Can someone recommend me the best cartoon comic book movies? I recently watched The Death Of Superman and really enjoyed it and want to explore more of the genre. 

I enjoyed Superman: Red Son. There are others too. Like Justice League Doom.

Transformers The Movie is also worth tracking down.

There's a list of the DC movies. Most of them are pretty good. Batman and Robin is fun if you're a fan of the original  Batman TV series.

Oh good. A big grey CGI villain.

When watching Justice League the last thing I thought was “This needs to be two hours longer and even more Zack Snydery.”

In fairness it was quite cold when they were filming.

Crisis on two earths is my favourite one they ever did but loads of them are really good including some already mentioned.

I think that's part of why I find the DC film stuff so frustrating. Their animated stuff has been great over the years. Even their TV output has been pretty okay overall. I know it's a bit teen drama-ish but they still managed to do decent crossovers and feature quite a lot of characters.

I still think it's just a lack of patience on their part and a misunderstanding of what has made Marvel so successful. They seem team ups and crossovers and whatever else and think that's just something to jump into without years of proper successful build up.

Marvel weren't able to throw out Guardians or Ant Man before winning over an audience to a point where the brand itself was the selling point. DC may be a big name but they've not managed to get that same respect and adulation in their recent comic book movie phase at all. I really wish they could as they have some fantastic characters and some great stories to pull from.

WW84. I found the story less offensive then in the first one (hated the whole No Man Lands bit), but also far more bland and thought the actual ending with the wishes to just be a load of nonsense. Can’t wait to see Patty Jenkins make a boring Star Wars film now before completing this trilogy.

Has anyone managed to get HBO Max in the UK? Wouldn’t mind seeing WW1984 and a few other things they have if it’s possible

Most of their TV stuff ends up on Sky/Now TV, WW84 is supposed to be heading to PVOD on the 13th January - I assume from most streaming stores rather than one in particular.

So which category has Wandavision fallen into? Is it the “OMG~! THIS IS THE GREATEST THING EVER!” one or “This isn’t how I imagined it would be, Fuck Disney and death to the writers!” one

I loved it, but I enjoy old B&W comedy stuff anyway. Its, up to now, fun and warm, with an undercurrent of nods to the overarching story.

Neither of these really describe it. It is a perfectly acceptable, intriguing enough first couple of episodes without being anything all that outstanding. The potential is there and we will have to see what they deliver over the next few episodes.

I really enjoyed Wandavision. Wife didn’t because it wasn’t explaing anything. I loved the way they captured the 50’s/60’s sitcoms and can wait for the 80’s to be honest. It’s insane, but the level of commitment to the periods they were doing was great (and the little touches like the house being different in each episode were great). Excited to see where it goes

I probably would've loved anything Marvel at the moment but it's a genuinely great show. Certainly helps that I love old shows like that anyway so that adds to it overall, but it succeeds beyond that. Just a real joy to watch really.
