Revisiting this thread after years.....and now with the horrible arc of the DCU, my opinion feels ever more relevant. MOS was barely ok, BVS was plain bad and JL was one of the worst movies of recent...

I was going to counter all those points but realised there was no need, it's clear we both see the film in different ways. For me its a derivative, been there, done that crime drama. I can however...

You don't think they have all been done to death? Plenty of more accurate adaptations of Holmes are around and lots to do with Poirot and Marple.

Re: Are people being too hard on Kathleen Kennedy for Star Wars?

Look, she is massively important to the direction Star Wars has taken, the pro feminist slant or the issue of sexuality bla bla bla. Star Wars was supposed to be a series aimed at kids and families,...

Re: Will anybody go to see a new or old Woody Allen movie? Ever?

I never liked his movies, maybe they arent aimed at a British city boy but for me, they were boring boring boring. With all these allegations in his personal life, it makes it worse.

Re: The fate of 1917 at the oscars and how it was inevitable

I am not sure about this whole "sell out" nonsense...
