Weekly pick-ups: Week 7!

Last Sunday I was browsing Amazon and I saw that they were having a blu-ray sale. You could pick out 2 blu-ray for 10 pounds! I searched through the selection of movies and I picked out these two!

Justice League: Throne of Atlantis + Batman vs Robin (blu-ray)

I’ve seen both films fairly recently and I thought they were pretty good so it was a no-brainer for me to pick them up.  The sale is still going on Amazon so if you want to check it out: http://goo.gl/aFNZGE

Weekly pick-ups: Week 6!

This week marks the end of the DC domination. For the first time since starting this series I’ve bought something comic related that isn’t from DC universe: crazy right? Let’s see what it is!

Poison Ivy Pop Vinyl (Arkham Asylum)

I ordered all of the Arkham Asylum pop vinyl figurines and this one arrived this week. The rest will arrive in August (I hope).


Man of Steel blu-ray

It’s really weird that I didn’t already own this one. I’ve seen it a couple of times and I enjoy it. I’m aware that people have a problem with the destruction/overuse of action in this movie but I like it.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (PS4)

A friend of mine said that this game was pretty fun so I followed his advice and bought it! I’ve played it for 2 hours and I’m not really as excited as he was. The web slinging is confusing sometimes and the combat lacks depth.  But Stan Lee is a comic book owner in this game so that’s something I guess?

Batman vs. Robin (2015) review!

Batman vs. Robin is a direct sequel to Son of Batman. Bruce Wayne and his son, Damien, try to find a way to put their differences aside and work together as Batman and Robin. But that turns out to be harder than Bruce had anticipated because of Damien’s hard upbringing in the League of Assassins. When a new force threatens Gotham, Damien needs to make a tough choice: Batman and his father or doing what he was taught when he was with the League.

Screen 1

The movie is pretty action packed and the action sequences are great and bloody. But the story is also interesting to follow but too bad that the ending itself is pretty predictable. The relationships between the different characters (both good and bad guys) are intriguing and give the movie some depth. If you are fan of Nightwing then you’re in for a treat: he has much more screen time in this film than in Son of Batman.

Screen 2


Conclusion: Batman vs. Robin is an entertaining movie and a must watch for every Batman fan. If you haven’t seen Son of Batman yet then I recommend you watch that one first because it gives Damien a little more back-story.


Score: 8/10
