Is the Justice League Fun?
As an avid watcher of Game of Thrones, I was excited about Jason Momoa stepping into the shoes of Aquaman. Although the character’s background remains a mystery (for those who haven’t read the comics), I liked Momoa’s gruff and comedic interpretation of the character. Not to mention the picturesque scenes that highlight Aquaman’s relationship with the water — really cool!
4. Amazon and Steppenwolf Fight Sequence
One of my biggest nitpicks with Justice League is the fact that Steppenwolf isn’t really interesting or memorable. But I really enjoyed the imaginative fight sequence between the Amazons and Steppenwolf. It was fast-paced, dramatic and well-done.
3. Superman Fight Sequence
When Superman is revived by the Mother cube, the banter between Batman, Wonderwoman, Aquaman and Cyborg is great. Not to mention the fight that erupts, showcasing the fact that Superman is as fast as the Flash and can compete with him.
2. The Flash as the comic relief
It was great to watch a DC movie that wasn’t totally drenched in pessimistic vibes and dark tones. The Flash adds a sincerity and whimsy that illuminates the tone of the film.
1. The Batman Theme
This is my favorite moment. As you might know, Danny Elfman was responsible for composing the music for Tim Burton’s Batman 1989. Coincidentally enough, Danny Elfman composed the music for Justice League — and you can just hear the 1989 Batman Theme in the movie.
It was a nostalgic shock of awesomeness and it improved the overall rank of the movie for me.
