Total movie nerd
Not perfect but I honestly really enjoyed the ride. It has a tendency to over-explain the plot a bit, but there are some good twists throughout that help make up for it. And when it gets violent it’s explosive, fast, and brutal. I used to be completely against the idea of film franchises, but when it’s something like this, I can definitely get behind it. Especially since it looks like the second part will still be directed by Hoon-jung.
A towering achievement. Everything that big screen entertainment should be. A return to form for Snyder and the best thing he’s made since Watchmen. I never saw the initial 2017 cut of this, so I really enjoyed all the surprises in the plot.
I went a little crazy with my method of watching this. I woke up on the morning of the 18th and realized I did not want to see this on a tv. So I rented out a theater…

I honestly think the black and white works really well for this. I thought I wouldn’t like it and change it to color halfway through but I ended up just sticking with it. The final night battle sequence was particularly awesome. The darkness and almost gothic nature of some of the scenes really make the black and white work perfectly.
On rewatch it completely holds up. 4 hours go by in a second. And it’s emotions…
