    "I'm Marty Scorsese and trust me, Zack Snyder's Justice League is True Cinema™" —Martin Scorsese in a text to me just moments ago

    I loved this! This is the big dumb self-indulgent Zack Snyder extravaganza that I hoped for after seeing Batman v Superman in 2016. It was huge and bombastic and epic and fun, such a massive difference from the terrible Whedon cut from 2017.

    Didn't quite get into the Joker thing in the epilogue but I can easily…

    ★★★★

    One of the problems with a lot of Dragonball movies is pacing, where it seems like Goku and the gang are powering up and going through their motions without purpose. I think Dragonball Super Broly avoided that, its plot had weight and it didn't feel rushed at all. I liked the rewritten version of the Broly / Planet Vegeta origin and I liked that Broly actually felt like a rounded character instead of just a muscle head. Animation was sharp…
