A review in 31 words:

“Justice League”

 A review in 49 words:

A somewhat entertaining but mediocre film. If you are a fan of DC’s animated work, you might find it enjoyable enough to be worth the money spent on a ticket. If you aren’t a DC fan and want to see a movie this weekend, go see Thor. Ragnarok instead.

Final Verdict: 👎

"Thor: Ragnarok"

A review in 47 words:

10 years of universe building allows the filmmakers to dive deep into the crazy-silly aspects of a character and the worlds they visit, while still delivering the action and “hero fights” we expect. It has just as much Taika as you can Waititi.

Simply put: Fun.

Final Verdict: 👍

Final Verdict: 👍
