The schadenfreude of DC’s failed cinematic universe will never not be funny. They tried, they took some big swings, they drummed up a lot of controversy, but in the end their epics plans fell flat on their face. Honestly, it’s just really funny.
Isn’t that right, Honest Trailers?
And so good times were had by all. A good chuckle to start our Tuesday. I’m still not entirely convinced that Flash movie is actually going to happen and come out. I think they’re even filming it now. And I do still rather like Aquaman and Shazam. So at least there’s that.
So I’m on vacation this week, and that makes for a very lazy Sean. Turns out, I do a lot of my best work when I’m actually at work. When I’m at home, there are too many video games and whatchamahoosits to play with to stay focused. What can I say? I like to play!
So forgive me if this video is the best I can do on these lazy stay-at-home days!
Still, it makes some good points about Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. Though now we’re on to making fun of Suicide Squad, so Cinema Sins might be a little late to the party.
Honest Trailers delivers the long-awaited goods! Remember Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice? They do!
Good times. Good times. Oh, also, it came out on DVD today. So that’s something.
It’s all been leading to this. Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice is the movie they were waiting for!
And it’s all pretty funny! Solid work, HISHE people! So, who else is going to see Captain America: Civil War this weekend? Heck yeah!
I’m not really sure what I think about Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. I can’t bring myself to say it’s a bad movie, because it’s competently made and sometimes enjoyable. But I can’t bring myself to say it’s a good movie, because it’s utterly joyless and, at times, terribly made. Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice is the Transformers of superhero movies. It’s a big, CGI mess of darkness and explosions, but sometimes it’s fun seeing these characters on screen, and it’s going to make all the money.
Movie Rating: 5/10 – Alright.
At the very least, it’s kind of cool to see these superheroes on the big screen together. Part of me did get excited to see Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman standing together against adversity (even if we’d already seen it in the trailers). But another part of me wished the movie was more fun. BvS is a dark, drab, gritty production that puts even the Christopher Nolan Batman movies to shame. This film is the exact opposite of the successful and wonderful Marvel movies. There’s no charm, no joy, no heroics and, most important, no fun.
Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice is the grimdark superhero trend taken to its ultimate conclusion. If you like your superheroes as grimdark and serious as possible, this might be the movie for you. But I would have liked something more enjoyable.
