    Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

    ★★★★

    I thought the theatrical cut of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was a fine film. Nothing amazing, but not the trash heap that many claimed it to be. Upon viewing the Ultimate Edition for the first time, I find myself wishing that this had been the theatrical release.

The performances are great, Zimmer is a master, Hoytema killed it with the cinematography, sound design/mixing was stellar, and yeah, this movie gave me heart attacks.
