So many ludicrous scenes in this movie. "Save Martha!" And why would the fastidious Clark Kent step into Louis' bath with his clothes on. And why the heck would Louis allow him?  Ewww!

This thing has been on my DVR, unwatched, for three weeks. 

I keep finding other things to do and watch, instead. One of these days, I may just go for it. I dunno.

Just wait until a day after you've done something worthy of self-punishment.

For heaven's sake Greg, DON'T DO IT! I've taken that bullet for you! Find something, ANYTHING, better to do! I'm not exaggerating - it REALLY is that bad. At least "Plan 9 From Outer Space" can be mocked. This piece of excrement doesn't even have fun aspect to it.

Greg - you think we're joking. We're not. But you can't tell the taste of the poison until you've consumed it.

But your life will be less unhappy if you skip this movie. I promise you.

Greg, did you ever watch the 2015 FF movie?  I skipped it in the theatres, but gave it on shot on cable.  An hour and a half I'll never get back. Having seen  Batman vs Superman when it came out, I have a feeling you might feel the same way.  Not good.  Not good at all.  Depends on how you like to see Batman and Superman characterized, I suppose.  If you don't mind Batman killing a bunch of people maybe it won't bother you as much.

+++++++

DVRed it. Thirty seconds in, I said "Yeah, no.", and fast-forwarded to the end and then deleted it. Better ways to spend my time, y'know?

My two cents, Greg: virtually all comicbook-based movies, because they are so appallingly off-model, repel me. But, since I already pay for cable, I sometimes have sampled them over the past 15 years. A desire to be informed and not just assume all is crap prompt me to do this. Considering that I'm never actively patronizing these movies in the theater, I would watch something (or more often chunks of something), if the mood struck.

A few of the minutes I'd caught was of Lex showing Superman the Polaroid photos of the tied-&-tortured Martha Kent.

Felt like I needed a shower, pronto. Can't imagine the sick feeling some parents had, who may have inadvertently brought their kids to see this one...

Wise move regarding that FF movie, Greg.  Wish I'd done the same.  I wouldn't pay to go see it.  I have the cable whether i watch that movie or not.  Still, 90 minutes that could have been far better used.  Awful, just awful.

Watching Batman v Superman. The movie is half over. I am bored and depressed. This might be the worst superhero movie ever. Maybe because their seems to be no actual heroes in it. Well...Wonder Woman hasn't shown up yet. I think DC should hire Marvel to make their movies.

Thinking about Matthew's suggestion, it is kind of fun picturing Chris Evans as a decent, gently humorous Superman playing off RDJ as a hipper-than-the-room yet still gravitas-generating Batman. Maybe have Scarlett Johansson stroll by the satellite commisary snack table munching on a carrot stick wearing a modern neoprene version of Cathy Lee Crosby's TV-Movie costume while Mark Ruffalo as GL banters with Jeremy Renner as the Flash. The Troublalert goes off and everyone convenes in the meeting room to find that Tom Hiddleson as the Joker has reactivated Amazo only now with a laugh track or something. Could be fun...

I'm looking forward to Wonder Woman.  I mention this because I've been very anti-DC in terms of the Batman and Superman movies.  Since Superman Returns and the first Dark Knight movie I haven't actually wanted to see any of them.  

I was hoping the positive reaction to WW in BVS and the early impression of the stand alone WW movie meant that DC was forcing a shift in what their flagship characters were looking like on screen.

Ben Affleck's cameo in Suicide Squad and the movie itself, although flawed, seemed to get the tone and flavor closer even though there were plenty of warts.  Still, movement in the right direction IMO.

Granted, I'm still pretty skeptical but I was inching toward giving them another chance.  I hadn't seen anything on the Justice League movie or been reading any reports.  This image came across my FB feed today though:
 
How do they honestly think those costumes look good or even acceptable?  Is it a case of good intentions but just being way too immersed in the project?  Getting so far removed from the source and not realizing it?

This is how a super man should look(not the facial likeness, just the size and stature):
Okay, Superman isn't in the JL photo so that's not fair to judge but I assume it will continue to be an issue.

But, why couldn't Affleck be in an outfit like this instead of that ridiculous looking armor?:
Cosplayers are even getting Cyborg done better IMO:
And either of the TV Flashes is better than that mess in the JL pic:

New costumes for the movies mean PLENTY of new toy opportunities, and clothing sales options. And it also helps with anonymity... if someone knows Batman, Superman, or Wonder Woman, then this will drag them in with exciting NEW characters... and if they aren't immediately recognizable as Flash, Cyborg, or Aquaman, even some "experienced" DC fans might be taken in a bit.

Or the creators have to pee in the broth so that their own genius can be shown. "Look how _I_ made Aquaman look! I'M A GENIUS!!!"

And to parapharse Mr. Byrne, Batman in armor isn't Batman... just a guy with gimmicks in  a suit of armor.

To be fair Andy those fan costumes you posted are more accurate than the actual ones appearing in the comics at this point.

It's sad that every time we get a new version of cyborg he seems to get even chunkier and more primitive. He started out all elegant. Usually tech IMPROVES over time.

They didn't want Cyborg to look like Iron Man...
So they made him look like Ultron. Problem solved.

DC movies take all the wrong lessons from the Marvel movies.

Others have noted elsewhere on the 'Net that Cyborg seems to have a Transformer head in his crotch area. WARNING: Once seen, it can't be unseen.

So, pretty much everything but part of his head is robotic?

And his crotch is a Transformer.

Right?
