    It took me forever to get around to this one and boy do I regret it. This is a phenomenal film, tight, fast-paced, and thrilling. Not to mention some of the most amazing special effects put on screen, and done all the way back in 1933. It's incredible that this thing looks as good as it does, and every segment had me marveling at "how'd they do that" without a green screen and computers.

    DC Showcase: Adam Strange

    ★★★½

    Another in the DC Showcase animated shorts line, attached to Justice League Dark: Apokolips War. I confess to knowing next to nothing about Adam Strange, so that made this viewing both a thrilling little fifteen-minute ride... and a confusing one, as I would like to know more.

    Near as I can figure, he's a tragic soul, "Quantum Leaping" his way through the Galaxy helping folks in need while he waits for the right opportunity to get back to set things…
