The Death Of Superman (2018)

Source: IMDb

What is it?

The 2018 animated superhero movie The Death Of Superman.

What is it about?

This is how IMDb describes this animated movie:

Superman battles against an insurmountable foe named Doomsday.

What do I like about it and what would other people like about it?

I liked that they at least attempted to create some emotional stakes and how they tried to somewhat build some relationships between several characters, that this movie was not too long and it was pretty straight forward, and that it handled Doomsday better than the recent live action version; and I think that other people will like that as well.

Final Thoughts

I liked this movie better than the animated Vixen movie / web series, like in Vixen there were some things that were skipped over and not shown that I think should have been shown, but that happened less in this movie.

This movie did not do as good of a job creating an emotional impact as they should have in my opinion, the fighting was pretty good at times, and overall I think that this movie was alright and pretty straight forward.

The end,

Vixen: The Movie (2017)

Source: IMDb

What is it?

The 2017 animated superhero television movie Vixen: The Movie.

What is it about?

This is how DC Entertainment describes this animated television movie:

Originally from Africa, Mari McCabe grew up an orphan after her parents were killed by local greed, corruption and wanton violence.

But Mari refuses to succumb to the terrors surrounding her.

Inheriting her family’s Tantu Totem, Mari can access the powers of animals – anything from the strength of a gorilla to the speed of a cheetah.

As Vixen, she fights valiantly to protect the world from threats like those that claimed her family.

Vixen: The Movie combines the first two seasons of the CW Seed digital series into a single uniform story and includes 15 minutes of all-new, never-before-seen content.

What do I like about it and what would other people like about it?

I like that it was about a superhero that I have never heard of, that a bit of African culture was involved, and that the main character was a woman; and I think that other people will like that as well.

Final Thoughts

This movie felt rushed and was predictable, it was not bad, it was average.

The end,
