The best moments of Dawn of Justice resemble nothing less than a feature length adaptation of a series of Alex Ross paintings in all their naturalistic glory. But amid the visual treats is an utter mess of thinly sketched characters, haphazard plotting, surprisingly jumbled action, and “cut your nose to spite your face” world building. It’s not a success either as a stand-alone Man of Steel sequel or a would-be kick-off to the DC Extended Universe, and attempts to insert Batman and his Super Friends do real damage to the story and thus the film. And, my word, this movie is almost a self-parody on “grimdark.”
Which is pretty much in line with every other reviewer I trust. So in a flurry of weak publicity, I find it very curious that Warner Bros release the trailer for ‘The Lego Batman Movie‘
Did anything exciting happen today?
Yes, computer. Yes, it did. Ben Affleck got pwned by Will Arnett.
