Western Animation is pretty damn cool! It's been around for over a hundred years, ranging from serious to silly, to both!

    I caught that first one before your edit, cloudeagle. Don't think you can hide it with a ninja edit.

    But seriously, I should watch this Justice League stuff sometime. I was going through an immature "man, cartoons suck" phase when it premiered and missed most (all?) of it.

    Hah, that Wonder Woman clip was awkward.

    "In this country we have free speech."

    What country? Space? You're in the Justice League and you're in space protecting the world.

    I love slips like that. I also love Justice League. Animated DC has always been quality work.

    We don't even care... whether we care or not...

    D'oh!

    The show has its ups and downs... then again the show's "downs" are never less than darn good. It's all worth watching (and I think you can find most of the episodes on youtube), but the second season of Justice League Unlimited is just mind-blowing. The best season of anything Bruce Timm has ever done.

    Also you get plenty of this guy:

    Spec Spidey is THE BEST film depiction of Spider-Man. Period.

    Among the many reasons... it's the one that actually worked in Spider-quips during every fight.

    Hm. Pointless rambling. Batman and Superman Link up via batman/Superman Adventures. In Superman, a lot of Justice League members are introduced, which links them to the Justice League Intro, as well as the JLU recruitment. Batman beyond is linked to Batman. Zeta project comes from Batman Beyond, but is referred to in Justice League Episodes. Static Shock is a Whore and is linked to everything except superman. Teen Titans is somewhat loose, but Robin is from one of the later robins of Batman:TAS. Kid Flash is presumably the younger version of Flash in Justice League and JL:U, which places Teen Titans pretty early in the timeline, probably right after Batman:TAS and before Batman/Superman Adventures. Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths is the link between JL and JL:U but with the characters changed a bit. It explains Wonder Woman's invisible Jet, and the need for recruitment and the first new members of the JL:U.

    A couple months ago I ordered basically all of the boxed sets of Batman: TAS, Superman and Justice League. I'm still working my way through Batman, but watched the other two in their entirety. Totally worth every dime and it's amazing how many well known actors do voices on these series.

    Definitely.

    And what's wrong with that Superman scene? Not only is that fight pretty epic, but all of it happened because Lex Luthor played him like a fiddle to make people wonder why they shouldn't be terrified that their well-being is put in the hands of godlike beings that could take over in a heartbeat if they wanted to.

    This was probably directed at me. In that case, I just find Superman to be an intolerable character. The scene itself was very well made and excellent entertainment, even if he was in it. But this is beside the point, and hence I shall treat you to first 20 seconds of this clip from an exemplary episode of Batman TAS:

    Part of the reason JLU was awesome is that they did some very, very interesting things with Superman's character in it, even if you're not necessarily a fan of Supes.

    I think Titan A.E. suffered from the same problem as Treasure Planet... neither movie knew whether to be hard-boiled sci-fi or kid-friendly. Both are certainly interesting.

    Now that gets me nostalgic about TP's depiction of Long John Silver as a cyborg. The flesh parts were hand drawn, the machine parts were CGI. Both worked absolutely seamlessly, but was a huge pain to animate. If I remember right, the animators worked on the extended sequence of Silver in the kitchen for 18 months straight.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2oxGAfIm5l0

    And poor Don Bluth. Titan A.E. was his last film, I think. Guy never did live up to the masterpiece that was the Secret of NIMH ever again.

    I wanted to like Titan AE but it just felt so... Mediocre I couldn't stand watching it.

    Treasure Planet on the other hand was a ton of fun to watch.

    It was a pretty cool bit of writing, though it lost a little bit when two seconds later he punches Darkseid through half a dozen buildings, with people clearly underneath, if not necessarily inside.

    I noticed the same thing in the Superman: Doomsday movie, where he meteor-slams Doomsday into the ground from orbit... right in the middle of Metropolis. It created a gigantic crater. Shouldn't Superman's MO be to remove the fight to Greenland or the Sahara or somewhere as quickly as possible so he can unload on dudes without causing collateral damage?

    So how many people died in the captain Marvel vs Superman fight? Several buildings where collapsed and they all had the lights on, which seems to sugest they where occupied at the time.

    I liked both Titan AE and Treasure Planet, but both had flaws. Titan AE had anonymous villains, I had no idea why they wanted Earth gone or who they even where. Treasure Planet should have stayed Treasure Island since the sci-fi didn't really add anything to the story. The best part of Treasure planet was the Silver/Hawkins father/son relationship and that would have been just fine in an regular adaption. Silly space aliens did nothing for me.

    That city they were fighting in was empty apart from the reporters Lex had brought in. No one had moved into those buildings yet.

    I always kinda though of the aliens as a background info sort of thing, or a piece of the scenery considering how little importance they actually had to the story. The movie seemed to work relatively well for me in that mindset.

    Yeah, I certainly didn't mind the sci-fi bits, even if it all just boiled down to window dressing. As I said, cyborg Silver is just damn cool.

    I just wish the movie could have picked a tone and stuck with it.

    True, although I do believe that the movie does get an undeserved amount of scorn. Treasure Island was plain great though, especially Silver.
