It might not be as emotional as Mask of the Phantasm but it's still a well written entry in the Batman series and it's a really fun action movie and the Timmiverse has some of the best animation out there. I have a feeling this is a test from WB hopefully they give us a good transfer (I have a feeling it won't be that great, just decent) but hopefully and if this works out, who knows Mask of the Phantasm later this year? =D

A decent enough movie, and I'll definitely be there day 1, but I really hope this is a precursor for the rest of the series/movies. Well, maybe not Subzero, that was balls.

And the Mr. Freeze movie was pretty good it's the weakest good one, Batman: Mystery of the Batwoman was terrible. I can't believed they churned out that mediocrity.

I'm pretty sure the DVD is in widescreen. I could be wrong though, it has been a while since I watched it.
Anyway, this is amazing news. This is my favorite of the movies, and finally get it on Blu-Ray is going to be amazing. Now, if they could just get to release all of JL on Blu-Ray properly, I would be a happy camper.

I didn't like this movie at all for whatever reason, it was very disappointing compared to the television series. I'd love to see "Batman Beyond: The Movie" on Blu, although it was probably originally animated in 480i for television anyway.RIP Kosty you are missed.
