Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice ★★★★★

More thoughtful, purposeful, layered, insightful, perceptive and competent than 95% of all other superhero cinema. Snyder's examinations of power and myth are bold and meaningful, throwing restraint into the wind and embracing the type of grandiose and operatic film-making Lucas mastered with Revenge of the Sith. I've defended this movie more times than I can count, I basically have a Batman v Superman stump speech at this point. The Martha moment is brilliant, tone impeccable and thematic content mature and complex. I anticipate the day society embraces this, but it's a pity it's legacy may not live on in future DC films due most maligning it upon release. I pray Warner Bros sticks to it's guns and realizes giving massive budgets and control to visionary auteurs without studio intervention is what will propel them ahead of Marvel.
