You know what might have made money?
A SUPERFRIENDS film that was as bright and goofy and fun as Shazam was.
Y'know, instead of wasting mountains of cash on continually polishing this turd.

I didn't care when Duke Nukem Forever came out, either.

So is it Bats saying, "Fark you Superman, you're a dick" or is he gonna proposition WW, like, "Hey baby, let's fark"?

It's just too bad the new version isn't coming out until next year, because watching this movie suck all over again would be so 2020.

I wonder how things are going on Earth 4 for Warner Bros. where George Miller got to competently make his Justice League movie?

It's longer because they're just running all the action scenes in super-slow motion with a dirge-like soundtrack playing over them.

i'm going to watch this and whatever stupid superhero shiat comes across my radar

i went back and watched Man of Steel, it was pretty good, interesting story

it's December - are there any awards bait movies coming out right now or are all the pretentious people scared of the Rona? i usually watch that shiat too

I didn't realize that we're still living in 1983, where an F-bomb in a movie causes us to pull out our fainting couches and write an article about it.

The line will be, "Hey Superman, what the fark is wrong with your lip?"

A Justice League movie without Green Lantern? FAIL.
 
2020-12-15 10:07:26 AM  
One F-bomb doesn't necessarily guarantee an R rating; it depends on context. If it's metaphorical ("Fark you!"), you can keep the PG-13, but if it's literal ("I want to fark you!"), it's R.

Also - "Halleluja" on the soundtrack? I've already seen "Watchmen", and it sucked.

Affleck and Gadot thinking "wow, the movie up there's even shiattier than *this* one"

You know what's worse than a 3 hr shiatty movie?

Making it a 4 hr shiatty movie.

It will be worth it if the scene is Batman confiding to Aquaman that he likes to "fark fish".

DC has fully embraced this "grimdark" model for its movies, and Zack Snyder is one of the leading exponents of that.

A big factor for why Marvel movies have, by and large, been better and performed better at the box office is that the people who make those realize they're making superhero movies, so they need to be at least a little bit fun.

To be fair though, their animated series and one-shot animated movies are generally better. Except that whole Into the Spiderverse thing, which was just jaw-droppingly good on so many levels. But DCs animated fare has WB animation studios behind them, and they've been consistently better than most Marvel animated fare.

So much this, and why Shazam!, WW and Aquaman were so much better than this garbage. That and Cavill is more wooden than my grandmother's headboard. Supes is about as hopeful as a Cleveland Browns fan.

There's also the big difference in that the people who make the MCU movies are fans, i.e. they're fans of Marvel comic books/graphic novels and they're fans of the earlier Marvel movies such Spiderman & X-Men. And they're now putting up on the screen what they as fans wanted to see since they were kids.

I remember that episode of "Mythbusters."  Apparently lion dung is a good base material for the task.

To date I can not think of a single "director's cut" that truly made the film better, but can think of a few where the film was worse. Let us all think of Ridley Scott who has produced how many director's cuts of Blade Runner? I remember old interview with Roger Ebert who talked on this subject, pointed out that most cases movies need that control and voice over the director to make a good film. Often the director's ego is such that they are unable to see for themselves just how awful an edit could be, they simply are not objective enough.

I anticipate this version to be as bad if not more, this is after all a comic book movie, not high art for *#&@ sake.

I never saw the studio version of Brazil but I think I'm safe using it as a counter point.

Brazil and Kingdom of Heaven are two that come to mind, but by and large you're right.

I've heard others claim the Almost Famous director's cut is better, but I disagree. I don't think it makes it worse, but that film is perfect as is.

Oh, the LOTR extended cuts are probably other ones considered "better."

Batman works as grimdark. The WonderWoman movie worked until the third act. But Superman though has always been the opposite of grimdark.

better writing

better narrative structure within individual movies and the Marvelverse

better acting as a whole

Star Trek: The Motion Picture.

The film ran out of money and time, and was essentially just a rough workprint with timing issues galore, and missing fx shots. The director's edition is the final, polished and complete version.

Agreed.

I've heard the director's cut of the Daredevil movie with Ben Affleck is better.. but I have not seen the first version to compare them.
