How is the storyline?...Looks like the animation is well done...I may watch it this week since Superman & Lois is on a hiatus...

...
In general, it's a good plot that includes significant backstory regarding Bruce's father and Gotham's crime families. Also, the relationship between Selina and Bruce is fairly well developed. I agree that the animation is very nice. - You probably know I don't read the comics, but I've since learned that the identity of The Holiday Killer was different in the comics.

My only complaint is that Batman is depicted as bungling as a detective a couple of times, and winding up in more bad spots than I would have liked.

Well, I finished Lawrence of Arabia. It was good, and informed me about the Arab Revolt, but it didn't really seem like WWI, as I usually associate that with trench warfare. Since I'm now up to The Battle of Verdun in another WWI audiobook, A World Undone: The Story of the Great War, 1914 to 1918 by G.J. Meyer, I started watching a documentary about it. It comes in two parts. [Warning: full frontal male nudity out of the gate.]

From WW2 I went backwards to WW1, and from there I've gone further back to The American Civil War. I'm alternately listening to and watching a Great Courses series of lectures about it taught by the highly qualified and engaging, Prof. Gary W. Gallagher. I have just finished the lectures pertaining to the battles of Gettysburg and Vicksburg. And, as before, I've decided to access another medium, this time the 1993 epic, Gettysburg, starring Tom Berenger, Martin Sheen, Jeff Daniels, Sam Elliott, among many others.

At 4.5 hours, it's even longer than Lawrence of Arabia! So, it will take me a good while to finish it.

I'm more than halfway through. The realism of the battle scenes is impressive. This was facilitated by the fact that thousands of Civil War reenactors from across the country volunteered their time to come to Gettysburg to participate in the massive battle scenes. They provided period-appropriate uniforms, weapons, clothing, tents, and glasses, at their own expense (over $1,000 per person). As a group, reenactors are very meticulous about what they and others eat, wear, carry, or use, including horse hair toothbrushes and a regiment's proper brass buttons. (Wikipedia and IMDB)

Cute Trivia:
During the Atlanta premiere, Martin Sheen was increasingly annoyed by an audience member seated behind him who offered a running commentary of the film's characters, and what was about to happen. When the lights came on for intermission, Sheen turned to confront the person and realized it was former President Jimmy Carter. (IMDB)

I don't know....I mean I can't believe it's not here already, but I looked for it. The search function says it is not here.

This looks really interesting I can't wait to see this one and I also want to see that new ghost buster movie really badly. Hurry up, November!
