Looking back on my first viewing of Justice League, I stand by that it's an entertaining film, if severely lacking in layers like its predecessors, that's getting unnecessarily raked over the coals, and when Zack Snyder's flourishes truly shine through, it's amazing. BUT, it's also clearly a product of studio compromise, and some of its worst moments are those clearly bearing Joss Whedon's stamp, including one lame gag recycled from another movie and another that's just plain indefensible. And I may have been overly charitable when I said the mustache cover-up wasn't as conspicuous as feared.

‪I still wish Incredibles 2 was accounting for the passage of time since the last one, but come on... WE FINALLY HAVE AN INCREDIBLES 2 COMING.‬

A gent on Twitter and staunch (non-toxic) defender of Man of Steel and BvS sums up Justice League thusly: "Best comparison I can make for Justice League in relation to MoS/BvS is that it ended up being more Return of the Jedi than Return of the King. I still find it very enjoyable but we all wanted a film with the level of theme consistency of the first two entires." Yep, this.

damn, too bad. I wanted the great heavier tone and weight BvS had

‪Good first episode for The Punisher. But then I said that of the last couple Marvel Netflix outings too, so we’ll see.

With the hot-and-fresh good times of JL taken care of, I'm hitting up a revisit of Green Lantern: First Flight to celebrate the League's "missing member".

I hope the next Justice League movie doesn't go straight for Darkseid. Brainiac would be too much of an Age of Ultron move, and he should be Superman's next solo villain anyway. Maybe Despero would make a good in-betweener.

To hell with Rotten Tomatoes, JUSTICE LEAGUE is just a damn good time. True, the villain and his plan are a mere shell of plot convenience (and he looks like a giant action figure), visually things go a little off the rails in the final act, and an extra 10-20 minutes to space out certain scenes (including some obvious missing trailer moments) could have done the pacing some favors, but it's the heroes you've come to see, and it's the heroes that kick this movie's ass. Whether you've loved or hated Superman's journey in particular over the last couple movies, you'll be hard-pressed to not enjoy where things wind up.

Seated for the 6PM show. Got a mini-poster and everything. So I’m ALL IN. Let’s rock.

My final rundown of the DCEU heading into Justice League: 1. Man of Steel is the best thing to happen to Superman since the '96 animated series; I will die on that hill and carve that shit on my headstone. 2. Batman v Superman is overlong and overambitious, but at worst guilty of taking its title characters outside their comfort zone. 3. Suicide Squad is an atonal, discordant mess reeking of knee-jerk compromise, but not without enough merits to warrant watching and enjoying without guilt. 4. Wonder Woman is the best debut cinematic adventure one could ask for in a character whose big-screen due has been such a long time coming - and I don't care what anyone says, I frickin' love that guitar riff. That's my two cents. PEACE OUT.

Man of Steel is an really good movie. I will argue that until the day I die too, bro.

I still can’t wrap my head about claims David Thewlis as Ares isn’t intimidating. The whole point of his role on Fargo this year was showing polite and terrifying can go hand in hand.

I have to watch season 3. All I remember about his character, from mostly the tv spots, is his teeth.

Ten minutes into watching Wonder Woman again and it's clear what a bunch of hooey this outrage is over the Amazon costumes in Justice League. Some folks just want a reason to kvetch.

I haven't seen JL yet so can't make a complete comment, but at this point it's clear that that shit is absolute insanity. These women complaining about it (and a few men) look like absolute idiots. It's disgusting really, how they're jumping on this whole thing, with a 'women > men' mentality. It's feminism done wrong.

from the facts that have been presented (that of course are completely, laughably and immediately overlooked by these people) the JL picture is only them in their training outfit, or a picture of them in the past, and there are photos of them in the future where their outfits align more with the stuff we saw in WW (though from what I'm reading we also see some of the "skimpy" outfits in WW too don't we? I can't recall). Regardless I don't think it sexualizes them at all, despite having less clothing. If anything it makes them simply more intimidating to show their muscle and their confidence in their ability, like the Spartan's in 300.

Ah well, can't believe I'm getting worked up by this, clearly they've shown that they (or the vast majority of them) are too fatheaded to even look at facts and just want to fight the fight of 'women > men' rather than true feminism and equality.

Not to mention one of the actresses, Brooke Ence, praises the newer costumes herself and said they were even more empowering. Plus Patty Jenkins has her own quote on the record about how empowerment and sexuality aren’t mutually exclusive. These clowns think they’re speaking up for her, when really she’d be the first to tell them to chill the fuck out.

Walking that wonderful final leg of the road to Justice League.

Criterion edition of Silence of the Lambs? Well hot diggity, there's my excuse to finally own that movie.

Atomic Blonde is a bit of a slog between action sequences (but HOT DAMN does it deliver in that category) and it goes a little too far out of its way for a twisty ending, but there's more than enough charm from its cast and stunning neon cinematography to keep things interesting.
Weapon X updated his STATUS: 3 days ago

A really fun thought occurred to me just now as I watching Atomic Blonde: Assuming they ever get around to casting more of the Batman universe for future DC flicks, Naveen Andrews and Sofia Boutella would make a great pair for R'as al Ghul and Talia.
