Review Series – DC Animated Originals

As the DC Cinematic Universe continues to shoot itself in the cock, the thought of the brand’s most iconic heroes and heroines is starting to leave a sour taste in the mouths of the moviegoing public. But not to worry. DC have an animated universe, too – kind of. That’s where they keep all of their good stuff. And some not-so-good stuff. And, I suppose, some really strange curiosities that you’ll never, ever see in live-action. It’s a much more interesting library than the slop they’re currently throwing at the big-screen, anyway. So, our resident idiot critic, Jonathon, is going to be taking a look at the entire catalogue. Thank him later.

In all seriousness, it’s worth remembering that there’s a lot more to DC, their characters and their output than dreary Zack Snyder movies. That’s what this series is about: Shining a light on all the interesting stuff, and leaving the big fuckups to stew unexamined. Anyway, let’s get on with it. Updates are every Tuesday.

We need your help. Ready Steady Cut is an independently owned and operated outlet, and would like to remain so. But online advertising revenue is so pathetic that the only way to do that is by publishing clickbait nonsense and farming hate clicks. We’d rather not do that. So, we need your help. Now we’re reaching more readers than ever before, and providing a platform to more volunteer writers than ever before, we want to find an approach that builds a closer connection between our writers and readers while keeping our content free and accessible for everyone. And we want to get rid of ads. If you’d like to help us do that, please consider donating to our Patreon page. Over a million people have visited the site in the last few months – if a tenth of that number donated as little as $1, our future would be secure. Thank you.


Ready, Steady, Cut! is a website and podcast for your eyes and ears, dedicated to all things film. It’s fun and funny; silly and serious. And it’s aimed at people like you.
