    Justice League

    ★★★★

    Justice League is here, and I loved it! I have liked all of the previous entries in the DCEU, but I think this is the first one to truly nail down all of the characterization. Most importantly, in this one Superman feels 100% like Superman. He smiles, and he is good natured.

Even as they are doing horrible things, they are able to make the audience root for them. This one doesn’t really bring anything new to the table, but it enjoyable and entertaining.

I hope we see more Marvel films like this.

This one is a little bit different type of found footage movie because it uses a documentary as a framing device for the footage. This immediately gives the audience an explanation as to why the footage is edited which most movies of this type really have no logical reason for. This also allows for exposition to presented in…
