Next week, and just in time for Father's Day (Sunday, June 15th), Wal-Mart is making it much easier to afford a high-definition Blu-ray player!The original standard DVD format went on sale in the United States back in 1997, and consumers quickly shifted over to the new format from VHS. But in 1998, HDTVs went on sale, and every year since then the high definition sets have gained in popularity. But something was missing...hi-def on home video!While DVD was noticeably better than VHS, it was noticeably not-as-good as the hi-def broadcasts of TV shows and films that people could get from cable, satellite and over-the-air HD. Folks clamored for an HD home video format, and by February 2008 the Sony-developed Blu-ray Disc ("BD") format had just won a bitter hi-def format war. But at the time, prices of a BD player started at $400, and typically ran quite a bit higher.Beginning this coming Sunday, June 8th, Wal-Mart is kicking off their newly remodeled electronics departments in their st...

Justice League: The New Frontier courtesy DC Comics/Warner Bros.
The live-action Justice League of America movie is in limbo, but the popular comic-book super team gets a worthy screen adaptation in a new DVD-movie based on Darwyn Cooke's graphic novel. The New Frontier, which goes on sale Feb. 26, reimagines the origin of the JLA in the 1950s and early '60s, when fear of communism and alien invasion ran rampant. The team behind the latest DC Comics/Warner Bros. Animation straight-to-DVD movie worked hard to compress the six-issue comic series into a 75-minute feature. "The biggest challenge was deciding what would stay and what had to go," says director Dave Bullock. "There are a lot of great character moments in New Frontier and there were a lot of hard decisions to be made, just due to time factor." The finished product preserves the main unifying story: an alien menace that brings the world's greatest superheroes together for the first time. Still, it's the development of the characters Superman and Wonder Woman debating how to respond...

Phil Morris with Tom Welling, Smallville
He wasn't in last week's "Justice" episode, but tonight TV veteran Phil Morris (Mission: Impossible) drops in on Smallville as J'onn J'onzz (pronounced "John Jones"), a familiar face from the world of DC Comics. Like Kal-El, J'onn is from a different planet — Mars — hence his other handle, the Martian Manhunter. Given that J'onn is a shape-shifter, many actors could have been hired to play the part, but Smallville scored by casting Morris, who brings a mature and guiding presence (something that Clark has needed since losing his dad) as well as a solid knowledge of the comic-book world.
