    Zack Snyder's Justice League

    ★★★

    After years of saying the Snyder Cut didn’t exist, and even if it did, it would be horrible: it's both real, and not horrible. Not great, but good. An improvement over the 2017 theatrical version in almost every way.

The first half is almost entirely scenes of characters sitting down at a table or walking explaining the plot with often incomprehensible editing, and the worst sound mixing I've heard in a major motion picture probably ever.

    There is so much in the way of plot that buries any interesting story at its heart. While Nolan's never been one to have characters…
