@Steevy It popped up out of nowhere. No one knew it was coming until it was just suddenly there. It was kind of surprising for everyone.

@  MidnightFox : (13 December 2017 - 05:40 PM)

She makes me buy my own present and then wraps it because she doesn't want to attempt to figure out what I own already. :D

@  Paladin : (12 December 2017 - 11:21 AM)

knowing the people behind it, the Obama stuffed animal would probably be a monkey.

@  Pennpenn : (12 December 2017 - 06:43 AM)

The only thing that would make that even dumber would be if there had been some "Obama bear" made at some point and Trump had made a tweet scorning it.

@  Steevy Maximus : (12 December 2017 - 12:14 AM)

Just look up the horror of "Trumpy Bear"

Most fans argue that we didn't lose Batgirl but rather gained Oracle. Meaning Batgirl really wasn't a very good character before that.

Barbra's Batgirl didn't really become a good character till post KJ media started working with her. Batgirl the identity didn't become a good character till others took up the mantle (both Cassandra Cain and Stephanie Brown). Its kinda like Death in the Family, the whole reason they did something 'bad' to her was a lack of popularity at least that's how it seems, just without a possibly rigged vote.

Big ol' piles of Nope.

 

Also, is the animation meant to be this bad? I mean, it's not even evoking the style of the comic, but especially around Joker's mouth is looks distinctly...unrefined.

Eh, I've seen worse, but I can understand finding it mediocre. As to why, as Mike Toole said in a column he posted on ANN today:

 

They've diminished in quality somewhat since the producers opted to start using Moi Animation instead of the artistically superior Telecom Animated Films as their animation unit.

 

And apparently Telecom Animated Films is a subsidiary of or works extensively with Tokyo Movie Shinsha, or TMS Entertainment, so that would explain the drop in quality!

 

EDIT: According to folks on Toonzone, the animation was done by the Answer Studio in Japan. Surprising, as I loved their work on Transformers Animated, but it is what it is.

Spoiler

So the video is the exact final scene? The comic page has the interpretation that Batman holds Joker and ... stops the laughter permanently. Hence no SFX at the last panel and the explanation for the title the Killing Joke.

"We were aware that it’s a little risky. There’s definitely some stuff in that first part of the movie that’s going to be controversial. Here’s where we came down on that specific issue: It was really important to us to show that both of the characters make some pretty big mistakes. I mean, his “parental skills” aren’t that great. Maybe never having had any kids of his own, he doesn’t realize that if you tell a kid to not do something, they’re going to want to do it even more. And then she makes some mistakes and then he kind of overreacts to her mistakes and then she overreacts to his overreaction. So it’s very human; it’s a very understandable story. It’s tricky because it’s messy, because relationships are sometimes messy. But to me and to [co-producer] Alan Burnett and to [screenwriter] Brian Azzarello, Alan and Brian, it was all very fascinating to us to explore that angle".

 

Did...did Bruce Timm just blame Barbara?

I already got the iTunes version of this. I plan on watching it tonight. It was my most anticipated comic movie of the year. Killing Joke has been one story I've been dying for them to do. I was planning on getting the HD iTunes version plus whatever BluRay release they did...like...please oh please oh please have a Blu Ray with figurine and mini-comic pack-in.

Now? Meh! I got the SD iTunes version just because I waited too long and I still want to see it once they get past this prologue. But I absolutely won't get the Blu Ray and even saving $$ by getting the SD instead of HD has me feeling like I spent too much.

I've never been a fan of this Bruce/Barbara ship.
1. Age difference
2. Authority figure
3. Barbara has always been paired with Grayson
4. You just don't hug your best friends daughter

Just...eww!

I mean...how do you hug up an animated Batman feature with Kevin Conroy, Mark Hammel, Tara Strong, based off one of the top Batman stories ever...just...how do you hug that up.

I'm still planning on watching it tonight. But I've gone from "can't wait, this is gonna be the best thing ever," to "this is going to hurt me."
