    Justice League


    Avengers, assemble! But… don't do it over the course of many movies where we establish your characters and personal motivations and the worlds you come from. Let's just fast-forward to the place where we all collide in a big messy series of fight sequences, and hope a couple of lines about our hopes and dreams are enough to establish our humanity! Then we can all fight a big CGI thing like 20 times in the exact same way!

    I mean, maybe you want to watch people around the world look worried, then frantic, as a cheap-looking digital catastrophe of one flavor or another bears down on them. Maybe you can't get enough Gerard Butler. Maybe 2012 would have been your favorite movie except you're explosively allergic to John Cusack. If so, hop on board for this not-screened-for-critics garbage bag of a production.

    If not, my full review at The Verge and a few giggles at the trailer will probably hold you until the next digital-disaster movie rolls around.

    Get Out


    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


    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.
