The DC Extended Universe strikes back again with one of the most highly anticipated movies of the year “Justice League”, only to be struck down by critics. Everyone was anticipating the early screening reactions from many viewers. People re-tweeted and scouted all over the internet to see what people were thinking of the film. Many of the reviews seemed pretty good in terms of what we saw last year from the critics with Batman v Superman. To me, a lot of the early reactions seemed all the same. Even though they can never fully go in depth, I still felt no one fully had a good grasp on what they were feeling towards the film. Only about 2 really felt honest. But the early screen reactions weren’t the problem, it was the critics who seem to always bash the DC Extended Universe and we have to wonder why this is. If you come right out and blame Zack Snyder you should turn right around and keep moving.

Just Recently I had the opportunity to check out one of the most anticipated DC Universe Animated movie this year, Justice League Dark. Now I do not know much about the branch of the Dark arts section of Justice except for two characters such as John Constantine, still mad they cancelled the tv show, but also Zatanna, and also I have seen Etrigan off and on. Now many of us we were hit with a trailer for this movie during comic-con which had the internet and all the comic book fans buzzing. This movie definitely got me excited because the trailer right off the bat shows you, the Justice League is not going to be apart of this mission, that it will take other Justice League operatives and people with special abilities to take on this task,will show you the trailer, and we will get back to this.
This movie does have an R rating, but there is no need for it except for a few adult jokes, and maybe more blood then usual, but I would like to say I do enjoy that Comic book movies more and more are getting that R rated feel, you can tell it lets the creators branch out a little more and even give each character more dialogue to work with. Before going into this I was already going in knowing I wouldn’t see as many regular justice league characters, but this movie will surprise you, but in a good way.

So I know this post is super super late, but I finally got to watch “Batman: The Killing Joke” the other night, and I would just like to give some feedback on what I thought of it. Now I know everyone probably by now has seen the movie and has their own opinion, but I felt I needed to say how I felt. I’ll even throw in some spoilers, even though people have probably read every review possible on this movie, and what every other person thought of it, even myself included while you’re reading this. When we look back, this movie was honestly one of the most anticipated animated movies in a long time. Everyone from the regular graphic novel Killing Joke lovers, to the people who have been keeping an a close ear to the forums anticipated this to be something special. Finding out this film was going to be an R rated animated movie, everyone thought maybe we’ll see more or hear more cuss words and see a lot blood and violence. Or maybe even Joker will be more violent then usual , almost like we’ll see the true nature of the joker.
Now when this trailer hit airwaves, everyone was like ok this is gonna be amazing, this is gonna be dope, just seeing this famous battle between Batman and Joker, even though we’ve seen it a million times, we still love to come back for more. I know when I was this trailer I was like ok this is really great; an animated film for a comic I’ve always heard about, never read, but every time I went to a comic book store or just looked at the Batman comics I would see the Killing Joke cover, and say to myself that’s a really dope cover. Never knowing why I didn’t really read it, I might have skimmed through it or because it had the plastic cover on it I just didn’t touch it, you know how some stores do. But besides that; I just thought this is a great year for this movie to come out with Suicide squad coming around the same time, DC is making a lot of moves, then the reviews came in.

As of late, comic books in general have sky-rocketed and are back in business. Now for many who have always read comic books or graphic novels this isn’t anything new, but for the new readers and old readers, like myself, who’ve read comic books growing up (but kind of stopped) this is huge. I just want to talk about my experience while reading the new D.C. Rebirth Comics. I have always loved comic books growing up, but I kind of strayed away, not because they were for kids or anything, but it’s almost like now a days it’s hard to find a straight up comic book store, where you can spend hours and hours reading, unless you live in an area that is known for having that outlet. But I have always kept my ear to the comic book world, from watching movies, and going to places like midtown comics, Barnes and noble, and Newbury comics while just browsing and checking out the new comics that are out, or what everyone is reading.
But for some reason , everyone is reading graphic novels again, from old to even people who have never picked up a comic book in their life. Even though this is a D.C. piece we cannot over look the success of comic books like Moon Girl, and the popularity she is getting and how she has also been crowned the smartest person in the Marvel Universe. And we can’t forget the most anticipated comic book in years, The Black Panther series, which is one of the top purchased series sold-out all over in the first few weeks of release. We have to ask why are so many people reading comics now? Is it because of all the Superhero movies that have hit the big screen? Is it because Fanboys are ridiculing movie goers that they know nothing like Jon Snow, and should read the series before they talk? Or has everyone kind of finally come out of their hiding place to show the world they’ve loved Superheroes from the very beginning.

Whats up all my Riceballers, it’s Stewyp here and I bring to you Gotham Season 2 Rise of the Villains. Now I want to talk to you guys about last weeks episode which was amazing and honestly one of the best well put together episodes from Gotham in my opinion. For all of those who don’t know Gotham is a spin off show of when Bruce Wayne was a young kid before he became batman, now Last season had it’s quirks and many people did not like the first season because they felt it introduced too many villains even though batman(bruce wayne) is only about 13 in this show. The reason why I still am viewing this show was the season finale of last season. The season finale showed the rise and fall of the mob with Falcone and Maroni, and anyone who knows Batman knows the mob is very prevalent in this saga and comic book series, but the season finale also showed Penguins transition and how he became a villain and a top crime boss, and might I add he is one of my favorite characters and one of the best.
