I got JUSTICE LEAGUE for Christmas and finally watched it; my third time seeing it. (When it came out…when a friend got it on Bluray earlier in 2018 and now; January 2) Here are my final thoughts…
It is not as bad as I had originally thought. I had made the mistake of reading the Rotten score and comments people were making and bought into some of them. Some of them were valid but…here is my take away from my third viewing.
Yes…the CGI for Superman’s face is pretty bad…BUT…the CGI for Steppenwolf was not as bad as some people are saying. Is it as good as avatar? no…but most of it seemed okay. After I got into the movie, I got into the character and thought visually is was doable…and I liked whoever the voice actor was.
Was Aquaman a sexist in the movie as is now being suggested; borderline… But wasn’t that the point of his own movie? He is gruff and seemed to realize at the end of Aquaman that he needed to take things a litle more seriously.
Ben Affleck was very good as Batman, and in fact, I thought they were all good. But this time around I actually got into Cyborg more and hope he gets a movie because I think it would be very good if they tap in on some of the drama going on with him.
The Wheddon stuff; I am a big Snyder fan and hope to hell they release his version…BUT…I didn’t find anything wrong with Wheddon’s stuff. Was it as good as Snyder’s? For now, we can’t be sure…but as is…the movie is good.
Justice League vs Batman v. Superman; Batman v. Superman (either version) is a better movie than Justice League. I think it is a deeper movie, even with the “martha” scene. How do I rank all the DCU movies?
- Man of Steel (loved this movie)
- Aquaman (Surprised at how good it was)
- Batman v. Superman (like all the themes in this movie)
The top three are all good…as for the rest
- Wonder Woman (over rated…enjoyable…but pacing seemed to slow it down too much at times)
- Justice League (good movie…just not better than the ones above it.
Wonder Woman and Justice League not on par with 1-3
- Suicide Squad (the final third of that movie ruined what was, up to that point, a good movie}
Seen this one three times and when that helicopter crashes when they arrive on the scene of the action, the movie just goes off the rails and becomes boring and silly…
Those are my final thoughts on Justice League and ranking of the DCU movies thus far…
