Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice ★★★★

let it be known that i absolutely detest MoS.

aight, so yeh boi Aahil wins screening tickets to watch this on the 23rd. so, yeh boi ditches World Issues so he can commute downtown to get good seats. and yeh boi, gets good seats. and he gets free (bottled) drinks and popcorn. and he has great company preceding the film. but he expects to hate this film.

but yeh boi doesn't hate the film.

he kinda sorta fucking loves it.

here's a list of messages yeh boi sent out to people; he knows they don't make sense - just like his love for this film:

WED 8:32 PM: it's so stupid and damn but Snyder has really good stuff to say even if it's undermined by the at times incoherent plot. but like you can't deny how crazy stupid good it is at action and SUSPENSE and chills and just downright emotion. it's a chaotic and uneven mess and I absolutely like it.

THUR 12:32 AM: This movie is super weird. Cause it crosses the fine line between absurdity and total chaotic nonchalant insanity.

12:35 AM: And through that we don't get Superman who is a boring character in this universe but it makes no sense cause he's the crux of the narrative.
Everybody is busy talking about what Superman should or shouldn't be but no one bothers to check up on Superman and be like "hey, what do you wanna be?"Flaws elevate the movie.And it's weirdly political in the most stupid way possible ????
Batman is a psychopath. Pretty sure Superman needs to be locked up because he crosses the fine line of Serial killer and Wonder Woman steals the entire show.
And it has suuuuuuuch weird religious subtext that it's almost a parody of the blatant Jesus metaphors in MoS.
I also don't know if there's a plot. It's just random events that happen and they're thrown together.
It terrifies me that kids are going to watch this movie this weekend.
No kid should ever have to see Batman almost decapitate a guy and Superman nonchalantly throw a guy into a fucking wall and nearly annihilate him.
A primary plot point in this movie involves a piss Jar.
Like, I kinda sorta love it cause its so uneven. If it was a quote on quote good movie, I probably wouldn't like it.
DUDE, BRUCE WAYNE JUST CASUALLY WAKES UP TO A NAKED GIRL IN HIS BED AND NO ONE EVEN QUESTIONS IT
LIKE HOW DID SHE GET THERE
no lie, he probably roofied her.

THURS: 9:00 PM: It's an absolute trance that'll demolish your expectations minutes in and builds new foundations. It'll twist your brain in the way that it's insulting you. This movie still amazes. It's a giant parody of religion in the most simplistic way. And above all else, it's a faux apology letter doused in the ink of blatant Liars and anarchists.

It's the Bible for Satanists.
And it might just be the greatest superhero movie ever.



so, in the end, yeh, it's pretty good.
