Okay, I lie. I didn’t actually watch all of these this past week, but I couldn’t think of a title.
1. Wonder Woman
The reason I wasn’t so into Wonder Woman as a kid was because of the incredibly cheesy Linda Carter TV series. I only started to like the character when I started watching Justice League and borrowing my cousin’s JLA graphic novels.
This re-hashed Wonder Woman origin movie is epic. Great dialogue and story, the animation and action scenes were fluid. AND it’s produced by Bruce Timm, who I love, love, love for his work on Batman: The Animated Series and Justice League.
It’s also got a pretty heavy voice cast with Keri Russell as Diana, Alfred Molina as Ares, Rosario Dawson as Artemis, and Marg Helgenberger as Hera.
And yes, the incredible, invisible flying jet’s in there too.
2. Superman/Batman: Public Enemies
I haven’t read the comic books yet so I can’t make a comparison, but I enjoyed it. Of course, that could just be the Batman fangirl in me talking.
Not too fond of the art but maybe that’s because I prefer Bruce Timm’s pin-up-art-deco style.
There’s a lot of Bats-Supes bromance in here. A lot. Like, bordering-on-lovers-bromance. But Power Girl’s in it, so rejoice! Her ample boobage makes up for the bromance, if you’re not into that sort of thing.
Watch out for the, “You killed my best friend” line. It killed me. Hahahaha.
3. Batman: Mystery of the Batwoman
Bruce Wayne + Ice-blue eyes = not working for me.
Alfred, as always, was awesome.
Wasn’t bad, nothing spectacular either.
The animation was a bit messy.
For the love of all that is holy, will someone explain to me how Batwoman’s mask works because I spent half the movie being bothered by it.
Batman: The Brave and the Bold — Mayhem of the Music Meister
The Brave and the Bold’s always full of lulz, but lulz set to music? YES PLZ!
Neil Patrick Harris stars as guest villain, the Music Meister, who has the power to control people by bursting into song.
I repeat: Neil Patrick Harris as singing and dancing villain. So much win in less than 30 minutes of cartoon.
