    Thanks, Brian. Not feeling very well, but it could be worse. 🙂 I’m off to church…

    I really didn’t like the film, either. But then I can’t say I’ve really liked a Zack Snyder film yet. Batman: the animated series and Justice League gave us versions of Batman and Superman with some significant character flaws. It’s just that thanks to things like the Comics Code and the FCC the character flaws that could be alluded to get showboated in Snyder’s film.

    But at no point did I get a sense that this showdown had a compelling reason. Why crib Miller’s story if it’s shoe-horned into before the title characters even meet? Jonathan Kent’s ghost doing the speech about how there’s always collateral damage was the kind of moment that could have been put into, oh, Man of Steel. Cut out the dream sequences and the slo-mo flashbacks and there’s a shorter movie that gets its task accomplished without throwing in parademons for no explicable reason. Yeah, 2% of us know those are from Darkseid’s planet but it felt like they were shoe-horning in every spin-off in advance of making sense of the plot they had.

    Well, I just hated it because it had no plot. Literally, no discernible plot at all. Just word spaghetti on the screen.

    Haven’t seen it yet, might not see it after hearing all the bad reviews. Sounds like a big old computer generated mess with no plot and terrible writing. No thanks.

    Michael, your article is well-written in your unique style as usual, and reinforces one of your big Themes….which I agree with.

    No such thing as “Specially Anointed” and none are truly “Transformed” in the sense that Calvary Chapel and Evangelical Sects who sell the Transformation version of the Gospel present it and sell it.

    Mandatory mediation with BG in tomorrow morning. Prepared for the worst, and prepared to go the distance, though his attorney has floated them just dropping the lawsuit which is a chicken***t move and would be very telling of his guilt by dodging a Jury Trial in that manner.

    No Justice, no Peace. I won’t ever rest until I get some measure of Justice that I can live with.
