‘Teen Titans Go! to the Movies’ Expectedly Brings The Laughs

Even though I’m an adult there are still certain cartoons that I love to watch and one of those cartoons is Teen Titans Go! This cartoon focused on the DC Comic teen heroes consisting of Batman’s infamous sidekick, Robin, the boy with a beastly ability, Beast Boy, the half-robot, half-human hero with a favorite catchphrase (“Booyah!”) Cyborg, the alien princess with powers from another world, Starfire, and the half-demon girl who uses her dark powers for good, Raven. These five get into all sort of laughable mischief and aren’t afraid to make a song or two along the way.

They have become so popular on Cartoon Network in fact that this summer they received their own movie which came out in actual movie theaters worldwide. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to find time to go and watch it when it was in the movie theaters but with it arriving on Digital I was determined. And, I’m glad to say, it was just as fun and hilarious as I expected it to be.

A Slew of ‘Aquaman’ Posters Have Arrived

Aquaman is just over a month away and that means the marketing for the film has begun to ramp up. Just recently a bunch of character posters was released for us to enjoy and of course I want to share them with you all. Here they are.

Aquaman

Okay, I’m trying to be positive about this movie. I really am. I loved the extended trailer. It looks like an awesome movie. But constantly I am struck with things about this film that throw up a red flag…like this poster. Is it just me or does it look awful? I honestly don’t think it was a great idea putting him in the iconic Aquaman suit because it doesn’t fit him very well. And why is his hair looking like that?

Gosh, DC Comics, why can’t you just get it right?

Breaking News: ‘Wonder Woman 1984’ Is Being Pushed to 2020!

The DCEU messiness continues as Wonder Woman 1984 has gotten pushed from premiering next year in November all the way until June of 2020. That. Is. BONKERS! That’s like an announcement arriving that Spider-Man: Homecoming (which is set to come out next July) would be moved all the way until May of 2020. Wouldn’t that be shocking?

This breaking news proves that The DC Extended Universe is still facing some major problems internally for a shocking twist like this.

So, for all of you who were excitedly waiting to see this Wonder Woman sequel next year (like me), we must wait another year before we get any tantalizing tidbits on the film.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day.

‘Suicide Squad’ Could’ve Been the DCEU Version of ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’

After waiting and waiting for Suicide Squad to come to cable television (because I didn’t want to rent it) I finally got to see it yesterday and, for the most part, I mildly enjoyed it. I liked every character, which usually is a good sign of a movie’s quality. Will Smith’s Deadshot was easily my favorite member of the criminal superhero group with Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn sitting at a close second. But ultimately what killed my movie experience was the lackluster storytelling.

With the perfect writers, this could’ve been an ultimate success in the same way that Guardians of the Galaxy was because both films are ridiculously similar. Both movies follow the stories of a group of misfits who have to come together to save the world. Suicide Squad even tried to add popular songs throughout the film in the same way that Guardians of the Galaxy but it didn’t work. And honestly, it’s a shame.

While this film had so many chances to be the best movie in the DCEU franchise it was way too predictable, the story was junkily crafted, and the villain, crafted in the same terrible CGI fashion as Steppenwolf, was not at all enticing.

Um, ‘Aquaman’ Is Going To Be Awesome!

Aquaman released a teaser trailer a few months ago and while I did enjoy it to some degree it didn’t exactly entice me to watch it as much as I would’ve hoped. Well, yesterday an extended video for Aquaman came out and so, naturally, I had to check it out. Here it is.

Usually when a movie releases a five-minute! trailer that’s bad news but I have to say, for once, this was one of the smartest decisions I’ve ever seen a movie production do. Warner Bros. knew that people weren’t overwhelmingly excited to see this movie so they decided to show us what this film truly has to offer and I am beyond impressed.

This is honestly the first time I’ve watched one of the DCEU films with as much joy as I watched this trailer. It almost felt like I was watching one of Marvel’s movies as it displayed some fantastic action, lovable characters, and some legitimately good humor. Up to this point I didn’t know how I felt about Aquaman. He looked cool, seemed cool, but he wasn’t able to shine in Justice League. Well, in this movie, he’s clearly going to shine and I. Can’t. WAIT! To see this film!

Aquaman just may be the best movie in the DCEU so far with its incredible directorial vision, awesome looking action, and the sheer concept of Atlantis. I honestly couldn’t be more excited.

What do you think of this extended trailer? I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day.

How Does The ‘Captain Marvel’ Teaser Compare to the ‘Wonder Woman’ Teaser?

The teaser for Captain Marvel came out last Tuesday, shocking the internet and making a whole bunch of Marvel fans super excited to see the highly-anticipated arrival of one of Marvel’s most powerful heroes. But, as I’ve grown to love the teaser more and more I can’t help but wonder what the Wonder Woman teaser was like when it first came out. So, I decided to share with you all a post comparing the two highly-anticipated trailers and discover which one is better. Enjoy!
