Are you sure you're not describing Marvel's animated movies?

Honestly, they're all pretty awful as well. At least Hulk vs. Wolverine was fun (mostly due to Deadpool). I hear Planet Hulk is kind of cool, so maybe things are picking up.

Huh? Did you read the source material? Because there is no way you could say that if you had. Even some DC creators have said as much.

I believe they call it a "opinion".

Re: JUSTICE LEAGUE: CRISIS ON TWO EARTHS - Spring 2010

Well I have liked all the DC Animated Movies so far(Tho I haven't yet watched Batman Gotham Knight due to my dislike for that kind of Animation,but I do own it) and can't wait for this one. I love Comic Book Movies and TV Shows however don't read alot of comics so I though Justice League New Frontier was fine. However having alot of knowledge about the Death of Superman comics,while I did like Supermanoomsday it was a huge letdown after reading the comic,some books on the history of Superman,and listening to the Audio Radio Program of it it,and is my least favorite. I will someday watch Batman Gotham Knight as it takes place between Batman Begins & The Dark Knight and has Kevin Conroy as voice,I just don't like Anime-style animation.

Re: JUSTICE LEAGUE: CRISIS ON TWO EARTHS - Spring 2010

I've read New Frontier and loved it. I've watched the New Frontier movie and loved it as well. I guess it's easier for me to separate the two mediums.

Doesn't get any better with Crisis. Bad dialogue and a horrible cast choice (William Baldwin as Batman???) don't help matters much here. I think Wonder Woman and GL are the best so far, with New Frontier (it was dull, but not offensive) and Gotham Knight trailing behind. For me, PE and Superman/Doomsday are at the bottom, with CO2E now joining them.

I don't know about that. The Spectre short at the least sounds really cool and Adam Tyner wrote a good review of the Blu-Ray his tastes are very close to my own. I've heard enough good things about it I'm still going to blind-buy the Blu-Ray.

Re: JUSTICE LEAGUE: CRISIS ON TWO EARTHS - Spring 2010

Man this was all kinds of awesome. I thought I would hate this because the guy that recommended it to me also like public enemies a lot which I didn't care for. He also didn't like Hulk Vs which I loved. Also Owlman just sounds lame to me so me expectations were low.

Easily one of the best heroes movies to come out. Owlman and Batman came off as badass jerks just the way I like em. There was one point I was talking to the screen saying batman would never do that but something else happen right afterward that made say batman would do exactly that.

The cameos were done better but I wished some of the background characters had some lines. Black Lightning been in what 3 of these movies now and never says anything. The evil version had a evil afro. Come on I want to here what that dude has to say. On a side note Black Lightning on Harvey Birdman was funny.

Must see if you ask me. Hey is the best buy figure pack only online or in stores also?

Re: JUSTICE LEAGUE: CRISIS ON TWO EARTHS - Spring 2010

Thought it was okay for the most part. Would have enjoyed seeing more of the alternate Earths. Superman's head was drawn oddly. I don't understand why they have to change the voices all the time. The kiss all kind of ass with Kevin Conroy telling him how he is the best Batman voice actor ever in the various extras on these things. Yet they bring him back for one and drop him for the next. Can't we have consistency with the voice acting?

And yeah Best Buy has a figure pack for DVD and Blu-ray in the store. 19.99 your choice of formats.

Re: JUSTICE LEAGUE: CRISIS ON TWO EARTHS - Spring 2010

I dug it except for the for a few things here and there. The choice of voice casting for Superman (Mark Harmon, I believe) was all wrong. Same for the way Ultraman was portrayed. Other than that, it was very enjoyable.

The Specter short was awesome! And the First Look: Batman Under The Red Hood has me very much looking forward to that release.

Re: JUSTICE LEAGUE: CRISIS ON TWO EARTHS - Spring 2010

It was decent. Better than Public Enemies thats for sure. Not quite as good as First Flight or Wonder Woman though.

Re: JUSTICE LEAGUE: CRISIS ON TWO EARTHS - Spring 2010

I really disliked this, it was poorly done. The character designs were flat and boring, the vocal performances were miscast, it was just overall not great. Weirdly by putting the Justice League episodes that cover the same general plot on the discs it just points out how much better the Justice League series was than this movie. The spectre short was alright, the "grindhouse" effects were a bit over the top and I wasn't big on the anime style to the drawings, but it was better than the main feature.

Thus far I've watched all of these DC direct to DVD movies and the only one I thought was good was Wonder Woman. I wish they'd just do more Justice League episodes.

Re: JUSTICE LEAGUE: CRISIS ON TWO EARTHS - Spring 2010

Another Fine-Entertaining movie from Warner.
James Woods owns the role of OWLMAN.
The other voice actors did a decent job.
I like the designs of the characters and backgrounds.
Overall gets a solid 'B' from me.

The Spectre short was AWESOME.
Gary Cole really nailed the voice.
Love the grainy look and the funk 70's music.
A+

Re: JUSTICE LEAGUE: CRISIS ON TWO EARTHS - Spring 2010

First, I absolutely loved The Spectre short. From the style of the animation to the backgrounds to the story (which could have used at least another 5-10 minutes of development rather than what seemed to be little more than a jump cut to the reveal of the villain). Gary Cole was phenomenal. I wish that ran for an hour and change and JL was a short.

As far as JL, it was probably my least favorite of this series of movies so far, besides Superman/Doomsday. There were a few highlights (James Woods as Owlman, the participation of the extended JL members, and I really enjoyed Mark Harmon's take on Superman, a character that I loathe), but for the most part it just felt like a pretty standard 'heroes are called in to help / heroes find themselves in peril / heroes fight / repeat' tale. It was a disappointment for me personally since I was a big fan of the Crime Syndicate stories when I was a kid.

Watching the preview for 'Batman: Under The Red Hood' right before probably didn't help. That looks like its going to be excellent.

I would like to see some more variation in the series than just Superman / Batman / Wonder Woman / JLA. The Green Lantern was a nice change of pace, but I wish they'd go forward with their plans for Teen Titans: The Judas Contract, and, while I know there's very little chance of this, I'd love to see individual feature-length flicks for Aquaman and Shazam!
