    Default Justice League - More DC Disappointment?

    So, RottenTomatoes delayed the reveal of the aggregate score for Justice League. Out of an apparent desire to push their new "See it/Skip it" video series. Not at all because WB owns a share of the website and is pushing to hide the less than stellar results.

    But, the score leaked anyway, and the various reviews are of course out there. And they have not been pleasant.

    So, what are your thoughts? Did you want to see it? Do you still want to see it? Will you temper expectations? Or will you just shrug and move on?

    He can really use a hand with this, and any support you can offer is appreciated.

    Like BvS I will stream it someday just out of curiosity but I have no desire to see this in the theater. I'd see Thor 3 before this. The review scores are pretty much how I expected.

    I'm honestly not much of a DC fan to begin with to really be interested in this.

    What i've seen is WW is the only good part.

    So now I think they should just let Patty Jenkins take over the whole thing.

    It will probably be disappointing, but we'll still go see it. I love a cinema trip.

    Saw it yesterday. Aside from the laughable CGI and Batman being turned into quipper (thanks Whedon) it wasn't as bad as I was expecting, certainly better than Man of Steel and Batman vs Superman, but not quite at the level of Avengers.

    It had a below-par opening weekend (especially for a film that cost a mind-boggling $300 million), so will be interesting to see what they do from here with the DCEU.

    Saw it yesterday. It's not like Wonder Woman good or anything but it's way better than Batman vs. Superman. Seems like they may be heading in a slightly less grim dark direction finally.

    The main downfall of this Superman trilogy has been its direction by Zack Snyder. Man of Steel felt like watching Watchmen, Batman vs Superman felt like watching Man of Steel, and Justice League drew too heavily from the buildup in the previous film.
    Pros: much of the interaction between the Leaguers was fun to watch, I loved the origin story of the mother boxes
    Cons: I think they could taken more inspiration from the animated Justice League War in bringing these guys together. Honestly, the big bad showing up was always going to bring them together so why all the will-they-won't-they banter? Also, the fights seemed to lack decent pacing. Zack doesn't remember what made the Watchmen fights so fun to watch?
    Not everyone watches Doctor Who... in fact, some people outright hate it... and you.
