Justice League

Recommended Posts

Reviews are starting to roll in for WB's Justice League.

 

So far, they seem to be pretty positive overall. Most are saying the film is funny and a blast, despite a weak villain and other normal issues that plague many comic book movies.

One reviewer said, "it has the crisp look of a Zach Snyder film, with the wit and humor of a Joss Whedon film". That is great to hear, as Snyder generally has a fantastic aesthetic, but his dialogue and grim outlook leaves a lot to be desired in a superhero story.

JL opens Thursday night.

From all the trailers and teasers and everything out there I’m not expecting it be to good or the level a live action justice league movie could be. The over used cgi is really throwing me off idk. We will see but dcs track record hasn’t been good. 

 

This is will definitely crush at the box office though

I just can't wait till Snyder is no longer associated with these movies. Praying Justice League does well enough for DC not to nuke the whole process.

Every single one of Synder's movies is made better by the "director's cut". That's exactly his problem, he has these grandiose ideas that don't translate well to blockbuster cinemas. Also his color palette aesthetic is poo.

I like anything Sci-Fi...there's a lot of hot garbage out there but I watch it anyway.  Take the Iron Fist for example...hot smothering garbage...watched it twice.  It beats the hell out whatever other ridiculous shows that Netflix seems to be pumping out at a record pace.

Well at least it's above Paul Blart: Mall Cop unlike Batman v Superman.

 

Bring on those low expectations!

Every single DCEU movie they’ve released has crushed in the box office and besides Wonder Woman faced terrible critical reviews. 

 

I dont expect JL to be much different. Critics and most audiences will hate it but will have already paid to see it. 

 

Maybe Aquaman will be good, the The Flash “FlashPoint” movie could be good but DCEU just failed really hard at developing their cinematic universe. Marvel built t slow and meticulous. DC haphazardly threw it together by using BvS as the launch point and it made the movie overall suffer. Same with Suicide Squad

The sooner WB gets away from Snyder's idiotic approach the better off they'll be, and they know that.

Sounds like Whedon at least made JL fun. There's a story out where Whedon "favorited" a tweet saying the JL villain is the worst in comic movie history lol.

WB has a very solid slate of directors lined up for their future films. It's just too bad Snyder fugged up the beginning so bad, but yeah it was uber rushed in an attempt to ride Marvel's Avenger wave.

I'm still going to see JL too, maybe tonight if  possible, but my expectations will be managed.

86% of audiences liked it according to Rotten Tomatoes. Still going to go see it. Still hopeful that we'll get some good movies from DC in the upcoming years. Especially with Geoff Johns at the head of things.

Saw it yesterday.  Had modest expectations after seeing the reviews saying it was just ok.  However, we all loved it.  As with DC in general, it's darker than Marvel, and you have to accept the silly plot devises that you find in every superhero movie.  But it was very enjoyable.  I'm kind if eh about Affleck's Batman.  They probably need someone with a little more natural charisma to draw your interest than Affleck has.  But other than him, I really liked the other heroes.

Wonder Woman is the same WW we've all come to know and love.  Could not have been casted any better.  Aquaman was awesome. Jason Mamoa is perfect in the role.  Snarky and fun, while still being a badass.  I was a bit worried about Cyborg going in, but while he's not one of my favorite characters, he was fine and didn't do anything to take away from the movie.  I also liked The Flash, but think he was a bit over the top in trying to be the comic relief.  I hope they calm him down a bit in future movies.

The villain was ok, but I felt the movie was more about getting the heroes together than him.  To me, he felt like a plot devise rather than a focal point in the movie.  I wouldn't put this up there with WW, but it's at least in the same game as that movie.  Overall, it was still a very good and enjoyable movie.        

Oh, stay to the end, there are a couple of post credit scenes...the last of which is very important to future movies.
