Review: Justice League

Posted by: |

Review: Justice League

DC Comics fans have waited many years to see this finally happen: there is a Justice League movie. The fifth film set in the DC Movie’verse, following: Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Suicide Squad and Wonder Woman. All, except Wonder Woman, were met with mild applause and endless geek debate over the quality and treatment of such beloved characters. Justice League is the result of years of waiting and plagued with massive script issues, filming setbacks, a director change, and a costly fifty percent reshoot. But the filmmakers pushed on and fought against an onslaught of negativity and problems. Glad to say, after all is said and done, Justice League is a very enjoyable movie: bright, fun, filled with heart, humor and hope. If you don’t look too close, that is.

Review: It Devours! – A Welcome To Night Vale Novel

Being great big fans, as we are, of the Welcome To Night Vale podcast, it was tough to decide which one of us would write the review for their latest book, It Devours. Rock Paper Scissors and flipping a coin didn’t work (why? It’s tough to explain. Hey look over there…) so we decided we’d both review it in the format of an instant messenger conversation (Hey, it worked for our review of Norse Mythology.)

Click the jump for a spoiler-filled discussion about the coolest parts of the book, sections that may or may not have been shout-outs, and a mild disagreement about the book’s treatment of religion.

Review: Murder on the Orient Express

Review: Murder on the Orient Express

Hercule Poirot is back on the big screen with this newest version of one of one the greatest mystery novels of our time: Murder on the Orient Express, based on Agatha Christie’s 1934 novel of the same name. Directed and staring Kenneth Branagh as the world’s greatest detective, Poirot, the film is the fourth adaptation of Christie’s novel, following 1974 film, a 2001 TV film and a 2010 episode of Agatha Christie’s Poirot. What could have been just another remake ends up being a new and fresh adaptation of the old story, adding new themes and elements while staying with the core tone that makes this one of the greatest mysteries ever.

Review – “Brigsby Bear” and “Wind River”

This week guest reviewer TheNoShitMovieCritic takes a look a two movies you may have missed this summer, featuring Mark Hamil in Brigsby Bear, and Jeremy Renner and Elizabeth Olsen in Wind River.

Brigsby Bear

I’m going to dig really deep here to hand this PG comedy-drama a 5 star 8/10 rating. The general public may see this one less, but I think it is a keeper.

Binary System Podcast #103 – Blair Witch 2016 and WTNV #117 recap

This week we’re throwing the format out the window! That’s right, instead of recapping Welcome to Night Vale and then talking about a movie, we’re talking about a movie first! Then the recap! Madness! Total chaos!

Ahem. Anyway. Listen in as we look at the 2016 Blair Witch sequel (which isn’t nearly as bad as you think) and then recap Welcome To Night Vale #116 “eGemony, Part 1: Canadian Club.” Which absolutely does not star Hugh Jackman.
