Justice League Review

Honestly, I have always preferred DC Comics over Marvel. Marvel makes excellent movies, but DC Comics has superheroes I enjoy reading about. With the failure of Batman vs. Superman, I was worried about how good Justice League would be. Wonder Woman was everything I wanted it to be and more, but that didn’t mean Justice League would be on that level. I am happy to say Justice League didn’t suck, it wasn’t a perfect movie, but it has potential to grow into something better.

Justice League sets the scene in the darkness of Gotham where Batman finds one of Steppenwolf’s parademons. Batman soon realizes that shit is about to go down, so he calls Wonder Woman to help him form the beginnings of the Justice League. Batman recruits the Flash which has been detailed in the movie trailer while Wonder Woman meets with Cyborg. Eventually the League teams up to stop the destruction of the earth and bring Steppenwolf to his knees.

My first positive thought I had was noticing that Superman’s suit is brighter in this movie. It’s refreshing to see Superman becoming more aligned with his comic counterpart. He’s funny and his priority has shifted into saving lives instead of destroying whole buildings like in Man of Steel. The after credit scene with Superman and the Flash racing each other to the Pacific Ocean was lighthearted and helped me appreciate Justice League more. Speaking of the Flash, Ezra Miller didn’t do too bad in the role. When the announcement hit the internet of him being in Justice League, I was skeptical. I love Grant Gustin on the CW TV show and Ezra didn’t seem to be right. Ezra’s portrayal of the character was geeky, goofy and overtly klutzy which worked in the film.

Can we take a minute and talk about that after credit scene? Holy Shit Deathstroke appeared!!!!! He is one of my favorite comic book villains and I wasn’t expecting him to be at the end. It’s a perfect tie in to the solo Batman film.

Ultimately, Justice League is a flawed, but fun film to see on the big screen. Many other internet bloggers and movie critics are slamming Justice League for a variety of reasons. However, I wanted my review to be all positive because I loved Justice League and I’m glad it wasn’t awful.

 

5 Fandom Friday; My Apocalypse Team

5 Fandom Friday

Happy Friday! This week has been chaotic so it’s nice to be able to unwind for a short while. I thought long and hard about this question because you know what else would I be thinking about on a Friday night?

Wolverine

I’m surprised that this is first character I thought of because I’m not too familiar with the X-Men. However, with Wolverine’s adamantium bones, the zombies probably would not be capable of biting into his flesh. With those razor sharp blades, he would be able to fight his way out of any zombie horde that would surround him. So he’s definitely #1 on my list.

Jemma Simmons

This is the first season of¬†Agents of Shield¬†that I’m watching every single episode to. Jemma is hands down one of my favorite characters. She’s incredibly intelligent and she has survived on an unknown planet for weeks. Yes, she had Will, but she’s still resourceful. She would be the scientist our team needs to survive.

Lara Croft

New Lara Croft 2

Lara is an obvious choice because she handles a variety of different weapons in her revamped game. She can use a bow and arrow and could probably use a cross bow. She’s also pretty handy with shotguns and machine guns. She is another front of the line fighter I would need.

Deathstroke

Deathstroke is one of my all time favorite comic book villains. He’s a force to not be reckoned with and his combat skills are superb. He would slice and dice all the zombies all the time. He and Wolverine would probably make a perfect team, but whether they would actually cooperate and work with each other is a different story.

The Flash 

Grant Gustin

Finally, my team needs a true hero. The Flash would be the one to risk his life to go into a zombie horde and save the rest of the team. He’s also fast so he could transport the team away from an angry horde of zombies if need be.
