I was thinking out loud back in April, 2017 on the Twitter. I started throwing some images together. It was too good!
Is it time yet? Feels like it is.
DKR turned 30 last year. MK is 65 now, and better than ever.

It was something that had been haunting me that week. But not enough to write about it.
Then in January ’18 I finally had a look at Justice League. Oh my. 😬 😰 😱 😳 🤪 😵
From all of the yelling online during 2016-17, I knew DC Films could be doing a lot better. I decided to have a look at the first five films they released (2013-17) and chart audience and critical sentiment. The Dark Knight Rises is included for context. Check out this graphic and then join me underneath.
Now let’s play a game called “imaginary studio head”. You can play along at home – and in the comments (please do).
Contrary to popular belief, most of us filmgoers aren’t ‘Marvel fanboys’, or ‘Team Marvel’. When we pay our 13 bucks at the theater, we’re not looking for a DC movie to fail. We just wish the new DC films were better. Like a whole lot better.
