Batman_Hush_BlurayThe next DC Universe Animated Original movie is Batman: Hush which is part of the DC Animated Movie series (This movies are in the same universe).  The movie shares the same name at the graphic novel it’s based off of.  I know I have read the novel ( think I might own a copy).  It is a must read.  They have used some of the plot points in past movies as well in the Arkham video games.  Very much looking forward to seeing how the turn it in a movie.  From the trailer > here or below.  It looks like there have changed a few things.  Most movies do that any way.  It is set to be out on digital platforms July, 20, 2019 then on disc August 13, 2019.  Will be getting a copy for sure.

Batman: The Killing Joke Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on August 12, 2016 by getbent57

Batman_The_Killing_Joke.jpgJust finished watching Batman: The Killing Joke.  This is the newest out DC Universe Animated movie.  Which is based off the very famous 1988 graphic novel of the same name.  Have read that story years ago.  Forgot most of it so it was nice to relive in animation form.  The movie starts off differently than the novel.  Its starts with more backstory with Batgirl and her relationship with Batman.  That part of the story was very nice addition.  After that’s over, the story picks up for the graphic novel starts.  From there is it pretty much exactly as the novel.

As all ways the animation is top notch.  The voice acting was even better.  Because it has the two best actors very to play Batman and The Joker, Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill.  The big take ways from this movie is the backstory of The Joker and the ending.  The way it ends is very different then you would think.  Had to go back and look at the novel to see if it ends the same way, it does.  Over all this is a great movie.  But not one of their best.  Still worth watching.

Justice League vs. Teen Titans Review

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 17, 2016 by getbent57

Justice_League_vs_Teen_Titans.jpgPicked up a copy of Justice League vs. Teen Titans days ago.  Just got around to watching it.  This is the newest DC Universe Animated movie.   This would be the 25 one they have put out.  Am a big fan of these and own them all.  Over all they all ways pretty great.  Some of them standout more than others.  While this one may not be a big standout.  There are lots of things they did different this time around.  Which were some nice surprises.  Not going to talk about them because don’t want to give any thing way.

The story was pretty good.  Was nice to see the Teen Titans is this animated universe.  There had and have shows with them.  Which are more light hearted.  Sure there is still some good comedy in there.  But it was well used and just the right amount.  The best thing about it is.  There have been a few movies before this one set in the same universe so the characters get to grow and change.  In the past the movie all have been stand alone.  They still make those as well.  I think its great that they are doing both.  This is well worth your time.
