Last week me and the hubby went to see Batman V Superman: The Dawn of Justice. And what I have to say is I liked it. There were some problems, but Ben Affleck was not one of them. I thought he made a perfect older Batman. Jesse Eisenberg gave Lex Luther a more loony feel.
This will not be everyone’s cup of tea. But like I said I liked it. It might not be the best of the year, but it is worth a watch. It is not for kids, and there are some slow parts. But even the slow parts were interesting.
I really liked Batman’s dreams. Crazy stuff. I liked the Easter eggs. Like the sneak peek of the other members of the Justice League. I was surprised that they brought in Doomsday though.
Blurb: Following his titanic struggle against General Zod, Metropolis has been razed to the ground and Superman is the most controversial figure in the world. While for many he is still an emblem of hope, a growing number of people consider him a threat to humanity, seeking justice for the chaos he has brought to Earth. As far as Bruce Wayne is concerned, Superman is clearly a danger to society. He fears for the future of the world with such a reckless power left ungoverned, and so he dons his mask and cape to right Superman’s wrongs. The rivalry between them is furious, fueled by bitterness and vengeance, and nothing can dissuade them from waging this war. However, a dark new threat arises in the form of a third man: one who has a power greater than either of them to endanger the world and cause total destruction!
So out of the new shows that have came out there is one that I really love. Lucifer on FOX. Biggest fear, since I love it, FOX might cancel it. This is another comic book series turned into a show.
Based on characters created by Neil Gaiman, Sam Kieth and Mike Dringenberg as a supporting character in the comic book series The Sandman, which later got it’s own comic book series Lucifer written by Mike Carey, both published by DC Comics’ Vertigo line.
This series follows Lucifer, the original fallen angel, who has become dissatisfied with his life in hell. After abandoning his throne and taking a vacation in Los Angeles, Lucifer indulges in his favorite things (women, wine and song) — until a murder takes place outside of his upscale nightclub. For the first time in billions of years, the murder awakens something unfamiliar in Lucifier’s soul that is eerily similar to compassion and sympathy. Lucifer is faced with another surprise when he meets an intriguing homicide detective named Chloe, who appears to possess an inherent goodness — unlike the worst of humanity, to which he is accustomed. Suddenly, Lucifer starts to wonder if there is hope for his soul.
The show is a mix of comedy and crime show. The actor who they got to play Lucifer, Tom Ellis, makes the show. We all know the story of Lucifer and his fall from grace. But seeing this from his side, how his job has put so much weight on his shoulders. Why should he be in charge of this darkness, why should sinners say they are doing it in his name. He didn’t ask for this. I recommend this for people who like crime/mystery shows who are not afraid of a supernatural add.
