Is anyone surprised the movie sucked? It's DC this was like DC's chance to not fuck up but they did and now I don't see how anyone can look forward to the Wonder Woman movie since obviously D.C. can't get their act together. .


Well, yeah, I was kind of surprised. "Disappointed", actually.
All throughout the "DC Trump-rally" wars last March, those of us normal CBM fans were sort of hoping that not having Zack Snyder would be a little tighter, more energetic and entertaining, and clinch the argument about why you shouldn't have Zack Snyder direct movies. Hey, we were waiting five months just to rub this movie in Snyder's face like sandpaper, and if it got good August reviews, it was the very toilet we hoped to stick Snyder's head in for his well-deserved swirly.
And, thought having unknown characters would be a Marvel-like kick to the head to get Warner focused off of trying to build their studio around Batsy.

But, looks like the Warner/DC elm-disease is at the root: If you want to make CBM's, you make them for everybody, not an isolated group of time-bomb-teen fanboys who believe that going angry and hysterically-pretentious is how you "prove" something to the world. You'll get your one weekend as they all storm the gates at opening, but you won't get anyone else.
David Ayer just bailed the best buckets he could out of a sinking ship.

Just posting my opinion like everyone else has in this thread. That is what the forums are for after all. And it's not that I don't like DC movies and characters, I grew up on the old Batman and Superman movies and series and really like them, at least most of them, but the characters in this movie never really appealed to me from the franchise at all. Yes, they're great villains, but to me they're great because they have the heroes to play off of, not because they're by themselves in a group going around destroying things. That's why this movie never appealed to me in the first place, and why I'm not surprised it got a bad rating on Rotten Tomatoes. As for the petition thing, I take stuff on change.org with a grain of salt as I've seen some not so lofty petitions on there.

It's incredible how many DC fanboys can't accept the fact that the DC Cinematic Universe is not good. It's clear that DC and Warner Bros. are desperate to compete with Marvel, but they're doing it all wrong. I've always been a big fan of these characters ever since I watched the animated series for Batman and Superman in the 90's, but introducing so many characters at the same time in just three movies while destroying some of them like Lex Luthor is incredibly stupid.

As a DC fan it's sad to see that the movies are so bad compared to Marvel. Granted not all Marvel movies are great, the Iron Man sequels were actually terrible, and I have very mixed feelings about Thor 2 but at least the others are awesome, they're not just good comic book movies, they're good action movies, and their combination of great writing and action is what makes people like them. DC and WB don't understand this at all. I'll give Wonder Woman and Justice League a chance, but I don't have faith in them anymore.

"Iron Man sequels were actually terrible"

I thought they were pretty good myself.

Now that I think about it I exaggerated a bit, Iron Man 2 was the one I didn't like all that much, it had too many plots going on at the same time for my taste. The third one was a lot better by being focused on only one story, and the action was better, but the twist involving the character of the Mandarin was terrible in my opinion and lowered my final rating for the movie.

From what I hear the acting is good and everyone does well with what they're given (especially Smith and Robbie), but the editing is atrocious and one of the biggest letdowns for the film, with lots of clearly shortened scenes

Another thing I heard is that the director's original cut was much longer, and that Warner shortened that to make their own cut, wouldn't surprise me if the theatrical release is the Warner cut and the original is probably a lot more well put together

I still want to see it, though. I mean, it's not going to be flawless by any stretch, but I at least want to see it.

I realize IM2 was supposed to be the sort of quasi-version of Marvel's "Demon in a Bottle" print-comic storyline, but that one made Stark sympathetic--You don't turn Stark BACK into a complete Downey-binge jerk after we spent the first film watching him learn how not to be one.
And Sam Rockwell playing conniving Justin Hammer as a Dana Carvey SNL sketch?...Oh, Jon, you're just not taking this seriously at all, are you?

And IM3 was what happens when you let the star pick his own director, who's never read Marvel comics in his life.
If he had, he would have known that print-Marvel already did create a more PC incarnation of the Mandarin, and we didn't need to go through....you know.
Like IM2, they wanted to warp one of the best known print-story arcs, but "Extremis" ends up so unrecognizably screenwriter-embellished, they might have just stuck with the "Tony & the kid" plot and left it at that.

I thought rotten tomatoes is a platform for the audience to review a movie. I don't really see the point in using a picture of it while complaining about critics.


Rotten Tomatoes IS a critic site--It may include those millennial net-critics who publish reviews on established blogs and movie-news sites, but it features the NYT, Variety, etc. reviews into the percentages. (And highlights the "real" critics from actual newspapers with stars.)
https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/suicide_squad_2016/
It may even be true that most critics are reviewing Squad for being "more BvS", and punishing the son for the sins of the father.
At least it's getting real bad reviews, about the messy script and inconsistent directorial tone, which Snyder would have been glad to get on the BvS reviews.

But what this is is more DC Fans trying to circle the wagons and saying all those "mean critics" are against them, just because Zack Snyder and David Ayer set out to make dark, messy DC movies ultra-targeting ultra-fans, and missing everybody else.
And then crying that critics and studios "kiss up to Disney/Marvel", just because Marvel knows enough to try and persuade mainstream non-fan audiences about the appeal of their heroes and try to win converts, instead of blasting existing hardcore fans with dark private geek-orgies--And saying "All Marvel movies are kiddy-quipping clowns!" just because those movies use actual humor and try to appeal to more than one audience.

True to character, DC fans are responding in a...presidential fashion:
"Movie critics who said mean things about BvS and Squad are acting completely irresponsible and unprofessional for their insulting comments, and should not be allowed to do their job!--Tweet now for their immediate removal!"


ah, ok, never noticed the professional critics on that side but I'm not really using it anyway.
I agree with the rest ;).

Oh man no they were bad sooo baaaaaad. The only really bad movies marvel has done recently.
The only good thing about Ironman 3 is 2 doesn't look nearly as shitty as it originally did compared to 3.
