Hmm, quite intriguing if the movie used American animation studios like Radical Axis or Floyd County who do animation for Archer. I think that would be the first in this DTV line to go American. If I remember right, Floyd uses a combo of Adobe After Effects and Toon Boom Harmony.

The animation gives me a modernized Fleischer aesthetic vibe, if that makes sense :).

I'm guessing you've seen the first look video? It's harder to tell just from still images alone, though those do look a bit 'cleaner' to me (more polished?) than ones from Archer would.
No I have not (and if anyone has, please don't post it on here or talk about without spoiler tags) that's just the vibe I'm getting from the screenshots :).

Interesting. If you purchase this digitally, doesn't that include all of the Blu-ray extra features? If not, that sucks.

I really have to see what this looks like in motion. The art itself in the stills looks practically comic quality but then in some of the stills it almost gives me the vibe of something like the DC Nation Wonder Woman shorts. If these look great in motion on the DTV level, I'll be highly impressed.

It's a cool look for them to use, either way

Runtime makes no difference to me. It's all about how you manage to write whatever you want to tell in the amount of time you have. Are Mask Of The Phantasm or Return Of The Joker affected by the 75 min runtime? Is Batman v Superman a better movie because it's 3 hours long?
No, but it's an opportunity for the creative team to display (or unleash) more of their potential. An extended runtime is by no means a guarantee that the film will be *good* -- and less is often more -- but you never know, the longer runtime might just benefit the project. I tend to be cautiously optimistic about this sort of thing. After all, the slightly longer runtimes for recent episodes of Young Justice have served the show well, so there's definitely a case for the idea that a longer runtime can be a good thing!

Yeah, of course. I just mean in general I see a lot of people on internet forums who always think the longer the movie, the better it is. Specially in the blu-ray.com forum. I just don't get it.

I wouldn't want to see a movie that is 90 minutes long by default and they had to stretch it out to fill the runtime, as much as I wouldn't want to see a 75 minutes one that didn't have enough runtime to acomplish what it set out to

Since "better" regarding art is 100% subjective, there is no objective answer to this question. Regarding BVS, if you want a studio meddled product, watch the theatrical. If you want the director's vision fully realized (as it was intended to be watched) stick with the Ultimate Cut, which IMO is far superior to the studio cut they put in theaters.

Yes I’m still here. Some mental issues but there’s stuff I’m ready for like new Mao Mao and Close Enough, the latter I waited on for 3 years.

Hello, Light Lucario. My 4th of July went pretty well. I just want to mention that today is my birthday. I got a couple of nice cards with a little birthday money. We'll be having another barbecue tonight with plenty of birthday cake. I hope you'll be able to wish me a Happy Birthday.
