That's right. The best movie of the year is a four hour long recut of a botched movie from 4 years ago. There is no movie that comes close to being this good.
First, it just goddamn rules. Wonder Woman inspirationally murders a bunch of terrorists in front of a wide-eyed schoolgirls. A flashback shows a Green Lantern get destroyed by Darksied. Superman comes back to life and fucking devastates the Justice League in a fight.
Then in the climax, after being sad all movie, Steppenwolf gets mutilated by Superman in what I can only describe as a the most amazing war crime ever committed to film.
Second, its a complete repudiation of that little ginger sex creep, Joss Whedon. After Zack Snyder had to step away from the first cut of the movie after a family tragedy, the studio brought in Joss Whedon to get his fat grubby fingers all over it.
He's always annoyed the ever loving shit out of me and his "jokes" in the theatrical cut of Justice League are no different. Snappy, snarky dialogue like he infected Marvel with disgusts me to my core. When that red headed cretin got outed for being a sexpest, the world became a better place.
Zack Snyder being given the money to undo the molestation Whedon gave this film is a feminist victory.
Finally, the process to get this cut produced by Warner Bros is amazing. Ever since the Whedon cut was released in theaters, fans have been correctly and righteously angry. They began a four year campaign to get Warner Bros to #releasethesnydercut.
And what was that campaign? Harassment and bullying.
They harassed studio executives and producers. They bullied any journalist who called them out. They doxxed, memed, and threatened anyone who dared to stand up to them. Journalists cried. Executives cowered. And after four years, something beautiful happened: they won.
The bullying worked. Warner Bros gave Zack Snyder $75million to finish the movie the way he wanted to make it.
And that's something to celebrate.
M Night Shyamalan made Fauci the villain of a movie about a beach that makes you old.
