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.

Fantastic Beasts: J.K. Rowling’s Creatures Enchant in Satisfying Harry Potter Spin-off [Review]

Fantastic Beasts: J.K. Rowling’s Creatures Enchant in Satisfying Harry Potter Spin-off [Review]

For nearly two decades, J.K. Rowling’s wizarding world has been a force to be reckoned with, first in bookstores and then in movie theaters. Rowling herself is due all the credit for creating the magical universe inhabited by memorable characters centered on Harry Potter and his friends. Now, Rowling is back with her first screenplay, which expands a short story previously mentioned in the Potter series – Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. The short story itself may only be 126 pages, but the possibilities for expanding this briefly-mentioned story within the Rowling universe into a whole new franchise are endless–if done correctly. Despite a fairly straightforward plot, Rowling offers more than enough to invest in a new spin-off franchise, which features new charming characters, impressive, visually-rendered magical beasts, and a story that, while simplistic, offers up a likable, leading wizard in Newt Scamander, who warrants further character exploration.
