Zack Snyder's Justice League

Zack Snyder's Justice League

- ben affleck is a good batman. I genuinely believe that he is filled with enough self-loathing to dress up like a bat & beat people up for 20 years
- it unironically rocks how bad at acting gal gadot is. forcing her of all people to be the narrator of the entire lord of the rings sequence is true galaxy brain thinking and we must all respect it
- it would’ve been so cool to get ang lee’s crazy high frame rate movie about the rumble in the jungle with ray fisher as Ali
- glad they moved away from the weird bubble talking thing in aquaman. I get why they tried it but it never works. on the other hand, willem dafoe’s luscious locks are one of the best parts of the whole thing
- I appreciate that Snyder said fuck it, i’m shifting into 4:3 mode, but it looks undeniably silly on my not very large tv
- the mini movie that introduces the flash is entirely in slow motion & might be the best singular sequence of any of the dc films. those few minutes alone are certainly better than the entirety of captain marvel. however, I’ll say that hot dogs moving in extreme slow motion are a pretty good litmus test of how you’ll react to the movie as a whole
- would love to work out at the gym with zack snyder. he probably is an excellent spotter who knows how to get you to max reps
- the all black superman suit is so cool and so unnecessary, and is actually even more cool *because* it’s so unnecessary
- jared leto might actually be the worst actor in history. I saw a tweet recently saying he belonged in prison & frankly I agree
- is this much much better than whatever the hell came out in 2016 (2017? idk can’t remember, not important) yes, absolutely. is it still a big bombastic superhero movie with a ton of slo-mo & a cgi? also yes. so do with that what you will
- at the end of the day I support our big strong boy, and i’m very happy he got to do this because I can’t ever envision a situation like this ever happening again
