Hope Springs Eternal for DC Movies with Justice League (Review)

Hope Springs Eternal for DC Movies with Justice League (Review)

The road to Justice League, which brings together some of DC Comics’ most iconic superheroes, has not been without its share of debate or controversy. Up until this summer’s crowd-pleasing Wonder Woman, the three previous entries in the DC Extended Universe (which include Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and Suicide Squad) were hotly debated amongst both fans and critics for their movie’s storytelling decisions and character developments that showed DC Comics’ characters in different lights. While each of them was a box office success, it was apparent that it wasn’t enough to win over audiences. Fast forward to today and Justice League is viewed as a course correction for Warner Brothers’ DCEU going forward. While Justice League certainly has its issues and isn’t exactly coherent at times, each of the movie’s superhero characters are more than satisfying and help make the superhero team up an enjoyable action romp.

Ranking The DCEU Including Justice League

Ranking The DCEU Including Justice League

The DCEU has had plenty of issues so far, but there have also been some bright spots. It definitely didn’t hit the ground running like the MCEU, but I think they’re slowly but surely getting it right. After seeing Justice League, I can officially rank the DCEU films so far. Read more

The Lego Batman Movie: Everything You Love about Batman & More [Review]

The Lego Batman Movie: Everything You Love about Batman & More [Review]

The last time we saw the Caped Crusader on the big screen, he was in the hotly-debated Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice (Hey, I liked it, so sue me). In a dour mood and off on a killing spree, some cried that it wasn’t the Batman they grew up with while others said it fit more closely with his comic book iteration. Either way, Batman v. Superman found the Dark Knight in a tight spot and in the middle of countless debates/arguments between critics and fans of comic book characters that almost sent film Twitter into flames. Luckily, Batman is back to provide some fun in the form of Legos. The Lego Batman Movie is a spin-off from the hugely successful The Lego Movie, which featured an “all-too-serious-but-trying-to-look-cool” Batman voiced by the wonderful Will Arnett (Arrested Development). Embracing the masked vigilante’s nostalgia from his past iterations along with the Lego universe’s nonsensical humor, The Lego Batman Movie is a hysterical, absolute blast from start to finish.

Suicide Squad: Summer’s Biggest Disappointment is Saved by a Tremendous Cast [Review]

Suicide Squad: Summer’s Biggest Disappointment is Saved by a Tremendous Cast [Review]

Suicide Squad is being released at a critical time. For Hollywood, summer has scorched movie studios with an inconceivable amount of dull, worthless movies that fall into the category of “financial flops.” And for Warner Brothers, because of below expectation numbers back in March for Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, the microscope on Suicide Squad has intensified immensely. After months of buildup thanks to a strong marketing campaign, David Ayer’s (End of Watch) movie centering around the “Worst Heroes Ever” is finally here. Suicide Squad has problems that keep it from being a memorable. But nonetheless, it’s a somewhat delightful oddball comic book movie, thanks to a cast full of great characters. Read more

Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice – The ‘Anti-Hobbit’ A Trilogy Packed into One Movie [Review]

I’ve been sick of superhero movies for a while now, hype or no hype.  There’s just been so many.  I remember this happened with vampire movies and also zombie movies – not long after they get popular there’s a giant glut of the things.  Then someone comes along to reinvent it and gets blamed for the whole thing tanking.  The genre is ripe; I bet the Stephanie Meyers of superhero movies is busy making a genre-killer as we speak.  Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is probably not said genre-killer, but it is definitely a warning sign that one is coming.
