DC Movies Crisis ? JUSTICE LEAGUE in Chaos ?

And sorry guys, I loved the late Richard Pryor,

I loved him too; his comedy albums and specials were terrific.   He’s one of my favorite comedians of all time.  

But in Superman III?  He fits like a fish on a bicycle.    It’s like Robin Williams’ “Toys”; an otherwise brilliant comedian wasted in a horrible movie.

I actually like Richard Lester as a director, he's no Donner, but he's good.

Again, I enjoyed his “Hard Day’s Night” (the movie that make “The Monkees” possible  :laugh:) but his tendency towards slapstick undermines EVERYTHING that Richard Donner fought so hard to accomplish in the first movie by treating Superman with appropriate gravitas and respect.    Zack Snyder doesn’t get it either, to be fair.  He substitutes gravitas/respect with dark-as-a-serial killer’s basement.  That didn’t work either.

But Lester reduces the awe and power of the ‘man of steel’ into a joke.

The best scene from SUPERMAN III - Clark Kent fights the bad Superman - one of the best scenes Chris Reeve played in the Salkinds movie, because it proves that he makes you believe that Clark and Superman are too different persons

I do agree that this is the best scene in S3, which is part of the problem; the wild inconsistency in tone.   It almost feels like a deleted scene from a better Superman movie.  The rest of the movie is so light in tone that it almost floats away.

Well, I still like Lester nevertheless.

I like the stuff he shoot for SUPERMAN II and his humoristic and more romantic, light approach to SUPERMAN III (which feels like  a Silver Age Superman comic book, my favorite version of the character)

What can I say ? I know Chris Reeve hated working with Lester and the Salkinds on SUPERMAN III,  and his main reason to return to SUPERMAN IV was that Cannon Films finally produced his long-time project STREET SMART with Morgam Freeman, but well, thats okay.

Zack Snyder May Have Been Fired Because His Rough Cut Of JUSTICE LEAGUE Was "Unwatchable"
 
Well, Joss Whedon version was "Almost Unwatchable" LOL
 

That Snyder's was unwatchable doesn't shock me.

And I can confirm that Whedon's "salvage" job wasn't much better.

At least Whedon treated the characters kinder than what it seems Snyder would have done. He added a much needed levity that Snyder seems allergic to. That it was a mess of a movie wasn't Whedon's doing. He did his best to half cobble up the wreck that it was.

Because Snyder doesn't understand what a superhero is. For him, they are selfish more than selfless. It's always, somehow, some way, about what's in it for them.
