This Year In Film / Re: Justice League

A critical reevaluation of a C+ movie?

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

This Year In Film / Re: Justice League
« Last post by modage on November 20, 2017, 05:00:01 PM »
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

Netflix was rumored to be distributing, but it apparently is Amazon



Quote
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

Whoa, story checks out. Not sure if WONDERSTRUCK counts as indie or studio but that's the only possible American indie that I liked this year.
