Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Well Batman Ninja takes the rule book and throws it right out the door.  Take Batman and his considerable rogues gallery and plant them back into Feudal Japan, throw in a sprinkling of traditional Anime trappings, some Mechas and a whole bundle of crazy and you get what is one of the most fun Batman films ever made.  And that’s the thing – Batman films often lack the fun of Marvel movies but Batman Ninja delivers bright colours, impressive visuals and some insane ideas from start to end.  In short Batman Ninja is a must for fans.

Batman The Killing Joke – A Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Batman The Killing Joke doesn’t live up to the heights of previous DC animated films mostly due to the padding of having to convert a shortish graphic novel to a feature length film. That said when the somewhat misconceived Batwoman story is done and the Killing Joke clicks in, it delivers pretty much everything you’d want of an adaption of the seminal text with the additional benefit of some top notch voice casting once again.  This is dark stuff and hopefully sets the tone for future adaptations to be more mature.  Zack Snider take note.  THIS is how you do gritty.

Best Bit: The Joker
