‘The Birth of a Perished Vision’ – Zack Snyder’s Justice League

What a wild and unpredictable time we live in. No two days are the same. Never for one minute consider classifying anything as “normal”. Such a term doesn’t even really exist anymore. Modern society is fluid, ever changing and untethered by the rules of yesterday. We live in an age of uncertainty, one in whichContinue reading “‘The Birth of a Perished Vision’ – Zack Snyder’s Justice League”

‘Sympathy for the Devil’ – The Suicide Squad

The Suicide Squad (2021) is pretty much what you’d expect a Suicide Squad movie directed by James Gunn to be like. What I mean is, it’s fairly ruddy decent. A brass-necked, uncensored, somewhat sentimental and occasionally contemplative tale about a villainous batch of twisted misfits unwillingly taking on the role of superhero for the day.Continue reading “‘Sympathy for the Devil’ – The Suicide Squad”

‘Diaries of the Wild and Free’ – Birds of Prey: And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn

It’s like obtaining the ability to peak into an alternative realm; as though you’re watching a piece of work broadcast from a parallel reality where Suicide Squad (2016) received numerous more rewrites before reaching the production phase. Be it the style, tone, story, orContinue reading “‘Diaries of the Wild and Free’ – Birds of Prey: And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn”

Bringing down DC – Teen Titans Goes to the Movies

Based on the Cartoon Network television series Teen Titans Go! (2013-present), Teen Titans Go To the Movies follows Robin, Cyborg, Beast Boy, Raven and Starfire as they embark on a quest to get Robin his own movie. I’d love to elaborate, however my previous sentence pretty much sums up the film’s plot in its entirety.Continue reading “Bringing down DC – Teen Titans Goes to the Movies”

Anticlimactic Affairs – Justice League

DC had a pretty satisfactory summer this year. No less than twelve months since the abysmal Suicide Squad (2016) hit theatres, director Patty Jenkins gave us the wonderfully realised Wonder Woman (2017). Finally, after several false starts attempting to kick start this extended universe, we received a story packed with engaging character arcs and charmingContinue reading “Anticlimactic Affairs – Justice League”
