Justice #10 comic reviewYoung Justice #10 concludes the comic’s multiverse-jumping arc with our intrepid heroes kicking the butts of the not-so-heroic-heroes of Earth-3 before finally making it home. While I enjoyed the arc, and will miss this version of Stephanie Brown stepping up to take on the role of the main Bat-character in the alternate world as Batwoman, I do have to agree with Impulse that the storyline peaked with the team meeting the Zoo Crew.

As has been the comic’s set-up, this issue also provides flashbacks to another member of the team fleshing out the past of Jinny Hex (and her inheritance of all kinds of weird weapons left to her by great-great-grandfather (one of which makes her, literally, a much larger member of the team).

Us

in DVD Reviews 

  • Title: Us
  • IMDb: link

Us Blu-ray reviewUs is a creepy horror flick featuring evil doppelgangers rising up from the sewers hoping to kill off and replace the human race. The film is primarily centered around the Wilson family (Lupita Nyong’o, Winston Duke, Shahadi Wright Joseph, and Evan Alex), but opens the story broader as the scope of the attacks become realized. Writer/director Jordan Peele succeeds in creating a bizarre experience as each member of the family comes face-to-face with more murderous version of themselves (the tie-in to a carnival house of mirrors is a nice touch). While disturbing at times, and at times bordering on unintentionally funny, the film doesn’t have the payoff to elevate the film past a good genre film (and the late reveal was far from shocking).

Available on DVD, Blu-ray, and 4K, extras include outtakes, deleted scenes, and short featurettes on the main characters, shooting sequences from different perspectives, the actors, and the movie’s dancing scene. Horror fans should enjoy themselves here, although the film began to lose me the moment it tried to explain the existence of the red-jumpsuited evil clones.

Black Cat #6

Black Cat #6 comic reviewBlack Cat #6 moves away from the previous issues as it doesn’t involve Felicia Hardy breaking into a well-known location within the Marvel Universe. However, it does continue to follow-up on various threads introduced in previous issues. One of these includes Odessa Drake and the Thieves Guild going after the Black Fox.

As for the Black Cat, she’s given the night out with a surprisingly good first date with Batroc the Leaper which involves dinner, some late night breaking-and-entering, burglary, and other carnal pursuits. While Felicia doesn’t expect much from Batroc, I was surprised by his inclusion here (and, like Felicia, surprised to discover how charming he can be when he isn’t bouncing around in a ridiculous outfit).
