Justice League should have been the pinnacle for superhero team up movies, but it's incredibly uninspired.


    Pros:

    - Henry Cavill's is extremely Superman-y in this, which is extremely refreshing
    - Gal Gagot is always a pleasure
    - Ezra Miller is definitely the highlight and I look forward to seeing what a solo Flash movie is like
    - Aquabro was enjoyable
    - When Danny Elfman's Batman theme came on I think I peed myself a little
    - That moment when Flash is running and Superman's eyes shift and he looks directly at him was a pretty cool moment
    - I did like both mid-credits and end-credits scenes

    Cons:

    - CGI is fucking awful
    - I feel like because Ragnarok is still very fresh in my mind, seeing that beautifully bright and lively Kirby world thriving makes everything about Steppenwolf/Apokolips much more insulting. What a offensively disgustingly bland portrayal of what could have been a truly epic threat.
    - Because Snyder and Whedon both have such distinguishing styles it makes the tone so much more jarring and noticeable? Like "Yep, that's Whedon dialogue" or "Yep, there's Snyder's self-serious/slow-mo tone."
    - Speaking of Snyder, that "subplot" of the family trapped during the Parademon attack served no purpose.
    - CGI mustache removal
    - Fucking Batman making quips.
    - Nitpicky, but how can Batman catch the Flash while he's running?

    I feel like we didn't earn this movie at all. Now the brand of Justice League is tainted and feels like a rushed Avengers ripoff. I didn't hate it, but if that's the best I can say then what does that tell you? Batman/Superman/Wonder Woman deserve so much better.
    Runs at super speed falls at normal speed.

    I think actually that was Whedon's addition. Maybe something to akin to Cap saving those people in Avengers?

    I honestly think Whedon dumbed the movie down/made it safer. I'd love to see an Ultimate cut from Snyder.
    HUNKA HUNKA!

    Who knows, it reminded me of the subplot with the court house witness in BvS. Still dumb.

    I found a ton of clips on youtube, a shockingly amount including:

    Spoiler:
    supermans resurrection/fighting with the JL, superman punching steppenwolf, ww fighting steppenwolf, both end credi scenes with supes and flash and lex and deathstroke


    seeing the digitized mustache in the scene was a bit jarring haha. Luckily it lasts a few seconds.

    Feeling like Katrina with no fema
    Like Martin with no Gina
    Like a flight with no visa
    First class with the seat back I still see ya
    In my past, you on the other side of the glass

    You know, I honestly agree with this. I do feel that Whendon did make it safer. BUT, I genuinely don't think that a full-fledged Snyder version would have been any better. It would have been visually darker, a lot more self-serious, longer, and we would have gotten an unbearable Junkie XL score.

    Junkie XL is good when paired with someone.


    And unlike Marvel movies not taking place in space, at least there is a score.

    This is ominous and generic. His music in BvS is awful, which is a shame because I tend to like Hans Zimmer and I liked his work on Man of Steel. I think I've said it before but the choir in the score for BvS sound like they're being burnt alive.

    It's like Junkie XL wanted to copy every single Marvel movie's score.
    HUNKA HUNKA!
