LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes: Justice League: Cosmic Clash isn’t as good as its predecessors, and obviously a far cry from the LEGO feature films, but it’s a fun movie especially for younger viewers and at only 78-minutes (w/ credits), it at least flies by.

LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes: Justice League vs. Bizarro League isn’t great and is even a notch below LEGO Batman: The Movie but is still a fun little adventure with impressive animation and it’s something comic book fans and young kids will enjoy. The Blu-ray released by Warner has a good video transfer and an OK lossless audio track.

Justice League: Throne of Atlantis is not DCUA’s best output to date but it’s a perfectly entertaining film with a few flaws, primarily the limited running time. But the voice casting is mostly good, even Jason O’Mara, and on the whole I enjoyed it and some of the darker humor and taking the PG-13 rating to the limits in terms of animated affair.

“Green Lantern”: The Complete Series was a blast to watch and I actually didn’t mind the changes to the character, based on what I read, or the animation style but it’s not for everyone. The stories are a lot of fun and I couldn’t wait for the next episode; it’s only a shame it got cancelled after only one season. The Blu-ray released through Warner Archive offers up solid video and audio transfers but it is unfortunate no bonus material was included.

Justice League: War might not be the best of the DC Universal Animated Movie line and a step down from Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox and The Dark Knight Returns, but it is entertaining enough though the voice casting this go around isn’t the best, though we might be stuck with them given War is to be the first of connecting DCUA movies.

Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox is another solid entry into the DC Universe Animated line. The movie have had quality voice talent to go along with a well paced and finely tuned adaptation work providing for provocative storytelling, unflinching violence that even Tim Burton would avoid and an all around entertaining experience that I only wish the future DC live action movies could live up to.

The “Robot Chicken: DC Comics Special” is just as funny as the show itself and for fan of DC Comics, it’s a hoot to watch. While not all the jokes land, the majority do and alongside some decent talent lending their voices, even if a few are unrecognizable (like Alfred Molina). The Blu-ray released by Warner Home Video/Adult Swim offers good audio/video transfers and a good selection of special features.

Justice League: Doom has some of the same flaws of other DCU Animated releases, one being a short running time, that it limits any kind of character development or arc. Even so, the action and adventure elements are both fantastic and compared with the other Justice League movies, this is probably the best.

Green Lantern had loads of potential but thanks primarily to the script, all of that was squandered. While the casting itself was actually pretty good, including Blake Lively as Carol Ferris, and even a few scenes were decent, the film’s structure was out of sorts with a weak villain…

Green Lantern: Emerald Knights is a good addition to the DC Universe line and while it isn’t anything special, I did like how they laid the story out in a different way (compared with what they did with Batman: Gotham Knight) and the voice talent was also good with fans getting to at least hear what Nathan Fillion would sound like in the lead role.

I actually enjoyed “Batman: The Brave and the Bold” far more than I thought I would. It is, however, unfortunate that Warner is playing the game of splitting seasons up rather than just releasing the entire season at once. That said, if you can nab this at a good price (< $10 I’d say), then it is certainly worth it.

I think what Bruce Timm did with not only “Justice League” but the others as well, was give an animated series that adults can appreciate and one’s that weren’t targeted at kids where the stories can be too simple and the jokes too lame. I still like “Batman” more since I have been a fan since I was 8 but “Justice League” is probably on another level both in terms of animation style and storylines. Read More…
