  • Remembering a classic – Batman: Mask of the Phantasm

    Remembering a classic – Batman: Mask of the Phantasm

    There is a fantastic scene in Batman: Mask of the Phantasm that elevates it so far above other Batman films in terms of its story and character development.  The scene is a flashback to when Bruce Wayne was developing the Batman persona. He has been out fighting crime, but realizes that criminals do not fear […]

    The Science Behind Pixar

    Hey everyone! I’ve been gone a while. I’ve spent most of September editing a small feature. Now that it’s all done. I can get back to things here. I do have some pieces in the works, but I did want to take a moment to share some moments from when my wife and I visited […]

    This will be the first DeaconsDen flashback review. These will be reviews that I didn’t cover at the time of their release, but are perfect to revisit for an upcoming release.

I always love when these movies come out because they tend to cover storylines in the DC world that most likely won’t make it to the big screen, yet they work so well on the small screen. […]

  • Review – Justice League: Gods and Monsters

    Review – Justice League: Gods and Monsters

       The latest DC Universe animated movie takes us to an alternate universe. This actually isn’t new territory for these films, but usually it involves the alternative characters conflicting with the versions of the characters we are mostly familiar with.

    Youth is not wasted on these young people: Young Justice Season 1

       So I knew of the reputation of this show after it had gone off the air. Like another short-lived animated show, The Spectacular Spider-Man, Young Justice ended before it could truly begin. The first season had been on Netflix streaming for a while and I had it in my list. I finally started it […]

    Return to Thundera

    Inspired by my recent contribution for my good friend Vic over at Vic’s Movie Den I wrote a post recommending 5 Animated Series. It was a fun narrowing this down to five quality series that I feel adults would love as well as kids. I previously wrote up one of the shows on the list, […]
