Based on the overall review score on Rotten Tomatoes and the reviews on YouTube, I will still see it... just not this weekend, or next weekend, or anytime soon.  The movie has just been downgraded from "must see ASAP" to "maybe later".

I'm guessing someone wanted to do Dark Knight returns or a similar slant on the story and was shot down by the studio. That's what I saw in the trailer, even down to batman's plate armor style. In Dark Knight Batman is basically Dirty Harry fighting to win no matter the cost, Superman is a 'yes man' taking orders from the president. So they set themselves up for the recreation of one of the best Batman series ever and of course people were disappointed.

 

I haven't seen it of course, but they were probably too careful in maintaining the image of their prized possessions for anything interesting to come out of it. 

Na na  na na  na na  ...

greg358 from Darksouls 3 PVP is a CHEATER.

That is all.

We all saw the trailers, right? We knew this was going to happen.

I saw the trailer with Jesse Eisenberg just interjecting himself onto the screen and then just rambling on for a not insignificant amount of time a while back. I was pretty convinced it was going to be garbage after that, but, you know, I could've been wrong.

Put fascists and sociopaths on your ignore list.

But they are amusing themselves, for it is their adversary who is obliged to use words responsibly, since he believes in words. They even like to play with discourse for, by giving ridiculous reasons, they discredit the seriousness of their interlocutors. They delight in acting in bad faith, since they seek not to persuade by sound argument but to intimidate and disconcert. If you press them too closely, they will abruptly fall silent, loftily indicating by some phrase that the time for argument is past.

Zack Snyder made a bad movie. Absolutely shocking.

"I murdered my entire family as well as the police and priests investigating me for murdering my entire family in the name of Satan. Good times." - Bartimaeus

I wonder how bad it must be that even the "critics" couldn't swallow it.

И погибе Српски кнез Лазаре,
И његова сва изгибе војска, 
Седамдесет и седам иљада;
Све је свето и честито било
И миломе Богу приступачно.

They should make a Booster Gold movie  :dancing:

Ben Affleck killed Daredevil. Killing the Batman franchise, now that would be impressive. Anyway Superman always sucked, nostalgia can't change that. 

 

Actually, sounds like the concensus is that Affleck's Batman is the best thing about this movie.

The common complaint that I'm reading in the reviews linked at Rotten Tomatoes (and I'm only skimming to avoid spoilers) seems to be that the movie takes itself too seriously in all its broody darkness.

 

Which was pretty evident from the trailers and Man of Steel, to be honest. Expecting a tonal shift in a sorta-sequel is probably the wrong way to approach the movie, IMO.

Kind of sad for the guy if this just tanks.  He always got too much credit for Daredevil being terrible, and now he could be front and center as the DC movies go into a tailspin.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has just been downgraded from "must see on opening week" to "maybe later". So this is my suggestion if you still want to see the movie.

 

Disney's live-action The Jungle Book will come out in three weeks on April 15. When The Jungle Book comes out and gets decent reviews, buy the ticket to see that one, and then slip into a theater to see Batman v Superman after the Jungle Book.

 

Or you can wait another two weeks for Captain America: Civil War on May 6.

You need to rectify that young grasshopper

Why?  Haven't you realized that the Hoonding trademark is to be unimpressed by everything?

 

Oh, and to only write one line zingers.  :p

I still haven't seen Avengers 2.

I watched it casually a few weeks ago while it was airing on TV. Was pretty bored to tears - way too many characters doing way too many things at once, way too much constant, pointless-seeming action. Would not recommend it. But then again, superhero movies aren't for me, and similarly, I'm not a Marvel fan, so I wasn't exactly the target audience. :shrugz:

I liked the first Avengers movie well enough, but the second left me pretty cold as well.
