Ha, I tried to remember that Spin Doctors song, and the first thing that popped into my head was what we had re-named it at the time.

 

Pocket Full of Shite.

 

Fucking dreadful.

She is but in 2016 she's an oversexed nudist played by Cate Blanchett.

You know when your local classic rock station is going into the shitter is when they go with the "best of the 70s, 80s, and 90s" format. The first time I heard the Spin Doctors I had to restrain myself from marching downtown and torching the place. 

 

Suffering through it when it was new was bad enough.

Saw this tonight at the fan screening.  Brief non-spoiler reaction, because there's some stuff I want to think over because this really is trying to be a thoughtful film ol' Zack's meathead-y way.

 

Well.  It's better than Man of Steel.  Also, Lois and Clark are the only two characters who consistently try to do the right thing.  Everyone's pickin' on Superman here, but, y'know, he's actually a pretty good dude.

 

I need to chew on it a bit, because it is a weird movie that clearly went through one heck of an editing process, especially in its early sections.

 

Oh, and I really want more Wonder Woman ASAP.   And god love him, Jesse Eisenberg commits 1000% to his performance.  That extra zero is not a typo.

post #63 of 7357

Thoroughly enjoyed the IMAX fan event last night for this film.  Without hesitation, Zack Snyder and Chris Terrio caught Marvel with one film.  This is easily a mostly smoother version of IRON MAN 2 that feels very self contained, with an INCEPTION like ending.  As presently constructed, it feels a lot like Snyder's theatrical cut of WATCHMEN but better.  Yes, it's disjointed in the first half of the film but I'm willing to bet serious money that that's where a lot of that footage for the Ultimate Edition will go.  It seems that set up to the film got truncated down.  You still understand everything that's going on but it's not as smooth.  But once everything converges, it's a ride to the climax of the picture.

 

While Snyder and WB can call this film a branching film for the larger universe, that's really not what it is.  Superman fans can rest easy.  This is a solo sequel to MOS, that just happens to have Batman and Wonder Woman in it.  

 

Ben's Batman is the darkest one yet.  This motherfucker is bent and single minded in his purpose, no matter what Alfred (Jeremy Irons SLAYS in the comedy department) tells him.  Hardcore Batman fans might have a problem with his methods and execution of said methods because make no mistake, he kills in this thing.  But again, he's bent.  Nothing's going to stop him from fulfilling this so called "legacy" he feels is the right thing to do.

 

Gadot's Wonder Woman is on her own mission.  She's a cypher like Black Widow was in IRON MAN 2 but her arrival in the climax...the theatre went apeshit.  The WONDER WOMAN solo film is going to be just fine, if the script and story is right.

 

Eisenberg is the master manipulator, completely unhinged in this film.  The whole film, he's just off but he's the smartest cat in the room.  His comedic bits are wonderfully off the rocker.

 

Henry Cavill had the toughest job because he's doing a lot of reacting and soul searching in this film.  But, he's Superman through and through in this film.  It would not surprise me one bit if his story with Lois Lane gets the most footage in the Ultimate Edition.  Their story gets short changed a bit but you feel the emotional between them and what they're going through (And I was not prepared for their bathroom scene together in Lois' apartment).

 

A lot less action than MAN OF STEEL but like that film, Snyder waits til the back half of the film to unleash and by God does he ever.  Again, not as much action as the first film.

 

All in all, I think it's a real good film that might become Snyder's best film once we get a look at what those 30 minutes are and how they work with the rest of the film.  As I said early, this is feeling pretty similar to the WATCHMEN situation.

 

And if you can, see this bitch in IMAX 2D.  It is flat out gorgeous.

post #66 of 7357

It's a serious scene but you can't help but realize that Amy Adams is very damn close to revealing herself a couple of times while in the tub...and that's before Clark jumps in with her.  It's not uncomfortable in anyway, it was just unexpected.  Haven't really seen anything like this in a comic book adaptation not directed by Zack Snyder.

post #67 of 7357

Thanks for the review, Don. Looking forward to this on Friday.

 

Is there an After credits scene we need to sit through?

post #70 of 7357

No after credits.  People were disappointed but I had a hunch that Snyder didn't want to go the Marvel route.  This is a self contained film.  I completely agree with writer Chris Terrio's assessment; this is chapter 2 of a larger narrative that gets resolved in the JL films.  

 

I'm starting to think that these DC solo films are just tangent films that will have no bearing on the overall narrative.

Without question.  And maybe a lot considering how erotic the scene sort of felt.

post #72 of 7357

Nice to know.

 

One last question. Wonder Woman's role in this. Is it an extended cameo (besides the Bruce scene we saw in the Trailer) or does she have a fair share of screen time?

post #73 of 7357

As an aside, the Flash cameo is the one that everyone is going to be talking about and try to decipher.  I'm still deciphering it.

Extended cameo.  Again, like Widow in IRON MAN 2 but more impactful, in my opinion.  She's there on her own agenda that happens to cross path's with Bruce's.  Gadot, for what she is given, is damn good.  She's going to be an excellent Wonder Woman.  

post #75 of 7357

I guess we'll soon find out.

 

Never been impressed by Gadot in her F&F role and Triple 9 (which i saw recently). I still think its a damm pity nobody thought to cast Lynn Collins as Diana.

post #76 of 7357

Good to see the general opinion turning around. Reminds me of TITANIC and AVATAR, though those two didn't have godawful trailers and tv-spots.

Yeah. And her grand entrance as Wonder Woman is the movie's big "applause" moment (it's not the shield thing seen in the trailers, FTR).  Her stuff in the fight with Doomsday is really cool as well.

Yeah.  It was really great to watch her and Superman got at Doomsday.  Batman barely factors in the final battle, which is how it should be, I think.

This makes me so, so happy to read. Fuck happy Silver Age Batman. I want him pissed off and brutal.

Not really.  

 

Christopher Reeve Superman made sweet, sweet love.

And Dean Cain Superman is hanging from his belt in a closet while dressed as a french maid.

post #84 of 7357

I'm fine with a Batman that doesn't have a vow against killing, as that's really only a byproduct of Frank Miller's Year One. Prior to that he wouldn't go out of his way to kill, but if he punched a criminal and they fell off a cliff he wouldn't be bothered by it.

 

I recently read a collection of Jason Todd stories that included issues from 1985-1986, in that conspicuous pre- and post-Crisis time period where things were the same but different, and Batman and Jason have a whole conversation about how he's killed before but doesn't take pride in it. That's fine!

 

I'd rather that than a Batman that is constantly finding loopholes around his own vow.

post #85 of 7357

BUT WHAT ABOUT AQUAMAN, DAMMIT?

 

Also, thanks for the spoiler free review. Will catch this movie this week.

Wait, a Superman movie is being released on Easter Week? Jeebus Symbolism synergy!

post #86 of 7357
AQUAMAN cameo is short. Cool. It goes with a sequence where WW is looking over the meta humans Luthor has been spying on.
post #87 of 7357
Also, Chris Pine cameo!

Thanks, Don!

I'm very surprised that this (apparently) doesn't suck outright. I'm still skeptical that I'll enjoy it because it's Snyder.

Agreed, but it's still very early. I'm having a very tough time reconciling that DC caught up to Marvel with one movie. Granted, I am biased, but that's not to say I don't want this movie to be awesome.

post #91 of 7357
I don't have a lot invested in this either way. If anything, I keep waiting for something to come along and kill the superhero movie trend. And while I don't like the MCU approach to these stories, I'm not really loving that Snyder is the guy driving the DCU.

But if this film works, that's good. We have enough bad movies in the world that I always welcome a good one.
post #92 of 7357

Can't stop thinking about how fucking nuts this film is.  It's comic book y to the nth degree in a lot of spots.   And yet, it has less action than MAN OF STEEL.  Go figure.

Listen, I could be way off but on initial viewing, there's just so much to digest.

 

But, this is WATCHMEN theatrical cut all over again.  I can just feel it.  When that 3 hour version hits, it's going to be masterful, in my opinion.
