As a lifelong Batfan, I had to watch the new Batman movie, Batman: Under the Red Hood, via On Demand as soon as it was released. It’s animated, produced by pretty much the same team that brought the original Batman Animated Series to TV in 1991 . . . and it’s gorgeous.
It is a great showcase for new writers, as it can be used in comparison with the comic book storylines that this film was based on to show how to make a long and involved story work far, far better than the originals. You can read all about it here in this i09 review — which I agree with 100%.
May the Bat signal shine forever!
