I’ve decided I’m not going to bother watching the latest Zack Snyder slug-fest. Sorry DC, think I’ll wait for Suicide Squad. Don’t get me wrong, I am a huge fan of both Sucker Punch and Watchmen so I’m not just anti-Synder, but the first Man of Steel was such a joyless timesink that I don’t see the point in revisiting it. Also, I don’t know how anyone could meet, much less surpass, the first two pitch perfect Nolan Batman movies.
Apparently that makes me part of the problem; because I’m told that critics being critical of a movie is now problematic. But when they are critics that I generally agree with, and the flaws they’re pointing out are the very things that are usually deal-breakers for me. Well, why would I pay money to go see a movie I’m not going to particularly enjoy, and in doing so support the production of sub-par movies?
I’ll wait for it on Nexflix methinks.
