Life of Crime

Life of Crime, the new caper comedy from legendary author Elmore Leonard starring Jennifer Aniston, Tim Robbins, Will Forte and Isla Fisher is coming to theaters, on demand and iTunes August 29th!

To celebrate the release, Life of Crime is supplying us with a $15 Fandango gift card to give away to one lucky reader!

About Life Of Crime

When a pair of low-level criminals kidnap the wife of a corrupt real-estate developer, they get both more and less than they bargained for in Life of Crime, a dark caper comedy based on legendary author Elmore Leonard’s novel The Switch. Starring Jennifer Aniston, John Hawkes, yasiin bey, Mark Boone Junior, Isla Fisher, Will Forte and Tim Robbins, Life of Crime is packed with the outrageously eccentric characters, black comedy and unexpected twists that earned Leonard a reputation as one of America’s sharpest and funniest crime writers.

Mickey Dawson (Jennifer Aniston), the wife of crooked real-estate developer Frank Dawson (Tim Robbins), is kidnapped by two common criminals (yasiin bey and Jon Hawkes), who intend to hold her for a $1 million ransom and extort her husband with inside information about his illegal business dealings. But Frank, who is holed up in the Bahamas with his mistress, decides he’d rather not get his wife back, setting off a sequence of double-crosses and plot twists that could only come from the mind of master storyteller Elmore Leonard.

Scene and Reviewed: Transformers Cybertron: The Complete Series

Transformers Cybertron

Transformers Cybertron: The Complete Series! Relive the Adventures of This Classic Animated TV Series in One Complete Set! Own This Collectible 7-DVD Set on August 5 2014 from Shout! Factory.

I have to admit, I was eagerly awaiting this series release from Shout! Factory. After reviewing the Armada and Energon series, the completionist in me was actually excited to see the arrival of this Transformers collection. Here is the scoop on Cybertron:

“This summer, relive some of the most astonishing classic action battles of ROBOTS IN DISGUISE and complete your home entertainment collection of the rare UNICRON Trilogy. In 2005, TRANSFORMERS fans were introduced to the animated series TRANSFORMERS CYBERTRON, the third installment of the rare UNICRON Trilogy–consisting of ARMADA, ENERGON and CYBERTRON. UNICRON has been defeated, but his destruction has created a black hole, which is threatening the AUTOBOTS’ home world of CYBERTRON. It’s up to OPTIMUS PRIME, his team of AUTOBOTS and their new human friends–Coby, Lori and Bud–to secure the four mystical Cyber Planet Keys, in order to destroy the black hole. Unfortunately, MEGATRON and the DECEPTICONS are always lurking. And if the Cyber Planet Keys fall into their hands, it could mean the end of life as we know it. The race is on!”

As I said of the Energon series, “None of the Transformers series have ever been perfect. It’s all in what you choose to take away from the experience.” That same philosophy applies when watching the Cybertron series. The CGI was on par with, if not slightly better than, its predecessor. I wish that they had developed the animation a little more, rather than reusing some of the same footage over and over for many of the transformation and fight sequences. But that is easily forgivable. Remember, He-Man was practically the same shots in every episode. If they can get away with it, so can the Transformers. But I digress. The English dubbing was greatly improved over previous efforts. I guess after the harsh criticisms that were received for the shortcomings of Armada and Energon, a little extra care was taken this go round. The noticeable efforts paid off.

As for the plot….meh. I mean, it’s the Transformers. I wasn’t wholly enthralled by the story lines of the previous two series, so why should this one be any different? It takes a few episodes for the story to really pick up. Then mid-series, Cybertron becomes somewhat repetitive with the racing (fans of the show will know what I’m talking about). Eventually, they get back on board with the original plot and the pace of the series really gains momentum. It’s always fun to see fan favorites like Starscream, Galvatron and Wing Saber in action. And, who doesn’t love it when Optimus Prime yells “Roll Out” to the Autobots?

All in all, Transformers Cybertron was exactly what you’d expect from a Transformers series. The show improved with each installment of the trilogy. Cybertron was a fun way to close out the Unicron epoch. Shout! Factory did a wonderful job putting these series together in a DVD collection any fan will enjoy. The Unicron series is a great way to introduce younger children to the wonderment that is the Transformers. All three installments have been reasonably priced and are an affordable way to expand your Transformers collection. Reviewing all three series has indeed been entertaining. Honestly, I would rather watch the Transformers Cybertron series over any of the Michael Bay films.

“On August 5, 2014, Shout! Factory, in collaboration with Hasbro Studios, will release TRANSFORMERS CYBERTRON: THE COMPLETE SERIES, featuring all action-packed episodes collected in one deluxe 7-DVD box set. Whether reliving the childhood memory or discovering this series for the first time, this is an essential home collection for every fan, collectors and entire family to complete their TRANSFORMERS home entertainment library. This complete series 7-DVD set is priced to own at $44.99 SRP.”

JFK Library Displays Superman Original Art

Press Release:

The John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum unveiled a special new display of rare Superman artwork created by legendary comic book artist Al Plastino featuring President John F. Kennedy. The story, told in ten hand-drawn story boards, was written in collaboration with the Kennedy White House in an effort to promote the President’s initiative encouraging physical fitness. The never-before-displayed original artwork will be shown in the Library’s museum through June 2014 with potential to be extended.

-jfk-Superman-

In 1963, the Kennedy White House launched a highly innovative marketing effort in collaboration with DC Comics (then called National Periodical Publications), the publisher of Superman, to create a story that would promote the President’s Council on Physical Fitness. A hallmark of the Kennedy Administration, the Council established physical fitness curriculum for the country and initiated a national publicity campaign on the topic. In “Superman’s Mission for President Kennedy” JFK calls upon Superman to help inspire the nation to exercise, eat better, and get stronger.

“The alliance between the Kennedy White House and the Superman comic strip designed to promote President Kennedy’s physical fitness initiative demonstrates how innovative the administration was in communicating and advancing key initiatives,” said Tom Putnam, Director of the Presidential Library. “Thanks to the Superman artist, Al Plastino, and the generous donation of DC Comics, we are pleased that this artwork will be available for the public to view for the very first time.”

The Superman piece was in production when President Kennedy was assassinated in November 1963, and the project was set aside. Eight months later, with the encouragement of President Lyndon Johnson, the story was published as a special tribute to President Kennedy. The final page of the published version states that the story’s original artwork would be donated to the Kennedy Library, which was then in the planning stages.

Al Plastino, who drew Superman for 20 years, took special pride in his drawings for this story. In late 2013, nearly a half a century later, when the artist learned that his original artwork was slated for auction, his family contacted the Kennedy Library to see if it had any record of the material ever being part of its holdings. A thorough search showed no evidence that the artwork had ever been offered to the Library or was ever a part of its collections.

In December 2013, just a month after Mr. Plastino passed away, DC Comics acquired the original drawings and offered them to the Kennedy Library, where they have become part of the permanent collection.

Upon securing the artwork, DC Comics issued a statement saying, “As a tribute to honor him and preserve his artistic legacy, DC Entertainment is pleased to confirm that we have acquired the art and will be donating it to the JFK Library, fulfilling Plastino’s longtime hope for the story, which he often pointed to as one of his most important artistic contributions.”
