Saturday, we picked up a couple of movies to watch at a local library branch. Our “main” library branch was closed due to a water main break, so we hit up another branch – and struck gold!
Luckily I found BOTH parts on the shelves!
My husband owns the Frank Miller graphic novel from which this two-part movie was adapted and has talked very fondly about it.
I have only read two graphic novels – Watchmen by Alan Moore – and Johnny The Homicidal Maniac by Jhonen Vasquez. I look forward to reading this!
My overall impression while watching this reminded me of an iconic quote from the 1976 film Network.
Wow – Batman is mad as Hell and isn’t going to take it any more.
I loved the 1989 Batman film, the 1992 sequel and Christopher Nolan’s first two Batman films. I like the animated 1990s series. And now I want to see the two movies we just rented…again! I loved seeing Batman kicking Superman’s ass! Can’t help but wonder how all of those nerd boys reacted – those nerd boys who ever talked about – or wondered who would win in a fight between Batman and Superman. And this, my friends – might be why this graphic novel was written!
I would love to see a live action adaptation of this!
Sigh…Guess I’ll have to settle for watching this…
