Justice League - Pregame (Critical Reviews, Musings, etc. - No Spoilers)


#82

My favourite Batman film is probably Batman Forever. I can totally see its not a good movie. And it has some terribly over the top 90’s performances…But it’s a film I can watch over and over again, because I think it’s such a fun ride.

What’s the over/under on a surprise Green Lantern reference in a post credits scene?


#84

There’s apparently two credits scenes, one in the middle and one at the end. I would assume one probably sets up Aquaman’s movie and the other Darkseid but could possibly be green lantern too.


#85

It’s been pretty standard for a while that these movies only have one stinger, and any other extra scenes after the end of the film are just for shits and giggles, no?


#86

There is a very small chance I will think it’s a “good” movie. Even as someone who likes the first two Snyder films. The trailers don’t inspire hope, nor do phrases like reshoots and two directors.

Still, I am having a lousy week, I’m depressed, and I get to see a live action JL movie in four hours. Even if it’s shit it’s going to be great!


#87

One review I read in today’s paper commented on Steppenwolf being a poor villain with little motivation beyond “I’m evil”. I’m of the mind that not every villain needs nuance or a complex motivation. Some can just be evil for the sake of being evil.


#88

No, Newsarama says mid-credit scene (fun), and then end-end credit scene. Stay til the very end.


#89

Krypto?

I hope you like it. You can have a cuddle in the meantime if Mrs. Robert doesn’t mind.

I’m the idiot who went to see mother to cheer myself up. Don’t do that. Ever.

Then I went to Blade Runner to cheer myself up. Some stupid git, I mean girl, clunked me on the head with her handbag as she was finding her seat behind me. I suspect she had a copy of Alan Moore’s Jerusalem inside, and also several breeze-blocks. And then there was the scene with the doggie. I still haven’t seen it properly what with all the sobbing and everything. How long ago was Blade Runner’s premiere? My neck is still all hurty.

Maybe wear a crash helmet just to be on the safe side.

Hopefully JL will prove to be more Tigger-ific than Eeyore-y for you.

Though that would have actually been somewhat like the old Kirby era story regarding a lost and amnesiac Odin.


#92

40 % on Rottentomatoes. Damn, had some higher hopes for this.


#93

Don’t let it discourage you. You may enjoy it immensely.


#94

#95

The reviews I’ve seen say he’s boring and not threatening.


#96

He was born to be wild


#97

Or take you on a magic carpet ride.


#98

My Blade Runner experience was sitting next to an elderly couple in which the man was having a really hard time understanding what was going on and trying to talk his way through his problems, including asking “is that Harrison Ford?” five minutes after Ford appeared.


#99

He’s your pusher man.


#100

I’m so friggin’ excited to see this. But, the missus won’t let me go to see the midnight show. Apparently I have to wait until tomorrow afternoon, and the show I’ve already booked tickets for. I ask you. Is that fair?


#101

I sat next to a drunk middle-aged couple during Dunkirk who completely misunderstood the non-linear nature of the narrative and kept asking each other why the film didn’t make any sense. Loudly. Drunkenly. For ninety minutes.
