Trailer of The Day- Justice League

The first official trailer for DC’s ensemble superhero flick was just released by Warner Brothers.

In this trailer, we see a few more glimpses of Aquaman (Jason Momoa) Cyborg (Ray Fisher) and the Flash (Ezra Miller) fighting alongside Batman (Ben Affleck) and Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), as well as the first footage of J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon.

In Justice League, Batman, along with Wonder Woman, unite other metahumans to protect the earth from an newly awakened evil.

Wonder Woman will have her own solo venture this June, so it’s probable we’ll see an Easter egg or two for Justice League around that time.

Directed by Zach Snyder, Justice League releases this November.

 

 

300: Rise of an Empire Review

By: Bryan Montgomery
Rating: 7 out of 10

three_hundred_rise_of_an_empire_ver2In 2007, Zach Snyder broke into the scene with a faithful and action-packed rendition of 300, adapted from Frank Miller’s classic graphic novel of the same name.  Mixing style and action to immensely create a testosterone-fueled blood fest that brought audiences out in droves.  Snyder has since moved onto bigger and better projects such as the well-received Watchmen adaptation and the mediocre-at-best Sucker Punch and Man of Steel outings, but the world that Snyder helped establish in the Greek empire has now passed onto director Noam Murro, who brings us 300: Rise of an Empire with assistance from Snyder.  A very strong sequel in its own right, Rise of an Empire benefits from outstanding set pieces and action scenes along with an incredible turn from Eva Green, but simply cannot equal the game-changing nature of its predecessor.

Man of Steel Review

Rating: 8 out of 10

man-of-steel-posterThe idea that The Dark Knight franchise can’t be outdone is a myth. Yes, the films have set the bar even higher for what superhero movies could be, but that doesn’t mean the bar can’t be set even higher.

The idea of a Superman film in the post-Dark Knight, Marvel-era that can entertain the superhero moviegoer, seemed funny at first. However, Man of Steel brings everything you want in a superhero movie now, and what you expect from a Superman movie, and then some.

Sucker Punch Review

By: Bryan Montgomery
Rating: 6.5 out of 10

When Zack Snyder first burst onto the scene with 2003’s Dawn of the Dead, he was seen as the beginning of a new age of directors.  2007’s 300 proved that, as Snyder essentially created an entire new genre with his visionary Spartan epic. With his new film Sucker Punch, Snyder has his wildest and most unique adventure, although the end result is nowhere near the expectations made prior to the film’s release, which ultimately makes the film a disappointment.
