Alright, nerds! I have mixed feelings about this movie; for those of you who have seen it, (which is probably many of you, as it's only been out a day or two at the time I'm posting it) I'd love to hear opinions, predictions about the next movies, etc. So I'll throw in my two cents here, if y'all are interested. Two Cents (Move your mouse to reveal the content) Two Cents (open) Two Cents (close) As I said, I have rather mixed feelings about this movie. I went in rather doubtful, as it didn't get fantastic reviews in the first place, and I'd seen from the previews that there were about a thousand and four explosions. I dunno about you all, but destruction just kind of looks like destruction, and after a while, even the biggest booms begin to bore me. (First world problems, I'm aware.) Another thing I had beef with was the fact that Bruce just kinda ignored those important-looking visions he got. Perhaps they'll play more of a part in future movies, but I felt like those could've been really awesome moments in the movie if played out a bit better, and if they'd held more relevance, or he'd acknowledged them a bit more. I get that the guy's a badass, but come on... that was some freaky shit. And Doomsday. He was interesting, sure, but his story made a lot more sense in the comic books, where (I believe, it's been a while since I've read 'em) he wasn't a product of Lex Luther and Zod. Due to the fact that he contained DNA only from a human and a creature that was humanoid in appearance, what could've caused him to look the way he did? Also, wouldn't Lex's human DNA hinder his abilities and make him a less equal opponent for superman? Logically, it would make him more vulnerable to attacks other than kryptonite. However, it ought to have enabled more articulate speech, especially given that Kryptons have the ability to speak human language. That combined with the language genomes that come from Lex (who's a fucking genius) should've given us some cool dialogue from Doomsday, but instead, they stuck with the original character from the comics. Instead of creating an entirely new one, or a version, that didn't leave scientific plot holes all over the place. Call me a douche, but just... I dunno. Again, I could be totally wrong about it, but that's what's been going through my head. BUT OH JESSE EISENBERG. What a brilliant actor; he fit the role of Lex Luther PERFECTLY, and did a magnificent job portraying a villain who is aware of - and furthermore, cares about - his mortality, while maintaining a manic sense of ambition. Wonderwoman was played brilliantly as well, and I look forward to seeing more of her. I'll admit I did freak out a little when the Flash was shown for a moment, and the hype for more Justice League is already building up inside me. Overall, not my favorite movie at all, but one that I did enjoy watching. I'd say it's the type that I won't watch again, but I will watch the next ones. Alright, so that's that. Lemme know what you all think, I'm excited to hear. And for those of you who haven't seen it: shame! Go do so, now! So we can chat!
