After a rough start, the DC film universe seems to have finally found its footing. People have anxiously […]
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.
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?
While I’m not a comic-con person in terms of ever going to one, there’s no denying how huge this past weekend is for movie fans. We usually get our first look at some movies we are highly anticipating. This year was no different. So, here are my thoughts on some of the trailers that were released.
Note: There may be minor spoilers, but nothing not given away in the trailer.
Man, this movie is brutal. Not really in the violent way, more so in the it’s terrible and a complete waste of a good idea way.
Batman v. Superman is the follow up to 2013’s Man of Steel and the second movie in the “DC Cinematic Universe”. It takes us to the aftermath of Superman’s (Henry Cavill) battle against General Zod in Man of Steel and shows us the consequences of having this God-like figure on Earth. Bruce Wayne, aka Batman, (Ben Affleck) lost some close friends and co-workers during the fight and sees Superman as a threat that must be dealt with. However a scheme by Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) forces them and Wonder Woman to put aside their differences to face a new threat. I spent 5 minutes writing that summary of the plot, which I think is more time than the people who wrote the movie actually spent on it.
