The Doom Patrol: The Complete First Season On Blu-ray Disc Review

The Doom Patrol is among the most praised DC Universe live action television programs to be streaming on DC’s online service. The series features a diverse group of misfit characters that are unencumbered by FCC language guidelines so like you might see on HBO, sometimes the characters will drop a few four letter words I never even heard exclaimed in DCEU theatrical releases, at least thus far. At the time of this writing, Joker is due to be released theatrically in less than a week and I am very excited to see how that film plays out. Featuring Cyborg, played by a different actor here, the 15 episodes that make up the complete first season is about a band of super powered societal cast-outs that unite in spite of an indifferent world to discover who is behind the disappearance of Dr. Niles Caulder aka The Chief. The cast also features genre film and television alumni Alan Tudyk, Brendan Fraser and a special appearance by Timothy Dalton among others.

The series now has a 95% Rotten Tomatoes score and now the complete first season is being released on Blu-ray Disc, DVD and Digital Copy for different platforms, but sold separately. The optical disc format editions will be released at retailers on and offline courtesy of Warner Brothers Home Entertainment on October 1, 2019.

The Blu-ray Disc sets features all 15 season one episodes in unsurpassed 1080p Full HD and look even more amazing when unconverted to 2160p UHD resolution. A well mixed and aggressive English DTS-HD MA 5.1 Surround Soundtrack. English Subtitles for the Deaf and Hearing Impaired are encoded for the entire first season as well. A coupon for a limited time only redeemable code for a Digital Copy is enclosed within the two-disc Blue BD case as well as an insert with TV episode information. Deleted scenes and a gag reel are included too.

The Doom Patrol: The Complete First Season will debut on Blu-ray Disc and DVD, but sold separately on Tuesday, October 1, 2019 as well as available on streaming device platforms at retailers on and offline courtesy of Warner Home Video.

DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow: The Complete Fourth Season On Blu-ray Disc Review

After the untimely cancelation of Constantine on NBC years ago, the folks at Warner Brothers and DC have been wise enough to keep Matt Ryan as a guest star on the Arrowverse TV shows that air on The CW here in the United States and in addition to this, he has provided the voice for the animated counterpart to his character in DC animated features and I really hope if they bring the character to the big screen once again, they keep Matt Ryan for the role because I really cannot imagine anyone else doing a better job with the character. The role fits Ryan like a glove in a way that Deadpool fit Ryan Reynolds like a glove too. The fourth season has DC’s Legends of Tomorrow traveling through time to prevent escaped magical creatures from infecting history. The cast includes genre stars Brandon Routh, Caity Lotz, Ramona Young and Dominic Purcell among many others. 

All sixteen episodes on Blu-ray Disc of the fourth season are presented beautifully in 1080p full HD with a rousing English DTS-HD MA Surround Soundtrack and English Subtitles for the Deaf and Hearing Impaired encoded for all the episodes on the disc. Blu-ray extra content includes a storytelling featurette, a look at the post production of the show, deleted scenes and a gag reel. In addition to the insert with episode information within the three-disc Blue BD Case, there is also a limited time only redeemable code for a Digital Copy of the season too.

DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow: The Complete Fourth Season is available on Blu-ray Disc now at retailers on and offline courtesy of Warner Brothers Home Entertainment.

Ruairi Robinson's "Corporate Monster," a new Horror Sci-fi proof of concept short film, debuts FREE online from Academy Award-nominated director.



A dangerously unstable man starts to see monsters all around us.
Los Angeles, CA – (September 19, 2019) – Director Ruairi Robinson(Fifty Percent Grey, Silent City, BlinkyTM & Leviathan), Academy Award-nominated Irish filmmaker dropped his latest film, Corporate Monster, a proof of concept short, free to view online. Written by Robinson & Eoin Rogers, the sci-fi horror film, with VFX by Robinson’s The Kaiju Meat Company, stars Kett Turton and Jenna Coleman as a couple confronted with the reality that either he is just dangerously unstable, or there are in fact monsters all around us.  

Kett Turton in Corporate Monster
In Corporate Monster, after being phased out of his job, a dangerously unstable man’s life spirals out of control when the prescription pills he takes start to have a side effect: they allow him to see the parasitic beings that have long been puppeteering our world from the shadows. The rich and powerful are not even human, and they are feeding on us. He sets about trying to save his girlfriend from them, but it’s just as possible they are just a side effect of the pills, a hallucination. Is he a savior or a monster himself?
Corporate Monster was produced by Nick Ryan of Titan II/ Floodland Pictures, with executive producers Jay Douglas of Rebellion Studios, Robinson under The Kaiju Meat Company shingle, and Jessica Rudzewicz, and associate producer Anthony Tai. The film was financed by FÍS ÉIREANN/SCREEN IRELAND and Rebellion Studios.

"I love stories that shatter the protagonist's lens, so it was an absolute pleasure watching Ruairi at the helm conduct his visual symphony. We're confident that enough people will get excited about it to warrant a feature or series so that we can expand the world," said Jay Douglas, Executive Producer.
The Corporate Monster filmmaking team includes: Cinematography by: Macgregor, Music by: Steve Moore, Practical Special Effects by: David Roddham, Production Design by: Marie Lanna, Sound Design by: Brandon Jones, Edited by Ruairi Robinson Visual Effects by: The Kaiju Meat Company

BURBANK, CA – September 17, 2019 –HBO Max, the upcoming streaming platform from WarnerMedia set to launch in the spring of 2020, has secured the first-ever U.S. streaming rights to all 12 seasons of the massive comedy hit, The Big Bang Theory. All 279 episodes will be available on HBO Max when it launches in spring of 2020. In addition, TBS has extended its agreement to continue airing the show through 2028.
“Few shows define a generation and capture mainstream zeitgeist like The Big Bang Theory,” said Robert Greenblatt, Chairman, WarnerMedia Entertainment and Direct-To-Consumer. ”We’re thrilled that HBO Max will be the exclusive streaming home for this comedy juggernaut when we launch  in the spring of 2020. This show has been a hit virtually around the globe, it’s one of the biggest shows on broadcast television of the last decade, and the fact that we get to bring it to a streaming platform for the first time in the U.S. is a coup for our new offering.”
“I am forever grateful to have been part of something as extraordinary as The Big Bang Theory,” says co-creator/executive producer Chuck Lorre. “All of us, — Bill Prady, Steven Molaro, Steve Holland, and the amazing writing staff, cast and crew, recognize that 12 seasons of laughter is a gift to be cherished. And now we are extremely excited that TBBT will be joining the HBO Max lineup and be available to both existing and future fans of the show. Laughter has legs!”
“It’s not every day you get to extend the run of a cultural phenomenon that reaches nearly 35 million viewers on TBS alone every month,” said Kevin Reilly, Chief Content Officer, HBO Max and President, TBS, TNT and truTV.  “Through HBO Max and TBS, fans will have access to this beloved comedy for generations to come.”
The Big Bang Theory, created by Chuck Lorre and Bill Prady, premiered on CBS in September 2007. Two hundred and seventy-nine episodes later, the longest running multi-camera comedy series in U.S. TV history ended its 12-season run as the year’s most viewed entertainment series, the first show to be able to make that claim in 21 years. The series received 55 Emmy® nominations and 10 wins, and seven Golden Globe® nominations.
During the historic final season, the cast received one of the most prestigious honors in entertainment when they left their handprints in cement at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood. Additionally, costumes from The Big Bang Theory were donated to the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History. 
In addition to centering many of its episodes in the worlds of science and technology, The Big Bang Theory enjoyed a healthy appreciation and support from the scientific community at large, including having a bee species (Euglossa bazinga), a jellyfish species (Bazinga Rieki) and a monkey at the Columbus Zoo (Dr. Sheldon Cooper) named in the show’s honor.
In 2015, The Chuck Lorre Family Foundation announced The Big Bang Theory Scholarship to support undergraduate students at UCLA in need of financial aid who are pursuing their higher education in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).
Produced by Chuck Lorre Productions, Inc., in association with Warner Bros. Television, The Big Bang Theory was executive produced by Lorre, Prady, Steve Holland, Steven Molaro, Dave Goetsch, Eric Kaplan and Maria Ferrari. The series stars Johnny Galecki, Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco, Simon Helberg, Kunal Nayyar, Mayim Bialik and Melissa Rauch.

Martin Scorsese Presents Republic Rediscovered.

 HOLLYWOOD, Calif.  (Sept. 10, 2019) –Discover some of the rarely seen films from the storied Republic library, personally curated by Martin Scorsese and meticulously restored and remastered by Paramount.  Recently presented as part of a special screening series at New York’s Museum of Modern Art, the 24 films below are now available on the Apple TV app for fans everywhere to rent or buy.


“From the ’30s through the ’50s, the different studio logos at the head of every picture carried their own associations and expectations, and for me, the name Republic over the eagle on the mountain peak meant something special,” said Scorsese. “There are so many titles that have been overlooked or forgotten; waiting for decades to be seen again. I can promise you that you have some discoveries in store.”


While Republic Pictures was considered a “B” movie studio, it gave great directors, actors and other talent the freedom to make movies they wanted to make, as long as they came in on budget.  The films are available now because of Paramount’s dedication to film preservation. The result is a rare chance to see films that twist genres and expectations and offer one surprise after another.


“Thanks to the efforts of Martin Scorsese and The Film Foundation, audiences will see that Paramount’s work to restore these films has been done with careful attention to every detail,” said Paramount Chairman and CEO Jim Gianopulos. “We are thrilled that these movies can be experienced once again in the way their filmmakers intended.”


The 24 films now available on the Apple TV app are:
