WHAT I LIKE?

Justice League was a sign of relief after the disappointments of Batman V Superman and Suicide Squad. Overall, it was a movie that has a consistency in terms of superhero formula. It was actually faithful to its main source. This superhero universe made a mark with its brand of action and entertainment. The plot was easy to understand and it was smoothly narrated despite the pressure of introducing 3 new characters in the universe. With its short running time, it was entertaining and engaging most of the time. I loved Wonderwoman and The Flash in the film. The action sequences were good and there were some impressive visual engineering especially some of slow-motion scenes. Generally, I am pleased and I am looking forward for the next movie in the DC universe.

WHAT I DON’T LIKE?

Justice League lack the charm and dynamism that Marvel invest long time ago in majority of their films. Because of its short running time, I feel like some of the elements were sacrificed. One of which is the character build-up of the Villain and the 3 new characters in the team. Also, how I wish the movie was less CGI-sh. There were some pretty bad visual editing. Hope they will improve this moving forward. But, I still loved Justice League.

The Accountant

The Accountant plays its audience with an interesting plot that may hit-and-miss action junkie audience and leaves a lingering feel of curioisity in the end for those silent film lovers. Yes, the movie is not your typical car-chasing and bone-crushing flick. The movie was able to combined different techniques in making you glued in your seats until the end. With a very risky take on Autism and special abilities, the film invested on Ben Affleck’s most powerful performance yet after Gone Girl. The is puzzle-thriller film was able to maximize its semi-bloated running time in telling a story behind the Accountant. It may have a lot of loop holes and loosely executed script and interpretation, but I actually find the movie entertaining as a whole. The addition of Anna Kendrick is a little charm over this dark mystery-thriller. The Accountant might have ended in a less fashionable manner but the ending justified the whole film’s worth. Well, this movie might bore some of you but you can try to look at the other side of the coin and find this interesting the least. 3.5/5 stars.
