COMIC BOOK REVIEW: Batman: Arkham Unhinged Volume 1

There’s been video games based on comic books, and comic books based on games. But  Batman: Arkham Unhinged: Volume 1 from DC Comics takes the unique path of being a comic that’s based on a game that’s based on a comic. And while its tales of the Dark Knight aren’t as good as the one told in the game, or in the regular comics, the book does serve as a nice compliment to Batman: Arkham City.

John Coltrane: “Sun Ship: The Complete Session” Review

 

In 1971, four years after jazz saxophonist John Coltrane passed away, his wife Alice assembled some songs he’d recorded in 1965 for the posthumous album Sun Ship.

But rather than just released them as they had originally been recorded, Alice Coltrane had a couple of the tracks edited, and even combined two different versions of a song into a single tune.

Now, more than thirty years later, and six years after Alice’s passing, the uncut versions of those original sessions are finally being released as Sun Ship The Complete Session (CD, vinyl), a double disc set that includes every note Coltrane and his band recorded that day.

The Smashing Pumpkins’ “The Aeroplane Flies High: Deluxe Edition” Review

 

In the ’90s, few rock bands were as great as The Smashing Pumpkins. But then, few bands were as bloated and inconsistent as The Smashing Pumpkins as well. Which becomes readily apparently when you listen to The Aeroplane Flies High: Deluxe Edition, a new six-CD/1-DVD boxed set version of their 1996 singles collection.

MOVIE REVIEW: Elysium

In an age when so many sci-fi movies are really just big dumb action flicks with aliens or superheroes, it’s nice when someone tries to do something a little deeper. Unfortunately for director Neill Blomkamp, one bad idea undermines all of the good ones in his new movie, Elysium.
