Five GOOD Entries in the Transformers Franchise
As a diehard fan of the Transformers franchise, John Eckes feels the need to defend its honor in the wake of Michael Bay’s cinematic abominations. As he shows in this article, Transformers are much more than those critically-panned films make them out to be or even the toys that made Optimus Prime and company household names. Give this one a look to discover some of the best comics, TV shows, video games, and of course movies that feature the robots in disguise. And someone tell Michael Bay about these so he can see what Transformers can be in the right hands!
Digital Noise Episode 51 – Too Much of a Good Thing
On this week’s Digital Noise, Chris and Richard encounter the type of problem that is great to have: there are simply too many good titles to review. Our intrepid hosts even find themselves having difficulty selecting a single Pick of the Week! With selections such as Jodorowsky’s Dune, The Raid 2, The Unknown Known, Afflicted and The Legend of Korra: Book 2, it’s understandable that the choice is tough to make. Listen in as they have praise this edition’s home releases and be sure to pick up a few of them for your own collection.
