On my curated list of things, I’d like to do, and close to the very top, was getting tickets to watch a Dolby movie. Over the years and the last couple of months, The Prophet has been stoking the fire and educating me on the evolution of superheroes and associated villains. (I even have a Wonder Woman blender bottle now for protein shakes.) Unfortunately, I still confuse characters that belong in the Marvel Universe versus DC Comics. But I do believe that after tonite I might have it finally figured out.
With The Prophet being down from UF for Thanksgiving, it was the perfect opportunity to Fandango our way over to pluck our buttocks down and park at the movies for a bumpy ride courtesy of “Justice League.” The adrenaline immediately kicked into high gear before the actual movie started while watching the previews. Reclined chair. Volume pumped up to the max. Halloween chocolate and water for our journey. And it was a doozie.
After enjoying Gal Gadot in “Wonder Woman” in early summer, I was definitely looking forward to connecting with the power and kick-ass female that she was bringing to life once again. And being a big fan of “Game of Thrones” and missing the presence of Khal Drago, I was also anxiously anticipating and waiting for the appearance of Jason Momoa as Aquaman. Personally, I can do without Ben Affleck as Batman, but Ezra Miller was a joy to behold as he flitted from place to place as The Flash.
Despite some less than stellar reviews by the critics, I thoroughly embraced the entertainment value of Justice League. There are times when we go to the movies to ponder, be intellectually stimulated and emotionally moved. Tonite we were entertained from start to finish. And for sure, looking for the next movie that would be worth the extra cost to be moved around and blasted with bass in Dolby…maybe the next Star Wars?
