Happy #BatmanDay everyone! I know it was yesterday, but cmon. When is it not Batman Day? Anyway so I decided to get sign up for the DC Universe app (7 day free trial. I’m not crazy now.) & decided to check out some of the animated movies. To be honest, I’ve only seen a small handful of them. So starting to today I’m gonna catch up on the DC animated universe. Amongst hardcore DC fans, this considered arguably the best iteration of Batman. When an old love walks back into Bruce’s life & rekindles their relationship, unfortunately a sadistic mass murderer who being described as someone with “a dark appearance” is wiping out Gotham crime bosses. With Batman being framed for these kills, he’ll have to solve the mystery of this lethal masked assailant while dealing with his love life. Let’s watch the Dark Knight take on one of his most deadliest villains in fantastically animated fashion. Time to plunge into the crime ridden Gotham City & watch the theatrically released animated movie to Batman: The Animated Series. I haven’t seen this movie since I was about 8 or 9. This will be a very interesting revisiting.
I Am Vengeance.
I Am The Night.
I Am Batman!

Now I'm watching Batman: Mask of the Phantasm. I've been a Batfan for many many years and this is still, to date, the greatest Batman movie I've ever seen. As a continuation of the 90s Animated Series, you can expect the perfect casting of Conroy and Hamill, the music and art style are great. But the writing always surprises me, there is so much story crammed into a tiny running time. The introduction of The Phantasm, Batman being framed, The Joker wreaking havoc, Batman reminiscing his early years, Bruce Wayne falling in love. But they've balanced it all so well, it never feels too busy. And there is some moments of genuine character development which most live action adaptations have never managed.

Batman: Mask of the Phantasm (1993)
This DC animated movie follows the troubled yet heroic Batman, who is pitted against a mysterious figure who is rubbing out Gotham City's most dangerous criminals, and who many believe is the caped crusader himself. Batman's alter ego, millionaire Bruce Wayne, has other things on his mind: Andrea Beaumont, a woman who helps him recover from his need to avenge his parent's murder. With love in his life, this may mean that his crime-fighting days are numbered.
This was a first time watch for me, as I've never seen any of the DC animated movies before now, and honestly this one wasn't so bad! It took me a little while to get into this movie as the plotline didn't immediately grip me but I did find myself slowly liking this movie the more I watched.
Considering this movie is over 20 years old, the animation looks great! Obviously it's not as sharp as today's animated movies but it still holds up really well.
With fantastic voice-acting and a story that I really enjoyed by the end (although I did wonder what happened to a particular character??) , this movie is a must watch for Batman/DC fans!
"I couldn't save her, Alfred..."
"I don't think she wanted to be saved, sir. Vengeance blackens the soul, Bruce. You walk the edge of that abyss every night, but you haven't fallen in and I thank heaven for that. But Andrea fell into that pit years ago and no one, not even you, could have pulled her back." The Batman is coming to Rose City ComiCon once again. And the uniform just keeps getting better.
