    Justice League v. The Fatal Five is out on Digital, and I availed myself.

    Smart move.

    Scripted, directed, animated, and voiced just like you were watching an extended episode of JLU. Characterizations all work, the dialogue beats work, and so forth. It's action heavy, you might could quibble just a bit with the lack of "origin story" exposition for Jessica Cruz's new GL - particularly since the run time was a little shorter than it could have been - but the counter-argument is that might have bogged it down some.
    For me, they could have taken five more minutes or so to set up the Legion end of the story - the circumstances around how Star Boy ended up in the past, and the medication to keep him stable (I do not remember any such trait for this character in any continuity of the Legion in the comics but it serves the story and is nice character depth) felt awfully rushed to me. Still that's little more than a nitpick.

    The addition of Cruz and Miss Martian to the featured roster members was nice. Jessica seems interesting and MM is a charcter that keeps getting better in every appearance.

    Kevin Conroy could read the phone book and I’d pay to watch it, he’s my Batman.

    Oh, shit, I forgot to mention, I saw Batman vs TMNT.
    It's really good.
    If you're a fan of both things, you will be happy.
    They don't just meet each other, there's tons of shout-outs and easter eggs for the history of both properties.
    It's everything you'd want.
    Now that this has opened the door, DC should do "Justice League vs Power Rangers", and Nickelodeon should do "TMNT vs Ghostbusters".
    Yes, those comics exist, and they're just sitting there waiting to be adapted.
    :yes:

    I'm not even a big TMNT fan but I enjoyed it a lot - hit all the right notes and the scene where Mikey first spots the Batmobile is worth the price by itself

    I just finished it and loved it. I'd love to see a live action adaptation of this. I liked the use of the JL, though I would have proffered a little more, but it was better than the JL movie, IMO. Nice use of Martian Manhunter. They've used him very well in the past, I don't get the hate. Anyway, I really liked this one.

    Side note: Gve Cavil his money and let's go forward with more Justice League, don't let Marvel have all of the fun.

    Oh, that reminds me, I finally saw "Teen Titans Go To The Movies", and it's cute, but "Lego Batman Movie", is way better.

    Harley Quinn animated series.
    Hmm, everything on DC streaming has obligatory cussing.

    Teen Titans wins, if only because of the scene before the credits.

    Love the Harley trailer.

    On another note, Saw Batman: Hush and I have questions
    Enjoyable enough but this is one of those (many) stories that would be so much better played out over a season instead of cramed into 90 minutes

    Just saw Batman:Hush.
    Loved it.
    I'd put it up there with the greats like Mask Of The Phantasm, Return Of The Joker, Under The Red Hood, and Superman/Batman: Public Enemies.

    Yeah, not sure how I feel about the villain/twist change, but making it more about the Bruce/Selena relationship more than made up for it.

    So I just watched Red Son. I rember watching the motion comic years ago and it looks like they changed a few things, especially the ending.
