I think it’s safe now. So I did watch Batman V Superman Dawn of Justice and going in I was super hyped. I was wanting to see this film. I knew deep down that the film was going to be something for the fans and not so much the critics. I can tell you the critics want more MCU and less dark DCEU. That being said it won’t be like the MCU at all at least not this go around. I hope never they have to be different. So now with the review.

The story kicks off with Bruce’s parents dying once again. Only this time you get to see what I can only hope will be the two people to play a part in the Flash Point Paradox (one could only hope they do this story). So they die and Bruce runs through a field at Wayne Manor and he falls into a hole, a hole that would eventually become the batcave. And all of a sudden the bats start lifting him up. I am like what the hell is going on? Then you hear the voice of Bruce saying it’s a dream. I am like thank Christ because if within the first five minuets Zack screws up Batman people are going to lose their minds. And it was at that moment I was taken out of the film, my excitement and wonder for this film faded more quickly than a pee hard on.

The film does have some good parts and bad parts so the first one I wanted to tell you why I was taken out of the film. Here are the pros and cons

Pros
1. They showed how everyone was affected by the destruction in MoS.
2. The people wanted Superman to be held to a different standard and be accountable and he was willing to come forward and do whatever it takes (he shows up at the senate hearing).
3. Batman (Everything) and he shows you how to prepare, and how he prepared for this fight.
4. The amount of the other founding members of the JL were not jam packed into the film and made me excited for Justice League
5. Lex was psychotic and I loved this version of this kid.
6. Flash dream sequence was great probably the only one that was needed in the whole film.
7. Lex being a catalyst to the fight.
8. Superman knowing he needed Batman.
9. Wonder Woman
10. Doomsday (in this universe it was set up brilliantly from MoS it was overlooked a bit. However Zack had at least one plan.
11. The Death of Superman (Yeah I know he’s my boy, but this was Superman vs Doomsday he’s got to die.)

Cons
1. Zacks in ability to get proper help writing a story he should have never wrote in the first place.
2. Superman was a dick, he didn’t want to be Superman at one point. Even disappearing off into the Arctic.
3. Lex was too weak at points and not calm, cool and collected like he should have been.
4. Batman kills…….you had one rule Zack and you fucked that up…..
5. Martha Kent is kind of a bitch saying he doesn’t owe the world a thing. He owes the world everything.
6. ADHD brand of story telling. No offence to the people with ADHD but I am seriously questioning Zack’s ability.
7. The movie didn’t do the talent justice at all. Ben, Gal, Henry and Co were excellent that was one bad first two acts to sludge through.
8. It didn’t do Man of Steel Justice. Everyone who knows me knows I loved Man of Steel. You didn’t even get Man of Steel version of Superman in this film. You got a terrible version of Superman who just wants to quit. In Man of Steel you can at least see that he always finds a way and tries his best to save everyone.
9. Lois still can’t learn to call him Superman. It’s always Clark this and Clark that. Like shut the fuck up.
10. I’ve heard lots of people who thought the movie would be more of Batman v Superman and not just one fight. His mom’s name being said and best bros for life happen.
11. Superman comes back to or appears to come back to life just before the end credits.

Okay so I started the review off with the beginning of the film being bad, and now here are my thoughts on the last part. First of all in Man of Steel Superman snaps Zod’s neck and he’s still dead. In Batman v Superman the Doomsday that they had evolved to a point where he has a huge spike in his fist and he plants it through Superman’s chest. I am okay with this. What I am not okay with is him coming back to life or appearing to come back to life when the soil starts to move like when he’s going to fly. He should be dead that is until the Flash accidentally goes back in time to save him.

That being said there was enough easter eggs in here. When the Trinity finally come together it’s a great film and I was brought back into the film.

Takeaways.

1) I don’t care if Zack directs the film just don’t let him write Justice League.
2) Go back to the time when in the Man of Steel he had a loving look in his eyes. Not this “consider this mercy bullshit”
3) Stop having Lois say Clark every fucking time it’s no wonder the whole world knows who the fuck he is.
4) Geoff Johns is the key not LOIS! Seriously DC if you want anyone to take you seriously after you made even me question what Zack is doing give Geoff the keys.

I will say this first two acts were slow and terribly put together. Visually a lot of the stuff was shot very well, that’s what Zack did in this case. He pointed a camera in a general direction and recorded stuff. The last act brought me back into the film with some hope. I loved the videos of Wonder Woman, Flash, Cyborg and especially Aquaman.

Ratings in Reels of course…

LISTEN TO REEL MUSIC this Saturday live on CKLU or on next Tuesday in podcast form. I am sure I will do more than this on the radio with O J (I don’t want to tag him I am unsure if he’s seen it as of yet.).

This is how the film should have ended. So he could change what happened even if by accident.

Ehnother Podcast S04E08 – That’s a Wrap

Hi everyone! I am alone this week as OJ and I were working on a special youtube video. That should be up in a couple of few and when it is we will share it with you. I tell you about Maley Drive and how we need to do this for the betterment of our city. Some other things I tell you about are the Tianjin Explosion that happened in August of 2015 but footage started to make it’s way around the internet and it’s spectacular.

The warehouse where this happened was storing illegal amounts of dangerous chemicals.  173 people died during this massive explosion.

And last but certainly not least, legendary singer / songwriter Steve Young passed away and he was known by many fans of the Eagles for writing Seven Bridges Road. Below you will be able to hear the original version that Steve did and under that the live version with the 5 part harmonies that the Eagles did.

We talk about my action figures on the shelf and dream of when the youngest moves out to make a proper Podcast Studio. I am working on plans now! It should be no time before she is all done school and living the good life, and her bedroom get’s converted into either a grandkid bedroom or a podcast studio. I am sure that it will actually be a grandkid bedroom. That being said I am hoping to upgrade my Superman 30″ tall one to a Man of Steel! We talk about the Incredible Hulk getting tattoos which would be awesome, but thinking about it he couldn’t because his blood is radiated. Superheroes and their sponsors,  Go to this link if you want a Deadpool Movie!

Warlock Wednesday’s Episode 84 … Prayers for Sophie!! (Again)

Ehnother Podcast presents Warlock Wednesday Episode #84…
This week’s episode breezes by a lot faster and a lot less allergy related than last weeks. Some casting news and rumours, a heart felt message from the Fast & Furious Family and of course more announcements of reboots and remakes. I take a stab at trying to pronounce a name that I think I got right, but who knows. Sadly, we do have a death to announce. He played in the Harry Potter franchise, Snatch and Batman Begins… also he is a former MMA star from the UFC. Not much in the way of super hero news, but I give my thoughts and opinion of what should happen with the fledgling Spider-Man franchise. Marvel Comics makes TWO huge announcements and you can find the details inside.
In sports, NFL training camps are set to open today and I give you the dates of the Ehnother Podcast family’s favourite teams start dates. Also Jimmy Graham gets a contract and then using the Around the League guys, I give you 8 players who may regress in 2014. As well as 3 keys to watch during training camp for the AFC North and AFC West teams. Baseball standings and statistics return to the podcast this week. Also, since this coming Sunday is the WWE Battleground Pay-Per-View, I give you my predictions.
Hope you enjoy the show, and see you next week!

NOTE!!! Do not forget Prayers for Sophie. A link will be below where you can donate $5 for a ticket into the Stephen Amell raffle. Check the links below or listen to last week’s episode for more information.
