Hrm, I think Paul is on to something, the animation looks like…..maybe it got kicked in the grundle in a few scenes or something. Doesn’t look like that for the whole movie, of course, but man I hope that out of all the DC animated features, this would be the one story they’d want to throw all the money at, or at the VERY LEAST, make sure the animation stays consistent all the way through.

This teaser or whatever doesn’t excite me. I was actually disappointed, but I’m not concerned. The R-rating is cool, especially for a cartoon, though this R-rated phenomenon I don’t really care for because of Die Hard 4. I really liked that, and the unrated cut of it didn’t amount to anything different. I was disappointed about how I ended up feeling, but decided that… Read more »
