Batman:Under the Red Hood

Batman: Under the Red Hood was the first animated DC movie I have watched (I think). I found it on Netflix shortly after I started really getting interested in the comic book world. And personally, I loved it!

I haven't read "A Death in the Family" yet, and I am sure that this movie has many differences from the book. However, I found some parallels...

I noticed something while watching it after I had just won Arkham Asylum and had finished reading The Killing Joke. In the scene where Nightwing and Batman visit the Joker in Arkham, Batman slams the Joker against the wall. The Joker teases "You gonna do it this time? Or you just gonna put me in another body cast for six months?"

Well, that got me thinking about the end of AA, how Joker was wheeled away.

Also, Arkham City takes place about 6 months after AA.

I also noticed, when Jason lists off all the terrible things the Joker has done, he mentions "the friends he's crippled." Obviously, he means Barbara Gordon.

Anyway, if you like to see parallels like that, I recommend this movie.

Plus, its pretty dang good.

I enjoyed the emotion we see Batman go through when he realizes that Jason has been brought back, and twisted by evil. Alfred tries to console Bruce, but he just explains it was his fault. "My partner. My soldier. My fault." Not only batman's emotions, but Jason's as well. He wants to kill the Joker because he took him away from his "father".

(this is my first review...I am hoping I do better on others...)

    This was one of thr best movies from DC yet. Gotham Knights was just to risky and when you start something as exciting as PG-13 animated Batman movies...you kinda want to do something that isn't so un related to the actual comics. This movie however, made up for that. It made sense. It was very well acted by all of the cast(Impressive voice from john as the joker(Bender from furturama). It had very dark and surreal emotions through out the movie and was very original in my opinion. Any Batman fa...

    Ok, I just watched the movie and I want to get this out while it's still fresh in my head.   Just for the record, I watched the Blu-Ray version of the movie (is there any other way to watch movies these days?) First thing's first.  The movie starts off with the Joker beating Jason Todd to death with a crowbar.  Batman is racing to save him, but as Ra's so accurately predicts, "he won't make it in time." The first thing that threw me off was the voice of the Joker (John DiMaggio).  With everyone ...
