    Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice 2016

    ★★ Watched 04 Jul, 2016

    While the additional footage fixes some of the plot holes and helps with the pacing; at the end of the day it's still the same film and doesn't solve the films major problems. Namely the characterisation of our heroes (and villains ) and the overall plot.

    The Death of "Superman Lives": What Happened? 2015

    ★½ Watched 15 Jul, 2015 3

    While the information is relatively interesting, and the use of concept art and archival footage is good. The overall quality of the film making is pretty damn terrible. Not a fan of the director being physically part of the interviews bobbing his head up and down and awkwardly drinking water.

    Decent film, Nice and short. I actually felt every blow of the last fight. Curious as to why Baruchel who co wrote the film gave himself the most irritating role imaginable!

    Justice League: War 2014

    ★½ Watched 26 Jan, 2014

    I tend to really enjoy these DCU animated films, especially The Dark knight returns/red hood/crisis of two earth. However Justice League War has to be the weakest of DCU film to date. While the fight sequences were outstanding. The characterisations of our heroes was pretty awful and the plot was more or less no existent. Want a good Justice League origin film check out New Frontier .
