Marvel Vs. DC: A Fan War.

It’s nothing new for the Marvel and DC comics to go head to head against each other. So it’s also no surprise that the battle’s been taken to the big screen. Enter Thor: Ragnarok and Justice League.

Let’s start with Thor, which was a very well done and put together sequel. Did you expect anything less from Marvel though? Top three reason Thor is still a blockbuster hit:

1. This is just one in a line of sequels for many Marvel stories, but what’s important is that it helps set the stage for The Avengers: Infinity War, which comes out May 4, 2018.

2. It’s funny! Marvel has mastered created movies that are both lighthearted and serious which is a great combo for a superhero movie.

3. Chris Hemsworth. If I’m being perfectly honest, a major motivation to go see this movie was to see Thor’s new hair style. I’m a girl. We like these things. Plus Chris Hemsworth is just really nice to look at.

Now Justice League. DC had really good momentum coming off of Wonder Women. So Justice League had to be good, right? I have to say I didn’t totally hate this movie. Top three reason to watch Justice League:

1. All-star cast. Ben Affleck as Batman is literally one of the best casting choices. Throw in Jason Momoa and Ezra Miller and you’ve got a pretty dang good cast on your hands.

2. Action packed to the max. SO. MUCH. ACTION!

3. Let’s be real, you need to see for yourself how DC is measuring up to the Marvel Cineamtic Universe. That’s all the motivation you need to watch Justice League.

So how’s Box Office looking? Well… Thor has been out for a month now., and Justice League is on its second week. During its opening weekend, Justice League definitely stole the show. But now that things have settled down… Thor still remains on top!

Overall DC has been making some decent movies. And maybe in 10 years DC will reach Marvel status greatness! But Marvel  will probably always be dominant over DC. That’s just my opinion though!

“We’ve got a bit of a “save the world” situation here.” – Kingsman: The Golden Circle

I finally got to watch the newest Kingman movieIMG_8447 this week. Not only was it a movie that I was looking forward to seeing, but a movie that was highly anticipated by a lot of people after the success of the first film.

As far as sequels go, they tend to not be as good as the originals. And that’s true for this movie, but only by a little bit. The charm and actions that made you love the first movie are evident in the sequel. It just lacks an equally as interesting story line.

I found myself accurately predicting how the movie would play out. So when the movie ended, I wasn’t surprised. And there were a few scenes where I was confused, mainly because I couldn’t figure out how they were relevant to the furthering the story.

Even so, I really enjoyed the movie, and here’s why:

  • Eggsy is the heart and soul of the movie. He provides comic relief (not that this is a super serious movie) and continues to be that character that you keep cheering for. If he wasn’t a main character in the sequel, I wouldn’t have even considered watching it!
  • Surprises that aren’t really surprises. The trailer gives away a huge plot detail, *cough *cough Harry is not dead, however the way they incorporated him back into the story was not what I had expected, which made me want to keep watching just to see what was gonna happen to him.
  • It’s charming. There’s a ton of action. There’s a bit of crude language, but that’s what makes the movie great. The sequel stays true to the brand it started with the first movie, which in my opinion, makes the movie worth watching!
