Batman: The Killing Joke
5 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

When one considers the events of a Batman episode from the animated series back in the 90's, namely the Catwoman episode where Bats and Cats get chummy, but Batman cuffs her and takes her into the police anyway, it's hard to understand the ending of this movie. Some really nasty things happen here and others are clearly implied, atrocities committed by the Joker at large. I couldn't help thinking that Batman was actually about to kill the Joker. The "offer" he makes to the Joker at the end seemed like a nod to his own conscience, something he had to try before he does what has to be done despite himself. But, what happens? They enjoy a joke together. That's a betrayal of the entire narrative.

Independence Day: Resurgence
6 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Skip it. Intellectually boring, derivative and repetative, sometimes to the point of being corny.... like some moments in old Rocky movies. Having read some things lately about how the Jesuits and not the Jews controllHollywood, I can see how a movie like this could be just one more "brain washing" and "social programming" for the public. Pray for help, but never be thankful, after all humanity can take care of itself against anything. After 45 minutes my eyes glazed over at the now common special effects. Don't bother.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
7 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Not as bad as some would have you believe. Affleck was suprising in his role, Cavil seemed to play by numbers for Clark Kent. Starts great with concerns over how much leverage super types can be given, especially when their work is destructive on a large scale, but then it throws all that concern away and ends with catastrophie anyhow. A terrible social message to send about chaos being inevitable in any discussion. But if we don't think too much about the narrative concerns, then it's worth your time... even despite the corny Freudian overtones.

Captain America: Civil War
7 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Great stuff when it concentrates on the intellectual aspect of the conflict. Maylays at an airport are all "Saturday morning cartoon" fare but the real fight comes toward the end when friends lay into each other over loyalties and nobody is a clear cut winner. Not better than Winter Soldier, but well worth anyone's attention. Consummate acting and directing, a big jump from the days of 1990's rubber suits and boring villains.

X-Men: Apocalypse
7 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Not a movie the superhero genre really needed at this point. Plays like an episode and probably presented incorrectly. Set in 1983, we already know the X-Men won this one since present day movies have already come and gone. Why not present the sotry this way? narrated by a teaching Professor X to a class of students who then go out and win some other battle? Actor who plays Qucksilver has star presence and should get his own film.
