Justice League: What a Wonderful World

Posted in Music and Videos, Music Videos with tags , , , , on January 18, 2011 by Charlie Brooks

Unlike most music videos I do based on TV series, this video takes clips from only one episode of Justice League Unlimited: “For the Man Who Has Everything,” which is an adaptation of an Alan Moore comic. The song here is “What a Wonderful World” by Louis Armstrong, which adds a bit of painful irony to the situation, since the wonderful world the characters experience is really nothing but a dream.

The Animated Superhero

Justice League: New Frontier...great comic, good movie.Superhero movies are the big thing right now in Hollywood. Since X-Men came out in 2000 and made a boatload of cash, studios have been buying up comic books right and left. Some of these, such as Iron Man, Spider-Man, and the revamped Batman franchise, have been great. Many of them, such as Daredevil, Punisher: War Zone, and the third installments of both the X-Men and Spider-Man franchises, have been creative wastelands. No matter what, though, the films keep making money, so the trend marches on. Continue reading

Justice League: Kryptonite

This video combined Three Doors Down’s “Kryptonite” with Cartoon Network’s Justice League cartoon (first two seasons, before it became Justice League Unlimited). Unfortunately, because I didn’t have all the clips I needed, there is no actual kryptonite in the video. Ah well.

I also wound up putting the opening title card on a second time at the end instead of the usual ending title card, which I guess works out now that the Screamsheet is moving on over to WordPress and all.

You’ll have to download the video by clicking the image above, as this video again falls into YouTube’s frustratingly inconsistent policing policies. The song is available in many forms on YouTube, including in music videos, and the episodes featured here can be found in full over on YouTube. Someday, I’m sure somebody will explain to me the fine details of their policies. I just hope the explanation doesn’t involve blind lobotomized monkeys like I think it does.

Dr. Horrible + Justice League: Brand New Day

Posted in Music and Videos, Music Videos with tags , , , , , , , , on December 21, 2010 by Charlie Brooks

This video is a celebration of things that are awesome. The music is from Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog, and the clips are from Justice League Unlimited, showcasing the magnificent bastard that is Lex Luthor. The opening and ending clips both come from the episode “The Great Brain Robbery,” in which the Flash and Lex Luthor switch minds. Hilarity ensues.

Rest in Peace, Superfriends

I might seem mean-spirited with these rants against Superfriends, but I only complain because of all the hours I spent watching and enjoying that show as a kid (proof that television rots your brain). This time around, I’m graduating to the more “mature” version of the show, Challenge of the Superfriends. I’ve been raiding YouTube for clips, and sat down and revisited one of the episodes of that series called “Rest in Peace.”

After a jazzy opening that reminds me that both Apache Chief and Giganta need to start wearing underwear when they rampage through a city, we start with a shocking scene: one of the Superfriends has been killed. The narrative takes its sweet time telling us who died, but it’s pretty obvious that the only major Superfriend missing from the crowd is Batman. He’s even got a bat-shaped tombstone, which kind of kills the mood by making me laugh out loud. Holy bat-funeral! Continue reading
