Zack Snyder's Justice League

Zack Snyder's Justice League ★★★★½

This is really good. I cried two times I believe. The first two hours are completely unlike anything ever put in a film like this, it’s contemplative and in absolutely no rush and it is such a breath of fresh air in a genre that is done basically the same way over and over time and time again. The second act falls into the just pretty good category, not bad at all but more what you would expect (though some great moments still happen here too). But the third act caught me completely off guard. In fact, I truly believe it’s a top 3 third act in any comic book movie ever and it’s a true contender for first place in that category because it is ridiculously fucking stunning. Then Snyder has the nerve to leave us with SOME OF THE MOST EXCITING CLIFFHANGERS IMAGINABLE and we just have to live with it? I’m gonna need him back to follow up on this shit because UMMMM WTFFFF. You gotta respect that they gave him the opportunity to complete his vision and he was like WELL THEN LET ME TAKE THIS OPPORTUNITY AND THROW EVERYTHING I CAN THINK OF AT THE WALL as he always does. Gah.

But I just want to say that I’ve been a mega fan of DC’s characters basically my whole life and it means a lot to now have a Justice League movie that I can love.
