DC Universe Titans Episode 7 “Asylum” Review

The Titans episode this week left me uncomfortable and I think that is what it set out to do. For six episodes, the series has introduced viewers to Dick, Rachael, Kory and Gar. These episodes attempt to make our heroes feel like real people. However, “Asylum” went and tore these characters apart piece by piece, and in turn made me feel really uncomfortable while doing so. This review is going to be different as I am not writing out of enjoyment, but out of sorrow.   [Warning: The following review…

DC Universe Titans Episode 6 “Jason Todd” Review

Dear Hero Club readers, I apologize for the delay in this review. The sixth episode of Titans, titled “Jason Todd” did not inspire me to write as much as the previous five episodes. I am not entirely sure yet, why this happened but maybe the reason will become more clear later in this review. Now, this episode of Titans broke ground by having the first live-action appearance of Jason Todd, the second Robin. So far, Titans has done a great job of introducing a multitude of live-action debuts in its…

DC Universe Titans Episode 2 “Hawk & Dove” Review

Titans started off with an introduction to the grittier and realistic life of Dick Grayson, Rachael Roth and Kory Anders.

So let us take a deep dive into Titans Episode 2, “Hawk and Dove;” much like last week, we will be looking at each character one by one due to the series…

Ben Watches: Steven Universe

So to start this one off, I am nowhere near caught up with Steven Universe. I’m still on season one which has been enjoyable so far. The last episode I remember watching was the Lapis Lazuli two parter and that was fantastic. One of the things I love most about this show is the color choices. I know during the Lapis two parter, I was impressed by the coloring used for the water along with the space scene towards the end of the second episode. I thought it was simply…

HGBC 1/144 Diver Ace Unit/ Gundam 00 Diver Ace Review

As Gundam Build Divers debuted on TV in Japan, Bandai Hobby released the High Grade Build Divers 000 Gundam 00 Diver model kit at a very reasonable 1000 yen. That kit however was lacking in the accessory and detail department. Now, while it is a great introduction to Gunpla, it was very limited in its display options. Then along came the Diver Ace Unit to save the day. Included in the set is not only the Ace Unit backpack and the Diver Swords, but parts to upgrade the overall look of the Gundam 00 Diver; the parts allow…
