Justice League Dark (Film)

What is it?

The 2017 American animated supernatural dark fantasy superhero movie Justice League Dark.

What is it about?

This is how DC Entertainment describes this animated movie:

When innocent civilians begin committing unthinkable crimes across Metropolis, Gotham City and beyond, Batman must call upon mystical counterparts to eradicate this demonic threat to the planet.

Enter Justice League Dark, reluctantly led by the Hellblazer himself, John Constantine.

Like Batman, Constantine is a cunning, often cynical loner who is the best at his chosen profession – but quickly realizes the sinister forces plaguing the planet will require help from other supernatural alliances.

Forming a new “league” with sorceress Zatanna, otherworldly Deadman, and Jason Blood and his powerful alter ego Etrigan the Demon, this team of Dark Arts specialists must unravel the mystery of Earth’s supernatural plague and contend with the rising, powerful villainous forces behind the siege – before it’s too late for all of mankind.

What do I like about it and what would other people like about it?

I like that some less often seen superheroes and supervillains were the main characters (except for Batman who should not have been there), that magic and the paranormal and the supernatural were the main focus, and I think that other people will like that as well.

Final Thoughts

This animated movie was okay, but a few of the characters had annoying voices and Batman should not have been there.

The end,

Spider-Man: Homecoming

Source: YouTube

What is it?

The 2017 America superhero movie Spider-Man: Homecoming.

What is it about?

This is how Rotten Tomatoes describes this movie:

A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Captain America: Civil War, begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging super hero in Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.).

Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine–distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man–but when the Vulture (Michael Keaton) emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened.

Final Thoughts

I do not really like Spider-Man but this movie was better than I expected, it had a pretty good pace at first, but the movie was longer than it should have been in my opinion.

The end,

The Punisher (Season 1)

What is it?

The American web television show The Punisher.

What is it about?

This is how Rotten Tomatoes describe this television show:

After exacting revenge on those responsible for the death of his wife and children, Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal) uncovers a conspiracy that runs far deeper than New York’s criminal underworld.

Now known throughout the city as The Punisher, he must discover the truth about injustices that affect more than his family alone.

Final Thoughts

I did not like this show as much as most people did and I did not like it as much as I had expected, and it took my brother GC and me longer to finish watching it than it would have with other shows like Black Mirror (even if they were the same length).

There were some good things about it but, it reminded me of season 1 of Daredevil which / that I also had a problem with in its feeling and pacing at times which felt slow and dragging and empty et cetera sometimes.

I do like how some issues were explored a bit, but I felt that they missed out on some important things when exploring some of those issues.

I also felt that this show should have been shorter.

Out of the current Netflix Marvel series this probably has the best action scenes though, and the action definitely got brutal at the end and some things did improve at the end.

The end,
