Can the DC Universe be saved?


If you have known me long enough, I love going to the theater to watch the superhero movies. Lately that has been one sided! Marvel has gotten all my money he last DC movie that got in my pocket was Suicide Squad since then… none of the movie look like they are worth any form of admission to the theater, let alone my time should I rent it. Frankly the DC universe is stale I don’t plan to see another one of those movies again unless its Suicide Squad.

So that means I now have a problem with the DC movies. Yes I am more a Marvel Missus than a DC dame, and that would just be as a movie goer not a comic reader (i’ll read something I find here or there but not enough to call myself a comic book fan) The TV series I’m sure you’ve read I keep telling DC to stick with that! So it’s not the actual brand, its the quality, at one point even I didn’t want to watch Gotham because  I think this is the first season that seems to be exciting, or maybe ‘interesting’ is a better word. More well rounded and as much as I don’t want to like him…Penguin is my favorite! (isn’t Young Bruce or Gordon supposed to be the favorite of the show though?) I think Gotham is the first show where I’ve rooted for the villians. They are so much fun, and honestly I really wish they could get a cameo from someone from the Suicide Squad movie. This is another thing the movies need to learn to do. While yes there are many earths etc and who the heck knows what earth each movie takes place on and so on. But one of the reasons Marvel is better is they can use a cross over cameo with someone from a show into a movie or movie into show. That makes thing more fun.

I know those who have read and continue to read the comics have their problems with this or that in the Marvel movies. no matter what, there is going to be something we always have a problem with.  My problem isn’t the ‘nit picking’ we all do, that of this part was not done right, or the accent is off or was totally lost like with Taylor Kitsch’s Gambit. I love the actor and all but even I was disappointed when he couldn’t keep it going..

My MAIN problem with the DC universe extended or not… is the tone… it’s one thing if in the Batman movies you go for the dark tone, all black costumes or Muted colored costumes (like that Bronze with red and blue bronze looking Wonder woman one) Also I think Zach Snyder  did all the batman movies,and some of the other DC ones as well? Oh man it looks like he did them all. In that case ditch him. He  can only do let’s say the batman side of things. Get different directors to work on each of the separate characters’ movies and someone else for the Justice league movies.

EVERY movie has the same look, I think Man of Steel was the only one that has any color to it. Suicide Squad if Zach wants to do a group

Something tells me this is NOT the Aquaman we shall see. Though I think I’d rather see this than the Black swan thats in the movie

series besides the Batman movies.. then I was happy with the first Suicide Squad and part 2 is the only DC movie I next plan to see in the theater. Did I see Wonder Woman? honey I had the Under roos but with the crappy casting, and the FX I saw (the background matched her costume) NO I wasn’t paying for a wonder woman in a Batman tone world (not to mention starting off as if it was Captain America First Avenger…honey You are NOT Chris Evans nor Sebastian Stan..) Hel anyone having to do anything with that movie is lucky if I were to rent the disk from Netflix (and how much do they get from each rental disk or stream from Netflix?)  Justice league came out 2 days before my birthday (which is November 19), usually that is my tradiation I’ll go see the superhero movie (or Fantasy movie)  that is out then but They’ve got the wrong guy for the flash, not to mention AQUAMAN didn’t have long hair let alone Brown hair! Oh and let’s not forget Aquaman was colorful. He had orange and Green for his costume. now I know that would be horrible in the movies but why not change it to something blue (or teal)  on his legs and a yellow shirt? (he could be a male dory instead of looking like a freaking eel or shark) as that costume looks straight black in the trailers.Frankly I think I would have preferred the costume to be that hokey green and orange (see my casting choices for one of the Smallville versions of the Aquaman costume and the ‘real’ aquaman!

 

 

Marvel has different tones to each of their movies, different tones in the lighting  as well as for each of the characters. Captain America first avenger was sort of dark and muted but that’s because of the time it was set in (which I can kind o f understand for Wonder woman but it just looked like a rip off of the first Avenger plot. Winter soldier which considering the subtitle didn’t have much of him in it and as Sebastian Stan aka the Winter soldier joked, “I had like what, one line to speak in it?”  That had brighter lighting I guess you could say. While you might say SHIELD being taken over in ‘soldier was darker than the first movie, the cinematography was not. Meanwhile I hear in Spider-man homecoming there was ‘too much’ of iron man and I complained it’s supposed to be THOR Ragnarok NOT HULK ragnarok. I’ve got no problem with the Hulk or other Marvel characters crossing over, but when they have the same or more time than the title character… then I do have a problem.

Another thing is Marvel (Well minus those who did as well as directed the first 2 Thor movies… Let me hit you with MY Mjolnr! (unlike in Thor, Hela spewed me back out of Hel so….she doesn’t have a chance in with me, or destroying my hammer!) And Loki, Thor and Hulk can smash & trash too!Obviously has better writers).  The jokes are varying degrees from ha ha  chuckle  to out right hilarious laughing (sometimes a little too loud)! Yes sometimes there’s a gag that might seem a bit forced but usually still funny even after seeing it a million times in the trailers!  DC needs some help from their writers and a few comedians like Dennis Leary, Jeff Dunham, Foxworthy and a variety of others. No matter what, the jokes are just not funny. I get dark humor, dry humor,  sarcasm, morbid even and usually everything in between. I’m the one who gets the jokes in the vampire movies that  no one else does. Their Jokes just come off flat and when they do hit,  maybe just muster a ha and then its no longer funny like the one with Batman where (Flash?) asks him what’s his superpower and batfleck says he’s rich.

Watch all the DC movies (currently under Snyder or most of them).

Man of Steel.. ruined by WAY of too many trailers. I didn’t even need to buy a ticket, I saw the whole first half of the movie in the trailers. I was also quite surprised at the end as everyone else was with him ‘killing’.   Then there was what was supposed to be the sequel  to man of steel (or so seemed to be)  Superman vs Batman… Honestly it seemed more like a Batman movie with the tone, and cinematography then it did a superman one. Not to mention WHY (spoiler alert) would you kill Superman in what is his 2nd movie? Not a 3rd or 5th? Or even in a another characters.

Suicide Squad while not perfect, this is the series I’d say made for Zach. The tone of the film etc is suited to the types of  characters in the movie. Please DC take his ass out of the rest of the DC universe. That is one way you can make the movies better. He’s a ‘one hit wonder’ in he way every movie has the same bells and whistles of tick this off the outline and here’s that trick covered.

Sadly it’s too late now but you should have used the actors from the TV series, either that or at least if there’s a cameo of a character in a movie, use them that way.  looking at the actors, aside from Cyborg they are all wrong!

 

There are a lot of things that needs to be fixed in DC. I’d say a major upheaval.

Sadly with the actors already set that is one that cannot be fixed. (At least try to get bale back for real!)  Batfleck  sounds like he’s trying to be Bale as well as  phoning it in. We certainly need a new batman.. but who else auditioned or was looked at to replace Bale? I’d love to see the list for the other characters as well. Basically the actors for the characters are fully interchangeable why not have gotten someone unknown to play the flash? Especially being his movie wouldn’t be out before Justice League. maybe an even number of known actors and newbies. if this was years ago I would have said to make Angelina Jolie Wonder Woman but sadly I don’t think she could hold a candle to Linda Carter Either.

For Batman I see jake Gyllenhall may replace Benny boy, I’m not sure about that but even if we have do Batman films with an ever revolving door of actors as batman (ahem like Marvel’s hulk) til finding the right one, that’s fine for me! If David Boreanez wasn’t already in Seal Team I’d say he could be a good choice for Batman! Superman I’m happy with Henry Cavill but I heard about Matt Bomber & Paul Walker almost being cast as Superman.  Where should Joe Maginello go? Aquaman I nominate Alex or younger bro Bill Skarsgard (but mostly Alex) or how about (to me) ‘The Real aquaman’ Alan Ritchson from Smallville. To me he looks like someone grabbed the character right out of the comic book. Though I remember him more often with just shirtless with  green board shorts.

 

Other ideas for actors for various characters Colin O’Donoghue for superman or batman?Zach Efron for Aquaman even Joe Manganiello for Batman (or some other upcoming character) How about Ryan Phillippe? Nah..I’d rather him as a Marvel character just not sure who. Ben robson, Ihe would have made a better long brown haired Aquaman after seeing his surfing scenes on Animal Kingdom. And being as The Rock oh sorry he’s supposed to be a serious actor now… Dwayne Johnson is listed as Black Adam (WTF?) on IMDB’s Suicide Squad 2 cast, how about say Roman Reigns, Finn Balor, I know Dean Ambrose was in one of the 12 rounds movies. How about one if not both of the Hardy Boyz?

The day after writing this up I noticed my current issue (#1492 December 1st 2017)   of Entertainment weekly had their own 4 point version on how to fix the DC Universe. Without going into serious details (and retyping their whole article) they are…

  1. Sign Gal Gadot and Patty Jenkins for a three picture deal
  2. Erase  Continuity
  3. Find the Next Christopher Nolan
  4. Let henry Cavill  have some fun

My comments to these, I think I already covered the first with the casting… as for the Wonder woman director… wait it wasn’t Zach Snyder who directed it?!?!?!? Could have fooled me with the trailers…

Erasing  continuity ..with the Flashpoint movie the DC universe could in a sense erase their crappy movie past they also mention to lose Batfleck hot Topic Joker (which I disagree with… And to Keep Gadot and Margot Robbie’s Harley Queen Oh yeah and the obscurous Flash Ezra

On point three I already covered that Get rid of Snyder! or at least just give him one part of the universe!

Let Superman have some fun! first off what the Hel is a mother box? Is that the DC version of the tesseract? How about introducing some red kryptonite and have Superman go batboy? Silver kryptonite for a bad acid trip or maybe some  “periwinkle” so he can lose his inhibitions or even more fun… how about some rainbow kryptonite? maybe a mix of the 3 mentioned?

Hopefully we get our wish and they seal the Bat cave without Ben in it, get new writers (which EW forgot to mention) and a better director with more than one vision (unlike every movie he’s done previous)

 

Movie babble’s DC’s X-universe can still work  Here they have listed past, upcoming movies with dates and projects without.

The Autopsy of Jane Doe


 

Starring Emile Hirsch & Brian Cox

This was a cool horror mystery. Just don’t watch if you are squeamish, after all they are performing an autopsy.

This autopsy reveals a treasure chest (all puns intended) of odd items.

While yes for a time that is all it is with a sprinkling of what comes off as accidents and carelessness. The father bossing his son around which seems to make him nervous and have a few more clumsy moments. After a time things become clear, it’s not mistakes or some coincidence (way too many weird things happen) I thought there was someone there, like maybe somehow the person who killed ‘Jane Doe’ followed the body to the morgue and is now trying to ruin the evidence, while somehow having quiet Ninja skills.

There’s a little creepy and maybe a little bit of your hair standing on end.

I oddly liked it and at least there were breaks from seeing the same room the whole movie. (Like Phonebooth where it was Colin Ferrell in a phone booth the WHOLE movie. boring) Also once things got a little freaky I wasn’t sure but I thought I had seen the draws for the bodies all open without the bodies!!!

I shall finish on that note. There’s a bit of a twist that I didn’t see coming which is probably the reason I liked it.

 

The following list has Not only ruins plot twists but the ending as well. Please do not read unless you have already seen the movie or are just not interested in it.

Hunter’s Prayer


2017        R         1:31       Blu-ray       Action/ Thriller / Drama         Sam Worthington

Hunter’s Prayer  Lucas (worthington) is hired to assassinate Ella, after her father and mother are killed. Lucas finds her at her boarding school. So when Lucas can’t pull the trigger (man I just have Wortho’s Terminator Salvation line with Anton Yelchin going through my head now) it puts him on the kill list.

Oh my it starts in Scarsdale, NY! That’s not far from me. The parents at home and for what seems no reason at all are killed, but why kill the daughter too. Honestly I could say something about that, as she should have been killed in front of the parents for whatever the reason but hey I have no idea what the motivation for that was. When Ella sees Lucas she thinks he was hired by her father to watch her. When he can’t pull the trigger he ‘kidnaps’ her to save her from any others out to kill her, and so they are now both hunted.

Talk about a hound from hell! But then again I think Dobermans have been the only dogs that make me nervous. (I blame that on my friend Anna’s little ankle biter or at least when she first got it. Not sure when they are worse when they are little or big, either way I don’t like Doberman’s.

The villain isn’t even a likable one. He’s a rich snobby @$$hole! and he’s a horrible father. Ignores his son and doesn’t even help him with his archery! Very poorly written character, can’t remember what happened to the son but at one point I half expected the son to call the cops on him or something.

So we’ve got a chase, and the usual sort  but oh that was good! The boy I guess came to help his father, but as I said the father should have helped him with the archery cause papa got shot  not sure if it was in the leg or butt but doesn’t matter where, it was funny to me! (Just deserts!)

 

This was bland for an ‘action’ movie.  It starts out ok, but gets tame.

 

 

The Wave


2015  R  1:45  BR   original title  = Bølgen    Action/Drama/Thriller     CAST listing on IMDB

 I like watching Foreign movies, I prefer the subtitles to the English dub as I can hear what the language in that area sounds like. Sometimes I come across something interesting on (dvd) Netflix, or if I can’t find a particular movie I may find it in another language on my Stream Dor app. and on the App there is not always English subtitles if ever. But even if not, you can usually figure out what is going on.

In the village of Geiranger in Norway the mountains will collapse into the Fjord below causing an 80 foot tsunami to head their way. This happened before in 1905 and will happen again not a matter of if, but when.  When it happens, the villages below will only have 10 minutes to get to higher ground. (So get your bug out bags ready, or just move to higher ground now!

Kristian is one of the geologists that work on checking when this will happen, 1 problem he’s moving today. He and the kids are supposed to be getting on the ferry to move while the wife Idun  has another couple of days of work at the hotel. He stops at one point at his old job after having seen (or realizing) something  while waiting in line to get on the ferry. He stops at the old job and reports and checks on stuff or something (sorry I’m going off notes now). There is one of the geologists that if I could blame the tsunami on I would. He just wants to keep looking over some of the stuff. Really you have hundreds or thousands of lives relying on YOU! (He seems to be the head) really I think if that were an asylum I think I’d rather have the patients run the place than him!

I love the daughter, she’s so cute and her relationship with her dad is too sweet. It’s a nice movie to watch with the family if they don’t chew loud, or have to analyze and talk about everything that happens.

I seem to have gotten way too into the movie, as when someone was calling me (around the middle of it) to show me something I ripped their head off! So if that in any way is a sign of a good movie, there ya go!

My dad I think watched it dubbed and I think he even liked it.

Nica having spent 4 years in an asylum for the criminally insane and was made to believe she, NOT Chucky murdered her entire family. WTF! If Chucky’s head is served on a platter How is a new doll also possessed? (Did I miss a movie?)  There’s a part or 2 I got that Nightmare on Elm street feeling though Nightmare 3 was also in a mental health facility.

Oh now its not just a doll but is he possessing people too?  Why would Andy send out another doll that’s evil? Or is it evil?  I don’t know but for a sequel honestly it was just nice to visit an old friend! Er Frenemy? Speaking of which the Halloween Issue of Entertainment Weekly has an ‘Interview’ with Chucky

 

Chucky #1 “It behooves us to watch our step”

Chucky #2  “Behooves, listen to you, You sound like Hannibal Lechter. Can’t Belive they cancled that show”

 

There may be times it was a bit silly and a little Nightmare on Elm street like in parts maybe that’s why I enjoyed it.

I’d say give it a watch, it’s the right time of year for it!

 

Just a note. there’s  was an  UNRated version on the disk

 

 

It comes at night


2017, R 1:31  BR  Joel Edgerton   IMDB

 

So what comes at night? Something tells me this is just their anxiety and fears playing tricks on them.

The netflix sleeve (yes I use DVD) says “A malevolent force terrorizes the world outside’  really I never saw that force, or being.

The characters I find poorly written, sorry Joel I don’t mind you being the star but if this was the movie you were writing, babe you need to evolve on your characters. The wife and son seem to barely talk there seems to be no love between he and the wife. There’s not much to tell about anyone nor do any of them seem to have any personality.

The only personality is the house.

What comes at night,…..is    

 

 

 

apparently is this sickness/disease that I’m guessing is the reason there is hardly anyone around. The movie was interesting in the beginning but as it goes on it loses its momentum. It just becomes a tedious ‘routine’.

I appreciate Joel’s effort and I do love watching Edgerton’s movies acting or written by but after (I think) an hour, (give or take) is when the drop off happened.  The Not quite horror more thriller who’s mystery stunk and went kabo0m…
