Score: 6/10

How the hell did Frank Miller get here? He is one of the most legendary writers in the comic book industry and yet he can’t seem to write decent dialogue. It sound super fake and antiquated, like someone is trying to imitate a 1930’s gangster. It’s tough to sit through. I got through the first two issues all right, but that last issue was painful.

Score: 7/10

Batman: Hush was surprisingly good considering how crappy the past few DC Comics animated movies have been in my opinion. Most amazingly is how the movie offers something new-ish for people already familiar with the comic book.

Score: 7/10

Justice League vs. The Fatal Five is an animated movie that takes place in the same universe as Batman: The Animated Series, Superman (the Bruce Timm cartoon), Justice League (the Bruce Timm cartoon), Batman Beyond and Justice League Unlimited. This movie is essentially an hour and a half long new episode of the Justice League Unlimited cartoon, which sound great to me. I loved those old cartoons and an opportunity to revisit that world again with all the old voice actors is fantastic to me.

Score: 7.3/10

Boy was I relieved after seeing this movie. I was worried that I was going to see another trash super hero movie from the DC Comics universe. Fortunately, that was not the case. This movie had heart, which is really the primary thing I need from movies nowadays.
