‘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

Sitting down to watch Birds of Prey is an interesting experience. 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”

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”

Wonder Woman

When reviewing Suicide Squad (2016) I suggested that despite the DCEU’s problems, there remained plenty of time to make amends. Just because Warner Bros got off to a wobbly start didn’t mean they were doomed to a lifetime of everlasting failure. It was still early days, meaning teething trouble was to be expected. Patty Jenkins’Continue reading “Wonder Woman”

Suicide Squad

When the initial teasers for Suicide Squad (2016) dropped, reactions were pretty positive across the board. Seeing as the overly-earnest crapfest which was Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice was still fresh in the minds of many, a DCU movie coming from an exciting, quirky, colourful and downright funny seemed like a much needed breathContinue reading “Suicide Squad”

Man Of Steel

I’ve always  struggled to properly engage with the works of Zack Snyder. 300 (2006) was, if anything, an over the top, aesthetic-obsessed cartoon of a movie with next to no purpose other than showing off how sexy its visuals were. Watchmen (2009) could’ve been perceived as a step in the right direction, however the depthContinue reading “Man Of Steel”
