The Crotchety Old Man Has Spoken: Batman: Year One – It’s Here! (updated from 2011)
Special weekend entry because I’m so excited the trailer for DC’s new animated movie, Batman: Year One, hit today.
DC is kicking ass on these movies which has me always wondering why they bother with live action features instead of upgrading to CGI animation. Hell, Paramount is throwing their hats into the ring with the success of this year’s Rango.
For half the money of a live action summer blockbuster can produce a 90-minute CGI feature that allows for full translation from comic book to cinema of any IP. And, because it’s animation, it would be more widely accepted and enjoyed by a younger audience.
Maybe there’s something I’m missing.
The Experience Is Everything!
