A New Clip from The Banana Splits Movie

A New Clip from The Banana Splits Movie

There’s a certain generation that will recognize the names Fleegle, Bingo, Drooper, and Snorky. Together, they are the Banana Splits, a pop band aimed at children, headliners of The Banana Splits Animation Hour which ran on NBC Saturday mornings from September 7, 1968, to September 5, 1970. The arrived at a time when children’s television was welcoming more live-action production.

Hanna-Barbera, which ruled Saturday morning animation during the 1960s, asked Sid and Marty Kroft to design the band which would be men inside costumes, with celebrated voice actors lip-synching original saccharine tunes.  So successful was this that the Krofts created their own show, H.R. Puffenstuff.

As nostalgia continues to fuel reboots and remakes, here comes a fresh one from Warner Home Entertainment.

The Banana Splits Movie arrives on digital streaming Tuesday, the 13th with a disc debut on August 27. The film offers a new take on the classic characters. The film follows a boy named Harley and his family as they go to a taping of The Banana Splits TV show, which is supposed to be a fun-filled birthday for young Harley. But things take an unexpected turn — and the body count quickly rises. Can Harley, his mom and their new pals safely escape?

In this clip, stage manager Rebecca — played by Sara Canning (The Vampire Diaries, A Series of Unfortunate Events, War for the Planet of the Apes) – learns the show has been cancelled from studio executive Andy, played by Daniel Fox (Generation Kill, Eye in the Sky) … just as does a lurking-in-the-shadows Drooper.

Mage: The Hero Denied Vol. 2 and/or 6 by Matt Wagner

So this is the end, huh? After thirty-some years and around twelve hundred pages of comics, Matt Wagner’s comics fantasy autobiography is done.

(If you don’t know what I’m talking about, the earlier pieces are the two volumes of Mage: The Hero Discovered  from the mid-80s, the two volumes of Mage: The Hero Defined  from the late ’90s, and the prior collection of this 2017 series.)

Almost anything I could say here would be spoilers of one sort or another, so I will try to be vague without being totally pointless. Mage: The Hero Denied, Vol. 6  has a confusing volume number — it’s the second half of Hero Denied, and only number six of the overall series — and should encompass the lowest point of hero Kevin Matchstick and then his triumphant conclusion.

It does that, reasonably well, and gives space for the rest of Kevin’s fictional family to shine: wife Magda, son Hugo and daughter Miranda. They’re not allowed to be heroic in the same way Kevin is, perhaps because they are not comics-makers in the real world, and so can’t actually fight nasties in the metaphor the way he can. But they’re active, and useful, and not just people who Kevin needs to save — which is nice. He’s the one who has to do the important stuff, since he’s the one who looks like Wagner.

The metaphor is still very vague: I don’t think each series is meant to be about a specific comics project or time in Wagner’s life; just a transmutation of “sitting at a table writing words and drawing lines” into “wacking evil with a baseball bat just like the characters he draws.” And the Big Evil of all three series is the same: the middle book was slightly different, in a generational way, but Denied goes back to the original Big Bad. And the Big Bad doesn’t relate to the real-world end of the metaphor at all: there’s no force or entity conspiring to stop comics creators, unless it’s something universal like Death or Entropy or Watching Cat Videos Instead.

Also, at the end of this story Kevin Matchstick is explicitly done with heroing. I want to leave it vague exactly as to why, but that’s another way the metaphor diverges strongly from Wagner’s own life — his own kids are old enough to collaborate with him on comics (his son Brennan colors this book), and he’s clearly still working.

In the end, Mage is much more superhero comic than it is transmuted autobiography. It’s the story of a guy who looks like Matt Wagner but does comic-book stuff instead of creating comic-book stuff. And Wagner is not the kind of creator, it appears, that cares about digging into the wellsprings of creation to tell stories about that act: his shtick, like most of modern commercial comics, is making pretty pictures of people hitting each other until the world is saved.

So, after three stories and more than a thousand pages, Mage ends up as just decent superhero comics with a vague mythological shell and a this-is-me conceit that doesn’t go much deeper than the surface. It might still be too weird for a lot of superhero-comics fans, because they are stunted and blinkered individuals, but sucks to their assmar.

We Must Defend Thanos’s Constitutional Right to Snap His Fingers and Make Half of the Universe Disappear

We try not to get political here at ComicMix, but this is just too important in the wake of current events to ignore.

The Second Amendment is clear: the right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. Granted, when the Founding Fathers wrote that amendment, they understood an “arm” to be a musket, which, if you were a practiced expert, could fire (at best) maybe three or four rounds a minute. But don’t you think that they probably kind of also assumed “arms” would eventually mean that any American or intergalactic Titan, if he or she so chose, could if snap their fingers (which are attached to the arms) and instantly wipe out 50% of life on the planet? If you read — actually read — the Constitution, I think you definitely get this vibe that they saw this kind of situation coming.

We’re sure that Bob Ingersoll will be covering this in detail soon.

REVIEW: Batman: Hush

REVIEW: Batman: Hush

The Hush storyline by Jeph Loeb, Jim Lee, and Scott Williams was a smash sales success because it safely followed the Loeb formula of a 12-issue mystery that enveloped every major member of the rogues’ gallery. First, there was the Holiday killed and the making of Two-Face and here we have the new threat of Hush which connects to young Bruce Wayne’s childhood.

To fit this into the connected Animated Universe, Batman: Hush, out now from Warner Home Entertainment, a host of changes had to be made. The one that did not need alteration is the one that entirely spoils the final third of the 82-minute film.

I’ve not been fond of veteran animation writer Ernie Altbacker’s previous forays into the DCAU, but this contains some of his finest moments. Coupled with above-average source material and fine character designs, this is one of the stronger-looking films in a while.

I have no problem with the replacements: Lady Shiva (Sachie Alessio) for Talia, Batgirl (Peyton List) for Huntress, and Damian for Tim Drake. The latter has the film’s best moment, a hilarious dialogue between Batman and Damian (Stuart Allan) about the Bat now dating the Cat.

Altbacker shifted the emotional center of the film from the comic’s relationship between Bruce Wayne and Tommy Elliot to Batman (Jason O’Mara) and Catwoman (Jennifer Morrison). Given last year’s attention to the wedding that wasn’t, the romance between the pair remains ripe for exploration. The evolving relationship between the two throughout the film makes it eminently watchable. It’s fun watching Selina Kyle adjust to being part of the extended Batman family with some of the film’s nicer moments, Voice actors O’Mara and Morrison blend very nicely together.

Hush has an elaborate scheme involving Batman’s foes, a revenge mystery that keeps Batman guessing until the beginning of the ill-conceived final third, that ignores the comics in favor of something that makes little sense and feels wrong on multiple levels.

Nicely replicated from the comics are the confrontations with Poison Ivy (Peyton List), Superman (Jerry O’Connell) (with some fine Lois Lane [Rebecca Romijn] (lines), and Harley Quinn (Hynden Walch). The emotional toll reaches a crescendo when Batman nearly beats the Joker (Jason Spisak) to death even though, ironically, he’s innocent this time. One could argue that emotional outburst really needs to come later in a moment between Batman and Tommy Elliot (Maury Sterling) but the latter is seriously underdeveloped.

The whole Jason Todd back from the dead thread, something that has never sat right with me in any medium, is absent here, having been covered previously in the series’ Batman: Under the Red Hood entry.

The film is available in all the usual combinations. The Ultra HD 4K edition is in the standard 16×9.1 ratio, nicely capturing the shadows and muted color scheme throughout. The Blu-ray version is equally strong so either edition would be fine for hoe viewing. The accompanying DTS audio track is up to the task, making explosions and sound effects work well with the effective Frederik Wiedmann score.

On the Blu-ray disc, extras include the welcome return of the DC Showcase series of shorts featuring secondary heroes. We have here a Sgt. Rock adventure (14:51), written by Louise & Walter Simonson and Tim Sheridan. It’s fun seeing the combat happy joes of Easy Company, the Iron Major, and the Creature Commandos although I have my quibbles with some story choices. I’d much rather had had a straight war story for variety.

Rounding out the special features, we have Batman: Love in Time of War (16:52), with an assortment of talking heads exploring the Batman/Catwoman relationship in comics, television, and film. There’s a Sneak Peek: Wonder Woman: Bloodlines (9:59) and, finally, “Catwalk” from Batman: The Animated Series.

The Death and Return of Superman Complete Film Collection Gift Set Announced

The Death and Return of Superman Complete Film Collection Gift Set Announced

BURBANK, CA (July 31, 2019) – The adventure that was initially too big for one animated film now arrives as a comprehensive 166-minute tale – with never-before-seen footage – in The Death and Return of Superman Complete Film Collection Gift Set, a numbered, limited edition release available October 1, 2019 from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment. An extension of the popular series of DC Universe Movies, the box set of the combined films The Death of Superman & Reign of the Supermen – produced by Warner Bros. Animation and DC – includes an exclusive “Steel” figurine plus a bonus disc Superman: Doomsday, and will be available as an Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack ($54.97) and Blu-ray Combo Pack ($44.98 SRP). Order due date is August 27, 2019.

The Death and Return of Superman Complete Film Collection Gift Set Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack features an Ultra HD Blu-ray disc in 4K with HDR and a Blu-ray disc featuring the film; the Blu-ray Combo Pack features the film in hi-definition. The Ultra HD Blu-ray and Blu-ray Combo Packs both include a digital version of the film, and each gift set will feature 45 minutes of new enhanced content, an Ultra HD Blu-ray disc in 4K with HDR bonus disc of Superman: Doomsday (first time in 4k) and a dazzling, four-inch figurine of the popular character Steel.

The Death and Return of Superman finds Superman in a fight to the finish when the Man of Steel becomes the only hero who can stand in the way of the monstrous creature Doomsday and his unstoppable rampage. Superman saves the planet, but not himself, leaving Earth’s citizens – and his heroic contemporaries – dealing with a world without Superman. The aftermath of Superman’s death, and the subsequent disappearance of his body, leads to a new mystery – is Superman still alive? The question is further complicated when four new super-powered individuals – Steel, Cyborg Superman, Superboy and the Eradicator – emerge to proclaim themselves as the ultimate hero. In the end, only one will be able to proclaim himself the world’s true Superman.

The Death and Return of Superman completes the quest of Warner Bros. Animation, Warner Bros. Animation and DC to craft a faithful animated version of “The Death of Superman,” DC’s landmark 1992-93 comic phenomenon. Superman Doomsday, the inaugural film in the DC Universe Movies series, told an abridged version of that comics story, as the film’s runtime of 75 minutes allowed for a narrow focus on a core, singular storyline. The 166-minute The Death and Return of Superman restores many of the moments and characters that fans hold dear to their hearts.

The Death and Return of Superman all-star cast matches its epic scope with Jerry O’Connell (Carter, Bravo’s Play by Play, Stand by Me), Rebecca Romijn (X-Men, The Librarians) and Rainn Wilson (The Office, The Meg) leading the way as the voices of Superman, Lois Lane and Lex Luthor, respectively. The potent trio is joined by the DC Universe Movies’ returning voices of the Justice League: Jason O’Mara (The Man in the High Castle, Terra Nova) as Batman, Rosario Dawson (Sin City, Rent, Daredevil) as Wonder Woman, Shemar Moore (S.W.A.T., Criminal Minds) as Cyborg, Nathan Fillion (Castle, The Rookie) as Green Lantern/Hal Jordan, Matt Lanter (Timeless, 90210) as Aquaman, Christopher Gorham (Covert Affairs, Insatiable, Ugly Betty) as The Flash, and Nyambi Nyambi (Mike & Molly, The Good Fight) as Martian Manhunter.

The robust cast also spotlights Cress Williams (Black Lightning) as Steel, Cameron Monaghan (Gotham) as Superboy, Patrick Fabian (Better Call Saul) as Hank Henshaw, and Tony Todd (Candyman) as Darkseid. In addition, the cast includes Charles Halford (Constantine) as Bibbo Bibbowski and The Eradicator, Rocky Carroll (NCIS) as Perry White, Toks Olagundoye (Castle) as Cat Grant, Max Mittleman (Justice League Action) as Jimmy Olsen, Paul Eiding (Ben 10: Omniverse) as Jonathan Kent, Jennifer Hale (Green Lantern: The Animated Series) as Martha Kent, Trevor Devall (Suicide Squad: Hell To Pay) as Dabney Donovan & Bruno Mannheim, Erica Luttrell (Salvation) as Mercy, Jonathan Adams (Last Man Standing) as the Mayor, Rick Pasqualone (Mafia II & Mafia III video games) as Turpin, AND Amanda Troop (Batman Unlimited: Animal Instincts) as Sawyer.

Producer Sam Liu (Gotham by Gaslight, Teen Titans: The Judas Contract) co-directs The Death of Superman portion of the combined film with Jake Castorena (Justice League Action) from a script by New York Times best-selling author Peter J. Tomasi (Green Lantern: Emerald Knights). Liu produces and directs the film’s Reign of the Supermen second-half from a script by Jim Krieg (Batman: Gotham by Gaslight) and Tim Sheridan (Scooby-Doo and the Gourmet Ghost). Amy McKenna (The Death of Superman) is producer, and Alan Burnett (Suicide Squad: Hell To Pay) is co-producer. Executive Producers are Sam Register and James Tucker (Justice League Dark).

“The collected work of The Death and Return of Superman, with its two films and added footage, is truly an epic, authentic animated retelling of ‘The Death of Superman’ saga, giving fans the complete tale just as they have craved since the inception of the DC Universe Movies,” said Mary Ellen Thomas, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Vice President, Family & Animation Marketing.  “The Warner Bros. Animation filmmaking team and the all-star cast have gone far beyond expectations to bring this important Superman story to life.”

Dive into the hidden world of Killer Ballerinas, Shinobi, and the Bowery King, learn the intense planning that went into the film’s incredible horse chase sequence and “dog-fu” fight sequences, and even get an editing master class with director Chad Stahelski and editor Evan Schiff!  Experience four times the resolution of full HD with the 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack, which includes Dolby Vision, bringing entertainment to life through ultra-vivid picture quality. When compared to a standard picture, Dolby Vision can deliver spectacular colors never before seen on a screen, highlights that are up to 40 times brighter, and blacks that are 10 times darker. Additionally, the 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack features Dolby Atmos, which will transport viewers from an ordinary moment into an extraordinary experience with moving audio that flows all around them. Fans will feel like they’re inside the action as the sounds of people, places, things, and music come alive with breathtaking realism and move throughout the space.
 
 The John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack, Blu-ray Combo Pack, and DVD will be available for the suggested retail price of $42.99, $39.99, and $29.95, respectively.
