Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

We went to see Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice when it first came out.

Following his titanic struggle against General Zod, Metropolis has been razed to the ground and Superman is the most controversial figure in the world. While for many he is still an emblem of hope, a growing number of people consider him a threat to humanity, seeking justice for the chaos he has brought to Earth. As far as Bruce Wayne is concerned, Superman is clearly a danger to society. He fears for the future of the world with such a reckless power left ungoverned, and so he dons his mask and cape to right Superman's wrongs. The rivalry between them is furious, fueled by bitterness and vengeance, and nothing can dissuade them from waging this war. However, a dark new threat arises in the form of a third man: one who has a power greater than either of them to endanger the world and cause total destruction!

The DC Comics Cinematic Universe is finally taking shape. While the film borrows very few elements from the classic Frank Miller THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS storyline, director Zack Snyder and main writer David S. Goyer delivered the goods. The instant follow-up to MAN OF STEEL is high on drama, characterization and big fight sequences (as expected from the man behind 300 and SUCKER PUNCH). Apart from the fact that once again Lois Lane seem to be able to teleport herself at the right place at the right time and that this new version of Lex Luthor made me wanna slit my wrist, the film is a lot of fun and filled with testosterone.

And there is Angry Birds The Movie that Isaac really wants to see.
