Movie Meltdown - Episode 420

This week we get our own legion together to discuss Justice League directed by Zack Snyder (and arguably Joss Whedon). It's an epic conversation about the things we liked along the way and just what didn't work in this linchpin project that may or may not be holding the whole DC cinematic universe together. Will the presentation and performance of this movie spell doom for our superheroes?

Meanwhile at the Hall of Justice, we also go into... The Punisher, Pacific Rim Uprising, biblical movies, Deadpool, Joss Whedon, once the sun went away forever, plot holes, Ben Affleck, is that part of the rewrite, can we get that disk with Ares, Mandy Lane, the organization of this movie... just stopped... caring, Vigilante, you are setting yourself up... for yourself, glue-sniffing induced dreams, Henry Cavill, Ice Pirates, I feel like that character was wated in the context of this movie, Starship Troopers, Amy Adams, flaming dumpster fire vs. smoldering dumper fire, Noah, being a billionaire, hammering the dead family, Lord of the Rings, I can't believe that wasn't edited out, J.K. Simmons, Ghost in the Shell, not even sticking to it's own story anymore, it was entertaining... ish, Jeremy Irons, on the spectrum, Gal Gadot, the X-Men thing all over again, if they are going to take such liberties, corporate mentality, Jesse Eisenberg, very obviously placed Mercedes, feels super-forced, Ray Fisher, talking to your string of lights, Cyborg stripped down, Diane Lane, Marvel's philosophy, Skyrim the villian, being coked out, Ezra Miller, Hollywood nepotistic bullshit, I don't think they are fully listening, The Big Bang Theory, it reminds me of ThunderCats, bookshelves are smell-proof, cliche-forced geek humor, Jason Momoa, bit of a bumbler, interpersonal stuff, the strings would go down into the grateholes, a kids' movie, the dark sinister twerp, Zack Snyder, upskirts and shirtless dudes.

Spoiler Alert: Full spoilers for Justice League. So see the movie before listening... if you feel we could actually spoil the movie for you.

"There's just so much weird stuff in this movie where you feel like... something is being pushed on you or insinuated, and you don't understand where that source is coming from... if that makes any sense?"
