    Paths of Glory

    ★★★★

    We're comparing this film with Wonder Woman on The Next Picture Show podcast, because both films are about World War I trench warfare, leading by example, bad leadership, and the causes of combat. Very different tones, but this cynical and sometimes painfully funny Stanley Kubrick film says a lot about the core causes of mass combat, and why it's appropriate to watch the military leadership of any country with a jaded, cautious eye.

    Boris Karloff's face is one of the best special effects in classic cinema.

    ★★★★½

    This movie is funny. This movie is political. This movie is intelligent and wicked and very, very calculated. This movie is sometimes visually stunning, and impeccably acted.

    But mostly, it's scary as hell.

    For the love of cinema, do not watch the spoilery-ass trailers. Do not read any reviews unless you trust the reviewers to be circumspect about giving away the plot. Go in as blind as possible and just let the story's surprises unfold. Assuming you're okay with scary…

    Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

    ★★½

    I've been complaining for years that Batman doesn't spend enough time shooting people to death, torturing them with red-hot bat symbols, and making bush-league intellectual mistakes. Thank goodness Zack Snyder finally made a movie for me!

    Snark aside… My actual review over at Verge gets into how the film is built entirely around reacting to, and trying to combat, the reactions to Man Of Steel.
