    I thought the Incredible Bouncing Man (to give the film its correct title), was OK. Not worthy of the criticism that was flung, but I suppose it was very expensive to make. Better than Lost in Space which received similar flak.

    Having initially been put off by a lot a negative reviews I watched this last weekend and really enjoyed it. It hit that rare balance of me not quite knowing what was going on but being intrigued enough to want to continue watching to find out.

    edit: the only issue with Christopher Nolan films now is you know there is a twist, so whilst watching the movie you can't help but be like this.

    ROFL! I just started watching it a bit ago and wondered why it was 4:3 and read the same article!

    I can't believe he went 4:3, it's a real turn off for me. Makes me think I'm watching something from last century that was made for TV. :|

    and then your next post is a link to a 4:3 film :lol2:

    btw Christopher Nolan often uses 4:3

    I am done with the first 3 parts. I still have 2 hours to go.

    Not really spoilers, but my initial impression(s) so far, and I don't want to ruin or change or spoil anyone's expectations. You have been warned.

    They still haven't really assembled as a team yet.

    It's still the same story. Same pig with lipstick in a dress but now forced to wear high heels for 4 hours instead of 2. Some of the extra bits are decent but a good bit of it should have remained on the cutting room floor.

    Well Snyder Cut really is something to behold. I thought it was all hype but damn I’m impressed. Aspect ratio a little weird but really it’s a beautiful film, and it actually makes sense now. Very good.

    On a matter of "How It Should Have Ended" for Justice League given the events from the WW84 movie:

    Wonder Woman turns all 3 MotherBoxes invisible and hides them

    I liked the movie a lot. The ratio looked weird in the beginning but you get used to it quickly.

    I'm currently watching the Batman Vs Superman extended edition as a 3h appetizer to the 4h Snyder cut main course...

    I have never watched the theatre version of BvS. But I really like BvS Ultimate.

    I saw the theater version when it was released, but I don't really remember what was extra in this Ultimate edition... enjoyed it though :)

    It was garbage. I enjoyed the first Wonder Woman but 1984 was just terrible in every aspect. I derived no enjoyment from it whatsoever, just stupid.
