I agree that even if I don't remember a lot of BvS it was cool that it looked different.

I think the more and more these giant franchise movies are made by a committee with directors swapped out behind-the-scenes and producers/studios exerting more and more control over product, the more we will look back fondly on the time when something as crazy as BvS was even allowed to happen.

A critical reevaluation of a C+ movie?

But you're right that the whole debate about these movies being funny or not is maddening.

BvS is bad. Its ambition exists, but it's such nonsense that I don't see what is there to defend.

A lot, actually! We don't need to re-litigate it in this thread but I feel like most of the major criticisms of the film were pretty lazy and for the most part answerable/defensible in the context of a comic book film. (ie: Snyder is the worst, why can't this be more fun/why is this so dark?, why is Superman so mopey?, why is Lex's plan so convoluted?, etc.) I still feel like BvS is maybe a C+ overall (or a B- if you're super generous or a total DC Comics stan like me) but it was treated like it was an F and it really didnt' deserve it. Perhaps now that Justice League has been shat upon us, there will be a critical re-evaluation down the line.

Oh and I liked MUDBOUND, which I just remembered was not financed by Netflix, but purchased at Sundance.

I grabbed two for NYC, Sunday and Monday, and will attempt to attend both, for we all know how those first PTA screenings can be.

The Director's Chair / Re: Noah Baumbach
« Last post by BigSock on Yesterday at 02:57:51 PM »
Netflix was rumored to be distributing, but it apparently is Amazon

Plot details are hard to come by, but Iím told that Driver and Johansson will play a married couple (she works in television), and that Robinson will play their young son.

I believe Baumbach is producing the untitled film with David Heyman, and there have been whispers of a distribution deal with Netflix, though I have yet to confirm that element. It would make sense, of course, since Netflix released Baumbachís latest film
