Justice League (2017)

STORY – 0
DIRECTOR – 1
ACTOR – 1
MUSIC – 0
CULT – 0

 

Verdict – 2/5

 

 

Pros –
1) DC establishing that Superman is indeed the strongest DC superhero
2) Aquaman playing “Jason Momoa” – rowdy, drunk and foul-mouthed
3) 2 hrs running time – not wasting time in the origin story of Cyborg and Flash.

 

 

Cons –
1) The resurrection of Superman is over-simplified.
2) Steppenwolf – generic run-of-the-mill supervillain trying to destroy the world.
3) DC needs to get rid of Zack Snyder. He’s worn out and got nothing new to offer in this genre.

Verdict – 0/5

Pros –
n/a

Cons –
1) Lacking the fast-paced unpredictable character of its prequel
2) Painful to watch Michael Caine & Morgan Freeman wasting their talent in this garbage.
3) Daniel Radcliffe: 4 scenes? That’s all. Shitty acting anyways.
4) Not unfolding events of the prequel, establishing the prequel as a movie full of potholes.
5) Woody Harrelson: irritating twin version
6) Jesse Eisenberg: 1 Film Wonder: Going south like Shia LaBeouf.
7) Terribly photo-shopped theatrical release poster

Tallahassee: Out west, we hear it’s back east. Back east, they hear it’s out west. It’s all just nonsense. You know, you’re like a penguin on the North Pole who hears the South Pole is really nice this time of the year.
