The LEGO Batman Movie was an amazing movie to watch and look at. The animations were incredible, and the movie made the Legos look like they were fighting in real life. The LEGO Batman Movie began with introducing Batman as a lonely billionaire who gets praised by many but loved by few. Throughout the movie he pushes everyone he meets away to protect them but ends up learning the value of family when he fights Joker and his evil army from the Phantom Zone. I had an amazing time watching this because it has action, adventure, soul-searching, and life lessons.  I recommend this movie to many

The fifth season of Gotham has some of my favorite episodes in the series. Gotham Season 5 was the aftermath of Jeremiah Valeska detonating bombs across Gotham. Now there is no way out of Gotham and there are only a few GCPD officers left to protect the city against Penguin's army, Scarecrow's crew, Riddler’s broken mind, and the other villains who carved up territory in Gotham as well. In this final season you can see how James Gordon saved the city from the break of destruction and how Batman was born. I had an amazing time watching the last season of Gotham, but I did not want it to end

The fourth season of Gotham was amazing and engaging to watch. Although many people say they did not like this season, I found it enjoyable and fascinating. This new season of Gotham is different from other seasons, but every season has its own unique form which makes it amazing. In the fourth season of Gotham, Penguin takes over the city and licenses crime to gain the citizens of Gotham’s attention. Detective James Gordon knew that the Penguin had to be stopped so he went to the Falcone family for help. Little did Gordon know that when he asked a gangster to rival in a war with another

The third season of Gotham was my favorite season out of the series. This new season has magnificent action, unraveled mysterious, intense rivalries, and betrayal. Gotham season 3 begins with James Gordon quitting the GCPD and becoming a bounty hunter to stop the monsters that escaped from Indian Hill. Bruce Wayne discovers a secret court that oversees Gotham’s “Judgement” which states that the city must burn before it can be rebuilt and lastly, we get introduced to a key villain, The Riddler, who teams up with the Penguin only to find out that Oswald was responsible for some horrific event

The second season of Gotham is filled with an interesting and complex storyline, amazing action, and suspenseful mystery. After the end of season 1,Oswald Cobblepot takes control over Gotham’s underworld as Bruce Wayne continues to investigate his parents’ murder and discovering clues at a toxic warehouse under Arkham Asylum named Indian Hill. Many small aspects from the first season make their way into a major role in this season as we get introduced to a few new characters and also get introduced to members of the “Maniax”. In the start of Season 2, Oswald took control of the underworld

The first season to start the TV show introducing Batman’s home, Gotham, is outstanding. I like that the first season introduces every character that would aspire to be the next major villain against Batman. In this TV show it shows the humble beginnings of every character we know that has faced Batman. Gotham begins with Bruce Wayne’s parents being murdered in an alley and introduces Detective James Gordon and Harvey Bullock who take the case. Throughout the season you see Bruce Wayne’s eagerness to find his parents' killer, Jim Gordon’s anger for the corrupt GCPD while hoping that it will

To me Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice was a complex movie because I first watched it when I was 10 years old. It took me until I was 14 years old to understand everything in the movie and once, I finally understood how Lex Luthor was planning everything then I understood why Batman and Superman fought. This movie starts with Lex Luthor placing pieces of evidence and setups at crime scenes for Batman to find. Bruce Wayne, Batman, assumes that Superman will turn evil, so he prepares. Superman continues on Lex’s trail which leads him to having to fight Batman.

I read this book for a school project and ended up liking how DC Icons focused on how these main anti-villains and heroes came to be. When I read the first chapter of Batman Nightwalker I could not put it down because it had a suspenseful grasp on me. There were so many clues and mysteries to whom the nightwalkers were led by but with every chapter it felt astounding to read. I read that book two times since I finished it the first time on a weekend; I did not completely understand it so I read it again. It had an impressive mystery plot and suspenseful storyline that kept me engaged in it and

I am not naturally drawn to graphic novels but am quite willing to dabble in them. And in doing so I’ve discovered gems like Will Eisner’s A Contract with God, David Small’s Stiches, and Guy Delisle’s Shenzhen. Each is non-fiction, intriguing, and surprising in its delivery.  Yet, at the start, I was still skeptical of Batman. I mean, it’s still just a comic book, right?


As usual, I quickly realized I was making the same mistake I always make with graphic novels—charging through and not studying the pictures. They matter. In fact, the pictures often make the point. You have to slow down and
