DV-Debrief:

Marvel Knights - Black Panther

Marvel Knights: Black Panther DVD

The DVD that we review this week was originally a TV series on BET. Marvel Knight: Black Panther is based on the Black Panther comic. We discuss what we thought of the 6 series episode as well as if you should rent this or not. You will find some great voice over work by Djimon Hounsou, Alfre Woodard and Jill Scott. Plus if are not familiar with the Black Panther comic you will learn something new as Mike lays down some science.

Feature Flick:

Priest

Sony Pictures Entertainment - Priest

Our feature flick this week was adapted from a manga. Priest is a post-apocalyptic sci-fi that is set in an alternate world.  This world is ravaged by years and years (from the beginning of time) of war between man and vampires. A legendary warrior Priest from the last of the Vampire wars is now living among the human inhabitants in cities ruled by the Church. When his niece is taken  by a  pack of vampires, he breaks his vows and begins a quest to find her before they turn her into one of them. Paul Bettany, Karl Urban, Cam Gigandet and Maggie Q star in this movie. Listen to find out what the EftRoU crew think of this movie. See if we think it is worth seeing in the theaters or waiting for DVD.
