    Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice 2016

    Watched 27 Mar, 2016

    This film shows us the folly of our seeming collective drive to want everything to piece together and be part of some larger greater whole. A baroque, loud, emotional, larger than life mess is brought low and constrained by the need for the next movie to exist and for everyone to get along for the follow up. We aren't allowed to see what this movie could have been or should have been, there are flashes, and glimpses but the future…

    A troubling picture of the modern world, and the best picture of how interconnected and tied together all parts of our lives are.

    The best intentions and all that.

    I saw this movie on 3 hours of sleep after 8 hours of school and a small nap. To say it was the perfect film to basically be in a hazy fever dream state to watch is an understatement. I really enjoyed this and what I think I enjoyed most is how much it is all nightmare logic that doesn't bother explaining a lot.

    The main 'villain' also has an IMPOSSIBLE amount of charisma that when arrives on the scene you are locked into his every word.

    The movie is a lot like the punk music that fuels it and its main characters. Aggressive, fast paced and very in the moment. A really really good modern siege movie with all the characters actually behaving like people would in that situation and succeeding or failing because of it. Good messy action too.
