My Thoughts:
I decided to start my marathon with this one as it also gets an addition out of the way for my birthday marathon... as a big portion of this film takes place on Lois Lane's birthday. This is a good animated film... I enjoyed it quite a bit. Though in a way I did hate to see Superman's last adventure. Either way... if you are a fan of DC Animated Films... I am sure you will enjoy this one as well. Definitely worth the time put in to watch it.

My Thoughts:
This is the first time I ever seen this film. And I must say... I enjoyed it a lot! I really liked Supergirl in this one. Her being a teen that is having a bit of trouble dealing with her life. It has a very good storyline. Though there is a couple things I didn't care for here. First off I noticed right away... I didn't care for the way they drew Superman. It is more noticeable in some scene then others... but they made his chin too long. Another thing I didn't care too much for is how they re-wrote the origin of Brainiac. But they made the story so good that all is forgiven. I especially liked how the film ended. It even shows that there is a good chance of continuing the storyline. Over-all this is one I highly recommend!

My Thoughts:
Brittany and I just watched this one for the very first time. We both enjoyed it quite a bit. Another of Tim Burton films... which we both have grown to enjoy. But I must ask... what is it with Tim Burton's characters all looking like they belong in The Addams Family? Not a bad thing mind you... just what his characters reminds me of. The old Addams Family universe. This is a fun film... definitely one I would recommend checking out. It is just one that I find a little difficult to talk about. A strange but good film.

My Thoughts:
We just finished this one. And I must admit... I went into this one not knowing what to expect. Going by the trailer it could have been good or bad. Luckily I enjoyed it much more then I thought I would. It was a lot of fun to watch... especially seeing some of the characters from actual video games. The story easily kept my interest. I would suggest giving this one a chance if you haven't already.... don't think you will be sorry.
