    The things that are going to drive me crazier than the negative reviews are the positive ones that can't compliment the movie without taking a swipe at the Marvel movies (see: Deadpool reviews)

    The two reviews I saw seem to agree that BvS' biggest sin is that it's just plain boring.

    Once a colony of bats literally lifts Bruce Wayne up in the air as a Christ-like figure, you’re probably watching a movie that takes itself pretty seriously.

    Holy crapbaskets.

    Gotta hand it to them, dull was not a complaint I expected to see in reviews over and over.

    I guess they really bought into their whole BS about making SUPER IMPORTANT MOVIE.

    I like Man of Steel! (For crying out loud, I even like Batman Forever.) But Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice just lands with a big thud.

    Those are... some really low standards BvS is failing to meet. Guess I'll skip this one.

    I just remember leaving the theater from Man of Steel feeling like I had been assaulted by sound after the last 45 minute long shitstorm of a fight. It wasn't exciting, it wasn't compelling or tense or memorable. It was like being punched in the goddamn head over and over again by a jet turbine.

    it's literally one of the first things that happens in the movie and it's hilarious how terrible it looks

    i didn't pay money to see it and my ire for the movie grows with each passing hour

    it's just such a mess in every way

  • wirehead26wirehead26 Registered User regular
    IGN gave it a 6.8 out of 10.

    It sounds like a lot of the fan theories for the movie are much better than the actual movie.

    On the one hand, I'm getting tired of everyone in my extended friends group asking me if I'm going to BvS, if I've got tickets already, if I want to see it additional times with them so I can be their guide to all the nerd lore that they might not pick up on.

    On the other hand, it means I have an opportunity to tell them why I don't intend to see it, and why I strongly recommend that they not see it either. This plummeting Rotten Tomatoes score is sure helping those arguments.

    Realizing lately that I don't really trust or respect basically any of the moderators here. So, good luck with life, friends! Hit me up on Twitter @DesertLeviathan

    Giving a bad review is a god dang art unto itself. You have to keep focus on it so it's not just saying increasingly hyperbolic insults. Those are the spices not the dang meal.

    Roger Ebert's movie reviews of movies he hated are some of his best work, imo. The man was really great at tearing down movies that upset him in a way that was both critically sound and satisfyingly brutal.

    Reviewers and critics are at their best when they cover the excellent or the execrable.

    Being dull might be one of the worst outcomes, because that might stifle the entertainment value of some of the reviews.

    Though based on what I've heard, there seems to be plenty of terrible to go into.

    WB, you should know you fucked up when you can't get me to see a movie with Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman in it

    I saw Deadpool opening weekend, and I don't even like Deadpool

    Thomas and Martha Wayne have been killed so many times in so many different media that their deaths may as well be one of the stations of the cross

    I'm not sure this vaguely pretentious simile really works

    Makes sense, really. With movies that are really bad or really good, there's a lot to discuss. With a really dull movie, what can you really say? What's there to analyze in a competent but uninteresting movie that doesn't do anything remarkable one way or the other?

    Oh my god thank you for pointing me to this
    Young Clark: So I’m kind of thinking I should use my powers for good, to help people and stuff.

    Pa Kent: HOLY SHIT NO. You must never reveal your powers to anyone! People will figure out you’re an alien! The government will take you away? Got it? You must never help anyone ever.

    Young Clark: Even if it’s a schoolbus full of children about to drown?

    Pa Kent: Especially if it’s a schoolbus full of children about to drown! You just sit there, and watch them drown, one by one.

    Young Clark: That doesn’t seem right.

    Pa Kent: And if for some reason someone else saves the bus, IT IS UP TO YOU TO PUSH THAT BUS BACK IN THAT LAKE AND MAKE SURE THOSE CHILDREN DROWN.

    Young Clark: Wait, what?

    Pa Kent: YOU ARE GOING TO BE A BEACON OF HOPE WHEN YOU GROW UP, CLARK, A BEACON OF HOPE THAT WATCHES CHILDREN DIE WHEN HE COULD HAVE EASILY SAVED THEM.

    Movies that are only competent are a fucking nightmare to review.

    Seems like BvS didn't even quite clear the bar of more of the same. I felt like Man of Steel was still fairly well made despite the whole Not My Superman, and missing logical plot sense issues that otherwise ruined the movie.
    Part of what made it look so good in trailers. Individual moments were strong, good music, good looks..often. New one has looked pretty iffy in most trailers. Wasn't sure if that was because I already experienced Man of Steel and that colored my view of BvS.

    I haven't really read reviews yet, but it seems the general opinion is that Wonder Woman is one of the few good things about the movie?

    That makes me happy for some reason

    That it all works to the extent that it does is due to its undeniably sweet depiction of a close-knit extended family whose members truly care for and help each other. It's cinematic wish fulfillment in this era of broken families and far-off relatives who keep in touch via social media.
