Superman/Batman: Public Enemies

If you ever wanted to see Batman and Superman pound the crap out of everything that moves, then this is the movie for you. I only have 1 question that seems to happen in every Justice League movie. How does Lex Luthor keep getting elected president? Somehow Luthor got elected and his first act as president, to make Batman and Superman fugitives.

Luthor started a superhuman employment service where they serve the US government. Any hero who refuses will be arrested. Obviously Superman would never join forces with a man who has tried to kill him countless times and Batman is Batman so he would never join up with Luthor.

Luthor puts a 1 billion dollar bounty on the duo and then the all hell breaks through. Every villain imaginable comes after them. The bad guys aren’t a problem, but the heroes that Luthor now employs are the deadliest to the duo. Captain Atom, Power Girl, Major Force, Captain Marvel and Hawkman all joined the US government and are trying to bring them in.

The problems only get worse as a meteorite is on a crash course for Earth. So besides fighting a smorgasbord of other supers, there is a meteorite on its way to kill everyone.

This was a very action packed movie that well worth the watch. The only problem I have is with Luthor getting elected….again. This is a storyline in many Justice League stories that doesn’t make any sense to me.

Besides that, loved the movie. The plot wasn’t so deep, but that was because of the constant action scenes. I give it a 4/5.

Now This Is A Villain!

I am so pumped for the new Star Trek movie, mainly because of the villain. Benedict Cumberbatch plays a sadistic renegade captain bend on destroying the Federation and all who support it. I haven’t spoiled the movie by reading about it; I’ve just watched the trailers so far.

Cumberbatch’s character is everything we fear.  He is intelligent, has the crew, has the weapons and has the intent to do evil. Just hearing his opening speech in the trailer gives me chills and wishes this movie would just come out already.

“You think your world is safe? It is an illusion. A comforting lie told to protect you. Enjoy these final moments of peace. For I have returned to have my vengeance. So, shall we begin?” was one of his many chilling quotes throughout the trailer.

He seems like the Joker, but in the future. Hopefully Benedict will get the same recognition that Heath Ledger got and receive an Oscar for his performance. I will be writing a full review on the movie when it comes out on May 17th.
