Shazam! (DCEU #7)

Hello, hello!
We’ve come to the end of my DCEU review series. Although many more films will be coming our way soon, Shazam! is the last one on my list for now.

The Plot:

Billy’s life changes forever when he gets recruited by some ancient wizard and it imbued with superpowers. Well, the bad guys are stepping up there game as well…

The Rating:

This was delightful! After the DCEU movies had started to improve little by little, I had my hopes up for Shazam! I had no idea what to expect and ended up pleasantly surprised.

Shazam! did exactly what I was talking about in my Aquaman review. They went with the humoristic approach and it works so well! It’s the funniest DCEU movie so far and I had a blast watching it.

Aquaman (DCEU #6)

Hello, hello!
Welcome to another installment of DCEU – hit or miss? So far, 4 out of 5 movies were a pretty big disappointment. Wonder Woman has been the only silver lining, but maybe Aquaman can help out in that department. Let’s find out!

The Plot:

Arthur Curry aka Aquaman is half human, half Atlantean. While he is not exactly on speaking terms with the water-y side of his family he’ll soon need to embrace his destiny to save the worlds above and under the sea.

The Rating:

Okay, so DC continues its streak of light improvement. Aquaman is far more enjoyable than Justice League but still light-years away from reaching Wonder Woman standard.

Let’s being with the things I liked about this picture, shall we?

Justice League (DCEU #5)

Hello guys!
After Wonder Woman’s wonder-ful solo movie, we are back at it with Superman and Batman. Let’s find out whether things are finally looking up for the DCEU!

The Plot:

Steppenwolf and his Parademons want to take over the world. Batman teams up with Wonder Woman and some other colleagues but do they really stand a chance without Superman?

The Rating:

This is definitely worse than the solo Wonder Woman movie, but I now have hope for the DCEU.

Although Justice League is messy at times and I don’t really like the story, I did enjoy this one more than previous films. They seem to have learned from the negative feedback and at least attempted to fix a few of the problems.

Wonder Woman (DCEU #4)

Hello, hello!
Today I get to talk about the DCEU movie I was most excited about. Although I didn’t exactly love the other films, I had high hopes for Wonder Woman. Let’s see how that turned out!

The Plot:

In this film, we learn about Wonder Woman’s origin. As the daughter of the Queen of the Amazons, she grew up on Themiscyra, a mystical island. When a pilot crashlands and reveals information about the first World War, Wonder Woman aka Diana has to leave her homeland to rescue the world.

The Rating:

This was amazing! I am so relieved to say that I finally found a DCEU movie I loved.

The story is quite intriguing and despite a few flaws I was hooked and thrilled throughout the entire film. Not only is it interesting that they went with WWI instead of WWII for a change, but it’s also wonderful to follow Diana as she discovers our world.

Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice (DCEU #2)

Hello, hello!
Although I wasn’t too thrilled by Man of Steel, I’m not giving up on the DCEU just yet. The next movie in line is Batman vs. Superman, so let’s see how that turned out!

The Plot:

How do I even summarize this plot? Lex Luthor is a bad guy who somehow is obsessed with Superman. So he decides to manipulate him into a fight with Batman.

The Rating:

I thought I disliked Man of Steel, but I hadn’t seen this one yet. Wow, this was bad.

It starts with the title. When a film is called Batman vs. Superman I expect a big rivalry or something with the two guys going toe to toe with each other. However, this is not the case at all! There’s actually just one fight between the two that not one of them wants to be fighting. It’s just based on Lex Luthor threatening Superman’s loved ones.

Thursday Movie Picks: 2019 Releases

Hey, guys!
Welcome to another entry for Thursday Movie Picks.
It’s a series hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves, so if you want to join the party, head over to her blog! It’s pretty easy: check out each week’s topic and come up with 3 to 5 movies that fit the theme.
Today I’ll share some of my favorite films that came out last year. Reviews for all of those are coming in April – so stay tuned!

#1 Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

I actually went to see this one twice. Tarantino’s latest picture divides audiences and I can understand why some people disliked it. However, I for my part had a great time with it!

#2 Ready or Not

Speaking of great times! I laughed so much while watching this crazy movie. Samara Weaving is stunning and in the final scenes, she gave me Heather vibes. Ready or Not was (by far) not as hyped as my other picks but it gets a 100% recommendation from me.
