Is this new Justice League movie considered good? (Serious question).


(It fits in here given the 4:3 aspect ratio)

Good? No.

Watchable if you like the genre? Absolutely.
Different than the original? For sure.
Better than the original? Arguably.
Good as something standing on its own legs, ignoring the original? Frell no!

The aspect ratio works for me. The runtime does not.

Is this like a recut? I honestly haven't watched any DC/Marvel stuff since 2002, with the exception of Batmans with Christian Bale and Batman vs. Superman on a flight, which was so bad my wife and I were teasing with each other with it for a year. So maybe I'm biased, but I just don't see how the hell these movies have such a large market.

Yes, a new cut with lots added and some removed. To make it more like Batman vs. Superman one could say.

There's a lengthy discussion on it somewhere in the forums. Worth reading through if you're unsure about committing yourself to a 4 hour movie.

Not by me. It’s a waste of valuable IP, but I assume possibly useful as a subscription drive for HBO Max.

Is it considered good? Well, it has a 72% score from the critics and a 95% positive score from the audience at Rotten Tomatoes, and an 8.2 out of 10 on IMDb. So yeah.

The restored version is a whole lot more coherent, has more character moments, and is more epic in style and scope.

I would easily recommend it over more recent DC stuff like "Birds of Prey" or "Aquaman".

If you’re a glutton for punishment, you could try to watch the birds of prey tv show from the late 90s (or maybe early 2000s?). It’s on some free streaming services….

95% positive? Wow! Pretty sure the audience must be mostly people who are into the genre, already saw the original cut and are using that one as a baseline then...

I think i'm about a quarter century too old for this movie:D I can't stand the amount of CGI. The subliminal messaging level Under Armour ad (brief reflection of logo in store window) made me puke in my mouth. Luckily, they've followed it up with a not so subliminal UA ad. Gal Gadot's narration is really bad. I know this is supposed to be a jam packed movie but this tempo makes the flow ridic at places. Oh and Willem Dafoe as waterdude? I still remember him being that evil dude from the first SpiderMan movie. Are we now recycling actors for superhero movies?!

Not my cup of tea:)
