Justice League


Nice reference to Gardner Fox in Zack Snyder’s Justice League.

“Gardner Francis Cooper Fox (May 20, 1911 – December 24, 1986) was an American writer known best for creating numerous comic book characters for DC Comics. Comic book historians estimate that he wrote more than 4,000 comics stories, including 1,500 for DC Comics. Fox was also a science fiction author and wrote many novels and short stories.

Fox is known as the co-creator of DC Comics heroes the Flash, Hawkman, Doctor Fate, Zatanna and the original Sandman, and was the writer who first teamed those and other heroes as the Justice Society of America and later recreated the team as the Justice League of America. Fox introduced the concept of the Multiverse to DC Comics in the 1961 story “Flash of Two Worlds!” ” Wikipedia.


Did everything go in slow motion this week or was it just parts of the Justice League? I think slowing things down is a great narrative device, but sometimes it was a bit much I thought. Still, a nice rescue scene with The Flash in Zack Snyder’s Justice League. You need to slow those moments down or else you would never see the Flash move. Personally I like actor who plays the Flash in the tv series better.


ou can hardly see him in this screencap, but that’s James Gordon on the roof played by J.K. Simmons. Every time he was on the screen I expected him to yell it was all Spider-Man’s fault. Wrong universe of course. But Smmons was such a great J. Jonah Jameson, it’s hard not to think about Jameson when I see Simmons. My favorite Gordon will always be Garry Oldman. His casting was spot on in The Dark Knight Trilogy.


A sweet photograph of Lois and Clark from Zack Snyder’s Justice League.

I loved the portrayal of Lois’ grief in this picture. Amy Adams did a great job. Just like I think Henry Cavill is a great Superman.

Zack Snyder’s view on Superman isn’t really how I see the character, but with Superman there’s plenty of room for different interpretations. And Cavill looks the part. And Superman looked bad ass in the black suit.


The fight between heroes seems to be mandatory in movies like Justice League and in the comics as well. I’m not sure how I would react when I came back from the dead. I would probably check if my comic collection still is intact! But then again, I’m no Superman. (That’s for sure.)

Anyway, nice action piece from Zack Snyder’s Justice League. But I particularly liked the scenes that came later, in which Clark is at the Kent farm talking to Lois, finding his footing again in the soil of the land. That’s what what makes Superman a great American Icon. He’s a superpowered being from far away, and yet he’s also that farm boy from Kansas, connected to nature and the earth.


Final thoughts on Zack Snyder’s Justice League: A fast improvement on the butchered version that was released in 2017 (although I don’t blame Joss Whedon for that. He was just trying to make the best out of a very nasty situation I’m sure.)
I could have done without the apocalyptic epilogue though. Especially since the other parts probably will never be made.

Batfleck was cool and clearly inspired by the great work Frank Miller has done with the character.

I love Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman en Henry Cavill was a good Superman.
I’m really not that interested in the other characters in the League, so parts of the film I got bored. Although it was nice to see backstories of the Flash and Cyborg fleshed out.

I absolutely didn’t like Leto’s Joker though.
Like I said the whole apocalyptic stuff in all these movies I could have done without.
The villains were not that interesting either. They were not on Thanos’ level nor did I really care about the mother boxes. Therefor I had the most fun watching the little scenes between Bruce and Diana, Wonder Woman in action and the resurrection of Superman.

The movie could have been a bit shorter with less slowmo, but fuck, who cares? It is what it is. And it’s a unique take on the DC Comics material.

The Snyder Cut


Finished the first hour of Zack Snyder’s Justice League. Time for a coffee break.

I’ve never been Zack Snyder’s biggest fan, but I do appreciate I director having a clear vision, so that’s why I am happy he got to finish this movie on his own terms. Besides, it’s a fast improvement on the theatrical version which was half baked.

Zack Snyder’s Justice League is probably the last epic superhero movie we’re going to see for a long time, since most of Marvel’s heroes have moved to the ‘small’ screen and since it’s clear that the executives at Warner Bros. don’t really know what to do with all the wonderful intellectual properties they own. Well, maybe they should let the directors do their job and don’t interfere with what they don’t understand.

Anyway, if this IS the last epic superhero movie, I’m totally fine with that. I think the audience is moving on. At least this guy is.

Although I don’t think I’ll ever get bored of watching the wonderful Gal Gadot play Wonder Woman.

“The Death” of Peter Parker | Reading The Complete Ben Reilly Epic Book 5 | ACG Vlog


Remember the infamous Clone Saga from the 1990s? Well, it’s wasn’t as bad as you think. As a matter of fact, I’m currently reading The Complete Ben Reilly Epic Book 5 and I kinda like the adventures of Spider-Man’s clone. Even though I know what’s going to happen in the future, the comic book makers make sure I feel for the characters thanks to their excellent storytelling-skills.

Rocky & Creed


I am cleaning out my desktop of screenshots. I made this one after watching Creed II the other week.

The Rocky franchise has been a constant in my life. I remember watching the movies as a kid. The whole family talked about them. They were a good conversation starter with my older cousins.

Later I rewatched them whenever they were on the television. The great thing about the Rocky franchise is that it never became bad. Every movie brings something new, event though they practically tell the same story over and over again.

I loved the fact that the next movie starts right where the other one ended. At least the first five movies were structured that way.

Besides all that, it’s hard not to like the character Rocky Balboa. And Stallone for that matter.

I am glad I finally saw Creed & Creed II. I really liked seeing Rocky again and how they continued the story of Apollo’s legacy. These movies are sequels and sort of remakes of the first Rocky and Rocky IV at the same time.

And it’s always good to see Sylvester Stallone playing Rocky once more. And Michael B. Jordan does a great job playing Apollo’s son.

My Plan for 2021: To Read More Back Issues | ACG Vlog

My big plan for 2021 is quite simple: to read more back issues. I’m not a big fan of the stuff that’s currently coming out by Marvel and DC Comics, so I’ve decided to go back to the past and read a lot of back issues and old series this year.

Starting with the Incredible Hulk (see this video about that) and Superman: The Man of Steel by John Byrne.

Blook


Blook is a Dutch superhero parody made by Johnn Bakker and Lo Hartog van Banda back in the 1970s. During my winter vacation I read the first album titled De supermolekuul (the super molecule).

This is a great panel.
