    Justice League - The New Frontier

    This DVD is based on the Justice League of the 1950¿s. Here you can see the classic look of Wonder Women,Superman,Batman,The Flash and the origin of Hal Jordan as the Green Lantern and the Martin Manhunter. The villain of this movie is the center and although the movie is not like the Justice League television series, the movie is a great thow back to a classic way of story telling and animation. This movie is a must for any fan of the justice League but I do not recommend that children under the age of 12 watch the movie. The scenes might be a little graphic for young viewers.

    Origin of the Justice League of America

    This is based on a comic series of the same name, which is a telling of the origin of the hero team Justice League of America, with Superman, Wonderwoman, Batman, Flash, and many other classic heroes. The main focus is on Hal Jordan, the Green Lantern. Largely it looks at his life before he gets the ring, set around the time of JFK. The enemy is a take on the old 'Dinosaur Island' which appeared in comics back in the day. The film is a little choppy and frantically paced due to it's limited running time. But it's full of good drama and mystery. As the film starts Batman and the Flash are on the run from the government, caught in the hysteria of the cold war. Hal Jordan "Green Lantern" is a fighter pilot in Korea. Superman is working for the government despite his friendship with Batman. As the all-powerful threat bears down on the US coast, they are able to all work together in the spirit of cooperation. This gives birth to the JLA at the end, and ties into the beginning of the old JLA comics. Highly recommended. This movie has disturbing images and violence, be cautious about showing it to young kids!

    Comical Politics

    Pilot and future Green Lantern Hal Jordan refuses to kill the enemy in the Korean War because he doesn't believe in the cause "even though North Koreans started the war in an attack on the US' allied South Korea. Princess Dianna opines that America is no longer "in the right" after WW II. Sorely disappointed in this film. Blatantly liberal, exposing its bias early on dishing out the usual slander about Joe McCarthy. His actions have already been vindicated several times over, but like good communists, liberals just keep saying the lie over and over until innocent and unaware people don't know the difference between truth and falsehood. What's funny "and sad" about it, is that the climaxical point is one about putting differences aside to defend America's Liberty. Yet references are continually made that make the conservative right look dictatorial while the liberal left is made to look as great promoters of freedom. It seems today's comic writers have failed to observe history correctly: Hitler's rise came through his Socialist Party! This gives the film an unfortunate and smelly aroma of hypocrisy: A sad, vain attempt to make communism look good. Apparently, only the liberals in the current DC universe can be heroes. Against the big threat the of "The Center" "odd name when you think about political metaphors" Superman, usually seen by DC writers as aligned with the conservative right, is dispatched early, and has little impact in the battle even though he is the one that calls for an end to political bickering to stop, and unites the so-call Justice League heroes. Sigh. If you let your children watch this, watch with them to discuss the hidden views. Good way to build critical thinking skills. On a more technical note, the visuals are poorly drawn, although the attempted emulation of 50s era heroes and art is fairly consistent.
