It sounds long, but 2 hours of that is just Superman and Batman screaming "Martha" at each other.

So the three hour long Batman V Superman cut is better than the theatrical version but I don't know if I can make it through 4 hours of Justice League.

Cool!

I saw reviews saying it wasn't as good as the original but I don't really mind. I enjoy my horror movies and wouldn't mind returning to that setting.


I’ve seen it.

Not a patch on the original. It’s awful. Dodgy CGI car scenes, dodgy CGI zombies, dodgy CGI blood. No real ties to the original, apart from coming back to Busan after the aftermath of the original.

And no train in sight. If it wasn’t for the “ties” to the original, people wouldn’t give a toss about it as it screams like a cheap budget zombie film.

The Snyder Cut of the Justice League has also revealed something exceptionally cool.... Spoiler for a hero reveal. If you Google it the casting is also a spoiler.... But it's brilliant news.

Martian Manhunter

Wonder Woman 1984 is up on Apple to rent for £15.99, I want to watch it but not at £16. Hope one of the big streaming services pick it up when no one pays £16 to watch it at home.

To save money;

Invite all your friends round and charge an admission plus booking fee.

Over charge them for popcorn and fizzy pop as well.

In this current climate, you could look at making a small profit on your £15.99 rental charge.

No one should be paying any amount of money for WW84.

People should be paying you to watch WW84.

Don't pay for WW84.

Is it actually that bad? Wonder Woman and Shazam are the only good DC Universe movies so I had high hopes for WW1984.

It has a female lead, Taf's furious that they didn't give Batman a chance to shine.

It's strawberry floating dire. The only good thing is Pedro Pascal, who is ace, but Gal Gadot especially is terrible.

It's also more than a little racist

Its portrayal of Egypt for one:

https://www.msn.com/en-ae/news/other/wo ... r-BB1clSVU
https://slate.com/culture/2020/12/wonde ... acism.html

In his quest for world domination, Pascal’s Maxwell Lord visits Emir Said Bin Abydos (Amr Waked), an Egyptian oil magnate whose holdings Lord plans to seize in exchange for granting a wish with the ancient magic stone he now controls. But apart from a magazine cover identifying the emir as the “King of Crude,” it’s not really clear who the character is supposed to be. The movie presents him as a monarch, and he is referred to as “your highness,” but Egypt was a democracy in the 1980s. What’s more, emir is a Muslim term that hasn’t been used to describe Egyptian leadership in a thousand years; emir is nearly exclusively a descriptor used in countries like Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. His character’s costume, like his identity, is confused, with a headscarf and a three-piece gray pinstriped suit underneath an open blue robe with gold trim. Although traditional Egyptian male dress includes garments like the binish, a long, dark overcoat, the emir’s look is more in line with the styles of Saudi Arabia or the UAE, where it is customary to pair a head wrap (shemagh) with long robes (thobe). (At the time, Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak often appeared in tailored suits.) The women of WW84’s Cairo, including a young girl who Diana saves from a speeding truck, all wear hijabs and niqābs, but during that period in Egyptian history, wearing those items was actually a topic of widespread debate as the country struggled to determine how much of a role the Islamic faith was to take in public life.


It takes broad middle eastern tropes and applies them everywhere without thought. It also features Gal Gadot, a staunch supporter of Israeli forays into Palestinian territories, saving three arab looking kids from a missile (Gadot specifically supported an IDF attack that killed three kids who were just playing football a few years back).
