Batman vs TMNT was pretty intense with it's action/violence, so I suppose this'll be a nice middle ground between that movie and Scorpion's Revenge.
Then again, Batman Vs TMNT was also partly a Nickelodeon movie, making it more intense by their standards.

Eh, I don't think Soul of the Dragon is gonna go that nuts in terms of bloody violence like the impaling, stabbing, etc. James Tucker once said a sure R rating is the getting consecutively hit in a short span of time, so something as simple as getting pummeled by a fist 5 times in a row gets a R rating. For a martial arts movie, very likely.

So, it's essentially about how much impact there is multiplied by how long the impact is, that determines what gets an R rating.

That seems a bit much to be, but maybe I'm just numb from watching a lot of action animation :p.

Not that I put much stock into how these ratings are given, but for what it's worth the reasoning for Soul of the Dragon is listed as "some violence", while Mortal Kombat: Scorpion's Revenge was "strong bloody violence throughout". So I would imagine this Batman movie will be tamer.

That Mortal Kombat was the most violent animated movie I've ever seen. The opening scene really put me to the test.
Hmmm. I haven't seen it, but I wonder how it stacks up compared to a few others I can think of (Turok, Son of Stone; Violence Jack; Fist of the North Star; Wicked City; etc.). Have you seen much ultraviolent anime, bats?

No, not really. So I wouldn't know how it compares to those.

I'm guessing a Soul of the Dragon trailer is coming real soon. Last year's 1st release Red Son had it's trailer out on December 22 but that was a 3 release year. In 2018, which was a 4 release year like 2021 will be, Reign of the Supermen's trailer released on October 22. So extrapolating from that, I'm thinking we might have a Soul of the Dragon trailer, probably through IGN, this coming Monday, the 19th.

Spot on detective work for a Batman movie, Yojimbo ;).

Hey guys, I'm back! Been gone for almost a year from having a lot on my plate but now I have more free time. I hope everyone here is making it through these tough and difficult times.
Today marks the 20th Year Anniversary of when Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask was released in North America. Majora's Mask was the second game from the franchise I played and certainly fits with the Halloween theme.
Why did Adult Swim air the Family Guy episode Wasted Talent as part of the Halloween special?
