Batman The Killing Joke Animated Movie Review

Batman The Killing Joke. One of the most famous or infamous (based on how you feel about the whole thing) Batman comics of all time has been animated into its own movie. The comic which came out back in 1988 was a one shot comic attempting to delve into the insanity and background of the perhaps most famous comic book villain of all time in The Joker.

Justice League vs Teen Titans: Another Mediocre DC Animated Feature.

 

Justice League vs Teen Titans. The latest DC animated movie continues a long string of mediocre DC animated features since DC opted to include the DC animated universe in the whole new 52 reboot and man has the overall quality gone down as a result. I was born in 1992 so I ended up growing up with the DC animated universe being formed from Batman the Animated Series, Superman the Animated Series and of course the Justice League. In addition to that, we had shows like the Teen Titans, Static Shock and oh yeah Batman Beyond.  Man, what a time to be alive. In addition to those shows, we also had a decent string of animated movies that accompanied them such as Superman/Batman Public Enemies, Justice League Crisis on Two Earth, Batman: Under the Red Hood, All Star Superman, Justice League Doom and Batman the Dark Knight Returns.  I honestly believe those shows and most of the movies captured the essence of the characters they featured. Superman the big blue boy scout, Batman the brooding loner, Wonder Woman, the headstrong and beautiful warrior and so on and so forth. So you can kinda see why I think the current line of DC animated movies are kinda…okay. They use the New 52 versions of the DC characters rather than the ones that have been around for quite a bit now so they don’t quite have the same feel. So now with some backstory on how I feel about the animated universe in general, let’s move on to the review. I will attempt to make this review spoiler free so let’s do this.
