Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Batman: Hush continues DC’s impressive run of animated adaptations of their classic comic book back catalogue.  This time is the seminal Hush storyline which gives us a veritable rogues gallery of Batman villains – from The Riddler, Joker, Scarecrow, Bane and many  more…  and once again you are left wondering why DC live action just doesn’t follow this massively successful template rather than the dross it’s produced.  So no surprises for fans of the original story but for everyone else this is super solid.

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
