Hey guys, Ben back with another free blog. This week's free blog, I will talking about Batman v Superman. If you guys haven't watched this movie yet, I would recommend not reading this since there might be some spoilers. So fair warning! Anyways, lets get into how I thought about it. So before I start, I liked the movie. I thought it was a good movie in general, but there were somethings that could be improved in my eyes. I also thought that Ben Affleck did an amazing job as Batman. He has been getting so much hate before and after the movie's release, but I think he nailed that role. I personally think that Christian Bale was a better Batman, but Ben Affleck didn't do a bad job. Now, lets start this off with a bad thing about it. One major problem about the movie was the pacing. In this 2 and a half hour long movie, about the first hour was dedicated to just a lot of dialog which isn't bad at all. But I think that the pacing was off, the movie had to explain Batman's, Superman's, and Lex Luthor's lives. Mainly how Batman and Superman see differently on things and how they learn to hate each other, while Lex is devising a plan to get them to fight each other. But it was just all over the place. We had a flashback here, and then a scene of Superman trying to cover a story on Batman, and then Lex talking to them both at some random event that I still don't know what it is. It was just so confusing. There were also some very confusing dream sequences, mainly for Batman. Some were memories, and some were flashbacks. And there was so indication of when Batman was dreaming or not, so it just seemed like the movie took some crazy turns out of nowhere. There were some ghost, I think of Superman's father as well that was never explained. But getting out of the first hour, where most of the fighting begins, most of the confusing parts, and all the problems get solved. And this is where things got a lot different, and that is the killing. Both Batman and Superman aren't really that big on killing, and Batman has a strict, no killing rule, and as Superman is still very moral. But that was all thrown out of the window, we had Batman shooting people and blowing them up, while Superman seemed to enjoy killing. If you saw in the Middle East scene, before Superman blasted the Terrorist out of the building, he smiled... that was just strange to me. Well other than all that, the movie was pretty good. The fight scenes where good, especially with the the big alien monster. (I forgot his name) I do feel they kind of screwed up with killing Superman, because they didn't have any good way to bring him back to life that we know of. So that is my very long review of Batman v Superman, I hope you guys enjoyed this free blog, and I will see you guys next week! Bye!
