Default Re: Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns Animated - Part 1

This is one of the best animated films around, loved both parts and considering how much of a mess they could have made with being such popular source material they did a great job. Peter Weller was a great choice as Batman/Bruce Wayne.

This is how you do animated comic book films.

I think Superman's inclusion in Part 2 is a large reason why I enjoy the film so much. Its different than the usual Superman but it still makes him come off as really cool.
QFT actually made me start to like the Superman character at last.

I wonder if they will try doing any other adaptations of comic books in this way, would love to see a Killing Joke one.

I enjoyed it but since it isn't one of my overall favs I held off buying until they brought out a version with both parts in. Now to see what the price will be.

I bought the separate movies on DVD, maybe I'll get both on Blu-ray if the price is right

A shame they aren't splicing the two movies together... but I'll buy it if they add some cool new special features.

Killing Joke is such a short movie they'd either have to add over 30 minutes of content to it, make it a motion comic or make it a short (like Shazam + Catwoman) to make it a direct adaptation.

Hopefully.


The sad thing is, this re-release looks better than TDK trilogy "ultimate editions." I'll definitely double-dip for this.

Yeah...I'll probably be doing a double dip on this. Dammit. I knew they'd eventually start selling the two in one set when I bought them, but I didn't think they'd combine them into one film. That alone will probably make it worth it to me.

I want it.

This coupled with a soundtrack release is a very exciting prospect. I'm actually surprised WB have gone to these lengths. Where the two individual blu-rays big sellers for them?
