I'll have something in a bit.

In case you were afraid that maybe everything isn't awful enough, the Batman v. Superman movie is getting mixed-to-bad reviews, largely (I think) due to Zack Snyder's excessive, terrible visual stylings.

I'm still going to see it. The movie looks like hot garbage, but I do mean "looks." Every bit of dialogue I see I like.

I saw a great clip where Superman catches Batman, and gives him a dire warning that he is to end his crusade immediately. "The bat is dead -- bury it. Consider this a a mercy," Superman says, and walks away, imagining that that's the final word here.

Instead of complying, Batman asks, very threateningly, "Tell me -- do you bleed?"

Superman turns around, a little stunned -- Are you seriously threatening me?

And Batman just stares back at him -- "I am."

Great moment.

Wish everything wasn't so pointlessly dark and crammed with CGI.

The critics seem to think that Ben Affleck makes a great Batman (which I think is kind of obvious, if people get over the Social Media pressure of claiming he's terrible; it's like no one can admit "that offhandly stupid thing I said on twitter two years ago might have been wrong"), and that Wonder Woman winds up being a nice upside surprise.
