Batman: Death in the Family is the latest ripoff con job from Warner Brothers Animation. They were thinking to themselves, well our movies aren't doing so well, so let's just retcon an entire movie that we think still has some gas, how about Under the Red Hood? It's a recognizable title, a title we're still coasting off the fumes and good name of, and people still like it; let's slap together a 30 minute short with the cheapest animation possible through an overseas company with inferior quality, cobble that 30 minutes into another title and market it as an "interactive" movie. Let's stretch this thing out and pad the hell out of it by slapping it into another story in the most awkward way we can. We'll patch any of the holes with ADR dialogue and still images, and maybe it'll work. This movie is the equivalent of fixing a dirty carpet hack job. All right guys, get the hot glue, a bunch of duct tape, gum, plaster, anything that'll work, oh but we're still gonna charge you for it. Can you even call it animation when nothing moves on screen? Warner Brothers can't look me in the eye and say that with a straight face. Animation implies that something is moving on the screen. Instead of actually animating it, cause that's too much work, let's just make things stand very still then dump a whole bunch of exposition and narration, cause we aren't able to tell a story visually anymore. This is the worst tricking the audience gimmick since Cloverfield Paradox. We haven't even gotten to the story yet, which is another carpet crammed into a dumpster, then set on fire. Jason Todd is one of the worst character that DC created, and no one cares about him or his story. People realize they killed him off back in the day for a reason, right? I guess we don't learn from our mistakes, something that Warner Animation can't figure out. All this movie proved to me is that no matter what universe Jason Todd is in, he's still a dick and a murdering psychopath. Basically, he was screwed up from the start, and screwed no matter what. We can't do anything new with him, I guess. I'd be embarrassed to call myself a writer if I wasn't able to do something clever with a character. People are still drinking the cool aid thinking Warner Animation still makes quality films, which they haven't done in at least 10 years. It's funny to see them so desperate though, to the point of turning into a sleazy fix-it-up plumbing company that still charges you when they exploded your entire bathroom.
