What I'm Watching: WB Edition




FistFight:





Synposis: " Ice Cube and Charlie Day star as high school teachers prepared to solve their differences the hard way. On the last day of the year, mild-mannered high school English teacher Andy Campbell (Day) is trying his best to keep it together amidst senior pranks, a dysfunctional administration and budget cuts that put jobs on the line. But things go from bad to worse when he accidentally crosses his much tougher and deeply feared colleague, Ron Strickland (Ice Cube), who challenges Campbell to an old-fashioned throwdown after school. News of the fight spreads like wildfire and ends up becoming the very thing this school, and Campbell, needed. "


I love Charlie Day. I also love Ice Cube. Both actors are absolutely talented and have a lot of strengths. Comedy is one of those strengths. So put them both together for a comedy and I'm in. From what seems to be inspired by 3 O' Clock High, I walked into this movie hoping for a good laugh and that's what I got. Sure, there were a few moments in the film that dragged on but for the most part, it was a fun movie. Charlie and Ice Cube played off each other so well which, being polar opposites in every possible way, which lead to hilarious situations and gags. Some fun throwbacks to Ice Cube's previous roles and rap career also find themselves into this movie but not in a "holy crap, they just had to shoehorn that" kinda way.

This feels like the kinda movie I'd include in an all day comedy marathon and could go on to become a cult favorite among comedy fans. I certainly hope more people will check this out, as it is worth your purchase.



DC SuperHero Girls: Intergalactic Games:



Synopsis: " Super Hero High is facing off against Korugar Academy in the Intergalactic Games, but Lena Luthor takes advantage of the gathering of Supers to enact her villainous plan. "

DC SuperHero Girls is one of the latest in the series of animated series and movies garnered to a younger audience. This show is mainly targeted at young girls, in the same vein as She-Ra or Sailor Moon. Which is a pretty fun concept, considering how many women are in the DC Universe who don't normally get their own spotlight. So far, this series and line of merchandising has become very popular with not just children but adults as well. I've met fans of all ages who enjoy it because of it's Saturday morning cartoon throwback feel and carefree style. I know if I was a kid when this debuted, I'd be watching it and enjoying it.

Even better? I'm an adult who watches it and enjoys it.

This feature length movie is a fun addition to your DC Comics animated collection and as juvenile as it can be at times, it still has a tone that sets it apart and reminds you of how fun super fun comic characters used to be and how enjoyable they still can be, all while bringing the kid out in all of us!


Wonder Woman: 



Synopsis: " On the mystical island of Themyscira, a proud and fierce warrior race of Amazons have raised a daughter of untold beauty, grace and strength Princess Diana. When an Army fighter pilot, Steve Trevor, crash-lands on the island, the rebellious and headstrong Diana defies Amazonian law by accompanying Trevor back to civilization. Meanwhile, Ares (the god of War) has escaped his imprisonment at the hands of the Amazonians and has decided to exact his revenge - intending to start a world war that will not only last for centuries but will wipe out every living being on the planet, starting with the Amazons! It is up to Princess Diana to save her people and the world by using her gifts and becoming the ultimate Wonder Woman! "


 A rerelease of the 2009 animated movie, which became an instant favorite and classic among superhero fans. Until 2009, Wonder Woman didn't have her own feature to shine. She was relegated to appearing on Justice League or Super Friends cartoons through the years while others like Batman and Superman had their own series. For years fans had been clamoring for her own series or movie and finally, we were treated to it. Wonder Woman was at her finest and showing what made the character so great: brave, strong, bold, and sympathetic. Wonder Woman finally got the spotlight she truly deserved.


For fans who missed out though, have the opportunity to make up that mistake by picking up this rerelease with awesome cover new art! With great new featurettes, as well as a sneak peak for the upcoming Harley Quinn and Batman feature as well (which, judging by the trailer, looks absolutely hilarious) .

Features include:


  • Featurette – What Makes A Wonder Woman: For 75 years, Wonder Woman has resonated with audiences because of her loving nature and quest for truth. Hear some of her biggest fans and fellow creators discuss how her qualities have crafted her into the icon we know today. This featurette is about ten minutes long.
  • Sneak Peek – Batman and Harley Quinn: Sneak peek at the next DC Universe Original Movie, Batman, and Harley Quinn, featuring the talented creators and voice cast. This comes in at being nine minutes long.
  • Creative Team Commentary: Scene and film analysis by producers Bruce Timm & Gregory Noveck, director Lauren Montgomery and screenwriter Michael Jelenic.
  • Featurette – Wonder Woman: A Subversive Dream – A definitive look at a psychologist’s dream, and the rich history of one of the pillars of DC Comics. This featurette is about twenty-six minutes long
  • Featurette – Wonder Woman: Daughter of Myth – This revealing documentary explores the archetype and tradition of the female DC Comics Super Hero. This enjoyable featurette is again approximately twenty-six minutes long.
 If you're a fan of superheroes and are looking for a good way to prepare for the new live action Wonder Woman movie, this is a must own. Solid film, superb animation and writing, great features, and a perfect addition to your shelf.

  1. Second time in the past week I came across a 3 O' Clock High reference! I thought my friends and I were the only ones who loved this movie. The main reason I went to see Fist Fight was because of the 3 O' Clock vibe I got it. Great Review.

  3. First Fight was a great movie! I didn't went to the cinema and I regret it very much, because movie is hilarious. And I think watching it on a big screen could be even better. And, unpopular opinion: I didn't liked Wonder Women. It's silly and copy of the Pocahontas Disney movie. Ugh. By the way, if you ever was wandering about rev translation services reviews, you can easily find it there
