Movie Review: The Bad Batch

The- Bad Batch Header

The Bad Batch
Written & Directed by Ana Lily Amirpour
Cast: Suki Waterhouse, Jason Momoa, Keanu Reeves, Giovanni Ribisi, Jim Carrey, Jayda Fink
Annapurna Pictures | Neon Films
Rated R | 115 Minutes
Release Date: June 23rd, 2017

In 2014’s A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night, writer/director Ana Lily Amirpour showcased her unique style, blending genres while maintaining a minimalist approach. Her Iranian vampire/spaghetti western film earned international acclaim, but also garnered a lot of reviews uttering the phrase “style over substance.” In her latest film, The Bad Batch, she adheres to all of these traits, positive and negative, again. The Bad Batch is at times brutally violent, at times wonderfully poignant, and all together completely bizarre. It’s one of those films where it ends and you kind of just sit there pondering for a few seconds as the credits roll. What did I just watch? Did I love this movie or hate it? The one thing that sticks with me is what I wrote mid-film, “This is like if Mad max f*cked The Neon Demon.”

Spoilers below.

‘Justice League’: Danny Elfman To Compose Score
BAADASSSSS!   |  

Danny Elfman

Now that Joss Whedon has taken on the responsibility of completing production on Justice League in time for its release this fall following Zack Snyder‘s departure from the movie due to a death in his family, he has brought on the always amazing Danny Elfman to compose the score for the much-anticipated DC Films blockbuster.

The hiring of Elfman comes just as Whedon is about to commence with the filming of additional scenes in London. Obviously this isn’t Elfman’s first time creating original music for a big-budget superhero movie; his score for Tim Burton’s first Batman in 1989 captured the film’s madness, melancholy, adventure, and Gothic atmosphere perfectly and continues to influence composers to this day. He also created the themes for the first TV series of The Flash, which aired for one season from 1990-1991, and Batman: The Animated Series.

Justice League Aquaman Jason Momoa

It’s very easy to get excited for a film like Wonder Woman, especially with the positive reception it has been getting as of late. And the same goes for Justice League, the mega-ensemble featuring some of the greatest DC heroes of all time. But since its production start date announcement, we know next to nothing about Aquaman. He’s one of the few characters to be introduced in Justice League, but getting his own standalone feature after it.

However, unlike Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Suicide Squad, and Wonder Woman affecting the events of Justice League, Aquaman will take place after Justice League. Find out more on this story below.

Zack Snyder Talks Vaguely About Superman’s Return In ‘Justice League’

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Image 03

A world where the Justice League exists without Superman. It’s something we’ve all seen before whether it’s in the comics or on the small screen. But now Justice League, the big screen adaptation of the superhero ensemble, will present that idea to the audience.

The Man of Steel (Henry Cavill) has been missing for the better part of the marketing campaign and has not been seen in any of the released footage. But there is an explanation for all of that, and while Zack Snyder is not likely to spoil how Supes returns specifically, he will indulge those wondering with a few vague comments. Check out what he had to say about Superman’s absence and return in the full story below.

So after a long-awaited eight months of anticipation, Warner Bros. has dropped the newest trailer for Zack Snyder‘s Justice League. It’s not as though we didn’t see this coming. After all the studio had made the announcement about the upcoming trailer on Thursday through a series of short vignettes. Now, we are finally seeing the final cut of the trailer for the DCEU ensemble film everyone has been waiting for. It’s Batman (Ben Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Moama), The Flash (Ezra Miller), and Cyborg (Ray Fisher) all together against strange winged-creatures, the very ones we saw in Bruce Wayne’s Knightmare sequence in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

‘Justice League’ Teaser Spotlights Jason Momoa’s Aquaman; Full Trailer Coming Soon
eelyajekiM   |  

Justice League Aquaman Jason Momoa

For some DCEU fans, it has been a long frustrating eight months since the release of the first Justice League trailer which dropped during SDCC last Summer. Since then, Warner Bros. has released Suicide Squad and dealt with a myriad of bad publicity surrounding The Flash, The Batman, and the entire DCEU as a whole. Despite what has been said about Wonder Woman, the first female-led superhero tentpole looks very promising, and Matt Reeves will be directing The Batman – a film which star Ben Affleck looked like he had no interest in directing in the first place. They are even courting Matthew Vaughn to direct Man of Steel 2 or an untitled DCEU film.

Now Warner Bros has announced that they will soon be releasing a new trailer for Justice League, and judging by how it is focused on Aquaman (Jason Momoa), we might be getting a lot more of them. Check out the teaser for the trailer here below, along with the newly released teaser poster.

Laurence Fishburne as Perry White in Batman v Superman

Normally an ensemble superhero movie is the culmination of all the major characters’ stories that have appeared throughout the cinematic universe. Obviously the bigger superheroes will make it in, but some supporting characters make their way in as well. But one of the characters that won’t be appearing in Justice League, despite being in two DCEU films, is Perry White, confirmed by the actor who plays him, Laurence Fishburne.

The actor also confirmed a few things about the rivalry between DCEU and Marvel. Check out what he had to say below.
