BatmanDarkKnightReturnsDeluxeEditionKnew it would a matter of time before the put Batman: The Dark Knight Returns: part one and two into one movie.  Well now they have.  It is being called DCU: Batman: The Dark Knight Returns (Deluxe Edition).  When I first seen this was thinking this is great for people that don’t all ready have part one and two.   Seamed like a money grab to there fans as well.   However there are some things that might make with worth buying all over again.  First off the two parts will flow together.  This is the biggest part there will be a 70 minute documentary about Frank Miller on the creation of the graphic novel which this movie is based on.  There will all so be cast and crew commentary.  They are saying was created for this release.  Of course all the extras from the part one and two.  If you buy the Blu-ray you will come with four collector cards with never before seen artwork.  That sounds pretty cool.  It set to come out October 8, 2013.  All this extra stuff is very enticing.  But pretty sure I will end up buying a copy.

Batman: The Dark Knight Returns: Part 2 Review

BatmanTheDarkKnightReturnsPart2.jpgI can now see why  they split The Dark Knight Returns into two parts.  January 29, 2013 Batman: The Dark Knight Returns: Part 2 was released.  Was waiting for my day off to watch this.  Sounding like a broken record here, but his is the best DC Universe Animated yet.  I like how they are keeping the stories darker and more aimed at for more of an adult audience.  Have never read the graphic novel this is based on so I had know idea how the story unfolds.  Very glad I didn’t know what happens next.  Because this is a very exciting story line.  Have never seen a version of Batman like this before.  It was very refreshing.  So much good stuff is crammed in this DVD.  Enjoyed ever second of it.  Now I am going to look into getting a copy of the graphic novel.

You guessed it.  This is a must buy.  If you have not seen part one.  Go get these two together.  You will not be disappointed.  Even for the casual fan of Batman who only knows the TV Batman cartoons will enjoy this one.

BatmanTheDarkKnightReturnsPart2January 29, 2013 Batman: The Dark Knight Returns: Part 2 will be out.  Part one came out back in September.  Which is pretty awesome by the way.   If you haven’t seen it, you need to.  So you know part two will be just as awesome.  Still thinking about getting the graphic novel it is based on.  It is a really good story.  Takes Batman to a whole new level.  Much darker story then most Batman stories.  The other day DC Universe Animated put out a “First Clip”.   You can see that here or below.  Have to say it is pretty sweet.

Superman/Doomsday

SupermanDoomsdayHave re-watched Superman/Doomsday today.  This is the first direct to DVD by DC Universe Animated original movies.  Saw this when it first came out back in 2007.   But never owned the DVD.  Until a few weeks ago when I seen it in a bin at Wal-mart for $5.   Have all the rest of the DC Universe movies.  All ways tried to get them the day the come out or a few days after because I am a fan of these movies.  There are 15 to date.  With the newest one coming out January 29, 2013, Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 2.

For being about six years out this movie holds up pretty good.  The story is very good.  It tells the death and return of Superman.  This was a very big thing when it happened in the comic books.  I remember seeing it on the news back in the yearly nineteen’s .  I am more of a Batman fan.  But this is a good watch.  Plus there is a nice documentary on the disc called Requiem and Rebirth: Superman Lives!.  It tells the story how the came up with the idea to kill Superman and how it effected the real world.  Very interesting watch.
