Justice League: Gods & Monsters (Review)

Justice League: Gods & Monsters is the best of the DC original animated movies in a long while. That’s because it’s fresh. It’s based on an original story by Bruce Timm and Alan Burnett, two creators who know what they’re doing, and the result is that you don’t know every plot beat before it happens.

Justice League: Gods & Monsters

Justice League: Gods & Monsters, based on the sneak peek, sounds like a refreshing take on the DCU original animated movies in that it’s a new concept by Bruce Timm. Unfortunately, it’s also promised to be incredibly violent, and it has a vampire Batman, so it could be a mixed bag. Still, new (instead of adapting an existing comic) will be appreciated. Here’s the trailer for the movie, coming out July 28: It’s described as follows: Witness a divergent reality […]

Batman vs. Robin

Batman vs. Robin is a sequel of sorts to Son of Batman, in that Damian is struggling with what it means to be Batman’s son.

Justice League: Throne of Atlantis

The latest original animated DC Universe direct-to-video movie is much like the others: mediocre animation, lots of fighting, and little to interest anyone looking for more than yet another superhero battle.

Justice League: Throne of Atlantis tells the origin of Aquaman (voiced by Matt Lanter). Before he realizes […]

Justice League: Throne of Atlantis Clips Show It’s Not All Punching

Two clips have been released from the upcoming Justice League: Throne of Atlantis original animated movie, due out January 27. The first one is the expected action scene, with Cyborg (Shemar Moore) interrogating a computer underwater. Since this movie is all about Aquaman (Matt Lanter, 90210), I expect lots of water scenes. But the second one is of more interest to me, since it’s focused more on the characters, with Green Lantern (Nathan Fillion) trying to pick up a receptionist […]
