That was while watching the Celtics-Warriors game after. Woof, I can’t believe I have to go to work today.
I was maybe a bit overzealous coming out of the theatre and it’s not a perfect movie. For some reason they made Flash act like Buffy the Vampire Slayer’s dickhead friend whose name I forget (Xavier?), and there were some fugly CGI moments for sure. Steppenwolf was pretty meh, but as I said it was more like Sauron than Apocalypse, and there were other LOTR vibes as well. They also weren’t quite sure what to do with Batman—both the writers/directors and Affleck himself—which I think in hindsight was always going to be a challenge with a Justice League movie.
There were some story problems but seemed to be caused in the name of keeping the running time short, which I can appreciate (Ragnarok was the same way).
There was still lots of neat stuff and I’m excited to see it again.
A minor spoiler but Danny Elfman did the score and managed to tease both his own 1989 Batman theme AND Williams’ 1978 Superman theme and look…I’m easy.
