DC Continuity Issues











So with Batman v Superman out of the way and Civil War coming up, people can't help but compare and wonder why is DC so late trying to catch up? What if I told you this is nothing different then what happened before?

In the late 80's early 90's, Tim Burton's Batman was the best comic book of all time and what did DC do to capitalize? They made cartoons! Batman the animated series is still to this day considered one of the best cartoons ever and for good reason, it simply rocks. Marvel witnessed the success of Batman and started cranking out cartoon show after show with such titles as Iron Man, Fantastic Four, Hulk, X-Men, and Spider- Man.

Starting to sound familiar?

Marvel wasn’t satisfied with just raining down shows on the happy geeky masses, it decided to bounce around characters from show to show; Spider- Man started to appear on X-Men, and vice versa. Now it was time for DC to catch up, and catch up they did. They came out with Superman, Batman beyond, and the Justice League amongst others. In my opinion, for that time, DC did it better. Unlike Marvel they used a single character as the driving point to bring the various groups together. It worked out beautifully for those shows because they were in one shared universe. From Batman to Justice League with all other tie in shows they gave us one giant story. Marvel at the time was nowhere near this complexed, again characters had some brief appearance but that was it.


Let's jump to 2005, Marvel learning from their cartoon mistakes and the tragedy of signing away rights to certain characters decides to do what DC did, but do it with movies. We all know the story from here, Marvel creates a movie universe, make billions of dollars, branch off TV shows, and create a giant movie universe. DC's problem now is far more than catching up, but trying to keep up. First the Dark Knight movies are another universe. Man of Steel wasn't a good starting ground, it's separate from its TV shows, and I feel as if they're cramming in everything they possibly can into the next movies.

Batman v Superman wasn't the bad movie that everyone claims it to be. Did the movie have problems? Yes, but it was what we the people wanted. DC playing keep up is nothing new to us.  It’s just that now it's on a silver screen scale. Will it be as good as Marvels? No, because Marvel wears the crown. They had this plan years ago and they are a unit. What DC fans have to realize is that they need to give DC
enough time. DC will eventually be back on top with hopefully a good one character base story that they can build to a solid group film. If not, they can just make another Batman can't go wrong with that.

Valerian and the city of 1000 planets(A Salty Review)

By Corey Floyd This summer we have been hit with a lot of movies as usual. But one of them I had so many questions about. This movie was Valerian. It’s based off a graphic novel. The film was written and directed by Luc Besson the mind behind The Fifth Element, Taken series and Transporter series. With a stellar trailer with beautiful visuals, you would think this was a cinematic slam dunk right?   While this film is very heavy with beautiful CGI visuals that tell a narrative without words when the main actors step they drag this film from the depths of space to a crappy SYFY movie. Our main character  Major Valerian is played by Dane DeHaan. Most people should remember him from The Amazing Spider Man 2 as Harry Osborn and Andrew Detmer from the hit film Chronicle. His co star is Cara Delevingne. She was the woman who played the Enchantress in the universally panned but financially successful Suicide Squad. I have a few problems with these two that affect this movie in a big way. Despit…

Not a Single Potato Chip was Eaten! Thoughts on The Netflix Death Note Adaptation.

By Luiggi Cavanna
Let me start with that this is not so much as review but more of comparison between the Netflix original and it’s source material. For a review go check out our local movie critic, Corey Floyd, he wrote an insightful review on this movie. Now let’s get on with this train wreck.
Two will go in just one will come out... LET’S GET READY TO RUMBLE!!
I’m going to say this, if you like the manga/anime, you are going to HATE this movie! This is coming from a guy that wrote a blog about how we should give the live action adaptation a chance and that we shouldn’t hate before it comes out. Well it is out now, so we can hate on it.
L: “Man this movie is ASS!”
Ok! Let's start dissecting this ugly specimen by comparing the characters of the movie with their anime counterparts. What better place to start than with the main protagonist Light!
I’m going to need a drink….. And I don’t drink!!
Oh boy this is going to be something! The Light from the source material was an incredibly smar…
