Oh boy. So, time to word my thoughts that doesn't offend the people who did enjoy the film and not spoil too much for the people who do want to see it.... For whatever reason.
Okay so, my brother and I went to see it for basically the same reason: To make fun of it. The theater was mostly empty save like a family or two so we were thoroughly able to do that. Cause, wow, where do I begin with my criticisms? I'll probably just prattle them out as they come to me like I do with everything.
I guess first I'll give Zack Snyder one thing: The visuals were great. That's one thing he's good at and I will admit that. He can frame the movie to look much like the comics and that's honestly really cool. But it doesn't excuse the rest of the faults I had with the movie.
First off, Superman. I hate how he's being treated as this melodramatic Space Jesus. Granted, there wasn't as much very obvious Christian iconography in this one, but you can tell that's still the general frame.
Batman isn't much better, though I mean... He's probably done a bit better than Superman, since Bruce is a character who's supposed to be written for a darker and heavier theme. But, and I hope this isn't spoiling anything, but he uses a lot of guns in this movie? Sure, not all of them are strictly 'bullet-shooting' type of guns, but... A lot more guns than I would expect an IC Batman to use.
The villains are kinda disappointing too. Lex Luthor doesn't quite act like he should. Canon Lex is offended by Superman as he sees him as an insult to his personal pride as not only the most intelligent man in the world, but just an accomplished man in general. You can see shades of this in the movie, but then it goes a step further so it's less of a pride thing, and more of a 'fuck everything but especially superman' kind of thing.
My brother and I had fears about Doomsday and we were absolutely right about him. His canon origins aren't much better, but at least it wasn't... What it was in the movie.
Overall, it really felt like there was way too much packed into one two hour movie. You probably could have gotten two movies out of that shitstorm. It felt more like watching a miniseries with a few episodes missing than a real movie.
Wonder Woman was pretty hot though. I'm sad that she didn't show up just to smack Batman and Superman out of their little bitchfest though. That would have been awesome.
..... Also! Something that actually is a high-quality piece of media!
Kikuo and Hanatan have worked together on a new album, titled Act 1 in English, and oh my god? I can't stop listening to it? If you like spooky, circus-y, alternative-ish, emotion-packed music, go listen to it. Even if you don't, go listen to it. It's on youtube go search for it go go go you fools.
