SupermanUnboundBoxArt.jpgAfter waiting a few days got to watch Superman: Unbound.  This is the newest DC Universe Animated movie.  Picked up the Blu-ray/DVD combo pack.  This is the first Blu-ray I have watched on my new TV.  Say this every time about they come out with a new movie but will say it again.  The animation is to notch.  It is super sharp and clean looking.  This is one of best looking to date.  While it was great to look at the story left a bit flat.  Think this is because over the years they have done so many Superman: Brainiac stories.  Brainiac was much different than other version from the TV shows.  That was nice.  Think if you are new to the DC movie world this is not the movie to start with.  Because if you are not familiar with the characters you might be a bit confused.  Over all this is another solid release in this line up.

Enjoyed watching this.  But was let down a bit at the same time.  They seem to be trending over the same storylines.  Would like to see something different.  Still have to watch the extras.  There seems to be some good stuff on there.  This movie is more of a strong rent then a buy if you are looking to see it.  This is one of the weakest in this line of movies.  Looks great, the voice acting is all so great.  Just the story was a bit of a let down.

SupermanUnboundBoxArtJust a reminder that the next DC Universe Animated movie, Superman: Unbound is out on DVD/Blu-ray tomorrow (May 7, 2013).  All ways looking forward to when the put a new one of these.  Plan to pick up my self a copy tomorrow. Just debating on the DVD or Blu-ray.  The DVD is cheaper but if I buy the Blu-ray combo pack it comes with a DVD copy as well.  Have bought three other DC Animated movies on Blu-ray but the rest I have the DVD.

Should talk about what the story is going to be about.  It is an adaption of the 2008 story arc called Superman: Brainiac.  Don’t know much about his story line. Didn’t read up on it because I want to see this movie with fresh eyes.  Just wonder how it will be different than the other Brainiac stories since they have done many over the years with movies and with the TV shows.  Will find out and you can read it my review some time this week.
