So I couldn’t sit by any longer and not chime in on the situation with ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.’ I understand how critics make their money. They have to “Critique” otherwise they would be called fantics. But the way I see it is, what do we really watch “comic book” movies for..? We want to see how our heroes come to life on the screen, we want to see how directors depict the individual heroes we’ve come to love, we want to see how they interact on screen with each other and we want to see the most powerful ones battle.
The truth is, having some elaborate love story, or deep plot is secondary.. Yes it’s important, but not the first thing we actually look for or expect. When we find both of those things in a film, yes it becomes mesmerizing, but very rare. How many films have been able to pull off that type of magic in recent history?
Maybe, (Matrix Reloaded) 2003…?
We could possibly throw in (The Dark Knight) 2008
There are more, I just want to point out that even ‘The Avengers‘ wasn’t some “Deep” movie. It was what it was suppose to be, a comic on screen. Zack Snyder was charged with making the opposite of Disney/Marvel. And from what I’ve heard, that’s what he’s done.
I for one can’t wait to see BvS! I will reserve my judgment until after. Hopefully I don’t have to eat my words.
[…] And it shared something else with BvS – the critics hated it. […]
