I don't know who you are, buddy, but plugging your personal enterprises won't last long with an administrator as just, as moral, as fair as we have here. All agree he is the pinnacle of human moral values.

Batman: Gotham Knight -
Did NOT like. At all.
I understand the stylized animation and the anime fad, but for chrissakes, keep it consistent. I also understand that it's multiple stories, but they didn't feel in line for me.

I liked it, but of course I was more of a manga/anime person before I started reading comics.

Just finished watching Gotham Knight. The only one I didn't like was "Cross Fire". My favorites were "Have I Got A Story For You" (that one shows the "robot" Batman) "Field Test", and "Working Through Pain". Weirdest animation goes to "In Darkness Dwells".

I noticed Scott Menville (Teen Titans Robin) was in this. The credits revealed George Newborn (JLU Superman) and Will Feirdle (Terry McGinnis) also provided voices.

Which version did you guys get? I bought the two-disc at Best Buy which came in a steelcase with a character book and a $3.00 movie concession ticket.

I swear that when these things were announced we were getting Superman: Doomsday and Batman: Knightfall because they were being based on comics, and these were logical choices. But then I read that Knightfall had been cancelled in favour of Gotham Knight which was not only a terrible move, but a terrible end result.

I rented Gotham Knight in HD off XBox Live and damn I'm glad I only rented it, it sucked balls plain and simple. Now where's Knightfall? That one at least has a chance of being somewhere between fairly good and awesome!

Yeah, and the next one is some made-for-DVD Wonder Woman thing. Like the Batman one, it's not based on a comic.
I was expecting Knightfall, Judas Contract, Kingdom Come, etc. classic storylines that can help people get into comics. angry

I must say that, while I agree that stories such as Knightfall or Long Halloween would kick way more ass, Gotham Knight far from sucked. It did a great job of portraying the way a city would imagine this 'bat-man' they hear rumors of while also fleshing out Batman's character a little more for people who are trying to find out more about Batman after having watched Begins and heading into Dark Knight. In that way, it actually did more to bring people to comics than merely copying a comic story and slightly altering it for a movie that people might be turned off by since it has nothing to do with the series they are currently interested in.

If the sucked where would that put 'The Batman?' This stayed as true to the character with the limitations imposed by Begins as possible and greatly reinforced my belief that Dark Knight might get it right (which it did).

I was actually afraid because I own The Animatrix and know what it's like when a project just like this goes completely wrong.

Considering the concept that was being attempted, I gotta say Gotham Knight gets three and a half to four out of five stars.

But they must definitely make movies based on comics more than they have.

Superman: Doomsday was average. The animation was ok, but there was too much action. I never really watch/read Superman for the action and unfortuntely the character stuff wasn't special.

Justice League: TNF was brilliant cheesy I can't say enough good things. A superb epic, and my second favourite DC Animated film.

Batman Gotham Knight. It did it's job. Although I felt it was more Burton than Nolan (Unless I'm going crazy they even used the Burton Batmobile).

Looking forward to Wonder Woman.

I watched Green Lantern the other day. It was damn good. Not really much of an origin though. Within 5 mins Jordan is a GL and using his power ring like he's been a GL for years. Still, good stuff cheesy

Good, considering the film is probably going to be one of those alter ego doesn't don the costume until an hour into the movie deals.

EDIT:

Public Enemies is the next one, so thankfully they're moving back to comic based videos. cheesy

I heard Public Enemies has the TAS voices in them. If this is the case, I must own.

Just saw Public Enemies and thought it was merely okay. President Luthor is a hoot, especially at the end of the movie.

I get the feeling a lot of people are going to hate this movie. They show a lot of characters who don't exactly get a lot of screentime. Plus the movie isn't long (67 minutes) even though we get a lot of interaction with Conroy's Batman and Daly's Superman.

And the next DC movie is ....

Justice League - Crisis on Two Earths.

If you want to see a preview of it, buy the 2- disc edition of Public Enemies. But you should buy it anyway to watch the dinner conversation with Kevin Conroy. Great stuff.

Here we find a nice interview with Kevin Conroy. He talks about Public Enemies and how the movie definitely showcased Clancy Brown.
