  1. Doug, could you do a quick review for 10 Cloverfield Lane if you happen to see it? I thought it was really good, but I’d like to know your opinion.

  2. I still believe DC and Marvel Comics-dominated Hollywood cinema is exactly like Burger King and MacDonalds, final answer: MacDonalds still wins.

  3. I want to restore the epic high fantasy and closer serious but more fun-filled genre of fairy tale genre and hopefully restore the interest of real life historical film genre and even the action movie genre or most likely the classic and contemporary literature (not young adult distopyian apocolyptic genre) genres.

  4. I’ve accepted that these movies are not going to be like the comics, so it doesn’t hurt me as much. Honestly, it was Jesse Eisenberg’s part in the trailer that made me want to watch the movie on DVD just because he looked so funny in it. I definitely got Jim Carrey as the Riddler vibes from him, and I loved his part in that movie. Apparently he was playing Lex’s SON instead of Lex himself which I am suspicious about. I wonder if that was a last minute change because of fan reactions. I could be wrong, so I won’t dwell on it. (Why not just get the actual Lex instead of his son anyways? Does Lex even have a son in the comics?)

    I wish he just played the Joker because he might have been good at it. He would have rocked in Suicide Squad. (Personally I wish this was the Suicide Squad with Catman and Bane instead of the version with Harley Quinn.) Also, didn’t they genderbend Jimmy Olsen in Man of Steel already? If so, why bother with bringing him in as a CIA agent later, and killing him off? How do you go from a character that works in the news to making him a government agent?

  5. You guys hit the nail on the head with the problem with BvS. It’s just not an enjoyable film. I’ve loved Batman (and Superman) since I was a kid. Where does this movie rank with me for both of them? Near the bottom. It’s just not something I would recommend as a fan of both characters. I can think of comics, tv shows, movies, animated movies, spinoffs, etc I’d much rather suggest to people than this movie. It’s just…. it’s not very good.

  6. I agree that the movie wasn’t terrible, but the bad outweighed the good. Honestly, “Suicide Squad” really should be nice. I knew this would suck because “The Force Awakens” was good. We’re not THAT lucky! I agree that the opening scene with Batman in Metropolis is very well done. Doomsday does look like crap.
