Justice League trailer review

Please be good. Please be good. Please be good. Please. Please… So I get done writing my review for the Wonder Woman trailer and I refresh YouTube and see this. And it’s not like I’m going to IGNORE the fucking Justice League!.. The difference is that I’m more excited for Wonder Woman. I’m scared for this. I’m still going to see it, I’m not out of my mind, but I feel like it’s too much too soon. Yes, when Avengers came out it was only four years after Iron man and this is only three years of Man of Steel. However, there were five movies before Avengers that were all very good. Before this there is a shitty Superman movie, a shitty collaboration movie, and 2 that haven’t even been released yet. All I’m saying is there is every right to be VERY concerned about this and how quickly it was rushed… On to the trailer though!  It opens very dark and gritty, which is expected, but, what was unexpected was the tone change to Icky Thump, and that brought a smile to my face!.. We have our glimpse of Aquaman and I am IMPRESSED. Thats not even sarcasm! Throughout this trailer he is just a bad ass and I love it.We then move on to The Flash, who finally addresses the “man sitting in dark introduces himself cliche” and I was sold more… Thats where I stop being impressed though. This trailer starts off strong with Batman recruiting the League for some massive evil that is coming for them, and I rather enjoy that premise. On top of that Batman’s and Wonder Woman’s suits are amazing… Then we spend an entire minute with The Flash and it cuts to the shittiest suits of Flash and Cyborg anyone could ever think up… And then its over… Just over. I know I will probably get flack for this but after the excitement wears of and you re-watch this, its not that good. I expected more from a comic-con trailer, and with Wonder Woman I know DC can deliver it.

 

Smallville TV show review

SOMEBODY SAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAVE ME! Today is a review for Smallville! The 10 year show that aired on CW about the life of Clark Kent, Superman, growing up and gaining his powers! I will admit it, back when I first started watching Smallville many years ago, I didn’t have much interest in superheros. Now, with Marvel and DC (kind of) I’m like every other media fanatic and know so much I’d make your inner comic book nerd weep. Back in 2001 when this show started superhero things didn’t have much of a fan base. There was Superman, 20 years before. And the Batman movies and TV show, one of which was Batman and Robin! Smallville started out in the first few seasons like every other show, with a formula. Every episode there was a bad guy, Clark took him down, sometimes finding a new power he has. At the end of every season he took down a bigger bad guy. Repeat. What kept it going in these days was the nostalgia, the homages, and the amazing character chemistry. Everybody that has seen the show will tell you the same thing… Clark is the perfect Superman, Chloe, Lex, and Lois are awesome and have the best screen time ever, Oliver WAS our Arrow before Arrow, and Lana’s voice is the worst thing ever. Around season four is when it really takes off, the stories get better, arcs get phenomenal, and each season is just an incredibly long, incredibly kick-ass Superman movie. Ever season ups the ante, and every season exceeds your expectations (except 7, damn writers strike). If you like Superhero shit, this show is for you. If you don’t this show is for you.
