Directors: Miguel Sapochnik.
Synopsis: Terms of surrender are rejected and accepted. As the Starks prepare to fight, Davos loses something dear. Ramsay plays a game. Daenerys faces a choice.
Every season of Game of Thrones has one of those episodes. The ones that make you wonder if you’ve gone too far, if you’ve invested too much… ‘Battle of the Bastards’ is such an episode. Even now, I sit here writing this, in part – speechless. I don’t know where to start, or where to end, and I don’t even know if I’m still the humane being that I once considered myself to be after watching it. That’s the power of Game of Thrones. This is of course, in part due to Miguel Sapochnik’s excellent directing, »

Stars: Jason O’Mara, Yvonne Strahovski, Stuart Allan, Sean Maher, Morena Baccarin, Steve Blum, Gaius Charles, John Dimaggio, Robin Atkin Downes, James Garrett, Ernie Hudson, Christine Lakin, Vanessa Marshall | Written by J.M. DeMatteis | Directed by Jay Oliva
After Batman goes missing, Dick Grayson takes up his mantle as He and Damian Wayne have to protect Gotham City, while also trying to find the original Batman. Two new allies, Batwoman and Batwing arrive to help investigate Batman’s disappearance.
So here we are with another ‘Original’ movie from DC, who were once a Juggernaut when it came to releasing a constant stream of excellent animated movies that eclipsed the majority of DC’s live-action catalogue. But it does appear (apart from a few films like Jl: Gods and Monsters and Batman: Assault on Arkham) that things are not going to change any time soon (especially with how Justice League vs. »
The newly integrated DC Animated Universe expands with its latest offering, Batman: Bad Blood. While Batman (Jason O’Mara) can work best as a loner, he casts a long enough shadow that somehow involves others to take up the mantle of the Bat. We’ve seen Nightwing (Sean Maher), the former first Robin, and the addition of Bruce Wayne’s son Damian (Stuart Allan) as the new Robin has added an edge.
The new animated film, out now from Warner Home Entertainment, has been sold as the major introduction of Batwoman (Yvonne Strahovski) but we also get Batwing (Gaius Charles) and at the end a cameo from Batgirl. As a result, it’s actually beginning to feel a little too busy with so many players there’s not enough time to properly service them.
