  • Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

    Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice 2016

    ★★★ Watched 27 Mar, 2016

    Yes, the story's kind of a mess. It's disjointed, filled with unnecessary setups to scenes that advance nothing. The Superman/God spin suggested in MoS is heavy-handed and repetitive here. Characters with potential are wiped out for no reason. People are kidnapped and while that's a staple motivation in comics, something new, please.

    ★★★½ Added

    The best story in any of the Dragon Ball Z films. If you ever wanted to know what the big deal was with Dragon Ball, this is as good a place to start as any. As worthy a hero's beginning as Spider-Man, Batman, you name it.
