Posted in Just something to say, Videos with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 13, 2017 by getbent57

Batman_Gotham_By_GaslightThe next DC Universe Animated movie is called Batman: Gotham By Gaslight.  This is based off the 1989 graphic novel Gotham by Gaslight.  Have never read this one but plan to before the movie is out.  What makes this one special it takes place what DC calls Elseworlds.  This lets story tellers and artist tell different stories that don’t fit into the main storylines.   The basic plot of this has Batman in a Victorian era Gotham.  Where is has to put is detective stills to stop Jack the Ripper.  Have to say it does look and sound pretty cool.   You can see the trailer > here or below.  There is all so sneak peek video as well.  Which you can see > here or below.  Not sure when this will be out.  But my guess is some time Spring 2018.

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.

Batman: Bad Blood Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 8, 2016 by getbent57

Batman_Bad_BloodThis movie, Batman: Bad Blood is another awesome one in DC Universe Animated line up.   There is lots to like about this new movie.  First is it takes place in the same world as Son of Batman and Batman vs. Robin.  The second thing is there a lots of new characters.  Which are new to the animated movies.  One of this new characters is Batwoman.  She steals the show.  She has some great and funny lines while still kicking ass.  It was nice to see some comedy worked in.  As all way they manage to out do themselves with the action.  The fights could have been in a Hollywood blockbuster.   The best thing about the movies is since this in the same word as two others it can keep the storyline moving.  If it were standalone story think it would not as good.  That being said you don’t really have to see the other two.  It would help you understand the dynamic better.

Has you may know I am a huge Batman fan as well as this DC animated movies.  So you know I am going to enjoy them not matter what.  Over the years the have been some really awesome ones and some that were just ok.  This one fits in to the awesome list.  The story line is good for the most part.  The action is at its best.  They don’t hold back characters get really hurt or die.  Must have for any fan.
