Zack Snyder's Justice League

Zack Snyder's Justice League ★★★½

The epilogues are awful, but the movie itself succeeds on Snyder’s insane terms — slow-mo images that look like splash panels, metahumans with great abs, and so on. As an amateur critic experience, it’s fantastic. I have rarely had as much fun *thinking* about movie-making as I did while learning what was cut and what was added once the movie was handed to Whedon. (Hard to pick a WORST tweak, but Whedon adding some goofy getting-to-know you dialogue to the Steppenwolf scientist torture scene is up there — in Snyder’s version the heroes don’t just banter as people get killed.)
