Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 7/31/21

Welcome to the world of reviewing comics! Not too many reviews this week because I was really only in the mood to pick up comics I was actually interested in reading this week instead of expanding out to others I was meh about. So we’ve got the likes of SWORD and the new Superman: Son of Kal-El.

Comic Book of the Week goes to Beta Ray Bill #5 for a perfect ending to a perfect comic book. This whole adventure was phenomenal and the ending is pretty great.

You’ve never known such fury

Meanwhile, I watched and very much enjoyed Masters of the Universe: Revelation last weekend. People are complaining online, as they are wont to do, but I had a blast. And I am definitely an old school He-Man fan from back in the 80s. And then by this time next week, I’ll have seen The Suicide Squad! So that’s exciting!

Comic Reviews: Beta Ray Bill #5, Static: Season One #2, Superman: Son of Kal-El #1 and S.W.O.R.D. #7.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 7/24/21

We’re in that weird down period again where there are no Marvel projects coming out. We’ve got a week or so still until What If…and that Loki behind-the-scenes episode was good, but it won’t sustain us. What will we do? Read comics, of course! Like Marauders and Nightwing and Power Rangers! This is actually a very DC heavy week!

Comic Book of the Week goes to Superman and The Authority #1 for a very well-polished launch to what will hopefully be a fun little mini-series.

A shiny Fortress of Solitude on a hill

Meanwhile, I’m about finished with Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. I’ve very much enjoyed the game, and I’m tracking down every last shrine, but I have nothing else after it’s gone. Any good games coming out soon? Other than that, I’ve been watching and enjoying Wellington Paranormal, not caring for Tigtone and I binged and enjoyed the new Masters of the Universe: Revelation last night.

Comic Reviews: Marauders #22, Nightwing #82, Power Rangers #9, Superman and The Authority #1 and Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow #2.

Let’s All Rag on the DCEU Some More!

The schadenfreude of DC’s failed cinematic universe will never not be funny. They tried, they took some big swings, they drummed up a lot of controversy, but in the end their epics plans fell flat on their face. Honestly, it’s just really funny.

Isn’t that right, Honest Trailers?

And so good times were had by all. A good chuckle to start our Tuesday. I’m still not entirely convinced that Flash movie is actually going to happen and come out. I think they’re even filming it now. And I do still rather like Aquaman and Shazam. So at least there’s that.

6 Thoughts on Zack Snyder’s Justice League

We are finally living in a post-Snyder Cut world. Zack Snyder’s Justice League has arrived on HBO and we have all experienced it. I sat down with a buddy of mine and marathoned all four hours in one sitting, because that’s how I roll. I saw it just because it’s a thing to see. I am no #releasetheSnyderCut guy. I think Man of Steel is terrible, and I have grown to dislike Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice more and more. So don’t read this expecting some fawning praise for Zack Snyder’s Justice League.

Movie Rating: 7/10 – Good.

I enjoyed the theatrical cut of Justice League well enough, at least upon seeing it in theaters. I haven’t had any interest in that film since. And I have had no desire to see Zack Snyder get another crack at it. I don’t think he’s a good fit for DC superhero movies. I’m not a hater. I very much adore 300 and Watchmen. I just haven’t enjoyed his take on Superman and the gang. And I never cared for the bullies that kicked off the #releasetheSnyderCut movement. I view this actual Snyder Cut as Warner Bros. grasping at straws to have some kind of draw to HBO Max.

But I watched Zack Snyder’s Justice League. I enjoyed it. It’s fine. And now I’m glad it’s behind me. Join me after the jump for my thoughts on the beast of a film. Expect FULL SPOILERS for the movie.

Zack Snyder’s Justice League Comes Out With a Better Trailer Just in Time!

Zack Snyder’s Justice League arrives on HBO Max on Thursday, possibly changing all of time and space in ways we cannot imagine. Will the world ever be the same again? Will Hollywood? Will this movie mark the true end of the pandemic, in place of the vaccine? I guess we’re about to find out!

Behold a new trailer!

What really strikes me is how heavily this trailer features Darkseid. Because we all know that, of the reshoots Zack Snyder was able to do, there’s no way he filmed an entirely new fight scene where any of the Justice League take on Darkseid. We all know that this movie will still just be the Justice League fighting Steppenwolf, possibly the worst decision in superhero movies in the past decade.

But hey, we’ll find out on Thursday. I’m gonna watch this at some point.
