Black Cat #3 comic reviewBlack Cat #3 wraps up the heist of the Sanctum Sactorum as Black Cat an her team struggle just to make it out alive of Doctor Strange‘s home after losing control of their wizard Xander. Getting out of Doctor Strange’s home is challenge enough without a crazed power-mad wizard trying to kill you.

Even with Felicia and her henchmen in survival mode for the entire comic, there’s still plenty of fun to be had including the unlikely help of Doctor Strange’s ghost dog (yes, I said ghost dog) who mistakes the intruder for Silver Sable (an error that Black Cat does nothing to rectify and quickly enlists the mutt’s help in her escape).

Batman: Hush

  • Title: Batman: Hush

Batman: Hush Blu-ray reviewThe latest DC Comics animated feature is an adaptation of the hugely popular twelve-part mini-series by Jeph Loeb and Jim Lee. The film takes quite a few liberties with the source material, even going so far as to change the identity of the villain named Hush who the arc introduced as a mastermind attacking both Batman (Jason O’Mara) and Bruce Wayne from multiple angles prior to revealing himself. Although some cutting may be necessary to fit within the structure of the movie, the script still oddly keeps an excessive amount of the (mostly unnecessary) thread involving Superman (Jerry O’Connell) and Poison Ivy (Peyton List).

Fitting into the existing storyline of the Son of Batman movies, with only a cameo from Damian, the script does take steps to push Batman into more of a classic costume for most of the film to more closely resemble the look of the comic (if only the those in charge of the project had done the same with the plot).

Elementary - Reichenbach Falls television review

The penultimate episode of Elementary brings a close to the season-long arc involving billionaire vigilante Odin Reichenbach (James Frain). The deaths of Morland Holmes (John Noble), the professional criminals he used to commit the crime, and the detectives’ star witness against Reichenbach leave Sherlock (Jonny Lee Miller) and Watson (Lucy Liu) back at square one with no new plan on how to pick-up the fight. Holmes struggles with an outside-the-box solution for their foe, which, given his past, leads Watson to suspect her partner of taking the law into his own hands.
