Justice League Movie Review – The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

It’s finally here, the culmination of the DCEU, the first time Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, The Flash, Cyborg and (surprise) Superman unite on the big screen.
There are a huge amount of reviews out for Justice League already (and lets be fair it’s having a mixed reception), so rather than blog a standard movie review I’ve decided to write about my thoughts in sections - what’s good, what’s bad and what’s “damn-right” ugly. Here I go...

The Fundamental Problem With Man Of Steel

On the lead up to Justice League I’ve been re-watching the previous DCEU (DC Extended Universe) movies, and of course the film which started it all was Man of Steel.

I’ve always enjoyed Man of Steel, I genuinely like the core concept of what if Superman was introduced to the real world. I do like the more serious tone and the insane action spectacle that fills the final act. However, I’ve always had issues with the first hour (see my original Man of Steel movie review), it’s never flowed right for me nor did I feel like I really engaged with Clark Kent / Superman. After watching it again a few nights ago, I think I’ve realised what its core problem is and how it could be fixed.

Wonder Woman Is Not The Best Superhero Movie Of All Time

Don’t get me wrong, I love Wonder Woman. It’s a great film, it’s easily the best film in the DCEU at this point, so please don’t take this MoviePush blogpost to be “hating” on Wonder Woman. I’m definitely not.

But I do take issue with Rotten Tomatoes ranking it as “The Best Superhero Movie Of All Time” in their recent listing of the best 50 superhero movies, and here’s why…

Why I’m Not Watching The Justice League Movie Clips

It’s less than 2 weeks until the release of Justice League, the latest Warner Bros films in the DCEU following this summer’s Wonder Woman.
As we get closer to the movies release, more and more promotional material is finding its way on to the internet. Although we’ve already had a large chunk of marketing for Justice League in the form of movie trailers and movie posters, we’re now at the stage where Warner Bros are releasing movie clips and promotional scenes from the movie, they've just released seven!

I won’t be watching them and this MoviePush blogpost explains why.
