First, let me say how hyped I was for this movie. I was nuts over it.
These characters are my childhood, shit, my adulthood, more so than any other heroes.
was so excited that for the last month I was avoiding everything about it
online and Tv; of course, you can't dodge it all, but I did my best.
was even taking the time to workout beforehand all the things I didn't
understand, like or agree with, based on the trailers I'd seen
(before going Dark) and telling all my friends my ideas as a way to
counteract all the negative talk already circling the drain—and this was
before the actual first reviews came out.
I was supposed to see the movie with one of my best friends, a Die-In-the-Cape Superman aficionado, who
like me, also enjoyed Man of Steel. But I'm glad I didn't see it with
him, because he was loosing faith early on, despite all my theories
and how I fervently denounced hater trash-talking—mostly cause many weren't fans of the genre or didn&…
This is going to be a stream of thought, rather than a planned out, book-report style review. I hope to cover several points, but, if I miss or neglect some, I'm sure you won't care—you've already read far too many reviews of this movie anyway. So, does it really matter that yet another unknown is throwing his Two Cents into the wind for whoever to read? I didn't think so. And, to further the point, the next time something like Star Wars gets placed in my lap, maybe then I'll have real room to critique. This is just for fun and because I'm a geek. For me, blogging about this stuff is the next best thing to sitting around with friends and going over and over all the little details for hours on end. I mean, I'd like to stay married. :)
Ok, first things first: I enjoyed this movie. To me, it was a solid B (reasons to follow)
I enjoyed the return to Old Movie Magic. I enjoyed the equal mix of CGI and FX and Costumes and Settings and all that jazz. It was good.…
So, if you read my review of BvS: Dawn of Justice, and you follow me on FB and Twitter, you're likely surprised I even saw this movie. Me too. But, it just so happens an opportunity fell into my lap and so I decided to check it out.
No, this isn't at all the JL I'd hoped for, but it's what we got.
First, as I did with BvS I'll jump right in and say IT ISN'T TERRIBLE!!!!!!! (unlike BvS)
Now, let's rate it:
Overall, it's between a 6ish and 7, depending on what
you think are the pros and cons, which we'll get to. (Again, I rated BvS
a 3.5 to 5, so much improvement)
The plot is kinda straight forward and so I won't really much comment, though, the gathering of the team was weak. To be fair, really, the first half of the movie was bad to not very good—it was really simple, worse than childlike in it's reasoning: "Hey guys, lets make a team to save the world" and so, we'll cover each teammate in turn because that took up a…
