After I saw Justice League Doom, I decided to see if I missed any other Justice League features, and apparently I did. A lot of time. The first one I watched in order to catch up with Justice League: New Frontier.
What struck me as odd while watching New Frontier is that it seemed new and fresh. Apparently, I forgot that I had watched it only four years ago even though the story is out of weird and a throwback. Huh. All I can say is that the other animated films I saw in that blog must have been horrible because this time around, New Frontier wasn’t that great. I suppose it is because the story wasn’t a surprise and didn’t wasn’t greatly rewritten to suit TV and the times?
On the other hand, I liked Crisis On Two Earths a lot more. I guess I never saw it before, but it did have a lot of memorable themes – the parallel universe JLA (Crime Syndicate), cameos by (former) JLA reserve members (Black Canary, Firestorm, Black Lightning etc), and random tie-ins/in jokes to the DC universe (Wonder Woman’s invisible jet). I thought the writing was much better, with funnier jokes. I’d give it a 3.5 out of 5 and a 3 out of 5 to New Frontier.
