Re: What movie did you watch last night?

Thanks Bryan. Now I'm even more interested. Initially I thought that was the worst casting in the history of film, and I thought for sure it would ruin the film. For the record, I still think that but I'll try to be more open minded.

Re: What movie did you watch last night?

Haha, well, since I'm an infallible professional movie critic, you can't disagree with me . . . Oh, wait . . .

Just rewatched the trailer, and you don't get any sense of his performance in it. Especially the part played for humor. Actually, I think every bit of humor in the whole show was revealed in the trailer. For the record, I like Amy Adams in this too.

I'd be interested in your take on Lex Luthor in this show after you've seen it.

Bryan, what did you think of Jesse Eisenberg's Lex Luthor? I've seen trailers but I was wondering how it worked out at length.

my opinion. Lex was the worst part of the movie. Eisenberg is one of the worst castings I've seen in quite a while. I like the guy in his films, but this was just bad casting all around. Not to mention a mediocre movie that certainly deserves it's rotten tomatoes score

Affleck on the other hand just crushed it. He was one of the best Batman's I've seen beside Keaton (I always thought Bale was way over rated)

How was Wonder Woman?

her plot point was obviously shoehorned in, but palatable... However Gal Gadot actually did really well as Diana/WW as the character. I was initially going to write her off as a poor casting choice but I was pleasantly surprised

Re: What movie did you watch last night?

Well, there you have it. Since my familiarity with DC comics is about zero, I probably misunderstand Lex Luthor's character completely.

And there goes my dubious credibility as a movie critic too.

But then again, that might be why you saw it for what is, as interpreted by Jesse eisenburg. I've always thought he was too much of a sniveler to deliver a greet Lex.(gene Hackman?) I think he was typecast when he did the voiceover on Rio(good movie). You can critique. We won't hold this against you!

I remember covering this with you a little. I see you feel the same way. I'm going to try do be ambiguous going in. Glad to hear Affleck was great. I also think Christian Bale was a little overrated. Still solid though.

Not offended here, gentlemen. I've seen some very poorly rated movies that I thought were okay, and some very well-rated ones that had me shaking my head. Good thing we're not all the same - that'd be pretty boring.

And any time I get to use that rofl smily, I'm happy. Just looking at it almost makes me laugh out loud. I've always loved the HTS smilies!
