Movie Review: ‘Justice League’

November 21, 2017 at 9:53 am | Posted in Movies, Reviews | Leave a comment

Fair warning: I’m going to get a bit negative with this review and I am going to delve into spoilers.

Justice League has firmly established DC’s place as a second rate super hero film universe. The movie is not anywhere near the level of craftsmanship from today’s Marvel movies. Guardians of the Galaxy 2, Spider-man Homecoming, and Thor: Ragnarok are all vastly superior films. Sadly, DC is stuck two decades in the past with another mediocre super hero movie. It’s a shame as I really am a DC comic fan. Batman and Superman are great characters. The Wonder Woman film was pretty good. So what went wrong with this one?

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

8 For VIII: Episode VIII covers Kylo and redemption, Rey falling to the dark side, directions Rian Johnson can go and other speculation.

Podcast Network: Star Wars CommonwealthRuntime: 14 minutes, Rating: Good

Blast Points Podcast: Episode 95 is an older episode, but I’ve finally finished From A Certain Point of View so I came back to it. They start out with news (The Last Jedi and trailer observations), then they go through every story in From A Certain Point of View with a summary and a rating. It’s not super spoilery, but it’s a little spoilery so I’d recommend checking it out after you’ve read the book. The discussion will probably resonate with you more if you read the book first. Great episode.

Podcast Network: N/A, Runtime: 1 hour 7 minutes, Rating: Great

DorkLair: Episode #13 starts with a little bit of discussion about the Praetorian guards and what their role in The Last Jedi might be. Then they review the S.H. Figuarts figure pack of the First Order Executioner, Resistance BB droid 2BB-2 and the Praetorian Guard. They cover the pros and cons of each, and this one in particular would be worth checking out before buying the figures as there are some issues with them.
