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

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.

Movie Review – Wonder Woman 2017

Wonder Woman (2017 film).jpg

Finally, the DC Universe has made an awesome movie. After watching Superman with a meh reaction and an aggravating Batman movie, Wonder Woman was a breath of fresh air and amazing.

Watching her training with her Amazon sisters made me want to find her island and learn how to fight too.

The energy between Wonder Woman/ Diana Prince and Steve Trevor was gripping. And I loved the newness and innocence that the character as Diana brought forth to the world of men.

One thing I didn’t like was a major plot hole of something that happens in this Wonder Woman movie and isn’t explained as the item reappears for her helping Batman and Superman fighting in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Now I’m looking forward to Justice League and there are rumors of a Wonder Woman sequel.

My rating 4.8 stars out of 5

Fan Art Tuesdays – Favorite Comic Book Character Part 1

images63B2M91JThis Fan Art Tuesday is in Two Parts: one today, Nov. skipping Thanksgiving week, and resuming Tuesday December 1st.

Who was your favorite comic book character when you were growing up? Mine were limited. We had DC Comics, but not X-Men (though I loved X-Men when I first saw the cartoon). My parents never took me to a comic bookstore, so whatever was at the grocery or drug store were the comics I knew.

Aside from Raven (which was last week’s Fan Art display) and I didn’t know about her until my teens. Two women battled to be my favorite comic book character.

Obviously, as a child and having dark hair, I couldn’t play SuperGirl or even BatGirl. Only here left, was Wonder Woman. Though I thought it was cool that she was also an Amazon 🙂

How about you? Who was your favorite comic book hero/heroine growing up?

Question for all the Wonder Woman fans: The New Justice League has Wonder Woman flying. Agree or Disagree?

I disagree: Wonder Woman could never fly before – why now? She has a jet (invisible) to fly. Does Superman have a jet or plane? No. Why? Because he can fly. Does Batman have a jet/plane? Yes. Why? Because he can’t fly. So my calculations: Jet/Plane = can’t fly without one

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.
