Superman IV was done by Cannon films. (The first 3 were not)

There was a good doc on Netflix about Cannon, but basically their forte was producing crap.

Have an honest trailer on superman 4, for those lucky enough never to have sat through it.

Superman 3 was ok. The fight in the scrapyard was excellent, Richard Prior was Richard Prior, and the computer at the end was pretty menacing. At least it wasn't trying to insult you.

When even Affleck wants out on your franchise.... bad sign, DC.

What can you tell me about gaming and fun in Charlotte, NC?

Affleck directed Batman would be a movie I'd look forward to.

Affleck acting... not so much. Espeicially after he openly said  "I'll only direct if it isn't shit".

DC seems to be doing their best to sabotage this movie. Affleck no longer directing. The replacement director leaving. And Affleck's script getting heavily rewritten.

What?  You'd think an Affleck written and directed film would be a godsend for them.  Why are they fucking with the golden goose?

From what I've heard (and it's all rumours etc) the problem was that the movie just wasn't coming along and there was no script that Affleck was happy with and as it dragged on he wasn't ready to devote the time needed to direct it and as things are going he doesn't seem that interested in even playing Batman beyond the 3-picture deal he has (Batman vs Superman, Justice League 1+2) due to that lack of a good script(s) and extended timetables.

I finally spent the time to watch this fucking shitfest fully on cable rather than just watching snippets.

I had low expectations and it really failed them. It's like the world's worst Rube Goldberg machine. Snyder would have been better off to just film Miller's DKR frame-for-frame like Watchmen and not try to build continuity with Man of Steel.

Doomsday is seriously one of the worst visual designs I've seen in an action film bar none. You expect hobbits to burst out to stab him in his knees.

The whole thing is soggy, dull, dark brown. The only moments that perk it up are Wonder Woman's appearance and a few of the little character bits of Affleck's Bruce Wayne, who is actually kind of interesting as a variant version of the character.

After watching it, I really said to myself, "Maybe I don't want to see any more superhero movies". Like, I am the biggest comic-book geek and this film just killed my desire for more adaptations of anything.

Yeah I saw it again on cable this week and reaffirmed how bad it was.

I did get a better appreciation for Gal Gadot, though. Also whoever came up with the WW theme really nailed it. Some great composition there.

Cracked takes a stab at trying to figure out why WB hates itself. Or rather it's directors.

For the hell of it, I loaded this up on Netflix last night. I made it 20 minutes in (in disbelief at how schlockybad it was, and I have a HIGH schlock tolerance I liked Last Jedi).

Even watching it from the angle of seeing how bad it could be, I couldn't handle it. What the fuck, DC. I hated your comics, but at least you made a couple good batman movies (with Bale). I still haven't enjoyed a Superman movie.

I ended up watching footage from the Ghost concert in Riverside a few nights ago, on Youtube.
