On the November 20, 2017 episode of /Film Daily, Peter Sciretta is joined by /Film senior writer Ben Pearson and writer Chris Evangelista for a special episode of the podcast taking a look at the aftermath of Justice League’s opening weekend, its failure at the box office, a fan petition for a Zack Snyder cut, what Joss Whedon’s writing credit means, and Ben Affleck’s future as Batman in the DCEU. At the Water Cooler, we’ll be talking about Las Vegas, David Copperfield, John Carpenter, and traveling. And in the Spoiler Room, we’ll be discussing the changes of the Justice League reshoots and what the end credits scenes mean.

At the Water Cooler:

  • Peter went to Las Vegas for a weekend trip and sees David Copperfield.
  • Chris saw John Carpenter live
  • Ben has been traveling

In the News:

Feedback: Last week we talked about what Warner Bros needs to do to make the DCEU successful moving forward, and asked for your ideas. Timothy in LA wrote in: “One of the pitfalls of the DC movie universe is that they started too big villain-wise. Man of Steel had Zod who is way too big a threat to start off with. His goal was to terraform the earth and destroy mankind. That’s no different from Steppenwolf. There’s been nothing for DC to build up to. And, worse yet – Darkseid is going to do the same exact thing in the eventual sequel.  If WB wants to improve these movies, they need to find something unique in terms of conflict. Flashpoint is a good start with an alternate timeline.  A rule for these movies: no more aliens taking over the world, or villains threatening the whole of humanity.”

Maybe the problem with ‘Justice League’ is that it’s not enough like ‘Batman v Superman’

TwitterFacebook

Justice League is fine. It’s fine! If you trust the Tomatometer, it is 13 percentage points more fine than its predecessor, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

Justice League earned those points by going out of its way to address the criticisms lobbed at BvS, resulting in a film that’s lighter, funnier, more narratively straightforward. 

It’s just not nearly as interesting. And that’s a damn shame.

Whatever its shortcomings, Batman v Superman felt like the product of a single distinctive vision. Maybe not the vision everyone wanted – maybe one that some people found annoying or unpleasant or even downright reprehensible – but a single distinctive vision nonetheless.  Read more…

Review: Snyder’s ‘Justice League’ Has Few Bright Spots, Mostly Dim

Justice League Review

Director Zack Snyder’s Superman reboot, Man of Steel, received mostly positive reviews when it released in 2013, but ultimately underperformed at the box office. The second entry in the DC Extended Universe (DCEU), Snyder’s sequel Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, encountered an overwhelmingly negative response from critics and lukewarm audience sentiment, despite making $ 873 million. Similarly, the third film in the franchise, David Ayer’s Suicide Squad, wound up with terrible reviews but still surpassed expectations. Everything changed this year, when Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman received widespread critical acclaim and overwhelming audience support, becoming one of the best-reviewed superhero movies of all time and the highest-grossing superhero origin movie in history. Now, Justice League hopes to ride Wonder Woman’s coattails and deliver a fun, hopeful film that lives up to the legacy of the iconic superhero ›››

Daily Podcast: Should Our Feelings About The Filmmaker Taint The Movie? Justice League, Tom Cruise, LotR & More

On the November 15, 2017 episode of /Film Daily, Peter Sciretta is joined by /Film senior writer Ben Pearson and writer Hoai-Tran Bui to discuss the latest news, including the Rotten Tomatoes score and box office tracking for Justice League, Quentin Tarantino wants to cast Tom Cruise in his next film, what Christopher Tolkien resigning from the Tolkien Estate means for the future of Lord of the Rings, and Mel Gibson is up for the Joe Carnahan time-loop film Boss Level.

In the News:

In The Mailbag:  Mark S from Phoenix writes in “after all the allegations against many heavyweights in Hollywood, is it acceptable to separate a person from their art. Can I still laugh at Woody Allen’s “Midnight in Paris”, can I still be in awe at Roman Polanski’s “The Pianist”, can I still be mesmerized by Brett Ratner’s “Red Dragon”? And not solely the filmmakers; “Manchester by the Sea” was one of my favorite films last year, but the more I heard about Casey Affleck and his allegations, the more I felt guilty for praising a man who has committed such atrocities.   We all make mistakes, but for those whose actions are unforgivable, do you think we should still celebrate their cinematic achievements?  Love the podcast, keep it up guys!”
