Something about a powerful thing that was taken, and a conspiracy. I guess.

Terrible. Simply terrible. A bad setup to the universe, a whole lot of shit pulled out of thin air.. generally bad writing and a bad mood. Bad pacing. Everything about it is terrible. Do not watch.

A pretty princess turned-warrior leaves paradise to hunt the god of war during World War II.

It's got a slow pace, good mood and is not your usual superhero flick. The pretty girl really makes this movie, even making up for the ugly male lead.

A day-walking vampire halts his crusade against them, forming a truce to hunt an even worse monster.

An adequate movie, with an acceptable amount of over-the-top nonsense. Definitely worth watching for fans of the original. Easily stands the test of time.

  • Properly titled Blade II

Born as the survivor of a bitten-pregnancy, a part-vampire "day walker" continues his crusade amidst one of their ranks' power play for leadership.

A classic movie, before the whole superhero genre got entirely out of hand. It's an unfortunate rewriting of the original comic book, but it does well with what it has. It's blunt and stiff, yet entertaining.

It has only a couple of moments of technology which feel old, otherwise it has held up well.

A distracted surgeon crashes his car and is left with ruined hands, but he's brought into a magic order who defend the planet and universe and stuff.

A decent movie, although fluffy and of narrow scope.

Some bad mutants superhumans are assembled to fight others.

Basically forgettable except for Harley. Has bunches of characters nobody has heard of or cares about.

Leftovers from a previous movie come back to haunt The Avengers, who tear themselves apart because they lack conflict resolution skills.

Another superzero movie. Only good if you're not just into this genre, but into this series. Other movies set in this universe must be watched to appreciate some of this one.

Batman v Superman - Dawn of Justice (2016) poster

Yet another bland superhero movie.

A privileged white nerd-boy never got his patriarchy membership card, so he sets up the most powerful being on earth by using astonishingly advanced alien technology because astonishingly advanced alien technology isn't good enough and he has to take down competitive patriarchy because something about good and god and evil and stuff.

This movie makes no fucking sense on so many levels, I may as well give it that fuckmenazi description. Characters don't make sense. Motivations don't make sense. Lots of action that didn't need to happen, or happened in the wrong way.

A character that gets whipped up out of nowhere, who only the comic book nerds will vaguely recognize.. and not even understand. Does anyone think all the little comic book nerd boys always wanted to be a woman-superhero? Uh, no. So not popular. So having no explanation, she was dropped in as a deus ex machina. A hot awesome one, but terribly-written and disruptive.

Furthermore, the appearance of The Flash (who I had to look up), made no fucking sense whatsoever. It wasn't even a deus ex machina, it was entirely unnecessary and confusing fluff.

  • Properly titled Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
  • Yes, it's properly titled Batman v Superman, because American theatre-goers know neither "versus" nor "vs.".

Vampires are real, and a secret council, whose formation is never explained, support a good-vampire on her mission to mercilessly slaughter bad-vampires in search for the worst-vampire who she was told killed her father.

For a while I was quite captivated by this movie. It was good in every respect, but it seemed to take a turn for the worse half way through, and just kept sliding. Overall it's good, but elements of it are too similar to other famous movies for me to really find it interesting, especially since those elements are rushed.

It's decent enough to recommend for a one-time watch.
