Tired of Marvel? Try Valiant!

Good day, everyone! And an especially warm welcome to my fellow comic book fans. Are you like me and feel like Marvel (the comics, not the movies) are geared more toward teenage hipsters than toward you? Don’t answer that; I just want to get your head in the right place. But, if you are in need of a reprieve from one of the Big Two, were you aware that there is another superhero universe out there, largely sailing under the radar? Welcome to Valiant Comics.

Throwback Thursday: Batman v. Superman Dawn of Justice Review

This weekend’s podcast is about Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, so it seemed appropriate to share Julia’s original review from seeing the movie in theaters. For more in-depth discussion of the movie – read, us tearing it apart – listen to Episode 6 of the Comparative Opinions podcast!

Guys, it’s not as bad as everyone says. However, I have a few contributing factors to why I might think that:

  • I haven’t seen Man of Steel, so I have no comparison to that movie.
  • I love Zack Snyder, and his partnership with Hans Zimmer made me really excited for the movie. Definitely worth it.
  • I’m Team Wonder Woman. I wanted to see a female superhero in DC who was a total badass. The whole Batman and Superman thing was a bit secondary to me.
  • I had very, very low expectations of the movie. Honestly, I was hoping it was at least a 5/10. Low expectations helped.
  • I’m currently on vacation back home and saw this at an Alamo Drafthouse, drinking beer after a couple of margaritas. Alcohol definitely helped.

Instead of doing a huge analytical review, I’m going to focus on a few points that stood out to me. There’s enough reviews out there tearing this movie apart or trying to defend it. This review is coming from someone with a film degree who isn’t a huge Superman fan, had low expectations of the film, and was mildly… okay, definitely, buzzed the whole movie.
