Is Justice League Yet Another DC Flop?

Thor: Ragnarok has already come out and taken the superhero world by storm and tomorrow DC will be debuting its second movie of the year, Justice League, but critics have already started telling their opinions of the next Avengers-style flick and the feedback is simply brutal.

Entertainment Weekly gave Justice League a C+,  uh-oh! Vanity Fair basically said the movie was pretty awful and a waste of time, and another magazine out of the UK gave the movie 1 out of 5 stars! Ouch. So why is DC still not getting the formula right? I can tell you why: It’s because they’re trying to make their movies based off of the Marvel’s formula.

DC and Marvel are two completely different beasts. Marvel’s heroes are way more down to Earth and relatable while DC’s heroes are literally SUPER heroes. You’ve got a goddess, that’s Wonder Woman, a nearly invincible Kryptonian, Superman, an underwater breathing lord of the sea, Aquaman, and I could go on and on and on but the point I’m trying to make is this: DC heroes are epic which means their movies SHOULD be epic, like The Dark Knight trilogy. You can’t make a DC movie like Marvel because the superheroes are just totally different. If you try to fashion DC’s incredible goliaths after characters that aren’t nearly as powerful then you end up with countless flops?

It’s Only One Month Until The Last Jedi!

It is literally November 15! Yes everyone, the time has come. We are finally in the last month until The Last Jedi premieres and I am as ecstatic as I could possibly be. Since December 18 way back in 2015 I have been waiting for this movie. Rogue One was the intermission film, and it was very, very enjoyable, but this is the movie that I couldn’t wait to see. I remember back in January of this year when I found out this film was going to be called The Last Jedi I totally lost it. That was an exciting milestone. Then in April the first teaser debuted and once again I went a little bonkers for about a month or so. Then a month ago the official trailer debuted during Monday Night Football and it’s been a fabulous ride ever since.

Now it’s a month until the highly anticipated day and I just can’t believe it. Time moves so fast. It feels like yesterday when I was waiting for this day to come and now it’s here. So to celebrate this incredible milestone a special IMAX poster appeared on starwars.com  and I am glad to show it to you. Here it is:

This is a simply gorgeous poster. I love the red and white, I love how Rey’s cloak is bathed in that intense red, I love that they put that gleam on Phasma’s suit because, yes, she is that shiny. I mean, it’s just a really, really good poster. Can I get any more excited?

Well, this is my post celebrating the one month mark. I thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day.
