IJ absolutely works on the page. It would be a disaster filmed. And I hope he'll always be able to do movies. But who knows how the world will be in twenty years.

I know it's the ultimate book that all "I like to read" pretentious people like to namedrop, but I want PTA to make a 20 hour miniseries on David Foster Wallace's Infinite Jest.

Pretty surprised by the runtime.
I wonder if this was more informed by the editing process with Tichenor or if PTA had determined that this would be a lean drama type thing early on in writing.
I hope there's some additional footage like usual.

Better poster for sure! 115 runtime is only 15 minutes shorter than The Master, which as much as I love it could have done with shaving off 5-10 minutes towards the end.

Master Spoilers


I might be one of the few who think this but I would have been happy with an extra 5-10 minutes between Freddie leaving Dodd in the desert and returning to him in England.

Did you guys see the new poster yet? Much better than the first one.

Everyone hates these DC movies, but people still see them, for some reason.

The CGI in that gif is bad enough in and of itself, but on top of it, that's like "The Room"-level unconvincing greenscreen.

That's just the new normal.

Is there more stuff like this in the actual finished film?

It's mostly like this.

Couldn't stick around for the post-credits on this one. Aside from two good performances from Ray Fisher and Ezra Miller, I found it to be nonsense. Even worse than Batman v Superman or Man of Steel. It's as JB says, even the staging and composition of shots feels slipshod. A legion of supervillains at DC must have butchered this film to bits. You can tell it's much too short (and unfinished?). Definitely the production was rushed and two origin stories in the first act never culminate into their own, not really.

Why Steppenwolf and why like this? You're telling me Chris Terrio and Joss Whedon, between the two of them, can't conjure up one villain in the DC pantheon that could thematically bind these characters? I know Whedon was only on for reshoots but he could have patched up the threads that The Avengers achieved.

Seems like it went through the ringer.

I saw this gif and was gobsmacked. Is there more stuff like this in the actual finished film? How do the WB dudes look at this and say "yeah, this is satisfactory for our big flagship movie".
