BvS waa randomly on last night, though I suspect to build an anticipation for JL, and I ended o catching the last five hours of it.
No, I missed the first twenty-five minutes to half hour of it, but thought I’d have it on, and have decided that I just can’t watch the theatrical cut. It’s such a mess where nothing happens apart from plot point three getting to plot point four, and so on. It’s just a bunch of scenes that, actually, don’t make sense as they’re all too short.
This was my second time on the theatrical (after going to see it). I was going to run the director cut before seeing the new JL, but when I saw it on last night I thought that might provide an adequate refresher...but no. No wonder I didn’t like it when it came out!
Although neither is a "good" film, at least the DC isn’t so choppy and workman-like in just plodding through the plot points, seriously, in the theatrical, some scenes are just one line of dialogue each between one or two characters, and so short. Nothing progresses and then suddenly Wayne randomly starts looking at the League members. Very poor.
The DC doesn’t fix everything, if anything, but at least it’s more of a movie, more of a full experience, for this particular story. I may well still run it again before JL, although I’ll probably skip MOS. I’ve only seen that three or so times, which I think it enough for me!
As far as Imax goes, apparently JL is safety framed for 1.85, so one could blow it up. I may well do this with the disc, at least to 1.66, to give it a bit more width. Ideally there should have been two choices: a Snyder-preferred 1.43 black and white framing, and an "audience friendly" color (even if desaturated or graded) at widescreen-filling 1.85. Alresdy 1.85 felt weird for such an epic film on the theatrical, but 1.43 is going to feel awfully "TV" for something like this...
