Can't stop saying it, really think this season of Supergirl is turning into the best one so far.

So Justice League was incredibly freaking average, but it's miles ahead the piles of shit that Man of Steel, BvS and Suicide Squad was, so they'll christen is as the best DCEU film ever and forget Wonder Woman ever existed since it has a woman in the lead role. There were slightly okay bits, there a ton of terrible bits, and there were some absolutely magnificent bits whenever Gal Gadot was on screen, she fits into the role of god / superhero more than anyone that's ever down the comic book hero moniker, even Chris Evans or Hemsworth, IMO. She's got such a goddamn immense presence.

The entire Amazon race is done so well, that it was easily the most enjoyable scenes in the film. However, I surprisingly enjoyed the Cyborg character, probably right now the third best out of all the Justice League (behind Wonder Woman and the Flash, of course). Ezra Miller is really funny, by the way, but his role outside the costume doesn't feel as genuine as it does inside. He's much more funnier as the Flash than he is sincere and sympathetic as Barry Allen. Aquaman was tosh, he doesn't really do much character-wise, and the Atlantis scene is probably the worst action scene in a super hero movie I've ever seen this side of 2010. Don't want to reveal any other spoilers or who might appear or whatever, so I'll stop there.

I'll say one thing that I'm definitely certain of now, though: Ben Affleck absolutely sucks as Bruce Wayne.

The plot is absolutely hilarious, like a mesh of Lord of the Rings and the Avengers. They even have their own versions of Infinity Stones :lol:

Oh, and if there's any post-credit scenes:

Spoiler

There is! Two of them! Both quite enjoyable, actually, should have put those in the film :P

The Teaser's Description text is even better.

"After surviving a near fatal bovine attack, a disfigured cafeteria chef (Wade Wilson) struggles to fulfill his dream of becoming Mayberry’s hottest bartender while also learning to cope with his lost sense of taste. Searching to regain his spice for life, as well as a flux capacitor, Wade must battle ninjas, the yakuza, and a pack of sexually aggressive canines, as he journeys around the world to discover the importance of family, friendship, and flavor – finding a new taste for adventure and earning the coveted coffee mug title of World’s Best Lover. "

Also, I don't know what it is...but for some reason, Melissa Benoist seems much hotter as Overgirl..

This looks great:

 

Oh my god that is spectacular! DCTV are definitely coming in to show DCEU how you do a superhero team-up, aren't they? Shit, I can't believe I have to wait a week for that! 

Anybody else notice they didn't seem to show Earth-X Flash? And there was actually very little Flash in that entire thing, barring the wedding at the beginning. 

Also, spotted Sara and Alex doing shots together at the wedding shower, so I'm probably going to be shipping Lanvers for this entire event. Not sure if I'm okay with that scene of Nate carrying Kara, though :P

She plays evil incredibly well. The Red Kryptonite episode was probably my favorite episode of season 1.

Here's my thoughts on The Justice League as someone who literally has not bought one comic book in my life.

Why should I give a shit about any of these people outside Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman? What worked about The Avengers and the MCU is that we spent 4 years getting to know these people. So we didn't need to cram in exposition and the part where the heroes are at first reluctant to join the team and then eventually join because it's the right thing to do. It was just so much time wasted. I'm only about 60 percent kidding when I say that I was surprised they didn't cram in another scene where the Waynes are murdered in front of Bruce.

The Flash:


"We're the Flash"  I puked when Iris said that;. She's just so FUCKING ANNOYING. Other than that, I liked the episode.

Yikes, not only did Justice League fail to crack $100 million on opening weekend, it's the lowest opening for any of the DC universe films. 

I found it to be better than I expected, but still pretty average.

Honestly, I came out of the movie liking Cyborg more than anyone else. The movie was, I thought, really mediocre, which is bad in and of itself but is at least a step ahead of BvS. Some of the Joss Whedon scenes stick out like a sore thumb and his patter feels really wrong coming out of Batman's mouth, and it felt like there were these constant moments where some character would say shit like "booyah" or "all riiiiiiiiiiight" and it would start feeling more like a big-budget energy drink commercial more than a superhero movie. But there was also some stuff I liked!

Spoiler

While I thought they completely overdid The Flash-as-comic relief, all of his interactions with Superman were great. I loved their fight, loved Flash saving the car with that family in it only to look over and see that Superman saved an entire fucking building, and liked that one of the post-credits scenes was a nod to the classic race between them. It's the most I've ever enjoyed Henry Cavill's Superman by a mile.

and while I feel like this movie actually managed to lower the stock of Batfleck (something about his Bruce Wayne just feels wrong, like they're trying to convince you that he's damaged and has lost part of his humanity but Affleck does absolutely nothing to sell it), I'm excited to get one more movie of Jeremy Irons' Alfred.

fucking astonishing that after Wonder Woman it didn't break 100 million. But then, Wonder Woman also for sure captured the attention of people who don't care about superhero movies normally; my mom, who's never watched a superhero film before in her life, watched it on a plane on recommendation from a friend and told me how much she liked it after I picked her up from an airport.

"Booyah" has been Cyborg's catchphrase since the Titans cartoon. I'd be kinda bothered if he didn't say it.

I feel like Batfleck is just essentially Ben playing the same guy he does in every movie, like  Holden McNeil or Bartelby suddenly have a billion dollars and fight crime

Cyborg, the Flash and Wonder Woman are definitely the best half of the Justice League. Superman is just played all over the place, Batfleck sucks, and Jason Momoa's Aquaman is dry as a bone, it does absolutely nothing for me.

Wonder Woman also had really strong word of mouth, which definitely helped. It's definitely the big budget film I've recommended most over the last year. I feel like the marketing for Justice League, at least in the UK, has been pretty weak. I caught a trailer last week while watching something else at the cinema, but I'd honestly kept forgetting it was coming out - and, have also since that trailer, forgot it's out now.
