I'm going to be problematic and say hetero girls will handwave away any suggestion that there is anything wrong with that dude.

Cool, Warner Brothers has decided to basically ruin Rotten Tomatoes' credibility:

That does not look good for the DCEU.
Even BvS made money though, so I expect they'll keep flogging it.

"However, a study released in September found that there is no positive or negative correlation between Rotten Tomatoes scores and box office numbers."

Well, that kind of says it all, doesn't it?

It still must make money for Fandango. Now I'll be going to metacritic.

Some friends talked me into going to see Justice League. It's a C+ movie, but if we're grading on the DCEU curve it gets a B+. Heroes aren't the most interesting ever but aren't terrible either. Action scenes are OK. Dialogue isn't grating. Villain is totally generic.

Same basic take, but I'd just add that Batman and Superman are way more boring than the other four heroes, even Cyborg.

Best part of the movie: Gal Gadot butt shots (in pants, but tight leather pants).

Yeah, I started wondering if it was a Weinstein production.

I found the first season of Legends of Tomorrow absolutely unwatchable, which bummed me out as I like Flash and Supergirl which are in the same universe and share some characters. (Arrow takes itself waaaaayyyy too seriously so I have never gotten into that one.) Second season had some good moments but a lot of forgettable ones -- plus the same problem as the first season, where they are chasing the villain through time and run into him in EVERY SINGLE EPISODE but you know he's going to get away every time before the finale, so there is no tension or drama at all.

Plus the cast has a character named Rory, but also includes Arthur Darvill, who played Rory on Doctor Who, so every time anyone says "Rory" I think they are talking about Arthur Darvill.

I'm only a few episodes into the third season but I'm digging it so far. They seem to have figured out their rhythm and are making the cheesiness of the whole outfit work for them. I was particularly tickled by a couple lampshade hangings -- Victor Garber refusing to visit the Titanic because "whoever built that ship should be shot," and Dominic Purcell perking up when considering a "prison break."
I should have listened to Warren. He was right again as usual.

God damn it, Legends! They had a couple amazingly funny, cheesy episodes and I was practically shrieking with joy that they'd figured out their rhythm at last. ... And then they go and establish a big bad who they'll run into in every episode but he'll get away every time. And he's someone they ALREADY DEFEATED but who came back to life. :evil: :evil: :evil: You had success in reach, and you threw it away!
