Justice League

While Justice League comes nowhere near Wonder Woman, it is loads better than Batman V Superman.

We learn that Parademons have been sighted across the world, abducting people associated with Star Labs. After an attack on the Amazons by Steppenwolf, Diana approaches Bruce and they begin getting the team together.

As with a typical intro team-up, it does not come together the first time. We get snippets of backstory for the new characters to the DCEU: Flash, Aquaman, and Cyborg. Just enough to give us a hint of where their solo movies may go.

Part of the plot is bringing Superman back after the League fights Steppenwolf, but cannot stop him. Superman’s inclusion does bring everything together.

The plot is decent, but does feel rushed. You can tell DC/Warner Bros are playing catch-up to the Marvel movies. But it is still a fun movie.

The CGI was … not great. The very first scene of the movie opens with Superman and a CGIed out mustache. The main villain is all CGI as well. Poor CGI.

SSposterThis movie takes place after the events of Batman v Superman. Amanda Waller meets with some people and pushes her idea of Task Force X in a world without Superman. We spend a good chunk of the first part of the movie team-building. We get little snippets of how each person was apprehended. Which includes a few Batman scenes and one Flash scene. After the higher ups get a glimpse of what the Enchantress can do, Task Force X gets the greenlight.

Task Force X gets deployed after a failed mission by Rick Flagg and the Enchantress to stop a meta human threat in the subways of Midway city. Much gun play and violence ensue. Throughout the film, we follow the Joker as he works to get Harley Quinn out of custody.

TL;DR Didn’t feel like a complete story – had good segments. Kinda Meh.


Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice


From IMDB: Fearing that the actions of Superman are left unchecked, Batman takes on the Man of Steel, while the world wrestles with what kind of a hero it really needs.

Starring: Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, Laurence Fishburne

TL;DR Good characterization of Batman (maybe my favorite) and Wonder Woman. Terrible Lex Luthor. Meh story and plots.


Batman – Dark Knight

Whoa. This movie kicks so much … butt.

You have got to see this movie in the theater. But be sure to use the restroom before you go. This movie clocks in at 2 hours 30 minutes. Plus 15 minutes or so of trailers. Including trailers for the new Bond movie and Watchmen. Side note – the Watchmen trailer looks awesome!
