Movie Review: Justice League (Snyder’s Cut)
I tried. I really tried to like this movie. Zack Snyder’s Justice League didn’t come in with sky high expectations. I just just hoping to watch a nice long-long-long movie about superheroes and be transported for a little while. Nope. It was bad. It was so, so bad. And it was long. I think Vera […]

All Joker Performances — Ranked
There’s no denying that the Joker is Batman’s greatest foe. He’s appeared in every type of media there is and been brought to life by some of the biggest actors in Hollywood. But which performance was the best? Below is an attempt to answer that question in chronological order.
Movie Review – Joker
I have a feeling a lot of people will really like this Joker movie. Personally, I don’t understand how this film can even come close to the MCU and their best films. It’s not funny at all, like EVER, and doesn’t involve any of the Justice League members. I have to admit that we’ve had […]
Is Joker a standalone or part of the DC Extended Universe?
The Joker (played by Joaquin Phoenix), is a standalone origin story, set in 1981 Gotham City, which tells the story of how the character Arthur Fleck , a failed stand-up comedian, turns to a life of crime and chaos. The Joker is the first in a series of movies and comics DC is launching under […]
Newbie Movie Review – Suicide Squad (2016)
Surprise, Surprise. Justice League is Actually a Good DC Flick Movie Truism: Maybe going into a movie with low expectations makes it better. I didn’t bother to see DC’s highly anticipated 2016 Suicide Squad in the theaters because it was so lowly-regarded among critics and viewers alike. So I just let it slip by. Cut […]
A Happy Shazam Review – A delightful time in the DC universe (for once)
I’d heard from the rest of the RunPee Family that Shazam was a disappointing remake, even though I had big hopes DC would finally put out a fun, lithe, winsome feature, with a superhero I could have fun with (unlike Batman, Supes and the rest of the grim gang). Sadly, I waited an abnormally long […]
Do you know what SHAZAM Stands For?
Shazam is not actually a name. It’s not an expletive either, although shouting SHAZAM! sounds like one. Shazam is shorthand for various mythical gods and demi-gods who lend their immense powerful attributes to a chosen DC Champion. Do you know offhand who these mythological Shazam characters reference? Maybe you can guess. Or you might squeak […]
Movie Review – Shazam! – Great for Tweens, Less So for Adults
I’ll start by setting the context: I love action/superhero movies, but never read any comics. So, I’m basing this review strictly on how I see the movie, not how it compares to any other body of work. The Good: While I definitely didn’t like the movie, I’m sure young boys under 12 years old or […]
Is Shazam Part of the DC Universe or a Stand-Alone Film?
Rest assured, there is an actual answer here. According to every reliable internet source, Shazam is indeed set within the larger universe of the DC superheroes, at least from the ‘official DCEU starting point’ with Man of Steel, in 2013. Just so we’re all clear, DCEU stands for the DC Extended Universe. All good? Great — […]
