Justice League trailer just came out, and oddly enough looks interesting. 

But you should always keep in mind this infographic

Next time somebody asks you which recent DC film had the better Joker and Harley, bring Wander in to throw in his two cents.

As hate for Snyder and the trailer come in, I will say that I will defend that man til the end. Zach Snyder without a doubt directs the most comic book accurate movies, with a little extra embellishment that is perfect for those that actual read these stories, while entertaining those that don’t. If you need proof of that watch “Watchmen” and follow along with the graphic novel. In my opinion, Zach Snyder is the father of comic book movies and deserves praise for sticking so close to the truest characterization.

Sucker Punch (2011) Movie #2

I’m not gonna lie, I have been searching for this movie for at least a year and it finally reappeared at Walmart, meaning I snatched it up and rewatched it. Sucker Punch is a 2011 “ fantasy, steampunk action film” by Zach Snyder, starring Emily Browning, Abbie Cornish, Jena Malone, Vaness Hudgens, Jamie Chung, Carla Gugino, Oscar Issac, Jon Hamm and Scott Glenn.

The film follows Babydoll, a girl institutionalized by her cruel stepfather, after accidently killing her sister in an attempt to save her from him. After entering the hospital, she falls down an Alice in Wonderland complex, going from her reality (insitution), to a sub-reality (brothel) and finally into a fantasy (action scenes) in an attempt to escape and save other patients/brothel workers: Sweet Pea, Rocket, Blondie and Amber. In order to escape, she needs to find a map, fire, a knife, a key and finally a mystery.

“ The fifth thing is a mystery. It is the reason; it is the goal. It will be a deep sacrifice and a perfect victory. Only you can find it. And if you do, it will set you free”

When I first watched this movie, I saw it as just another generic action movie with an amazing soundtrack. However, it has become one of my top, if not highest underrated movies in my opinion, just because of what happens when you find a new view into this storyline. Of course the critics reviews pretty much called this a terrible movie, but I enjoyed it quite a bit. The reason I enjoyed it was because of a YouTube video that I stumbled across a while ago that. The video will be posted with this.


It explains the movie more in depth and even if Zach Snyder did not intend for the story to be viewed in this way, if you watch this video and then rewatch the movie it is much more enjoyable and becomes a misunderstood masterpiece. 

Outside of the storyline, the acting performances, especially from Emily Browning and Abbie Cornish is outstanding. Emily Browning has been one of my favorite actresses since I first saw Ghost Ship and she does not disappoint when she is on the screen. 

This is one of my favorite action movies and I highly recommend watching this after gaining insight from the YouTube video mentioned above. A perfect film for a rainy day to set the mood of dreary and an all around good watch.

You ever notice how the DCEU Superman and Batman represent everything both Steve AND Tony are opposed to in Civil War?

Steve is opposed to the accords because they ‘shift the blame‘ and remove freedom of choice from the Avengers. Superman’s very first action in BvS is to kill someone, and when confronted about it by his girlfriend, he says ‘I don’t care.’ And when she brings up the other people who died, he says ‘I didn’t kill those men‘. He shifts the blame. Even his dad hallucination is telling him to just not care if his actions bring harm to others. And everyone’s fear of Batman is because he seems to have more say in the justice system than the system itself. They are afraid because they feel he takes away their freedom of choice.

Meanwhile, Tony is for the Accords because he feels that without proper regulation and oversight, he and the rest of the Avengers are ‘no better than the bad guys’. Both Superman and Batman have no regulation, self imposed or otherwise. Batman murders several people throughout the film, some indirectly, some very directly. Yet no one calls him out on it. Not Alfred, not Clark, no one. And Superman starts the movie getting involved in a hostage situation and destroys a government drone, thus disrupting a government operation. The film does somewhat address this when Senator Finch says ‘I’m not saying he shouldn’t act. I’m saying he shouldn’t act unilaterally.‘ But only she brings this up, it’s only about Superman and Superman himself doesn’t acknowledge it beyond an angry scowl.

Did the writers of Civil War get a peak at the BvS script and go ‘OK, let’s make our heroes oppose everything these two stand for?‘ Or did the BvS writers miss the mark so badly that Civil War made a critique on the problematic elements of it’s title characters by chance?!
