Justice League: B+

NO SPOILERS: Batman has got a problem. Earth is once again in peril and reeling from the death of Superman, so the "rich" guy (his words) with toys needs to build a team. He knows Wonder Woman is a lock to join him. The Flash (Ezra Miller) would be a great find if he can track him down. Aquaman (Jason Gamboa) and Cyborg (Ray Fisher) need a little more convincing, but time isn't on Batman's side. Super villain Steppenwolf is seeking to subject the planet to his dark powers, and like many films of this type, the villain is seeking pieces to a powerful enigma to get exactly that, and he's not afraid to wield his electro-axe to get it. Matter of fact, there's a lot of wielding of power as if you're watching the feats of strength in a Festivus gathering in this action-heavy offering.

Sounds pedestrian, however Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) is prime as the not always amused super mother hen trying to herd all those boys with power into a team. She's clearly the one they all like best. Cíaran Hinds voices Steppenwolf with solid malevolence. Ben Affleck is once again capable as the billionaire crime stopper who's more than willing to cross some lines to get what he wants. You see the camaraderie building between the members, and it's enjoyable with The Flash providing the best nerdy comic relief. Make sure you stay until the end of the credits!

The Darkest Hour: A In "Darkest Hour,” Gary Oldman gives a commanding performance as Winston Churchill as he is made prime minister of England in 1940 as the island nation once again faces world war. He doesn't have the complete support of the crown or his own party, but what director Joe Wright shows is how Churchill had the unmistakable statesmanship that eventually galvanized his king and country. I recommend a "Darkest Hour"/"Dunkirk" movie night for fellow history buffs.  View Now
