On Decisions

I just saw an article on CBR.com claiming that the post credits scenes from “Justice League” was better than the post credits scenes for “Marvel” movies over the last few years. It’s here https://www.cbr.com/justice-leagues-post-credits-tag-is-actually-better-than-marvels/ . No.

no

SPOILERS IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN “JUSTICE LEAGUE” [SPOILERS]

So the first scene if “Superman” starting a race with “The Flash”…. We just did this on “Supergirl” a couple years ago and it was done better there. If they were gonna do this it would’ve been better as an opening to “The Flash” movie or the next “Superman” movie. Better yet show some of the actual race. It was cute but not great.

The second scene… Okay for some reason I was looking away at first and I heard laughter. And I was like “oh shit a better version of “The Joker”? The I saw a bald guy and thought “oh even better, a better version of “Lex Luthor”… No it was just a decoy…. The “real” Lex Luthor has escaped prison… The effin’ Jesse Eisenberg “Lex Luthor” still exist… Nothing against the actor personally. In fact it’s more how the character was written that sucks. I literally almost want to knock the movie down a whole letter grade for this. Then we see “Deathstoke” and that was cool, and the “league of our own line” was good.

[/SPOILERS]

It’s not even that “Marvel” post credits scenes have be particularly great because many haven’t, but “Justice League’s” definitely weren’t better. Plus I don’t care what anyone says the one for “Spiderman: Homecoming” was funny as hell.

That’s it for this week! Check out new “Criminal And Crimefighter Conversations” on Tuesdays-Thursdays. Hope you enjoy and see ya then!

On “Rotten Tomatoes”

ccc-283-freedomfemaleunderwatermonarchandfragcounttemplate-01ccc-283-freedomfemaleunderwatermonarchandfragcounttemplate2-01

When you’re young you pick sides on things that don’t matter. You’re a fanboy (or girl (FEMINISM!)). So if you’re somewhere around 25 or under and you’re a fanboy I don’t blame you. I was one. Almost everyone is. Hopefully though as you get older you realize companies don’t give a shit about you. Defedning a company’s “honor” means nothing. You realize you loyalty should be to quality. Screw who makes whatever it is. Both “Marvel” and “DC” have great characters. It’s the characters that matter.

“Marvel” makes better movies. Period. It’s not even close. It’s not debatable. Art is subjective but there are standards when it comes to writing, humor, pacing, ect. “Marvel” movies are better written, better paced, the funny parts are funnier, and there more and better action. Sadly, though “Justice League” is the best movie they made yet it’s a critical failure may already be a flop. Too little too late

Saying all that, because “Marvel” makes better movies “DC” fanboys have to make excuses for why move of the “DCEU” movie are critically panned. The most insane one is the “Rotten Tomatoes” rigged conspiracy. Here’s why that isn’t true:

  • They simply average reviews. Someone might say “well they might only include bad reviews to change the score for…. Reasons”… They wouldn’t because…
  • They are partially owned by “Warner Brothers” who also owns “DC Comics”. “Warner Brothers” likes making money. Then someone might say “..but other reasons”
  • “Wonder Woman” got insanely high reviews and it sucked. In fact it was named the best superhero movie ever by them or something. Again C+ movie if you’re kind. Maybe slightly better than “Thor 2” which was the worst “Marvel” movie. You can see that bullshit for yourself here https://editorial.rottentomatoes.com/guide/50-best-superhero-movies-of-all-time/5/ . Someone then might say “that’s the exception that proves the rule”
  • Shut up

So no they’re just bad movies. Are the reviews for “Justice League” a little harsh? Sure. It’s being compared to the 2nd best comic movie ever, “The Avengers”. “Marvel” makes stuff that gets nitpicked to death too. Completely unrelated but “All Eyez On Me” gets treated like it gives you cancer and at very worst it’s an okay movie that tries to do the impossible job of summing up “2pac’s” life in one movie. It happens. Conspiracies in general are all bullshit because at the end of the day people with power don’t need to hide what they’re doing. They just do it.

Probably getting too deep for you now so I’ll end here. Tomorrow these guys return to talk about “decisions”. Hope you enjoy and see ya then!

Conversations 237 – Hazard Hands, Freedom Female, Headmistress, Slowku & Spiderous-Man On The “Prehistoric Revenge Squad”

ccc-237-hazardhandsfreedomfemaleheadmistresslowkuspiderousmantemplate-01ccc-237-hazardhandsfreedomfemaleheadmistresslowkuspiderousmantemplate2-01

The next big event happening with “Marvel” is “Generations” and part of that is a series called “Marvel Legacy”. Part of that is the introduction of “Avengers 100,000,000 BC”. Confused yet? To blatantly steal a line from “Watchmen” “don’t be alarmed that only indicates you are still sane”.

watchmen

If you haven’t seen the team it features Odin, “Agamotto” (the guy whose eye “Dr. Strange” wears), and a “Hulk”-looking guy whose a“Star Brand” (“Star Brand” is a “New Universe” character “Marvel” has been trying to make happen for the last few years).

fetch

Also there are version of “Phoenix”, “Iron Fist”, “Ghost Rider” (who rides a flaming Mastadon!!!), and “Black Panther”.

My kneejerk reaction is “this is stupid and makes no sense for a whole host of reason”, BUT the art looks good. So even though I’m going to make fun of this all week in these comics I’ll actually try to give it a fair chance when it comes out. Fingers crossed folks…

Tomorrow these guys return and continue on about the “Prehistoric Revenge Squad”. Hope ya enjoy and see ya then!

Wonder Woman : Now They’re Just Getting Greedy

I’ve harped on “Wonder Woman” a lot, but the level to which it is overrated keeps ramping up. It has now gone from “ridiculous” to “fanatical”. It’s so bad that I thought maybe I was too harsh on it so I got a cammed version so I could watch it again… Nope it’s a C+ movie. At best. I wouldn’t give ya shit if you gave it a B, but it’s a C movie. I still need to re-watch “Man Of Steel” to see if it’s even the best “DCEU” movie. I went into pretty good detail about the flaws so I won’t bore you with that again. I’m not saying it’s completely without merit or it’s terrible. It has “heart”. Which is pretty much the film equivalent of “she’s got a nice personality”.

I bring all this up because supposedly now there’s a campaign for “Wonder Woman” to get an “Oscar”.

pac

foh

This is just greedy. You skated by on a mediocre movie. Don’t be like Trump. Take your “technical” win with some humility. Learn from the mistakes and come back with a movie that actually deserves the praise. Knowing how things work if it does get nominated it will probably get an “Oscar” for something. If this happens they should give it to the people who made “Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol.2”. A movie that is better written, has more and better action, is funnier, and actually has more “heart” in it’s own way. So far it is BY FAR the best superhero movie this year.

Oh and as far as the comic, just in case it wasn’t clear Salty Sandy is basically “Petter Potts”. Tomorrow Admiral A, Admiral Star, The Good Knight, and Slowku discuss a contest and an induction. Hope you enjoy and see ya then!

Ya know what I really liked? I like when “The Punisher” was off by himself in an R-rated comic that was part of “Marvel’s” “Max line” of comics. “The Punisher” could be in violent messed-up stories and wouldn’t be involved in some terrible crossover. Sadly, those days are gone… They went and brought him back in the normal “Marvel Universe”. Now with this “Secret Invasion” crossover they got going on he’s part of “Hydra”. Ugh!

There’s a rationale for it, and I guess it kinda makes sense but still… Ugh! He shouldn’t be in this the first place. He should be murdering mobsters by the truckload. That would be bad enough, but lately “Marvel” and “DCComics” have been playing “bad idea chicken”. As far as comics “Marvel’s” been winning this race to the bottom for a while now. “Marvel” is going to up the ante by making “The Punisher” the new “War Machine”. Yep kill off one of the few Black characters that’s isn’t just a poor man’s version of a White hero and replace him with a White guy who shouldn’t even be involved in the first place. What even needs to be said at this point?

Tomorrow these guys return and Spiderous-Man elaborates on what he wants The Innovator to do. Hope you enjoy and see ya then!

Criminal And Crimefighter Conversations #110 Special-Girl, J-Pop, & Luscious Trapp On The Champion Crew & The Champs (Censored)

Special-Girl, J-Pop, & Luscious Trapp On The Champion Crew & The Champs (Censored)

ccc-110-specialgirlj-popluscioustrappc

The first issue of “Marvel’s” new “Champions” series came out last week. It’s an okay comic. Most of the heroes were part of the “All New All Different Avengers”, and their reason for leaving that team is kinda flimsy. Something about fighting during “Civil War II” and not doing enough to fix things after battles.  This comic is mostly about how I decided to name my version of the “Teen Titans” “The Champion Crew” and how that is similar to “The Champions”.

After a lot of DVR trouble and a lot of online searching I saw the season 2 premiere episode of “Supergirl”. Overall it was pretty good. I definitely had my doubts about having “Superman” on the show, but so I far I think I was wrong. He acutally worked pretty well on the show. “Tess Mercer” “Lena Luthor” also seems like an interesting addition to the show. “Kara” being a reporter though… Seems like she should have a different job than her cousin. Oh and before I forget “Winn” sucks. Every show doesn’t have to have some impossibly good tech person.

Tomorrow Louscious returns with Quickie and Hell’s Hunter to talk about their TV shows and some other stuff. Hope you enjoy and see ya then!
