Zack Snyder’s version of “Justice League” kind of sucked, I prefer the Joss Whedon version more to be honest…

So last night, I finally gotten around to watching the Zack Snyder cut of “Justice League” on BluRay. I watched both parts in one night. That was Snyder’s original “vision” of the film.

To be honest, I didn’t like it all that much. Kind of boring. Way too much CGI that it felt very cartoony and I thought that Snyder over did the slow mo effects. You all know how Snyder is obsessed with “slow mo” in all of his films? Well that effect is all over “Justice League” and it was kind of tiring my eyes.

Plus the story was kind of silly and dumb. I can see why Warner Bros. refused to release it at first ’cause they were right in the beginning, it was pretty “unwatchable”.

So I don’t get all the positive reviews of this version and I felt that all this hype was for nothing? Don’t get me wrong, though… I thought the film had some cool moments and a few surprising cameos. I didn’t like the way Batman’s story was going in this one either.

Like the title says, I prefer the Joss Whedon version more which I will plan on re-watching pretty soon. Making a perfect “Justice League” movie is hard ’cause of too many characters and all, ya know?

I also thought Snyder’s version was too crowded with way too much star power actors, ya know? Whedon’s version was lesser of a headache.

WB’s shouldn’t have released Snyder’s version at all and kept it in the vault but they were forced to release it due to popular demand, ya know? I think Snyder is a fine film maker ’cause I’m a fan of most of his work. I just didn’t get why Snyder’s version was way “overhyped” and it continues to be “overhyped” now.


Will Warner Bros. ever release the Zack Snyder version of “Justice League” (or better known as the “Snyder Cut”)??? I hope they do and they should!!!


So now that director Zack Snyder and Ben Affleck has officially joined the “Snyder Cut” movement, will Warner Bros. soon release the Snyder version of the latest “Justice League”???

I haven’t been following this story much so I thought I would finally look into it and post my thoughts. I believe what led to this movement is that Zack Snyder filmed a much longer version of the film “Justice League”… I’ve read that Snyder’s version was much more than 3 hrs. long. About three and a half hour long film, I think. It turned out that Warner Bros. hated the Snyder version so much that they didn’t want to release it at all. That’s how director Joss Whedon came in to take over for re-shoots and re-writes so therefor, the Joss Whedon version of “Justice League” brought the film down to a two hour film.

Once Joss Whedon’s version of “Justice League” came out in theaters, it received mostly negative criticism by fans. This sparked interest of DC/Warner fans that they think Warner Bros. should release the Snyder cut ’cause they might think the Snyder version would be a lot better. The “Snyder Cut” movement has been going on through social media for a long time now. Jason Momoa already expressed interest in the “Snyder Cut”. Now Zack Snyder himself and Ben Affleck joined the movement.

Even though Snyder directed the original version all by himself, it’s not all up to him to release it publicly since it’s Warner Bros.’s film so it’s their prerogative whether or not they want to release it. Even Kevin Smith wants the Snyder Cut released.

Even though I have no problem with Joss Whedon’s theatrical release of “Justice League” as I think it’s pretty good, I really hope Warner Bros. releases the Snyder version. I think we deserve to see Snyder’s take on the “Justice League” film like it was originally intended, ya know? Warner Bros. may hate the Snyder version but that doesn’t mean the rest of us will hate it. They should make a DVD/BluRay exclusive release of Snyder’s version, I don’t see why not?

I know Snyder’s: “Man of Steel” and “B vs. S: Dawn of Justice” got mixed reviews but I fuckin’ LOVED both of those films. I thought both were really good and still stand by it. I think the Snyder version of “Justice League” would be really good too. The reason I loved the Dawn of Justice film so much is that I thought they told the Death of Superman and Doomsday story so well which people don’t get. That story finally deserved to get told on the big screen and “Dawn of Justice” did just that. Plus “Dawn of Justice” was a badass action film too.

With that being said, I hope Warner Bros. does the smart thing and lets all see it ’cause we deserve to see it. We just gotta keep pressuring them.


Zack Snyder backs out of directing “Justice League” film after suicide of his daughter…

“Justice League” director Zack Snyder is going through a bit of a tragedy himself. His 20 year old daughter committed suicide back in March. Why did he make this news public for the whole world to see now? Well, he wants to help bring awareness to suicide which seems to be a problem more and more these days.

Zack and his wife had to pull out of filming ’cause they’re going through some difficult times. Joss Whedon immediately stepped in to finish the rest of the film.


Sad. Thoughts and prayers go out to the Snyder family too. I don’t think you’ll see Snyder directing a movie for a long time. He’s probably gonna take a long hiatus from Hollywood.

Most of the “Justice League” movie is pretty much finished, the article says that Whedon needs to film additional scenes and do the post-production part of it. Post-production meaning editing, special effects, sounds, musical scores, etc.

I am looking forward to seeing “Justice League”, though. Can’t wait to see it. I’m sure it’ll be way better than “Man of Steel” and “Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice”.


Film Review: “Avengers: Age of Ultron”…

Starring: Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson

Directed by: Joss Whedon

Today, I’ve just seen the new Avengers movie and here is my review:

Plot/Synopsis: When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, the Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance. As the villainous Ultron emerges, it is up to the Avengers to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for a global adventure.

The new Avengers movie, “Age of Ultron” was real good. This film is getting a lot of negative criticism but I thought it was better than the first one. People are complaining that this film has way too many characters but keep in mind that this is the Avengers. It’s supposed to have a lot of characters. The Avengers is a superhero group that is supposed to get bigger and bigger. So you can expect the third Avengers movie to add even more characters. If you’re complaining this film has too many characters, I assume you’ve never read the comics before ’cause the comics had way too many characters. If you’ve read the comics, you would see that the Avengers can go up to 10 members or more. Same thing with the X-Men.

The action in this movie was more fun and exciting than the first movie. I understand how people are upset with no Loki but hey can’t have the same villain in every movie. Gotta give other villains a chance ’cause there were plenty of other villains other than Loki in the Avengers comics. What’s great in Avengers 2 you get to see a lot more Hulk when you didn’t see him that much in the first one. I like Mark Ruffalo, he’s a really good actor, probably the best actor of this cast, in my opinion.

“Age of Ultron” was really fun and a blast to watch. I’ll give it a score of 5 out of 5 as in “excellent”.


“The Avengers: Age of Ultron” trailer is finally here and it looks freakin’ badass!!!

Despite Loki not having anything to do with this film, the new Avengers movie still looks bad ass! Looks even better than the first. The new one looks very exciting.

I know this movie is gonna get a lot of critics ’cause of the CGI and stuff but it’s just a movie, ya know?

“Age of Ultron” looks awesome and I’ll be there for this one for sure.


Report: Joss Whedon officially on board for “The Avengers” sequel!!!

In the beginning, Joss Whedon wasn’t sure if he was going to be on board to be director for, “The Avengers” sequel, now it appears that he is on board! I can’t see no one else but him directing these movies ’cause no one else could make it as good as he does. I’m glad he’s on! I thought “The Avengers” was one of the best movies of this year, so far. I was very impressed with the film.

Yes, I’m sure Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye will return but I’m sure, they will add a few more heroes to the team. I’m sure Tom Hiddleston will return as Loki, but they will probably add a few more villains too.

“The Avengers” was a pretty big team. I never read the comics, but I know they keep adding more members as they go along.

I can’t wait for the Blu Ray release of “The Avengers”.

AICN, reports.


Film Review: The Avengers

Starring: Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Samuel L. Jackson, Tom Hiddleston

Directed by: Joss Whedon

Well, I finally went out and saw it this afternoon. Finally, saw, “The Avengers”! Here is my review…

Plot/synopsis: Nick Fury is director of S.H.I.E.L.D, an international peace keeping agency. The agency is a who’s who of Marvel Super Heroes, with Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Hawkeye and Black Widow. When global security is threatened by Loki and his cohorts, Nick Fury and his team will need all their powers to save the world from disaster.

Over the last several years, the movie industry has gone crazy over Superhero flicks. Both Marvel and DC kept coming out with them. Trying to make every superhero movie from the comics they could think of. It was only a matter of time that Hollywood was going to give: Iron Man, Hulk, Captain America, and Thor their own film by Marvel. At the end of each of those films, they keep teasing the Avengers is on the way. Well, the Avengers is finally here, the wait is finally over. Most of the superheros in the Avengers were played by the original actors from the original films except for Ed Norton as the Hulk. Remember, Marvel fired Ed Norton and was replaced by Mark Ruffalo instead. While it is sad that Ed Norton was not a part of this movie, I thought Mark Ruffalo did a great job playing, Bruce Banner. I have been a fan of these characters for years, and it was awesome seeing them all on the big screen in one movie. Of course, they added a few more characters in the Avengers from the comics. Black Widow (played by Scarlett) and Hawkeye (played by Jeremy).

On with my thoughts on the movie, it was a perfect superhero film. Over the years, Hollywood has been trying to make a great superhero film, but most of the superhero films over the years haven’t been that good. Finally, we get a great one that we can walk out of the theater with smiles on our faces! There are no complaints about this film at all. The film was a good long 2 and a half hours. It was action packed. The film was well acted by everyone in the cast. The pacing of the film was very well done. The action scenes is what impressed me the most. It was an action packed ride for sure and I even liked the fight scenes with Scarlett Johansson. After seeing Scarlett in those fight scenes, makes me wish Marvel would give Black Widow her own movie, solo sometime in the future.

I also loved the visuals and special effects with this movie. I hate most of today’s 3D movies. Today’s 3D is mostly bad, but I was very impressed with the 3D in, “The Avengers”. They did a good job with the 3D this time around. The score of the film is what made you kept watching all the way through. The music composed in the film was brilliant. Why can’t other superhero films be just as good as this? The question that I’m wondering, will, “The Dark Knight: Rises” and “Man of Steel”, be just as good as “The Avengers”? I don’t know about that one. Joss Whedon was a perfect choice of director for “The Avengers”, and I couldn’t see anybody else doing it. I admired Joss Whedon’s work for a while, especially his great sci-fi film, “Serenity”, which is a film that I love. I’m already hoping Joss, will do the sequel for “The Avengers”. I hope he stays on. Of course, Stan Lee, makes a cameo in this movie just like he appears in all Marvel flicks.

This was one of the best superhero films I’ve seen in a long time. I’m definitely getting this film on Blu Ray when it comes out.

Score for “The Avengers” = **** (4 stars as in “Excellent”)
