For a lot of fans, Enterprise must have seemed to be the red-headed step-child of Star Trek shows. However, the show has been re-issued on Blu-ray and stands up as a worthy entry into the Star Trek franchise.

Those wanting a faithful adaptation of the iconic comic book will get their money's worth.  As a filmed adaptation, it is stymied only by a curious bit of miscasting and material that just-plain doesn't work as well on the screen as it did on the page.

When it comes to splatter and gore, you can count me out. But when it comes to classic horror films, movies that create believable even moving characters (however misshapen or evil) then I'm in.

The Dark Knight Returns Part I delivers exactly what it promises and little more.  It does indeed bring the Frank Miller comic to animated life with as much faithfulness as can be expected.

DVD Reviews of Les Vampires and Korczak

Dan Lybarger

The appeal for silent movies comes not from imagining how a moldy piece of nitrate might have entertained our great grandparents more than staring at a blank wall but in catching a unique type of storytelling that's just about impossible to pull off today.

Rather than take multi-issue story arcs and try to whittle them down to 65-75 minutes, this time we have a single 'important' comic book brought to life in a perfectly appropriate 74 minutes.

It has never made sense to me that those preoccupied with how movies are delivered have for years written off "physical media" as "dead" even though the evidence shows it isn't happening and won't for years to come.

Scott Mendelson | Posted 12.11.2011 | Entertainment

The ideas and concepts first found in Frank Miller's Batman: Year One have been so pilfered through over the last 25 years that it feels strange to see this work adapted for film without any narrative alterations.

This 63-year-old feature looked almost as if it had been shot last week. I was intensely aware of Moira Shearer's heavy make-up and could literally see Anton Walbrook's pores. It was fascinating, hypnotic, but also more than a little distracting.
