400 years from now when the Earth is an apocalyptic wasteland from the ravages of climate change the remnants of man will gather in the ruins of the last museum on earth, a Costco, and hoist into the air a Blu Ray DVD of Justice League: The Snyder-Cut and declare it to be the zenith of art. As it hovers in the air, transcendent as if from on high and light beaming behind it, beneath it is a pit as if from hell where cries of the damned yell "RANDIAN!" "SNYDER-BRO!" "WHY CAN'T YOU BE IN COLOR!" and arms of MCU heroes are stretched out from the pit exclaiming "SAVE US FROM DISNEY AND THE FANBOYS!" and the Snyder-Cut Blu Ray whispers back "No."

It sounds like Watchmen's the zenith there

Neither Man of Steel nor BvS is anywhere near as cynical as Watchmen, a film which ends with space 9/11. Compare the use of Hallelujah in Watchmen with the use of Hallelujah in the JL trailer.

Here's the mythical, logic defying way to understand that Snyder did not want to actually make a Batman movie where he gets raped:

He did not have Batman get prison raped in BvS.

But he could've been, and that's the important thing

quote:

Yeah, he looks cool while he kicks a dude into a grenade he's still portrayed unsympathetically for large portions of the film.

I think BvS is largely a boring and ugly movie but I think something it did that was very clever was initially portraying Batman as angelic, and Superman as a fallen angel instead (and Lex inverting that to reflect his brokebrains). Batman even gets to do the whole "Don't be afraid" thing

Flying is cool but the rest of this is instilling a deep, primal apprehension in me?

The only people who are going to be really surprised by the Snyder cut are the people who denied it existing and/or people who think it'll be the exact same movie with a few different scenes and more consistency between scenes. That's not to say people who followed the development of this thing won't be but I think they have a better idea of what this is compared to the people who poopoo'd it or simply didn't care.

I don't think anyone who has heard anything about this one way or the other is going to be surprised, just the people who had no idea this was an entire thing

The weird part is that this person keeps saying "for those of you saying he is an alien, he was raised like a normal person in Kansas!" which, fair, but this is missing the point that even beyond his strange origins these are also strange circumstances.

Like "I know exactly how someone raised in Kansas would talk to a billionaire dressed like a bat whose car he just wrecked with his body, and this ain't it chief!"

I mean, I know what'd I say in that circumstance

The primary difference is that Ledger is repeatedly shown to be right, while Lex is definitively wrong.

It's been a while but isn't the climax of the film that he's dumb and wrong except for like one lovely rear end in a top hat who Tom Lister Jr. shuts down?

Not really. More of his plans worked than didn't and the only reason the last one didn't was because of one guy who didn't pull a trigger that he absolutely thought should be pulled. He thought it should happen, but didn't want to be the one to do it. Tiny Lister's character was the only one on screen who outright rejected the proposal.

I remember people being angry it was called Batman v Superman instead of Superman v Batman, because putting Batman first showed that Snyder didn't care about Superman and had just made Man of Steel in order to get to do Batman. I also remember a lot of "snarky" commentators making fun of the "v". Devin Faraci especially kept harping on that.

That sounds accurate

At this point I don't recognize "boring" as a criticism. Malick films can be accurately described as "boring", but to say so is a worthless comment.

I was chatting with friends online again while playing dead by daylight and the Snyder Cut came up - the halo logo on the sword is making waves lol

That was pretty much the whole conversation, no one wanted to watch it because they didn't care about or didn't like the theatrical one and one thought that Snyder was a nazi, which I couldn't dissuade him of (yes I actually tried lol)

The one guy aside these are also the guys who kept quoting Zod while playing Halo and liked Moss but not as a Superman movie lol

I could believe that Snyder makes a really great comic film. What's especially hard to wrap my head around is that its the same movie as Justice League, just the Extended Edition with a few minutes here and there restored and maybe a bit of overdub, and somehow that transforms it from a downright stinker snoozefest into a really really solid superhero movie.

That's what everyone said about BvS too and the version I saw was poop out of a butt
