justice league

Wow, a DC movie that I didn’t find completely underwhelming and disappointing.

In Justice League, some of DC’s most famous superheroes including Batman, Flash, Wonder Woman, Superman, Aquaman, and Cyborg, team up to stop Earth’s next great threat- A CGI video game character named Steppenwolf. Pretty sure it’s not the “Magic Carpet Ride” band but still waiting for confirmation on that.

Best Marvel movie, like some are saying? Nah. Best Thor movie yet? Easily.

Thor Ragnarok is the 226th movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the 435th superhero movie of the past 3 years. This one follows Thor in his third standalone feature, this time trying to make his way back home to save it from his evil sister. Oh, and he teams up with the Hulk, because… why not i guess?

spiderman

The 6th Spider-Man movie in 15 years lead by the third guy to play the character ends up being the best on yet. I honestly didn’t see that one coming.

Spider-Man Homecoming shows us the origin of Spider-Man for the third time, this time skipping over the radioactive spiderbite and Uncle Ben nonsense that has just gotten old at this point. Instead we find Tom Holland as a teenager already settled into his role. We follow him though high school problems and his fight against Michael Keaton, who plays the villain known as the Birdman Vulture.

wonder woman

Despite what the reviews say, once again, another movie this year turns out rather lackluster and disappointing.

Wonder Woman is yet another superhero origin story, this time of a powerful woman who is part God, I guess? The exact origins are murky, as are what exactly her powers are. But she’s powerful, has a magic sword, whip, and shield, is good at fighting, and wears a skimpy outfit. So that’s cool?

dr strange

I avoided seeing Dr. Strange in theaters because I was a little tired of superhero origin stories because they are pretty much all the same. Plus this one looked a little too odd and just not very interesting to me. But thanks to Redbox, I gave it a shot now. And it turns out this superhero origin story is… pretty much the same as all the other superhero origin stories.

Doctor Strange is the story of how Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) gets his powers during his recovery from a crippling accident. Did you know if you text and drive you could end up with magical powers? Me either.

Well the Oscars have come and gone and I’m still bitter Arrival wasn’t named best picture. But the good news is the summer movie season is fast approaching. In fact, apparently it starts in March now with Logan this week and King Kong next week. If only actual summer started in March…
