March 26th, 2016.
I've just come back from watching Batman v Superman : Dawn of Justice, and unsurprisingly it sucked. I'm not sure why that would surprise anyone, given the same people who make a movie that sucked last time were given even more money this time... and guess what it sucked more.
Basically, they doubled down on The Stupid and maths happened.
That said, the premiere was fun. I enjoyed that. I didn't have to pay (except I took a day off work so damn you WB you DID cost me) and it met some fun people and I think Gal Gadot possibly likes me as much as I like her (which I'd say is a lot). Some highlights from the premiere are below, with a link to the full journal on each image as well as by clicking here
A longer "Movies Pessimistically Appraised" review may eventually follow, but for now my thoughts on Batman v Superman are copy-pasted from my stream-of-consciousness typing here:
Oh, and/but in other news there were actually two premieres in the past week or so ("Eddie The Eagle" with Hugh Jackman and Taron Egerton, and the BFI Flare premiere of 'The Pass') AND the 2016 Empire Awards (with Star Wars' Daisy Ridley and Anthony Daniels).
More premieres and events have been scheduled. Good times. Bad movies. Wouldn't have it any other way.
