Batman Vs Superman: Dawn of Justice – Review...

Going into Superman vs. Batman: Dawn of Justice, I had no time for the haters. I wrote off the detractors as people either still upset about Man of Steel or who haven’t seen anything Ben Affleck has been in since Daredevil. As an unapologetic Ben Affleck fan, I was psyched for Batfleck! You can keep your 15 year-old “You were da bomb in Phantoms!” joke. I love Ben Affleck. I love Batman. Get me to this movie. I still remember seeing the trailer for Batman Vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice and being legitimately excited. The commercial made the movie look awesome. But I guess if you show only the 30 most exciting seconds of a movie, you can make the most boring movie look awesome. And that’s just what they did. Batman Vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice commits the most heinous crime that an action movie can commit: It is boring. I’m talking seriously boring. Fall asleep on your couch watching it boring. When I was watching the movie, I turned to a friend and said, “I feel like we’re just watching wheels spin.” He turned back to me and said, “That would mean the wheels were moving.” So much of the movie is expository, and it’s not even interesting exposition. The most disappointing thing is how much potential the movie had to be good. At its core, Batman Vs. Superman can be described as Batman doesn’t think too highly of Superman after the climatic battle in Man of Steel. Lex Luthor uses this to get Superman and Batman to fight each other. But Wonder Woman gets the heroes to unite, because they need to stop a bigger threat down the road in the name of Darkseid. I would pay to see this movie. This is the...

Lego Justice League: Cosmic Clash – Review Mar25

Lego Justice League: Cosmic Clash – Review...

While everyone is working themselves up into a frenzy over how bad a movie Batman Vs Superman: Dawn of Justice may be, a VERY entertaining movie starring Batman and Superman was quietly released on DVD and Blu Ray recently, Lego Justice League: Cosmic Clash. The Superman and Batman rivalry plays a big part in Cosmic Clash. Sure, maybe not so much that they’d name the movie after their rivalry, but it’s mentioned often and clearly drives Batman’s relationship with Superman and the rest of the Justice League. I have to hand it to screenwriter James Krieg, the guy knows his DC superheroes. This shouldn’t be a surprise, as he penned the screenplays for Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox and the previous Lego Justice League movie, Attack of the Legion of Doom. He also wrote episodes of Batman: The Brave and the Bold, Green Lantern: The Animated Series and Beware the Batman. There are a lot of Easter eggs and in-jokes sprinkled throughout this movie that were a nice wink and nod to longtime DC comics fans. My favorite was the incorporation of Batman’s outfits from Grant Morrison’s time-travel epic, Batman: The Return of Bruce Wayne. Can we please get a Lego minifig of Caveman Batman?! The movie does come with an exclusive Lego minifig of Cosmic Boy. Spoiler alert: The Legion of Superheroes are in this time-spanning adventure. The Cosmic Boy minifig is done right, even including Lego pieces representing his magnetic powers. While it was cool to get a Cosmic Boy minifig, I really wish that the minifig was one of Batman’s time-traveling guises. Again, can we please have a Caveman Batman minifig?! Lex Luthor and the Legion of Doom don’t make it into this movie. The bad guys are Brainiac and to a lesser extent,...
