‘Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice’ Dominates Razzie Nominations Shortlist

*Cue sad Ben Affleck meme*

Zack Snyder’s bombastic Man of Steel follow-up, Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice was not the critical success many expected. The Ben Affleck/Henry Cavill-picture rocketed past $870 million worldwide, just shy of the lucrative $1 billion mark, but sadly received a less than stellar critical rating on Rotten Tomatoes. In 2017, the Holy Tomato knows all. With Award Season underway, it was only a matter of time before the annual Razzie nominations were unveiled. Many (myself included) expected Suicide Squad to be the DC Comics/Warner Bros movie that dominates the categories; however, Batman V Superman shared the nominations. Of course, this is not the final list nominees, with the proper list to be revealed on January 23rd.

Batman V Superman (wrongfully) is on the list in many areas such as: WORST PREQUEL, REMAKE, RIPOFF OR SEQUEL, WORST SCREENPLAY, WORST SUPPORTING ACTOR, WORST DIRECTOR, WORST ACTOR, and of course, WORST PICTURE. Somehow, someway, both Affleck and Cavill received nominations for worst actor, despite being (pretty) fantastic in their respective roles.

Oh yeah, and how the hell did Gods of Egypt make any of these categories? That was a masterpiece*

Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice is on DVD/Blu-Ray now.

Just a young writer hoping to become an old writer. From the land Down Under; no, I don't know Jai Courtney.

  • Claudio Zamorano

    Didn’t like the movie, but this is too much. Ghostbusters should be dominating every category. The Razzies premise and nature is destructive critique, and appeals to the misery of human nature, I wish it didn’t get any press at all

    • ND

      Ghostbusters did well with critics. Far more than many blockbusters this year. That matters more than some fans online overreacting to women and reboots.

      • Sean H

        I think they didn’t want to side with the alt right attackers, but that movie really did suck. Melissa M especially.

        • ND

          Agree to disagree. Ghostbusters relied on dialogue and character moments over explosions, unlike so many blockbusters this year. Critics are tired of having to sit through action schlock.

          • SAMURAI36

            LOL, action schlock. These are ACTION movies. Not Black Swan, or Citizen Kane, of whatever tear-jerker is out this year. They have to be judged on the value of what they are, not on what they’re not.

            Statements like that only prove why critics are losing credo with general audiences more & more.

            Besides, critics are people too, with their own biases. There’s been easily a dozen or more critics that have written & admitted that they don’t like superhero films. So that means that they walk in the theater with an axe to grind? Why they even bother to critique such films, is beyond me.

            It reeks of a disingenuous agenda, especially with the notion of “Superheroes are ruining the medium” floating around Hollywood these days.

          • ND

            There’s a difference between action movies and action schlock. That we can’t tell the difference anymore explains why BvS and ID4 are rightly dominating the Razzie list.

          • SAMURAI36

            Riiight, & now this Razzies thing is somehow the gold standard for such distinctions? The janky org, where anyone who pays $40 to contribute, gets to decide for the world, what is “schlock”, & what’s not?

            Honestly, try harder. You tried to put the critics on a pedestal, & when that got shot down, now the Razzies are your fallback? Good job.

          • ND

            Those critics you’re bashing seem to like the Marvel super hero movies just fine. And they loved the Nolan Batman. Try harder yourself.

          • SAMURAI36

            You realize that your first sentence just proves my entire point?

            You talked all that “action schlock” nonsense (which I see you’re not saying anymore; imagine that), but the critics love Marvel’s “action schlock”, with their grossly edited, 50 shots in one scene, Power Ranger style choreographed fights, that wouldn’t make less sense, if they took out the actors, & put 10yo’s in their place?

            Lemme guess…. The action in Silly War was “friggin’ awesome sauce”, right?

            I could go into all sorts of reasons why the critics are biased. I could also provide several links, where several critics have even admitted their own bias.

            But why bother? The fact that you could easily do the research yourself notwithstanding, your entire point here, has been that “DC sucks”, & therefore no amount of evidence I provide is gonna dissuade you from that line of thinking.

          • ND

            Eh, no, the critics like Marvel for their characters and their quips, etc. They feel Marvel gives them something to enjoy beyond just fight scenes and explosions. Same reason they liked Ghostbusters. That’s what I said from the beginning. And how does my pointing out that Nolan and Burton Batman were well received equal “DC sucks”? I said a lot of the blockbusters this year were problematic for critics, including BvS.

          • SAMURAI36

            So, to recap:
            You moved on from “action schlock”, since, technically speaking, every single action film by definition fits that description…. then you moved on from trying to present the Dazzles as some authority, based on how completely silly that sounded…..then you moved on from critics being unbiased (actually, you just ducked that point altogether)… And now it’s about the idea that critics like Marvel, because they bust out with the jokey-jokes?
            Even if there were truth to this (& mind you, I’m not necessarily saying there’s not), why on earth would you sit there & try to justify these critics??? Why on earth would I take critics seriously, who (according to you, & I’m inclined to at least slight agree) psyched themselves into liking these Marvel films, by convincing themselves that they were watching a comedy, rather than the “action schlock” that it actually was?
            Since you are wrapping back around to one of your original points, then all me to wrap back around to mine, which was the fact that more & more, the critics are losing the audience’s credibility.
            As for your Ghostbusters example that you keep trying to use, you are aware that the film BOMBED at the box office, yes? While you’re sitting here trying to prop this film up as some sort of critical darling, Sony is laughing at both you AND the critics, all the way to the poor house.
            I’m seriously trying to figure out, why you or anyone else, places so much faith in anywhere between 15 to 100 people, that you don’t even know (& therefore, have no way of knowing, let alone discerning what their personal motivations are), to the point where you would champion their opinions.
            If I, as an unapologetic DC enthusiasts, one day got a job as a film reviewer (you do realize it’s not THAT hard to do, yes? The bogus writers here on HH are one step from doing that themselves), & I were to write a review for the next DCEU film, do you REALLY expect me to write anything less than a glowing review?
            And, as someone who openly despises Marvel, do you honestly think I would be chomping at the bit, for the opportunity to totally shred the next Marvel film, knowing I have a becking audience at my whim?
            Why on earth would any critic by seen as above reproach?
            When I said “try harder”, I wasn’t trying to be funny. I honestly meant to process your way thru this stuff.

          • ND

            Oi…no, not every action movie is action schlock. That seems to be your hang up here, lol.

          • SAMURAI36

            No, my “hang up” is how you’ve seemed to arbitrarily designate certain films as “action schlock” over others.

            Once again, Was Silly War “action schlock”, yes or no?

          • ND

            I didn’t see Civil War. No, I’m not a Marveltard.

          • batghost

            you are such a lying baby. you dont know anything. go cry baby.

  • ElClownPrinceDeTrolls
  • Flidais

    should Suicide Squad not get nominated?

    • SAMURAI36

      Nope.

  • Brownstones19

    i’m 78% certain bvs and ss will win numerous awards despite there being far worse films and performances. I mean come on, Ben Affleck for worst performance? yeah right.

    personally I like the films (ss less so) will defend my opinions if necessary, and want the dceu/JLU to continue, but honestly the amount of drama surrounding it, on all sides, is tiresome and makes me want the next film less, simply because it’s a nuisance to have to explain why you like something and why you’re not an idiot. but it is what it is.

    • Marquis de Sade

      Yeah, Brownnose19, lonely is the road when you sniff the butt of mediocrity, and actually admit you enjoyed it.

      BWAHAHAHA!

      • Brownstones19

        I know right? well I like what i like.

        • Maxi Iroh

          Dude, just watch the movie and stop trying to put sense to the hive mind controlled people.

          • Brownstones19

            well I like some discourse, but sometimes it’s excessive

    • SAMURAI36

      You can’t be a fairweather fan. I could care less what people think; the DCEU is the best thing happening right now, and the numbers prove it.

      That said, It’s totally retarded to name Affleck and Irons for worst actor and supporting actor. That reeks of anti-DC bias. Especially when BVS was nominated more than once in the People’s Choice Awards.

      • Flidais

        Twilight also won the people’s choice

        • SAMURAI36

          So did Silly War and Deadpool. Your point?

          • Flidais

            The more eager fans are, the more worthless, meaningless and dispensable they are
            I mean, twilight is a hit without valid support

          • SAMURAI36

            Just goes to show that it’s all subjective.

      • Boldizsár István

        Numbers prove it? Hahahaha :DDDDDD

        • SAMURAI36

          Look, another idiot to block. ?

  • Marquis de Sade

    LOL! Didn’t I warn Sammy-rai that bvs and ss was gon’ get a lotta love from the Razzies come Award season when he was spazzin’ out about the lack of appreciation from the critics?

  • ClownPrinceOfTroll

    Batman, Superman, Joker and Lex Luthor, arguably the 4 biggest DC characters, are all on the shortlist for Worst Actor this year

    Even the new popular characters, Harley and Deadshot, made the list ???

    • Axxell

      Eisenberg should win it for supporting actor.

  • DeVaughn Lee Brown

    Good to see Fifty Shades of Black and Masterminds nominated. Both should win everything

  • Jo Hunter

    I used to see some point in Razzie. But nominating for Worst Actor what is arguably the greatest portrayal of a superhero character in films oughta destroy whatever credibility it clings on to. This is like nominating Sharknado for an Academy award for best picture. Maybe the people behind Razzie should do the world a favor and imitate Gollum’s iconic dive to Mount Doom.

    • Marquis de Sade

      “MAAARRRTTTHHHHAAAAaaaa!”
      Yeah, that was some Lawrence Olivier type of emotin’ right there…But take heart, ol’ Ben can now stand side by side with Ladyboo Halle Berry when she accepted her Razzie Worst Actress Award for catwoman. dceu just brings out worst in some of our Academy Award winnin’ thespians.

      BWAHAHAHA!

    • Chris W

      Best Batman action 100%. But that script was a mess, the dialogue was mostly one liners and nonsensical attempts at trying to be profound. Not even DDL could pull it off without looking stupid. Some of the only good parts were the Alfred/Bruce banter.

      • Jo Hunter

        Mostly one liners? Nonsensical attempts at trying to be profound? Those who say BvS dialogue are mostly one-liners are either parroting a dumb film critic who didn’t know what he’s talking about, or confusing BvS for Batman & Robin. And ‘nonsensical attempts at trying to be profound’ is true only for people who think building a gag around the idea of going for shawarma in the aftermath of a disaster where a lot of people died is entertaining.

        • Chris W

          Try getting some sun light.

        • SAMURAI36

          Best post on the internet.

    • RunForestRun

      Greatest portrayal of a superhero character is like a mr fantastic stretch my goodness

      • SAMURAI36

        As opposed to… What, exactly? The Cosplay acting of Silly War? I challenge anyone here, to go any average person on the street, (who’s NOT a Marvel Zombie), & ask them to quote a single line from any of the last 3 Marvel films.
        I’m betting that most of the people on here can barely do it.

        • RunForestRun

          I love how I didn’t even mention marvel movies or anything yet you automatically bring it up lol but as I said none of the characters in BvS are anything greatest portrayal and lets not talk acting when DC has Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman and Henry Cavill as Superman you’re not gonna win that argument bud

          • SAMURAI36

            The reason I brought Marvel up, is because I’m looking for a comparison.
            What is an example of someone “knocking it out the park”, when it comes to these films?
            Oh, & speaking of what wasn’t mentioned, why are you mentioning Gal, Mamoa, etc, when people specifically stated Affleck was the best portrayal? Why are you throwing these others…. Bud?

          • Axxell

            No…The reason why you brought up Marvel was because you’re an insecure fanboy who’s upset because people are calling out WB/DC…the only one claiming Marvel’s portrayals are substandard is you.

    • Axxell

      But nominating for Worst Actor what is arguably the greatest portrayal of a superhero character in films oughta destroy whatever credibility it clings on to.

      I actually agree that it’s probably the best portrayal of Batman on film, at least the most comic book accurate. But portrayal is not what it’s being nominated for; it’s for acting. A lot of people confuse the two.

      • Napi

        Stupid of Sade and Allexxa, butt-hurt unite! hahahaha

        OMG! it was pretty obvious to find both of you f@gs in a post like this, you must be ej@culating right now.

        Now, we just need that Carline show his fat @ss over here xDxD

        • Axxell

          LOL! Why would I be butt hurt over BvS getting skewered by the Razzies? I’m LMFAO! Go ahead and attack the Razzies some more with your excuses! Haha!

          • Napi

            You cant get your facking mouth shut, eh?

            I mean you are butt hurt because you were beaten by a DC fan and you can’t get over it.

          • Axxell

            WB/DC sucking is too painful? Is that why you’re trying so hard to change the conversation to your imaginary world?

          • Napi

            Not too painful when I tell you to LEAVE, hurt so much, eh Allexxa?? xDxD

          • Axxell

            Not at all…I quite enjoy watching you fail…how appropriate that you should be a fan of the DCCU…

          • Napi

            Enjoy? HAHAHAHA!!!!!

            It is not that you enjoy something, you got nothing better to do! Do I need to remember you the day you kept hours trying to make me fail while I was having a good time with my pals… and after all you were the one who FAILED and LEFT xDxD

            Sorry Allexxa, being a Marverloser is hard

          • Axxell

            Ironic coming from the one with imaginary friends…

          • Napi

            HAHAHAHA yeaaaah sure Allexx twitch boy

          • Axxell

            LOL! Tell your middle school friends to teach you insults that aren’t as corny…

          • Napi

            Oooohh… it seems I hurt something about you… Now I remember that you are a Minecraft rat kid that wants the movie of Marvel vs Minecraft, dont you? twitch boy? xDxD

          • Napi

            btw… no one takes the razzies seriously

          • Axxell

            Suuure…LOL!

      • Jo Hunter

        Ben Affleck’s acting was excellent, or else his portrayal wouldn’t have worked.

        • Axxell

          Well, to some people it didn’t…personally, he didn’t quite sell the performance to me, as unpopular as that opinion may be.

          • Jo Hunter

            That’s too bad, but I respect your opinion.

  • Affleck nominated for Razzie for worst actor in BvS? Huh? Best Batman I’ve ever seen. I loved the film also, warts and all.

  • SAMURAI36

    I find it hilarious that nothing from Marvel is on this list, even though when you look at the top 100 films list this century, not a single Marvel film is on that list. For that matter, Marvel’s not winning ANY awards, so what does that say?

    • Marquis de Sade

      …but at least they ain’t got no RAZZIES.

      BWAHAHAHA!

    • Bast

      making fun of Caroline Krafft wouldn’t stop her from beating me in this contest.
      Calling somebody else fat won’t make you any skinnier
      Calling someone stupid doesn’t make you any smarter
      All you can do in life is try to solve the problem you refuse to deny

      • SAMURAI36

        I’m sure that your waxing Khalil Gibran is just the milkshake that brings all the boys to your yard, but not only does it fail to impress here, but it also does nothing to negate a single thing that I’d said.

        • Bast

          Calling down marvel movies wouldn’t be able to make any dc crap good, no record is better than criminal record, let alone there is no evidence of anything about top 100 films list this century unlike that of Lindsay Lohan and Tina Fey

          • SAMURAI36

            Uhmm, yeah. I got your point the first time. As I said, not impressed, & it doesn’t negate what I said. You don’t like the DCEU, good for you.

            In the meantime, instead of waxing poetic, or humorous, or whatever it is that you think you’re being, try doing some research.

            http://www.bbc.com/culture/story/20160819-the-21st-centurys-100-greatest-films

            2 DC films made the list, while not a single Marvel film did.

          • Bast

            Who cares your impressed or not, what DCEU fans say are valueless and invalid like those of twilight fans but the latter didn’t blame on others
            Didn’t two dark knights result in the Colorado shooting, very impressive

          • SAMURAI36

            Yep, that’s what I thought; you’d run out of all faux intellectual gas, sooner than later.
            Guess what I do to people who do that? Don’t worry, You’ll have plenty of time to ponder it, after I block you.

          • Marquis de Sade

            Don’t you mean one pre-dceu flick, sammy-rai? – tdk don’t count, considering it’s not canon + it falls under wb/legendary’s umbrella.

    • Jim Long

      You’re trying to argue that Marvel isn’t at the top of a great films list, so it must be at the bottom? Nice logic there. What happened to the 98% of films in the middle?

      • SAMURAI36

        Uhhmm, no. I’m not arguing that Marvel is at the bottom of the list. I’m saying that Marvel is not on the list AT ALL. Did you actually look at the list? Something tells me you didn’t.

        • Jim Long

          This is a list of the worst movies. What is wrong with your brain?

          • SAMURAI36

            We’re talking about 2 different things, apparently.

    • ClownPrinceOfTroll

      Finds it halarious nothing from marvel is on the list lmao. Did they release a rotten film in 2016 that qas hated by critics and the general audience? https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/973f2f067e30134960f21219a9c31334e913e4faba65ee294c132eedcc2bde63.jpg https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/b211a984d8c1b8eda637509580e7bff70366e974726afa3c9fdfdf70803c9376.gif

    • Carl

      Movies that get 90% on RT are not qualified for the Razzies.

  • SAMURAI36

    This is all you need to know abou the Razzies:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golden_Raspberry_Awards#Criticism

    • Axxell

      Ah, Sammy…like clockwork, digging up anything you can find to fuel your ad hominem attacks on anyone who criticizes DC.

      • Esoteric Aura

        but why would any logical person take these awards serious if any subjective troll fan can join by simply paying $40.

        There are alot of DCU fans out here (including me)…if it bothers you then you’re a weirdo.

        I hated the 1st 2 avengers and and the last 2 iron man movies. Never bothered me that Marvel’s fans loved it all. I just didn’t watch the movies and minded my business. I love X-Men…Love all of the Wolverine movies despite the nerd brigade hating them and hating anyone that likes them. I don’t care.

        • Carl

          It’s not supposed to be serious, it’s supposed to be funny. The list always contains movie that are generally viewed as bad. That’s why you won’t find any Marvel Studios movies on there.

        • SAMURAI36

          Agreed, to all points.

        • Axxell

          It doesn’t bother me that you like the DCCU…that was not my point.

    • Carl

      The Razzies aren’t a serious award show. It’s supposed to be funny. It wouldn’t be interesting if they didn’t pick from movies that we know. They are picking from big budget, wide release, and well known films.

      Yeah anyone can join if they pay but that’s what prevents anyone from joining. You’d have to care enough to throw away $40 just to get a vote. Many people won’t do that. I didn’t. Also do you see any good films on the list? It’s not like people are voting for good stuff that they just hated for some reason.

  • SAMURAI36

    To the “writer”* of this article:

    Many (myself included) expected Suicide Squad to be the DC Comics/Warner Bros movie that dominates the categories;

    Oh yeah, and how the h&ll did Gods of Egypt make any of these categories? That was a masterpiece*

    Both these statements prove that you don’t have a clue what you’re talking about.

    OMG, this is f*cking adorable. I’ll see if we can all line up on stage during the awards ceremony and accept them together… maybe even drop a trailer at the end.

  • Axxell

    LMFAO! I can imagine you can boil water on Sammy’s head right now…Haha!

  • Sean H

    Now You See Me 2 was robbed. And each cameo in Zoolander 2 needs a nomination. J Law in X Men should’ve been a dark horse.

    • Sexy Jesse Eisenberg

      SMH, you’re right. I could have been a double award winner. Has anyoen done that before?

  • bingeit 45

    why not nominate the whole cast and crew of BvS and SS while we are at it

    • Sexy Jesse Eisenberg

      …. I thought they already did that.

      • bingeit 45

        they left few why be so generous, nominate all of them even unborn children of crew members

  • Chris W

    I thought Affleck and Irons were among BvS’s redeeming aspects.

    I’m surprised about the Collateral Beauty nods for the ladies though. I haven’t seen it but I didn’t realized it was universally panned. I thought it was oscar bait until now.

  • Jason Scarpelli

    This is the 1st year that a few of these choices are incorrect.

  • Darthmanwe

    Okay that’s bullshit, there were at least 400 movies this year worse than BvS.

    ….. See, this is what you can point out to when asked for a definition of the word “bandwagon.”

    • Darthmanwe

      Also, how does Nic Cage gets nomination for his Snowden role?!?!? He was awesome in it! Not a single shred of overacting, he was really good!

    • Carl

      They aren’t going to nominate things that no one has heard of. That’s too easy. These are the worst big budget, wide release or well known films.

  • Willydeee

    So the Razzies are good, until they disagree with me, then they’re BAD. I enjoyed both DCEU movies so far but I’d be stupid to ignore the very evident flaws in their scripts, editing, and some poor casting choices. DC will get on the right track soon; It took Marvel 8 years to get to where they are today. So don’t hate on someone or some awards show because they disagree with you. Just shrug it off, enjoy the movies you like, and get hyped up for whats to come.

    • Carl

      Yeah but in those 8 years Marvel Studios never had anything close to Razzie worthy.

    • SAMURAI36

      Do you ignore the flaws in Marvel? Just curious.
      And who says the Dazzles are good? I’ve yet to read a single comment here, that so much as infers that.

      • Willydeee

        No, I don’t. Marvel has had some underwhelming movies (Iron Man 2, Thor 2, for example). But I don’t pretend that they’re better than they are and that the critics are biased. I’ve enjoyed most movies that marvel and DC have made but I’m not gonna pretend they’re flawless

        • SAMURAI36

          Okay, that’s a balanced perspective. But to pretend that this is how everyone thinks, is myopic. And that includes critics, which I commented on in another post here.

          There’s a reason why 99% of comic book movies get snubbed by awards, & it’s NOT because they are “far from perfect”. No movie is, but that doesn’t stop a lot of these Oscar darlings from taking home a sack full of awards every year.

          And you’d really have to be blind, to not see people acting like Marvel films are somehow the greatest things ever made. You name IM & Thor as examples, but people (not sure if you’re one of them) act as if Silly War was the greatest thing ever to grace the big screen.

          • Willydeee

            If I can be perfectly honest (and call me a fanboy if you want) Civil war was one of Marvel’s most well made movies in this cinimatic universe. The story had a few holes but they balanced a lot of characters well (more so then BvS). Just my opinion.

          • SAMURAI36

            You just proved my point, perfectly. It’s fine that you say that, because I say precisely the opposite about Silly War, just like your POV is likely the precise opposite to mine about BVS.

            However, your last post negates your previous ones, by a huge margin. And just for the record, I can (& have) point(ed) out more than a dozen flaws in Silly War. Others have as well, around the net. And I’m not talking about nitpicky, Cinema Sins type stuff, either.

            And this speaks to the bias that is attached to these films, in one direction or another, that you tried to claim isn’t there. I have a hunch, that you’re at least a little guilty of said bias, yourself. But the reality is, we all are. It’s inescapable.

          • Willydeee

            That’s fair. I lean more to Marvel then DC just like you’re the opposite. It’s whatever you prefer. If DC starts making better quality films (based on my own opinion) then I’ll switch back. Still love both sides regardless

          • SAMURAI36

            Appreciate the honesty about your position. I’d venture to say, that the “quality” (which is a completely subjective notion, btw) is preconceived, since you’ve already aligned yourself with Marvel. I’m sure I don’t have to tell you, that I feel DC’s “quality” is already by far superlative to all others.
            See how that works?

    • Willydeee

      As for the Razzies, they’re a supposed to be a fun parody of awards shows in general. Why would anyone take offense to it?

      • SAMURAI36

        Because, as you can no doubt see from the wording of this very article (& not just here, mind you), the attempt is being made to use the Dazzles as some sort of marker for how people view these particular films.

        • Axxell

          Well in this case, it DOES happen to be indicative of how most people outside of DC fans saw the movie. It first starts with a bad major release.

  • Esoteric Aura

    I love all DCU movies….w the exception of Suicide Squad because they tried to appeal to “families” smh.

    I wish Image and Dark Horse were able to make some more content for the big screen though.

    • SAMURAI36

      SS tried to appeal to families? Hmm, that’s news to me.

    • Marquis de Sade

      Nawww, bruh, ss tried to appeal to the lowest common denominator, and even they pinched their nose afterwards.

      BWAHAHAHA!

  • Esoteric Aura

    If anyone can vote in these awards..then I don’t know why its being taken serious.

  • ClownPrinceOfTroll
  • 12stepCornelius

    Do people actually even care about the Razzies? Thought not.

    • Axxell

      Based on all the comments so far, it seems so…

    • Axxell

      This is supposed to be the “lighter” sequel…just look at how hopeful everyone is…

      • ClownPrinceOfTroll

        Lol batman film about to get pushed back a few months. Due to jl being a mess.. lmao cant tell u the source but u heard it here first.

  • Mišo Mićković

    While i agree to some extent how messed up the movie was (not even you die-hard fans can defend such a take on Lex Luthor,come on.) Batfleck was great in it,even though some of the directions they took the character i didn’t agree with i understood why they did it and see no reason to bash them for it. Cavill was good as Supes too even though he was mopey and depressed most of the movie(not his fault for that). But yeah,Snyder is a good visual director,but as a storyteller he’s not that great.

    • SAMURAI36

      Here we go with the Lex argument. Read any comics lately?

      • Axxell

        Here we go with the alternate world Luthor excuse again…

      • Mišo Mićković

        Matter of fact,i do….it seems you don’t,sir….show me one comic where Lex is so cartoonish as presented in BvS.

  • batghost

    this is easily the most toxic online community in regard to movie fandom. It’s amazing how I can hop around from site to site and see all kinds of engaging conversations and arguments. It’s great when film lovers can come together and agree and disagree . This site however, good lord. Samurai36 is the Donald Trump of commenting. If any of his precious DC movies are talked about in a negative light he claims “critic bias!” “Disney conspiracy!” Man, it’s to the point of sad where I almost want you to get help, but you are such a pr!ck about it, it makes me lose any sort of compassion for you. You are not a film lover by any sense of the word. You are a DC fanboy and that’s it. These movies are terrible and that is not one bit subjective. It is an objective fact that the DC films are not good movies.
