I still remember seeing this in the theaters as a kid. This movie is top tier Batman.
Origame - 7/21/2023, 12:50 PM
@Oberlin4Prez - yup. When people ask me "what more can you want" when I complain about Hollywood, this is it.

It's still ridiculous this was dismissed in theaters because batman forever was out at the same time. Biggest tragedy of film right there.
Oberlin4Prez - 7/21/2023, 1:38 PM
@Origame - the fact this story hasn’t been attempted to be adapted in live action is kind of amazing, but also I would be hesitant for just anyone to do it. Nolan could have probably pulled it off. The problem is, once you know who the phantasm is, it’s like how is there any mystery left.
Origame - 7/21/2023, 1:41 PM
@Oberlin4Prez - I think it's the fact she is a woman that ruins it for live action. In animation, you can more easily mess with the proportions to hide it, but in live action it's either gonna look obvious or you cheated by using a guy for most of the film. Just look at taskmaster in black widow.

@Oberlin4Prez - I had the same experience, but I have not watched it since. In my memory it is the best Batman movie I have seen, but I am not sure if I am just remembering with rose colored glasses. Would like to watch it again. Side note, do people still buy Bluray discs?
Shivermetimbers - 7/21/2023, 1:43 PM
@Origame - To be honest, I sort of felt that same way watching it as a kid. But it was such a good movie it didnt matter. I just felt bamboozled.

@regularmovieguy - the best theatrical Batman film to this day

Now this shit on the other hand is a f*cking masterpiece.
Th3Batman - 7/21/2023, 12:34 PM
One of the finest movies ever made, animated or otherwise. It's such a shame they're sitting on the perfect blue print (the dc animated universe) and have learned nothing from it while building their live action universe.

@Th3Batman -

It's always blown my mind how studios can nail an animated series but fail so miserably with live-action adaptions.
OrgasmicPotatoe - 7/21/2023, 12:36 PM
Damn that artwork is sexy !

Easily one of my favourite Batman movie.
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 7/21/2023, 12:38 PM
Cool artwork but you can't [frick] with the original.

PatientXero - 7/21/2023, 12:59 PM
@THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - agreed.
NicolausCopernicus - 7/21/2023, 1:09 PM
@THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - Always tought that batman looks like he´s falling down backwards as a kid
Odin - 7/21/2023, 1:18 PM
@THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - You can hear the Shirley Walker's theme while looking at that poster.
DudeGuy - 7/21/2023, 12:47 PM
Essential to any collection
AmazingFILMporg - 7/21/2023, 12:47 PM
Seeing this as a kid was everything 🥲.

Looks like they already upgraded the Apple TV version, definitely going to grab this soon
regularmovieguy - 7/21/2023, 1:04 PM

Not sure they have. The 4K doesn't release until September 12th.
Ha1frican - 7/21/2023, 1:08 PM
@regularmovieguy - If you go on Apple TV and search it shows the resolution under the description. It’s showing 4K for me rn although that might be the HBO Max version it doesn’t specify which app it is. The iTunes version shows as HD but has the updated cover art so it’ll probably get updated at or shortly after release
regularmovieguy - 7/21/2023, 1:29 PM

I own MOTP on Apple TV and it's still showing HD for me. The cover art has updated but I'm not sure the resolution has (yet). Let me know if you find out more.
Ha1frican - 7/21/2023, 3:07 PM
@regularmovieguy - Then yeah it seems the HBO Max version is updated. The Apple TV app aggregates basically every streaming app aside from Netflix and so if you have those apps connected (which I do with Hulu, Disney+, Max and a prime Video) it displays the quality as the highest among them. If it’s on Max already though I bet the oreowned versions will be updated eventually as Apple honors your original purchase with a free upgrade when the paid version goes live as long as it has the same title. The only time this didn’t happen for me was I had a digital copy of “John Carpenters Halloween” that didn’t get upgraded bc the sku they made 4K was just “Halloween” so I had to buy it again
LongMayHeReign - 7/21/2023, 12:52 PM
Has there really been no article about the Spider-Man 2 trailer yet or is it just eluding me?

Oh and Phantasm is awesome by the way!
AnthonyVonGeek - 7/21/2023, 12:56 PM
Best Batman movie ever made.
TheHumanSpider2 - 7/21/2023, 1:08 PM
...overrated movie

marvel72 - 7/21/2023, 1:19 PM
Love it, the animated series was great as well a show that was for Kids and Adults could watch it and enjoy it as well.
Starlight - 7/21/2023, 1:43 PM
I remember watching this one on HBO back in the 90's... even recorded it on VHS... :)
dragon316 - 7/21/2023, 2:20 PM
May buy it for Kevin conroy extra
SethBullock - 7/21/2023, 2:21 PM
Watched this a billion times when I was a kid, but why did you include the unnecessary spoiler in the article?

There might be readers that have not watched it yet.
hazapez - 7/21/2023, 2:32 PM
this brings to mind the dumbest logic when someone says, oh it's been so and so+ years *enter spoiler* about dexter or ESB or seven... like there can still be new generations that should be allowed to experience it as if it came out yesterday... dumb logic
Deadinside - 7/21/2023, 2:54 PM
👍 I was there on Christmas day of 93 sitting in that theater with six other people...!☮
Nightwing1015 - 7/21/2023, 4:47 PM
"In this animated feature set in the 1940s"

PoolParty - 7/21/2023, 7:21 PM
Loved this movie and book
kg8817 - 7/21/2023, 11:04 PM
I was six years old and remember VIVIDLY when BTAS played Sunday night at 8pm on Fox.

I remember seeing this in theaters. Masterpiece.

But is this the first time they’ve ever acknowledged that the show was meant to be set in the 1940’s? That one is new to me…
Nightwing1015 - 7/21/2023, 11:13 PM
@kg8817 - It's not set then, it's set in the 90s.

They've made this mistake specifically with Phantasm before though. There was a press release when the film came out saying it was set in the 1930s. But in the show we see the date it takes place as being the 90s.
NinnesMBC - 7/22/2023, 2:37 AM
Cool cover, the movie was good but it's been a long time since I saw it.

I do remember how Phantasm was loosely based from this other deep-dive villain from the Year 2 story, Reaper. I liked the story.
