Wonder Woman

Folks, this movie is just so good. It’s everything a DC movie should be… bright, colorful, inspirational, and true to the characters we’ve been reading for years. We need more of this and less of asshole Superman. Less tattooed Joker and more pure characters.

Teen Titans: The Judas Contract

This is not a bad movie… not in the least bit, but it has been done before and it’s been done better than this. I’m sure that, if you’ve never watched Teen Titans, you’d find this a perfectly fine movie and have none of the qualms that I did, but to me, it’s like watching an imperfect clone of something that was already imperfect.

Power Rangers

It’s an origin story and you all know how much I love superhero origin stories (I don’t). In this case, since it’s a story we haven’t seen properly told before, I gave it a pass for that, but it did fall into the superhero origin trap of holding off on all superhero action until the final act and thus, “Power Rangers” becomes more along of the lines of “Five Teenagers Bonding Featuring a Cameo by the Power Rangers.” It’s so frustrating that these movies do that to us so much.

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.

Movie Reviews

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.
