To celebrate the opening of the Wonder Woman movie, here are some classic stories:

Jewels In The Crown II: Heritage deals with Diana’s restlessness on Paradise Island and her mother’s wise counsel about her heritage.

Eve Of Battle: the Trinity before the battle is met.

By-The-Sea III: Angel, Baby follows Diana and Steve during a retro weekend of fun. :)

Help!

Argh, once again I come hat in hand. My userpics package will expire by the 21st. With medical expenses, my rent being raised, and tire repairs, I have nothing left for this renewal. I'd like to enjoy fun icons like the one on this entry (it always makes me giggle), and add a few for the Wonder Woman movie soon.

If anyone could help me out, I would be most grateful. Thank you, and Happy St. Patrick's Day! :)

Argh, word is that the Wonder Woman movie is as bad as BvS (http://movieweb.com/wonder-woman-movie-insider-review-disaster-mess/), but I'm still willing to wait to see for myself. Would I be surprised if the movie stunk? Hell, no, considering the DCEU's movie track record, but I'm still a bit wary of 'insider' leaks. Could be someone eager to declare another DC disaster? Even with all the red flags on BvS, I still went to see for myself first before judging. And, yes, it was a slogfest, but Diana has beaten long odds before!

Hola, my friends! If anyone can break the DCEU's lousy track record, it'll probably be the Amazing Amazon! :)

Omigosh! I just saw The LEGO: Batman Movie yesterday and it is adorable! The cute factor is to the max! :) There were some laugh-at-loud moments, quite a few chuckles, and lots of smiles. I LOVE it!

And Robin’s yellow cape sparkles!!! )

I highly recommend this movie to any comics fan, Bat-fan, and especially, to any Dick Grayson fans! :) I give it an A, maybe even an A+ because of how happy I felt leaving the theater, and still smiling when I think about certain scenes and lines.

So rev up the Batmobile and get yourself to a movie theater quick! You won’t regret it! :)

And Robin’s yellow cape sparkles!!! ;)

Happy Valentine's Day, my friends! May your day be a joyous one. :)

Whoops, gotta go get some breakfast. I'll be going to the early showing of Lego Batman with some friends, and then we'll be visiting my sister as she recovers from surgery at home. Enjoy your day! Review to come. ;)

Bruce stared through the iron gates at the old mansion that seemed to sag with an air of despair. His hands were curled around the spikes of the rusting gates as rain fell in steady sheets. He could hear the tempest-tossed ocean as it surged below the cliffs. )

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*
bradygirl_12: (superman--batman (blood) 1)
Okay, Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice is finally here! I plan on going next week on Bargain Day to see this foundation of the DCCU. I chose a profile icon to celebrate Clark and Bruce, even though they probably won't say a civil word to each other in the entire movie. I'll probably replace it with a Wonder Woman icon soon, as she is emerging as the best thing in this film. Wouldn't it be a kick if a Wondy movie actually saved DC's bacon after they took 76 years to present her on the big screen in a live-action flick?

I won't be reading any reviews until Tuesday, but go ahead and write them! I plan on checking back after I've written my own. Hopefully this movie will be better than we think. Huzzah for the World's Finest! :)

In honor of our boys, take a walk down Memory Lane or enjoy the fun for the first time with World's Finest #289. It's canon, folks! ;)

Yikes!

Early reviews for Batman vs. Superman are mostly negative: dark, violent and ultimately boring, with Wonder Woman the best part of the film, according to the critics.

I'll let you know my opinion after I see it next Tuesday. Maybe the critics are wrong, but I'll give you a complete rundown when I get back. It doesn't even disturb me about the reviews since I half-expected it. A movie due out in July of 2015 pushed back to May of 2016, then changed to March because the studio doesn't want to go head-to-head with Captain America 3: Civil War kinda gives you a hint, along with the trailers looking like they were filmed during an eclipse, everything's so dark. *squints*

The foyer was draped in black crepe and the chandelier was festooned with fake cobwebs. Music drifted into the foyer from the ballroom. Bruce led Dick down the hall to the ballroom, a cavernous room with muted lighting and more black crepe draping the walls. The crepe was decorated with luminescent ghosts, bats and cats. The chandeliers were draped in black-and-orange streamers as the low-wattage bulbs cast an eerie glow. )

Dick followed him into a dark interior. Smoke wreathed the denizens’ heads as mugs of ale were raised. A vigorous dart game was going on in the corner, and several men in a booth were lustily singing a bawdy song. )

He spent some of his time exploring the Manor. The multitude of rooms and hidden nooks and crannies reminded him of Bruce: so many facets of hidden treasures! And he loved treasure hunting. )
