    ★★★★

    (Amazon Prime - BFI Channel)

    Outside of a select few, old fashioned spaghetti westerns do little to interest me. I only watched this due to the obvious inspirations for Django Unchained, so it was a pleasant surprise at how much fun I had with Django.

    A tight 90 minutes of racially fuelled western action that was a lot more graphic and off-putting than I usually get from this era of westerns. It's raw, action heavy and rarely drags. The only…

    I was very much looking forward to this. I haven't read the comic, but everyone talked about it like it was the second coming of Jesus. An R-rated Batman film. It had potential to be amazing.

    Well, this is mostly just a horrible mess. The voice performances are great, Mark Hamill is incredible as expected as The Joker. The inclusion of both Hamill and Kevin Conroy makes me feel like it could be canon to the Arkham game series (Which…
