I really do begin to get sunburned after about 5 minutes of direct exposure, nowadays.  Side effect of already being pasty then going on a particular medication.  Yay?

Could it be that, perhaps, these different cultural values might lead to a different approach seeming appropriate?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:32 PM)

Hm. Back when we were arguing about the Legends comic, I seem to recall being repeatedly told that Japan had different cultural values than the US (and therefore anyone who had a problem with anything at all was wrong to voice that opinion ever).

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:23 AM)

Plus, as much as I hate to admit it, every single anime character is built to suit the audience's tastes so they buy more merch/do other things that allow $$$ to flow in the production committees direction, so the authenticity is certainly not for representation's sake.

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:18 AM)

Both those anime air at midnight and are aimed at a very specific audience in a whole other media landscape. Major projects have press releases about almost everything, and there are groups just waiting to pat anybody on the back for doing what they want (GLAAD, HRC, etc)

@  B-Fox : (19 February 2020 - 03:16 AM)

It's funny that a friggin' anime about zombie idols and an anime about a school of anthropomorphic animals can have really positive trans characters WITHOUT a press release about their inclusion in the series prior to the episodes airing or having the creators announcing it on social media and patting themselves on the back for doing a thing.

From their Press Release on the new Animated film from DC:

 

BURBANK, CA (May 30, 2017) — A looming global catastrophe forces Batman and Nightwing to partner with an unlikely hero in Batman and Harley Quinn, the next entry in the popular series of DC Universe Original Movies. Produced by Warner Bros. Animation and DC Entertainment, the all-new, feature-length animated film arrives August 15 on Digital and August 29 on Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack, Blu-ray Deluxe Giftset, Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD.

Spawned from an original story by animation icon Bruce Timm, Batman and Harley Quinn will be available in several popular formats as the first Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack ($44.98 SRP) release of a DC Universe Original Movie; Blu-ray Deluxe Giftset ($39.99 SRP), featuring an exclusive Harley Quinn figurine; Blu-ray Combo Pack ($24.98 SRP); DVD ($19.98 SRP); and Digital ($19.99 HD, $14.99 SD). The Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack features an Ultra HD Blu-ray disc in 4K with HDR and a Blu-ray disc featuring the film; the Blu-ray Combo Pack features the film in hi-definition; and the DVD features the movie in standard definition. The Ultra HD Blu-ray and Blu-ray Combo Pack include a digital version of the film.

The latest DC animated film features a stellar voice cast led by Kevin Conroy (Batman: The Animated Series) reprising his role as the Dark Knight, alongside Melissa Rauch (The Big Bang Theory) making her debut as the irrepressible Harley Quinn. Loren Lester, the voice of Robin in Batman: The Animated Series, returns as Nightwing. Paget Brewster (Criminal Minds) and Kevin Michael Richardson (The Cleveland Show) provide the voices of the villainous duo Poison Ivy & Jason Woodrue, respectively.

Batman and Harley Quinn Enhanced Content, Ultra HD Blu-ray, Blu-ray Deluxe Giftset, Blu-ray and Digital

The Harley Effect (Featurette): Harley Quinn, has a deep history with the fans of the DC Universe. This featurette traces her humble roots from her creators, to those that portray her at Comic book conventions. She is a symbol of strength and beloved by many.

Loren Lester: In His Own Voice (Featurette): This documentary examines actor Loren Lester’s legacy within Batman The Animated Series, Dick Grayson’s character, and the popularity that surrounds Lester’s interpretation of the Boy Wonder.

A Sneak Peek at the next DC Universe Original Movie: A behind-the-scenes look at the next entry in the popular series of DC Universe Original Movies, featuring thoughts from the talented filmmakers and voice cast.

From the DC Vault – Batman: The Animated Series – “Harley and Ivy” and “Harley’s Holiday”.

 

 

 

This looks awesome to me! I am especially stoked for it as it is coming out in 4K on UHD Bluray being the first hand drawn animation on the format. With it in 4K, Conroy and Lester being back, and in the TAS style, I am really looking forward to seeing this film.

*Sees Bruce Timm attached to the project*

 

*Sees the heavy handed sexual tension between Nightwing and Harley*

 

Yup. I've got a pretty good read where this film is going.

 

A) Nightwing has more sense to even engage Harley in playful banter no matter what her stated motivations are.

 

B) You can't try to make a commentary on the recent over-sexualization of Harley with her beating up a restaurant patron and then proceed to put Harley in all the sexual situations.

 

C) There's not a scenario out there that would somehow have Batman and Nightwing - two of the world's premiere detectives - going to Harley Quinn to track down Poison Ivy. I don't care if she's got a partner this time around, Batman and Nightwing are both suitably familiar with Ivy to likely know better where she'd be located then Harley Quinn.

 

D) Repeating because it bears repeating - there's no way Nightwing would want to get it on with Harley Quinn. I mean, it feels like a tremendous disrespect to the character. Not simply because Timm doesn't seem to comprehend he's crossed the line from "risque" to "creepy" storytelling with such moves, but because Harley is associated with the Joker. Dick Grayson isn't stupid enough to want any kind of piece of that.

The teaser had me up to the point Batman walks in on Harley and Nightwing having a tickle fight on a bed. Not going to lie, after The Killing Joke, Timm's lost a lot of my trust and the admission by the co-writer that Timm basically had everything plotted and storyboarded by the time he came aboard does nothing to enhance the quality.

 

Especially since we've got another unnecessary relationship drama - with a known associate of the Joker - thrown into the mix.

I saw the art style of the Batman Animated Series and I was like "yay! I'm all for it." Then I saw Timm's name attached and I was like "Uh oh!" Then I saw the Harley/Nightwing angle and I'm just like "hug you, Bruce Timm!"

Seriously, this is the second Batman movie he's made that should have been an easy home run but people don't want any part of because of his shit.

Bruce Timm just needs to get laid and stop taking his frustrations out on these movies.

The most offensive aspect of this film, besides Melissa Rauch's voice-acting being just barely off enough to be thoroughly irritating, is Nightwing's mullet with the slicked down hair in front.

The mullet was okay in the 90s, with the spiked up hair. But, if they're going to modify bad hair, make it better, not worse.

The main thing that bugged me about the sneak preview was that Tara Strong wasn't mentioned at ALL.  They gushed over getting the original VAs for Batman and Nightwing, but said nothing about Tara even as they fell all over themselves to praise getting someone from Big Bang Theory to slum with them.

This is marketing. Why remind people of something better that's missing?

Also, Arleen Sorkin is Harley's original voice actress. I think she retired. Tara Strong was her replacement years after the series was over.

Rauch has what it takes to be a good Harley voice, i feel. It's just not showing up here in the least.

And yeah, with Timm involved even the rest of the things this has going for it (Loren Lester's back, yay) may not be enough.

Melissa seemed to be doing alright as Harley's voice.  Hell, she'd make a decent enough live action Harley as well, but I digress. 

 

I really don't need all the flirting or anything like that, but if it's just a minor, background thing I'd be okay with it.  I do hope this movie ends with Harley moving in with Ivy and we can roll into those two having a movie and then maybe Gotham Sirens.

I want to give this a chance. I really do. The old Animated Series was one of the greatest cartoon series ever before or sense. And hey...Bruce Timm was a part of that. I may wind up seeing this. But it's probably going to be one of those "this is Bruce Timm's last chance. He hugs this up, no more!

Melissa seemed to be doing alright as Harley's voice.  Hell, she'd make a decent enough live action Harley as well, but I digress.


I'm actually a big fan of Big Bang Theory...or at least I used to be before my DVR started getting filled up with a bunch of stuff and I had to trim things down. The part where she was doing the whole stop the car that's him part fell flat for me. But she seemed to do okay otherwise. But at this point, Harley's been voiced by several different people. So I'm not against them taking a chance here. 
 

I really don't need all the flirting or anything like that, but if it's just a minor, background thing I'd be okay with it.

If it were just one scene we could later ignore ever happened...and if this hadn't become what Timm has become known for as far as ruining Killing Joke for...mmmmmaybe. But as I noted in the Killing Joke thread...at least in Killing Joke...it wasn't something that was a minor background thing that we could ignore. It's front and center and he absolutely will not let it go.

If he makes the same mistake here, I'm done with him.

I do hope this movie ends with Harley moving in with Ivy and we can roll into those two having a movie and then maybe Gotham Sirens.


You see, this I could get behind. The whole Ivy/Harley ship has been a thing ever since they got together in the original show. And that there's only one bed in their hideout was not a detail that was lost on some people. And I think it's even been confirmed in interviews that...yeah...they're a couple. So I wouldn't mind Harley and Ivy getting back together at the end of it all.

What's getting my ick factor worked up is Nightwing being tied to a bed with a firm "Don't get any ideas" and Harley casually flipping off the light with flippant "too late." Umm...yeah...Timm? Rape's not okay just because the victim's a guy.

Just sayin'.

My g-d, I saw it with some friends. Every time my friend's laughed, I wanted to call them traitors.

I think I liked naming the girls in Super babes (we wondered about Granny Goodness) and seeing the classic henchmen in the bar (Calendar Girl's Chippendales, the steroid girl from the farmer with mutant animals, joker's three stooges from the Creeper ep, Freeze's parka girls. Who were the two with the caramel and black stripes who gave Batman the milk? Who's henchmen were they?)

But, wow, the sex, the farting, Harley whining, Swamp Thing and the ending with the kissing? So embarrassing. Ivy's final attack on Ivy might have kinda funny but wasn't pulled off so well. The animation was quite atrocious too.
