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 – “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.

REVIEW: Professor Marston and the Wonder Women

REVIEW: Professor Marston and the Wonder Women

Contains Spoilers.  Contains curse words.  Contains me talking about love is love. 

I am not telling the whole setup of the movie, but will discuss certain scenes.

The movie started and five minutes in I was in love with Elizabeth Marston, played by Rebecca Hall. She is a feminist. She is out of this world smart and unfortunately living in a time that women should “know their place.” She was having none of that. We are introduced to her via her rant about not being accepted to Harvard because, “I don’t have a cock.” Her rant is filled with “fuck” and “unacceptable” and “if I were a man.” Of course the name of the movie starts with “Professor Marston” and he, played by Luke Evans, is the person Elizabeth is ranting to. He too is a feminist and loves her because she is all of the things a typical woman of the times is not.
