    [BLACKOUT]That guy is as important to Superman story as Rick Jones is to Hulk's, and one meets such brutal end, while the other never enters the realm of film?[/BLACKOUT]
    I'm disappointed in both studios.

    I haven't seen it either, but I don't mind sitting through spoilers.
    Anyway, spoilers are tagged for your own protection.

    @shauner, I think Joker was pointing out that the Batman Ben's is heavily influenced by (DKReturns) is one where he retired, not that Batfleck was retired.

    We all knew the thread was coming... what I didn't expect was that it'd be like shooting fish in a barrel!

    Yeah it wasn't really a challenge. It never is when you have the facts on your side.

    I ended up enjoying the film overall, mainly due to the third act. Normally I can't stand big over the top CGI stuff in third acts, but for some reason it works for both Avengers and BvS. I think the novelty of seeing the team-up of the JLA characters is a big part of that. Loved the interactions between Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman.

    The first two acts are pretty much a disaster of storytelling and editing. The actors all do a very good job with what they are given in the script. I'm around a 6.5 or 7 out of 10, but I need to see it again to really get a better idea of how I feel about it.

    One of my favorite things about it was seeing Bill Finger finally get credit!

    I cant even remember any real interactions between the Trinity in the final act other than a couple of moments.

    I'm pretty speechless. It really did not have much cohesion as a film. I will have to do a more thorough review tomorrow after work.

    I will say that I really liked Affleck, but seeing him kill so many thugs left a real bad taste in my mouth. But I'm blaming all that nonsense on Snyder. That guy has to go.

    Sorry for my delay in response to BvS. Bad internet. Anyway, I totally loved it. 9/10. I'm baffled by the hateful response. And Affleck was sensational.

    Snyder at this point is the equivalent to what Avi Arad was to the Spider-Man franchise. Only with less power.

    Happy for you :up:

    It's even sillier when you think of how Daredevil is as a series.

    It's as bad as the paranoia that the critics are being bribed to hate the movie. Yes I am serious there was actually some fans who seriously thought someone was paying all these critics to hate the movie.

    The levels fandom sink sometimes to ease their minds surprises even me.

    They need to update the audience rating. It is in the 70's now.

    It's a movie with good scenes but an average film. I think 30 percent is too low and feels like people are ignoring the good in this movie. But 90 percent is just as ridiculous and feels like those people ignoring the filmmaking, storytelling and shutting their brain off just a little. Maybe some folks liked Batman killing or liked Lex Luthor (Lex was beyond annoying to me)..I guess that's fine. But there's major issues in this movie just like Man of Steel, so I personally find a really high score as laughable as a really low score.

    Sorry to interrupt the BvS hatefest, but I just watched this Fatman on Batman, about the secret origin of The Joker, and I found this FASCINATING.

    Did you like the movie, Travesty?

    Seriously though, I walked in with no expectations and really liked it.

    I'm sad for Affleck and Snyder though, copping such a merciless grilling. That sucks, because I don't think they deserve it at all. Oh well. That I have no control over.
