    Perhaps the dopiest movie ive seen in my life. Admittedly could not come at this in good faith at all... i fear my brain would have to be scrubbed down pretty hard before i ever could.

    Wish i liked this as much as my friends, guess there are just moments of lost momentum and cringey dialogue that made me check out a bit. Would be more forgiving maybe if BvS didnt transcend those issues and then some.

    "uhhh, yea, might think twice before i book my swedish vacation !!"
    "tfw u have a bad trip lol"…
