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.

The Accountant: John Wick Plus Rain Man Equals One Sharp Action Thriller [Review]

The Accountant: John Wick Plus Rain Man Equals One Sharp Action Thriller [Review]

Within minutes of the movie’s opening, it’s pretty clear that director Gavin O’Connor (Warrior) and screenwriter Bill Dubuque are set on putting a new spin on the term “ultimate weapon.” Sure, we’ve seen the “ultimate weapon” (deemed hero, villain, or vigilante) use his brains and muscles to maneuver through any situation. But this time, it’s different. A skilled mathematician in the field of accounting who also moonlights as a trained killer, Ben Affleck’s (The Town) Christian Wolff also battles autism. A plot centered on Christian Wolff’s current path to uncovering the truth combined with bang-up action to piece together his dogged past adds up (yes, pun-intended) to a sharp action thriller that is indulging 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.
