Batman And Harley Quinn Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on September 9, 2017 by getbent57

Have watched the newest DC Universe Animated movie Batman and Harley Quinn.  This is much different then the last bunch they have put it.  It has a similar look to 90’s TV show, Batman: The Animated Series. There was a much more lighted hearted tone with a bit a serious stuff mixed in.  There were lots of jokes.  They even and Batman take part in some of them.  As for the humour it was all over the place.  It had your kid friendly potty jokes and then there were some very adult jokes.  It kind of worked.  As for the story it was a bit disjointed.  The basis of the story has Batman and Nightwing needing Harley Quinn help to stop Poison Ivy and Floronic Man.  There is a few times it left like they cut some stuff out.  So when the next scene starts it felt like something was missing.

Over all like this movie.  There was a lot more fun this one than past ones.  All the voice acting was great.  All so like they tipped their hat to the 1960’s Batman TV show is spots.  This is a standalone movie so you don’t have to seen anything else before.  But is does help if you seen the 90’s cartoon.

Just a reminder that the next movie in the DC Universe Animated line is Batman and Harley Quinn.   Will be out next week (August 29, 2017) on Blu-ray/DVD.  It has been out on digitally platforms for a little while now.  For myself I like to collect the disc versions of this movies.  Looking forward to watching this one very much.  It has the same art style as 90’s show, Batman: The Animated Series.  It even as the best Batman/Bruce Wayne, Kevin Conroy back as the voices.  If you missed the trailer or want to see it again.  You can do so > here.

Batman_And_Harley_QuinnThe next movie in the DC Universe Animated line is Batman and Harley Quinn.  The story has Batman and Nightwing teaming up with Harley Quinn to take down Poison Ivy and Floronic Man.  What makes this one standout is, it is drawn like the awesome 90’s show, Batman: The Animated Series.  It even has Kevin Conroy back as the voice of Batman/Bruce Wayne.  You can see the trailer > here or below.  It looks like a fun watch.  As you may know by know I collect these so will be having a copy of this as well.  It will be out on Blu-ray August 29, 2017.  But two weeks early you get it digitally on the 15th.

Teen Titans: The Judas Contract Blu-ray Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on April 21, 2017 by getbent57

As you may know if you have stopped by this blog every now again.  I am a big fan of the DC Universe Animated movies.  The newest one out is , Teen Titans: The Judas Contract.  This is part of the continuing storyline.  Which are under the banner DC Animated Movie Universe.  Really do like that they are doing this.  This way they can develop the characters over the long term.   Something they can’t do the the standalone movies.

This story is based of the the storyline from the 80’s Teen Titans comic book.  While weaving in elements from the the past few movies.  Never read those comics so was going in fresh.  Of all the movies in this world, this is the best one yet.  The other have been ok but nothing that really made them stand out.  Sure you can see some of the point twists coming a mile way.  Think mostly that is because there has been some many movies and TV shows that took them from comic books.

Liked this one a lot.  OF course it looks great and well acted.  The best part is see that all the characters have grown.  Not staying the same makes you more invested on the story.  Highly recommend giving this a watch.  You don’t have to see the other ones that came before.  It wouldn’t hurt but not that necessary.  All there is some good extras on the  Blu-ray disc.

Teen_Titans_The_Judas_ContractAll most forgot that the next DC Universe Animated movie, Teen Titans: The Judas Contract will be on Blu-ray/DVD soon.  This movie was first announced in February (2017).  In a bit less than a month it will out.  April  18, 2017 is the day.  It will be out sooner on digital, April 4.  Think this will the DC’s 28 movie.  However it will be the 7/8th set in the same shared universe.  Am really liking this idea that here is a continuing storyline.  All so think the standalone stuff it awesome as well.  If you didn’t see the trailer yet.  You can watch that > here.

Teen_Titans_The_Judas_ContractLast week the DC Universe Animated movie Justice League Dark was on on Blu-ray/DVD.  When ever a new one is released the put out a trailer for their next project.   The next movie is called Teen Titans: The Judas Contract.  This is based of a storyline from the 1980’s Teen Titans comic books.  Have to say it looks interesting.  I like the fact they they are keeping a lot of these movies in the same world as past movies.  You can see the trailer for yourself > here or below.

Justice_League_Dark.jpgPicked up a copy of Justice League Dark on Blu-ray today.  This is the newest DC Universe Animated movie.   Own all these movies.  I like how they switch things up every now again with something different.   The main focus of the storyline is on supernatural and magic.  They have touched one of of this stuff in the TV shows and small bits in other movies.  They have never really done a full movie like this one.  Plan to watch it on my day off.  Will be back with a review later.

Batman: The Killing Joke Review

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.
