Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice | Movie Review

Batman v Superman

IMDB | Letterboxd | Trailer

Batman and Superman are united on screen, at last. It’s something I had long been waiting for and now that I’ve finally seen it I must admit that I’m not convinced this was the big battle they promised us. We saw them fight, we saw them playing mind games with each other, but I feel like this movie missed a few important things and did things that weren’t necessary. Be warned as I might be discussing some spoilers.

The very first part of the movie was already a bit confusing. I thought that they were trying to introduce so many things that it didn’t make any sense. The Batman origin story was done well and wasn’t too elaborate, as we’ve seen that story once before and it would be tedious to watch it again and again. Though that in combination with the other scenes that followed made for a strange start of the movie. I think they tried to set up some things too early and without enough explanation.

Watch These Trailers | Movies

Now who doesn’t love a good movie trailer? I know I do. Here are ten trailers I thought were important enough to be mentioned. Some of these are very recent, others not so much as I’ve included some of the Super Bowl trailers. Find the trailer I’m talking about by clicking on the title.

Finding Dory VFinding Dory
So a new trailer has dropped for this Finding Nemo-sequel and it looks fantastic. We get to see some of the new characters and some original ones as well. I like the explanation they gave in this trailer for the way she now remembers some things. However, I do fear this is going to be a bit repetitive as we again get to see the turtles, a dentist/doctor’s office and some scary kids.

Captain America: Civil War
I can’t say this enough, but I’m so excited to see this. It’s something I’ve been looking forward to for a long time and now it’s almost here. There’s already was a full trailer released, but this is the Super Bowl-spot. It’s got some amazing chanting in the background and has an epic feel to it.

The Jungle Book VJungle Book
In this trailer we actually get to see some other animals talk besides Scarlett Johansson as Kaa. I’m still not entirely convinced on these voices. Well, the cast is great, but it just doesn’t seem like these voices are coming from the animals. Though this iteration of Bare Necessities is amazing, I could listen to it all day.

Most Anticipated of 2016 II | Movies

2016 is a year where a lot of movies are being released. A lot is kind of an understatement really. From all these I’ve picked 20 movies that I’m excited about seeing in theatres. I have already done a first part with ten of them and here’s the second part of the list. I am really looking forward to all of these, because of their awesome trailers, plots or, if they are a sequel, the first movie in that series. Some of these don’t have trailers or posters, so I’ll add some concept art instead. These are in no particular order, because I’m excited about all of them and didn’t wan’t to pick any favourites.
