BvS Ultimate Cut?

 

So good.

I'm seriously stunned that Justice League is apparently not getting a longer cut. It seemed like a given that it would. And it needs it the most. I like the movie ok but I'm NOT a fan of it's too brief run time. Again...it being too brief is only my opinion. It just felt so much smaller than it should have. Justice League being about as weighty as one of the first two Thor movies just feels wrong. Feels totally like the wrong one to get breezy and chipper and economical on..

We know it's you Zack, take off that MichaelM mask!

post #1654 of 1714

I'll probably give this one more viewing (library or streaming) but as time has gone by, BvS has bypassed it as the more interesting and entertaining film.

post #1655 of 1714

They should have called it the MARTHA! Cut. Oh well.

post #1656 of 1714

Cut scene. The MOS theme works really good here.

There should've been a trying-on-supersuits montage.
post #1658 of 1714

That shameless hussy Cyborg isn't even wearing a suit. He needs a robo loin cloth or I won't be able to maintain eye contact.

Man, looking at the special features of the digital release makes furious about how much talent DC could had used for this: I mean, Grant Morrison and Mark Waid were right there.
Also, given the adaptations of Killing Joke and Harley Quinn, I’ve really soured on Bruce Timm.
post #1660 of 1714
I've really soured on this since I saw it. I get tonal whiplash from this movie almost as intensely as I do from that Death Wish remake trailer. Yeah Superman has good scenes but the movie as a whole feels much too slight. I honestly like Man of Steel and even BvS more than this. This feels like the pilot to a TV series next to BvS. At least that one had a sense of grandeur..

They can't hire comic book guys to make a comic book movie. What do they know about making movies?

I heard about a certain addition to the cartoon adaptation of Killing Joke and haven't gotten around to seeing it.

 

Disappointed in Timm.

I’m not sure, but I’m starting to think Paul Dini might had been the better artist of the pair.
post #1664 of 1714

Dini working by himself hasn't exactly been fantastic either. They both need the constraints of working on a "kid's" show to reign in their worst impulses.

I liked The Killing Joke because it's weird and creepy.

Watched this at home after having seen it in theaters.  I liked it OK when I saw it in the theater.

 

At home?  I was struck with just how ugly a movie this is.  Between the desaturation and whatever filters and lighting and CGI upper lips and...ugh, I mean seriously, there are several shots in this where Henry Cavill and Gal Gadot, two people that are pretty objectively considered top-tier specimens of physical attractiveness just look haggard and barely recognizable.  Ben Affleck we already knew suffered from reshoot-itis but there are points where I almost had to wonder if it was his stunt double being dubbed. 

 

And the rest of it isn't particularly good looking either.  For a movie partially made by Zack Snyder, it's incredibly lacking in striking imagery.

Well, apparently nobody should watch a movie at Jmacq1's house!
post #1671 of 1714

I've seen a few commercials promoting the digital release and I have to agree, Jmacq. I have a feeling this one will stumble hard upon rewatch, even below BvS, due to it's clusterfuckery.

post #1672 of 1714

BvS?

So good.

 

Justice League?

It's fine.

post #1673 of 1714

I don't know that it's fair to call it fine. If any other movie came out with tonal whiplash the way this one does, but we weren't privy to the behind-the-scenes fuckery that accompanied it, it would get thrashed for the sheer incompetence on display. Giving the movie a qualifying trophy because it started to right some wrongs seems lazy when it did it in the middle of production. It feels like championing a fat kid at a foot race who finished dead last after getting a ride from his mom for the final stretch.

post #1674 of 1714

I really hope that rumored "Snyder Cut" is coming....some day?

 

Liked this ok in the theater....it was a dud at home. I have to agree with Jmac. It looks/feels like a direct to DVD sequel to BvS.

 

The first trailer looks considerably different than what we got. It at least looked consistent with BvS (which I learned to enjoy after a few re-watches). It feels way more Whedon than Snyder. Not only in looks but in stupid jokes that feel wrong for these characters. I still cringe at "something's bleeding" and "I don't...not." 

 

I liked just how fucking DARK Batman was in BvS. In JL, he lightened up as his character arc should but not to the degree we get.

 

Anyways, sign me up for a Snyder Cut. If Richard Donner can do it, why not Snyder?

post #1675 of 1714

I'm eventually going to watch this again (preferably BEFORE watching A Clockwork Orange) as I'm curious as to what a second viewing holds.

 

It was "fine" on initial viewing at the theater - certainly not good or great but not the nonstop trainwreck we'd been prepped for. Again, first impressions. I suspect it's going to suffer on any subsequent viewings.

Goddamn you.

post #1677 of 1714

I'll watch The Godfather before Justice League, if it makes you feel any better.

post #1678 of 1714

Imma need the order of the movies you need to watch.

post #1679 of 1714
I watched this three times in the cinema, where it was meant to be seen!

Yes. YES.

Feel it in your hearts.
post #1682 of 1714
The third time I saw this, I bought a Justice League beverage cup and drank out of it while watching Justice League.
post #1683 of 1714

But did you have a Warner Bros. ball cap?

post #1684 of 1714
Was it peach tea?
post #1685 of 1714
Yes to both.
post #1686 of 1714
Anyone seen the porno yet?
post #1687 of 1714
Does Superman keep the moustache in that one?
post #1688 of 1714

For Brad, this was the porno.

Aww, but I made popcorn and everything!

I mean I know I can’t match the sublime visual splendor of the Panasonic ZT60, but my Samsung LCD isn’t THAT bad....

Can anything match the sublime visual splendor of the ZT60?

Asking for a fiend.
post #1691 of 1714

"The Mother" thing made me chuckle.

 

post #1692 of 1714

That line made me laugh quite a bit.

 

Now I can say I've seen the movie....and I was so very right.

post #1693 of 1714

Omfg you will never ever ever learn.
