Movie Review: Justice League

Movie Review: Justice League

Justice League film poster.jpgThis film showcases Batman as bringing in the other superheroes and forming the Justice League. By far, this movie outshines Batman vs. Superman. However, in a world with X-men and Marvel movies, it pales.

The cast did a wonderful job, but they had bad writing, plot holes, and an illogical villain.

When the bad guy,  Steppenwolf, shows up he defeats the Amazons easily. Later in the movie, Diana tells the story of how it took the Old Gods, Mankind, both Amazons and Atlantians to imprison him. However, when Steppenwolf returns and this time unites the three boxes of power, he’s no stronger than he was when this round of superheroes fought him. AND the key to his demise is one superhero that seems impossible to beat (unless you’ve got kryptonite)

To me, the movie was too easily ended. The bad guy not so tough and Superman put him down without much effort.

That’s one of the many reasons I like Marvel better than DC movies – their characters show their flaws, their weaknesses. And no one hero is all-amazingly powerful. Really, it’s like an evil six-year-old fighting an all powerful warlord. No suspense.

I did love Gal Gadot as Diana Prince / Wonder Woman. AND enjoyed the comic relief of Ezra Miller as Barry Allen / Flash

My rating 3.8 stars out of 5

Andrea R. Cooper writes fantasy, paranormal,  and historical romance.

Her favorite childhood memories revolved around creating vibrant characters for her friends and then acting out their adventures. Inside her fantasy worlds of darkened forests, dragon-filled glades, and iced islands, nothing was banned. From the ethereal Elvin to the most maligned Vampires, all were welcome in her fictional realities, a stark contrast to her home, where the magical and mythical was forbidden.

Fan Art Tuesday – The Huntress

175px-Huntress_TPBThis week’s Tuesday Fan Art is moved to Monday – Tomorrow, I’m participating in a Blog Hop with 23 other authors – stop by to meet a new author and/or some are hosting giveaways.

Ok, now on to Fan Art:
Continuing on the SuperHero/Villain theme, today I’ve got images of The Huntress.

Don’t know who she is? In DC Comics’ alternate universe, she is the daughter of Batman and Catwoman. I know, right? The Huntress is also associated with the Birds of Prey (but not connected to Mockingbird of DC Comics who became a Huntress as well).

There are tons of pictures of The Huntress on Google Images and I wish I could share them, but none but these are allowed to share.

Have you found / known about a character that wasn’t part of the mainstream comics that you liked?

 

 

Bio Pic 300x400Andrea R. Cooper writes fantasy, paranormal, historical and contemporary romance.

Her favorite childhood memories revolved around creating vibrant characters for her friends, and then acting out their adventures. Inside her fantasy worlds of darkened forests, dragon-filled glades, and iced islands, nothing was banned. From the ethereal Elvin to the most maligned Vampires, all were welcome in her fictional realities, a stark contrast to her home, where the magical and mythical was forbidden.

Divorced and disillusioned of love and believing all the love songs and books exaggerated, she put aside her creativity for life. Many years past before characters, from the familiar to the freshly conceived, came to her again, but this time teasing at a new passion, the written word.

Gradually, her real life hero brought love and magic back into existence. During the time when her characters were getting reacquainted, the love of her life was showing her that true love never gives up and rekindles no matter how many times others attempt to extinguish it. Today, she is happily married with three children.

Andrea believes in the power of change and delighting in each moment. But most fervently, she believes in the magic of love and imagination again.
