I just watched and returned 3 movies with my Netflix. Here's the problem. I don't really have much to say about them. I figure I can do one paragraph on each just to get the little thoughts I have out of my system.
The Cutting Edge: The Magic of Movie Editing
The title pretty much sums it up. Just an hour and a half documentary on film editing. It's pretty comprehensive as it talks about the evolution of style over the ages. The movie includes interviews from some pretty major names in the industry.
The verdict: While I liked it, I don't think anybody would enjoy it who wasn't a film geek of some form, aka not for the casual viewer. (I still can't stand Quentin Tarantino as a person. It reminds me of Amadeus; why did God choose that guy to give so much talent to?)
Justice League: The New Frontier
There was a preview for this on my Superman Doomsday DVD. I'm pretty selective of which superheroes I'll watch, so I really felt like I was taking a gamble on this Justice League movie. I think David Boreanaz from Joss Whedon's Buffy and Angel was a huge draw.
The verdict: It's a pretty entertaining movie, but unlike Superman Doomsday, I don't think the casual viewer would enjoy it as much. I think it requires a certain nerdyness to enjoy.
Batman: Gotham Knight
You may have seen the ad for this one. It's advertised as being from the same producers as Batman Begins and The Dark Knight. There are six short animated movies which all come together to form an hour and fifteen minute feature. Each short gets its own director, so each is stylistically different (sort of like The Animatrix.) The story is supposed to bridge the gap between Batman Begins and The Dark Knight. I doubt it's really necessary to watch this before The Dark Knight, but I think it'll probably enhance your experience.
The verdict: If you've seen Batman Begins and are planning to see The Dark Knight, check out Batman: Gotham Knight.
Superman Doomsday advertised the Justice League movie. The Justice League movie advertised Batman: Gotham Knight. Batman: Gotham Knight advertised a new animated Wonder Woman movie. I was about to mentally cast it aside until I found out that Nathan Fillion and Keri Russell (Russell as Wonder Woman) would be starring, uniting the two for the first time since last year's Waitress . So now, it looks like my days of watching these animated superhero movies aren't over...
