Very enjoyable read! I hadn’t really thought about the shared setting, the city, before reading this. But as I think about, I do tend to associate each of these with New York. Would love to someday see any of these in the city.
Ocarina of Time was quite possibly the first video game I played, if not, then definitely one of the first few. For that reason alone it holds a special place in my heart.
Great article. Love the comparison to being a modern day vampire. Never thought about it like that. Makes sense, though.
It’s tough adapting a novel into a film, almost to the point where their success sends to be nothing but luck. I think the most successful adaptations tend to keep the essence of the characters, if not anything else.

I feel like I’m the only who hasn’t seen it, that being said I do plan to watch it when it’s on DVD. Disney typically makes great movies, at least the ones I see.
I remember watching this once as a kid when I was too sick to go to school. I don’t think I’ve seen it since. I’m not sure why it isn’t widely considered to be a masterpiece. Maybe a lot of people are like me and haven’t seen it in ages.
Yeah, there really haven’t been that many great superhero shows recently. I did enjoy Smallville, but comparing Smallville to Arrow is useless. They’re two different shows with different strengths. Arrow is definitely a win in my eyes.
