Adventures of a Geek Dad - Justice League
I think its safe to say that, to date, the DCEU has been a mixed bag.

Wonder Woman was a home run.

Suicide Squad was a solid single.

Batman v. Superman?  Can of corn.

Okay, enough baseball metaphors.

We're here to talk about Justice League.

What should have filled me with unbridled joy instead filled me with trepidation.

I wanted, so badly for Justice League to be the movie I'd waited for since I was a kid watching Super Friends on Saturday mornings.

It wasn't.

What it was turned out to be an inconsistent outing with hurried character development and a villain straight out of a Mortal Kombat video game.

That being said, my boys have a different opinion.  They've grown up seeing their favorite superheroes rendered in flesh and CGI.  Their expectations were way different than mine.

They are full committed to the DCEU.  They rank Justice League among their favorite movies.  I envy them.

I know I've spit a lot of venom toward Justice League so far, but I didn't hate it.  Seeing the Justice League standing side-by-side on the big screen was on par with seeing the Avengers doing the same a few years ago.

Seeing the characters in the movie's stinger was even more exciting.

It took me back to Saturday morning.

The DCEU is still a bumpy ride and Justice League didn't do much to change my opinion, but I'm not giving up yet.  There was a lot to like.
