bradygirl_12: (trinity (fire))
I just got back from viewing Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice. Spoilers behind the cut.

Let me sharpen my skewer to shish-kebab this steroid-infused side of beef )

Here is my spoiler-free recommendation. I recommend seeing this film in a first-run theater if you:

Don’t want to be spoiled.

Enjoy the historic importance of Superman and Batman meeting for the very first time in a big-screen live-action film.

Enjoy the historic importance of seeing Wonder Woman in a big-screen live-action film for the first time evah!

Enjoy the historic importance of seeing DC’s Trinity all on screen together in a big-screen live-action film for the first time.

Enjoy seeing Batman and Superman beat each other to a pulp like two idiots on the local playground.

If none of the above applies to you, then wait to see this on Netflix, or if your first-run theater has a Bargain Day (I did that today), or the movie ends up at a bargain movie theater in a couple of months.

Letter grade: C+. The ‘+’ is all for Wonder Woman, otherwise this would be C-.

Stars: 3 out of 5. 1 star is all for Wonder Woman, otherwise it would be 2 out of 5.

I guess it’s the squandered potential that gets me, but what can you expect from a man (Zack Snyder) who is inspired by Frank Miller? Miller, the guy who made Batman a psychotic who kidnapped Dick Grayson after his parents' deaths and forced him to sleep in the Cave and eat rats, and later Miller character-assassinated poor Dick in a way that I can’t even wrap my head around.

Miller, who made Superman a spineless Government stooge, Diana a vicious man-hater who called men sperm receptacles, made the rest of the JLA idiots and buffoons, and made Black Canary immediately have sex with the Bat-God upon their first meeting. So I guess we were spared most of that, except for the Bat-God beating up Superman. Boy, I wanted Clark to give Bruce a good shot!

I don’t know how many fanworks will come out of this movie. I’ll bet money that it won’t be on par with the first Avengers movie or Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier.

*puts away skewer for now*

Patrolling his city grounded him, because all too often lately he felt as if he was being run ragged between here and the Watchtower. If it wasn’t monitor duty, it was an intense, time-consuming mission, sometimes off-world, and he barely had time to turn around, much less spend any significant time with Clark. )

Author’s Notes: When I was mowing the lawn today, this story came to me as I was pondering the scans I’d seen of Flashpoint’s Project: Superman. We all know that Clark could have had a very different fate if Jonathan and Martha hadn’t been the ones to find him, and so this story was born. Blame the lawn! ;)
Also, blame the fact that while I was writing this, all kinds of flashbacks and future scenarios kept running through my head, so it’s not going to be a one-shot, after all! The entire series can be found here. *shakes fist at Evil!Muses while smiling*

You disobeyed me. )
bradygirl_12: (clark (wry smile))
Omigoddess! I got the tape today from the wonderful, fabulous [livejournal.com profile] northern_star! Thanks SO MUCH, honey! *hugs you*

I just watched the finale! *squees*

I'll be watching the other four episodes I missed but couldn't wait any more to watch the finale!

"Finale" (Smallville) (Season 10) (Episodes 21/22) (May 13, 2011)

Okay, it wasn’t perfect, but it was pretty darned good! Considering that some other shows have had godawful finales (Quantum Leap, Xena: Warrior Princess, to name a few), this was GOOD!!!

Yes! (Spoilers galore!) )
bradygirl_12: (superman--green arrow (together as heroe)
"Beacon" (Smallville) (Season 10) (Episode 13) (February 11, 2011)

Argh, Lex! I was resigned to your absence from the show and no more hints of Clex, and you drag me back in again!

Spoilers )
bradygirl_12: (bat o'lantern 2)
"Harvest"(Smallville) (Season 10) (Episode 6) (October 29, 2010)

Like Lois said, Children of the Corn!

Strange doings )
bradygirl_12: (superman--lois (witch))
"Isis" (Smallville) (Season 10) (Episode 5) (October 22, 2010)

Man, RL loves kicking me in the butt! So this review is late, and I don't know when I'll get the next one out. As soon as I can! I would rather not run a week behind all season. :)

Isis (Spoilers) )
bradygirl_12: (clark (quintessential))
"Lazarus" (Smallville) (Season 10) (Episode 1) (September 24, 2010)

Review (Spoilers) )
bradygirl_12: (wonder woman (prayer))
Here in the States, the month of May includes Memorial Day, a time to reflect on war and the sacrifices made by those who fight and those left on the homefront.

The End Of All Things explores war and those lost to it, and how those left behind must go on. This is a multiple pairings/characters story told from Diana’s POV.
bradygirl_12: (chloe (evil bride))
"Bride" (Episode 10) (Season 8) (November 20, 2008)

Wow! This episode had so much! And now the CW and WB lets us wait until January 15th for the next one! Wonderful!
