Can we stop talking about Justice League?  Seriously, the movie sucked, Dawn of Justice sucked, Man of Steel sucked.  Zack Snyder is a hack.  Joss Whedon is a philandering asshole and probably did exactly what the studio asked him to do which was take the pile of bleak downer shiat given and try to make it Marvel-lite.  He failed.  End of story.

Does that about cover it?  Now can everybody shut up already about this cinematic turd.

The wrongness of Snyder's DCEU films is kind of fascinating and awe inspiring to behold. Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice (a title so godawful I can never resist saying it in full with dramatic emphasis) is my pick for worst film of the decade. I mean, you'd think that if put the two biggest and most popular superheroes of all time in one movie together, you'd print money. It should have been a lay up. Instead it was a cinematic Hindenburg whose box office receipts were left eating dust compared to what the Avengers movies make.

I would love to see the Snyder cut, just out of pure curiosity. And I would rather see the actual film as it was originally written, planned, and produced than a half-reshot, cobbled together, atonal, discordant, unfocused film, one that is obviously at war with itself and tries to serve too many masters. Even if it's just to hate-watch it.

Constantly acting impulsively instead of actually paying attention to the situation and her surroundings.  She had the mentality of a child instead of someone who grew up learning combat and strategy.  I just found it frustrating to watch.

Meh, that wasn't as bad as the terrible, terrible ending. Especially b/c a lot of the impulsive outbursts, she was actually right. The thing that bugged me the most was that the ending made World War II a plot hole. The worst war in human history was a farking plot hole.

Ray Fisher had better have something more substantive than "I didn't like how he cut the movie", otherwise he isn't going to be working in Hollywood much longer.

Those are some pretty serious accusations in this day and age.  If you're going to go at an established guy like Whedon with those types of accusations, it had better not just be because you didn't agree with his artistic vision where your character got cut back on a little.

I very much liked Man of Steel. Now BvS.... I wouldn't necessarily say it was good, it was pretty badly flawed, but I did find it entertaining. Justice League was just awful though. About the only good parts in it were the parts with the Flash. Just so bad.

As for Whedon, I hadn't heard about anything problematic about him aside from his ex saying he cheated on her and was manipulative. I haven't heard anyone else corroborating those claims, maybe they're out there, but I will say that the way he writes female characters... doesn't do anything to convince me his ex isn't being truthful. There's strong female characters, and then there's caricatures (some of which I still like in his work anyway, but that doesn't change the fact).

I'm not sure what the actor here is complaining about since he didn't say it, so it's like half a story at this point, not the whole story.

Not bent out of shape. I'm just saying I preferred Shazam because I thought it treated the lead character better.  Wonder Woman has been great in the animated movies.

not ALL of them...currently its mostly the DCU films (minus Shazam...that one is pretty well done)

and before you chime in with whatever MCU focused b.s. you've got saved up, bear in mind that comics in general and films based off comic properties are signifigantly more broad a category than just "SuperHero Movies"

This.  If he isn't backed up by some of his costars or video evidence, his acting days on major projects are probably behind him.

Abuse shouldn't be thrown around because someone was critical of your performance or cut some scenes that didn't work.

On the other hand, Whedon has been called on some shiat before so it's possible & not like he's Mr Rogers.

not that one from Gail Simone...half way through WW gets knocked out and has to be saved by Steve Trevor (ditching the invisible jet and having to steal an enemy helicopter), or the bit where the invading monster army shows up on the Washington Mall via wooden imitation Higgins boats from a VAST oceanfront beach that doesn't exist in DC.

also one of the more annoying aspects of WonderWoman (the recent film) beyond THAT dweeb being the main villain, or the Amazons all wearing high heeled boots for no reason...is that Dianna can't apparently reach her full potential until she bones Steve Trevor.... so despite its professed feminism it falls straight into the same bullshiat Disney Princess culture gutter were the Heroine needs a Dudes magic deep dicking to come into her own.

kryptoknightmare: I mean, you'd think that if put the two biggest and most popular superheroes of all time in one movie together, you'd print money. It should have been a lay up.


People say that like the expectations for a Batman/Superman film - 10+ years after Batman Begins, almost as much since Iron Man - weren't absurdly high. Apart from those of us read into the WB/Snyder pairing (and, e.g.  already hated Watchmen), EVERYONE was expecting gold.

They turned in B/B- work (with nonsensical edits sacrificing explanation for narration to turn the theatrical cut into a solid C+), that looks a lot worse because the stakes were so high.

Justice League was just awful. Like they asked directors to shoot unrelated vignettes and had editors stitch them together without having the audio.

// also, I only saw Birds of Prey once, but got-DAMN if I didn't enjoy the motherfark out of it
// I liked that Man of Steel was (supposed to be) Clark Kent's origin story, not Superman's - not many ways to make Big Blue interesting, especially when Steve Rogers is RIGHT THERE

2020-07-01 4:37:53 PM  
Liked Whedon's work with Buffy and Angel.  Can't really say that I go out of my way to see anything else he's done...I guess I liked those two shows because of what they were, not who created them.  That being said, often times with allegations like these, when there's smoke there are at least some smoldering sparks in the ashes.

Stratohead: and some people enjoy movies where the plot isn't full of holes and makes sense.


I hated Man of Steel, so Snyder's "vision" of a brooding, whiny Superman was just wrong for me right at the start.  I was kind of interested in seeing BvS, but then it became obvious that it would be more of the same, so I waited until it was on streaming.  It was even worse than I expected, and even stupider than MOS.  I had no interest in JL before or after Whedon took over.  When I finally saw it, it was terrible, but I expected that going in and wasn't surprised.

What floors me is how much this terrible movie is STILL being talked about online.  It's over.  Move on with your lives.  Listen, Richard Donner finally got to re-cut Superman 2 the way he envisioned it, and you know what, it wasn't really better than the original cut.  And Richard Donner was a class act director.

Zach Snyder is not Richard Donner.

Snyder is a peach. Like when you eat a peach that is so ripe you can push your thumb through the skin. The juice runs down your chin and drips onto your chest, and the place in between your fingers gets so sticky you have trouble separating them. The next day, even after you wash your hands, you can still smell the sweet juice on your skin and, if no one is watching, you lick your fingers and the memory of that sweet fruit on your tongue floods back. Snyder is like that.

Are you sure your username isn't Close2theEdgelord? JFC, take a pill. Some people just like DC canon and don't require every movie to be a cinematic masterpiece.

and some people enjoy movies where the plot isn't full of holes and makes sense.


Like Star Wars?

Cubs300: Liked Whedon's work with Buffy and Angel.  Can't really say that I go out of my way to see anything else he's done...I guess I liked those two shows because of what they were, not who created them.  That being said, often times with allegations like these, when there's smoke there are at least some smoldering sparks in the ashes.


Charisma Carpenter (Cordelia) has claimed that Joss was a major dick to her on Angel.  They've since made up, though.

I read he had to replot / rewrite an entire season because of her not telling him she was pregnant until it started to show.

browneye: Aside from Wonder Woman, is there anything about the DC Cinematic Universe that isn't a huge clusterfark?


Birds of Prey comes immediately to mind. That and WW have the most rewatchability and the leads are closest to their comic characters as well (at least their 1950 and 2010 incarnations, respectively). Shazam is fun as well. While Aquaman is a terrible movie from a story, character, and dialogue perspective, it's also really fun and pretty.

Just about any of the blockbusters of this era, even the best ones, have enough holes in the plot to scare any trypophob. That's any Star Wars, MCU, DCEU, Harry Potter, etc, etc movie.

Complaining about plot holes in big budget movies is like complaining about it being too cold if you go skiing. You may be right, but what the hell did you expect?
