How surprising.  :(  I just got the Brave and Bold dvds.  I think I'm going to watch some of them tonight to cheer myself up.

I just finish watching Justice League vs Teen Titans and it wasn't all that.  Since when did Starfire become Sailor Moon???  The only good/ funny part was the quick talk between Supes & Flash

This just make me wish they bring back Young Justice

Just got my Ticket for the July 25th theatrical showing of "The Killing Joke". I have to admit, I'm quite excited about this.

And that song killed the mood a bit.Voice acting was great as expected.Animation was passable,lets say.
First half an hour is an overly long intro concerning Batgirl chasing some mobster.Which should give some depth to Barbara.but actually makes her seem a bit unbalanced.Rest of the movie was surprisingly faithful to the source material and I cant really complain about anything there.Funny thing is that credits read "based on a graphic novel illustrated by Brian Bolland" with no mention of who wrote the GN in question.

I'm pretty sure  Alan Moore told DC to take his name of all the adaptations of everything he wrote after the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen movie.  He's not credited on the movie versions of V for Vendetta or Watchmen either.

A reminder that James Robinson was the writer of LoEG movie,so we cant really Moore for wanting to distance from that.
Can really say that I paid attention to credits in Watchmen.I shoud recheck that.

To return to Killing Joke,problem is that is basicly two movies in one.A good adaptation of the actual story,and a prequel thats on pair with "Damien trilogy" of New52 animated movies.
I hope they Rebirth the movies soon.

Pretty much. The Killing Joke portion of the movie is the perfect adaptation of the source material. The "controversial" part of the prequel is not as bad as some people online made it out to be, but it was weird nevertheless and was an uneccesary addition to the plot IMO.

A smirking gargoyle didnt really help that moment.
Irony being,thats the scene that got the movie R-rating.And its not even in the comic.
In a perfect world those 30 minutes would have been spent on Joker,since Mark Hammil was one of the main draws for the movie.And we would get a separate Batgirl movie that does more justice to the character.But...

So I watched it. It was alright, I enjoyed it. The Batgirl stuff didn't really bother me. I appreciated that they tried to make it more her story, even if for the first 30 minutes I kinda forgot what movie I was watching. And yes, I laughed when it showed the gargoyle.
I complained earlier about the art style when the trailer came out but when I watched the movie I was used to it so it didn't bother me.
The voice cast was quite good, but that's what I was expecting. I especially liked hearing Hamill do the flashbacks. I'm glad Gordon didn't sound overly gruff like he does in the Arkham games. He sounded more like he did in Batman TAS. Bullock's voice actor was also decent, as was Alfred.
I especially liked the bit at the end:

I'm genuinely curious what Batman animated movie we'll see next, not counting the Harley Quinn one.

I always enjoyed that bit.  :)

Yeah, I'm not really interested in any of the stuff they're doing at the moment.  I hope they'll put out some stuff that is more FUN soon.  I'd love to see an Aquaman movie that was actually, you know, good.
God Bless

Next up are 2 Batman movies and Justice League Dark.But dont worry,Batman will be showing up there.I mean,we all like Batman,but give it a little rest.
Well,there was Throne of Atlantis.Which I found somewhat mediocre.
BTW,oddly enough,the competition pretty much gave up on animated movies.  :rolleyes:

At least it wasnt about Batman.
But its a the N52 animated movie,so there were some familiar problems.

Hold on, two Batman movies? I've read it's Justice League Dark, "Batman and Harley Quinn" (which I could have sworn used to be called "Joker and Harley Quinn") and Teen Titans: The Judas Contract. What's the other Batman movie? Lego Batman?

Well, I wasn't expecting that.  :blink: That's actually kinda awesome.

Doing a little google-fu revealed that movie's existence was announced a year ago. Guess I must have missed it, or otherwise forgotten it.

Hmm, I didn't even know they were making that.  It does indeed look interesting, but I have to say: what the heck does Batman bring to the table in this magical grudge match between mystic powered beings?  Ha, I'm guessing they just stuck him in because, heaven forbid you make a DC movie without Batman, but it seems a really odd choice. 

Yet, a movie about Etrigan, Zatanna, and other DC mystics?  Color me interested.

Man, that is absolutely hilarious!  Also, I don't really care for the Killing Joke in the first place, so I wasn't very interested in this, but now?  Wow, yeah, I'll skip it.  I HATE the whole Batman/Batgirl relationship thing.  That's one of the only places where Bruce Timm is just completely and totally off, and his defense of that move in the way less awesome Animated Series return is just indicative of a bad storyteller, which we know he isn't.  People say, 'that's terrible, that's wrong!' and he says, 'yeah, that's why we did it!'  Transgression for the sake of transgression is pointless and stupid.

Good news is,Batgirl part can be skipped due to wonders of scene selection.So home edition has that advantage.
I think this was more Azzarelos fault then Timms.
