The problem with DC is Nolan. He set the style up and the walked tf away, leaving the Universe (kind of) in the hands of a guy who just wants to make zombie movies with loads of explosions.

Even though I didn't watch the theatrical version, I can't really harp on it too much, as Joss Whedon had to work with what he got and with the movie deadline and studio interference, it's amazing the Josstice League didn't turn out worse. That being said, it's good to see the movie returned to the original director. Zack Snyder did a good job (not great, but good) at telling the story he originally set out to tell.

0:20 Why name it "original Zack Snyder footage" when it's clear as day that it's the latest Snyder Cut footage? I've yet to see any original teasers or trailers in this aspect ratio. This is NOT his original intent. Although he can retcon his intentions to infinity and beyond right now...

I think Darkseid forgot where the mother boxes were due to the injury he sustained. Probably went into some coma and woke up having forgotten- make sense?

To be fair to darkseid forgetting which planet he left them on, he said something like “conquered 100,000 worlds” I don’t even remember what i had for dinner on Saturday, 2 days ago, never mind 100,000 planets.

lmao cant believe all these so-called "critical" movie reviewer actually wouldnt dare to fuck with this garbage. zach, as wonderful of a person he is, should stay the fuck away from every superheroes movie forever, for fucks sake its not even close how dumb he made batman and how stupid superman became in this movie. superman has always supposed to be a good man, not some god shit who MUST protect the world because HE WAS BORN FOR THAT. fuck this piece of garbage.

Raise your hand if you think the "Snyder Cut" is just as shit as the original.

Why are the Animated movies better than their live action counter parts. Just saw Justice League Apokolips and it 1000x better than the incomplete Joss Whedon version and the bloated Zack Snyder version. The Whedon version cut out so much the story didn’t make any sense and Synder version bloated with useless scenes, it tried to pack to much in one story like cartoon characters trying to pack to so many cloths in a suit case, on they touch or move it explodes. I agree with critical drinker, the flash and cyborg needed their own individual movies. I disagree with his positive review of this train wrack of a movie.
anyanyany anyanyany
animations are not meant to be realistic. It's easier to animate quick action scenes than to act them out. btw if you want to compare live action to the DCAMU movies, try JL:War. The basic premise of the story is the same. JL:War is shorter but definitely lacks character intros because the intended audience are comic geeks and those already familiar with DC characters. ZSJL makes up for lack of character intros by introducing brief expositions to previously unseen characters, which results in longer runtime than the average movie. JL Apokolips was basically the finale of the DCAMU universe, wasn't really that great anyhow but pretty decent among the DCAMU lineup. And TCD wasn't really positive of this movie. He mentioned in the beginning that Josstice league had already set a low bar to surpass, and ZSJL surpassed that easily.

THE META Před 2 dny
i HATED the 2017 Justice League. it was just fucking bad. i watched Snyders and yeah i did have to stop and come back a day later cause it was so long, but that was acceptable because the movie for the most part was enjoyable. skip Flash's solo scenes and ignore how fucking stupid the Amazons are for waiting half a day and having a big ceremony to warn the world and it's great. hated that they brought back Jared Leto but liked that they restored his hair and covered hisface in makeup, overal the movie gets graded on a curve because of the original version, so instead of a 7/10 it's more like an 8.5/10
Now that the MCU is basically finished, DC could have picked up fans wanting more superhereo movies. Instead of rushing some not well working movies, they should have made a long time plan and wait with the justice league movies until people are attached to the characters. Basically like Marvel did.. At least the animated DC movies are mostly quite good.

@The Mad Titan I mean, with Iron Man and Captain America gone forever, I have even less enthusiasm for MCU as a whole. The only movie I'm looking forward to is Shang-Chi.

In what universe is the MCU “basically finished”? They’ve got dozens of movies and TV series planned for the next several years.

Honestly, I think, that JL could be better and BvS could be at least decent, if DC/WB had more patience to release introductory movies before BvS and JL. Snyder would make this movie 2,5-3 hours and BvS more focused about... well anything, instead of chasing every plotline possible. Maybe some day. Maybe if they #RestoreTheSnyderVerse (which for me should be just JL 2 and 3) - we'll see more focused movies. Time will tell. Great video :)

I think the Zack Snyder cut of Justice league's soundtrack fails in comparison to Joss whedon's soundtrack for Justice League. Don't get me wrong here I'm not saying Justice League is a good movie no matter how long it is.

I seen it and also got into An argument about who came 1st THANOS or DARKSIDE so being me said Eros and thanatos is Greek I think it represents life and death and is 1000S of years old all because they were arguing which baddie was the original having telling them they're both different comics having said Stan Lee was clever you just thought that I did the Joss Whedon cut I like both waiting to see what you think of the Falcon and the Winter Soldier and the statue Randalls I mean flag smashers

"...it's...narratively rich..." I know the answer Drinker but...were you drunk when you watched this?
BurnsXI Před 5 dny
Some very valid comments but personally I feel it was great. If this was what we got in the theatres I would have been more than happy a few years back. Less orientated about the few plot holes and more about seeing the characters you followed as a boy on the big screen in a film you’ve been waiting about 15 year for. Shame greed and desperately wanting to be an mcu clone got the better of WB and overruled snyder’s vision. Imagine the extended universe we could have had if he had been given time, budget and more films? A truly dark, gritty, violent DC universe. One can dream. Also on a side note, I’m sure it mentions Steppenwolf rebelled against Darkseid at some point in the past and lost, now he has to conquer X amount amount of worlds in the name of darkseid to be allowed back into the fold at his right hand. Kind of a symbolisation of God and Lucifer for some story depth I believe.

I watched it recently, and having never seen the theatrical cut I thought it was pretty good, 7/10 ish, enough to watch a sequel, so then I went and looked the original cut... GOD AWFUL :| so its not mind blowing but it was half decent

Just when you 're starting to realize you spent rather good 3,5 fucking hours despite the boring slowmotion action everywhere, here comes the fucking nonsense epilogue to ruin that surprisingly satisfying feeling you had.... This movie should have been 3 hours maximum.
Francis Garnier
Francis Garnier Před 4 dny
I think Snyder always wanted the epilogue scene to be in the film. And the knightmare scene sets up JL 2 perfectly well. And also, I'd say instead of 3 hours, 3 and a half hours would've been a good run time. A few slow motion and other scenes could've been cut.

I have to say, despite the Drinker's ""alcoholic Scotsman" persona, he really can construct a well-executed review. I wasn't that interested or invested in the Snyder Cut, mostly because I wasn't aware or involved in the background stuff, but now I think I'll give it a shot.

Well I didn't watch the movie and I don't think I will since I'm not a big fan of superhero movies, but it's incredible how stupid people think that just because the movie is 4 hours long, you got to watch it entirely in one day, just do the same as you were watching something on Netflix, after all, it's streaming and you're not in the cinema, you can finish it whenever you want
anyanyany anyanyany
and the funny thing is, ZSJL functions more like a miniseries than a full feature-length director's cut. I watched in on two separate 2-hour sessions and it worked out well for me. Now if ZSJL was released in theaters I imagined the reception may have been different.

"War and Peace" was exciting compared to this crap.
Thanos 2.0? More like the og antagonist of a hero team.
Nick Frost
Nick Frost Před 7 dny
I could be mistaken but I've heard that the 'wheaton' cut was actually the studio stepping in and telling him to cut a 4 hour movie down to 3. Than when he nearly finished, they said cut even more. What I know Joss from is creating great banter between the characters. It's often funny and relatable, I found a lot of that was added in the extra scenes from the Snyder cut.

For one I am concerned that The Drinker is sounding more and more coherent in each successive video. I am worried that he will end up as The Critical Tea-Drinker.

An EFAP discussion on this could be fun! Although I would recommend limiting the discussion participants to maybe two people on each side of where they lean on the movie(s) just to keep the discussion orderly and focused. 😀👆

Now I’m left wondering what is the combination of the two films on look like. The best of both perhaps? No matter what though, I really wish this universe and movie started out completely different than what people were stuck working with and having to try and enjoy.

Whedon cut would probably also had been better if it he was allowed to direct from the beginning and be 4 fucking hours long. Snyder cut is just not fit for cinema release.
anyanyany anyanyany
whedon cut was doomed from the beginning because he wanted to turn JL into some sort of Avengers clone, and it didn't work out well.
shardinhand Před 9 dny
what a waste of movie and time, well done on this one fans.

easily could have been 2.5 to 3 hours at most, So much better then the Josstice league. Looking forward to the next justice league, and giving the green lantern the respect He deserves...

I only watched the Snyder cut once but wasn't Steppenwolf's mistake that he tried to usurp Darkseid? I thought there was a part in there that implied that if it didn't say it outright.

Actually he knew the mother boxes were on earth, along with the Amazon’s, and the Atlanteans? He also knew a Kryptonean had been on the planet, who saw as a threat. What he forgot was that the thing he spent the last 5000 years looking for, the anti life equation was there. He saw the symbols he knew it was there. He lost the battle, spent the next 5000 years looking for what he had just found and then it was found again on the same planet he had last seen it on. It’s a pretty bad over site by Snyder. He also got taken out by Ares and Zeus, the same Ares who stole the power of Zeus and got tanked in a solo by Wonder Women in her movie.

Cyborg was boring and added nothing to the film except for a token minority. Aquaman was an abortion. Aaron Eckhart should have played Aquaman, not that tattooed freak they used.

The snyder cut is a great improvement of this movie is my opinion, the film was over 4 hours long but that didn,t bother me because you did learn more about the caracters in the movie.

Excellent points have already been made so I'll make one I haven't seen yet: the CG are absolutely shit. It's like playing Riven in some parts.
Francis Garnier
Francis Garnier Před 4 dny
@Lokio Pens Loloc the CG was not that good at places but it's nowhere near as bad as Josstice league. And also they had to do all this during lockdown. And the other guy is right, some CGI in recent comic book movies (especially marvel) are obvious. But I'd say Man of steel and BVS were the only films which had flawless CGI.
Lokio Pens Loloc
Lokio Pens Loloc Před 8 dny
@It's Always Something I disagree. It was ridiculous how bad it was.

Get your eyes checked. Although some parts are a bit obvious, it's no worse than any other comic movie to come out in the last 10 years.

the MCU films are just cheap forms of entertainment that for some people keep going to watch even though the quality of movies except for the first iron man have been terrible. The only good super hero live action movies you can point to which are objectively good were all made before 2010s.

It was better than the theatrical cut, but I feel this version was over long and self indulgent. I can see why the studio wouldn't want to release it. It's still hugely messy, and overly complicated. The tone was still depressing, and I can see the movie flopping in the cinema's. It's was interesting, but not much fun.
Francis Garnier
Francis Garnier Před 4 dny
And it was all the studio's fault for not doing solo films for other characters before this one. If they made an aquaman movie and a cyborg or flash movie before this one, this movie would've been 2:30 to 3 hours long.
Milton77 Před 9 dny
I would love to see a discussion between Drinker, MauLer and some others (e.g. Nerdrotic, Robot Head) as they have quite different takes on this cut and I respect them both/all as movie critics

Lynx Před 10 dny
Didn't see Batman v Superman until I prepared for the Snyder cut. I watched the "ultimate" version. I hated BvS, it was a perfect encapsulation of everything Warner has done wrong with this franchise. Zack Snyder's Justice League is a hell of a lot better and I enjoyed it... except for The Flash. Ezra Miller might be less obnoxious than he is in the Whedon cut, but he's still obnoxious, and Flash himself is shoehorned into the story just to include him. He has exactly two moments of legitimately being useful to the plot and in both cases it was artificially shoved in there just to give him something to do.
