This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
"Hi, I don't think we've met. My name's Clint."
"I don't care."
MVPs: Black Panther, Black Panther's entrance, Black Panther's suit, Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther, Black Panther's gravitas, Black Panther's morality, Zemo, and, of course, our two [insert creepy-crawly name] characters.
Decidedly non-MVPs: Crossbones, Falcon (again), the Russos' annoying too-many-frames-in-an-action-scene obsession, Marvel's crippling inability to actually kill anyone vaguely important.
Everyone else is a decent player in the game though.
I am Groot.
I am Groot. I AM Groot! I'm Groot. I am GROOT? I'm GROOT! I AM GROOT?! I am Groot! I AM Groot. I'm Groot?! I am GROOT! I'm GROOT? I AM GROOT. I am... GROOT!
I am GROOT. I AM GROOT! I'm GROOT?! I AM Groot? I'm Groot! I am Groot?! I am Groot? I AM Groot?! I'm Groot? I am GROOT?! I'm GROOT. I AM GROOT? I... AM... GROOOOOOOT!
I am Groot.

Hello everyone and welcome to the batman v superman awards ceremony!
Let me start by saying that out of all awards given out tonight that it truly does not bring justice to the dedication that everyone brought to this film.
Now, with out further delay, let's begin!
The "I'm glad it wasn't as bad as MoS award":
winner: this movie.
Lowered Expectations Award: winner: the three trailers for this movie. Great job
Best Batman in the…
This is the fifth Pink Panther movie but only the fourth starring Peter Sellers. By this point he and director Blake Edwards have a formula for these films that never fails to entertain. This movie has more prat falls than any of the previous films and really focus's on Seller's brilliant psychical comedy.
I've been complaining for years that Batman doesn't spend enough time shooting people to death, torturing them with red-hot bat symbols, and making bush-league intellectual mistakes. Thank goodness Zack Snyder finally made a movie for me!
Snark aside… My actual review over at Verge gets into how the film is built entirely around reacting to, and trying to combat, the reactions to Man Of Steel.

I think Disney is making a terrible mistake by trying to virtually erase Song Of The South from existence.
Is it racially insensitive? Of course it is.
It's a film from the forties that takes place during the Civil War in Georgia.
Disney is trying to sweep this one under the rug and try to maintain a squeaky clean image. This is an impossible task.
If Disney wants to be politically correct they need to get rid of their entire catalogue. In fact, they should just stop making movies all together.
The scene where a priest, pastor, and rabbi critique Jesus' portrayal in a studio's new flagship film is just one example of what makes Hail, Caesar! one of the funniest of the Coen's films, but, like most of their recent output, it's the bigger themes lurking below the highly entertaining surface that will have me revisiting it again and again.
