    New movie. Same old shit.

    The only thing that really distinguishes this mess from BvS is a shorter runtime, which makes me fell a little less like I was beat over the head senselessly. 

    This movie also has the (detrimental) difference of being more coherent than its DC cinematic counterparts (save WW), which really makes it less surprising to watch. 

    The screenplay is hot garbage and the editing is atrocious. As much as it is slightly less of a chore to sit through as Snyder’s previous entry into this franchise, it’s far from any movie I’d ever want to watch again.

    But this. This damn movie. This is exactly the kind of preachy, pandering bullshit that studios think they can churn out in December and collect awards come February. For what it's worth, I hope no one sees it and I hope…

    It's a damn shame what Disney is doing with these live-action reboots. It's a damn shame they took one as good and beloved as Beauty and the Beast and turned it into a lackluster and poorly stitched together mess of green screens and charmless melodrama.

    I mean I really wish this was better than it is, but there's just so many poor choices in the script and direction of the film. I could see every green screen in this film…
