    Because a piece of shit can only be better when it's longer. Undeniable logic.
    Alien 3 says hello.

    That's a disservice to Alien 3,it definitely wasn't a piece of shit.

    Not after they added in the extra 30 minutes of footage it wasn't.

    Regardless I don't think adding more running time to JL will make it better. Snyder isn't a great director, adding 2 or 3 hours isn't going to transform the movie. It's just going to test your patience even more.

    Apparently only 10% of the film was Snyder footage so it sounds like it'll be a completely different film if it does ever see the light of day. An awful, awful film but different none the less.

    Oh, it looks ok I guess for a targeted product, designed by committee that have struck lucky with a couple of mediocre, big money making movies, albeit with no fucking clue what to do with their IPs, apart from scream FFFFNVVJKLZZZZZXFUCCCCCKKKKKYHGZZZZZMOARCOKEDDAAAAAASSSAAAAAAACHURRRNITTTOUUUTTTT!

    Business as usual.

    The BvS director cut is better than the theatrical. Still not great but the re-editing makes it stronger.

    I don’t think Snyder is a bad director but he’s been leaning too far into specific stylistic choices. Not dissimilar to Michael Bay, who can still make a good movie when he’s not exclusively shaking the camera around fight scenes and doing rising slo-mo pans around actors.
    Snyder also can’t seem to write, and that’s a big problem for retaining attention.

    Those are all problems but it's central problem is that it introduces a threat that wasn't built up or earned like Thanos was in the MCU and as a consequence feels empty and meaningless . It essentially goes to the finish line without ever feeling like it started. Couple that with Snyder's perma grim dark vision and turgid writing and you've got a pretty bad movie.

    Well, apparently the whole point was to build up to Darkseid who was going to eventually be the Thanos equivalent further down the line but they bottled it (because they probably knew they’d never get that far).

    The Snyder but no doubt will have more Darkseid.

    So not strictly a film, but the Arrowverse Crisis on Infinite Earth crossover event happening in a few days looks insane, even to someone who doesn’t give a shit about any of those things (ie me). Every CW DC show + Superman Returns + even goddamn Smallville coming back. Wonder if they’re going to make the mid-40 year old Tom Welling pretend to be in high school again.
    This has been insane and mostly a lot of fun. So much better than anthing from Snyder.

    Flash movie still a thing apparently. Coming 2022


    Easiest way to reboot the series without getting rid of cast members. (Apart from Batfleck of course)

    I feel like they should let this go, how many directors has this filmed lost now? It's obviously a sign.

    Why don't they go the Joker route? Make Flash just a guy who runs really fast, like 100m in 8.5s fast. And it's this speed that fights crime and brings hope.

    I'd watch that. Maybe they can get Oscar Pistorious on release for the role.

    Oscar would be a good shout if they wanted to go down the more emotional movie route. He seems to be able to cry on cue easily enough.

    Looking at the DC Darkness graph, if Batman Vs Superman is pretty damn dark and Joker is fucking heavy dark, how dark must Miller have gone for them to say, "No sorry actor guy, that's too dark."

    We Need To Talk About Flash.

    WW84 trailer music on Spotify for anyone interested. Really enjoyed it.

    I think enduring another film of Margot Robbie doing her fucking Harley voice would drive me to moidah.

    Christ, makes that Suicide Squad trailer look Oscar worthy. And we know how that turned out..

    Will probably still stupidly go see it.

    She's a great actress but Margot Robbie is really irritating in that role. Undoubtedly not helped by the character being shit to begin with.
