Justice League: Critics Should be Thrown in the Speed Force

DFWih8yXcAM_5g8

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.

DC’s Come Up: Who’s Going to Save The Universe

These last few weeks have been big for the DC Universe, you had Arrow, The Flash, and Super girl all have there season finales, and Gotham having its season finale this week. But we can not forget this past week The Wonder Woman finally hit theaters, and has been a big hit far and wide all over. Diana aka Wonder Woman has been on everyone’s social media feeds, all over TV and just think about it, this movie barely got any marketing until these last few weeks. You barely saw any Wonder woman posters or TV spots. Then the big controversy of the Women’s only movie screening for this movie that had many men screaming in annoying agony of the screening.  I not only want to share my thoughts on the movie after seeing it Thursday night before the worldwide premiere, but I also want to share my thoughts on Arrow, The Flash and Super girl how there season finales will change the course of the new seasons that are to come.

Before going to see Wonder Woman, everyone questioned whether or not this movie could save the DC cinematic universe, some believed it because they’ve been long term fans of this character, some people like me who loved Wonder Woman in Batman v Superman believed she would do excellent, and there’s other people who still had a big question mark on this movie. For one something happened that we rarely have seen in the past with movie screenings, an all woman screening. After this announcement and hearing men couldn’t even at least sit in the theater, they took to twitter and all social media outlets to voice their opinions. To me I think this was great advertisement not because of the men getting pissed, but the simple fact how many people men and women wanted to see this movie. I mean even for a Thursday night when I went to see the movie I did not expect to see as many men in the theater or even that packed to say the least. I knew going into this movie, I would not see any montages to the old 70’s wonder woman; the theme playing in my head as I bought my ticket… “All The world is waiting for you, and the power you possess” but I knew I was excited for something that was long awaited.

“The Flash” Races Back to Tuesday Night *Spoiler Alert*

Tuesday, Oct. 6th can’t come fast enough! Next week the new season of The Flash airs on The CW, and I’m excited to see what this season has in store!

This past weekend I took some time to catch up on Season 1 and all I can say is, “Wow”. It brought back the same feelings I had after watching Arrow’s first season. DC Entertainment is really doing their thing in the TV space, especially since Marvel’s Superhero takeover in Hollywood overshadows their attempts at live-action films. Here’s hoping Suicide Squad and Batman vs. Superman make the cut.  (They’ll most likely have to meet the same caliber as the Nolan-Batman series, to be honest— and that’s gonna be tough.)

Similarly to Arrow, the best part about The Flash is the characters.  DC Entertainment knows how to put together a compelling cast, all with personality and individual character development. (sidebar: Is it just me, or do they all look fresh out of high school? The bar scenes just seem wrong!) They also have great chemistry on-screen, which makes them a fun-loving team. I couldn’t help but analyze some of them, making comparisons to their comic-book versions. Continue reading ““The Flash” Races Back to Tuesday Night *Spoiler Alert*”
