The frustrating part with how the critics review DCU films is that they make it seem that the flaws of those movies (weak story, weak villain, over reliance on CGI, etc.) somehow only exist in those movies and not the majority of comic book tentpoles today. The main issue with DCU films has not been their flaws but their lack of strengths. To me that is predominant reason why most of them aren't good movies.


That's a fascinating take on quality. Wouldn't it make sense for critics to focus on whatever elements most affected their viewing experience? No-one gives a shit about the lack of tits when there's a dick in their face. If it doesn't get the basic axioms right, a film's add-on strengths are wasted. Ergo the flaws you mentioned: weak story, weak villain, etc.. Affleck was praised like a motherfucker for his Batman portrayal in BvS, yet, the movie was shat on.

Probably just looks like there's a bias because DCU films are mostly legitimately shithouse, and there's a degree of brand expectation: simply not being shit has become a strength. There's a weird lack of faith in Whedon, too; surely he's the best man to right the Snyder wreckage, yet, he's barely been brought up until now; so the unusually strong pre-judgement it's received has all been trailer- and vibe-based.

Critics reviews are now on the net. Not looking good at all.

How does it show 44% RT score on The Dark Shape's screengrab? When I check Rotten Tomatoes, there are no reviews in yet.

RT is blocking the official score on their own website, but they forgot to block it on partner apps like Flixster (where the screengrab is from).

Is it time for the DCEU to disband and build a new series based around the far superior Wonder Woman?

I think WB scrapped the idea of doing another team-up film for a while. The next three movies planned are all solo stuff (Aquaman, WW2, and Shazam). Even the other stuff that have been in discussions (Batgirl, Batman, GrGotham City Sirens, etc.) don't involve the league.

I'd be shocked if we see another film with three or more of the heroes in the next four years to be honest. They'll continue to make the standlone films probably over teamups.

I mean it's stating the obvious but Snyder going from Sucker Punch to being given Man of Steel, Batman vs Superman and Justice League is such a gargantuan fail. It's not like Man of Steel made 500 million. It'd be one thing if this happened after 300 when he was at his hottest but the book was out on him after Watchman and Sucker Punch

By that logic Joss Whedon getting Avengers was even more ridiculous.

The most amazing thing is that this thread is called GOOD reviews discussion, yet three pages in and no sight of good reviews therefore no discussion about them.

Na man those early fan reviews were just being unfair because all fanboys hate DC.

Reviews probably on't be as bad as BvS or Suicide Squad, but they aren't gonna be good. Probably at Man of Steel level.


51 for Justice League, 55 for Man of Steel. :whistle:

I thought this could at least top Thor 3, but anticipation is weirdly low. The saving grace might be how barren the next month is before Star Wars.

Grrrrr... I blame the MCU. Why they gotta always get good RT scores.

I knew it, I knew it from the moment I saw that first messy trailer. WB should have had some balls and fired Zach Snyder. You reap what you sow, this won't outgross Thor.

Reviews make this sound like a good Michael Bay film.
