Justice League Dark

When a magical threat threatens the Earth and the Justice League can’t deal with it… even though they’ve clearly dealt with magical threats before many many times, it’s time for Batman to recruit John Constantine, Zatanna, Deadman, and Jason Blood as a new team called Justice League Dark… even though it was Batman himself who told the Justice League that there was probably no magical threat in the first place.

Doctor Strange

Honky ass crackers aside, Doctor Strange in an immensely enjoyable addition to the MCU. A veritable kaleidoscope of weirdness and confidence shining a spotlight on a little known Marvel superhero and, from someone who knew very little about him until I watched this movie, allow me to say, it’s a pleasure to meet you, Doctor.

Suicide Squad

Suicide Squad has everything that Man of Steel and Batman v Superman has been missing: Fun, thrills, and characters who aren’t complete assholes. Let that sink in… Superman has been a bigger asshole in the DC Movies than Killer Croc, Harley Quinn, and Deadshot. That alone should make Zack Snyder combust in shame.

Batman: The Killing Joke

When it’s good, it’s very good but the problem is, it doesn’t spend a lot of time actually being good. For such an iconic comic book story, this puppy is bungled embarrassingly and dropped right on its head. Someone needs to do an fan edit on this film pronto.

Captain America: Civil War

This isn’t the story of two superheroes being dicks to each other… it’s a story of hard choices, gray areas, and no road home. This is a story of divided loyalties, undying friendship, and problems with no real solutions. Realistically, you can side with either Tony or Steve in this movie… both of them are right, both of them are wrong.

Fantastic Four

It’s a superhero movie, but there’s little to no action in it. Nothing happens and, when it does, it’s in short unsatisfying tidbits that aren’t enough to feed your need. Call me crazy, but I think a primary component in any superhero movie should be… you know… fucking movement.
