We’re sad to learn of the death of Leonard Nimoy who passed away at his home in Los Angeles earlier this morning. Best known for his role as Mr. Spock in Star Trek, Nimoy’s career spanned more than six decades both in front of and behind the camera, in television and film, and left us more than a handful of memorable musical performances such as “The Ballad of Biblo Baggins.” It’s a sad day for Trekkies everywhere, so I’ll leave you with clip from the end of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan as an emotional James T. Kirk attempts to say farewell to his fallen friend. G’night Mr. Nimoy. You were, and always will be, our friend.

dc-lego-justice-league-vs-bizarro-league-blu-rayA LEGO Justice League movie? Okay, you’ve got my attention. The only real negative to LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes: Justice League vs. Bizarro League is its length. Clocking in around 45-minutes it’s a stretch to say you’re getting your moneys worth with this new LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes “movie.” That doesn’t mean there isn’t an awful lot of fun to be had for fans of LEGO and DC Comics.

Recent revelations and uncovered secrets prove to have consequences which will begin with Thea (Willa Holland) turning Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman) over to Nyssa (Katrina Law) and the League of Assassins and lead Oliver (Stephen Amell) and Diggle (David Ramsey) to Nanda Parbat and face-to-face with Ra’s al Ghul (Matt Nable) who, rather than torture the archer (as he’s done with Merlyn), makes Ollie an offer he may not be able to refuse.
