I had the opposite effect with MoS. The first time I thought I liked it but I felt so confused. After a second time and a third viewing I just got more and more dissappointed.

I was very slightly disappointed wit the BvS fight length and the fact that it was only one fight (after reading I guess too much false informations in the last year, lol) but otherwise the 2nd viewing only tightened everything I loved on the first view

I've seen it three times now. The first time I loved it, but there were things I missed. The second viewing helped me catch so much. Because I knew the plot I was able to easily tie everything together and see the little hints that Snyder dropped all throughout the film. It wasn't quite as joyous as seeing it for the first time (nothing ever is), but it did help me appreciate the film more.

Also, I saw it for the first time by myself at a pre-screening. The reactions at the theater were great, but I got home to see all the negative reviews, so I questioned whether or not I let my love of the characters cloud my judgement on the quality of the film. Seeing it with my friends the next two times, none of whom are big fans like I am, and seeing how much they all enjoyed it as well, that really helped me share my enjoyment.

I have a friend who saw it twice (he thought Man of Steel was OK, but absolutely loved Batman v Superman), and he agreed that it was better on a second viewing. We discussed the film for two and a half hours after leaving the theater.

liked it the first time.
loved it the second time.

by then you know the basic beats and can really see how stuff gets set up... for example the senator scenes with lex are just great when you know what he does.

I STILL have to get out for a second and third viewing. Swamped with things and money is tight because of it.

Saw it for the second time and I enjoyed it even more. The story was much more fleshed out than first impressions and there were several story beats I couldn't wait to get to again. That is evidence of a good movie for me.

First viewing: 7.5/8
Second viewing: 8/8.5

Liked it more with a second viewing

Score went from a 3/5 to a 4/5

I think it had alot to do with appreciating the film we got, instead of what I wanted. I had 3 years to build a movie in my mind of what I expected this to be like. Disappointment was the only possible outcome.

I'm fairly certain this is one of the biggest issues why people aren't rating it higher. Some probably will refuse to even watch it a second time because they are worried they might change their mind. Who knows.

So after a third time, I guess some of the excitement/buzz has worn off and I'm actually starting to feel disappointed with it in terms of Superman's characterisation and the general tone of misery

How much would you rate it now compared to the other times? The movie does end on a very sad and somber mood, which I can understand not being the best as a Superman fan.

It was...weird for me. The first time I saw it, I liked it. The second one, I loved it. The third one, I still loved it but I saw many flaws I couldn't see before. I think I was influenced by the many reviews and reactions I've seen. I still love it, but man it has flaws.

Weird that that same thing happened to me the third time. I now care for Superman more than I have ever cared.

How is that possible? Superman got the most out of this movie!
Yes, random people will shout that Batman was the story, but was he really?

It all starts and ends with Superman. Throughout the whole movie they hate him and want him gone. In the end, when he sacrifices himself for humanity, everyone understands they need Supermen. He even gets a military funeral with all the honours.

His death means so much in this movie as he not only affects how people see him, but also Batman and Diana's lives. Both decide to change their ways and even focus on finding the others and starting the League.
What more can one want from a Superman movie?

As for my viewing experience, I started with 10 out of 10 on first viewing, but this was due to all my hype.
The second viewing I got a more clear head and I set on score 9 out of 10.
Conclusion: I frikkin' love this movie and will definitely buy the Director's Cut blu-ray.

I think Zack did a fantastic job and to be honest... nobody does comic book movies like he does. I believe in his vision and I can't wait to see more from HIM.

First viewing 9/10.
Second viewing 9/10. I don't know what dark arts they used on me, but I was completely spellbound by this film both times.

I'm gonna go again.

3 viewings and it's made my top ten of the genre. The Ultimate Cut could put it in the top five!

Saw it twice. Really no strong desire to see it again.

Feel the same way about it.

One of the first CBM's in a long time that I've had no desire to view a second time, even when it hits Netflix/online.

I think i'd have given it a 8/8.5 at first, but it's gone down to a 7. I still enjoy it... but some of the love has gone.

Yeah. It's just hard not to be sad about some stuff.
