    Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

    ★★★

    The thing that has stuck with me most from this film is that Henry Cavill's chest hair peeks out the top of the Superman costume.

    I chatted with someone who saw this 3 times at IMAX. Why? Was it for the chest hair? How tall is the chest hair on an IMAX screen? One storey tall? Two? These thoughts have haunted me for the last couple of years.

    The Clock

    ★★★★½

    "There's no clock!"

    I was surprised by how often the time wasn't shown on screen and by how much filler there was (some of which worked better than others) but the child next to me sounded utterly betrayed.

    Anyway, with that I have completed all 24 hours. Much like with cigarettes after Thank You For Smoking, I'll forever be hyper aware of clocks in films, and annoyed by any use of Big Ben as an establishing shot.

    "THIS TIME THERE ARE NO INTERVIEWS."

    False advertising! Lestat held a press conference!

    How do you respond differently to animation than to other movies?

    Some people I've come across expect more from animation. Fantasy elements, gimmicks to justify the decision to not just film it. (When they're not just dismissing it altogether as for kids.)

    This is the kind of animation they'd have an issue with. It's a slice of life film, with simple situations and shots. But to discount it because of the medium is a real shame. It's full of beauty.
