Comment on The Vision #4 by Joshua Lagohttp://weeklycomicbookreview.com/2016/02/10/the-vision-4/#comment-38491 Mon, 04 Apr 2016 20:23:00 +0000 http://weeklycomicbookreview.com/?p=47930#comment-38491 Excellent summary. I read the first issue when it came bundled with Spiderman/Deadpool #1, and while the art style had me a little put off at first, curiosity about one of Marvel’s oddest big names compelled me to read anyway. I’m absolutely enthralled that I did; The Vision has been one of the most surprising reads for me in modern comics, and the existential writing is on par with some of my favourite science fiction tales of artificial intelligence. Absolutely phenomenal.

Comment on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice by Joshua Lagohttp://weeklycomicbookreview.com/2016/03/28/batman-v-superman-dawn-justice/#comment-38490 Mon, 04 Apr 2016 20:18:00 +0000 http://weeklycomicbookreview.com/?p=48072#comment-38490 This take on Lex was definitely odd, but since we’re clearly seeing the very early stages of the character, I’m curious to see if a more familiar Lex begins to form on-screen in future installments. I can’t blame anybody for being put off by it, though. Also excited to see where they go from here, and grateful we only have to wait a couple months for Suicide Squad!

BvS doesn’t deserve its Rotten Tomatoes score. However, it is a bit overstuffed. Did we really need Doomsday this go around? Jessie Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor was just awful. The mix of Joker and Riddler was so off-putting I cringed every time he was onscreen. He really hurt the film. Still, Affleck was great, maybe better than Bale? Cavill makes a perfect Superman. Wonder Woman was excellent. Zimmer and Junk XL’s score is a 10/10. I’ve been replaying a lot since seeing the film. Looking forward to how the DC universe builds.

While the film certainly isn’t perfect, I walked away from the screening wondering what had incited the public lashing most of the internet seem to be dishing out at this film, its cast, its directors, its score, and every number of other things… I wanted to focus on the strengths of what they went with here.

The score is a big deal to me personally; music has long been a pursuit of mine, and I’ve enjoyed seeing how film scores evolve over time. Hans Zimmer is someone whose work I’ve admired for a while, and I’m absolutely stoked that Junkie XL is picking up big films like this and contributing his unique style. I can’t get the score of this movie out of my head, and in the best possible way!

I definitely encounter a variety of opinions on the film, but I’ve been surprised by some of my friends who aren’t usually that interested in dissecting films coming up with insightful criticisms of various elements.

I think there are definitely some flaws I overlook/forgive because of how strong my favourite parts of the film are, but the widespread discussion of this movie has been interesting, at least.

Comment on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice by Steve Baumhttp://weeklycomicbookreview.com/2016/03/28/batman-v-superman-dawn-justice/#comment-38486 Wed, 30 Mar 2016 12:43:00 +0000 http://weeklycomicbookreview.com/?p=48072#comment-38486 I’m with David Kilmer. This is one of the few honest reviews that can point out the good instead of just the bad. And yeah. . .there’s some bad, but I’m no reviewer. I’ll just say that if you’re looking for a darker take on superheroes than Marvel is offering, then they have some Distinguished Competition indeed. If you want lighter, brighter, jokey superheroics, then you won’t like it at all. Stick to Marvel. I also have to congratulate the reviewer for posting the only review I’ve seen yet that makes note of the absolutely FANTASTIC musical score. Nicely done!

Yours is the first sane piece I’ve read on the film. Do you find yourself arguing with friends about it?

Comment on All-New X-Factor #14 – Review by Hysteriahttp://weeklycomicbookreview.com/2014/09/22/all-new-x-factor-14-review/#comment-38479 Mon, 08 Feb 2016 23:11:00 +0000 http://weeklycomicbookreview.com/?p=41850#comment-38479 Polaris wouldn’t kill anyone. This book was the best of where we see the sisters interaction. Peter David is the best writer aside from Cullen Bunn. The All new X-Factor from 1-20 was an excellent, funny, fun, strong and marvelous book to read.

Comment on All-New All-Different Avengers #3 by ginfluencehttp://weeklycomicbookreview.com/2016/01/18/new-different-avengers-3/#comment-38470 Thu, 21 Jan 2016 20:54:00 +0000 http://weeklycomicbookreview.com/?p=47848#comment-38470 I agree with this review and I wish I didn’t. I love all these characters (and I mean love), but they all come across as bland. I keep wondering why Miles is there. He literally hasn’t doesn’t anything in this arc. He’s Spider-Man but hasn’t done anything Spider-Man related whatsoever. Even his spider sense has been suppressed.
As for the team, there has been no interaction or banter between them which is disappointing. What do the “youngsters” think of Vision for example. They wouldn’t have seen anything like him before. All that being said, I still have high hopes for this series and I will continue to be excited when it arrived on my door step
