Like many people, I saw Batman V Superman: Dawn Is A Dish Detergent over the weekend. I actually went with a small group and got a small range of opinions. My group included:
- Me. Duh.
- My thirteen-year old niece. She’s a sucker for the Marvel movies, and since I was going home for Easter, I asked her if she wanted to see the movie. She said yes.
- My brother. Another geek, mostly. I had initially asked him if he wanted to come along with our niece and myself and bring his oldest son (age 9) too. My brother wanted to see the movie first before he took his son. Understandable. Then he asked me to get another ticket when I bought them.
- The open seat. Here’s where everything got complicated. The original person I got this for was my sister-in-law, who is not a geek. At all. But, she got sick Saturday. My brother asked his son. The kid wanted to go at first, then changed his mind for some reason no one understood. The last ticket was eventually used by my brother’s father-in-law, of little geek persuasion.
So, tickets in hand, this motely group went to see the movie. Review and SPOILERS after the cut.
[A note from Jimmy: I’ve hijacked this post and put my thoughts at the end. They are spoiler free, but since you have to read through Tom’s excellent review to get there…I guess it matters little.]
