Let me get this straight Tony Stark gives Peter Parker this new high tech suit and yet does not offer any training not just with the suit but with his powers all the while claiming he wants to protect Peter. Sorry that is a fatal flaw. To offset the lack of training with his suit we get to watch Spidey crash through many walls and obstacles and since this version of Spidey has no spider-sense his new computerized suit cant even warn him of any situation. Its better than Spiderman 3 and any of the Garfield ones but that is a low bar.
So the latest Alien movie has turned into a teen slasher movie with all the clichés and all the same questionable behavior. I was expecting a little more after how thoughtful Prometheus was but this was a paint by numbers horror flick and a boring one at that.
I enjoy William Powell as much as any actor but there is one reason to watch this and that is Luise Rainer. The joy and charm she brings to the role of Anna Held is captivating. The movie is long and it tries to be a biopic and a 30's era musical at the same time which I can understand as this is during the depression and it gives people a chance to see a Ziegfeld Follies production which most people could not do back then.
Like Avengers, an omnipotent being is here to destroy the earth, in this case Steppenwolf. What? Who? Yea I laughed everytime they said his name. He may be a strong, albeit minor character in the DC universe, on film it was just silly. Gadot and Momoa are great, Cavill is excellent as Superman but having him swinging away in front of a green screen for the last third of the movie means he does not bring a lot to the table. I don't have a problem with Affleck, Miller was a mixed bag and perhaps that was due to the two different directors. Now for Fisher's Cyborg, WTF. A bizarre suit design, poor CGI, poor editing to the point where at different scenes he was not scaled to size and another where he was pasted in wrong. Seems like this would of been a better second movie with the first one having the hero's putting all the villains in Suicide Squad in prison. The end credit scene has promise but frankly I would be happy with just a series of Wonder Woman and Aquaman movies, with them teaming up.
