    Batman: Mask of the Phantasm

    ★★★★

    "Oooooh, BUSINESS! Sounds like fun!"

    The springboard sound effect after Joker vaults towards Abe Vigoda's Sal Valestra never ceases to crack me up. The sound effects, in general, are incredible in this. The Indiana Jones punch and gunshot effects add meaty weight to the action.

    ★★★½

    While the execution and tone are a bit clunky, I really admire Nimrod Antal for expanding the Predator universe in a good way. The teaming up with the Predator to escape the planet makes sense for the characters, but the plot direction brings up bad memories of AVP. But I love how quickly the plot shitcans the idea after presenting it to the audience, haha. Not sure if the conclusion was an intentional nod to the disastrous AVP, but if…
