Finally saw Justice League and its not that bad.

So finally watched #JusticeLeague. It was enjoyable but generic. That's sad because it really should have been a special movie. Here are some thoughts: Pros: 1.

Comics and Their Reflection on Society

Pop Culture Uncovered

Suicide Squad Micro-Review

Went into this movie with low (very low) expectations and it was better than expected but not great. The story was pointless and totally wasted a good cast. There was plenty of action and laughs, but there was just a hollow feeling because of the pointless plot. Takeaways: 1. Will Smith shines in any movie… Continue reading Suicide Squad Micro-Review
