Dragon Ball Super Broly Movie: Review

Does Dragon Ball Super Broly Movie live up to the hype? Is it worth watching? My answer is absolutely! (Minor Spoilers)

PROS

One of the biggest highlights from DBS Broly movie, is the beautiful animation it presents. This is probably the best looking Dragon Ball anime movie I have seen. What works really well for the animation is the fast pace action that will reminisces the Dragon Ball Z days. The next highlight about the movie is how well they take their time retelling the Sayians history and what happen to planet Vegeta.

They do retcon a lot of things for Broly and Bardock. Broly and his father are cast out from planet Vegeta, because of how dangerously powerful Broly is. He is on a isolated planted and becomes more like a Tarzan character which works a lot better for the character because we see him have a normal conversations.

Bardock has a Jor-El vibe an is more of a family man. Goku’s origin is recon to emulate Superman’s origin. It does work a lot better in my opinion. I did wanted to see more of the sayians and planet Vegeta. We do get a lot of cameos from old DBZ characters.

The main characters in Dragon Ball Super Broly is obviously Broly, but also Vegeta. Broly’s dad uses his son yo get revenge for what Vegeta’s dad did to him. Goku is more in a supporting role which is a good thing.

Some of the new characters like Cheelai who is Broly’s Jane in the movie. I found her an Lemo entertain and work well in the movie.

CONS

The movie is extremely cheesy. This is probably the most cheesiest Dragon Ball movie I’ve seen since Dragon Ball and Friends Return. Some of it works while most of it is over top an eye rolls.

It is easy to get pass but it wasn’t necessary to be that cheesy. The second is there is a fan service or candy eye moments for the character Cheelai, which takes some of the momentum away during fight scenes with Gogetta and Broly. It is probably the worst part of the movie in my opinion.

The last con about the anime movie is it feels like two different movies when we go back to flashback scenes with Broly and the Saiyan history. There is pacing issues with the movie.

OVERALL 8/10

Dragon Ball Super Broly is a great film with lots of familiar Dragon Ball Z moments that takes me back to the good old days with the action. If you are a long time Dragon Ball fan it’s worth watching.

The Reign of the Supermen Movie: Review

The next DC animated movie was release yesterday in theaters, and this morning on digital streaming. Does the follow up sequel to The Death of Superman animated movie continues the awesome momentum? (Minor Spoilers Below)

PROS

The highlights for The Reign of the Supermen movie is Lex Luthor, Lois Lane, Steel and Superboy. The movie does a fantastic job balancing Superman’s world and the Justice League. It does not come off like a Justice League movie at all an focus on our two main characters Lois Lane and Lex Luthor. For me I haven’t en Joyed much of Lex Luthor incarnations since Michael Rosenbaum, and Clancy Browns take of Lex Luthors. Rainn Wilson, is a great voice casting choice for Lex Luthor as he bring a similar tone from Clancy Browns take of Lex Luthor.

He is very charismatic and keeps the audiances invested into the animated movie. How he handles the aftermath of the loss of Superman shows he’s not always bad as he appears. The movie does take inspiring elements from the reign of the Supermen comic book story but introduced a new story that people will happily accept.

Some of the story reveals in the Superman animated sequel feels like the writers took what Zack Snyder wanted to do in the DC live action Films, but make it a trillion times better present in animation. Fans will know what I mean when we see some big reveals in the animated film that will ties into the Death of Superman.

The animation is presented fantastic, and has a bit of the Superman animated series vibes, which is good for audiences. There’s a lot of heart in the reign of the Supermen animated movie. I think people’s opinion on Superboy in this animated sequel will be very positive, if anyone had mix feelings about this Superboy version of the character.

CONS

The Reign of the Supermen does have a bit of pacing issue with a little side story that involves two characters that nobody will care for, and it will hurt some of the pacing in this animated film.

OVERALL 8.8/10

The Reign of the Supermen does continue the momentum of The Death of Superman animated movie. It has a lot of heart, action, and tons of fan service for Superman and DC Comics fans. Make sure to see the ending credit scene as it gives you a hint as to what this Justice League incarnation will do next after The Reign of the Supermen story is over. DC Animation continues its long success with its animation films.

Young Justice season Three Premiere: Review

After a very long wait Young Justice animated series is back! Not only is it back but the DCU app release the first three episodes of Young Justice season Three, and there is a lot to sink in from all three episodes. (Minor Spoilers)

PROS

What’s different about season three compared to the past two seasons, is that Young Justice is now for adult audiences. The story this season is very dark in terms of hardcore grotesk violence displayed, because it is not afraid to show it. This season from the first three episodes centers around Brion Markov who is best known as Geo-Force from Batman and the Outsiders comic book series, and brother of Terra from New Teen Titans comic book series.

Episode one begins with the start or birth of The Outsiders very similar to how it started in the Justice League comic books with one of the founding members disabands, because of how the Justice League is not doing enough to end kid meta human trafficking.

Our focus characters for season three’ s first three episodes is Dick Grayson(Nightwing), Conor Kent (Superboy), Artemis (Tigress), and Jefferson Pierce known as Black Lightning. In the first episode we do see favorite characters Kaldur as the new Aquaman, and Megan as Miss Martian.

Episode one introduced a big surprising reveal on who is Robin, because it is not Damien Wayne. A nother reveal will be Robin’s new relationship with another well known sidekicks, and a long time fan favorite relationship from the series that turns into a special moment for both characters. These reveal and moment will please long time fans of Young Justice series.

What works really well for season three is the first three episodes tells one giant story that treats episodes as act one, two and act three as the conclusion to one story. This works out very well because the animators and story tellers for Young Justice are able to focus on certain characters and flesh out how the tone of season three will be.

We do see small cameos of a few other characters from milestone comics, and a well know character from the New Teen Titans that did not make her debut until season three.

CONS

There isn’t much cons I can find from the first three episodes, because all three of the episodes take there time in telling one story. I could nitpick about episode two and three with the opening as a commercial simaler to message adds for people to report meta human trafficking, but it does not hurt the momentum of the first three episodes present.

OVERALL 10/10

The first three episodes are all a hit and gives long time Young Justice fans some awesome moments, while introducing new characters that will be a key part in future episodes of season three. All lot the stuff we’ve seen from trailers and art design all paper in the first three episodes which means we have seen nothing yet but just the tip of the iceberg. Young Justice season Three will be on the DCU app every Friday at 9AM eastern time.

Gotham Season Five Premiere: Review

The long awaited final season of Gotham tv series premired tonight on Fox. The first episode did not slow and continued the momentum season four left off from. (Minor Spoilers)

PROS

Season five takes place a few months after season four’s finale with the first episode feeling like it is presented on a giant scale with tons of action all over the place in the episode. The No Man’s Land in Gotham is in full effect and everyone or anyone is trying to adapt some how to live through it.

Episode one does not slow down and we get to see just about everyone from the main cast not name Jeremiah, are up too since the bridges have been destroyed.

We do get a surprising death from one of the long time characters on the show, that wraps up a conclusion to an ongoing fued with another character since season two. The premiere episode of Gotham makes it clear to be wrapping up long time threads to give audiances a full conclusion to their story in season five.

CONS

The episode does feel very cramp with tons of characters to give you the what they’re up to now moment. Just like from past season premieres, which is nothing new if you have been watching Gotham. That being said there are moments that I feel could’ve been waited in the next episode. This being a short season five, I believe we will have tons of cramp characters that will have audiences in and out from the show in each of the future episode building to the series finale.

OVERALL 7/10

The season five finale premiere is not a let down if you have continued to be watching the show and kept an open mind that this is a different take of Batman’s mythology. The first episode does not disappoint with the action an wraps up a long time fuid with two characters.

What should make a great Superman film

It is uncertain on when we will see another Superman film, but fans like myself want to see the character and his world done right in his own movie. Here are something I believe Warner Brothers needs to think about when they decide to do another Superman movie again.

No Controversy or Question Morals

Snyder and Nolan’s Man of Steel film created a lot of moral questions for Superman in his own film. The decision for Chris Nolan to go in this direction with the story was something that was new and distant from the Richard Donner Superman film. Using similar formulas from Batman Begins was a huge plus and should’ve worked for the Man of Steel, however Nolan allowed Zack Snyder to have Superman kill in Man of Steel destroyed the positive momentum for Man of Steel. It divided many hardcore Superman fans to either like this movie or really hate it.

I believe the next Superman movie should not have the characters morals question. In my opinion Clark Kent sees himself as a human being who wants to help people. His adopted parents raised Clark Kent to be a good man whom surrounded him with a lot optimism,who teached him sentimental values, hard work, and all of the apperciating things life has to offer. He was raised on a farm and around nature so seeing all the good positive things earth’s life has to offer helps Clark insight in wanting to protect earth and the life he loves with in it.

Being a hero is about putting your own needs aside to help, prevent, or save someone’s life. Superman embodies all of those things with hope, and doing the impossible. To whoever does the next Superman there needs to be a clear understanding that Superman does not kill ever in any of his movies, and values all of life in different forms.

Superman needs to be a fun, positive character that he is meant to be. The next Superman movie should not shy away from making him the big blue boy scout audience are very familiar with. Superman is supposed to smile when saving people because it is his signature to the people he give hope to when he saves them. It’s one of core parts of Superman’s character.

Trust the comic book Source Material!!!

The problem with getting a great Superman film is that the people in Warner Brothers do not trust the main source material when they are making their story for a Superman movie. They will take elements from the comic books, because they know they have to please fans who read the medium, but never trust the full source material when trying to get the heart of the character or his mythology presented on screen right.

The two things Kevin Feige has said as to why Marvel Studios are successful with their comic book films, is that they trust the main comic book source material, and second they trust their audiences. Kevin Feige’s goal is creating or presenting the marvel characters on screen in a exciting way for audiences to share the same excitement a person would read a Stan Lee and Jack Kirby comic book for the first time. This is something Warner Brothers is slowly but starting to understand after having success with Wonder Woman and now Aquaman movie.

Trusting the comic book source material for writing the characters elements is important, because the audience wants to see the character like Superman they have been reading or is fimilar with in tv come to life on the big screen. The production on Superman Lives, the movies like Superman Return, Man of Steel, and Batman V. Superman ignored the source material for the character. That is why we haven’t seen a successful Superman film critically and financially successful since Richard Donner Superman film in 77. This is a very important thing that needs to change in having a great Superman film.

Comic Books that should be influenced for the next Superman movie.

The first source material any movie writer should read in helping audience to connect with Superman is the John Byrne’s Man of Steel series. It is a perfect take on Superman who is very humanizing by have Clark Kent as the true character of these stories and having Superman be the symbol of hope he created because he wants to help people with the powers he has.

Man of Steel series kept Clark parents alive and it was a smart move, because anytime Clark needed advice he went to his parents like any young or older person would when they are trying to resolve or express what is going on in their lives. It shows how humanizing Clark is as a character, and that he does not have all the answers.

The Villains

The two other source material a movie writer must read to get the antagonist right is Geoff Johns Brianiac and Brian Azzarello Lex Luthor story. Both of these stories. Present great antagonist narratives for Lex Luthor and Brianiac as to why they are doing the things they do as antagonist characters. In order to make a great Superman film the antagonist needs to carry the story and presenting difficult challenges for Superman.

What makes Lex Luthor the perfect antagonist for Superman is that he is jealous of him for taking the attention away from him. Lex to me needs to not only be the smartest and intellectual person in the world but he also has to have a intimidating physical presence. Lex views himself as the perfect human in the world an believe he has mastered everything life has to offer, and wants to help mankind exceed their expectations as people until Superman changes that narrative for him.

Lex Luthor is very important in the mythology of Superman. He needs to be taken seriously and not goffy like Kevin Spacey and Jessie Eisenberg potrayls of the iconic character. In the current world we have a lot of powerful capitalist businessman who are intimidating, and selfishly expect to get what they want like the Lex Luthor from John Byrne’s Man of Steel series.

That version of Lex Luthor needs to be fleshed out in the next Superman film. I think the two best adaptations I have seen from the Lex Luthor character is Clancy Browns take of Lex Luthor from the Superman animated series by Bruce Timm and Paul Dini. The other adaptation is Michael Rosenbaum’s Lex Luthor from the Smallville series.

No More Origin Story

We have seen Superman’s origin story in so many mediums it is over used and people know his origin story to heart. It is best that the next Superman movie has the character established in Metropolis and to the world. So when we see him on screen he is doing all the things we want him to do in action. We live in superhero world with audiences who do not want origin films anymore.

How about in the beginning of act one we see Superman saving people an stopping a monster like Parasite or small level kind of villain like Livewire. Doing a Superman action scene right away is a great way to get the audiences their attention immediately.

The general audience are paying to see Superman, because they want to see him do all things that makes him the greatest superhero ever. If Krypton is use in the movie it needs to have a payoff to serve the story that does not involve Superman origin story. Brianac history with Krypton can be a great example of how to use Krypton in a different way besides retelling Superman’s origin.

Make Superman Physically Vulnerable

I believe in order to have a great Superman story he needs to be physically vulnerable at times when going up against super powered beings, he struggles to left giant heavy objects, and feels pain at times when his limits are tested by his rogue of villains.

In Bruce Timm and Paul Dini’s Superman animated series they made Superman Phsically vulnerable then people are use to, because they had to find ways present great storytelling. I believe that same formula could work in movies as well. I think characters like Mongul, Matello, Bizzaro, Parasite, Livewire, and even Toyman (if executed right) could find ways to make superman feel pain or physically vulnerable to help the story move forward.

Superman can not be crazy stupid powerful like it was seen in Justice League film, or Christopher Reeve Superman series, because there is no story for audiences worth going to pay to see in theaters.

OVERALL

I believe a Superman movie can be done right when producers and director can trust the comic book sources material and the movie audiences. Fans all over social media and internet wants to see another Superman film because we all believe the next Superman can be done right. Superman is the greatest superhero of them all, and he needs to have a successful movie that all fans and general audience wants to see.

What to expect to see going into 2019

Only three days left of 2018 before bring on 2019. There are a lot of things from the world of Comic Books, from Films, TV, and new streaming services are coming next year. As we will get things from Star Wars and Anime going forward into 2019

All things Marvel

2019 will be a giant year for all things Marvel comics in different mediums. The highly anticipated Avengers End Game film will wrap up over ten years of comic book movies story telling by Kevin Feige and Marvel Studios. On top of that we will learn or an idea of the future of Marvel Studios films after End Game. Epically with how the aftermath of End Game will set up Spider-Man: A Far from Home, the sequels of Black Panther, Doctor Strange, Gaurdians of the Galaxy, and Captain Marvel. With new announcements of Marvel studios movies.

Not to mentioned Marvel tv series Agent of Shields, with Cloak and Dagger season two, will be back in a big way, because Agent of Shields is the show that is always heavily effected by the direction of Marvel studios movies going to.Unfortunately I expect Netflix to cancel both Jessica Jones and Punisher because of the launch of Disney Plus that will be release sometime in the later of 2019

Marvel has a lot of big tv series going into Disney Plus streaming services such as Tom Huddleston’s Loki mini series, with other mini tv series such as Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch, and Winter Soldier and Falcon series. Marvels tv and movie series of films will continue it’s success in both tv and movie mediums.

Marvel Comics has been mixed by from their comic book line besides their star wars comic book line, but next year Marvel will be introducing their next giant event crossover

Fox and Disney merger

Accoding to Kevin Feige who was on a recent interview on Playback which is a podcast interview on variety.com, who recently had Marvel studios Kevin Feige who did confirm they can’t think about X-Men and Fantastic Four from six months until now, after the Fox merger is fully complete. I believe thats because X-Men:Dark Phenoix film will be release by June and by July of 2019 will be hearing tons of rumored ideas of what Kevin Feige and his team of writers have for these iconic teams in the MCU.

Plus the future of Deadpool movies, I am sure we will be hearing a lot about on what will happen with that character and the future of Deadpool movies. That will be a giant question because Ryan Reynolds owns that character.

Marvel Comics Books

It has been a interesting year in Marvel Comic Books. A lot of the big name writers from Marvel have left to do something else and every year the Marvel comics have change many directions every year. Marvel Comics has a giant crossover story event coming that will change the comic books of Marvels superheroe world again. Keep and eye on the world of Spider-Man, Captain Marvel, Fantastic Four, and Wolverine who I believe will be giants in 2019 of the comic book medium.

DC Comics and Warner Brothers

DC Comics and WB had a great rebounding year in all of their mediums after the 2017 Justice League film. They currently have the number one financial movie in the world with Aquaman. That’s great for business for Warner Brothers, because they will continue to make more DC Films in the future. 2019 I belive will be a bigger year for them because they continur to become better with everything they do. Their next DC Film will be Shazam this April. That is getting lots of positive and excitement after its first trailer was released at San Diego Comic-Con.

They are taking a giant leap with introducing a DC Comics elseworld movie in Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker film that is set to be release in October. The film has giant excitement around it, because it’s staring a great actor Joaquin Phoenix playing the Joker in his own movie, with a great actor in Robert DiNero and actress Zazie Beetz playing supporting roles in the film.

The Birds of Prey is rumored to start filming either January or early February with casting almost fully completed. Wonder Woman 84 already wrapped filming an is in post production. I am sure we will be getting tons of official photos from both films to build excitement.

I would tell everyone to pay attention to Matt Reeve Batman movie news as its Rumored to start filming by summer of 2019 since the script should be completed by the end of 2018 or early 2019. 2019 is Baman’s 80 years of existence and I expect we will be getting a official confirmation if Ben Affleck will be returning as Batman in Matt Reeves Batman film sometime next year. The news for the next Batman film will be heating up big time going into 2019, because that is the most anticipated comic book film to be released.

With DC Films going into a positive direction with Walter Hamada leading the direction as President of the DC Films for Warner Brothers, DC Films will be in great shape in years to come. DC Comics launch their streaming service last September and has slowly getting better but has yet to hit globally.

They have a giant hit with Titans from audiance and critics. The app should be evolving next year an will continue to get better with Young Justice, Doom Patrol, the highly anticipated Swamp Thing series. The DCU app will be firing on all cylinders in 2019 and should be a great ride to watch. The Arrowverse just ended 2018 with a successful crossover with elseworld and announce Crisis on Infinite Earth crossover next winter of 2019 that has a giant expectations and excitement for comic book fans. Greg Berlanti continues to succeed for DC and WB in their TV department.

HBO and WB will be introducing The Watchmen series that is rumored to be a sequel to The Watchmen graphic novel that has comic book fans excited to see what Damon Lindelof does with Watchmen. Greg Berlanti also will have Batwoman her own series within the Arrowverse sometime in the spring. Time will tell to see how it unfolds.

DC Comics books

DC had another successful year in the Comic book medium with Doomsday clock, Tom Kings Batman title, Scott Snyder’s Justice League and Dark Knight Metal series, and Brian Michael Bendis Superman stories have been a huge success in comic books.

How Doomsday clock unfolds in 2019 will be big to DC Comics future in comic books. With Batman celebrating 80 years of history they will be doing something big for Batman and his world. They have Detective Comics issue 1000 that will introduce the villain Arkham Knight from the Batman games. It will be a big year in the comic book medium for DC Comics.

Star Wars

I think Star Wars for 2019 will be either sink or swim for its entire franchise, because of the divided reaction to Last Jedi. I expect we will be hearing tons of Star Wars news going into Star Wars celebration in May of 2019 to please an insured Star Wars fans. I am sure more news of highly anticipated The Mandalorian tv series will be getting official news an information released. I expect a first trailer for The Mandalorian to be release at the celebration with the first full trailer of Episode Nine.

I believe the celebration is when we will get offical announcements to future Star Wars films after episode nine, with more news of the Clone Wars, with Cassian Andor series, and future t.v. series on the Disney Play app. It will definitely be a under the microscope year for Lucus Films, Kathleen Kennedy, and Disney regarding all things star wars.

Star Wars in Comic Books

If you haven’t read any of the star wars comic books from the Marvel line, I highly recommend to read them. The Darth Vader title written by Charles Soule is a must for all star wars fans, because it deals with an early Darth Vader after the events of Revenge of the Sith. The title goes in more character depth with Vader and his old painful wounds as Anakin Skywalker. The writing on the title is spot on.

Independent Comic Book news 2019

Pay attention to all things Spawn film announcements and news I am sure will happen next year. The last we heard a bout Spawn was from Todd McFarlane on the Collider channel. He mention they are still working on what the budget will be for the movie, an confirm Jamie Foxx and Jeremey Renner are set to be in the film. I expect we will have a release date and when it will go into full production.

Hellboy will be back in theaters with a reboot movie it will be either sink or swim for the movie because this is not the Hellboy movie audiences wants.

Power Rangers had a great successful year in the Comic books line thanks to Boom Comics. I am hoping we hear some big news for Power Rangers as the Shattered Grid storyline was a giant hit for the franchise series. Hopefully we have great news from Hasboro on their future of Power Rangers.

ANIME

I haven’t talk much anime, because I’m watch or read in small doses. I expect we will hear the future of Dragon Ball Super after the Broly movie is out. Netflix is working on a live action Cowboy Bebop which willbe mixed because of their past take on Death Note.

My Hero Academia season four will be release sometime next year and it will be interesting to see the direction the series goes. Heavy rumors of Bleach getting a revival series, because of the manga series is completed, and the finical success to the live action film might bring it back. I hope we get great news on Bleach, because I want to see the Blood War storyline. I know the Bleach live action sequel is in the works. It’s possible more news of all things Bleach will come to light in 2019.

Overall

I expect 2019 to be a giant year for all things pop culture. Hopefully 2019 will be bigger and better then the successful 2018 year we had in pop culture. My new years resolution is to always to do better than what you did last year. Happy New Year’s everyone!!

Titans Season One: Review

Now that all eleven episodes of he first season of DC’s Titans is out for beinge watching. I wanted to do one final review of the first season, and talk about the highs and lows for season one. Minor Spoilers!!!

PROS

DC’s Titans came off with a lot of uncertainty, because of the horrible first reaction trailer at San Diego Comic-Con, but at New York comic con with the audiences at the con, having a chance to see the first two or three episodes those negatives turn into a lot of positives by the con audiences.

Each episode builds momentum, and leaves audiences wanting more after each episode ends, because the writing and direction connects with the audience perfectly. This series is not like any of the CW superhero shows, because they do not pass aggressive in creating drama.

Dispite introducing a rated R take of the DCU in Titans, the hearts of the characters we love from the comic books are presented perfect on screen. The highlights of season one for me that stand out are Teagan Croft’s Rachel/Raven, and Brenton Thwaites Dick Grayson/Robin. Both characters are the center for this season.

Other characters and performance highlights from season one is Anna Diop’s Kory/Starfire, Conor Leslie’s Donna Troy/Wonder Girl, Minka Kelly’s Dawn/Dove and Curran Walter’s Jason Todd/Robin.

In my opinion eight out of the eleven episodes presented on season one is why the show is successful. Those episodes are Origin, Hawk and Dove, Together, Donna Troy, Jason Todd, Dick Grayson, Asylum, and Doom Patrol.

If you are a fan of Dick Grayson and Batman episodes Jason Todd, Donna Troy, and Dick Grayson episodes is where Batman fans will find a lot of Batman Easter eggs and references of all things Batman mythology.

Greg Berlanti, Geoff Johns, and Akiva Goldsman did a fantastic job world building, character building, and do not shy a way by confirming and referencing many well known superheroes and villains whom exist in the series. I want to give a lot of credit to the writers of the show who cowrote and work on the series.

Some of the best action scenes are in Hawk and Dove, Origin, Together, Jason Todd, and Dick Grayson. The action fights are well done and are executed perfectly.

Fans will need to stay for the season finale credits, because two iconic superman characters make their first appearance on Titans and are expected to be fleshed out in season two.

I would like to say Akiva Goldsman who is infamously known for the story and writing of Batman and Robin movie redeems himself in Titans. In the series it is shown through his character development with Dick Grayson. Akiva wants audience to recognize he spent a lot of time understanding the character that fans know and love.

CONS

The violence is overkill and can be not necessary. Origins, Hawk and Dove episode and Asylum episode are examples of overkill violence that was not needed for Titans. I understand why Greg Berlanti, Akiva Goldsman, and Geoff Johns who wanted to show how different this is from the CW series but it was unnecessary.

What I wish this series did would give us more of Ryan Potter’s Gar/Beast Boy. I found the episode Hank and Dawn to be a filler episode that focus on a lot of backstory of Hawk and Dove that was not needed for Titans, because it does hurt the pacing and momentum of Titans, because Donna Troy episode left audience on a giant cliffhanger.

The Hank and Dawn episode felt rushed an was not enough in my opinion to flesh out Hank and Dawn characters because they haven’t been seen since episode two. The episode was not needed at all.

The Koriand’r episode title is very missed leading if fans of Starfire are hoping to see Anna Diop/Kory fleshed out in this episode base on the title will feel disappointed, because the episode is Teagan Croft’s Raven centric.

I also want let audience be aware even tho the Dick Grayson episode is a pro it is also a con as welk because the season finale is short and leaves a giant cliffhanger that will disappoint a lot of audiences and will hurt the momentum of Titans.

Greg Berlanti, Geoff Johns, and Akiva Goldsman over think a lot in the direction of Titans, as they build things up for audiences who have invested time for their show, but struggle with paying things off. It was announced at San Diego Comic-Con that there would be thirteen episodes of season one, but obviously their was a lot of over thinking and with a leak episode twelve pics of the real finale called Raven, that was not announced on the DCU app will disappoint audiences, and question their direction for the series in the future.

Some of the effects can be a bit meh at times, and is easily recognizable. It is a tv series an dispite the big budget some of the effects can be done better if they take their time. I do wish they would give creater credit to Steve Ditko who is responsible for Hawk and Dove, Marv Wolfman and George Perez for Raven, Beast Boy, and Starfire.

The creators for Doom Patrol should be added in their episode. Bill Finger and Bob Kane does get a credit present display in the season finale, because of the amount of Batman mythology is used, but The names of the other creaters are important, because there would be no Titans series or a world with out them.

OVERALL 8.2/10

Dispite the no payoff finale, and the overkill violences. Titans is a series that has a lot of heart and captures the spirit of the world of a DCU in a rated R form in Titans. The series takes a lot of inspiration from The new Teen Titans, 60’s Teen Titans, and Young Justice animated series that will find ways to get fans interested.

Greg Berlanti continues to find success yet again for DC Comics and Warner Brothers in the t.v. department with the help of Geoff Johns and Akiva Goldsman writing. Titans is series I recommend for all audience and comic book fans to beinge watch during the holiday break.
