Zack Snyder's Justice League

Zack Snyder's Justice League ★★★★½

I was just in awe and disbelief most of this viewing that 1) The Snyder Cut is real and it's here, and 2) it's even better than I expected. I couldn't believe what an idiot Joss Whedon must be to have all this footage and make the colossal mess that was "Justice League" (2017). Plus the dumb scenes Whedon added seem extra dumb now.

"Zack Snyder’s Justice League" is so well paced, thematic, thoughtful, badass and still funny. All those big epic moments, actually feel like they carry weight and are super impactful. He does such a good job with mood setting, and it's so refreshing to see a story that takes its time and never feels rushed - all four hours of it.

All those moments in the 2017 version that felt stupid, unneeded or just bad are recontextualized or simply removed this time around. There were so many scenes that I scoffed at in the 2017 version, which just given the proper set up work so well.

This is probably Zack Snyders best movie, and definitely the best DCEU movie. I am amazed and in awe of the execution here. God, I wish they'd let Zach Snyder do two more of these, so we can see the trilogy he envisioned.
