We're in the golden age of comic book movies.
We had Thor: Ragnarok two weeks ago (check out my review from two weeks ago, which was my last post, I believe);
And now us motherfuckers got us some Justice League. Doesn't matter if it's DC or Marvel, they're both good and they share equal love (although I must admit, I prefer DC just a little more).

MAJOR WARNING: Long-ass Review. People with short-attention spans will have seizures


JUSTICE LEAGUE (NON-SPOILER) MOVIE REVIEW

PLOT
Before I go into the pros and cons of this movie, the plot is following right after the events of Batman v. Superman: Dawn Of Justice, with Bruce Wayne trying to find his humanity (which is one of the strong aspects of this movie and I will delve into that later in this review) after killing many individuals (specifically criminals) since he saw no humanity in Superman and now that Superman is "gone", he wants to seek his humanity. He foresees an alien invasion coming and rounds up the likes of Diana/Wonder Woman, Arthur Curry/Aquaman, Barry Allen/The Flash, and Victor Stone/Cyborg. An alien known as Steppenwolf is stealing Mother Boxes from all over the universe in Atlantis, Themyscira, and Earth. This brings the League together and they must stop Steppenwolf before he destroys the world. When I put it like this, it sounds like a very mediocre plot right? Well, it fucking is. This feels like the Avengers, except DC. Don't get me wrong, I loved the Avengers. It was good for what it was. I expected this to be different. I mean, Steppenwolf is serving a higher being (Darkseid), just like Loki was serving a higher being (Thanos). There were some elements are were different, but I felt it was too similar. The story is one of my main problems with this movie.
Plot:
5.8/10

ACTION
This movie's action actually blew me away. My only problem has to be that the CGI/green-screen effects were very noticeable and the slow-motion scenes were very overbearing. However, whenever Batman came up to the screen and was facing a criminal or Parademon, I felt so hyped. This Batman is the one I've been wanting ever since the Nolanverse ended. Batman is my favorite DC character and the fact that this movie really shows he is the World's Greatest Detective and Gotham's masked vigilante really pleases me. And the action scenes with the powerful god-like heroes (Aquaman and Wonder Woman) were very well-done. I think the action is on-par, if not, better than the Marvel movies.
Action:
9/10

TONE
A lot of people are complaining about this certain category in the movie. I like the fact that Zack Snyder and Joss Whedon toned this movie down a little after all the criticism that Batman v. Superman: Dawn Of Justice received over a year ago during it's release cycle. The tone was lighter, but some parts were very dark (like the parts with Cyborg and some of the sequences involving Steppenwolf) and some parts were from movies we haven't even seen yet. The tone was very mixed and although I am a huge fan of darker movies, I'm glad they toned this movie down a little bit. And Superman is in this movie (if you think that's a spoiler, you're fucking retarded because he's in all the advertisements for this movie) and the way he comes back is very gold. The tone of this movie was lighter and the Superman character carried that lighter tone with him throughout the movie. He smiles a lot in this movie and during the falling action when he is introduced, he seems more optimistic and this, out of all the three DCEU movies Henry Cavill was in playing Superman, was his best performance yet. This is the Superman I wanted ever since Superman Returns. And the humor in this movie; OH MY GOD. It was funny as hell. Marvel movies have too much humor, but the humor in this movie does not feel out of place and to that extent, DC kicks Marvel's ass in that aspect so hard.
Tone:
8/10

PACING
The pacing in this movie was one of my minor problems as well. They spent 40 minutes setting up all these characters like the Flash, Batman, Wonder Woman, Cyborg, and Aquaman. I really think they should have done solo movies for each of these heroes before jumping the boat to a Justice League film. That 40 minutes felt wasted and although the Flash got a lot explanation/backstory time, Cyborg got none and if this movie was longer (due to Zack Snyder's personal family problems during the production of this film, he and Whedon cut some sequences out, which really pisses me off) like 40 minutes longer, then that 40 minutes would not feel wasted. However by the second act, this movie was amazing. The pacing, by the second act, was outstanding and the cast of the movie really gave their hearts into their roles, which I applaud them all for, especially Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman.
Pacing:
6.7/10

VILLAIN
Steppenwolf is the villain and he was so bland. He felt like a rehash of what Loki was in the Avengers and Loki was outstanding in the MCU. But Steppenwolf has so many cliches and all the villains in the DCEU so far (Ares, Enchantress, Doomsday, Lex Luthor, General Zod, and Steppenwolf); all of them lack character development and a real motivation. Marvel and DC movies both share the same problem; terrible-ass villains.
Villain:
6/10

CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT
This aspect of the movie is where the movie really thrives. I'll start with each of the League members and explain;
The Batman- I feel like in Batman v. Superman, Bruce was a really tortured character and in that movie, you could really tell he has seen some shit; Jason Todd was killed by Harley Quinn and the Joker, Dick Grayson left him to become Nightwing, and you can even tell when he said, "Twenty years in Gotham City; how many good guys are left? How many stayed that way?" (from Batman v. Superman). That quote was gold and after Superman died, this movie really shows that he has changed as a man. Because of his anger towards this god-like figure and the criminals of Gotham, he started killing as Batman (which I use to hate, but now to think about it; I had no problem with it) and now he does not because he knows that Superman was and still is more human than Bruce is. Superman represents what Bruce was when Bruce was a child; a figure of importance and optimism. This movie feels like a redemption-arc for the character of Bruce Wayne and Batman and that is fantastic. I love Ben Affleck more than Christian Bale already. He feels more comic accurate and the way his character is trying to improve himself as not only a person, but as the Caped Crusader, is perfection. Applaud to Affleck. He's my man.
Wonder Woman- her movie this summer was the only DCEU movie I could consider up there with the best superhero movies of all time (with Logan, The Dark Knight, Spider-Man 2, and Captain America: The Winter Soldier). You really see her as a different character from what she was in Wonder Woman. In that movie, you see her as an inexperienced Amazonian princess/warrior. About a 100 years after the events of Wonder Woman, she's more experienced and her motivation is well known (just like in the comics; to save mankind). She's obviously still not over the death of Steve Trevor and that plays into her relationship dynamics with Bruce; they both trust each other. There is one argument scene where Bruce pushes the envelope with Diana's past love and that scene was outstanding and believable. Way better than anything Marvel has done so far.
Cyborg- he did not get so much character development, like I said before. He was an intellectual football player in college (just like +The Punisher lmao), who after an experiment in STAR Labs, witnessed an explosion and lost his limbs. Silas Stone, his father, repairs him, but turns him into a half-man, half-machine. That was pulled STRAIGHT from the comics, which I applaud Snyder for doing his homework on comics for. I will say this; you can see that Cyborg is a newcomer to the hero business. He is still very inexperienced and thinks he is a monster after that accident at STAR Labs. Ray Fisher did an outstanding job portraying Victor Stone. I cannot wait for the Cyborg solo outing (assuming they will make that at some point in this decade).
The Flash- Barry Allen seems to be portrayed as a younger character than he was in the comics. But his backstory was, as I feel (besides Wonder Woman and Batman, whose characters were already fleshed out in their own movies), the most worked up upon; his father was convicted of murdering his mother (just like in the comics) and he was always trying to prove his father's innocence. His relationship with his father was very outstanding and really fleshed out his character. And as for the whole movie with Barry and the League, he was the youngster of the League. Like in the trailers; he just pushes people and runs away. He never really hurt anyone before. Batman seems to be like a father figure to Barry, which I love. I can't wait for The Flash's solo outing (which is sadly going to be based on Flashpoint Paradox, which is too early).
Aquaman- his character did not get as much backstory outing as I hoped for. But Jason Momoa's performance and portrayal as Curry was outstanding.
And I'm not going to do Superman. I already covered him previously.
Character Development:
8.5/10

THE VERDICT
Overall, this movie is a vast improvement from Batman v. Superman: Dawn Of Justice and maybe even Man Of Steel, which is a movie I think is seriously underrated. I recommend everybody see this if they want entertainment. There are a lot of references in this movie only DC fans like myself will recognize, but the general audience could enjoy it too. This is definitely not in my top 10 superhero movies, but it is good for what it is. It's at least better than Batman v. Superman: Dawn Of Justice and Suicide Squad and that's saying a lot.

SCORE
7.3/10
It's a decent watch. Not as bad as critics portray it to be, but not spectacular either (although there was spectacular elements, but the flaws compete with those elements).

AFTER-CREDITS Scenes
The two after credits scenes in here beats every after credits Marvel has ever done. The first one got me hyped for Superman's future and the second one actually made me ejaculate my pants. A very iconic DC villain is shown at the second one. I won't tell you, goddamnit! I fucking loved it. I'm so excited for what
the DCEU has in store for me.

This is an impressive image.
I hope this becomes a thing one day. Moon Knight is so underrated.

Saw Justice League. Good for the most part. Still prefer Avengers. Will post review later. I'm not in the mood right now cause of personal matters.

Brian Michael Bendis, one of Marvel's best writers, signed a contract for DC Comics to write stories for them. So he's outta Marvel, which kinda sucks, but at least he is going to DC. But guess what;
He just teased that he is doing more last Marvel creation before he leaves on to fulfill his contract with Warner/DC.
What do you guys think of this? Honestly, I'm excited for DC, but not so much for Marvel now.
Also, I'm thinking of changing my username;
Should I change it to John "Green Lantern" Stewart?
Should I change it to Eric "Blade" Brooks?
Should I change it to Luke Cage?
I'd like to hear what y'all think on both.

Guys, I'm actually crying right now. I wake up (I live on the West Coast, so it's currently 9 prior to this post) and I get three texts messages; one from +The Punisher and the other two from my other comic book friends; the mofo Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are going to be in Injustice 2! I laughed my ass off, not because it be bad, it's just I love it. WB really played US! The shadow in the game looked like either John Constantine or Rorscarch were going to be next. Nope, it's TMNT (plus the Atom and Enchantress of course). Their ultimate(s) better be mothafuckin' awesome.
Speaking of Injustice 2, I need to get back to playing that. I've been playing Destiny 2 a lot nowadays.

I've been getting a shitload of criticism from some of y'all on this community for not posting so much anymore and how Kevin/ +Arkham Knight is posting a lot more than me, when it's usually the other way around. News flash, marks; I have college. I'm a sophomore (I thought I was a freshman, but I just found out I'm a sophomore), I have a girlfriend, I have a part-time job, and my classes are really difficult. I've been insomniac. Give me a break. I'm trying.
Anyways, in honor of Thor: Ragnarok being the latest MCU movie (Check out +Arkham Knight's review on it just four days ago. It's awesome, but it's long because he's a really good movie critic), it's the 17th MCU film. I wanna know what you guys think of the MCU so far. Rate the 17 movies from worst to best (i.e. #17 being the worst, #1 being the best). Or if you're too lazy, then just name off your top 5. I'll list them for you;
Iron Man
The Incredible Hulk
Iron Man 2
Thor
Captain America: The First Avenger
The Avengers
Iron Man 3
Thor: The Dark World
Guardians Of The Galaxy
Captain America: The Winter Soldier
The Avengers: Age Of Ultron
Ant-Man
Captain America: Civil War
Doctor Strange
Guardians Of The Galaxy: Vol. 2
Spider-Man: Homecoming
Thor: Ragnarok
(with Black Panther, The Avengers: Infinity War, Captain Marvel, Ant-Man & The Wasp, and Spider-Man 2 following these in the next 2-3 years)

My list;
17. Thor: The Dark World (5/10)
16. Iron Man 3 (5.3/10)
15. Iron Man 2 (5.8/10)
14. Thor (6/10)- this and the other three movies above are such disgraces...
13. Ant-Man (7/10)
12. Iron Man (7.3/10)
11. The Avengers: Age Of Ultron (7.3/10)
10. The Incredible Hulk (7.4/10)
9. Captain America: The First Avenger (7.5/10)
8. Guardians Of The Galaxy: Vol. 2 (7.6/10)
7. Doctor Strange (7.8/10)
6. The Avengers (8/10)
5. Thor: Ragnarok (8.4/10)
4. Spider-Man: Homecoming (8.7/10)
3. Guardians Of The Galaxy (9/10)
2. Captain America: Civil War (9.1/10)
1. Captain America: The Winter Soldier (100/10)- still the best MCU movie to date. Political thriller, took itself seriously, and the story was phenomenal.
