    October 5, 2017 2:05 pm For the Inhumans IMAX screening I was one of 20 people on the Friday night at 9 pm. It was almost laughable by the turnout, I overed some teenagers criticizing the acting rightfully so, as some of the acting was incredibly poor.
    March 27, 2016 11:44 pm My view on this movie definitely falls in line with Conor's. There are elements that are good, but there are elements that are noticeably bad as well. The fact that they tried to fit a Man of Steel sequel, a new Batman movie, a prologue to Justice League, adapting elements of Dark Knight Returns, Death of Superman, and a weird nod to Crisis on Infinite Earths all in one film definitely feels to much. Plus, the fact that there will be a rated R version of this film on blu-ray this summer meaning there will be a rated R Superman film is just strange. I wonder how Darwyn Cooke feels about that? I never had any real doubts with Ben Affleck when it was announced he was cast as Batman, and he did an excellent job. I feel he really does make up for his turn as Daredevil, which I have to say I enjoyed as a teenager when it first came out until i finally read Frank Miller's run on Daredevil. I finally saw all the problems with that movie. I believe he has grown a bit as an actor, and maybe that was because of the time he stepped away from acting and focused more on directing. Henry Cavill definitely deserves better material to work with because he can be a great Superman, and for some unknown reason he hasn't had it with these past two movies. I think the writers' should have gave him a great Superman speech during the senate hearing where he could have had him explain his faults and to reassure them that he does need to try to be a better hero that the world needs. Maybe Chris Terrio will give him a "Rebirth" type of change with his motives and characterization in the Justice League film when that comes out next year. I thought Jesse Eisenberg was ok as Lex Luthor, there's definitely moments where it feels like the writers might have changed the characterization of the character in different drafts, and nobody noticed. One moment that stands out is when he's given his speech at the dinner, and he starts kind of arguing with himself in front of the crowd which felt really weird. His motives aren't all clear in the film and I think that's probably due to the writing of the character. I believe that they just assume we know Lex is Superman's primary villain, due to the history of character being in other films, tv, and the comics. Hopefully, his characterization can be grown and altered to the version we know from the comics in any future films he is in. Gal Gadot was great in those brief moments we had with Diana/Wonder Woman. I enjoy the fact that the Doomsday fight might be the first time in a long time, if we are to believe she hasn't fought in a battle for awhile. I'm definitely looking forward to her movie next year. The editing feels definitely wonky, especially with the transition between Bruce's dream sequences. I don't believe that the apocalyptic Batman sequenced has anything to do with the Justice League film, I think it's really just Bruce's fear of what if Superman is evil,and would Superman create an army of followers, as well as bring other aliens to Earth (in this case aliens that look exactly like Parademons, and all the Darkseid/Apokolips imagery, so we're just to assume it has to deal with the Justice League film). It's weird that he wakes up from one dream, and into another when he's being warned to by the Flash, which right away reminded me of the beginning of Crisis on Infinite Earths. Then he wakes up again. In regards to the Justice League cameos, it was strange that Diana views the videos of the other future Justice League members. I felt it should have been shown as Bruce going through and viewing them, and realizing that there are other metahumans out there in the world, if we are to believe that Superman is the first being with super powers the world is introduced to, realizing that the world is changing and that Superman isn't the only person with powers. Hopefully, I didn't bore anyone with this stuff as some of it has been spoken about on this site and other websites. It was just good to get all my thoughts out to people who have seen the movie and rather than not trying to spoil it to those who haven't seen it.
    March 9, 2013 7:08 pm Fantastic episode! Sad to see it leave next weekend...
    January 24, 2013 10:31 pm Due to the fact that Chris Hardwick is a big Doctor Who Fan.
    January 24, 2013 7:50 pm Chris Hardwick's Mandroid would fight a Cyberman from Doctor Who.
    March 25, 2012 5:53 pm I would watch the League pick new members every week if we got to see amazing cameos.
